JamesR always looks tired.

I guess that those cigars aren't regular cigars...
Special cigars, perhaps?  I only have regular cigars and pipe tobacco.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Being the eldest child does that to you
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.
In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.

I remember reading a book in which it was recounted that a certain elder (for some reason, my mind associates this story with Elder Joseph the Hesychast or Elder Paisios, but I could be wrong) commenced his nightly vigil with a cup of coffee.  If I'm not mistaken, he referred to it as a friend of vigils.  :)

He should have had two coffees and a shot. A much better mix.

You people always have such an exciting familylines. Am I only boring one here? AFAIK nothing foreign in my familyline during last few hundred years. Some forefathers had Russian-ish names but they were probably Finns/Karelians too.

There's really nothing too exciting about what our ancestors did to make us.  Pretty normal stuff, actually.  Not boring. ;)

I've never thought of it as exciting before. I don't get to check any cool boxes on official forms. Just "White/Caucasian". Boring. :P

If the bolded portion is what it means to be boring, then you are not alone.  I'm 100% South Indian jungle man for centuries.  To get the very small fraction of Palestinian/Aramean/Jewish/whatever that I suspect is in my family line, you basically have to go back to the first century AD or earlier.  So again, 100% boring jungle man here...

That's common in the old world. Same here. Not finnish obviously, but monoethnic, AFAIK.

Didn't know ZealosuZeal is Polish!

Well, but "pure" ethnicity is not so obvious even in the old world. That's not only me (Serbian, Polish, Montenegrin, grand-grand-grand-fathers inone line Rusyn something etc. I also suspect some oooooold Turkish or/and Arabic roots from my Serbian side :D), but I know some other people from my family and some my friends that has not so simply situation regarding ancestors.


It's probably my little "tradition" to present here my festal pictures. So, the:
First Christmas Day

Second Christmas Day

(I hope it works this way, as now I have problems with attaching)

In the background you can see my arrangement for the Nativity feast. The icon (I know, it's not canonical ;) maybe one day I'll buy bigger and more traditional one) is enveloped in a material brought from Romania, and the grass with the candle is a Serbian tradition, called žito; it's usually placed on a table and it's being grown up by the family ~two weeks before Christmas. Inside it a candle is put, and around the grass or the pot we tie a ribbon with the national colours.

Surely, we have also a Christmas Tree, because it has every Polish and Serbian family. However, we haven’t had any time badnjak (just google it, if you don’t know what is it), because it’s not possible to get a bran of oak tree in December in Poland.

Here is a neat picture from the big celebration of the 1,025-year anniversary of the Baptism of Rus' which was at St. Vladimir Memorial Church in Jackson, New Jersey this past July. Of the four priests there, I'm the second from the right. This was taken towards the end of Vigil on July 27, 2013.

Here is a neat picture from the big celebration of the 1,025-year anniversary of the Baptism of Rus' which was at St. Vladimir Memorial Church in Jackson, New Jersey this past July. Of the four priests there, I'm the second from the right. This was taken towards the end of Vigil on July 27, 2013.

Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
