Do you  have a favorite holiday cookie?

She also has a television show, but is more low key, I think than some of the over the top celebrity chefs.

No, of course.  As usual, you add things which are just not there.  I didn't say better than the originals.

Here you go thardy...you clearly said easier and better in your post.  Unless you would like to claim that coffee table book of photos is the original of the sistine chapel?  I mean stranger things have been claimed about the Vatican before...

Hmm, if I thought that, then I wouldn't have gone to the Sistine Chapel  Anyway, my comment to Jamblessed was about something you couldn't know.  Like Bord agreed, beingin the Chapel is a bit crowded.  Maybe you'll go there someday.

This isn't about what's better or who's right ... it's about the absurdity of debating yourself.

YOU said: "Not worth the visit unless you're determined to "meet" this Pope.   It's much easier and better to get a coffee table book with great photos of the sistine chapel ceiling up close."

Then you turned around and said: "Has anyone here said a coffee table book is better than the original??"
