I read this article and thought how sad for these people. Well I am sure there is someone somewhere thinking this is sad, no sympathy here. It just seems to me the standard operating procedure for big business, even one going down the tube. It is just sad...

Well Improv Everywhere has struck again. If you have never heard of IE you can go check them out, funny crowd. This time it pokes fun at people who bring their computers into Starbucks. Usually people bring laptops, not these folks. Funny, enjoy!
Well the font is coming along swimmingly. (pun intended) We have three coats of sealant on the interior. The mosaic is moving right along. Thank for all who are making this project move well, and making it so special because of the work of all of you, our fellow parishioners, are doing. We should be done by Easter...keep praying.
So after the CSMG I flew out of DCA. I got there earlier than I needed in hopes of getting on an earlier flight, but none where had, no worries. I went to the Crown Room and relaxed. I also used their massage chair for a while and my back thanked me for the time in the massage chair. Anyway I needed lunch so I went to a bagel company named after a famous scientist called "Famous scientist last name, bro.'s" (notice how I am not saying their name???) Anyway I am a bit miffed so I would like to start a new meme for this blog titled : Stuff that bugs me.
Stuff that bugs me: #1: Not getting what you ordered...or better..."here is what you paid us for but we did not go through all the steps of putting it together like you wanted, so here go do it yourself."Let me explain. I went to that bagel place and ordered a Peanut butter & Jelly Bagel, toasted. Well it was a bagel, with peanut butter, toasted. I only realized that it did not have the jelly when I sat back down in the Crown Room to eat it. So I packed up all my stuff and went to find out why no jelly. When I got back down to that bagel store and asked about my jelly the young lady working said: "Oh", as she handed me three packets of jelly, "sorry about that. Have a good day." What??? No I paid you for a PB&J bagel, now that is what I want; I thought silently. But wha... But how... Didn I pay you for your labor to put it all together for me. The look on my face must have tipped her off that I was confused/upset so she said: "Oh, the knifes are at the end of the bar you can spread it on down there...Next customer please." I am sure I looked the part of a spoiled brat as I mumbled to myself and spread my jelly on my bagel. I thought, and not too unfounded I believe, that the PB&J bagel would have all parts already included, guess not...That just bugs me.

Well the big day will be here tomorrow, guess I should get some sleep huh? I and all the others from the CSMG will be off to the Hill to speak with our legislators. I will be going to a meeting with Senator Johnny Isakson. Archbishop Gregory will be giving us a talk and then a blessing before we go (when I say we I mean the whole CSMG) it will be good to have Archbishop Gregory here with us. The Archbishop will be going to meet other Senators and will have a meeting with Senator Saxby Chambliss. Keep us in your prayers and I will be more sporadic tomorrow with posts. Peace
This afternoon was powerful. Ms. Lesley-Anne Knight, Secretary general of Caritas Internationalis. She was wonderful and had the audience eating out of her hand. I was so touched by the way she approached many difficult issues. Caritas is truly blessed to have her as their leader. Here a couple photos (one with me as well).
Msgr Ray East being his charming self.
