I voted for Serbia but franly I was expecting Sweden to win.

I can't believe Russia beated Italy. Nor the really, really bad joke about Russians giving 12 points to themselves.

Pardon for a serious sidenote, but this might be of interest for many here. A dissertation concerning the hymns for Entrance of the Mother of God.

It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

My country just turned into OC.net. We have a new goverment around here. With anti-EU foreign minister, an anti-vaccinations health minister and a justice minister who is for death penalty and a finance minister who wants spending cuts to social services.

Hey, maybe I should immigrate to your country. Bulgaria?
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

it would be kinda cool to have a thread of recordings to hear other peoples voices.  I imagine that Gebre sounds like Bob Marley. It makes reading his posts sound awesome. I think Kissel probably sounds like Hulk Hogan. As for kelly? I'm  pretty sure she is just a squeaky mouse IRL.

Generally I have a very quiet, monotone speaking voice/level/tone. It's sometimes embarrassing, and I can speak well when I want to make the effort... I just normally don't bother.

Cut the grass on a small plot this morning using a scythe a thing I kinda like doing every now and then.

Isn't that difficult?

It is, and damaging to hands as well. But gives satisfation when you finally learn how to do it.

A grumpy Finn calling here. I spent overnight stayed in a hostel in another city. The kitchen was right next to my room so I woke up for a friendly chitchat in the morning. Assumingly foreigners as Finns don't talk to each other except in sauna or while drunk. First they take our women, then they take our jobs and they disrupt my morning with their weirdo customs. Bloody foreigners.

Good heavens I just saw that disgusting Bruce Jenner magazine cover.

This is the end of civilization.

You mean the regular covers aren't disgusting? What's wrong with you?

It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

I find just about every photo taken by Annie Leibovitz to be tacky, tastless and disgusting. I have no idea why she is considered a great photographer.
God bless!

I couldn't tell if it was a real photograph or purely a digital painting. Usually cover photos are photoshopped so well that you don't get an uncanny feeling, this one however...

Because it reminds me of my oldest brother, who lives in Alaska with his family. For awhile he worked for the CIA while in the Air Force.

The best part of Pentecost this year was the reading from the Synaxarion:

Quote
Holy Martyr Philosophus suffered for Christ in Alexandria during the persecution by the emperor Decius (249-251). They urged the youth to deny Christ, but he remained steadfast.

After suffering various tortures, he was placed on a soft bed, bound hand and foot, and a harlot was put in the room with him to tempt him to sin. In order not to yield to sin, the saint bit off his tongue and spit it in the harlot’s face. She was so horrified that she fled from him. The executioners, seeing the martyr’s bravery and fearlessness, beheaded the saint with a sword

Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.
