It's just a bog-standard caek with strawberries and cream, but don't tell anybody.

250g unsalted butter
250g caster sugar
250g self-raising flour
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
3 tbsps milk

1 smallish pot (150ml?) whipping cream
Strawberries
Icing sugar

Beat all the ingredients together, divide between 2 greased sandwich tins, bake for 20-25 mins at 180 degrees. Cut 12 strawberries in half, slice the rest thinly, reserving a few whole ones for decoration. Whip cream, toss in the sliced strawberries, apply to caek, put other caek on top, dust with sifted icing sugar, decorate with remaining strawberries. Stick the halved strawberries around the caek. Eat!

Oh thanks, Magenta. That sounds really good. I love strawberries. Looks easy enough to prepare. Baking caek (cake) can be a lot like drumming, a simple recipe can be the tastiest.

So happy to see Andy Murray win Wimbledon. What a match, what a performance, what a final game. Congrats to Andy and to his home country for winning the trophy they waited 77 years for.

It was a hell of a match, wasn't it? I think he should be made an honorary Englishman ;)

The song that is stuck in my head the last few days is The Who's ""Eminence Front"" only in my heads version, it has a Steve Jordan style funk thing on the drums.

+1...I don't drink anything that isn't micro-brewed unless it's Sam Adams or little known Yuengling lagers, black and tans or porters.The oldest brewery in the USA,and still cranking out pretty good stuff.The're in Pottersville PA., so a few bars in NYC have it on tap,and you can get 1/4 kegs for parties.

I mostly stick with European/German beers like Spaten,Pschorr Brau,Pilsner Urquell,Krombacher,and Holstein Pilsner.There's a beer distributor only 1/2 mile from my house that stocks over 150 different brands of beer.

There's also two German restaurants on the island that have import beer on tap(neither one has any big American beers on tap) .I go there on occasion to get my wurst and kraut or Jeager schnitzel and potato balls fix.

Prost!

With this beer conversation in mind, I'm actually quite impressed with the selection at my local Wetherspoons. For the devious foreigns in this thread, Wetherspoons is a big pub chain in the UK - there's usually at least one in every medium-sized town and frequently several in cities. They tend to have a decent selection of ale. Abbot is always on tap at mine and that is always appreciated. Even better it's one cigarette (my new measure of distance) from my front door...

With that said, the best local pub is one I used to go into when I was a very small child with my Mum and Dad. Now I can appreciate why they went there...

Specifically where you are, I don't know.

But from my prior retail experience, the answer would be: "quite low."

A most noble if somewhat floored distance measurement. Does that make the journey shorter when you're stressed?

That's nuts. Head on over to Amazon. You will find sticks for around 7.00 a pair or thereabouts. Amazon is my first stop when I'm looking for stuff to buy online anymore.

Is the Cream song Badge...an acronym for the chords of the song? Like Abacab?

Wikileak:

"Badge" was originally an untitled track. During the production transfer for the album Goodbye, the original music sheet was used to produce the liner notes and track listing.

The only discernible word on the page was "bridge" (indicating the song's bridge section). Due to Harrison's handwriting, however, Clapton misread it as "badge" — and the song was titled soon thereafter.

Harrison remembered the story differently: "I helped Eric write 'Badge' you know. Each of them had to come up with a song for that Goodbye Cream album and Eric didn't have his written. We were working across from each other and I was writing the lyrics down and we came to the middle part so I wrote 'Bridge.' Eric read it upside down and cracked up laughing-- 'What's BADGE?' he said.

After that, Ringo walked in drunk and gave us that line about the swans living in the park."

A common legend or misconception is that the name came about because its chord progression is B-A-D-G-E (it is not),[5] or simply because an anagram of a guitar's standard tuning (E-A-D-G-B-E) can be arranged to spell "Badge".
Clapton can be heard on many live solo recordings performing the song and singing the refrain "where is my badge?" or "love is my badge", incorporating the title into the song.

Abe's explanation seems good to me.

There's a local band called "Touching cloth" (gotta love that), & they do a song called "Sit on my lace". Could that possibly have a hidden meaning?

Actually, reminds me of a Liverpool band back in the 80's called "Half man, Half Biscuit" (gotta love that too). They did loads of crazy twisted lyric stuff :)

Last weekend I went to my local Sam Ash and walked out with a bag of 10 pairs of blank Vic Firth sticks that only cost $1 per pair. They aren't 5A's though; they are blank Aaron Spears signature sticks. I've been meaning to try them out anyway. I have to say, I like them..

I agree and that's why I shop online or at Guitar Center. I hate it for he parent's who do pay those absurd prices.

I don't get why people post ads selling DW kits with "rare color" or "hard to find color" as if it makes the kit more valuable.

The vast majority of DW collectors kits ever made were one off colors. Until the mid-late 90's, DW didn't even offer any "standard" colors to choose from.

Because the ignorant and uninformed will spend extra money for something they think is rare, regardless of whether it really is or not.

I picked up a used Premier ABK shell pack today.

10, 12, and 14 toms with a 20" bass drum.

Only $200, with cases!!

When I worked at GC way back when, I sold a ton of ABK/XPK sets. I remember when Premier came out with this particular shell pack, even though I had just purchased the Signia, I seriously considered picking up a set just to have a smaller compact kit.

And for a while now I've been wanting a cheap small kit I can throw in the back of the car and not worry about cases. And now I have it! (funny this set actually came with cases! haha).

I'll have to post pictures later this week.

Funny though, the previous owner had a different head combination on each tom.

Good girl! It's good to get back to some form of sustainable rhythm. I rise around 5:30 - 6:00 every morning, even when I don't want to. I did sleep in 'til 8:30 after the Harley gig last saturday though ;)
