Hello A! Fra my experience, you'd be better off getting Rose's Christmas Cookies(all the recipes are good, at any time of the year), by Rose Levy Beranbaum, or maybe THe Bakers Dozen Cookbook. There are lots of cookie cookbooks out there. See what is available in your local used bookstore. Once again, this is my opinion only.

Kontakte, this is not who you seem to think it is. Can we give people the benefit of the doubt, at least until he/she starts spouting "Follow your Passion" and repeating him/herself repeating him/herself repeating him/herself repeating him/herself repeating him/herself?

I'm not american, not even english, but I understand rather well this language.Can't tell exactly why, but as a "foreigner" myself, I didn't like your post or, at least the way you said what you said. Does it make a difference who "a" is? His/her nationality? He/she asked for help, that's all. Do you think he or she wouldn't read your post, or wouldn't understand it?

Cecilia, there was no ill will intended in Tracy's post. She was admonishing me for jumping to conclusions about the identity of a. It had nothing to do with his/her country of origin.

Cecilia, the "follow your passion" comment refers to another poster on this board (who hasn't been here in a while) who was quite irritating to many folks here. Some people seem to think that "a" is that person, but there is no evidence to support that.


I was suggesting that Kontakte 66 give "a" the benefit of the doubt and treat his/her request with respect, as we would any other request, and not to castigate "a" for being someone else, who he/she most likely is not.


I'm sorry if it was unclear, I meant no offense! :-)

I agree. Most likely. But I can also see how the suspicion might arise.

As always, I was the perfect gentleman and answered the question to the best of my knowledge. There wasn't a dribble of castigation in my reply.

I was relieved to see that I was not the only one who thougt it was a reincarnation!   This time, I decided not to analyze and sympathize about deafness nor calculate the forsaken encouragement (not 'foreigness') but noted that Kontakte was indeed polite.  Those who responded jumped to other anti-foreign conclusions.  For the "foreign" among the readers, this is an incredible accepting group who would welcome the expertise of someone "foreign."   Most of us are just a few generations away from the "foreign" and still wishing we had our grandmothers recipies "in hand." and LOVE to have experts on national traditional cooking and ingredients!  So, welcome to "a."  So, tell us some Thai stuff!!!

I must say, the subtext of this whole thread sailed right by me. I've been working way too hard, but now I'm on vacation. <g>

Jane, you have your text set somehow so that it is miniscule compared to most of the others' posts (Biscuit's read the same way.). It shows up in about 6 point font on my screen-makes it impossible to read what you are saying.

Not to worry, Marie-Louise...


 


I am clueless... first I thought I should raise my hands in defense of poor foreigners, but later on I decided that "when you have no idea what they are talking about, shut up and click on another thread"...

Hold the phone there, Jane Rose. Are you saying that my reply was "anti-foreign"? If it was anti-anything, my reply was anti-Afra, NOT "anti-foreign."


To reiterate:
I was suggesting that everyone take a deep breath and let "a" post, without immediately assuming she was Afra. My original post pointed out that "a" was a non-native English speaker because it was further evidence that she was NOT Afra, as Afra demonstrates remarkable capabilities with the English language. It was absolutely not intended to denigrate "a" in any way, and I apologized and edited my initial post to remove the comment once I realized it had been misconstrued.


Anyone who lives in the US who is not Native American has no right to be "anti-foreign" in any way, since we're all "foreign."

The "Native Americans'" ancestors came here from somewhere else, just like my ancestors did. I was born here. My parents were born here. How many generations does it take to be considered 'native'? Or are my descendants forever debarred from being 'native' because my ancestors didn't make it until after the beginning of written history?

Oh for the love of all that is good and holy, can I make a comment in my own defense without being taken to task on every single posted letter?


All I want to do is respond to a person who has insinuated that I am somehow "anti-foreign." I'm not anti-foreign. If I were, I'd have to be anti-everyone-in-the-whole-freaking country (if not the continent), because on some level, we are all (mostly) "foreign."


I don't give a rat's ear (thanks Jean) about what does or does not constitute "Native." I'm not posting on this thread to find that out.


Is that OK with you?

I'm sorry. I went back and read my post again, and saw that it could quite reasonably be taken as a reprimand, which is not what I intended at all. Native American is one of my hot buttons, so I just teed off on it without considering the context of what you were trying to say. That kind of thoughtlessness may be a worse offense than the actual tone of what I wrote.

It's annoying when an attempt at concialiation draws another attack, and doubly annoying when the attack turns on an issue that's really peripheral to the point you are trying to make. I apologize for subjecting you to that double annoyance, however unintentionally.

No problem, I just got my knickers in a twist. Sorry I lashed out at you! Plainly I need to go back to bed and pretend this day never happened... or take the day off and go hiking.

Yikes, Tracy, no, I was not even responding to your post, but to K-66 and the fact that anyone even thought that foreignness would be an issue here.  Even though I have read and re-read the entire thread, I can't see where I was jumpin' on you.  I think the first use of"foreigners" was by Cecilia and I just was being general about how folks here would NOT be prejudiced. I came out from under my lurking rock because I was amazed that someone else at least fleetingly thought it was a revisit.  It seems as if everyone IS being charming-- responding and being friendly and helpful. 


When I read in Breaktime and see Helen W's posts, however, and note her pet, Afra, has pups, and I read it in purple, ......sorry, but it is just so within her trolling capabilities just to be out there pushing buttons.  Needless to say, everyone who responds sincerely has stayed above the fray.  Didn't ever mean to offend anyone.  Again, my response, you may note, was to K-66.  As a lurker, I have ventured to comment, not criticize.  I like this bunch too much.  THIS is why I must stick to "read only." 


Have a great day!

You mean that Afra is another incarnation of Helen?? Well, stands to reason. Hmm. She does need to get a life.

Note HWells used to be Helen somebody and is AKA Colleen and has the dog, Afra.


Gimme a break.  


Hi Jean, just saw your post, too.  Yes, I think it is one of the many incarnations of Colleen/Helen/Hell-on-Wheels, the former banned, but back again gal.  She is bright, does a LOT of fun manipulations with languages, see post in Breaktime, and has the energy to do this just to "stir the pot."

Hmmm, then I wonder who was the chick Jane Dough met in a McD's? Might explain "Afra's" lack of interest at that meeting. Heck, maybe Jane D is also splintergroupie/HW/etc.

19786.106  See this post in Tavern from earlier this month where H.Wells SAYS she is Splintergroupie!   I wasn't sure while reading this if it was true or a hijack of identity just to get Splinter going..... but, again, purple (I know, I know, anybody can do purple... ) and the multiple character thing.  I am usually reading these early AM, or late at night on Breaktime thinking about how to fix my toilet or should I REALLY call a plumber, and then the Tavern distracts me.  The gal has a history and I personally think its Troll Time.  However, again, lurkers should not be trouble makers. If the new a is REAL, no harm done, advice give, books bought, cookies eaten!!!    slurp...

Thanks Jane! I saw that post, and had wondered prior to that because of something she said abt who could and who could not change a poster's (H's) name. Waaaay too much time on her hands . . . and a psycho to boot.

If I'm not mistaken, splintergroupie lives in Canada. Afra is not far from the border. The ignore button was an option by the time Helen wheeled over here, so I have no idea where she lives.

I thought Splinter lived in California?  not meaning to put her back in your neck of the woods, but didn't she post her website once?  I could have sworn she was in CA?

Good guess, but I don't think so. I never looked at her website, though.
