Got a call this afternoon from the Director Of Assisted Living at the place where my dad is, telling me that one of the nurses there had tested positive for youknowwhat. They think it's an isolated case, but of course they'll be testing everybody as soon as they can.

I thanked her for letting me know, and told her I hoped the nurse would recover soon and not have too hard a time with it. She thanked me and said I was the first person she'd talked to about this who'd said anything like that.

Hope all goes well there, Charlie!

I too love to season my pans during the hottest time of the year.

Second bout of gout in three weeks. I wouldnt mind so much if I'd been absolutely hammering it. Been fairly sensible in my diet and have barely drank any booze.

I just had my first melon of the season, an Ambrosia which is a type of cantaloupe. Sweet, aromatic and utterly delicious. Next week they'll be even better since it's been so hot.

I started a little food experiment today with the plums from the backyard. I have way too many to possibly eat and they are small this year so I've decided to cook them down in a slowcooker without adding sugar or anything else. That way I can try some different flavoring approaches, both savory and sweet to see what works. I'll freeze the pulp in small batches to preserve them and bring some out when the mood strikes and play around with it. I don't really want to make jam with it so that's why I'm giving this a go. Last year I put some in my dehydrater but it made a sticky mess in the process so I thought I'd try this. If anyone has any ideas I'm all ears.

Plenty of petrol on sale with no queues today but not a jar of either Marmite or Vegemite to be had for the last 2 weeks.
