@shlee Thanks for the earworm, mate. Although my brain is trying to convert it into "SA roads" with reference to the shit-awful condition so many are in. (Especially round here.)
I have read of what might reasonably be found in goulash, and made my choices. Stock comes from lamb shank, which also provides well-cooked meat, to supplement the browned lamb steak. Seasoning is paprika, onion powder (out of onions,) caraway, garlic, S&P. Bayleaves, a single potato as thickener (this will be a rice dish,) and tomato go in at the start. Cook 45 mins, add red cabbage, mild Fushimi chilli, Basmati rice, cook until done.
@n0tj05h So basically Ubuntu with Xfce instead of Gnome? (Only reason my Linux laptop is vanilla Ubuntu is that's what I run on my servers; I can take or leave Gnome, as it's occasional use only, mostly on Macs.)
@JulzM Yo! Currently in sinus hell, and with a healing rib, but at least we've just had some rain.
@pelagikat At least they're keeping to form.
@futzle @pelagikat @koosli Wow. Not having municipal refuse collection and ten (now nine 😢) dogs, I'd not considered the urban approach. Scoop into 20 litre buckets, two for the back, on for the front lawn - emptied into a bucket-wide 4m long by 2m deep trench until half-full, then get the Bobcat guy every year or so for the next one. It works, and satisfies my needs as an infrastructure nerd.
@Quokka Love it.
Also getting him to get the broken post out of the horse yard, as the barrel protecting it is falling apart, get him thinking about patching the drive that he put down about 16 years ago, and filling in the swimming pool so it can become a shade house, so we can move the vegetables out of the car port.
Soon, my fluffy puppy, you will be at your final rest.
With Garth put to sleep on Sunday, and the next day a public holiday, today is the day that Chas comes. Former landscaper, now full time Bobcat (skid-steer front loader) operator, Chas is our digger and filler of graves (we always kep one dug) post holes and the like. And one of the most reliable people I have ever met. Once contacted, there's always one less worry, as he'll turn up when he says. Waiting for him now.
@koosli Actually reminds me that I really need a bag of ice lolly sticks in my materials supply. Could have done with some when I was designing my finger splint. (Tendon rupture)
