This week on the Sweet and Sour Variety Hour, lots of great music and an article about Nanaimo’s derelict centerpiece buildings from The Discourse.
This amazing publication is vying for a permanent place in the Nanaimo media landscape, and all they need is a show of hands. Click here to enter your email address and you will be counted as a voice in favour of community-driven journalism in Nanaimo.
Another cool opportunity is to secure a place for CHLY as a founding partner for this initiative! The Discourse is offering a place in their publication for CHLY and The Radio Malaspina Society (the non-profit that runs the station). All we need to do is raise some cash. Go to chly.ca/thediscourse if you’d like to contribute.
I found the courage to do some beekeeping without my suit, and was promptly stung multiple times. bee sting poultice of dried comfrey root plastered in place with clay will hopefully keep my face from ballooning up like Quasimodo. First time in my life getting a bee sting! First time I was stung by anything was the time we were hiking the Juan de Fuca trail and I stepped in a wasps nest and got fucking ROCKED, ending up with at least a dozen wasp stings all at once. That happened *two times* to Pat on the same trip!
I always thought cappuccinos were a cafe-only treat. No more! Today is the day I learned how to make them at home.
What you’ll need:
stovetop espresso maker (such as a Bialetti Moka)
french press (such a Bodum)
Make espresso as normal. Heat the milk in a small pot to 140°, then pour the milk into the bodum. Plunge it vigorously 25-30 times, and voila!! Pour espresso into a cup, and pour the foamed milk over the espresso.
