It wasn't smiley - wow

I was quite highly praised for the casserole with red deer meat, onions, carrots, garlic, laurel leaves, salt, game stock and smiley - redwine which had been simmering for five and a half hours and was served with a mix of mashed potatoes, celery root and carrots and garnished with cranberries cooked in syrup smiley - droolsmiley - droolsmiley - drool

But while we ate we watched our best smiley - football team losing to an Italian team in a group game in the Champions League - and that was not good news of course smiley - erm

But then we had a traditional smiley - apple dessert with macroons and whipped cream, smiley - coffee and calvados (brandy made from smiley - applesmiley - apple ) and forgot everything about smiley - footballsmiley - oksmiley - biggrin

The oracle eats his supper dutifully but not enthusiastically.

But dessert is macaroons with whipped cream. Also chocolate chip cookies and apple pie.

Some philosophers say that you should eat dessert first.

Some philosophers say that you should live in the moment.

The oracle believes in listening politely to philosophers but then making up his own mind.

If it's a nice moment, it's well worth living in. If it's not, there's a limit to how much you should put up with it.smiley - steam Okay, that's probably not an Eastern approach, but the oracle doesn't give two figs. Think about it: if Eastern philosophy and lifestyle are so superior, why is so much of East Asia overcrowded, full of unbreathable air, and grateful for small portions of rice three times a day, while the West -- well, we know what the West has given to the world -- besides Trump, that is. smiley - biggrin

But to be fair, it's all one world, and the oracle would like to pick the best from wherever it may be found. smiley - zen.

Verse 8

Behold, the Oracle predicts a period of light, followed by a period of darkness. Then light again, then darkness. This is a time of year when, for some unexplained reason, the light lasts for a shorter tme than the darkness. Unless you are talking about the lights in your house.

Which you probably aren't doing, but the oracle will natter on anyway. Isn't it great to be an oracle?

I thought so!

Oops, that is the oracle thinks so.
