Good or Bad? I can't decide.

Found here at  Litchi and Chocolate, while I love them both, I'm not sure in they go together.  It's hard to even imagine the taste of both on my mouth at the same time.  I now feel the call of science.

In other news:  McDonalds Singapore is putting their US partners to shame with their Black Sesame McFlurry and Aloo Tikki Burger.  I had high hopes for the Durian Crunch McFlurry, but the comment section makes me think other wise.

Lychee Shishi Version 1 - Code

As promised here is the code for my ShiShi project(working title).  I know that it's not the best.  I learned so much while creating this.  One day I'll sit down and rewrite this whole thing.  Code after the break..


Another project I've been working on is this:

The picture above is of an early prototype.  On the bread board you are looking at:
  • an Arduino Uno
  • Sainsmart 4 Channel Relay
  • LCD shield made from the Maker Shed Kit     
  • a bunch of wires.
It's called an Environmental Controller.  The plan is for this device to control and monitor the grow tent.

Time for an Update

First the Wine

I never really got the chance to follow up on the Lychee wine.

I ended up with two separate gallons of wine.  I used the same recipe for the second one except instead of blending the fruit, I placed it into a mesh bag.  I did this because it was a such a hassle to remove and strain the fruit in the first one after primary.

Here they are together in primary

One does not simply "wish" for Lychee Wine,

it must be made.

I promise you, I cleaned that jar.  Inside and out.
What better use of 5lbs of lychee?
