mix all ingredients thoroughly with a ladle.
distribute the mixture in a flat form (diameter=24cm)
ca. 20 - 30 minutes, 200 Degrees Celsius
I normally use a cake form which is higher than the recommended form, thus baking time increases to approximately 45 minutes.
I never have cream handy, so instead of cream I just add an extra tablespoon of Milk.
7 years ago was the last time I celebrated one of my Birthdays with friends. At that time a good friend of mine came up with the idea of a Cinemathon, spending the whole day in the cinema watching different movies. We had a great time and watched the following movies:
An Inconvenient Truth (very interesting)
Pan's Labyrinth (fantastic!)
Smoking Aces (a huge let down, especially right after Pan's labyrinth)
Ghost Rider (interesting but not great)
Now that all my friends turned 30 and had a big party, I thought it time to do something as well. And so the idea of the second edition of the Birthday Cinemathon was born.
This time we watched the following movies:
Non-Stop A very good Action-Thriller that kept us on our seats wondering how it was going to end. Definite recommendation!
The Grand Budapest Hotel A fantastically funny movie about loyalty and friendship with a fantastic cast (Willem Dafoe is simply brilliant!) and wonderful pictures. A must see!
The Wolf of Wall Street Even though it ran for 3 hours, this was a very entertaining movie about the rise and fall of Jordan Belfort, a stock broker on Wall Street. Recommendation: We liked it, but it's not for everyone, since it shows some very questionable behavior.
Stormberg - Der Film Stromberg is a German TV Series based on the UK hit The Office. After five seasons a crowd funding project enabled the making of the first Stromberg movie. We had no idea what to expect from this movie, since we never saw the series before, but I chose it based on a recommendation from a co-worker and because it fit the schedule. We were pleasantly surprised. It was very funny and entertaining. Recommendation: If you are an office worker, go and see it.
After almost 10 hours in the cinemas the second event ended with a beer in a nearby pub. Compared to the first time, we were very happy with the film selection. All of them were worth seeing.
Thanks to everyone who joined me for this special day! I'm sure it won't be the last time :)
After an eleven month break, I was looking forward to get back underwater. My trip brought me back to Marsa Alam in Egypt. From there I took a one-week liveaboard to Brothers and Daedalus National Park. The highlights of this trip were the drop-offs / wall dives and the Sharks that can regularly be encountered in that area.
Already on our first dive at Small Brother Island we spotted Treasure Sharks, a Shark I never encountered before!
And it kept getting better. We spotted Treasure Sharks, Hammerhead Sharks, Grey Reef Sharks and White-tip Reef Sharks. Almost on every dive one of these Sharks made an appearance :).
The boat we stayed on was the Heaven Saphire, a 5-star liveaboard, and even though it might have been a bit more expensive than comparable trips, it was well worth it. Everyone on board was very dedicated to our well-being and the food was excellent!
We spent the last day of our vacation in Port Ghalib near Marsa Alam and I used the spare time to look for and find the only Geocache in the area! It was cool to find my first Cache in Africa :).
More pictures of this trip can be found in my web album.
This summer I've been a very busy Geocacher ;), doubling my finds since June 22nd. Notable is the addition of two new countries (UK and France) and my current series of 50 days of continuous Caching (since August 10th).
Here are updated statistics about my finds:
Statistics generated on 29.09.2013
pratchettfan has a total of 300 finds at 300 different geocaches since 22.06.2012 ( 980 mdCachingPoints )
*The 'Average' is an projected average taking into account the exact timespan between first caching day and gpx file date. Example: If you started caching a week ago with 1 find the projected average will be 52 finds/year (1 per week).
pratchettfan should reach the milestone '400' on 03.03.2014. This is equal to 155 days or 50 caching days* The milestone '500' should be reached on 04.08.2014. This is equal to 309 days or 99 caching days* *Predicted values based on actual caching history
