It's just struck me that Livejournal attempt to charge you for the privilege of blogging, whereas Blogger, if you set up Adsense ads on it, will actually pay you for blogging.

Interesting that both business models work.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is wrong - I realize this is a popular trope.

Specifically, cheese straws should be made with self-raising flour, not plain flour, and with roughly grated cheese (50-50 red leicester and strong cheddar works well) nor finely grated cheese. If you do it how he recommends, you end up with oblongs of dense, flat pastry. Do it my [sister's] way, and you get light, fluffy straws with nobbles of melted cheese throughout. Lovely.
