> Glass igloos -- Lapland. ~ link (via)

I can't imagine living in Lapland. It's 70° in our house (so I can't turn on the heat), relatively low humidity, and my fingers are still cold! I'm ready for summer -- or at least spring. According to my calender, I apply the first fertilizer to the citrus in 46 days. It's coming!

The New American Bible, Revised Edition has been approved Cardinal Francis George, former president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, for publication and will be available on March 9th, Ash Wednesday. "The new translation aims for better accuracy, better adaptation to contemporary English, and easy singing or recitation of the Psalms..." (which seems somewhat moot since the revised edition is not approved for use in the mass.) ~ link

"The vitriol... Unfortunately...Arizona has become sorta' the capital. We have become the mecca for prejudice and bigotry..." ~ Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, a level-headed sheriff. I think I'd vote for this guy. BTW, this isn't the final judgement. We can still change. We don't have to be this way.

Yes, Pastor Brad. All eyes and ears are on Arizona. But really this is a United States issue, don't you think?
