Thanks very much for your welcome. I'm beginning to feel that this is going to be a little nest of reason that I'll be coming back to often, for intellectual and emotional rest and recuperation. God knows we could use that every once in a while ;-)
Terry, thanks for the welcome. I'm doing my best to raise the pups to be reasoned individuals and to raise them with the capacity for critical thought processing-something that is so severely atrophied in so many people because of the religious meme....
"Joan, you mentioned awhile back about liking to eat a nice steak with some red wine. The Argentinians have a wonderfully simple accompaniment to their steaks: Chimichurri Sauce
It has lots of chopped parsley and garlic!!"
"I'm with you Chrissie, Dallas, and Daniel. If an anti-gay supporter wants to be a selfless martyr and end their life over two people loving each other, then let them kindly proceed, as long as they don't take any innocent victims…"
"A real scary video, Joan, but my nerves are made of straw. Glad the surgery went well! Yes, parsley fights inflammations, very good for you!
What a good picture of Ian, you look well!
And this is to wave goodbye as I'm off to the Vesuvius…"
