  2. Julia Childs loved cooking and also cats- well her husband also. ๐Ÿ™‚ She seemed to be a “real person” on her TV shows. I read that once she dropped a raw chicken on the floor, picked it up and continued on with the show. Very funny. Have no idea if that is a true story or not. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I saw the movie Julia and Julia, it was great.

  4. I still only eat ๐Ÿ˜‰
