365:28The plan for today was obviously to capture the moon. We are however still in the thrall of some biblical weather conditions and the moon has not been visible once since it rose at 06:15 and set around an hour ago.

So here we have my brand new and freshly delivered Mason Cash mixing bowl, a great big one for bread-making. I could stretch a point and claim it to be 28cm in diameter (which it kind of is, internally) but it’s actually 29cm.

I have not had my hands on one of these beauties since I was in the Dom Sci room at school.

Anyway, it’s still not a fail – I included my current favourite kitchen utensil – a wonderful purple silicone mixing spoon. As you are no doubt well aware:

[b]Silicon is a chemical element with the symbol Si and atomic number 14 – it’s Atomic Mass is 28. [i]Silicones[/i] are large group of polymeric compounds with an (Si-O-Si) backbone.[/b]

Phew, tortuous but I got there!

Edited to add: when researching 28, I found out that it is a Granville number. Now, I don’t know what a Granville number is but oh, my, was I ever tempted to set up an Open All Hours reference for today. It gets better though – 29 is a [i]Perrin[/i] number! I do hope that we get a break in the weather tomorrow…

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
