    Damn, I hope I am over this flu by then.  Perhaps in honor of my flu, I should have "Pork Steak" instead.

      Since pork steaks originated in our town they have made some inroads into other states, but many of these people do not know what a "pork steak" is. I feel sorry for them.  Pork steaks at this abode and ribs too and maybe beef steak.

    If you consider the elements of War and the sacrifices made by those who gave up THEIR Lives to ensure you were able to complain about such 'B S'.... Perhaps you may consider playing TAPS for the Moos that are about feed your nation.

    Come visit us and see what we sacrific in memorial of our fallen.  But Please Don't be Late..

      They whine about everything, Yanks whine, its known, they are the only race that can be seen on Television after a big Disaster, and Stand there being interveiwed going" OMG OMG I just can't believe it (Remember not a hair on their heads has been harmed. Then on comes the Big Hollywood. My English name is one of those that settled America, and I always wonder, if I my ancestors had gone there I would have turned into a total Drama Queen as well. Thank you for their decision to go to the Antipodes.The sacrifices we make, are that we honour our fallen in all the Wars, evenm little kids are wearing grandpas medals, and march in our Streets, to lay flowers (Red Poppies on the Cenotaphs. ) We do not gripe or whine.
      Visit us on Anzac day and see how you should do it.

Ditto with my ancesters who settled in the States.  I hope my Grrrrrrr cousin takes the opportunity to understand people.. we all respect other people irrespective of nationality.. but people are always the ones that we desert when we desert ourselves.  Pretty sad outlook, I reckon.. clearly needs to undergo an Optorectomy smile  AND my invitation was or him to visit us for a Hungi or Boil Up smile  We have the right size pots for him smile

        Well, darnit all. I thought I had found a place where our interests and passions brought us together in a way that transcends nationalism and so-called patriotism.

        I live in the US. Just born here. Not really a choice. To act as if all people in the US behave in the same manner seems just plain silly.

        Can't we all just get along? There are jerks and jackasses of ALL nationalities.  smile

          The term you used is widely understood to be a racial slur. Please refrain. History is a pretty poor excuse for bigotry.

              Really? Those things are supposedly very healthful. Are they vegetarians? I, personally like both of those, and would find it hard to cook without onions.

                I think they are classified as rajasic foods and are not good for those seeking spirituality smile

                  Ok-- there may be some sense in that-- but isn't gas kind of spiritual? Sorry, no disrespect meant.

                  I guess a truly spiritual seeker would eschew (not chew) anything that might be disruptive and distracting to the purest quest, and eat only the simplest of foods necessary for life.
                  Which make me think of Moses in the desert, hearing complaints from the people for the lack of leeks and onions that they had in Egypt

                    WOW!! Misha you truly are very knowledgeable.

                    Rochelle- Even I had this argument with my grand mother about people being born in deserts and snow (i.e., the logic behind it). I am not sure exactly but they say only food offered to God as prasad/offering should be consumed by the practitioners (and onion/garlic are in the excluded list that can be offered). smile

    Meat and soy "meat" are going to be eaten here.  The food isn't what matters; it's the community and the remembrance of all the fallen.  May God (in whatever form you believe) bless all who work for freedom around the world.

    So I guess this is not practiced much in Italy.

    But thinking back to the Exodus story, this was a time of purification for the Jews-- they had to do without certain things, at least for a time.
