Sorry folks, I know it's been over a week. No I haven't stopped wanting to make bread. I geeked out last weekend. Spent hours upon hours of reading scientific studies and old documents. Documents from the 17 and 1800's. Just to find the answer to a question I had. So I not only didn't make any bread. But I ran out of bread on Friday. So yes. Today I'll be making lots of bread. I'm sticking with my go to recipe. Because i have it memorized.  :D Hey, it's good eats. So my experiment with the autolyse technique and hole milk will have to wait till next weekend.

What I will be doing today is a partial autolyse. Letting the dough sit completely mixed for an hour before I kneed it. It was stated on the bread forum by someone that this worked. Making it faster and easier to kneed the bread. By using the bread recipe I'm completely familiar with it will be easer to see how this will effect the outcome of the bread. I'm thinking of treating this first hour as the 'proofing' rise. The first rise before you divide the dough into loaves. This way I wont have to change the amount of yeast I use. I'll simply kneed, divide and then let the dough re rise a second time before baking. The amount of time the yeast will be in contact with the four starches will be the same.  I'll post and let you know how this worked out.

President Trump went to his resort after paying his type of
respect for the school shooting. Then at his resort he went
to a disco party. Heaven forbid should anything get in his
way of his enjoyment. Not even the deaths of 17 at a
school.

He tweeted saying the FBI should quit their russia investigation
and find people planning to shoot Americans. Well the section
of the FBI investigating him isn't responsible for finding shooters.
they are investigating those who work to tear down our country.

He also tweeted that Putin was probably laughing after the indictment
of Russia for election interference. It's likely heads are rolling after
this exposure instead.

Trump only makes himself look bad with his tweets. He should
throw his smart phone in a drawer and leave it there. He should be
getting advice before making any statements. Instead he things he
is so smart he can do it all on his own.

Some GOP supporters are saying that down ballot votes shows Russias
activities had no effect. Well people don't vote the party line as they
did in 50 years ago. I think the Russians mainly want to discourage the
American public from believing in the FBI and other law enforcement. To
disrupt our economy. To divide us as they know division makes us weaker.

Again I ask why does Trump support and protect Russia? Why does he
attack everyone who speaks against him but Putins Russia? What is the
power he has over almost everyone who spends time with him? Highly
respected people follow his lead soon after working for him. Does he
threaten to ruin them if they don't? Perhaps the truth will come out
eventually. Hopefully sooner than later.

Well, I can say I had a good time!  I am glad I went!  And I wouldn't have if it weren't for people here in Furtopia.

Peter Rabbit was a blast, and what would you know, sitting right behind me, three people (one of which was wearing bunny rabbit ears),  :orbunny: and they were older than I!
Ha!  If I had only known that it was going to be that way, I would have joined in on their fun!  As they left, one turned around and complimented me about my T-shirt, with an anthro-kangaroo on it.  We both suspected we were of the same mind set ... or of the same fur perhaps.  Too bad I didn't have time to stick around to talk more.

And as for Paddington 2, well, that was a good one indeed!  There is even a scene or two which contains what could loosely be considered a fursuit.
Everyone in the theater was laughing and being themselves.  I was also not the only odd ball there either!  There were many!
I was amazed, it seems you really can have fun, if you allow yourself to do so!

Never had that problem. By far most people think it's as normal as having a dog! And even when people think it's strange, they never care enough for it to bother them whilst watching. It's also only at kid's movies, if you're going to a movie rated 12+ all strangeness is just gone, animated or not. I don't know how big the cultural differences are between us, but where you live there should be a bunch of people who go to movies alone as well.

Also, no, you won't be arrested. People can call the police all they like, but they have something much better to do than check in on someone watching a children's movie in public. I'd highly question what the police is doing if they don't!

Nothing wrong with going alone. I always go with a friend or dad because I like to share the experience.

Well well, it seems the Russians did try to affect our election in
2016. 13 Russians were indicted by the special counsel with solid
evidence for doing just that. They best stay in the arms of
mother Russia or they may find them selves facing prosicution
here in the U.S.A.

President Trump claims this proves he had no involvement because
it started in 2014. uess he forgot that was right after he returned
from Russia after his beauty contest there. Perhaps he made a deal
with Putin to help him run for president. It's not likely we will know
for sure. There has to be a reason for Trumps protection of russians
interests other than just saying we would be better off with them as
friends. Putin is only friendly when he gets his way, and if Trump
doesn't understand that he is the fool Putin thinks he is. Trump
needs to put all the sanctions on Russia like Congress told him
to do.

It's now been reported that well over 100 people in the Trump
administration don't have permenant security clearance. Yet they
handle some of our deepest secrets. It apparently due to many of
Trumps picks are rich people who have ties around the world. This
exposes them to blackmail if they have deals or something
darker in their background. So far several of Trumps appointments
have shown how loose they are with tax payer money. The guy
he appointed for the eviromental agency has spent 10's of thousands
for first class plane tickes and for security people to protect him from
the public. He claims he was being bothered by the people who were
flying Coach. Appearnely asking embarrasing questions. Personally
I think these people whould have to show proof of danger to  their
person or family to get governlment protection.  It's likely due to
these rich people who are parinoid due to having a lot of money, and
feel they need body guards.

Trump wants to replace food relief for the poor with food delieeries
instead of giving them money. Talk about creating a huge government
agency. It would rival Amazon with warehouses and distribution
across the nation to hand out 18 million boxes of food every month.
It's much cheaper to send a check for the poor to buy food with. This
also helps the economey since these people go to grocery stores
and farmers markets to buy food.  Of course Trump and the GOP
point to the few people who spend their food money inapproperatly
as an excuse to do stupid things like this. With all the allergys
people have these days would the distribution centers know who
ccan't eat peanuts or bread?

The GOP and Trump are saying we need more mental help care, yet
they have been cutting billions form medicaid which helps pay for
such care. Seems the GOP and Trump have no connnection between
their brains and their mouth.

It may be a cultural difference. Movies are still seen as more of a group activity, especially among teenagers, but it isn't unusual at all to see people buying tickets and entering the theatre alone. Several of my close friends love films, and will go and see them alone as a preference. One of them is a large, burly man with long hair and a beard to mid-chest. He is intimidating looking, but he will cheerfully amble into a cinema alone to watch happy, fluffy films, animations, or rom-coms. And no one will give him a second glance, because he gives off an air of not caring, being comfortable and happy. As that is the best part; when it comes to films, over here, no one cares what anyone else is doing as long as you are not inconveniencing them. The vast majority of people wouldn't even notice that someone is seeing a film alone, let alone care about it. And if they do notice or care, it will be for all of five seconds and then they will forget.

Especially as there are now a lot of adults who grew up with animated films, who still enjoy them. Animation isn't seen as solely a thing for children any more. My partner's parents watch more animated films as nearly-retired adults than I ever did as a child.

So yeah: Even if people do care, so what? Are they people you will ever even see again? Almost certainly not. So why should you worry what they think of you for a minute or two? And you will not be arrested for watching a film alone, peacefully, not bothering people or being inappropriate. That is just stupid that someone even suggested that.
