Wow, 11,000! It boggles the mind.

Your daughter looks absolutely precious in that photo.
She's touring the facility/and picking up slack.

Isn't that you in the upper right?
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Yeah, that's me, my brother is in front of me, my mother in law is in the white shirt, my wife in the center making the strange face, my father is the guy to the left (he had the biggest beard there, and he's not even Orthodox  :D ), and then my daughter's Godmother Matushka A.

According to the time tracker thingy I've been on oc.net 194 days, 12 hours and 10 minutes. I don't know how long that's been kept track of, though, nor what exactly they are measuring. Also, I usually leave oc.net on even if I'm using another browser window to do something, or sometimes not at the computer at all, so I don't know how much time I've actually spent here. Apparently I average 3.67 posts per day since I registered in 2002...

For my 13,000th post I bring you... St. Paul of Thebes, the first Christian hermit...

Icon of St. Paul of Thebes...


St. Anthony visiting St. Paul of Thebes...


Info from wikipedia...

The legend according to Jerome's Vitae Patrum (Vita Pauli primi eremitae) is that, as a young man, Paul fled to the Theban desert during the persecution of Decius and Valerianus around 250 AD. He lived in the mountains of this desert in a cave near a clear spring and a palm tree, the leaves of which provided him with raiment and the fruit of which provided him with his only source of food till he was 43 years old, when a raven started bringing him half a loaf of bread daily. He would remain in that cave for the rest of his life, almost a hundred years. Jerome further related the meeting of Anthony the Great and Paul, when the latter was aged 113. They conversed with each other for one day and one night. When Anthony next visited him, Paul was dead. Anthony clothed him in a tunic which was a present from Athanasius of Alexandria and buried him, with two lions helping to dig the grave.

There is also an orthodoxwiki article which is more detailed, or you can read St. Jerome's original work here.

You'd have to post one every 9.6 seconds by my calculations (that's allowing you a full week).  I think your keyboard would start to smoke after a while.  ;D

....and on my 5000th post, I would like to introduce you to my mother!  A sweeter woman you will never meet!  :) 

This is from a few days ago on Mother's Day.

While most mom's were having brunch in some fancy restaurant, mine was patiently wheeling around the church hall in her wheelchair, waiting for me, as I cleaned the kitchen after cooking and serving lunch after Divine Liturgy.  Love you, mom!
