It is so nice to see the Vatican battle the Church of England in a cricket match. ...that should settle things. Check out my priest in this video. His 15 minutes of fame.

OK, so the punctilio was totally missing from my post. Let’s move on.

I am watching Fox and Friends to check out Elisabeth Hasselbeck. I have purposely ignored Fox for months, so I didn’t know she was on. Sounds like a good move.

I wish my management team would exercise some punctilio with the standards we’ve put in place, but I continue to fight with them on system uptime and system changes during the overnight hours.

They are in Dallas for the wedding of her college roommate this weekend. It will be special because it’s her chance to introduce him to her college friends, whom she has not seen for the past 2 years, and she can show him around her alma mater etc.

He is running the RCIA program that I am helping with, so I see him every Wednesday night for 2 hours. So far, it has been a very interesting experience. Wouldn’t miss it.

An ideal President would be punctilious, but what we now have in Office is bilious, imperious and supercilious.

Not to mention treasonous.

yes, it is going to be fun for her. she did not have a boyfriend at UD, so it’s going to be a good feeling to go there with him and a ring on her finger. The couple who is getting married were both in her class, and they were all in Rome together for that semester. Lilia and Jake are having a civil ceremony tonight at the courthouse, the church wedding is on 12/21 in Rome. Obv most UD kids are not going to have the wherewithal to go to that ceremony, so they are going to the Dallas one. xsteen and her affianced are planning to honeymoon in Rome next Sept though.

The Obamacare rollout imbroglio
Shows Barack’s disregard for punctilio
He says he’s high-tech
But he’s too loose, low dreck
The programs they’re using are paleo

When people get old and frail, they need help and shouldn’t be living 900 miles away from family. Our nephew is pushing the idea and I think it’s a good one, after all the trips to Houston and NJ for my dad over the past couple of years. Not to mention all the frustration of trying to care for someone so far away.

See my Post #5 in this thread:

Maryland Governor Hopeful Slammed for Attending Son's Underage Drinking Party

They are blasting him and justifiably so.

Is “Punctilio” the more respectable twin brother of “Cornholio”?

Took 3 years, to rebuild the house after my FIL passed, so my MIL could live here, and she was only several miles away, but with too much house, and too much that needed to be taken care of.

Happily, she def seems healthier now than then.

No less a philosopher than Kurt Cobain sang that “it’s ok to eat fish, cause they don’t have any feelings.”

And, Jackie Treehorn treats objects like women, man.

It is an extremely sad commentary on our society that people this cockamamie aren’t laughed out of society, or committed.
