    I found this...and it really was 'peace' reading it.

    I believe I will spend sometime on the porch at Sunset...in Silent Saturday reflection.

    Great and Holy Saturday - Troparion & Kontakion

    Troparion — Tone 2

    When You descended to death, O Life Immortal, / You slayed hell with the splendor of Your Godhead, / and when from the depths You raised the dead, / all the Powers of Heaven cried out, / O Giver of Life, Christ our God, glory to You!

    Kontakion — Tone 6

    He who shut in the depths is beheld dead, / wrapped in fine linen and spices. / The Immortal One is laid in a tomb as a mortal man. / The women have come to anoint Him with myrrh, / weeping bitterly and crying: / “This is the most blessed Sabbath / on which Christ has fallen asleep to rise on the third day!”

    And:

    “Yorkshire is expected to loose as much as £3.45 a day until  the carnage can be cleared , which could potentially take weeks to clear “ a spokesman said .

    Now there's a thought.

    Maybe not a good one, but a thought.

    No, I don't think we would waste even cheap, store brand, hooch on it.

    Her answer she thought we'd use them the Grandkids where last year.

     

    That tells you when you last used them.

  5. I wonder why...

    A farmer walked into an attorney's office wanting to file for a divorce.
    The attorney asked, "May I help you?"
    The farmer said, "Yea, I want to get one of those dayvorces."
    The attorney said, "Well, do you have any grounds?"
    The farmer said, "Yea, I got about 140 acres."
    The attorney said, "No, you don't understand, do you have a case?"
    The farmer said, "No, I don't have a Case, but I have a John Deere."
    The attorney said, "No, you don't understand. I mean do you have a grudge?"
    The farmer said, "Yea, I got a grudge. That's where I park my John Deere."
    The attorney said, "No sir, I mean do you have a suit?"
    The farmer said, "Yes sir, I got a suit. I wear it to church on Sundays."
    The exasperated attorney said, "Well, sir, does your wife beat you up or anything?"
    The farmer said, "No sir, we both get up about 4:30."
    Finally, the attorney says, "Okay, let me put it this way. WHY DO YOU WANT A DIVORCE?"

    And the farmer says, "Well, I can never have a meaningful conversation with her."

  6. I've seen it advertised.   Was out shopping on my way home from work and saw it on an endfacing, decided to try it.   Picked up a coffee vanilla and a can of bold dark.   We gave them a try after dinner.   

     

    The wife opened the vanilla,  took a sip, handed the can to me.  I took a small sip and swisher it around to clean my mouth,  then took a drink to taste.   "Tastes like maple syrup, " I said.  "Yes!" said she, "That's it!"  I  told her to pour it out.  She did and popped the other can.  "Tastes the same, maple syrup. "  and she poured it out.   

     

    Well, it sounded interesting.   Never again.

    And when I asked him what sort of music the DJ played, he had a puzzled expression when he answered, "Really strange stuff.  All I remember is that it was by people with names like Dino and Frankie and Doris...!"  

     

    :lol:

    And I never heard him take her to task. Never heard him complain. Just continued drinking his coffee from a (the horrors) clean cup.

    I'm pretty proud to be able to say that I have chaired or participated in well over a hundred Eagle Scout Boards of Review.  

     

     

    Thanks,  Hardpan.   I  figured you would like it.  That's why I put it in a separate thread rather than just putting it in the cartoon thread.
