the secret is take your time low heat and slow cooking
Should "The" be capitalized? Shouldn't there be a period at the end of the sentence?

Shouldn't it say "USE low heat"?

Yes El,
so sad about these deaths so close to Christmas..
also one never knows what's on another person's mind.
Yesterday, I was in a busy store Xmas music blaring etc,
I was trying to choose between two coloursa for a gift, a lady stood near
me so O said to her how I'd be grateful for her opinion,
which she freely gave, before parting I said
"Hope you'll have a WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS"
surprisingly, she replied
"I wont" as she walked away, I thought her tone was a bit sharp
but paid no more attention until 5 mins later as I was engrossed
in something else, I got a gentle tap on the shoulder,
it was the same woman with tears in her eyes.
She said
"I didn't want to appear rude, but fact is,
I'm heartbroken, my 35 yr old son committed suicide
just 3 weeks ago"
El,I was totally at a loss,
knowing any words would ring hollow now.
I gave her a hug and said "I'll pray for you" she said
"I'd like that, I am just staying out & about wandering
through shops in a daze"
and I was thinking
everyone else caught up in the razzle dazzle
of Christmas...
That moment will stay with me this Christmas,
most of all NOT being able to help her.
Life teaches every day.
Very poignant Grace .... and I think you did help her jsut by "being there". The incident caused her to reflect on her own behaviour and how it made her behave to a stranger, she felt remorse and sought you out to apologize, and then she had someone to share with, and I am sure you managed to help comfort her ... all of that probably helped bring her "out of her daze" ..... all of that was healthy for her ....

There have been fights and even a couple of killings in Sihk temples in our city over the years, all due to fighting over interpretation of simple things, like of there should be chairsprovided for the sickly and elderly within the temple ... crazy huh???
Crazy to us, maybe their thinking is that the sick and/or elderly should pray at home.
How can one possibly pray in their manner on a chair?
We owed a lot to the Sikh during WW11 incidentally. Not to mention the Indians,
Hindu, Buddhist et al.

Reminds of this ditty:

Where seldom is heard

Home, home on the range ....
Such peaceful lyrics.....I believe Grace posted a link sung by Bing Crosby.
Was wondering if you knew who sang it originally, was it Gene Autry>

Nope, they want everyone to come to the temple unless bedridden ..

The chairs were for eating areas ... the fundamentalists wanted them to sit on the floor while eating.

I see.........

lots on the news this morning about the murderers who killed Drummer Lee Rigby
in broad daylight on a London street. The guilty pair have been found guilty, not
surprisingly, not yet been sentenced. But this morning one of their brothers,
a vey articulate man, spoke about the Muslims in this country who condemn this
attack, saying, they may condemn it, but none of them are in agreement with
'foreigners' being in Iraq, Afghanistan.

Personally, I feel if we are to watch every comma, every full stop (period) capital letters and the odd spelling mistakes.....we lose the flow of what we wish to put over in our conversations.

By thinking twice about it, detracts from what we intended to say.

I think we can be too correct.

As a child I was forced to repeat my words over and over until my
pronunciation was perfect, perhaps one reason why I love
regional dialects now.

OMG!

I had all set to get up very early today
so I could go to the huge shopping mall near me,
[one or two things I need]

planning to get there
BEFORE the crowds arrive, as, sometimes,
it's like a stampede over there!
anyway I did the exact opposite slept through
everything, alarm bells, the lot only to wake at
9:30am!!!!

I remember last evening sitting in the kitchen
just wondering HOW I'd make dinner, as I had
ZERO energy, amazing how our bodies take over
and look after us, pitching Christmas and
other plans aside:)
and paying attention to the necessary things.

I'd been on a very strong antibiotic and I often
think, in such cases, if we could only observe the battle
going on inside us in this other world,
we would be amazed.

Anyway, I feel good now and will rearrange the day.
one thing I have learned over the years is that
no matter what tizzy folks get into, and some indeed,
lose the run of themselves,
Christmas comes and goes and fades and we all
ease back to normality..

[says Grace, stating the obvious LOL]
but sometimes it's good to just name it.

Happy day ALL here.

Very well said El..

Same over here
small example

if someone asked

"Would you like to come for a walk
with me this evening"

Normal reply>

"Thank you, but since we might
be out longer than planned,
I might pass on it"

Irish reply>

Hah? yerra Jayzus no boy,
come'ere to me, sure we'd be out
half the feckin' night"

delivered in a voice like that of
the elephant in this Irish clip lol



With that warm regards to

El, Franko, Tally, Dennis, DW, Vee, PFff, CC.

ok, I have a little story I want to share with u and I hope u guys enjoy it as much as I did...
was talking on the phone with my daughter and my oldest granddaughter asked if she could talk to me for a minute.

(gonna backtrack to the summer when we would go to the shore, I would take the girls and walk the beach to look for shells. one time we found 2 black pieces of coal in the sand and so I explained to the oldest about santa and coal)

so on the phone she asks me if I still had them and I told her I did and if she wanted them I would give them to her on Christmas day when I saw her, she asked if I could stop by their house before that and when I asked why, she said that she wanted to put them beside the cookies and milk that they would be putting out for santa on Christmas eve, that she thought santa would get a Big kick outta that and the joke would be on Santa this year. and so I laughed and told her she was a very clever girl and she says "yep, im just like Mom Mom"
lol
then my daughter gets back on the phone, laughs about that statement and says "u know mom ur brainwashing my kids here" and I said, "yep, ain't it great" lol

kids really are funny little creatures, it reminds me that the spirit of Christmas is alive and well..
and
Life's good!

:)

Bora Da and have a great weekend!

PFfff :) Thank you for this post.
"I enjoy it, u know, its exciting seeing my grandkids happy faces, but yet I feel depressed thinking about my own kids too, about all the good times......" And that's the forefront of focus in the familiar as well as helping (as we can and will) to others in the community in our own way.
A couple of weeks ago, a 32 yr. old single mom working in a convenience store I use passed away from a heart attack! So, it's important to cherish the times we have when we have them.
That's the 2nd backyard winter scene I've used in about 2 weeks. This one is straight out from my back door and all is my property. Both were from last year at Christmas time.
I wish the very same for you from Santa -- Merry Christmas!
I don't really want to talk to much about sad things but ur statement about the 32 yr old brought to mind about last Christmas for me.
theres this store I go to at time when I need to get beer or wine, this women I would see all the time, always cheerful and pleasant, I didn't really know her, but I just Liked her as a person, ya know? one day right before the holiday I go there and see her picture by the register and then read what it said, she had passed away from cancer at the age of 50, only lived 2 months after getting this sad news...
do u know that bit of news really really got to me, I felt depressed for weeks on end and every single time I would think about it, every time I have to go there again I think of her, and I didn't even know the woman,
but sometimes, every once in a while a person passes by ur life and whether u really get to know them or not, they somehow leave a lasting impression on u.
I don't know why but this women did that to me, and so I try really hard now to Not take life for granted, because I know for a fact this could all end at any second...
I wanna leave this world being able to say it was all worth it, and that I met a lot of wonderful people in my lifetime, and I have so far, in the real world and surprisingly on the internet.

Bora Da Luke!
:)
