INGREDIENTS:
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup shortening
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup water boiling

METHOD:
Combine dry ingredients and cut in shortening. Disolve baking soda in the boiling water and add, continuing to mix with a knife. Mold with the hands and shape into a long wedge. Slice off and bake in a 400 F oven for 10 minutes. This recipe comes from the county where the Scots first landed in Canada (and where my dad was born.) To quote the author, "Our Scottish ancestors used "real" oatmeal when they made their favorite oatcakes. However sugar did creep in, as indicated bt this 75 year old recipe. (The book was published in 1971 so the recipe would be from the year 1894.)

Notes: Not wearing my glasses, I added 1 cup of boiling water by mistake. I then poured it into a 9x14 baking pan and baked it as squares, 400 for 10 minutes. Good for breakfasts.

Photography: "a term which comes from the Greek words photos (light) and graphos (drawing). A photograph is made with a camera by exposing film to light in order to create a negative. The negative is then used in the darkroom to print a photograph (positive) onto light-sensitive paper.

Poetry: "a form of speech or writing that harmonizes the music of its language with its subject. To read a great poem is to bring out the perfect marriage of its sound and thought in a silent or voiced performance. At least from the time of Aristotle's Poetics, drama was conceived of as a species of poetry."

Journal: " "Though a journal may be many things - a treasury, a storehouse, a jewelry box, a laboratory, a drafting board, a collector's cabinet, a snapshot album, a history, a travelogue..., a letter to oneself - it has some definable characteristics. It is a record, an entry-book, kept regularly, though not necessarily daily.... Some (entries) will be nearly illegible, written in the dark in the middle of the night.... Not only is it a record for oneself, but of oneself. Every memorable journal, any successful journal, is honest. Nothing sham, phony, false...." (Dorothy Lambert from Ken Macrorie's book, Writing to be Read )
A journal is a way to keep track of your thoughts about what you read... as well as what you did on any given day."

A Blog is an online journal created by server side software, often hosted by a commercial interest.

"The term "weblog" was coined by Jorn Barger[4] on 17 December 1997. The short form, "blog," was coined by Peter Merholz, who jokingly broke the word weblog into the phrase we blog in the sidebar of his blog Peterme.com in April or May 1999.[5][6][7] Shortly thereafter, Evan Williams at Pyra Labs used "blog" as both a noun and verb ("to blog," meaning "to edit one's weblog or to post to one's weblog") and devised the term "blogger" in connection with Pyra Labs' Blogger product, leading to the popularization of the terms."
