Occasionally I eat rye bread, sometimes multi-grain but my bread of choice is white. That may sound surprising but this bread differs from the white bread that everyone enjoys. This one is Rustico bread, a round loaf, made from barley flour, baked in a stone-deck oven for a crisp golden crust and a light and airy interior, meaning it has more holes than normal bread. A courser bread to chew on, what I call a more manly bread and when toasted it has a crunch to it.

A couple of days ago my son replaced the light switch in the bathroom. The one we had used a round knob, push for on/off and turn for intensity. The new one is called a slide dimmer. The thing is, the switch is between two pieces of trim and the plate is just a tad too wide. I used a file to shave it down a bit. Not too long age you had a plate with two screws. Now it has a second plate which pushes over the first one to hide the screws. Had to shave that one too but not so much.
In this day and age men continue to perform small repair jobs around the house. There are no limitations on gender when it comes to home maintenance and repairs. Anyone, regardless of their gender, can learn and engage in these tasks.

What I mean by that is that is the day I buy eggs. It has its own day because I buy them at an egg farm. A flat of cracked eggs for $7.00. They're not really cracked, they're just not perfect. As it happened, they didn't have any cracked, so I had to buy regular which is $9.50 a tray. For $9.90, I could get brown. I chose brown because I never do. It's just that whenever I see eggs in a T.V. scene, they are always brown. Weather it's a cooking or eating scene, they are always brown.
