  1. I have an HP colour laserjet 2605dn printer that I'm looking to swap for a smaller colour printer. It's great quality, reliable, quiet and ideal for business and professional use, toners are needed though. If you want to swap or need more info, please get in touch with info of your printer or your query. If it's a combined printer / scanner you have, then I can also throw in my HP Scanjet flatbed scanner too.
  2. Consider swap for anything interesting, e.g. toddler toy(s), garden plants (especially ferns), ratchet spanner set, wooden train tracks, eel skin gloves, signed photo of John Craven, etc. What have you got?
  3. Also required to succeed at poker are copious amounts of patience and self discipline!

  6. Poker books for sale, £45 or offers for the lot.

  7. POTENTIALLY SOLD, WILL UPDATE IF IT DOESN'T SELL Almost brand new washing machine for sale. It came with a new house we just moved into. The washing machine was used only twice before we installed our old washing machine. This is the model: http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/household-appliances/laundry-dishwashers/washing-machines/indesit-eco-iwsc61051-washing-machine-white-21712936-pdt.html Please note the dimensions of this washing machine, I suppose you would call it slimline, it is about 40cm deep instead of the usual 60cm We have the manual but no packaging and it was never registered so you should be able to take up the warrantee. Buyer to collect from Peel. £120 or near offer.
  8. Howard Quayle MHK using the phrase "brass plate" companies and their input to GDP on radio this morning does not help matters.
  9. Sure, do you fancy a go at sourdough or prefer using regular yeast? A sourdough is easy and gives ace results, but there is a commitment in maintaining a live culture (it needs your attention for 10-20 mins a week tops). @Slim just been reading about sourdough - really interesting and I'd like to give it a go sometime - would you mind sharing the sourdough starter recipe you use? do you just use this sort of thing http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/sourdough_starter_22976 with Manx Queen flour?
  10. No. You see a lot of that elsewhere where they put chlorine and flouride in the water, but ours seems fine. The water doesn't kill my sourdough culture anyway, and they can be sensitive. Todays bake: thanks - i am becoming interested in sourdough bread now for sure!
  11. I have been baking bread in machines for years. The best recipe I know is 3 cups of flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 tbls oil, 2 tbls sugar, 1 cup warm water, 1 packet of yeast. Start by whisking the warm water, sugar, yeast and oil in a mixing jug, and leave to stand for 10 minutes. Put the salt in the bread machine first, followed by flour. Once the water mixture starts to bubble, add to the machine, and use "French Bread" setting (usually the longest program. After 10-15 minutes check the dough is in a single ball, add a touch of flour if too wet, or water if too dry. Close lid and leave until ready (DO NOT OPEN LID!). Works with all flours. The only trouble I have had is with old yeast. Good luck! Thanks very much
  12. Any one filter or boil and cool the water before using in their bread recipes? A guy suggested that to me the other day (we are in Peel . . .)
  13. Maybe I need to give it a try without the bread machine, at least for some loaves! I do use fast action yeast. As you say its such a variable thing. Like others I have reliable results with the Waitrose flour, but I would like to strive for excellent and use local flour if that's possible. Thanks for sharing the tips and recipes through this topic.
  14. Thanks for replying! I have some recipes I use that always work except whenever I've used manx flour instead of the usual flour the loaves come out heavy, dense and not well risen. So I haven't tried that often as not sure how to tweak it to make it a success. @Slim, do you have to use alot of yeast when you make your Manx flour loaves? I just found a wholemeal loaf recipe on the mills website http://www.laxeyglenmills.com/recipes.asp?article=419 but it seems to have alot of yeast even for 800g flour? Any tips welcome . . . maybe it's just not so good with the bread machine process. But I love the convenience and waking up and having a fresh loaf ready.
  15. I bake my own bread and would like to use Laxey Mills flour but haven't had much success unless I use Canadian Strong White bread flour and Waitrose wholemeal flour. Can anyone share successful bread machine recipes using local flour? I use a Panasonic SD 2501 bread machine. Unfortunately the recipes with the machine are a bit hit and miss. Thanks in advance
