  • Philips Voicetracer 600 Dictaphone

    Last post: Moose Mahon on 14.03.11 at 01:50 | Started by Greg on 27.06.10

    I'm just glad that things have moved on from recording on tapes to digital....when I first started work I had to get used to fluffing around with tapes all the time...so anything digital is a bonus ;)

    But seriously, I think I can handle not having a "Mac-like" simple user interface, as long as once I have figured out how to use it there aren't too many unnecessary button clicks required. The main thing for me is bundling the voice recognition with the dictaphone itelf, which seem sliek it will save a whole extra step in the tranliteration phase.

    I'm very familar with Dragon, it has evolved into quite a decent product (once trained properly, as the article says)...so I might look into upgrading my dictaphone to an "all-in-one" device like this if it will save me time and hassle. I'm about to start a writing project (personal, not work;))...and I will need to constantly review my work as it gets transcribed, so yeah...an upgrade may well be in order ;) More about Philips Voicetracer 600 Dictaphone

  • Italian Ribollita (Vegetable and Bread Soup)

    I will definitely try this soup...I have been preparing and eating a lot of soup lately to try to avoid saturated fat and get more fibre into me...especially important since I need to lower my cholesterol ;)

    I made some delicious leek and potato soup last week using a can of low fat evaporated milk to make it creamy...which is a really good low fat tip for anyone else out there who wants to make creamy soups but without the fat of real cream ;) It works really well...

    Plus I have started using good old fashioned dry "soup mix" in my soups, which is basically a mix of lentils, barley and split peas...and it makes the soup really filling and full of good fibre...plus it's really cheap to buy ;) More about Italian Ribollita (Vegetable and Bread Soup)

  • How to Serve Wine

    Last post: Moose Mahon on 14.03.11 at 01:50 | Started by Marley on 03.06.10

    I reckon that how you serve wine says a lot about who you are as a person and your approach to life:

    Do you:

    A. Grab the nearest bottle, pop the cork and swill it down.
    B. Read the label before selecting a bottle, ease the cork out, pour into a tall-stem glass and sip.
    C. Have your own wine cellar, know the history of grape-growing in France, and swirl, sniff and/or spit the wine before drinking.

    Think about it. Whether you are A, B or C...I bet you have a similar approach to life (you can fill in the blanks of the metaphor yourself...) ;)

    Just a thought. More about How to Serve Wine

  • Types of Wine: Pick Your Grape

    Last post: Moose Mahon on 14.03.11 at 01:50 | Started by Moose Mahon on 06.05.10

    I have quite simple tastes really when it comes to wine, and I'm not fussy at all.

    Basically, to put it in a nutshell, I like any wine that is not too acidic but has an austere aroma, has a berrylike bouqet with good balance, is citrusy, crisp and complex without being too cloudy, well decanted with a delicate depth and not too dry, earthy but elegant, with firm floral flavours and a fresh fruity and full-bodied finish, grapey but not too grassy, not too hearty or hard, preferably jammy, leafy and lively with a lingering length, musty with a nutty nose, oaky and plump but without being ponderous, refined and rich and what I would describe as robust without being too rustic, of course it must have a sharp structure without being tart or underipe, and it's a given that it must not be volatile yet still weighty and well-balanced. Oh, and not too yeasty.

    If, by some random chance I can't find a wine that meets that fairly simple criteria, I'm pretty happy just to grab a beer.

  • Ageing (Dis)gracefully?

    Last post: Moose Mahon on 14.03.11 at 01:50 | Started by Jono on 15.12.09

    I'm glad the article finally says "enjoy the ride" at the end, because to me that is what fashion and dress sense is all about....

    I've gotta say that I didn't understand a lot of the fancy words and analysis in the above article...and no offence intended to the author but I wouldn't mind betting he is a youngster in his 20s. I am in my mid-thirties and as I've aged a bit I have come to realise that what I wear isn't really about being cool or stylish or trying to impress...it's just about wearing what is right for me and my personality...(and what is comfortable ;))....in return, I don't pay anywhere near as much attention to what OTHERS are wearing as I used to when I was younger.

    So to me, I don't care if a 40 year old wants to wear a gold chain and track pants with his boxers showing...to others he might be trying to recapture his youth, but to him he may just be being himself and feeling good about it. After all, that's what life is all about..."enjoying the ride"... More about Ageing (Dis)gracefully?
