Like I don't have enough to do- I decided to try baking bread from scratch. I've done it before- 40 years ago! Didn't turn out too bad, guess I should have checked how to braid!

okay now, @mrsclem , since you have SO MUCH else to do, surely you're going to need SOMEONE to taste-test your lil creations, right? Ahem, I'll take time to step away from my job here (I mean, not like I make much bread around here, ya know?) and volunteer. Wouldn't want the Lotus Queen or any of her family to get sick, now would we? Not that I think this is going to happen, but JUST TO BE SURE, CAREFULLY place the three in the pic above into a nice, well insulated UPS box (can't have them cooling off, dontcha know!) and stick a Michigan tag all over it with my address...what? What's that you say? @combatwombat 's been seen lurking around your house??? And @Mmathis is sitting in a get-away-car near the curb? Oh, this is NOT going to end well....



;) :p :p :cool:

Went over and moved our old boat to a new slip so our old slip is ready for the new old boat. We have 3 coming to see it maybe one will be a buyer. So much scam out there.
Had to do it today low winds, tomorrow 33 mph, rest of the week higher winds then we want to deal with.

Had 4 other boaters jump in and help moving the lines moving the boat, whew no wrecks. The slip is a lot smaller than our slip. A tight fit.

Waiting for this so called "Atmospheric River" to hit us. They keep saying tons of rain tonight, tomorrow and Tuesday w/rivers flooding. Was rather warm and lots of wind today.

@mrsclem They look wonderful, and I’m sure they smell heavenly — love the smell of fresh-baked bread! The test is in the tasting. I used to bake bread, as well, but it always tasted sooooo good coming out of the oven that one buttered piece would lead to another, and another……. So now I just buy it from the store.

They taste great but they deflated in the oven. Think I over worked the dough. Hubby has already killed most of one loaf so sorry guys! Going to stick to something a little more simple next batch.

Most have no idea how much wind plays with a boat especially when coming into the marina and docking and the 10's of thousands of dollars your maneuvering around. And to have someone come look at a boat god only knows if they know what they are doing. more then likely they have no insurance for a boat and if they hit someone else it's a night mare

We a guy that is working on his 75 foot boat drive ours. He slid it in like it was meant to be there, maybe 6 inches on each side.
No macho from us, ie let us do it we know what we are doing!
The other boaters and I handled the ropes, pulling it in the last bit. Then I did all the tie down.

We have to keep good insurance on the boat or they kick you out. Now you could insure show the policy then cancel, but no thanks. There are some darn expensive boats there.

He is going to help us learn the new boat, fly deck, side thrusters etc for the price of some honey!

that's interesting; I'd have thought insurance for boats would be similar to how auto insurance is here in Mi (but then, maybe other states don't do it this way) in that we have no-fault. I KNOW why they did this but sure makes it easier for the less than responsible drivers to have a license and continue afterwards. I'm sort of a 'owner responsible' person, so this has always ground on me a bit.

I would never drive a boat without insurance. We even have captain insurance on it so if we have someone else driving , a captain, if he harms the boat all is ok. The boats REPLACEMENT value, not what we paid, is 600k we have it insured at purchase cost, the insurance is more than the cost of every car we have insured for a year and more than our house insurance.

In the insurance, for the marina, you need to have named storm removal, ie your boat sinks it will be recovered and removed, gas spillage , level must be at 900k plus, don't recall the limit, ice damage, if you have your boat winterized and the engines get ice damage you are covered. Etc etc
And of course running into someone else.

I did not see any mention of no fault in the policy docs.

lol I was driving my Dad's pink station wagon. New driver taking one of the siblings somewhere. Trying to cross 4 lanes of traffic. Someone behind me started slamming on their horn, I went thought it was safe, it wasn't. Caught the back corner of the car. Of course as the police are there my dad drives up on his way home from work.

I NEVER AGAIN let a blowing horn make me do something I was not ready to. And if heavy traffic I turn right then come back.
