Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea are erupting together. Mauna Loa's last eruption was April 15, 1984. My sister smells sulfur. Pictures at night from the western side of the Big Island (Kona) are spectacular. These mountains are over 13,000 feet and have major telescopes atop.
“The idea we still allow semi-automatic weapons to be purchased is sick. Just sick,” Biden said in Massachusetts. Interesting that Pope Francis has called me “sick” for attending the Latin Mass, and now Biden has used the same word for gun owners. No. 27 - Frannie says we Catholics who adhere to tradition are guilty of indietrism, and as nearly as I can make that out, it means looking backward. Meanwhile, in China, there is countrywide rioting. “Any state, any entity, any ideology that fails to recognize the worth, the dignity, the rights of man, that state is obsolete.” - Rod Serling
The Missal depicted is the one I use. The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) has only four locations in California: Sacramento, Fresno, Los Angeles, and San Diego. A link to the Mass of the Ages film is under the More tab, New Movie. The Sacramento bishop supports us, and we support him, while P. Francis has low regard for the USA. We are delivering him a hammer fist.

Dragon’s 26th Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-26) mission to the International Space Station was dispatched on 11/26/2022 from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The reusable rocket successfully landed back on Earth minutes later. View on rumble.com as it happened …

Root – Old French eucariste, from Late Latin eucharistia, from Greek eukharistia, meaning “thanksgiving, gratitude.”

Following is a detailed article about Mel Gibson and the possibility of Part 2. If made, it is unlikely I will see it, because Jesus' face will be on screen. I would rather see the face turned or in shadow. "Jesus Wept" by James Tissot (French), which shows Christ covering His face with His hands, is what I prefer. www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/objects/4536 Let me know if you see the film.
Starting December 5, 2022, Golden Hills Elementary School in Tehachapi, north of Los Angeles, will host an After School Satan Club.
From among several reports, I chose the one from the San Francisco Chronicle because it would be viewed as unbiased.
Quotes from the San Francisco Chronicle:
For years, the Satanic Temple, a group The Washington Post describes as a “nontheistic religious organization advocating for secularism and scientific rationalism,” has been launching these clubs in public schools where evangelical Christian groups — namely, the Good News Club — have their own meetings.
The group says that in club meetings it is “not interested in converting children to Satanism” and that sessions “will focus on free inquiry and rationalism, the scientific basis for which we know what we know about the world around us.”
This statement from the Satanic Temple must be taken with a heavy dose of skepticism. The group describes itself as a sect that advocates for secularism. Secularism is what it is – anti-religion and, specifically, anti-Christian, and everyone knows it.
There is nothing irrational or unscientific about Catholicism, just as there is nothing irrational about Aristotle or unscientific about Copernicus or Galileo. Aquinas (A.D. 1225-1274) incorporated Aristotle into Catholic philosophy. Copernicus, a Catholic canon, and Galileo, a Catholic with daughters in religious life, influenced Francis Bacon, an Anglican and the man credited with formalizing and popularizing the scientific method.
Moreover, the Satanic Temple will never produce great art and music.
One could have guessed two and been right, but this solution is more like a proof demonstrating the use of the quadratic equation, root quattuor, Latin for four because there are four terms, including the zero. I have a friend whose last name is Ekk. If one saw his family approaching, one could say, “Here come the Ekks.” X
This is a clip from a 1963-65 sci-fi television show I liked as a youngster. The Zantis, pronounced "zanteez", are sent from a penal colony far away. Mission: establish Earth as another penal colony.
A reading of Emily Dickinson’s poem, “Hope” is the thing with feathers
“You asked, and now I will answer. To date, monsieur, my stories have contained no foul language. Such has come out of the mouths of characters, not from the omniscient narrator. Realism has certain demands, M. Chopin. Yet, the Catholic Writers Guild has never given me their Seal of Approval. The Guild cannot distinguish the difference just elucidated. Membership, over. The rebirth of Catholic arts, their motto, will issue elsewhere. Nor was the secular publishing world a friend to me, a fairly competent fiction writer of the male sort, of a rather traditional bent like you, and not into trash and trends. It’s been fun. Maybe someday I’ll see you on Quora. Here are the directions.”
Chopin by a Russian monk whose religious name is Abel and birth name is Paul de Senneville
Jane’s arrest occurred on Nov. 1, 2020, in a church in Kansas City, Missouri. I was not able to identify which Latin Mass church in St. Mary’s, Kansas, she now attends. The online contact to this bishop is currently down. One can only write or call him.
Senate: Democrats 50, Republicans 49, one run-off election in Georgia
House of Representatives: Republicans 218, Democrats 210 (That is 428, but total house seats are 435, leaving some races, seven by my count, still undetermined.)
Seems to reflect the half-half split in the country.
Here is my edict on health. Ha!
At 18, every person is placed under the continuous care of a doctor and a priest. When a person turns 18, care of that person is safe for the practitioners and is divorced from parents.
The doctor will deal with your mind and body and prescribe medicines. The connection between mind and body is obvious yet mysterious.
The priest will deal with your will and prescribe intentional acts. The connection between the will and mind and body is obvious and not so mysterious.
You are informed that Freud, Science, and God are indispensable and this kind of assistance will help you avoid common pitfalls: depression, alcohol, drugs, smoking, excessive weight, excessive exercise, eating disorders, criminality and narcissism, passive-aggressive behavior, and so forth.
This is what a good pope could have ordered for the Catholic world of 1.36 billion souls, 5,500 hospitals, 16,000 homes for the elderly and patients with special needs, and 18,000 clinics. He could have reordered care. He thinks that the politics of social justice can solve all problems. What a failure he is. If he cared, he would have acted.
Is my medicinal edict preposterous? Lacking research?
No category for this post: not a fit.
How can we measure the speed of light? Answered by Quora contributor Matthew Talia, Theoretical Particle Physicist, Warsaw, Poland
[edited slightly to shorten]
You can do it in the comfort of your own home! Do you have a microwave and something that melts rather easily, let’s say a chocolate bar?
The next thing you will need to know is the frequency of microwave radiation. There is a good chance it is written somewhere on your microwave oven. The standard is usually 2.45 GHz (gigahertz).
Remove the turntable first, place your chocolate bar in, and after microwaving for a bit, take your chocolate bar out and measure the distance between two melted spots.
Multiplying this distance by 2 will give you the wavelength of microwave radiation interference inside the microwave oven.
The product of the oven wavelength [what you measured] and frequency [usually 2.45, as he stated] should give you the speed of light.
I think I might try this with Alexander, who turns nine in a month.
A federal judge on 11/11/22 invalidated a Biden Administration rule that directed the Department of Health and Human Services to make sex change procedures and hormone therapy available to children. The judge argued that it was improper for the Biden administration to interpret Title IX to encompass ‘gender identity’ and that it could not be changed unless Congress introduces legislation to that effect or the US Supreme Court makes a different decision.
