Truth is, Jesus commands my destiny

"From life's first cry to final breath, Jesus commands my destiny"
- lyrics by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

In Christ Alone - Keith & Kristyn Getty

Barbecued Chicken Curry

Marinade chicken overnight in a mixture of yoghurt, turmeric powder, Kashmiri chilly powder, ground ginger, garlic, clove powder, cardamom powder, cinnamon powder, a little vinegar and salt

Barbecue the chicken till 90% done ... remember to keep the leftover marinade mixture

Fry onions till golden brown, add dried red chillies and star anise

Add the leftover marinade and cook for a few minutes, then  add fresh chopped tomatoes and cook for a few more minutes. Add salt to taste

Add the chicken and cook till it is 100% cooked

Add dried fenugreek leaves for flavour and cook for less than a minute

Believe it or not, the chicken tastes best ... 

... eaten the next day!

#Cooking #Cuisine Kabab or kebab, call it what you may, I'm #grilling them :-)

Mix ground beef with very finely chopped red onions, green chillies, ginger, and a little salt
Spread a little oil on the metal skewers, and press the meat firmly as shown above, and grill till done

Invite friends over, and have a peaceful weekend!

#Scalability #Reliability and #Availability were the 3 criteria my son and I considered when we built a #computer

It took us a few days to research and determine the specifications of the computer we wanted to build

The rest was easy - buying the hardware, assembling the components, installing the software, and configuring the system

Teaming - two hands are better than one

This sticker came along with the OCZ SSD

We figured it would be a good idea to install the operating system on the SSD, as a result the computer boots up in about 20 seconds!

Now why would anyone want to eat this?

After adding 2 SSD's and 2 HDD's the computer looks empty because it has enough room and empty slots for additional RAM and disk drives

We can help you build a computer if you like

Good evening Miss :-)

The female Mallard is back after a long time away ...

Welcome back!

How I replaced the spark plugs in the Audi A3

Did 85,439 kilometres across 8 US states and all of Canada (except the North West Territories, Yukon and Nunavut)

The only tools required to replace the plugs are an extension and a spark plug socket

The electrical connector must be gently released from the coil without breaking the tabs

Use the extension and spark plug socket to loosen and remove the spark plug

 The old plugs were Bosch, the new ones are NGK

Put everything back in the reverse order, and remember not to over tighten the new plugs

All set and ready to go
