Hello and thank you, from Aberdeen, Scotland

I've baked a wee bit for years. I'm now trying to bake more, and buy less. Bought a couple of books. Bought a machine (although I want to bake mostly by hand).

I've been browsing your site for some weeks now. It's great.

I've summoned up the courage to ask a question, and a couple more are formulating in the back of my head.

Thanks for creating and maintaining the site.

If the folks here can't help you, then there is no answer for your particular bread problem :-)

My mother had  pen pal from WW2 in Aberdeen Scotland, a common thing during the war years.  But they kept at it and visiting each other here and there several times until my Mom passed.

Welcome, Aberdeen Quine!  My father emigrated from Scotland to the U.S. A. as a young man.   As a young single person I visited his relatives in Kincardineshire.  When they spoke to each other and to their neighbors I was introduced to many words I'd never heard before, among them "quine" and "loon."  My husband and I visited Scandinavia many years later, and I was surprised to hear many of those same words, although I don't recall hearing "quine" and "loon."
