Well, if you want a fortifying tea, it would be Masala Tea. That's what's drunk by those who live in Kashmir in the chilly North of India. Lots of various spices, including pepper and ginger, Assam and Darjeeling tea, pine nuts, cream boiled together, with sugar added and strained. It'll put hair on your chest. Unfortunately hair all over my body is something I don't really want. :wink: :lol:


I've recently become acquainted with this beverage at a local Indian restaurant I frequent for lunch with a coworker. The first time we tried it, we said it was good but a little weak. So they said, "Oh, you want it stronger?" and made us another pot that knocked our socks off. Good stuff!

I think I speak for all of us when I say I simply LOVE your blanket insults :mrgreen: . How proud you must be of yourself.


Thanks, but it's not a very big blanket really. Out of the 23930 members here, it just fits over a special cozy half dozen or so.

And a pleasant fit it is! Image

Years ago I was up a pole replacing a line amp. My boss pulled up behind my van, and began snooping around. He was sniffing for pot or beer. I said, "Looking for something? The pot's in my pocket!"

He then reached into the van and turned on my tape player...

"...till it squirts, squirts, squirts, squirts...viola! Don't get no jism on that sofa, sofa..."

Within the week, I was looking for another job. I should have stuck closer to church-oriented social activities...


Now, that's funny!

I like this one myself:

I think it's really tragic when people get serious about stuff. It's such an absurdity to take anything really serious ... I make an honest attempt not to take anything seriously: I worked that attitude out about the time I was eighteen, I mean, what does it all mean when you get right down to it, what's the story here? Being alive is so weird.

Good one!

Back to tea...did you know that adding sugar to a cup of it while the bags still in it stops the brewing process? And, I heard, you shouldn't add boiling water but almost boiling water.
I must put away 3 liters of decaf tea (hot) a day. It's that or NUTHIN. I forget to drink fluids. Plus, I don't smoke or eat as much when I drink tea.

Hey, Diva Zappa must be a " Bland-Bandwagoneer". She loves tea!
Her and 2/3 the Earths population :D

Green tea is meant to be really good for your system. I bought some, but have never opened it haha! Im trying to convince myself that looking at it works just as well as drinking it. I'm afraid it's Twinings English Breakfast Tea all the way for me! Bloody nice it is...and coffee, of course. :lol:

Luckily I have never run across anyone in my life who had a predjudice against Frank's music. For some time I kept it strictly to myself. My mom and I had a bit of a talk about him before she died. I told her some general things, there is only so far you can go in a situation like that, but at least she knew the reason I liked him was for the awesome music he created and because I am admired him for being the hard-working entrepeneur that he was. An interest in music is something I share with several members of my family, including her, although I think my tastes are a bit more eclectic than theirs.

Sadly, I know a bunch. A guy in my band asked me for some recommendations, as he said he'd "missed the whole Zappa thing and wanted to check it out." So I made a couple of collections for him. His response to those cds was that Frank must have been a drug user to come up with all that shit. Then he labeled the music novelty songs. Turns out, he went to such reputable places as Rolling Stone for his FZ info.... The myths continue. :x

There still remain two hard, fast schools of thought regarding Frank Zappa: 1) A buffoon who wasted whatever talent he had on silly comedy bits that weren't all that funny to begin with. "How much mileage can you get out of 'yellow snow' and 'Valley girls'?" 2) A vulgar, woman-hating, contemptible bastard who made a career out of common dirty jokes. "What kind of talent can anyone have who wrote songs he got inspired to write reading off men's room walls?"

Those haven't changed and they're both the opinions of people who know better than to listen to three minutes of one Zappa song.
