I have been on one music forum for several years that is so 'milk-toast' that it is unbelievable. But if you express almost any opinion that is not at least 90% inline with everyone else, you are immediately chastised and threatened to be removed from the forum. As a result, everyone sits around talking about how nice the music is and how nice everyone else is and how nice the conversation is and how nice it is to be a part of such a nice group and how nice...etc., etc., etc.

And speaking of Okra, I used to be the pianist/organist for the MISS OKRA FESTIVAL
in Bells, Tennessee, the okra capital of the world. A large vegetable packing plant is in Bells. You may have seen PictSweet frozen vegetables
in the grocery store. Originally the company was called WinterGarden
For over 30 years, they had the Okra Festival in Bells, Tn., complete with rides, okra recipe contests and the Miss Okra Pageant. The Miss Okra winner went on to the Miss Tennessee pageant. Four Miss Okra winners became Miss Tennessee over the years. Here is a link to Miss Okra!!
And besides that, if you don't eat all your okra, you might miss the next rapture!!
