Re: How would you distinguish art from abstract art?

non-abstract art is like a novel or a short story -- you can place it in reality. Abstract art is like music -- it speaks to you but you don't know how or via what inner senses.

Re: Can women judge beauty the same way men do and vice-versa?

Re: Genealogy

I didn't know that the genealogy sites had anything to do with Mormons. I haven't done a DNA taste but I've fooled around on Ancestry.com a bit. I haven't found anything disappointing so far. I've only done my dad's side so far. I found out that we're related to one of the founders of the Commonweal...
