i LOVED the kinks. ray and dave davies (davis, to americans) were geniuses.

celluloid heroes, superman, lola, give the people what they want,... so many great tunes.


although, i heard it was a guy from manchester who inspired their song "art lover".

any relation, harry?

if you haven't recently tom,listen to "waterloo sunset"....some of the most poignant lyrics ever written & no other voice could have delivered that song other than ray davi(e)s imho.
art lover? relation?not from round here originally...from north wales,look you now,lovely boy,is it that you mrs jones,blaenau ffestiniog mountain railway,dai the death,isn't it....me!
lot of debate has raged about the lyrics of that one as you can imagine tom.....painter or something else that begins with a "P"....

I only had an hour of battery life at the farm--forgot my power supply so am just now getting caught up here. It seems to me we often go "off topic." In a way, it reminds me of conversations I have with friends...we start on one topic and then oops, something s/one says brings something else to mind. I personally love how DC threads start and then move to other thoughts and come back to the subject several posts later. The other nice thing about DC is that if a thread doesn't interest you, you can unsub to it (personally, no offense intended, but I did that with all the hoopala re: July 4th--not celebrated where I live so I didn't follow the thread, checked it off and on, but didn't sub to it).

Having said all that, I would hope that fellow DCers would be tolerant of these little sidetrips (kinda like taking the scenic route on a road trip) and not complain to the mods or owners about such diversions. The title of the forum is "discuss cooking" and discussions often do go off track...such is the nature of human communication. I love the circuitous ways that we return to the topic. And, this thread has gone on for what--22 pages? It would be hard for it not to have diverged many times. We diverge when the thread is only 4 pages long! I also love how people feel they can say what they think without fear of censorship.

I personally do a lot of chopping, grating, etc. I have my favorite tools--for example, I love my mezzaluna (for chopping herbs). I use it in my great aunt's wooden salad bowl. Come to think of it, the mezzaluna is the only knife in the house that always has a knife guard on it when stored. It is taking me a bit of practice to get the hang of using it efficiently--so far, I only use it for herbs. I think there are other uses for it--anyone?
