Oh, I wouldn't have guessed. Sounds a bit puritanical. Some people just never got over the repeal of Prohibition. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Seems like everybody is baking bread these days! If you follow a keto or low-carb approach to eating and you feel like trying a bread recipe, you might take a look at the ones here:

dietdoctor.com/low-carb/keto/r

The collection includes breads, muffins, buns, tortillas, pizza crusts, crackers, croutons, foccacia, and naan.

Glad to see people taking stay at home seriously.

Well, you could go to the pub instead. Probably no more expensive. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Gym at home, then social at the pub.

@skiring
Isn't there a social aspect of going to a shared gym? People will miss that, even if they have all the equipment at home.

@gemlog
I thought you had made a typo, but, no, it is called the Hokey Pokey in N. America. How'd that happen?

Nice joke. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Is there really 738 other Michael Goves?
Frightening!

Yeah, about the price of a second-hand car. I dream of such things, too.

@kensanata
Long lenses are essential for wildlife, particularly small birds. Ideally they also need to be fast, as great distances mean any hand wobbles are exaggerated greatly. Sadly, fast, long lenses are big, heavy and exceedingly expensive.

@kensanata
I have the E-M1 with various lenses.

I don't have the ED 75-300mm, I quite fancy getting one. They aren't even that expensive.

If you'd said "wee bit" I would agree. ๐Ÿ˜‰

That red rock crab is amazing, so colourful. Great photos.

Are you also an Olympus user?

@wim_v12e
Regardless, you have picked up a more negative connotation for nerd. That is something you have likely taken from native speakers.

@Bella

@wim_v12e
Yes, I did notice that, but lack of space meant I couldn't mention it.

There must've been a huge overlap between Old English and Dutch. Over time English must have drifted somewhat due to the influence of French and non-European languages.

@wim_v12e
Ahh, interesting. Is being a geek more desirable than being a nerd? Is nerd more negative than geek?

I've not explored this before. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
