I was reading in Luke 10 when verse 8 raised itself – “And whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat what is set before you:”…….

I began thinking that a blogspot is something of a city; it is a place where people share the world as they see it. They prepare, as it were, a meal for visitors that are invited to come in. When people visit a blog they peruse the fare served up and may find it quite different from ‘Mom’s’ cooking. Sometimes we look at this strange meal with a curious and reserved attitude. Sometimes we poke the food, turn it over, examine it on all sides and make sure that it is safe for consumption.
Of course we try and do this as discreetly as possible but if the meal is from a different culture or kitchen than we are used to, we can be reluctant and may but nibble at first. Or, we may be convinced that it is contaminated and leave the home, carefully cleaning our shoes so we don’t carry any contaminated crumb off with us.

Now if you came to Oregon and were to eat fresh Salmon, which is plentiful here, I would warn you to watch for bones, Salmon have many. But they are delicious.
Most folks are familiar with meat and the caution required to avoid bones, and have no fear. But there are some that never eat fish for fear of dying from swallowing a bone; those I strongly caution because I serve lots of Salmon here.

Ha! Very good.

I love Salmon, especially when filleted by an expert.

Very informative post!

I like all fish but not with bones.

Have a nice feast on Salmon :)

Hi Donna and Joseph,
Thanks for your comments and I hope you both have a nice Thanksgiving. Although, you probably don't celebrate Thanksgiving in the same fashion do you Joseph? Or do you have a like holiday?
God bless,

Hi Fred :)

We are living in a country with an overwhelming Hindu majority. Chriatians just form 3% of the total population. Even Christians don't celebrate Thanksgiving day. We have different holidays. Even Christmas and Good Friday are not national holidays.

Wish you and your family Happy Thanksgiving Holiday.

Best wishes :)
