As soon as I spotted the fresh skate wings at 99 Ranch Market I knew I have to have a piece. While I never cook skate wing successfully before I have very good idea what I would do with it. The piece I picked came in at 2 pounds.
I have this GoPro Hero 5 Black camera a few weeks now. As I purchase it for using in the Mini on the tracks I have not really put it to use, except perform a suite of checks to make sure the camera functions as I expected. Overall I am quite pleased with it, though there are some shot comings. It is supposed to be a keeper.
I made a third char siu 叉燒 pizza as I still have quite a bit of tomato sauce that I made scratch from one can of whole tomato. Even with this forth pizza, there is still enough left for a fifth pizza. This is the second char siu 叉燒 pizza that I feel that I really have gotten the recipe and technique down. I now just buy the pizza dough from Trader Joe and save so much time and effort. Their fresh dough is extremely good and cheap.

I was at Trader Joe and I saw these prepared pizza dough. There are three kinds, an organic white, wheat, and white flour. The choice is easy and I picked up 2 bags of one made with white flour. I didn't have any plan as what kind of pizza I would make.

I made a few variations of a simple stir fry dishes with this one hairy gourd 毛瓜. I like hairy gourd if it is cooked just right and it is still a bit crunchy. A stir fry hairy gourd is best with very few ingredients, and seasoning chosen so not to obscure the gourd's mild sweetness.

To prove out my concept of assembling a GoPro camera mount for used with Harry's Laptimer I invested in this 1 inch ball base. This forms the foundation of my GoPro camera mount that will be secured to the head rest of the passenger seat. One of my objective is to be able to use the camera with a passenger.

Now that the rainy season has started, I have time to begin think of a few enhancements that I may make to the Mini. Some of these are from my experience of driving the Mini on the track hard that I discovered something that I would not have otherwise.

Driving on the track tax the car much more than one would ever driving on public road, as I found out from personal experience. It is extremely important to perform detail pre and post track day mechanical inspections. The heat, mechanical stresses, shocks, and vibration put the parts to their extreme limits. The most dangerous is fasteners loosen from shocks and vibration. There are many things I took for granted until I discover their vulnerabilities when pushed to the limits.
