Decent bagels are unavailable 'round these parts, so we make our own. My current stand mixer chokes on the dough, and kneading by hand is a lot of work. Is there a (non-commercial, non $$$$) mixer that is up for the task of mixing a very, very stiff dough? [more inside]

I was gifted a bottle of Zubrowka (also known as Bison Grass vodka) by a coworker today. I'm not a big straight-vodka person, so what kind of drink can I make with this? A quick Google shows apple juice is the traditional mixer. Do the cocktail experts of Mefi have any other suggestions?

Why was I hearing random, constant clicks when I ran audio thru my Mackie PROFX8 8-Channel Mixer into my Macbook Pro? The clicks sounded very much like the sound of someone pecking at a typewriter in the distance. The feed left the mixer at the Main Right/Main Left Balanced outputs thru a cable that then combined both channels into a single unbalanced stereo mini. Unorthodox, granted, but I've never encountered that kind of "typing" noise before. Any advice on what was causing it and how to avoid it?

What should I make with my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer? [more inside]
So, I got a KitchenAid stand mixer for Christmas this year...yay! But I'm also trying to get back to healthy habits* after overindulging over the holidays. Other than whole wheat bread (proven recipes welcome) is there anything healthy I can make with this thing? Should I spring for the pasta maker attachment to try whole wheat pasta? *Not a diet! Not a resolution!
My somewhat recent Kitchen-Aid stand mixer died and just repairing it is almost as much as replacing it, since it's no longer under warranty. I read a post on Chowhound awhile back about someone replacing the standard KA stand mixer motor with an "industrial" motor - that sounds like the route I'd like to take, except that I don't even know how I'd go about finding somewhere in Los Angeles to get that sort of work done. Is there a way to find somewhere to get this sort of work done in Los Angeles? Does anyone have any experience getting something like this done?
