What am I baking?

February 8, 2018

I made this with my friend, Roz’s, recipe.  Where the recipe came from I have no idea, but this is a good one I have made over and over – it’s always a hit.

This time I chose to use dark brown sugar instead of white sugar because I like the subtle hint of molasses – especially from dark brown muscovado sugar.

When I hear chefs on TV shows say to use light brown sugar because dark brown is just too dark – I disagree!

There is a great pictorial description of different types of sugars (with recipes) from Kitchn, here.

What do I want?

February 5, 2018

Puppy1 is the world’s 1st self-balance and auto-follow suitcase.

Puppy 1 drives on 2 wheels, supported by Segway’s balancing technology.

With modes of auto-follow and remote control, you can either let Puppy1 follow you anywhere or ask it go wherever you want. It can also go back and forth with its bi-directional intelligent follow.

It can follow you at a speed as high as 18 km/h with positioning accuracy up to 5°.

Its electric power assistant, power ramp, deceleration and parking brake makes it capable to meet all your travel needs.

The Puppy1 will launch in middle of the year on crowdfunding.

What do I need?

A farmer in China creates ‘Suitcasemobile’ an inexpensive small-sized scooters, by recycling old suitcases, capable of carrying two people.

The farmer came up with this suitcase invention, after ten years of work, that runs up to 12.5 Mph (20 km/h) for 37 miles on one charge.

The Suitcasemobile consisting of a stripped-down electric scooter embedded into a suitcase, also includes a navigation system.
