I am not going to opine much on political stuff because I find paying much attention to the ugliness makes me ill. I do suggest that you read one woman's opinion of Sarah Palin as published on Desert's Child. She lives in Wasilla, AK and has known Palin since 1992.
The boys were and still are gathered in the outdoor cathouse where they eat. This is how it started. Dudie was where he eats. Jellico was on the block thinking of going above to see his reluctant girlfriend Tim. Tommie approached carefully singing all the way. Unfortunately by the time I got the camera, he was quiet and settled here. I stuck the camera out the door in the rain to take this photo. Jellico eventually went above. There the three boys stayed while I tried unsuccessfully to photo them using the same technique. It's hard to aim when you can't see the little screen.
Sitting in front of me in line at a fast food joint today was a jeep with no cover or windows and only one occupant. The driver was obviously on the phone via bluetooth because I could see the ear piece and hear him. What made me laugh out loud was his gesturing with both hands as if he were conversing in person.
A faithful reader of Dr. Christian Troll's blog GAFCON asked the difference between [sic] The Southern Cone, The Global South and GAFCON. Fr. Christian provides a most enlightening explanation of the geography involved here. I especially appreciate the comment that in Christ there is no East or West. That certainly makes it all much easier to understand.
Update: Fr. Christian has now addressed the East-West issue. Just read his entire blog. Be careful, however, to keep all liquids and other corrupting substances away from the computer keyboard when you do.
Group Announces Unity Event for Pittsburgh Episcopal Diocese
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania — September 3, 2008 — A coalition of Episcopal clergy and laypeople today invited everyone in the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh to an event promoting diocesan unity. “A Hopeful Future for the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh: An Alternative Solution” will present the case for rejecting proposals that, purportedly, would remove the diocese from The Episcopal Church. Speakers will explain how continuity of the diocese as a judicatory of The Episcopal Church will be maintained irrespective of the outcome of the vote on “realignment” at the October 4 diocesan convention.
“A Hopeful Future” will be presented at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 1066 Washington Rd., Mt. Lebanon, Pa., from 1 to 3 pm on Saturday, September 13, 2008. The program will be of special interest to vestry members, convention deputies, and Episcopal Church supporters feeling isolated in pro-realignment parishes. Those interested in attending may obtain additional information by calling St. Paul’s at (412) 531-7153 or by visiting its Web site at http://stpaulspgh.org . (Ed. there is nothing I found on the church's website about this meeting except the date but you can find directions to the church.)
IMNSHO the people who should be especially interested are the ones who have swallowed Bishop Duncan's, um, er, opinions without being willing to seek out the facts of TEC.
An Irish woman of advanced age visited her physician to ask his help in reviving her husband's libido. "What about trying Viagra? asks the doctor. "Not a chance", she said. "He won't even take an aspirin". "Not a problem", replied the doctor. "Give him an Irish Viagra. Drop it into his coffee. He won't even taste it. Give it a try and call me in a week to let me know how things went". It wasn't a week later that she called the doctor, who directly inquired as to her progress. The poor dear exclaimed, "Oh, faith, bejaysus and begorrah! T'was horrid. Just terrible, doctor!". "Really? What happened?" asked the doctor. "Well, I did as you advised and slipped it in his coffee and the effect was almost immediate. He jumped hisself straight up, with a twinkle in his eye, and with his pants a-bulging fiercely! With one swoop of his arm, he sent the cups and tablecloth flying, ripped me clothes to tatters and took me then and there, making wild, mad, passionate love to me on the tabletop! It was a nightmare, I tell you, an absolute nightmare!" "Why so terrible?" asked the doctor, "Do you mean the sex your husband provided wasn't good"? "Oh, no, no, no, doctor, the sex was fine indeed! 'Twas the best sex I've had in 25 years! But sure as I'm sittin' here, I'll never be able to show me face in Starbucks again"
Why don't hotels located near airports put parking information on their websites? Why don't travel sites like Orbitz, Travelocity, etc. include that useful stuff? Kinda dumb if you ask me. Which nobody did.
I need a hotel room for one night near EWR that will include leaving my car for two weeks plus. Think I will check with AAA tomorrow.
