  1. This. Indispensable if you're serious about sourdough.
  2. Crikey! What's this about KK owners and Kats? We adopted an Ewok in December. He has an entirely different idea for how to use a KK. Suffice to say he thinks it's his.
  3. Not a bad idea, although mine tend to have red stripes of sauce dripping everywhere when depanning. One thing I’ve changed in my DSP is that I now use my sourdough focaccia recipe for the crust and make sure to get about 1/3 of the cubed cheese pushed into the dough during final assembly. Makes for little cheese bombs in the crust.
  4. Welcome! The answer to your first question is yes. The answer to your second question is no, but it’s nice to have for overnight cooks. The answer to your third question is yes.
  5. Some guys buy fast cars as they age. I buy fast optics. 😳
  6. M3, globular cluster with signs of old age (golden stars), and yet a youthful vitality (blue stars). And I…ummm…did a thing. I added another time machine. The TEC140 is the KK of telescopes. Made by a guy named Yuri, who is the Dennis of optics. Key difference: it burns holes in your wallet instead of charcoal. Found this one being sold by an aging gent near my previous home near DC. Been sitting in a case for years. He never used it. Here it is all tricked out with all of the goodies that make it an astrophotography machine.

    What are these?

    If I'm not mistaken, those are bracket "extenders" for lack of a better term. The side tables have brackets that enable them to be hung in a "wings down" position, but they don't work if you also use the grill hooks. So I think Dennis created some extenders at one point to enable you to hang your side tables even with the hooks attached. I don't have these, but that's what it looks like to me.
  8. Some reprocessing last weekend. I give you my fancy new North American and Pelican Nebulae. And let us zoom in to the feature known as the Cygnus Wall. The universe is pretty freakin' awesome, y'all. And the earth's not flat. Just sayin'.
  9. What happens next is that you give us a play-by-play, and we increase the anticipation by torturing you with all of the awesome cooks you're missing out on. Part of the hazing ritual. Soon enough you'll be on the other side. So plan those first cooks.
  10. We taught him well. You've advanced to level 2!
  11. M13. The Hercules Globular Cluster. Hundreds of thousands of stars gravitationally bound and densely packed. The golden stars are nearly the age of the universe. The blue ones are newer and the result of collisions and interactions between the ancient ones. I’ve also started a fancy new website to show my pics in higher resolution, as well as some science talk for newbies. Deep Space Crozet
  12. Looks great, but then I’m biased toward olive and gold. Congrats!
