How to make your YouTube video louder
I had a tough time trying to make my YouTube videos louder. The problem was that my sound on my videos were soft, almost inaudible. Initially, I thought it was my microphone. It definitely contributed to the problem. I bought a new mic after going through several shops and testing all their PC microphones. Then I noticed that I was shouting into the mic to get the sound louder and clearer. I tried covering part of the mic so that all of my voice goes into the mic but that caused a weird type of echo. In the mean time as I produced more and more videos I bought Wondershare Video Editor as this product was within my budget and superb to use. It did everything I needed to get done.

taking time lapse photos with a cheap digital camera
Honestly when I bought my Nikon Coolpix P310 a few years ago I was not thinking about taking time lapse photos. My main concern was a tight budget and a high resolution image. It provided both features in that it was not an expensive DSLR and it was 16 megapixel digital camera. I did not know it was a camera with time lapse mode. I had been taking still photographs for this blog as it was difficult to hold the camera in one had and make bread at the same time so it never occurred to me that I could make videos of my bread experiments. Then one day a month ago, I decided to buy a tripod as I was doing experiments with deep frying potato chips and plantain fries. Those first video recording attempts quickly evolved into time lapse photographs.

Crisps are very thinly sliced where as the chips are sliced thicker.You know me, I had to try to make it at home and as usual the first few trials were a mess even though they were tasty to munch on.I went back to making plantain chips and succeed.

Forgiveness of sins and false teachings in the church
I must tell you that after I wrote about evil works and judgment and Judgment Day, I have not attended church for some time. Over the years, I had visited many churches and kept my distance from the pastors. I guess it is because I began to disagree with many pastor’s preachings. Many of them are preaching false teachings and I guess this is to win over their congregation rather than to tell the whole truth.
Is Forgiveness of Sins a Sales Pitch
You know, in sales, you try to please your customers as much as possible so that they will return for more. Eventually, you develop the pitch that pleases the most number of customers. A pitch that your customers want to hear so that they will part with their money. I do not know if the final pitch is the truth or some awe inspiring, ego massaging, money releasing statement that gets you the money.
Are our pastors doing the same?

Apple juice with soda makes a refreshing drink
After the last homemade tomato juice I decided to try out a similar recipe with apples. This can be tricky as there are a whole variety of apples. I decided to go with the Granny Smith apples which are imported form New Zealand and France. They are smaller than other varieties and slightly on the sour side and are really crisp to the bite. In fact of all the variety of apples the Granny Smith is my favorite. Unlike the tomato juice, I did not add sugar or salt but substituted the sugar with Ice Cream Soda from F&N. Ice cream soda is quite delicious on its own so I decide to add ice cream soda as the sweetener.

Tomato juice can be really tasty and nutritious.
I never thought I would be making tomato juice until I watched Laura Calder on French Food at Home TV show explaining her tomato soup. Of course her soup had a lot more ingredients and looked delicious. So I decided to try something that will work with our local tomatoes. Our local tomatoes are not as tasty as the imported varieties so that would make it more interesting to come out with something simple easy and yet tasty.I did it. I managed to make a tomato juice that was tasty or rather delicious for me. And I think I was becoming addicted to the stuff. … just a warning in case you too like it but then everyone has different sense of taste and taste buds and prior prejudice and subjective sensibilities.

Plain bread in two hours
How dumb could I be? How dumb could I be? It was staring me in the face and I did not notice it. If you had been reading my previous articles on how to make plain bread rise more you would know that somewhere along the line my brain got disengaged. I’m still smarting from my stupidity.
I finally figured it out and succeeded in making plain bread within two hours from the time I began to weigh the flour until taking the baked plain bread out of the oven. Sure the plain bread can do with a little bit of improvement but it is nice to eat though. Oh, that picture you see on the left was taken while my brain was still partially disengaged – I had eaten some of the plain bread before I remembered that I wanted to photograph it.
