this book is fascinating, but truly makes one feel hopeless even about the church.

Truthy truant in Trinidad makes for better alliteration. I'll go for that, and we can say "Dave's dining in downtown Detroit."

There’s a slow-growing liberal acceptance
Of Obama getting his just comeuppance
We Freepers all knew
He ain’t worth a sou
Or, as Poppins would say, not a twopence

This dude needs more than a comeuppance, he needs a solid smack. Too bad they didn't do it at the polls last time around. Beware of giant pic of ugliness at link.

I’m not certain I could read that book without it ramping up my conviction that these are the end times-and I’m already pretty sure they are-I’m reading something diverting-heavy on medieval history and action, by Bernard Cornwell...

It is 52 and cloudy here, and low 70’s predicted for afternoon-

There’s a comeuppance looming
Well deserved, and long overdue-
It seems Obamacare has caused
The falling of that other shoe

As a gaggle of Obama’s minions
Rush to try and hide the mess
The driveby media turns rogue
And increases their distress

By gathering and reporting on
A scandal that looks the worst
Since Nixon said he wasn’t a crook
And they want to be there first...

I’m reminding myself to take a trowel with me when I’m next at my future undisclosed location to dig around for the best spot to do a garden with enough production for barter/sale in addition to my own needs-I already stocked a roll of fencing, and some landscape/shade fabric in anticipation of such an opportunity over a year ago...

If you protest the government, MSNBC will give you your comeuppance. Can't find the original video, which she put on FB, but here is the version they are using today to mock her. She is only on at the very beginning...the token white soccer mom sacrifice.

Remember that book, Goodbye, Good Men? That one was supposedly a true account of gay priests. Well, one of those so called “gay” priests was in my parish. My daughter met his former fiance. The man couldn’t help himself, he was a flirt. 8 months to 80, he was flirting. NO WAY he liked men. Don’t believe it all, there is much hope in our church.

oh i totally believe the book Goodbye, Good Men. there is a lavender mafia, make no mistake. of course not all are gay, but enough are, and those in high positions. it takes a strong man to withstand that culture in an institution like that. This book by Matthew Despard is excellent.

I thought she did great, too, but I was partial. Glad to hear you thought so, too. I live in a small town. I was out to breakfast and chatting with a waitress who attended school with my daughter and she is somehow connected, if not outright related, to Janet. She hadn’t heard she was on national TV, but she was not surprised by it.

I didn’t believe it after meeting one of his victims. He nearly ruined this priest’s life. The priest actively denied it, and he was very believable. He was here for years and I knew him well.

I do believe there is a gay culture in the priesthood, my former Bishop was reported to be part of it, still, not all priests are. I have no doubt that many good priests exist and withstand the culture.

Thank you!

I intend to use property to produce income from natural resources as much as possible-organic growing of veggies, and herbs-especially the ones not commonly grown here is a way to do that, a way to eat healthy at minimal cost and good stress relief in the bargain. I’m downright sorry that I don’t like insects-there are not many beekeepers, and the few there are sell all the honey their hives can produce. Any extra income, be it barter or coin is both welcome and necessary in these hard times.

On the other hand, I could starve to death while standing in the middle of a wheat, corn, alfalfa, cotton, or soybean field in Kansas ......

I assume there is food there someplace, somewhere on those plants, but how you turn it into calories is beyond my pay grade .... Carrots, squash, beans, pumpkins, or apples L could probably manage. Those are kind of lumpy.

Wheat and other grain crops have seed heads on the top of the plant that you harvest and grind-soybeans have to be processed for human consumption, cotton isn’t for humans to eat, and alfalfa is dessert for horses, and makes nice tea.

The only item in that list I ever grow is plain old corn, and picking, shucking and cooking that is way easy...

So, if you take a wheat plant apart, then throw away those parts you can’t eat, then grind up what’s left over, then add other stuff, then cook what is left over after mixing everything up, then heat it all up .... there’s bread and pretzels and rolls and pizza inside someplace? 8<)

Well, we sort of do-we call them “food crops” if we can eat part or all of the plant/tree/bush-the catch is that most have to be grown and harvested first...

I can’t really picture a whiskey tree/bush-would it grow little airplane flight bottles like flowers or fruit?

Actually, if we wanted to start growing ready-made food and alcoholic beverages, we’d probably be better off with a Star Trek type food replicator...
