What about the scene in one of the Hunger Games series where Peeta eats an oyster and finds a black pearl and gives it to Katniss?

I saw the movie "Chocolat" last week, I didn't crave chocolate until the second time I watched it. Now I'm on a chocolate streak (dark chocolate only).

Oysters are on the list of foods to avoid once you are over 65. Foods to avoid if you're over 65

That's an interesting list, blissful. Considering my great aunt ate many of those things and lived safely until age 86, I don't know how much stock I'd put in it though. Himself loves Bleu cheese. He's 67. I guess I'll keep buying it for him and see if he keels over.

Its like its a contest in here sometimes.
It's caused by pollen, like sneezing and sniffles.

That article could pertain to children as well, in that, both immune systems aren't in their prime.

I think that I would prefer to be dead than avoid all the things that might be bad for me.

Yes, me. A group of us shared a huge platter of (raw) oysters in a restaurant in France. I was the only one with a bad reaction. I'm not sure whether I got the rogue oyster on the platter or whether I'm allergic so I've never tried them since.

A pity, because I loved them at first slurp.

Foods to avoid if you're over 65! Oh dear. I am sensible about what I eat and where I eat it but, really, if I've got to 67 without dying from food poisoning, I think I can probably risk some of the foods on that list. I'd rather die tomorrow as a result of eating something delicious than live to 100 on bland food considered "suitable" for an old woman.

Food

Kayelle and I were on a 32 day cruise on Princess from Buenos Aires to Los Angeles. Our comment on the food served was it was "dumbded down" to suit the Midwestern taste. I found a website offering 12 different spices in a travel kit, and we may have to take it on our next cruise along with a bottle o f Sriracha.

*AHEM* What do you MEAN by "dumbed down to suit the Midwestern taste"? As someone who was Cleveland born-and-raised, I am insulted, Souschef. And sad. I'm guessing you've never vacationed anywhere near America's North Coast?

When I was in my very early 20s, two of my female co-workers took me under their wings independently to educate my palate. Dear V. was an accomplished home chef. After she was widowed, I was privileged to be invited to many dinners (working as prep-cook, too) that had a table with a Brit, a student from St. Thomas, one from Uganda, and one from Kenya. The food was as diverse and entertaining as the company.

The other lady was an only child, an unmarried world traveler. When she found out that one of her favorite tour friends just so happened to be my single Aunt, she decided to "adopt" me. Over our years of friendship we visited many high-end, well regarded restaurants. An authentic French prix-fix restaurant in Vermilion (still there, under a new owner, with a bit of a different flair), an old prohibition speak-eat that was converted to an upscale food selection, and many diverse and excellent offerings of nationality foods. This, mind you, was in the 1970s. Greater Cleveland is now getting the love it deserves for excellent food no one but the locals knew about.

Don't even get me started on Chicago. Never lived there, visited it only once, but it has had a reputation for being a foodie haunt for decades.

Whenif we ever get back to OH, you and Kayelle must put a visit to northeast Ohio on your calendar. Once I reacquaint myself with the lay of the land and have a chance to explore some of the new offerings, I would love to take you on an eating tour so you could eat your words. Literally.
