St Dalfour goodies are divine. Not cheap, but divine.  Kiss

Quoted for truth. (The proof is in slathering slices of chocolate sponge cake with their black cherry preserve and topping with whipped cream. Faux Black Forest never turned out better. angel)

Well I guess Rosaries are fine, although I find some of the designs on the beads to be creepy and frightening. But given that most people around here just wear them around their necks like idiots, I have trouble interpreting them as something sacred. They seem like cheap knick-knacks that cholos with shirts to their knees and slicked-back hair wear around their necks.

I still don't get Western religious art though, especially the Mexican American kind. It's all pretty ugly and creepy to me. I don't like the realism involved.

EDIT: I even find Russian Icons with their Western influence to be ugly due to the realism.

Looks really nice. My own spiritual condition becomes pretty obvious to me when I can barely sit through a 6 minute movie trailer about a stylite without fast forwarding...  Tongue

Fasting resurrection! Mmmmm.


French Rapsodie?  Surely that is some sort of western heresy.

I find that Latinoamerican Catholic art, from church architecture to statuary to rosary bead crafting, remains a lot more Baroque in design than elsewhere. It can strike me in a variety of ways, from overwhelming to simply tacky, but frightening? No, not really. Those pillar candles in the plastic cases with saints' pictures all around? You'll find them all over Greece as well, in every cemetery shop. (They're exceptionally good for bringing the Paschal light home, too.) Also, I've always been fond of those naturalistic angels; they may not be high art, but they work well to capture a child's attention. And of course I adore rosaries, especially those with quaint beads, and now I'll have to go looking to expand my collection again! Grin

New York is joining the other Mid-Atlantic states in the takedown of Atlantic City when the New York Gaming Facility Location Board on Thursday issued 3 licenses to entities that will operate casinos in NY's upstate region.  Indian casinos are already operating in NY.

Montreign predicts $301.6 million in gaming revenues and $103.4 million in gaming tax revenues in 2019.

Rivers Casino and Resort won in Schenectady with a proposal for a $300.1 million resort and 50,000-square-foot (4,645-square-metre) casino. Rivers forecasts $222.5 million of gaming revenues and $82.1 million in gaming tax revenues in 2019.

Is Orthodoxy the same way in certain regions and demographics? Is there a such thing as "village Orthodoxy" where ethnic superstition and witchcraft gets mixed with the religion and we see all the creepy paraphernalia and apparitions?

Oh, yeah.

Naw, pews are heresy.  Marmalade is not.  It's actually quite tasty.
