  1. I asked you for links! And maybe five
    people said, Hey, sure. (Who doesn’t want a link to them??)
    I also hit up Hacker News. And
    that went better. I don’t really see any of these links as being outside of my
    filter bubble—might need to crawl Neocities next!
    But hey. It’s great! I wanted to play with a directory format for these links. And here is my
    result. I’m starting with a simple three-column format, cribbed from the reviews
    in the back of Zine World.
    Thankyou for letting me link to you!

    It’s Krish A nice, colorful little home page with
    some longish essays on culture, the Internet and the future. I was wondering
    if this sort of encapsulated personal home page existed—and it does! I
    personally REALLY like that Krish has organized the articles on the site into
    a little directory. Often a blog is simply the most recent things and that
    may not be a good starting point for discovering someone. #creativity #personal

    Blogs

    Alexander Ellis Nicely spare and
    minimal. One year old. A good number of useful, detailed tutorials on Arduino,
    JavaScript and other programming projects. Many posts are titled “Investigating X”
    and have the feel of a Jupyter notebook REPL. #curiosity #javascript

    The Daily Flywheel Manga, office work dynamics,
    goals and such. The author apologizes for a default WordPress design and also notes
    that it’s “a personal blog not targeted towards public consumption.” However, I
    found myself engrossed by reading someone’s detailed personal thoughts. I say
    “someone” because the author does not reveal a name. I very much approve!

    this is a rather enormous blog of photography, beer reviews and a myriad of posts
    on tech and culture. The beer and photography sections (and the “beertography”, of
    course) are very impressive in their layout. While browsing the photos, I thought
    that it’s been a long time since I’ve had a window into someone’s life like this.
    On Instagram, I’ve become used to seeing a groomed pictosummary of someone’s life.
    To see hundreds of their pictures is to really feel like you’re looking through
    their eyes. #beer #photography #indieweb

    Rambling Git This blog is a great example of why

    design, Brad’s thoughts on the structure of the web are fantastic. Reading these
    posts really made me realize that there is much to do beyond Google and Reddit.
    In fact, it motivated me to go hrefhunting as an experiment: perhaps small,
    personal directories are part of the antidote. Brad’s posts on webrings, DuckDuckGo
    and web directories are top notch. #indieweb #discovery

    Over the summer I experimented with Scotch-based cocktails. Why? Because I could. Because I like whisky. Because it was hot outside today and I was bored and can’t find a movie to watch on Netflix or Apple TV.
    The basic Whisky Sour is whisky, some sort of souring agent, a sweet syrup, bitters and optionally, an egg white. I found a basic recipe on scotchwhisky.com.
    This is my second attempt at making a Whisky Sour. On my first attempt, I used the last of my 12 Year Macallan and lemon juice concentrate and skipped the egg white. It was good, but for my second try, I used freshly squeezed lemon juice and Macallan’s 12 Year Double Cask. The Double Cask is aged in American and European Sherry seasoned oak casks.
    My son helped me separate the egg white. He’s not old enough to drink but he’s an excellent chef. He has the skill to separate the egg white. I do not.
    I did not have a cocktail shaker, but since I am experimenting with making cocktails, it seemed appropriate to have one. I drove around town hoping to find a cocktail mixer but none of the local liquors stores nor the grocery store sells cocktail mixers. The manager at the ShopRite even commented that, with the exception of alcohol, the store sold everything else needed to make mixed drinks.
    I gave the managers at both liquors stores an odd look after being told they didn’t carry any cocktail shakers. A look that basically said, “what fracking sort of liquor store is this”? I found one a few weeks later — several in fact — when I visited Gary’s Wine & Marketplace in Hillsborough.
    Here’s the recipe I used to make what I think is a delicious Whisky Sour.

    My interpretation of a classic cocktail

    Credit: http://142.93.124.147/

    Ingredients

    50ml McCallan’s 12 Year Double Cask
    25ml fresh lemon juice
    15ml agave syrup
    2 dashes Angostura bitters
    1 egg white (optional)
    1 dash of Tangerine bitters

    Directions
    Add all ingredients to a shaker and shake without ice. The egg white creates thickness and a thin foam that adds to the look of the cocktail. Now add lots of cubed ice and shake hard for about 15 seconds. You can pretend you are in a Spanish band. Using a cocktail strainer and a tea strainer, strain the drink of all ice into a chilled martini glass.

    This recipe is a variation on a recipe I found on Low Carb Maven. I used the ingredients I had on hand.

    Coconut Flour Porridge Breakfast Cereal (Paleo, Grain Free)
    This recipe and estimated nutritional information is for 1 serving.
    Ingredients

    2 tablespoons organic coconut flour

    2 tablespoons Trader Joe’s organic flax seeds

    34 cup water

    pinch of salt

    1 large Farmers Hen House free rangeegg

    2 teaspoons ShopRite butter

    1 tablespoon ShopRite heavy cream

    2 packets Splenda

    Instructions

    Beat the egg in a small bowl.
    Grind the flax seeds in a small kitchen grinder.
    In a small pot, heat the coconut flour, ground flax seeds, salt and water. When the porridge begins to simmer, turn the heat down to medium-low and whisk until the porridge begins to thicken.
    Remove the coconut flour porridge from heat and add the beaten egg, a half at a time, while whisking continuously. Place pot back on the heat and continue to whisk until the porridge thickens.
    Remove pot from the heat and continue to whisk for about 30 seconds before adding the butter, cream and sweetener.

    Based on the information I compiled from FatSecret this Coconut Flour Porridge had about 345 calories, 15.5g of carbohydrate, 11.6g of protein, and 25.98g of fat.
