Obama Bread...or otherwise known as the bread baked on 'swearin-in' day (can't spell inagrul....)

Oh--
I'm new to the forum, back into sourdough after far too many years to mention.

A few who welcomed me mentioned you'd want to see photos of the fruits of my labor....well, here's the 'photo record' of Tuesday's efforts.

In honor of our 44Th president, I've named it: Obama Bread!
At 8am, 2 cups starter, fed with 1/2c water & 3/4c plain unbleached flour:

1 hr later, almost tripled in size:

so, there ya have it~
How'd I do?
