I suggest a contest

Let's have a contest:


Come up with a question that hasn't already been answered on TFL ad nauseum, and a long list of answers (agreements and disagreements) can be found using the "Search" function provided--right-hand side of The Fresh Loaf banner on the home page.

Prize: everyone who enters will learn a new skill or hone an old skill: how to use the "Search" function on TFL.

Is there anything that hasn't been asked-and answered- on TFL? I am continuously amazed when I have a question to see how much information is on this site. Search is a powerful tool.

On the other hand, there are times I prefer to ask first so I can get a sense of direction or even so I can "hear" a human voice that may share or alleviate my frustration. Sometimes, I don't know enough to  know how to form the right question or keyword. Like the child I am, sometimes I just want an easy answer without exerting myself.

So now that I can answer a lot more questions, I try to remember that I certainly vexed the "adults" around me at times by asking instead of figuring out or searching for the answer myself. I appreciate the never-ending patience and enthusiasm of all the experts here who have guided me and the fact that they cared enough to provide the guidance.  When I feel impatient, I try to take a deep breath, relax and say to myself that today I will practice my skill in patience.

You sent my mind spinning on what could possibly be unasked. There is SO much information here.

What is the percentage of water in Greek Style Yogurt?

it is what ever is left after 4 hours of natural gravity draining in the fridge.  Mines thicker than that awful thin stuff sold in stores though :-)  You can salt it, press it in a mold with weight and make a nice yogurt cheese out of it too. Tangy like goat cheese.

...the simple answer to the simple question lies at the end of a load of 'deep geek speak' that you just don't understand... and sometimes you're not quite sure exactly what the question is that you need to ask because you are learning.
