My digital scale at home always has me weighing 3-5 lbs. less than the scale at my Doctor's office. I choose to believe that despite all the equipment he has in his office, the Doctor simply bought an inferior scale.

My scale has turned into a random number generator. Additionally, unless my invisible friend is trying to weigh herself, the scale randomly displays a number when no one is standing on it. I'm done with the digital age. Now accepting applications for pen pals.

You have a whole internet discussion board full of them, ZZ---OC.net!! Grin  On further thought, I guess technically none of us here are pen pals as we do all this verbiage on a keyboard, not with real pens.  Do people under the age of 30 know what a real pen is, and how to use it?

Real pen looks like:


But there are many varieties of them. Cool

I like printing stuff out and writing notes on the papers, and then typing the notes into the computer. I feel that it helps both the pen and the printer ink industries and I am doing my part to help the economy.

I wouldn't mind another digital scale provided it actually works. Although I have had this one for awhile... it was bound to kick the bucket eventually.

hey guys,

what is the letter called, where it is like a fancy "f" but it is curved, and is pronounced like an "s"

I look all over the internet but cannot find it, since i cannot type it!

it is usually used in old english books,

such as, one would write "Chrift" instead of "Christ" but the f would be more curved at the bottom and slightly at an angle

It was never an "f".

Troparion of St Stylian - The 3rd Tone

Holy Stylian, thou wast a tower of abstinence/ and an unshaken pillar of the Church./ Dedicated to God from thy youth,/ thou didst become a dwelling-place of the Spirit./ O righteous Father, intercede with Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.

Troparion of St Nikon - The 3rd Tone

Sparta rejoices in holding the shrine of thy relics,/ a source of healing for those who run to thee./ Holy Nikon, intercede with Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.

Kontakion of St Stylian - The 4th Tone

Sanctified from the womb like another Samuel,/ thou didst glorify God by thy labours./ Thou didst become a healer/ and protector of Christ's babes and sucklings./ He has glorified thee, O Stylian.

Kontakion of St Nikon - The 6th Tone/Plagal of the Second

Thou didst despise the world's delights,/ thou didst show us the path of repentance, emulating the Angelic life./ O Nikon, we praise thee and celebrate thy memory;/ thou art a fountain of healing.

A month ago I suggested that if we were able to push through about 700 posts/day we'd finally have a month cross the 20,000 post milestone.  October disappointed, but November has promise still.  If we average just about 733/day for the rest of this week we can reach the milestone.

As my post count shows, I obviously have no problem "helping" things along in this respect  Grin.  Now, maybe I've missed it, but why the goal-orientation regarding achieving a specified number of posts each month?  What happens as a result of reaching a particular "milestone"?

Staying true to his peasant roots is  big part of it.

How one does stays true to his/her peasant roots?

"There is no hope in returning to a traditional faith after it has once been abandoned, since the essential condition in the holder of a traditional faith is that he should not know he is a traditionalist."

(Al Ghazali apud E.R. Dodds, The Greeks and the Irrational)

That reminds of how I haven't stayed true to my roots. From rural Pentecostalist blue-collar family to aspiring urban Orthodox white-collar career with an academic degree. All this because of Scandinavian Socialism which in itself is an anti-traditionalist phenomenon.

Oh well. Could be worse. angel

Why thank you. I've still yet to graduate (Embarrassed) and become a leftist though. It's fun to be politically and religiously conservative with this kind of background.

Obsessing over tradition is itself a modern phenomenon. As far as we can say at least.  
And i've heard these things for over a decade i'd say usually from people trying to somehow find a way to be "traditionalist" but smart enough to see what the problems with this quest are.

the talk about tradition within the context of orthodoxy (in the west especially). buyt then again, I've seen similar phenomena (cartoonish traditionalism) in the East as well.
