Tomb of the Unknown ChristmasOur Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

      Thanks – I really needed that.

      No matter what happens here on earth, no matter how we fail, fear and falter, in Christ, there is hope that cannot die, love that is true, peace that passes all understanding, life everlasting.

      I may have hit on the “perfect” solution… have ALL of the boys change in the nurses office! That way, the girl who thinks she’s a boy can have to boy’s lockerroom all to herself… and the nurse will just have to find a new place to do his or her nursely duties… as his or her office is jam packed with boys.

    Nefarious code. Apparently some sneaky malware has found its way to the Treehouse. This time I got redirected to a window offering an “official” Microsoft Win7 upgrade. Its bogus of course, because that’s not how Microsoft handles things. Still someone might think it’s real.

    Van Morrison – Days Like This

    When it’s not always raining there’ll be days like this
    When there’s no one complaining there’ll be days like this
    When everything falls into place like the flick of a switch
    Well my mama told me there’ll be days like this
    When you don’t need to worry there’ll be days like this
    When no one’s in a hurry there’ll be days like this
    When you don’t get betrayed by that old Judas kiss
    Oh my mama told me there’ll be days like this
    When you don’t need an answer there’ll be days like this
    When you don’t meet a chancer there’ll be days like this
    When all the parts of the puzzle start to look like they f it
    Then I must remember there’ll be days like this
    When everyone is up front and they’re not playing tricks
    When you don’t have no freeloaders out to get their kicks
    When it’s nobody’s business the way that you want to live
    I just have to remember there’ll be days like this
    When no one steps on my dreams there’ll be days like this
    When people understand what I mean there’ll be days like this
    When you ring out the changes of how everything is
    Well my mama told me there’ll be days like this
    Oh my mama told me
    There’ll be days like this
    Oh my mama told me
    There’ll be days like this
    Oh my mama told me
    There’ll be days like this
    Oh my mama told me
    There’ll be days like this

    Songwriters: Van Morrison
    Days Like This lyrics © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC

    “The title song turns a common expression and famous pop song chorus on its head. Usually, the phrase “My momma told me there’d be days like this” is something you say to make yourself feel better at the end of a tough day: the implication is that a good day might be just around the corner. The singer, steeling himself against disappointments and letdowns, does not want to feel too good on the good days: ‘When all the parts of the puzzle start to seem like they fit / Then I must remember there’ll be days like this’.” – Scott Thomas

    Paul Joseph Watson may be censored by Youtube (Google) as they are classifying him as a extremist… seriously?!

    • dalethorn says:

      I think they intended to “not promote” the so-called extremists rather than outright ban them. In one sense, by killing their revenue streams, they would marginalize people like Paul Watson. On the other hand, they could become quite popular outside of revenue streams, if people like Watson agree to post without commercial support, and if Youtube/Google/DARPA doesn’t have other suppression tactics ready.

      I’ve been trying to keep up with the earth quakes and volcano eruptions and lately it seems that these phenomenon are happening more frequently. I’m glad that I don’t live in those zones – it may get to a point that it doesn’t matter where you live – we will get slapped silly with sort of planetary extreme anyway.

        Fascinating. Much to think about…how it all relates to the future of humankind and our planet. Are these signs and warnings for us to get our act together? To repent of our wicked ways? Yes or no, either way, it’s a good time to look inside ourselves and weed out all those things which keep us from living the life God meant for each of us.

  20. Just a little timely insight to the Gonzaga basketball program from someone who knows ….

    At one time decades ago, the head coach/athletic director believed that the Zags never could win its own league championship. The school nearly went out of existence in the early 90s, and it was last in funding in the WCAC. And not by a little. Its athletic department had half of the dollars of the second-to-the-last team in the league in that regard. The situation was as dire as it could be. I was a season ticket holder, and had access to the brass, and heard all of the sob stories.

    That it is a national power these days is a ridiculous, far-fetched, comical situation. So much of it was pure luck that no other small school could hope to duplicate. Weird, actually. Go Zags against Xavier tonight, but if it turns out to be a loss … then good luck to the victors.

    I have been visiting this site for the past 2 yrs or so. Sundance has always been a beacon of truth, HOWEVER, recently my faith in him/her has waivered. A few days ago Sundance posted in the comments that Rand Paul is the ENEMY. I am having a hard time wrapping my head around that comment. I understand that Rand is scheduling meetings and meetings etc with lack of action to back it up. That’s his role at this moment maybe? Remember Trump went to KY a few weeks ago to meet with Rand? I believe that this Ryancare was doomed from the start and Trump was using reverse psychology/46 dimensional chess to give Ryan enough rope to hang himself. Not sure why the vitriol from sundance against Rand. Please explain

      You’re on the wrong thread. You’re not likely to get an answer hear. This is the general discussion tread. We talk about music, art, sports, cats and family issues here. Not much political discussion here. You need to go to the “Presidential Politics” thread. The title is misleading, it should be called “The general politics thread”. But to be brief with your comment, I generally agree with SD. The Paul family are your basic libertarians. Sundance has never been a modern libertarian of the kind that grew out of the 1970’s, your Ayn Rand type. If you’re a Paulbot, you will be challenged by Sundance.

        Occasionally, even Sd has a different opinion of individuals; but of course, Sd is only human!! IKR!!

        Welcome AereolaPuffington, interesting name.

        And Timmy is correct, we are trying to get discussion of politics on to the designated political threads. Notices of info are one thing; but general discussion needs to go on the “political thread”

And I do feel that I have actually conveyed Sd’s views about Rand Paul without going into detail. I truly beg your forgiveness.

      I don’t mean to continue the off-topic, but I wanted to suggest a principle or two before we end this, and that is the dilemma when someone is a strict Constitutionalist and Conservative, who is generally unwilling to compromise on any such principles. I think in politics if you can never compromise, you usually don’t get anything done. And then there’s the loyalty principle. It gets complicated.

    Here is a bacon recipe for today’s lunch/snack
    4 slices bacon
    1/2 cup sliced onion
    1-2 slices cheese (Any flavor, but a solid cheese with lower water content would work better.)
    2 slices (white) bread
    2 tbsp. butter approximate
    1 green scallion is optional

    Toast bread and/or cook in pan as below.
    Cook bacon.
    While cooking bacon [1] heat a skillet to medium heat. Add butter. Once the butter is melted, add the onion. Cook onion, stirring frequently, about 15-20 minutes or until a caramel color and the onions are very soft. Add more butter as needed. [1] You can add bacon drippings to butter and onion if you cook bacon first and keep bacon warm in oven.
    When the onions have finished cooking, place cheese on top of the onions and allow to melt. Put the bacon on toasted bread, then the onion cheese combo, and then top with the other slice of toast. You can also take the onions out of the pan, put on the cheese and cover to melt. Then add the bread/toast to the pan to get flavored, crisp, and hot. Another choice if you don’t mind another dirty pan is to pour some of the drippings in another pan to flavor/crisp/heat the bread, and then in the first pan add the cheese to the onions to melt.
    For those who like something green, just before putting the sandwich together chop up some fresh green scallions and add.

    Dogs detect breast cancer from bandage: researchers
    Paris (AFP) – Dogs can sniff out cancer from a piece of cloth which had touched the breast of a woman with a tumour, researchers said Friday, announcing the results of an unusual, but promising, diagnostic trial.
    With just six months of training, a pair of German Shepherds became 100-percent accurate in their new role as breast cancer spotters, the team said.
    The technique is simple, non-invasive and cheap, and may revolutionise cancer detection in countries where mammograms are hard to come by.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
