    A bit cranky.

    It's summertime so we don't have to be up at the crack of dawn to get the kid ready for school, yet one of the neighbors thinks 5:30 AM is the time for power tools.

    Record it, aim speakers at his house through an open window, and play it back at 1am

    if we choose to think the best of people, perhaps he is making an early
    start at baking cupcakes for the whole neighbourhood.

    Exasperated.

    It seems like every time I turn on my computer, there's something else that wants an update.

    Last week was... Feature update to Windows 10, an update for Net Framework & a Security Update for Adobe Flash Player.

    I login today to find another Security Update for Adobe Flash Player, Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool and a Cumulative Update for Windows 10 waiting for me.

    After that Firefox wants to update but unknown to me, it's one of those irritating ones that reset all my browser settings on it.

    All the important stuff was still there but it takes me 30 minutes to craft it back into MY browser again.

    A bit tired and I'm probably not going to sleep any better tonight.

    I've got to get up at 4:30 AM to go pick up the dude who rakes the cat sh*t and does the other bits of landscaping we need.
    Sure, not having a car of his own is a pain in the ass but unsurprisingly there's not a lot of folks in the cat waste removal business so I'll put up with it for the price he charges.

    I have to be over at his place at 5:30 AM so he can get a start and finish it up before it gets too hot.

    saw this online article today about a famous Bavarian German Breadmaker,
    who's all over Germany famous particularly for his traditional soft Pretzels

    got me homesick, my Oma makes these, too, and they're awesome!!

    This German Baker Makes What May Be The World’s Best Pretzel
    In the tiny Bavarian town of Dachsbach, Arnd Erbel bakes pretzels and pretzel breads the old-fashioned way.

    https://getpocket.com/explore/item/t...=pocket-newtab

    A few days before I visited baker Arnd Erbel in his southern German bakery, a Hamburg newspaper described him as a “bread god.” Erbel’s breads are renowned among baking connoisseurs and served in many of Germany’s best restaurants, but he was not comfortable with deification. “I’m not a bread god,” he told me in his bakery kitchen after I arrived. He sees himself more as bread’s humble servant: “My being is here to help with sourdough.” With his bald head and round glasses Erbel appears more monkish than almighty. It was fitting, then, that he was baking Breze (as they are called in Bavaria), German-*style soft pretzels, a baked good that originated in European monasteries in the Middle Ages. While Americans tend to see soft pretzels as a simple snack eaten at ballparks or mall food courts, Germans cherish them as a national symbol. Pretzels were once so special that Medieval painters would dab a few on the table of the Last Supper, and for centuries, pretzel-shaped signs were the emblem of bakers and their guilds, hanging above doorways as a symbol that you could find fresh-baked breads inside.
