Good manners for you

Good manners for you

How are you dear Guests in virtual Cafe WIM? How are you living as you do in Le Canada?

Winters here don't have a great ending, Wim. Coming from Holland, you noticed that too  over the years that you are here.

 I get the kids in their rain boots and by the time they do that on their own, I go to work. In a land as wide and total nature, there are other things to see then melting snow. "Logical Positivism." Once you're hooked you find that there is no other side.

What other side would that be?

Philosophy.   Best thing, type in Ayer, or Carnap, or Feigl, or Passmore(Australia) in the weekend. Google connects.  I digress.  I wonder if I can talk about the body, your body.

Wim, once you are in a real cafe like this, virtual or bricks and mortar this is part of the sphere that you tried to mix into the harsh realities of life.  We appriciate that. You feel that we can have Spring with snow in it without any philosophical crutch?

Philosophical is an armslenghth observation that doesn't move the sludge, yet by logical positivism the concept of the shovel comes to mind and its realization is a helpful tool. Since we are not likely to nail a Universal Truth, we keel-over, quite content with implementation. 

Are you pleased with that?

No, I like the advances (in Astronomy) we can make. The metaphysical study is hard to understand and abstract and leads to the study of epistomology and you all get me further from what really matters now we are at a food place:  the body.

What kind of body. Like your body of work "Cafe WIM, a touch-of-Dutch" and the sculpting of the sphere with cigar smoke swirling under the 14 feet high ceiling, the palm trees, the Italian marble tables, topped with fresh flower bushes, the Aquaroc France glass plates, the Parisian-style bikini kiosk, the displays of local fine art everywhere on Sunday shows.....??

Yes, particularly what I hope that came out of it: You all and you separately: bright people that move a body around, supremely independent and content getting into real and virtual cafes at will. Overall unaware of what is under the chin.

We are very aware of what is under our double chin, a too content and too round body. Are you trying to get us to slim-down, maybe?

My subject, ever since the tutelage of my well-informed millionare Mother is MANNERS. The beginning of all wisdom is to know yourself. I suggest that all of us respect our body, the mysterious huge tool of which we know nothing where it came from or where it is going.

What did she say?

Build a good relation. Apply GOOD MANNERS for YOU.  If there is anything a bit off, anything that is somewhat not what it should be: TALK to the TISSUE.

In the German language it is called: "EINE FREUNDLIGE BEJEGENUNG" : a gentle attention.

That is what helps the spot of an otherwise entirely well-tuned body. Once you have that, will the medicine have more effect. Nothing is in the way of medicine to work. Because there is no effect from smoking, drinking, long sitting, all matter of drugs, the medicine that is applied can be freely effective. You go back to life with sun, air, blue skies above.

How do you get that well-tuned body? 

A sober lifestyle. That gradually builds a fortified immunity, which is the stuff scientists  want to improve on until they find a way to live to be 1000...or more. For now we can fully enjoy life on Earth for 110 years, strong and firm to boot. A 100 to 110 age-group is now achievable.

My Millionaire Mother said, "you are alive. a whole body to enjoy.  DO NOT PESTER that gift by toying with it. Read books on what people did who did toy with it. Evaluate the outcome. Not a good thing comes out of it. Read other people's sorry tales and learn not to follow it."

You mean living saintly is the answer?

Simply Good Manners in the answer to that huge gift: the body. A millionaire's son has a hard life. Can Nico, the chauffeur bring me to school? It is too far away.  Answer, you walk. You go through a regimen of hardening the body, take-on challenges in sports. Do the things that I listed in "YOU ON TOP." That is a little OVER the top but it gives some possiblities.

Thanks for sharing your Mothers' wisdom. Is there more ..?

Mothers are what mother means: vast resource. Lesson One: when you get into a room with people, you bow to the oldest woman there FIRST !!! and you go far in this world. Good luck.

Thanks Wim. Great chat. By the way, you mentioned that we are in a food place. Do you have some cafe recipes, or your higher age recipes for streamlining our double chin and body?

YES, What Cafe WIM brought to your table and "Wim's private menu" is coming up next. For that I invite you to make a donation no less than twenty dollars for Sober LIVING.

The value is no less than twenty dollars Cdn, send out by you via Internet e-Transfer and by letting me know the answer to the "Resource" slot:  For instance 'Bradford', my street-name.

Internet e-Transfer is easy to find in the left column of your bank. Click that. Rest follows. Thanks in Advance, from Wim

Hello. I too would love a copy of the book. I spent many a happy afternoon and evening at Wim in my teens. It was a home away from home.
