I think I’ll fire up the old excuse generator and blame the cold weather for making me inactive and hungry, which is probably where the extra weight is coming from. Yeah, it’s the weather’s fault. Stupid weather.
I’ve been having a further play with Lightroom 4 Beta, and as I haven’t been out much, I’m revisiting some recent pictures. Playing with the new sliders has let me create a slightly different version of this one, which I first posted last December:
Percy Chantry – Previous version
With a little bit of work, I produced this one, which has a more natural look. Or something. Well, I like it, anyway:
Frozen, even. One of the UK’s major supermarket chains is changing some labelling that I’ve often wondered about.
Lots of food can be frozen and kept for a very long time indeed without any problem at all. Now if you’ve got plenty of room in the freezer, or you’re one of those people who likes to plan ahead, you can get your shopping, freeze things that you don’t want to use in the short term, and all is well.
But what about that lasagne you bought and were planning to eat on Tuesday, just before its “use by” date, but then something came up and you couldn’t. Well, if you take instructions literally, you might find yourself wasting a perfectly good lasagne, because the label generally says something about how it can be frozen quite nicely, but adds:
Freeze on day of purchase
Now Sainsbury’s are dropping this curious advice (as the BBC News article mentions, it seems unlikely that your lasagne would know what day you bought it…). A minor thing, but it should reduce some waste, which seems like a Good Thing to me. Other shops and manufacturers please copy, as press reports nearly used to say.
