    From srdem65’s post 8/26/16 @ 3:36 pm EDT: “Friends, we need a happy day here. No war, no politics, nada. Hopefully no tragedies to worry about either. Photos of our babies - two legged and four legged. Some yummy treats we might make at home, some lovely drinks to make, and an exotic meal or two. Tales of happy times with the family, the children. I'm getting burned out and I bet you are too.” “So let it be written. So let it be done.”Since I’m not going to be around I don’t think it would be wise to open...

    On the Lost Justice of the “Sabbath Rest” By: Msgr. Charles PopeSome of us who are older remember that Sundays were once quiet in downtown; in shopping areas, parking lots were empty. Most businesses were closed and few people had to work on Sundays. Surely there were exceptions, such as medical personnel, emergency workers, and those who ran essential services like power plants. But for most, Sunday was a day off. And although the biblical Sabbath was Saturday, in a largely Christian nation Sunday was the “Sabbath” day of rest.In those days, Church was in the morning and then it was...

    Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s push to get tough on illegal immigration has apparently cost him the support of ranchers. The Kansas Livestock Association has come out in support of Kobach’s Republican challenger Scott Morgan in the Aug. 5 primary. The group says Kobach strays beyond the traditional roles of secretary of state by taking up issues such as immigration and blocking federal environmental protections of the lesser prairie chicken.

    Being a mom or dad is one of life's greatest joys. But early on weekend mornings? We're not always feeling the joy so much. In a series of Vine videos now going viral, one bleary-eyed dad captures the truth of Saturday mornings as a parent. Tony Serafini, a 38-year-old dad from Leominster, Mass., spends Saturday mornings alone with his 4-year-old daughter after his wife and eldest daughter leave for dance class. He started shooting a series of videos showing the little girl rocking out to her favorite music in the background, while dad blearily waits for his caffeine to kick...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 12/4/2013 | Elizabeth Harrington
    The Obama administration quietly finalized the Health Insurance Tax (HIT) over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, a provision in Obamacare that will cost nearly $60 billion over the next five years and raise health care premiums by 3 percent.The final rule, published on Nov. 27, imposes a fee beginning in 2014 for health insurers with premium revenues over $25 million per year. The annual tax is levied for “United States health risks,” and is hidden from consumers since it is directly assessed on health insurance companies.David R. Burton, a senior fellow in economic policy at the Heritage Foundation, said the tax...

    Steve McQueen, who committed to Christ late in life, TV show 'Wanted: Dead or Alive' is now featured each weekend on the MeTv Network From 1963 to 1978, Steve McQueen was considered by movie fans and big screen insiders as one of the main leading actors in Hollywood. The rugged faced actor's roles defined "cool" and his persona was idolized by men and women alike, yet he remained unfazed by Hollywood's glitter. Late in his life the famous actor finally realized his need for God and decided to commit his life to Christ. Terrance Steven McQueen was born in Beech...

    Reid cancels Senate’s weekend sessionBy Josiah Ryan - 07/22/11 11:21 AM ET Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) canceled all weekend work for the Senate on Friday, saying it is no longer necessary. "It looked earlier this week like the Senate would have to originate legislation perhaps as soon as today to avoid default,” he said. "Circumstances have changed. The Speaker of the House and the president have been working to reach agreement on a major deficit-reduction measure.” Reid said that constitutionally, any such measure would have to originate in the House anyway, so there is little the Senate can...

    The marriage proposal was apparently a rather romantic affair. On Christmas Eve, the couple watched a late-night movie together and then exchanged gifts: for him a framed photograph of their King Charles Spaniel, for her an engagement ring. ‘She burst into tears,’ he revealed on Twitter at the weekend. ‘This is the happiest Christmas in memory.’ ‘The most memorable Christmas ever,’ she tweeted in agreement. ‘I love him.’ All of which might be rather more touching if the ­prospective groom was not Playboy tycoon Hugh Hefner who, at 84, is 60 years older than his fiancée, a platinum blonde model...

    Obama hits golf course with Biden on another hot, humid weekend By Bridget Johnson - 06/19/10 03:37 PM ET President Barack Obama hit the golf course Saturday with Vice President Joe Biden. The White House pool report noted that Obama left at about 1 p.m. for the course at Andrews Air Force base, and his golfing parters included White House Trip Director Marvin Nicholson and photographer David Katz. Nicholson and Katz, along with Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, joined Obama for four hours of golf last weekend. The Republican National Committee released an ad soon afterward taking aim at Obama's golfing...

    It's the week-end... and frankly, I need an escape from all the bad news about Oil Spills, a rude, impudent former Beatle (time to call it quits, sir Paul), a President who's legacy will be measured in how much damage he caused, bad umpiring, a middle east in... well, you get the idea. So there I was trolling on youtube when I came upon some old friends of mine. And I thought to myself, "Here... HERE'S one thing that's still right in America: Real Music.

    During the last few weeks I've had some extra time contemplating sources of online news to consume on the weekends, especially at night. During the week, there are plenty of sources cranking out news and content, but a lot go into repeat and regurgitate mode on the weekends. So, other than the Sunday morning news shows, there's not much I've found to listen to, read or surf for my political "fix". I did find a channel that replays Friday episodes of Rush's show, after midnight on Sunday, but most times I've already heard it *on* Friday. So I'm asking for...
