Musing on racism


Recommended Posts

Did you say TINA :biggrin:

A snap I took on Thursday evening down the smoke.

It’s an absolutely fantastic show, and Adrienne Warren who played the lead is brilliant, with the same energy and voice as the great Tina Turner.

Why is it people spend so much time and energy on the things that are different instead of what joins us together. None of us are pure bred , whatever that is. We are all a mixture  but most important

Yes Lizzie, I did say Tina. But it's not that one ! My missus used to sing in a choir when we lived in Bulwell but not since being in Sussex.

I do still get warbles emanating from the bathroom, or I have to make do with, " You need your hair cut ". Wouldn't change though. lips0

Compi don't know about pappa Johns's pizzas . We don't have them here. Home made cost nothing and you know what goes into them.

I might try "Rasta" on my next pizza, Nonna. Dreadlock and tomato would go nicely with mozarella.

We used to go to La Bucca regularly. We once hired the whole restaurant for a Sherwood Flying Club evening where a gourmet menu was served. We all thoroughly enjoyed it apart from our secretary who complained about rabbit being served. Apparently his family virtually lived on rabbit during the war and he vowed he would never touch it again!

Was it Luigi? He always had a sort of smile on his face. If it was Giorgio he maybe didn't understand the English sense of humour. He was the quieter one. Luigi always preferred to be centre of everything.

We go in La Capanna regularly, it’s a cosy restaurant with good old-fashioned Italian fare.  The remaining owner, Luigi, doesn’t smile too much and he doesn’t put up with any nonsense.  We were in there a few weeks ago and he had a war of words with a lairy diner, it’s good to have entertainment while enjoying your dinner!

Going back to the 70's now, too far back to remember.

Brilliant demonstration of thread drift.

 

It started as musing on racism and before long had reached a discussion on pasta.

 

Coming up to lunch time CT blame me

Lizzie he'd probably had a few, as he does. 

I think that is very probable Nonna, but didn’t want to cast aspersions (in case he reads this!)

Lizzie,  Don't think he'd object, if he does tell him I posted it.

I wouldn't advise it RR . Ask to see Tony , who is his partner to complain the other partner sadly died a while ago.
