Your presence in this kitchen is awesome Cuz Luke...you bring us so much
knowledge and everyday stuff of interest also. My memory failed me on
Rick Steves I'm afraid. Can't store it all, lol.
Time does fly, you are so right.
I haven't heard a thing from SteveUK...more's the pity, indeed, hope all is well with him.
Enjoy Downton? Silly question I know, it's brilliantly done. Glad to see Dame Maggie Smith got an award last night.
Good afternoon, Cuzzin :) Oh my yes, so many conversations are had in that length of time on a vast array of topics. Who can?

A Golden Globe for her?! Very much earned. Yep, Downton Abbey is still ... superb.

And thank YOU so much for writing so; however, it is an honor to me to participate here. Thank you for that.

I am with you on most things Quincy, and if there were still the need for civil rights marches, would be by your side! P and myself were
once in Aberystwyth (Welsh coastal resort and city) for a day out, when
the streets were suddenly flooded with protest marchers carrying banners about the situation(at that time) in China. Next minute I was in the middle of it carrying a banner....not one to sit on the fence.
What I would be interested to know though is, how do you feel about gays bringing up children with two same sex parents?
Throwing this out to anyone who would has an opinion on this.
I will put my own views in beforehand, which are, I cannot see a problem
myself, it is not an uncommon situation over here, therefore the child is not in the minority to perhaps be made fun of...the main thing is a
decent, loving, caring, secure homelife.
Not a problem with me. Parenting is parenting; the rewards and pitfalls are part-and-parcel no matter the orientation of the relationship which hopefully is nurturing, not dysfunctional.

<quoted text>Good Morning Boomer...very true from observations only better education and employment, and nobody goes through the adoption process lightly, so
can only be for the good. Is that divorce rates per se, or amongst same sex couples?
Man U won, 2-1..so it was close, Liverpool however played very well and are getting back to their old form, as they were once at the top of the game. They have a new manager who is doing well with his team. Thanks for asking....:) Did you watch the Globes last night? I believe it's on tonight over here.
Go Man U!
Actually, there isn't any data on same sex divorce, just hetero marriages only. Give it time. Only time will provide data.

However, don't compare civil rights to gay rights! Everyone can see you are black; not everyone can see you are gay!
I have no problem with gay couples. I have a problem with any group changing the very meaning of words because they want too. There are all kinds of sexual arrangements from shaking up to one night stands but they are different than marriage. I think there is a much better argument for having more than one wife to be a marriage. It is practiced today and in history

We lead a quiet life here...some would say almost boring, lol, but just wondering now if others have
the same experience I have when I go shopping.
I went over to the island yesterday, change of scene,
and the shops are close together, so headed for one
where I needed the majority of things on my list.
Was perusing the vegetables aisle when I got talking
to a lady who was also choosing potatoes. She started
entolling (is that the word)? on the merits of the sweet potato, and then went on to give me the recipe for a particular dish which calls for it, but other potatoes do not fit the bill. I politely said, that sounds nice, giving her the impression that I was going to make it, and so could not avoid putting sweet potatoes in my trolley.
I headed for the milk...she also has Soy milk, but as I reached out for my Alpro Original she told me that the store next door has their own brand...'and it's good' for half the price.
Not wanting to appear a spendthrift I thanked her for the advice (in Welsh) lol, and moved on, minus my milk.
I knew I had plenty of my own choice in my fridge at home, so no worries there.
The bottom line is, I came out without half the items on my list...I am left wondering if I look as though I need this kind of advice, having shopped under my own steam for a long long time.
I will forgive her though, as in recommending certain classes, she said they are for people of my age group...the OVER 50's. YEAH!

Gd Afternoon All,

Doing a bit of catching up this am...

El,
So glad you checked out that documentary,
it is a one off.

Going back to the VICK ON THE FEET method(:
I'm almost certain that 'twas M04 in the olden
days who wrote
about it, either HERE on this thread..
or 'Dirty Nelly's thread' before
it's demise;

apparently the addition of
putting socks on over the application
of vick IS part of it;
helps with absorption or some such..

In any case veryone swears by this
old remedy, just shows,
a lot of 'old wives tales'

Cold here threat of snow,
but in all, NOT BAD.

Pleasant thoughts everyone.
have a worth of their own.

Since I do most of the shopping and over the age of 50, I find myself helping young families make smart purchases. Our local grocer has an area called managers special. You can find a roast with plenty of uses for less than 10 dollars, US. You cut it up for steaks, stew or kabobs! That is three meals, in three days. And in your veggies and stuff, feast on!

Sweet potato! Mashed, baked, or fried, yummy!
Great with a bit of brown sugar on the baked or mash.

Indeed, the sweet potato or the yam variety is so tasty baked or mashed, with brown sugar.

I've never had fried sweet potato that I recall. Sweet potato pie is not something I would choose over other pies; nope. I would pass by sweet potato pie.

Lots of fast food places are selling sweet potato fries. They are great :)

Contrary to popular belief, sushi does not in and of itself mean raw fish http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sushi it's how the rice is prepared. I love California Maki rolls.

I seem destined not to see this movie Flower, the best laid plans and all that, it's such a hike to get to the cinema from here, that I think I am going to make a special journey to see Quartet
and another interests me is Lincoln...and catch Jack Reacher on dvd.
Trying not to visualise Tom C minus shirt...it's rather early in the moring (not yet 7 a.m) am in my bed complete with laptop catching up with the world.
(Flingin back duvet and slipping into slippers....
and wishing you the sweetest of dreams...<3
Good afternoon Lady El ... If you see Lincoln at the cinema you will NOT be disappointed ... it was a very good movie ... I think it may be nominated for some awards ... I will probably rent it when it comes around on Netflix ... if you're not destined to see Jack Reacher on the big screen, then yes, you must see it on DVD ... it'll be worth your while ... and plus you'll be able to re-run at your leisure ... there are a lot of good movies coming out ... I've had The Dark Knight Rises on my desk since last Thursday but I had a very good book I wanted to finish and then the weekend came around with the football playoffs ... I may get around to watching it this afternoon, who knows ... In any event ... hope you, P and the furry one's are all well and hope today finds everyone in good spirits ... Enjoy the rest of your day! Peace and Love, FC <3 ...

Good Morning Denny...I'm good thank you very much, I'm sorry to hear your
wife is no better, hope you are feeling much better after the weekend.
I didn't see your post earlier on..
While I am here, cannot believe I spoke to you that way yesterday!
Familiarity and all that. Totoally up to yourself whether you choose
carry on with your eating plan...it's healthier not to be carrying the weight around anyway.
But you do need those carbs for energy!...:)
