from Lawrence, Sunday PhiloMadrid meeting: Being nice to others + NEWS

Dear Friends,

This weekend we are discussing: Being nice to others.

Now, because I suggested the topic and did not write anything I must apologise for not being nice
about it.

Of course myth has it that nice people get trodden over and abused by more competitive people. That
might very well be the case with some people, but there is nothing to stop nice people from also
being smart. And smart people tend to win more times than anyone else!

In the meantime we have news from Raquel who has sent us the dates of some events she will be
singing as a soprano. I am also sending you the links to Ruel's essay on Death for last week's topic
and also links to his published works and books. And finally, we still have a lunch to organise.

Best Lawrence
News and details below

----Lunch at the Segoviano----
1) Last Sunday we discussed the possibility of organising a lunch at the centro and I asked Encarna
for details. However, we still have to organise the date so you can think about this lunch and find
a gap in your busy diary. I also have a pending appointment at the hospital and won't know the dates
until next week. What is sure is that we start lunch at 3:30pm and then start the meeting as usual.
In the meantime we can think about the menu:
-Starters (frituras variadas), Entrecot o Cochinillo con ensalada, Postre- cafe-bebida. 25 euros per
person.
-Alternative option 1: fish or vegetarian but you will have to speak to Encarna about this, I've got
her number so please ask me or her when you come to the meeting. 25 euros per person
-Alternative option 2: cochido completo (plus the extras above) 20 euros per person.
(Looking at the menu you might think this is a challenge to this week's subject, but I am assured
that the food is very good!!!)
