Global Warming

Fear not, dear reader, for I've been tracking the global warming situation with the device below strategically placed on my lanai railing. If I detect dane gah, I'll issue a worldwide alert, and I know, there's no lack of street prophets on the Internet.

You know the temperature knob on a gas oven. I scrubbed the numbers off of it. The knob's clean.  However, setting the oven temperature without calibrations is pure guesswork. If you remember when I tried to dry off my wooden knife block by tossing it into the oven and it warped and ended up separated at the seams. My brand new oven temperature guage might reduce re-occurance of things like dat. Also, I've been seriously contemplating getting into baking. Cookies and pies for snacks. What prompted the endeavor was the high prices of potato chips and even tortilla chips at the grocery store if you haven't noticed yourself. For what you pay for a bag of chips nowadays, you could use the same money to buy lobster.

I'm thinking that you used the new camera to take this shot, and I have to say the bokeh action in the background is quite nice.
