A great how-to book has recently been made free-to-use online, Automate the Boring Stuff with Python. It assumes some familiarity with basics but allows new coders to learn basic building-blocks of code that allows them to create useful functions.
Went through a painful experience to update the stack. It went offline and took 4 weeks to troubleshoot. At the end, had a stale http address listed in the nu8m.com registry. Some items left to evaluate are:
- ways to keep the https address from changing with a reboot/restart of the web service
- automated backups to use if the website needs recovered
These are a family favorite since 1994.
|1 1/2 cups
|Substitute cake/break flour for more cake-like texture
|Substitute honey for a sweeter pancake, or maple syrup for fall flavor.
|Substitute baking chocolate with butter to have lighter pancake
|Substitute skim milk or soy milk may require adjustment of liquid/flour ration for proper mixture flow on griddle
|Substitute with margarine or vegetable oil will result in a smoother-texture pancake. Add vanilla for added flavor
|Milk Chocolate Morsels
Fall mix with Dark-Chocolate and Butterscotch chips, for Christmas, use Christmas chips or M&M’s
Shift together the first five ingredients in a large bowl. Combine eggs and milk; add to flour mixture, sitting just until dry ingredients are moistened. Add melted butter and chocolate morsels, stirring just until combined.
For each pancake, pour about 2 tablespoons batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle. Turn pancakes when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Yields: 18 (4-inc h) pancakes.
The Delaware Heritage Cookbook
The Deaware Heritage Commission
The above instructions are as written in the source book. The personal substitutions are in the right-hand column.
I use a cast-iron griddle on a gas range. I set the temperature so the pancakes cook enough in three minutes per side.
I use either the 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup to dispense the batter onto the griddle.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
This is from an episode, Three Chips for Sister Marsha | Good Eats | Food Network.
For Christmas I would substitute either Christmas Chips or M&M’s in the recipes.
For beer this year, I am trying the Old Fezziwig clone. I added extra Ginger and gave it a little-more kick. Over time the ginger will mellow, so after Christmas it should be a nice Winter beer.
These are images from a family visit to the DIA in 2017. Seem’s like a good time to review and publish visits to public places like Art Museeums.
There were two space-related achievements this past weekend.
Captured a few good images of comet Neowise
Comet – one week later
First Satellite QSO – AO 91, Fox 1B
As the satellite moved north, soon to be out-of-range, I was able to snag one QSO
