nothing much to report

 The days are running together- I've been here about 2 weeks, but it's hard to tell the difference between one day and the next. There's plenty of work, some off time here and there, too, but not much. 

 The weather is turning colder, and while I'm not seeing the massive backlog of container ships bringing all the cheap Chinese crap for Christmas, I am seeing a LOT of tanker traffic, and I'm doling out small parcels of fuel for these ships almost every day.   Weird. 

    Not much inspiration happening at the moment. Thanksgiving is Thursday, and we'll cook well here on the HQ, small as it may be. 

Also, whoever said air fryer french fries are just as good as the real thing can eat a dick. Ruined a perfectly good russet spud.

Whilst air fryers are supposed to give us oil-free nirvana...

I have a spray/mist bottle with peanut oil. Dry the potatoes, put in bowl, stir while misting them down. For one potato, a tablespoon or two will make a noticeable difference.

America's Test Kitchen took it a step further, do a search on 'atk air fryer french fries' for their method.
