Hello Uncle Phaed,

I searched your cake index but did not find two items I was looking for:

Lady Baltimore Cake (Hough Bakeries in Cleveland used to make them)

Simnel Cake (I read about this in a Catholic magazine about Lent … apparently they were made on Laetare Sunday, the Fifth Sunday of Lent)

Thanks in advance if you are able to find anything.

Hello Christine,

The Lord Baltimore cake and Lady Baltimore cake recipes are on my site, but I somehow left them off the index. See below for the Lady Baltimore Cake recipe.

I’ll let you know about the simnel cake separately.

Hello Christine,

A simnel cake is a type of fruitcake that is popular in the UK, where it is traditionally served on Easter and British Mother’s Day or “Mothering Day.”

Dear Uncle Phaedrus , 

Kindly be of assistance.  I would like to buy this meter, EBay

I have failed to get the contact of the seller for a question. 
I want to know whether that meter marked 60Hz will work on our 50Hz system in Uganda .
Thanks for all the effort for an answer .

Regards, 
Frank

Frank,

I wrote to mspipeandsupply, who is the seller. Wait a few days to see if they reply.

Phaed

Frank,

I got this message from mspipeandsupply: “Please check with your local utility company or a licensed electrician.” I also wrote to the Elster company itself via the address on their website Elster to ask about the product. I’ll let you know what I hear.

Phaed

Frank,

I received a reply from Elster. They say that particular meter will not work on your system because it’s a 3 wire system whereas Uganda uses 2 wire, 50 Hz.

They gave an address for their Uganda distributor that you can contact: samuel@_ _ _
