Hey, what makes you think it’s only Europeans who love being in the kitchen?  I’m a very good cook and have developed some excellent ethnic recipes.  LOL

They don’t call it “the culinary arts” for nothing… 91.gif

Your best bet is to stick to cooking—and stop looking for salvation and the supernatural. You will do yourself a favor. You appear to be chasing chimeras and wasting time, energy and intellect.

Tao, You sound like a good prospective guest for swell dinner parties.  Welcome to the site.  I hope you take part in some of the discussions.  A Taoist perspective might be interesting.  Though I am not as sure as you that your evolution regarding spiritual matters will not continue.  Your history suggests that you have “tried on” and rejected much superstitious nonsense, so far.  But even if you stop with Taoism, it seems to me to have some positive philosophical ideas and its superstitious B.S. elements seem to me to be relatively benign.

As a fabrication of our own consciousness, our assignations of meaning are no less “real”, but since humans and the fabrications of our consciousness are routinely fraught with error, it makes sense, to me, to, sometimes, question such fabrications.

OK ladies, time for me to act as a male chauvinst moderator.  You are both very good posters, and have strong opinions which help your posts.  However, this continuing disagreement isn’t helping anyone, so let’s end this and switch to more meaningful areas.

I was going to check out available positions and areas but I could not find any cat fields.  Dang, now we’ll have to continue to keep the local cat herd in the garage.

BTW, did you see the video of the family cat that saved the autistic boy from a dog attack? That was rather amazing.

On another group that I occasionally visit. Lois pointed out that there had to be at least three cameras from the angles the views were taken, so possibly it was staged rather than spontaneous.  And I get called a spoilsport. LOL

I doubt the whole thing was staged. Who would put a child in danger? But the video was certainly manipulated fo dramatic effect. It was not spontaneous.

Also, who said the boy is autistic?  The parents and the boy were interviewed on the radio last night and he sounded like a perfectly normal 6-year-old. Unfortunately the cameras and the angles were not discussed.
