What is Culture for the Non-Cultured?

Ever feel that although you live in or around New York City, you do not
take advantage of all that culture, that art, that theater, that ethnic
food, right in your own backyard? Culture for the Non-Cultured
(http://culturecircle.meetup.com/3 /) is a meet-up group that strives to
go to those exotic restaurants, walking tours, museums, theater, etc.
that you may want to go to, but somehow never find the time. We have a
fun, laid-back atmosphere, and we commonly eat after (or during) our
events, because the best way to build a feeling of community in a
group, after all, is to gather around a table full of calories.

My step-sister has lived in Australia for over 40 years.  Her latest  
joke sent to me is this -

Question: "What's the difference between Australia and a pot of yoghurt?"


Answer: "The pot of yoghurt has a living culture"

My step-sister, Liz, her husband Barry and daughter Kylie are an
archetypal Strine family. With names like that what else could they be!
Howver, as Liz said when she sent me the joke, we shouldn't take
ourselves too seriously.  Barry is an orthodontist and when I innocently
asked him what was the difference between a dentist and an orthodontist
he said "about 20,000 dollars a year..."
 From what Liz tells me the Tasmanians and New Zealanders are the butt
of many Strine jokes.

Not sure if my last answer has gone or not (can't find it), but I
actually like this. Good thing most of us do know how to laugh at
ourselves.

How rude. :)

PS Bruce is not specially interested in the cricket, is he? We could
be in for an interesting Ashes series.

Bruce is most definitely NOT interested in the cricket <g>
Several years in the RAF (1959-73) gave me an aversion to all types of
sport as well as a very good grounding in how to avoid all forms of
excessive physical activity. But, proving the theory that unlikes
attract, my wife is a former WRAC physical training instructor;
something I gleefully point out to her when her back is playing up (and
she is therefore incapable of attacking me).

I have no interest in actually _playing_ sport myself, but do have it
on the TV as sort of background noise sometimes in the Summer.

The tennis is what I do enjoy watching, although some of the
men's matches are way too long.

Yup, my pinkie is in the air as I sip my tea, prior to spewing it all over
the keyboard.

I wish I could join you.  The American Folk Art Museum was a favorite of
mine when I was in New York.
