Gene Simmons - a lesson in history

I never would have thought that an episode of Gene Simmons - Family Jewels would have brought me to tears.  But I have to say, if you have never seen the episode where he and Shannon Tweed visit Amsterdam, I would highly recommend that you watch it.

In it you learn that Gene was born in Israel, to Jewish parents.  I don't want to spoil it if you get the chance to see this episode, but I WILL tell you that his visit to the Anne Frank house was so emotional that it made me cry.

It's true.  Some of our parents and grandparents represent history that should not be forgotten.  Watch it if you can.

I am finally getting around to watching Julie and Julia (Meryl Streep as Julia Childs - amazing!), and all I can say is, I'm suddenly hungry and I MISS French cooking.  And I don't mean French Fries, or the odd French item you may have had in a restaurant.  I mean the down-to-earth, eating at a French person's kitchen French cooking.  I miss the meals that took 3 hours to eat, with their courses separated by fresh sorbets and complimented by fine wines.  And as I can't afford to fly back there anytime soon, perhaps I'll just have to settle for cooking up a Beef Bourginoine and cracking open a nice Merlot..........
