    That was very well written!

    But I’m not going to touch a discussion over the Lancasters, Plantagenets, Tudors, York, and others because we can’t even settle the war between Miracle Whip and Helmann’s.Report

    I’m not sure how good it is to be connected to one’s history.

    I know that I’m not connected to mine, particularly. My sister is connected to hers… and she has kids (and the only reason she doesn’t have more kids is that the doctors made her stop having them).

    I don’t have any.

    I wonder, were I connected to my history, if I’d want to have them.

    And I wonder about what conclusions I’d reach from that.

    Probably too small a sample size.Report

    A very long time ago..30 years ago…i loved cooking and wanted to be a chef and work in kitchens. Then I realized that the 1) the probability that I would be the next Gordon Ramsey was very low and I’d likely toil for little reward in kitchens for no success. 2) it would ruin me for cooking for myself. I choose to purse a more financially stable profession and realize my passions on my own time.Report
