Tea Ceremony

The idea of them anyway .. never seem to have the time.

Love the idea of a tea ceremony like in Japan ..

I just boil kettle and pour over teabag in a mug.  

Ready in seconds  .. and not special at all

Not all scientists share your view, b!<br />

But, indeed, life is good.

come. come now ladies. radiation sickness killed people at Hiroshima but radiation also heals cancer patients. Microwaves were used in pres Reagan's Space War programme, but it is also use to send messages around the globe and to cook things.<br />
<br />
it is not unsafe. well if you remove the door and operate it, then you will get radiation burns. have you seen those dishes with the flat, white front screens on the telecommunications towers. Those too are microwave dishes and they bring the TV signal to you.<br />
<br />
It's not so bad. <br />
<br />
there are a few things that you should not cook in a microwave. otherwise, life is good.<br />

Some nutritionists feel they ruin the nutritional value of food.<br />
<br />
My scientist husband feels they are unsafe.<br />
<br />
My spiritual nature asks me why we are in such desperate haste!<br />
<br />
Having never had one, I don't miss it either.

I had one ( didn't buy it .. it was a Xmas present I didn't ask for) a few years ago.<br />
<br />
One evening I put in a bag of beans and herbs to heat up (for my bacK), left it in too long and it exploded! The smell was dreadful.<BR><BR>Threw out the microwave and not had one since .. dont miss it at all

I don't own a microwave. Never have.

Hmmm .. I think I am overtired <BR><BR>Must be off to bed ..

That is probably the healthiest attitude MissYoo but i harken back to the olden days when we had scrubbing brushes and sang whilst we scrubbed!

Haha ... On holidays overseas my Grandmother used to take an electric prod thing that she put in mug of water to boil it.<BR><BR>She didn't believe a nice cup of 'English' tea could be made abroad!

The mindfulness of ceremony is a wonderful thing. I wish I took the time, too.<br />
<br />
At least you boil the kettle instead of heating the mug of water in the microwave as I've seen some do!
