    Humans decended from dinosaurs.

    This I find to be highly likely. What intrigues me the most is that after all these years, NO ONE KNOWS. Evidently it is beyond our tiny brains to comprehend. And it seems the tiniest brains clutch at straws to soothe their enormous egos. Just my observation.

    SPLIT thread: Why to do anything about global warming

    I'm liking it so far. Here in No Ontario I've already got tomatoes in my garden that are knee-high. And I'm being facetious. I've long avoided getting into this discussion here but I finally feel I must say something. First, it's not global warming, it's climate CHANGE. That's why there's snow...

    Get a clue!

    Beets. Anyone?

    Say, Juan, and all my other epicurean friends here. Anyone care to share a good recipe for beets, pickled, spiced or otherwise? They'll be in the markets soon, cheap and they're so good for you. But they can be real hard to choke down without some special prep. I've had good ones a couple of...

    Anybody Like Curry?

    Hey Karrie, thanks for the tip on the green curry sauce. When you said your kids liked it I figured it wouldn't be overly hot.
