Cowboys and Indians - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Cowboys and Indians

    Three strangers strike up a conversation in the airport
    passenger lounge in Calgary, Alberta, while awaiting their
    respective flights.

    One is a native Indian from the Sarcee Reserve; another is a
    cowboy on his way to Lethbridge for a livestock auction.
    The third passenger is a fundamentalist Arab student, newly
    arrived at the University of Calgary from the Middle East .
    Their discussion drifts to their diverse cultures. Soon,
    the two Albertans learn that the Arab is a devout, radical
    Muslim and the conversation falls into an uneasy lull.

    The cowboy leans back in his chair, crosses his boots on a
    magazine table and tips his big sweat-stained hat forward
    over his face.

    The wind outside is blowing tumbleweeds around, and the old
    windsock is flapping, but still no plane comes.

    To break the silence, the Indian clears his throat and
    softly speaks:"At one time here, my people were many, but
    sadly, now we are few."

    The Muslim student raises an eyebrow and leans
    forward:"Once my people were few, he sneers, "and now we are
    many. Why do you suppose that is?"

    The Alberta cowboy shifts his toothpick to one side of his
    mouth and from the darkness beneath his Stetson says in a
    smooth drawl,

    "That's 'cause we ain't played Cowboys and Muslims yet . . .
    but I do believe it's a-comin'.."
