    I used to have a cat that when I had a bbq I would get a slice of bell pepper chilli and rub it on some meat and he would eat it thinking it was the meat. Give him the same thing without rubbing it on the meat and he would look at you like you were stupid.

    Cats are funny like that. I need to try that little trick.

    I have two who have their own little door exiting from the laundry room. Sometimes they will go to their door, put their nose out a bit and then walk to a 'human' door and wait. Then, if they don't like the weather out that door they will go to the third door for a look see. This happens particularly when there is snow, wind or rain.

    That's "turian". May I suggest we also write the name in transliterated Thai (or karaoke Thai) for those who cannot read Thai script. :-)

    Marie, I believe it's Durian. The sound in Thai being somewhere between d & t (to my ear anyway).

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    At the time I first went to Thailand I had never had fresh pineapple. It just wasn't available in places I had lived. Still, it was my favorite fruit and even canned it was considered exotic and expensive. I never had enough. Thailand was pineapple heaven! And all those other fruits to become acquainted with? Paradise!

    So, when I tasted durian and didn't care for it, I just shrugged my shoulders (metaphorically, of course) and went on munching all those other delicious fruits.

    Yes Marie when I say it, it does have a t sound to it, but when I spell it (whoops I didn't see that I mispelled it lol) it's durian. That's how I've always seen it when it's packaged since it's hard to get fresh ones here. I'm tempted to go to the Asian store and go pick some up talking about it now!

    I had to ask a native Thai speaker for clarification. Yes, it's Turian- T as in Time, not T as in Star. That's probably what you're trying to say, too. My Thai tutor called it "explosive T". :-)
