We usually sweeten it with sugar.

 

I have to playfully say..  Wait, there's a way of doing it without sugar?  But then it's nowhere near as good!

 

....No wonder the stuff in a can is so terrible compared to what Second Cup used to offer.  I say "used to" because the local one I liked closed years ago, but Barking Buffalo / Salgado Fenwick are a more than lovely alternative, and closer.  And better coffee too.  Plus they have COOKIES!

Most Germans use whipped cream without sugar.

o_O  They so don't know what they're missing...  Here in Canada we'll put a decent amount of sugar into whipped cream, at least if you're making it with the pressurized canisters anyways ^_^

Best way is to use fresh cream.

 

I have an urge to bake something out of a sudden, odd.

Just finished a delicious lunch at our favourite Japanese place. Unfortunately, their deserts are somewhat lacking, so we ended up at the pancake place over the road ^_^ With proper, sweetened cream...

I usually use fresh cream, a little sugar, and an electric hand mixer.

 

No reason for me to do all the work. :B):

yesterday was a good news/bad news sort of day. 

One of of those 22 year old obsolete tellers I always complain about was broken into, and the thief took off with all the cash handling equipment inside, and damaged something in the electronics to the point of popping the main power fuse when they did so.    That's good news for me, because that's one more of those tellers down, but bad news because what would have been around a $1500 repair even just ten years ago is going to be a nearly $20k complete teller replacement. A lot of owners fight that, and want to try and fix it anyway, which stresses me out and causes me to rant here about it. 

But the real good news for me this was one of those guys who has been heeding my advice over the last few years, and had been putting away money to replace it. He told me several times that "I'm not spending anything more than double digits to fix it, but I'm going to run it until it drops."  Between what he saved up and the insurance claim he'll likely get, he can afford the replacement.  He's looking forward to the new teller, so that's good news for him.

Possible bad news (for both of us) is that we'll have to deal with his insurance company, explaining why we probably can't fix his 22 year old teller. Some claims adjusters make it easy - we explain the situation, and we're fine.  Other claims adjusters make it difficult though.

Actually... inhabe had this conversation it for along the lines of: do you want the work or the report?  

 

Unfortunately my boss is green and has zero political clout for previous political maneuvering from people who are now retired (sins of the father and all that)  and our big boss hasn't gotten it through his thick skull that, unlike his division, most of the engineering group in the Americas do work.  Seriously both divisions have about the same gross profit at this point but our engineering staff is smaller than their engineering management staff!  So we soldier on.  I have most of the info he needs and he finally got around to telling me what info he wants because I refused to play bring-me-a-rock so I can put it together for him.  My division will probably get sold off in a year or so and we will be under new management so nothings permanent.  I just occasionally have to remind him that to get output someone does have to ask for input ::D:. It's worth noting that I I really do like my boss and my job.  If there weren't some annoyances this would be fun and they wouldn't pay me...

 

If you have a good set of organs, keto is one of the more effective diets I've seen.  It's been very effective for my better half.  Unfortunately for us, my medical issues make a keto diet a nono for me which can make dinnertime a little awkward.  We can usually make it work though.  Best of luck with the plan.  I do have an awesome dry keto friendly rib rub and slow cooker barbeque pulled pork recipe if you want them.  Utterly delicious!

 

I've never been one to turn down a good barbeque recipe. I own neither a grill nor smoker nor slow cooker but I do know how to wield a dutch oven and a roll of aluminum foil well enough to compensate.

I love these.

I supported his second and third kickstarters and I have an alternate pic of my avatar that he drew as a ?Thank YOu.

The artist lives about 50 miles from where we are currently living.

Jack in the Box doesn't make tacos.

 

Oh, they have things that are titled "Tacos" on their menu. But I made the mistake of eating them once. I've had tacos; these are not that.

      Congratulations, by opening this forum post, you have received a quest!
      This quest is a challenge created by the combined forces of @Sirithiliel the Queen Tiamacrab, a Wizard Most Wild @Pezler the Polychromatic, and myself – @Cyradis the Questgiver.
      The challenge is this! Paint a small dragon, letting the dice control the colors!
      The Rules:
      Post in the WIP Forums “_Your Pseudonym_ is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!” or “_Your Pseudonym_ has accepted the d20 rainbow dragon quest!” something to that extent.

      Select a figure from one of the following: Stormwing (from Bones III), Kryphrixis (from Bones III), Deathsleet (77110), or Ebonwrath (77102).

      You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors. Take a photo with the figure and a clock as proof of order of operations.  
      Roll for colors! Use a d20 and a photo, or an online dice roller with a screenshot as proof of rolling. Or have a fellow forum dweller vouch for your rolls. Use the Color Chart below to determine what the color is that you rolled. There are three rolls. Below is an online dice roller. Most keyboards have a PRT SCRN button that can take a screenshot for you. Then you can paste the photo into Paint to save. I'm sure there are better methods, but that works for me. 

      https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm

      The first roll determines what your primary base color is. That must be the dominant color on the figure.

      The second roll determines your secondary color. It should be the second color that catches the eye, and second most prevalent color on the figure.

      The third roll determines your miscellaneous color. This should be most of the accent colors that you use, and third most prevalent color on the figure.

      You might need to order paint or go to the FLGS after rolling if you don’t have a given bottle – we’ll be patient and wait for you. If you can’t get a bottle of one of these colors, here is a spreadsheet with equivalent colors from different brands. If you really can't get them, use the closest thing you got to your rolls (let us know what they are please).

      You are allowed to use whatever colors to shade and highlight that you want, as long as the rolled colors are obvious visually.* Example: you can shade a red dragon with purple, brown, or black, but it must always appear as a red dragon. A white dragon shaded with grey must appear as a white dragon, not a grey dragon.   
      You are allowed to use colors outside the ones that you rolled, but they must not take up more visual surface area than any of the others.** Example: your pink, green, and gray dragon is allowed to have bone-beige teeth.  
      The proportions of color on the figure can be however you want, as long as the 1st roll is dominant, 2nd is less, 3rd is less, and anything else smaller. Example: 70% pink, 15% green, 10% gray, and 5% anything else. Or it could be 50% pink, 25% green, 15% grey, and 10% anything else. The tidbit colors are fine wherever, as long as they are minor. 
        Paint your dragon according to the rolls plus your tidbits. Even if it is outrageous. The goal is to make the dragon look as awesome as possible without the benefit of planning color themes. You can add spots, stripes, eye-spots like moths have, or nothing. This is the base challenge. 
        Star 1* You may decide after your initial three rolls to limit your shading colors to your rolled colors mixed with pure black and white. You may still use tidbit colors. Declare this if you go for a Star 1 challenge!
        Star 2** You may decide after your initial three rolls to not use colors outside of your rolled ones and shading colors (so no tidbits like beige teeth, only 3 visual colors shaded however you want). Declare this if you go for a Star 2 challenge!
        Star 3*** You may decide to do both the Star 1 and Star 2 challenges, using absolutely nothing but your three rolled colors, plus black and white for shading. If you do this, you are allowed to use the white for areas like teeth and eyes that could be really weird otherwise (or not - up to you). Effectively, you have 5 colors to work with only, and three of them must be the majority (in decreasing order of prevalence). You gotta be nuts!
        There is no time limit on this. However, if the WIP photos stop showing up at a normal rate and there’s never a Show Off thread, the forum dwellers may gently poke fun at you for adding this to your Shelf of Shame.
        Post to the Show Off forums with a “_Your Pseudonym_ has completed the random rainbow dragon challenge!” sort of title upon completion. Brag about your awesome (or hilarious) dragon. Win all the internet-points. Receive experience and praise. Thus shall end the quest.
        Once the first Random Rainbow Dragon has been completed, we will start up a group Show Off thread to compile all of the dragons in a great flock of rainbowy goodness.

      After seeing my first thread on it (I think it was @Glitterwolf's thread for such an honour) my first thought was pretty much "that looks like a LOT of fun", followed closely by "but I've never painted anything other than a few Space Marines!".  Yeah, well, challenge accepted, because I kind of fell in love with how Ebonwrath looks.
       
      Yup, I'm going into this technically with very little skill in painting, but while I'm waiting for Ebonwrath (and some gnolls and paint, gnolls are the honour guard for the paint, I swear) I'll have both of the learn to paint kits to work through, and assuming everything pans out (aka assuming I filled out my Canada Post FlexDelivery stuff correctly) I'll be picking those up after work today, and then about a week and a half (ish) later Ebonwrath will be in.  Seems like a semi-insane thing to do, dive right into painting a dragon when you originally were getting paints to steadily work on your WH40k Catachans army (and Skaven, sooooo many Skaven o_O ), but I figure why not have fun with life.  Besides, what better to put all the new skills the LTPK's are designed to help you get a baseline grasp on than a gigantic dragon of cuddles DOOOOOOOM that, in my eyes at least, can be bribed with cookies.
       
      Some say I'm insane, I say to be a good delivery driver you need just enough insanity...  Not enough to pass the entrance exams, but enough to be perfectly fine wearing shorts in -5C weather.  :P
       
      Anyways, onto the rolls!
       
       

      I wound up rolling 14, 19, and 3....  So Terran Khaki as the main, Pure Black as the secondary colour, and Lava Orange as a highlight.  Well now, that's an interesting mix in my eyes.  I'm not quite certain as to how this mix will pan out, but on the flipside I chose to dive into this headfirst, so I'm also going to give it a whirl as a full on three star challenge.  I'm actually kind of liking the sound of these colours, as I've had a number of different design possibilities come to mind already!
       

      Obviously, given the current promo and Rictus seeming like a nice and dedicated, honourable skeleton, I had to get a few other items into the cart for free shipping (plus a free skeleton!), and for someone to keep the gnolls in check while Ebonwrath is napping away in it's blister pack.  Can't let the gnolls steal the cookies after all.  Pure Black is included in one of the Learn To Paint Kits, so I didn't add it into the order from Reaper.
       
      Here's hoping I won't have to make too too much room in my gaming area to work on Ebonwrath ^_^;;;;; (since it's still another two months before I can get a dedicated miniatures area set up, but man am I looking forward to such!)
       
       
      EDIT (Jan 7th @ 15:44 MST): Totally forgot to add this in...  For additional information regarding the rainbow dragon challenge, here's the main thread for it!

      Link to original challenge: 
      I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379
      So I'm painting that. 
       
      Die roll, 13, 18, 2.  Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red.   Good colors.  I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate.

      So I decided to do this random dragon challenge thing.
       
      My rolls.

      Main 20 9039 Pure White
      Secondary 6 9227 Brilliant green
      Miscellaneous 10 9023 Imperial Purple
       
      And my intent is to do the 3 star challenge, I was planning this before rolling.  Interesting colors, I have the pure white but not the other two.
       
      The arrival of Deathsleet with his Halloweeny reinforcements, and the missing two paints.

       
      And here he is ready for the paint.

       
      I started with giving him a primer of brilliant green cut with 2-3 times as much pure white.

      Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis.
       

       
      must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors...
       

       
      15, ah what could that mean?  I'll look later.  Let's roll another.
       

       
      seven!  Good.  Nicely spaced numbers.  Will look it up in a minute.  For the third roll...  Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different...  Finally!
       

       
      oof!  One!  Critical miss.  Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table.  Let's see what this means:
       
      15: mint green
      7: olive green
      1: fire red 
       
      huh.  Whadaya know.  Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)
