    How do they know?

    Today I was at Bumrungrad and there were lots of ladies completely covered in black. All you could see was the white of their eyes. A little kid came up and sat next to his mother. How did he know she was his mother?

    A paddock full of sheep and lambs. How do the lambs know who is the mother?

    There must be other examples out there.

    The way she sits and holds herself.

    Yea, Its brilliant, In a shopping centre completly populated by short brown people with black hair I can say to my kids where is Mum? and they can pick her out.
    They tell me "mum is the one holding your hand".
    I just find the sensory Maternal thing just amazing.
    There canít be good living where there is not good drinking

    I went to Bumrungrad at the weekend. Good service. It oulwd be quite funny to send panhunger or kid there they would go inot somekind of racial frenzy.

    People have phremones just like animals do, that give off an odour that their offspring can pick up. It is what can attract mates together too.

    Kids can get it wrong though.
    Recently in a very crowded shopping centre a little boy, about 4 years old grabbed my hand and called me "Papi" (I'm in Germany).
    Not only was I not his daddy, I must have been the only non-German in the centre.
    Anyway, I figured correctly if we sat in one place near the information his mother would soon show up in a panic, which she did.
    She told me I had an uncanny resemblance to her ex husband, the father of the boy.
    So it must be recognition by sight too.
    Footnote, yes - I have her telephone number.
