I believe ...

I believe ALL good comes from God; there is no other source of goodness.

an interview ...

Friday, May 15, 2015

President of Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) comments on the Vatican inquiry and oversight experience:

I didn't read it. Despite not having done much of anything today, I am tired. My mind is tired. But I post the link here for those who may be interested.

Odd that I would stumble upon it because I haven't followed any Catholic news in the past several years; I don't even read the parish bulletin. It started with someone wondering aloud what is the Pope's stance on transgender. So I said I would check the internet to see what I could find. And in my wanderings, I came across the above article. So there you have it.

Matthew 6:19-21

Saturday, May 09, 2015

19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal.
20 But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal.
21 For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.


( from The New American Bible, Revised Edition)

cleaning stainless steel dog bowls

just a public service announcement:
 
We have stainless steel dog bowls for our dogs. I don't know what grade of stainless steel. We use them for feeding. Good bowls; they should last forever. I have discovered that powder Comet cleanser works great for cleaning the bowls when dish detergent just isn't enough to cut through the slobber.

I like the simplistic design and the use of stainless steel. It looks good as far as simple scooters go. It appears to be well-sized for adults. I think that it's quite suitable for going through indoor conventions, though there isn't any place for collecting stuff. You know, the freebies you get at conventions.

downsides:
I can see that is has almost no storage capacity (no place to put your stuff). Also, the "Y" configuration does not fold. The video shows it to be a bit awkward because it is an adult-sized frame. As with almost all compact scooters, I suspect there will be an "ouch" when going over bumps.


Merry Christmas

I know, we are still in Advent. But Christmas is so close!

My job has been good to me. But it has kept me very busy. As I try to catch up with life next week, I may not have the time to post, so I'm posting now to wish everyone a most wonderful Christmas season. May you have more hope. May you have something to look forward to. May your loved ones be close by, and safe. And most of all, may you grow ever closer to God.

Merry Christmas.

Made my own Olaf for now. He's flat and fragile. But he looks happy anyways.
