Helping El Colombiano in his garden tomorrow (Saturday).
I anticipate sore old man back and nanna knees by the end of the day - picks tomorrow night.
-- Update --
5 tons of soil and about 2 tons of grass latter I'm officially pooped. Everything is sore.

Meat cooked in beer

Alternate title: Don't take a photo of this, I don't want anybody to see how much I'm eating!

We have one of those huge cast iron casserole pots in which you can slow cook bits of beast to make the most wonderful meals. It is so heavy it has cracked the glass topped halogen stove (possibly added to by my using a heat disperser the wrong way around). We've done a variety of dishes now, my favorite being slow cooked barrrr lamb (shoulder) in red wine. A few days ago we tried out lamb slow cooked in beer, Coopers Dark Ale to be exact. We feasted on non trivial yummieness.

A tad busy

Two major system crashes this week.
