What are your jeans doing today?

U could use the dried up endpieces and so on for cooking beans/beanstew or cook 'em in sauces and stew, gives a lot of taste. Also rendering it out after cutting in pieces, toasting sourdough bread in the fat and crumbling some spring onions, salt, pepper and the crumbly meat residue on top (it's called “grieben“ in germany, basically the meat left after all the fat is rendered out.

That seems lovely, thanks for the idea. I'm used to using the rinds of parmesan to cook, e.g., garbanzo beans; I think by the same token it would be nice to throw in the skin & ends of the guanciale—after all, the cheese and the meat certainly work well together on their own.

I really like the asparagus idea, too, but the season's just ending here. Maybe next year!

When I make minestrone I usually throw in the last piece of parmesan (ie the rind) and any offcuts of pork/bacon - so the guanciale would be perfect

I'm still deciding how I'll use it

Look for Bobby Flay's Brussels sprout, potato, shallot, and pancetta dish. It's on the Food Network site. As I'm in Europe the site defaults to the UK version, which doesn't have the recipe, but if you enter those search terms into Google you'll find it on the US site. Just replace the pancetta with giancale. It's one of my favorite dishes...

Talking brussel sprouts, throw em in a hot cast iron pan with the guanciale, fry them for a little bit, salt pepper on top and put 'em on the oven for au little while. Great dish!

I got tired of waiting for my finger to heal so I taped it up with painters tape, a plastic bag and cracked on with the beach house. Walls and ceiling are getting close to finished now.

Looks great Neal but I couldn’t understand a word of that tech-jargon, I thought I was reading a transcript of Robot Wars! You’ll have to tone it down a bit for a denim audience :laugh2:

Here you go Martin.. ive drawn you a diagram :D

fullsizeoutput_274a

..the radius of the wheel comes from the center of the hub but if you follow the angle at the center of the headtube where i dropped the spacer the imagined intersection point would be on a different center so the mudguard wouldn't be possitioned over the wheel.. Doh!

Those guards are beauts, and the tan sidewalls on the new tyres are really icing on the cake. I've thought about sourcing out a pair like that for my old Univega, but in the end I think it'd mean paying an extra $10 / tube for reduced traction & resilience, all in the name of aesthetics, which is a hard sell. I think Velo Orange is the company I'd be most likely to go with—any experience with them, by any chance? edit: Actually, looking back at their site now, I'm not even sure if they make the sizes I'd need…so much for that

Why not just grind your spacer down at an angle & put in a little wedge between the washer and the bolt head?

@Double 0 Soul that’s my favourite ‘story’ post of all you’ve done - it’s great to see a bit of ingenuity (and no little skill) at work

Ive got a little VO stem cap, it's a lovely little thing... i think Velo-Orange would be a great choice you have a bit more scope if you go for aluminum, i wanted black so my choice was narrowed down to the VO Zeppelin's or the Honjo Turtle, i went for the Honjo because they were deeper so pulling out the rim out would have a greater effect on the outside radius.

I like your thinking @julian-wolf, i had the same idea.. the spacer was long enough to cut 5mm off the end and make it into a wedge shaped washer
 
P1020823
...sadly i had already parted it off down to length but i tried putting an angle on the end to compensate (nowt to lose) put the mudguard back on, nipped it up put the wheel on..still not quite right...this went on for quite some time, trial and error, the angle, being on the end of an 11mm surface.. even micro adjustments of 0.1° were having significant effects on the mudguard position...eventually i got it close enough so before i spent time making an angled washer i trialed it with a rubber washer which i trimmed down with a craft knife but when i nipped it up tight it kept pulling the mudguard to one side (imagine looking down at the wheel from your bars) it was anticlockwise to the wheel so with nothing to lock the spacer in position i ended up tapping a thread into it and securing with a bolt through the brake mounts, which when nipped up tight started to angle the mudguard again...at which point i just fucked it off, i want mudguards which i can easily bolt on/off/adjust without all this fanying around. Oh well!

Part 2 of my North Yorkshire day out escaping the house for a bit of fresh country air

A gem of a little waterfall called Scaleber Force hidden away in the woods - could have sat there all day listening to the relaxing sounds of water on rock

Completely staged triple denim pic staring into the falls

Then on to Skipton because it had the nearest chippy on the map.. though very nice setting for dinner by the canal

Back in the museum today to reacquaint myself with the photographs I have been writing about for the past six months... I'll be organizing a show around them set to open in January, although it seems that the exhibition will have to live online (so maybe you all can experience it). These platinum and carbon prints were made by a resident of Jersey City at the turn of the twentieth century. Most of them are toned with a pigment and mounted on decorative boards. In these works, atmosphere and painterliness are the predominate aesthetic concerns, and my phone photographs do not do them justice. Truly one of a kind objects in the pictorialist tradition.

Visited Piece Hall today... quite an impressive building, built in 1779 as a fully enclosed trading venue for 'pieces' of cloth (phone pic doesn't do it any justice).  Has been restored for shopping, food events, concerts and whatnot (when allowed)

while the city itself is crowded with tourists, out-of-the-city museum-parks (finally open) are not so here we are. gbgs and kid get some fresh air

Not on a par with Arthur’s cabin build and 00’s souped up shed, but the father-in-law and I stretched our flat pack skills to the limit putting up this bad boy. 

Timed to perfection just as outdoor play areas opened in England this week :blink:

It's a shame the colours are so damn lovely, because Farrow & Ball makes me fucking cringe!

It's like the Waitrose of the paint world.. the food is lovely but the folks who shop there are just awful..:D

Haha. I used F&B on my window frames - it barely lasted 3 years before peeling and cracking. I hope you are going full gloss bro.
