I like the old school idea of wholesomeness much more. What's wholesome for others..home made dinner? Playing with a ball? Crafting with kids? Why is it even used with non food related stuff, it is confusing.
Poll?

Lol.

This place is overpolled. Is Switzerland a wholesome country..are we wholesome people, having wholesome fun & food here?

I am just musing. I will go home and make wholesome garam masala lentils.

Fauvism? Very awesome. Wholesome art! Just saw some Matisse at the Smithsonian.

And, I bet eating truffes makes one feel noble and aristocratic. I've never tried them.

I've had them on fresh pasta with a little bit of butter, made on a camping stove at a campsite in the South of France, and it made me feel like a king.

Re: Word of Today

Ha! I was teaching V. Woolf for IB not long ago, loved the whole scene! Was just thinking about it today, since I have various groups (paint group, study gr., knitting gr.) but we have never named any..That"s a good word, ST!

That eyecandy of painting you posted is interesting..always good to have visuals for threads dealing with lexical stuff, sound bites, smells, colors.

How lovely: butter, camp stove, campsite and southern France..already winning, even before they get truffes added. Love them all.

Be very careful about referring to fruit preservatives. You may fall into a 'false friend' trap here, resulting for instance in a shop girl tittering uncontrollably behind her hand in response to an otherwise perfectly innocent/decent request.

Poppycock!

Obviously fruit preserves. Why else would old people have wrinkles?
