don't try this stuff at home. Really don't try either one of them...Please!


I am in Marietta judging a speech and debate tournament. It is quite a bit of fun. I won't have time to post much today, sorry. Here is a cute video I found over at BoingBoing. It is an infernal machine that would frustrate me to no end...;-) Peace

More from Japan

This time not so weird...but flippin' sweet!



What is with the guy with the knife and his bandanna?

Take me out to the ballgame...

Out to the ballpark to see the Braves with three of the parishioners. Photos later. Peace

More Pope...WOW

No words are needed. Peace

Speaking of Faith

You already know that I really enjoy Speaking of Faith on NPR. This past Sunday was a really great episode. If you have the time go over and take a listen. I really have enjoyed listening to these different points of view on being faithful to the Gospel and living in a politically charged nation. Enjoy

From left to right, Chuck Colson and Greg Boyd listen to Shane Claiborne speak at a session of the National Pastors Convention. Krista Tippett conducted the interview.

It is happening again

You know this happened and basically right under our noses and almost nothing was done to help the people who were being affected. Now this...truly a sad time for us all. Let us pray we will have the courage to act to help and create change in this situation. Peace

Guess who was in DC?

Although they went a week before Pope Benedict XVI showed up, somehow John Shupenus was able to get a photo with the Holy Father. Here are some other photos from their trip to the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

Kit is closer than you think

This would be a fun toy to have. Although I am sure being in the car would give me more peace of mind. If all cars had this we could have more parking in smaller spaces and I could actually find a parking space close to the place I am going. Not sure it would help with the parking madness on Sunday.

Prayers for a priest

Watch this...even though you might not speak Portuguese

Now watch the video here and read the story as well.

I am sure this is a really tough time for the people involved. Let us keep them all in our prayers. I am sure some of you are thinking that I might do this kind of stunt...and you are correct. I hope they find the priest, soon. Updates when I have them. Peace

Trippy time

I just had to share this beautiful work. Go here and select Clock from the menu on the left. This is a piece done by Christiaan Postma. It is a clock that tells time in a most unique way. If you go to the 3rd slide in the series you will see the clock in action.

The word “three” completely appears when it’s exactly 3 o’clock and will then transform again as time passes. The word “four” begins to appear and at exactly 4 o’clock the word “four” is clearly visible. The word “three” is by then totally vanished and no longer readable.

Over 50...excursion

The Over 50 crowd went to the Monastery of Our Lady of the Holy Spirit last week (I was not invited) but they did get some great photos, thanks to the family of the D'Andrea's. Looks like it was a beautiful day and a great time was had by all. Enjoy

Thompson Baptism

Remember this post? Well I am finally getting around to posting some photos of the Baptism from that morning. Enjoy

Pure Fashion

I went to the Pure Fashion show yesterday, so that I could see some of our St. Matthew girls model some wonderful fashions. It was not just a fashion show, they had some inspirational speakers and some singers and a few dancers, they were even able to help fulfill a Make a Wish happen. It was a nice day with a bunch of young girls having the time of their lives...not so much for a guy my age, but it was still a good day. Our own Rhonda Boyle served as co-coordinator for the entire event, way to go Rhonda. Also good job to all the young women who represented St. Matthew, you did a great job! Here are some photos from the event. And below that you will find a video of the younger Ms. Boyle. Peace

Pope's Visit

I know lots of you like the American Idol kids, well here is Kelly Clarkson singing for the Pope the other day. I will post a few more videos as I find them. Peace

David Conley

You might have heard Deacon Bill mention David Conley in the homily this weekend. Some of you have seen David here on the blog (here and here). David took fourth place in the Lexus of South Atlanta, Star Performing Arts Competition. He won a nice $2000 scholarship, way to go David! Here is his performance from the event. He sang Caldara's Sebben Crudele and Scarlatti's Gia il Sole dal Gange. Enjoy

This is cool-ish

You should know by now that I hate coffee...but I had to share this because it is really cool. I am sure this matters to people who love coffee but for me it all the tech geeky-ness of it. Enjoy

I'm back

I know the posting has been a bit light recently but I am back, so open wide, there is lots to come today and tomorrow. Peace
