I listened to Evensong at my cathedral today and several times heard the priest say "Lettuce Spray. Now is this an organic of a non-organic spray. Don't you think that we should be told?

I hope it is a non-aerosol spray. Need to protect the ozone you know. What good would it do us to eat healthy salads only to die from the hole in ozone layer.

I'd assume that it IS an organic of a non-organic spray, yes; but is the liquid that flies off it holy? Has it been blessed directly or is it expected to absorb religious ambience as it drifts with abandon throughout the Church? And what causes the spray effect in the first place? Is it divine intervention? Is it the salival lisp of God himself or a man induced dramatic effect triggered to entrance the masses? Is it a form of vegetable stigmata? Will the calories of said spray make us fat? So many questions Mr Pike, so many questions.....

Alas I cannot answer them James. But stand fast in your belief of Divine Intervention and may Satan's slugs and snails pass you by.

Hi P1key! I don't know but I think if it's said in a Cathedral then it's probably non-organic, it's probably something that they use on all the naughty little boys that they have running around getting into mischief!

Don't I know it P1key!! Seems like I come in contact with naughty boys constantly! I am Especially plagued with one in particular! One of these days I'm going to get my hands on him, give him a good spanking or two, teach him a lesson and train him how to be good!!

We definitely have a right to be informed of pesticides, fungicides, bromides and homicides. Even priests have accountability for toxicity. Nobody is immune. Godliness is not next to poisonessness.

ROFLMAO!!! "Lettuce Spray"?! I hear the stuff works pretty well on all sorts of problem areas, especially where 2 or more people are gathered together to use it. Helps with everything from gardening failure, to personal troubles, to financial dilemmas, to global brotherhood. I'd be willing to use the stuff myself, but every time I find a seemingly good place to get "Lettuce Spray", I'm given an odd look and made to feel unwelcome! Ah, well. Hope your variety is easier to obtain than mine! I have found a particular kind that I prefer, Lettuce Spray 2012. I'm told it contains a special flame-retardant ingredient, which is evidently something I'm going to need. If you need any of this new kind, just let me know. My former church gives it away in overabundance!

What I like about churches is how they all welcome comers new and old. They don't have cliques neither do they condemn; they are universally tolerant and follow the simple creed of turning the other cheek. Isn't religion wonderful.

Hi p1ke, It's been a long time since I've answered one of your discussions. Actually, I don't answer many 'at all' anymore. I'm feeling a bit down at the moment, so when I read this, it did lift my spirits. LOL I don't know how you come up with these gems, but they are a breath of fresh air. Thanks. By the way, I'm sure 'they' must use organic spray, don't you think? Take care.

I think I could do with some of that spray to keep the slugs at bay. They should have definitely told us. Enjoying the bank holiday weekend ?

I don't think it's spray you put on the lettuce, I think it's kind of a bouquet of lettuce.......a lettuce spray, like the ones a (rabbit) bride might carry down the isle. ;P

A lettuce Spray - a bouquet of spring lettuce Dory. I like that idea.

Well, all ya gotta do, my dear, is ask someone and they will surely tell you. I haven't a clue, as 'church' just isn't my thing. I'm more nature based. *grins* just a minute.............. OMG! YOU GOT ME! Good one. "Let us pray", ha ha ha. Very funny.

I am not really sre what that means. You mean something to spray the lettuce with to keep bugs away or do you mean a spray made out of lettuce. Sorry I am not a great gardner, so I don't know a lot about the green ways of gardening. I wish I could help more.
