Saturday March 17th – Open Thread

Our 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 †

        I think the best thing to do about these attacks is ignore them. I used to think we should fight back, but now I think we just elevate this foolishness to a thing, by responding to it.

    Irish Protesters March for Unborn ahead of May Abortion Referendum

    Irish citizens will decide on May 25 whether to repeal the 1983 Eighth Amendment to the Irish Constitution, which grants an equal right to life to an unborn baby and its mother. The proposed liberalization of the law would allow unrestricted abortion up to twelve weeks into pregnancy.

    So, interesting little side story about my small town in GA… It is about 80(ish) miles along the southern beginning of the Appalachian Trail. Pretty much the first place that through-Hikers can get to a hotel and a real store to stock up… etc. So this time of year it is pretty common to see these brave souls coming in, with their giant back packs. There is a hostel at the highway crossing, oh 7 miles away that has a courtesy van for shopping etc. Most people in town are well aware of them, and provide rides when they are hitching either way. There is a nice sign in the little town square that says “Hikers Welcome”. The Trail leaves GA and crosses into NC near my cabin, well, a few miles through really mountainous forests. It is roughly 2200 miles, from GA to Maine, and to do it in one pass is a lifelong achievement… God Bless them, and keep them…

          ok…just wondering…gravel and dirt won’t work for a touring bike.

          there’s a great 400+ mile biking route/trail (paved) that runs from Mississippi up into Tennessee…

          the Natchez Trace Parkway.

          thought maybe something similar might also exist over there in your area.

              Smiley, I lived many years in Mississippi and traveled the Trace from Natchez to Tupelo. It’s been a bunch of years, but the Trace was simply a two-lane paved highway with mostly no shoulders, much less a bike path. Speed limit was 10 MPH less than most highways, which drivers routinely ignored. And lots of rolling country with limited areas suitable for passing, so plenty of short-tempered drivers passing unsafely. The good thing was very few trucks bigger than a pickup. All in all, not a bucket list bike path for me. Unless they’ve made the whole thing a non-motorized path…then it would be an awesome ride!

      Hiking the Appalachian Trail…wouldn’t consider it these days without a gun, sad to say. (Understanding it’s illegal to carry in some of the states but would take my chances that police wouldn’t be that interested to hike in to check. Too many murders and crimes along the Trail against hikers.

    Is anyone else bugged by a pop up that interferes with reading this website? My reading is repeatedly blocked by a screen congratulating me for winning a prize as an Amazon User, instructing me to click OK to get my prize. The only click offered however is a close button, which promptly hijacks the browser to a stupid timed trivia contest. The urls are bogus. It takes many steps to close out and reopen TCH, only to be hijacked again. Very annoying, but I can’t figure out how to block it. I read TCH on my iPad and on Safari on my iMac. Any help will be appreciated.

    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.
