  1. There is your answer. A change such as you describe will only result from something touching the ball.
  2. He won't have his party affiliation listed. There is a difference.
  3. In which case, at worst, it should be in TEAM SASS. But as a general question I can't see any issue with it being here.
  4. It may have a bearing on our anti-civil rights laws.
  5. Thanks, Bob. May God give both of you strength, comfort, and peace. And, when the time comes, grant Carol a peaceful and easy passing.
  6. Thank you. The monk who is the lead on our iconography studied under Leonid Ouspenski and has spent decades trying to perfect his art. He spent several years on our iconography program just on learning were to source the lime, how to slake it, how to apply it. And I think he went to Italy to work with some old fresco painters. He and his assistant do one small section at a time, maybe about 4 ft x 6 ft. One gets up at about 0300 to plaster a section, then the other comes back to start drawing and painting a few hours later.
  7. Nope. If offered, I wouldn't decline, but it is very unlikely. Main reason is that I was divorced by my first wife, and then I married a divorced woman. In some jurisdictions, because all that happened before we became Orthodox, that wouldn't matter. But in ours it does.
  8. Will do. Except it isn't restoration, it was founded in 1996 (60 years after the first church was founded). Several albums here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/sgmworkshop/collections/72157624734590294/ Journal articles here: https://orthodoxartsjournal.org/tag/santa-rosa/
  9. Thank you. The parish is Protection of the Holy Virgin Mary. The church is St. Seraphim of Sarov Orthodox Cathedral, the 2nd church on the grounds. Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, California.
  10. Our priest's eldest son was ordained into the diaconate today. Not only the son of a priest, but the grandson, and I think great grandson of priests. A few photos taken by the wife of another priest. Click on the photo to get to the album.
  11. In 1862 Union soldier Samuel Decker was reloading his gun when it misfired and blew off half of both his arms. By 1865 he had designed and overseen the building of a set of state-of-the-art prosthetic limbs "hitherto unrivaled for ingenuity and utility." With his new arms, he was able to feed and clothe himself as well as perform even more challenging tasks such as picking up objects as small as a pin and regaining the ability to write. In 1867 he was invited to the Army Medical Museum where he sat for photos so that he and his invention could be documented.
  12. National Naval Aviation Museum Julyh muetSSSd2Sp9o,n 2shouhrnmet015d ยท The crew of Forrestal (CVA 59) gallantly fought to save their ship, the Plan of the Day for July 30th honoring their service and the memories of lost shipmates.
  13. What I was taught with the stick method was to form it into a cup on the end of the stick. Then when you pull it off or the stick you put the butter and honey in the hole. If you have mess kits you grease the beejeebers out of them, put the dough in one, use the other for a lid, if you have it, wrap them in foil. Did a hole, put some coals in it, then about an inch of dirt, the mess kits, cover with about half an inch of dirt, cover with lively coals. Dig up after about half an hour.
  14. I might have posted this a few months ago. Worth another look. https://youtube.com/shorts/SHgCP_gHOuU?feature=share
  15. My boss was complaining in a staff meeting the other day that he wasn't getting any respect. Later that morning he went out and got a small sign that read, "I'm the Boss." He then taped it to his office door. Later that day when he returned from lunch, he found that someone had taped a note to the sign that said: "Your wife called. She wants you to bring her sign back."
  16. SOP. Cook 'em on a stick over the fire.
