A project I had the pleasure of working on back in 2015 has won the Alberta Transportation Minister’s 2018 Award of Excellence for Safety Innovation.
Just a short note to hopefully help others:
If you are creating a “Search Folder” in Outlook, and are using custom criteria, and one of them is “In Folder” with the condition “Does not Contain”, you must list all your keywords in a single criterion.
For example, I have a Search Folder called “Weekly Threads” to help me review the email activity from the week when writing my weekly report.
On the advanced tab, you can add the filter expressions you want. I don’t want to see anything from my Junk or Deleted Items folders, and I was struggling to get my Search Folder to work.
I stumbled across this article, which describes how to use Search Folders, within which was a description on how the author of that article filtered out mail from multiple folders.
Until now, I hadn’t been able to get it to work, and resorted to filtering out by sender. Now, I have the answer! You must put all the folder search terms into one, single search criterion for the filter to work.
I find it strange, or at best non-intuitive that you while you can use multiple criteria for things like “From”, you must use only one criterion for the “In Folder” field. But, it works, so on to the next thing!
Jamie Oliver’s Recipie
So. Darn. Good. The gravy is rich and sweet. I only did 2 shanks, the recipe calls for 6, so I had a lot of extra sauce left over.
- Slice the fig open through the top, near the stem.
- Mash some goat cheese in.
- Wrap up in Prosciutto, and secure with tooth-picks.
- Grill until the Prosciutto is crispy. Serve and eat immediately.
I find that I enjoy only 1 of these in a sitting. Two, tops.
Meet Zeus, the next-door neighbour’s dog. We dog-sat for them while they were away in Montreal. Ella was super excited, and Lisa and I really enjoyed having a dog in the house.
Zeus is super-chill, and lounges around for most of the day.
But he *LOVES* his walks, and we went for some Epic walks in the neighbourhood. My step counter was very healthy! Can you guess which day we gave him back?
We love pizza here in the Hawkes household. Like, really love it. Like, so much that I’m seriously considering building a wood fired pizza oven.
Until then, we’ve started experimenting with making dough, and various ways to cook it. Our tried and true marinara sauce is a real champion here.
Before I broke the pizza stone (boo!) we did it on the gas grill. It turned out great!
I had done this before, but this time I did it on the Charcoal grill.
I wasn’t sure where to place the board, to get enough smoke without burning it too fast. The board had been soaked, but that might not do much good it turns out. In the end, I aligned the board edges to hang over the coal baskets by about 2 cm, which might have been too much…
It was so good. Almost too good. The extra smoke from the charcoal, plus the burning plank, resulted in smoked salmon, instead of baked salmon with a slight cedar taste.
Everyone agreed it was excellent, but one couldn’t have too much of it, or too often.
Homemade marinara sauce, good provolone and mozzorella cheese, fresh basil and panic crumb. Served pub style, with a cold beer. Yum.
Start the steaks somewhere other than directly over the coals. When the internal temp is about 10 degrees below your target, move the steak directly over the coals. This “reverse sear” technique allows you to cook the whole thing to the desired “done-ness”. The result is a uniform colour from edge to edge, and then a super crispy and caramelized exterior.
