  1. Not necessarily a good idea in a pandemic. Allows more dangerous mutations to develop and thrive in unprotected populations.
  2. What are you cooking today?

      A local Turkish shop here stocks it and the Asian markets sometimes have some bunches - often with the roots although i've never tried to grow it on.   I tend to buy a few bunches when I see it, blanche and  then mince them and freeze it in a freezer bag as a  flat sheet so I can break off chunks as I need them for curries, etc. Not so good for garnishing though.  Adding some oil and freezing in ice cube trays also works. I've only once seen it growing in the fields here. Whenever I've tried to grow it, I only get tiny wispy leaves.   Strangely enough, nearly every time I buy it in the store, the guy makes sure I ow it's coriander and not parsley. I must admit to having to rub a leaf between my fingers and sniffing it sometimes as it's not always easy to tell.

      Made pizza in a normal oven with grill and pizza stone method. Used cold fermented dough that I fermented in the fridge for 4 days! Tastes great. Here's one I made earlier. Not very good at the shaping yet  - it was supposed to be circular.

    @SannerlThe Bizzaro comic reminded me of an old sketch by the Two Ronnies... How to Speak Swedish...

      As we're not religious, one year we made them with smiley faces instead of crosses:                                                         (Was a bit easier to do the curved mouth as we use a piped flour/water/sugar mix rather than strips of dough)

  8. Hmmm. looking at the poll at the top of the page, 19 people voted for the option "I  will do it, but in a year or so, first persons are ''lab rats'' testers. I don't trust them yet. " A year or so? You should be so lucky!

      Was the correct answer "long ones"  ?    
  12. Opinions on MMR vaccinations for children

      That's what they want you to think...
  13.   It surprises me that you would be worried by this.   Vaccines contain enough information to trigger the body to produce antibodies against the virus they are tailored for. In lots of well known vaccines, this is actually the virus (but deactivated/dead or modified so that it can't replicate) or just those parts of the virus that have been shown to trigger the needed antibodies that also work on the virus itself. This is how the polio, mumps, measles, etc. vaccines all work.   This new type of vaccine, which make up most, but I think not all, of the current Covid-19 vaccines actually works a bit like a benign virus. It has a section of RNA which causes your body to generate small protein blocks that initiate your antibody response. These same protein blocks are found on the Covid-19 virus, so if you do get infected, your immune system is already primed to respond. Viruses work by injecting RNA strands too, but these cause your body to replicate the complete virus.    At least this is my non-medical understanding.

      Oh, the inhumanity!
  15. Pancake Day recipes - Shrove Tuesday 16 February 2021

    Tried making Korean mung bean pancakes a few weeks back. Easier to make than to pronounce (nokdujeon ) and didn't taste too bad at all!    Nokdujeon (Mung Bean Pancakes) - Korean Bapsang
