Circumsision in the News
Because I try to provide content of interest to the readers I felt a need to make this post for the one who is interested in circumsision. Apparently in the Phillipines boys generally get circumsised when school is in recess. The Phillipines are a poor nation and it is not always done by professionals. In order to help, some doctors gave free circumsisions to boys over 9 age at a circumsision party. One of the boys exclaimed that now he was a man.
Circumsision Party in the Phillipines
I have no idea how Phillipinoes view circumsision. I find it interesting that the boys had to all be over 9 years old, they knew what they were getting into. They apparently view it as a right of passage. Don't know how I feel about that, not really into social pressure for rights of passages.
On a side note, I decided to make tri-tip as my first oven cooked meal in my new apartment. I made a rub and a marinade from what I had lying around. My life continues to find it's new normal, I don't know if that is good or bad. I think for the moment it is good, I need to have my quiet time.
Oh, the picture. I searched for "beautiful" and it came up, the title is beautiful eyes, no idea who it is or who took the picture. Just thought I would post it.
