Morning everyone

 I've only just discovered the taste of sourdough and now I am obsessed with it!

I got a starter going (her name is Marjorie) from J.Ross website and its looks very happy - i baked a couple of loaves from it, and its tastes quivk nice - I'd like it to have a bit more sour flavour, so I'll just have to work on it. And I just mixed up a wholemeal starter from FloydM - baking later on today, so woulf be interesting to see how that turns out - my first experience with rye/wholewheat flour - could be a total disaster - you never know ;)
