I found it interesting that he actually let his kids try chicken once to see for themselves. That certainly goes against the "Veggie or else" stance that some on here feel Paul gives off.

Though, of course, his response might have been different had they not disliked the chicken dish, but started jumping up and down declaring that they loved meat, and they wanted meat all the time, and to try lots of different kinds.

Good point. Even if they did like it, it sounds like their mother was a good cook, though, and that probably helped counter what they were missing. I often tell my friend who hosts the orphan Thanksgiving dinner I go to that if she cooked all my meals, I'd go vegan. :-)

Perhaps, but perhaps not. Kids are weird like that sometimes. For instance, my wife and I HATE meat loaf, but we let our son try it and he loves it, so much so that my mother-in-law knows what to make him when he visits their house.

I would do the same with my kids.  I get guff from people about this mentality:  If I have children I will raise them off vegetarian… but once they were old enough to make those decisions I would let them try meat and then eat it if they like it..  but I would want them to know where it comes from.  It may sound harsh, but it's the truth and I would want them to know before they ate it.

I have been a vegetarian for 5 years now, and a couple of years ago my husband decided to go veggie as well.  I didn't push him into it (despite what his parents believed ahdn_paul_01).  He came to it completely on his own.  Living with me was a big influence, though I didn't try to make him change.  He understood why I was doing it and was always really open to talking about it.  a-hard-days-night-john-1

It's 11/12/13, well for those who write the month first anyway.

We can celebrate this combination again next month with those who put the day first.

It probably was on one of those scrolls in the library at Alexandria that was ransacked.

mmm, you might be interested in this story about Treasure Island that came to my email today.

If William Hung didn't signal the end of civilization, no numbers game is going to do it.

A really bad singer (and I mean REALLY BAD... dude sounds like a seal getting assaulted) who tried out for American Idol back in its more popular years and was rejected right out of the gate. Yet he caught on because mainstream America has no taste and actually had a little run at stardom. Thankfully, he went back to the hole he came from.

I think it was less a case of legitimate bad taste and more "so bad it's good" irony. Plus/ he came across as very sweet, so I think people enjoyed watching him bask in his 15 minutes. He was featured on Jimmy Kimmel in skits for a while.

Cooking is a weird experience.

All the other times i've followed the recipe for scones to the letter and measurement and no rise, nothing. They just sit there mocking me with their smallness. Today i mess the recipe up by adding too much milk, have  to do very rough guess corrective adjustments and what do you know, the damn things rise. I don't whether to laugh or cry.

Sir John Tavener, the classical composer, died today at the age of 69 following a long illness.

Two of his earliest works were released by Apple Records. The Whale was premiered at the 1969 Proms, and recorded and released by Apple the following year. Ringo was one of the "speakers" on the recording. The following year Apple released Celtic Requiem.

John and Ringo were both great fans of his work, and he was considered one of the most important modern classical composers, and is perhaps best known because of his compositions for the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales.

A fair and just question if William was an executioner.

hahahaha.

When people are sending out all their "I'm thankful fors" this month, I keep thinking that I'm thankful I've never had to be an executioner (hanging, guillotine, firing squad, electric chair, lethal injection, etc.)

Last year I said that I was thankful I wasn't a second or lower class passenger on the Titanic.

Does anyone here have the Anthology Director's Cut DVDs? And if so; what do ye think about them?

I've been looking at them on the internet but I don't think mam will let me buy bootlegs for €40+ a-hard-days-night-george-10 They are meant to be worth it purely for George's comments alone but what do the rest of y'all think?

They were up on youtube a few years back and were really good, in some ways better than the official anthology as some interviews were more frank than what were released, unused video clips, a few topics that weren't included in the other, plus there were a few bits of music (eg the discarded "ummm" from the end of A Day In The Life) in there. 

I'd never suggest paying anything for bootlegs as you are basically paying someone for what isn't their's in the first place (and is technically illegal) .

Anyone have any ideas on what to do when you've had the week from hell, and you know next week will be pretty much the same, and you're dreading it? I know we're only at Friday night, but last Sunday I put off going to bed 'till I couldn't keep my eyes open any more, just wanting to deny that the new week is nigh, and that didn't work. Want to try something else this week - ha!

How's all the other biblers tonight?

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.
