    Hi Bertram,

    Thanks. It was (in true Scottish style) porridge and tea. I have it every day. Works for me!

    Cheers!

    My usual breakfast too, Bertram. And made in a pot rather than the microwave. Salt added too, and I usually add in fruit, such as raspberries! My old highland granny used to steep the oatmeal overnight in the pot too.

    If the oats are steeped in warm water overnight then the enzymes have time to convert the starches into shorter chain sugars before cooking. This means there’s no need to add white sucrose, which is a disgusting sugar and is definitely not one of the delicious fruit sugars - fructose, glucose, maltose and lactose (maybe) etc - that are present in healthy oats.
    Luckily grannies throughout the ages have known this.

    You would probably want to use pinhead oatmeal for the overnight soak approach.
    Personally I use medium ground oatmeal which I cook from scratch in a pan in the morning. It only takes a few minutes. Perhaps that is actually closer to 'brose'. I hardly ever use porridge oats (rolled oats).
    I have honey and milk and sometimes add berries or grapes. I don't use sugar.

    "What is the difference between porridge and Brose?

    Brose is generally denser and more sustaining than porridge, and is best made with medium or coarse oatmeal—not rolled (flattened) "porage oats". In the 16th century, a mixture of oatmeal and water was carried by shepherds; brose resulted from the agitation of the mixture as they climbed the hills."

    I think we might be in danger of hijacking the thread!

    In the U.S. we consume our oats as "Cheerios", they come in a box you buy at the store.
    Little children carry small containers full of them where ever they go and snack on individual "o's.
    In truth you could probably live on Cheerrios and raisins, I'm pretty sure many between the ages of 3 and 5 already do(well there is probably Peanut butter somewhere in there).

    If there isn't already a Scottish tune called "Porridge and Tea" one is certainly in order, I'll let the original posters work out the authorship.
    Certainly a new thread called "Music after Breakfast" is waiting for the bread to toast.

    The porridge thread is certainly lengthening with all the talk of enzymes and other scientific things I am sure my granny had no knowledge of, and as a native Gaelic speaker the words would not have existed in her vocabulary, but as Simon says, grannies always just knew these things. Anyway, to continue TS's ideas, how about Whisky Before Breakfast as a possible for inclusion? Here is a version I did along with Fiddler's Dram a couple of years back. Drams and porridge!

    A very distinctive sound from that oud, Jo, and well played as always. In the second video you seem to be playing left-handed - has the video been reversed somehow?

    Really enjoying this mandolin. It still has old strings on it, might put the new ones I bought recently on it this weekend to see what that sounds like. These old strings don't sound half bad tho, so I might just keep em on for a while longer. Who knows.

    Very fine playing, Ryan. I agree with you about the strings - they have a mellower quality that new ones generally lack till they have been played in a few times.

    One of those quintessential mandolin tunes, "The Hills of Manchuria". I first heard this recorded by the Mando Boys, Peter Ostroushko, Dick Nunneley, Joe Trimbach and John Neimann. Played on a 1917(?) Gibson A2, a 1920 Gibson F4, a 1925 Gibson H2 mandola, and a 2000 Ratliff mandocello.

    Novem Portis (9 Gates) Waltz, adapted from Polish composer Wojciech Kilar's theme music to the film "The 9th Gate". Performed on 9 mandolin instruments including mandolins, mandolas, octave mandolins and mandocellos. I hope the composer isn't turning over in his grave.

    Your latest three postings here well illustrate your skills both as a builder and as a player, Jo. The mandolin has a particularly lovely sound.

    I've already posted this one in the "bluegrass" section. I can't play anymore since a stroke in 2016, but this is a John Reischman tune we used to play with my band "Wondergrass". Here at the second Bluegrass Festival in La Roche sur Foron, France in 2007.

    Aoibhneas Éilís Ní Cheallaigh on Mandolin Ensemble



    Aoibhneas Éilís Ní Cheallaigh (Elizabeth Kelly's Delight) played here on mandolin sextet including mandocello, octave mandos, mandolas and a mandolin. There are 9 tracks the mandocello being doubled, the Weber Mandola and Collings mandolin each taking 2 individual parts, The octaves and the Gibson mandola play one part each. In the fashion of Barry Phillips from his "Cello" recording.
    Hopefully having the word "sex" in the description will increase the clicks!

    Thanks Jim, no I'm a right handed player with right handed F style mandos, that was just a trick of a paint program, I should spend more time on the visual but usually wind up dialing that in.
    I always thought it would be cool to play over animations ( a guy did animate a band I was in once) but arranging and recording seems quite enough as it is.
    I first heard Patrick Ball play Planxty Burke, but he omits the 3rd part, I think the version I play is the Sylvia Woods version? I kind of took from both O'Neils (which I hear is accidently incorrect) and a few of the 6/8 versions on the Sessions.org

    A laid back original piece for a trio of mandolin, mandola and Irish bouzouki called Floating on the Breeze. All Australian made instruments - the mandolin by Peter Coombe, mandola by Andrew Tatnell and the bouzouki by Gladstone Guitars.
