Re: Logon

I was judging the scene in the context of it being set in New Mexico. Specifically, I was referring to the likelihood of people being shot for their sneakers/hubcaps/etc in the US OK I accept that's not what you meant but that wasn't clear, following as it was immediately after a comment about stuf...

On the upside, my new marble coated pans work wonderfully for pancakes (crepes).

On the downside, my most trusty recipe book's pancake recipe results in thick and not so wonderful pancakes. Wonder if I should just thin it with milk, or get a new recipe? My mom will probably have a good one.
