Got a nice egg pendant and gold chain in the mail today from ZealousZeal.  ;D :-*

You too?!

By last year I had to ask her to stop.  Not sure what I'm supposed to do with them all now.   ::)

You're welcome, everyone! Father G- you're supposed to wear them all at once on Pascha, obviously.

Then I'd look like a homeless biker version of Mr. T. with an egg fetish...    ;D

I might be visiting the Ukraine next spring. I shall walk from house to house and strongly recommend Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future by Fr. Seraphim Rose to everyone I meet.

There is only One Church buddy.

What is a 'Church buddy'? Is that like an 'accountability partner'? ???

I need to find a Church buddy. Going to an unfamiliar church on my own is all but impossible (as I found out twice when I had panic attacks and had to leave)!
I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

Here in my garage, just bought this new Lamborghini here. It’s fun to drive up here in the Hollywood hills. But you know what I like more than materialistic things? Knowledge. In fact, I’m a lot more proud of these seven new bookshelves that I had to get installed to hold two thousand new books that I bought. It’s like the billionaire Warren Buffett says, “the more you learn, the more you earn.”

Now maybe you’ve seen my TEDx talk where I talk about how I read a book a day. You know, I read a book a day not to show off it’s again about the knowledge. In fact, the real reason I keep this Lamborghini here is that it’s a reminder. A reminder that dreams are still possible, because it wasn’t that long ago that I was in a little town across the country sleeping on a couch in a mobile home with only forty seven dollars in my bank account. I didn’t have a college degree, I had no opportunities.

But you know what? Something happened that changed my life. I bumped into a mentor. And another mentor. And a few more mentors. I found five mentors. And they showed me what they did to become multimillionaires. Again, it’s not just about money, it’s about the good life; health, wealth, love and happiness. And so I record a little video, it’s actually on my website, you can click here on this video and it’ll take you to my website where I share three things that they taught me. Three things that you can implement today no matter where you are.

Now, this isn’t a “get rich quick” scheme. You know, like they say if things sound too good to be true they are too good to be true. I’m not promising you that tomorrow you’re gonna be able to go out and buy a Lamborghini. But what I am telling you is that it can happen faster than you think if you know the proven steps. So, I record a little two minute video on my website. Like I said, now it’s not the most professional I just shot it here with my iPhone, but it’s real. Nobody can argue, this is my true story. And I’m going to give you the three most important things you can do today. So click the link, go there it’s completely free to watch it it’s just a couple minutes. Invest in yourself. Always be curious. Don’t be a cynic. Okay, people see videos like this and they say “Ah that’s not real that’s for somebody else.”

Don’t listen, don’t listen. Be an optimist. Like, Conrad Hilton, the man who started Hilton Hotel, he said that he was only fifteen years old when he read a book by Helen Keller, and that book changed his life. Books can change your life. And in that book, Helen Keller said “optimism” so if you’re a cynic, if you’re a pessimist you don’t need to click here. Don’t worry about it, I don’t need to talk to everybody. But if you’re somebody who knows that there’s something better, cause the dream is possible, you know, for some of you watching it’s not necessarily a Lamborghini, maybe it’s a new job, a new opportunity, starting your own company.

Maybe it’s a new lifestyle without so much stress, traveling the world, doing those things you know you’re destined to do. You can do those unless you understand finances. Money, I don’t call it money anymore, I call it fuel units. You must have enough fuel units to live out your dream and to live out your destiny. So, I’ll see you on my website, it’s a quick video and you’ll see there absolutely free.

So just click this video and you’ll be taken there in a second, and uh, I’m excited to share this amazing stuff. You’ll see, not because of anything of me but because I’ve been fortunate enough to learn from mentors many years ahead of me. Not just in books like these, although I love books but also real in-person mentors. So let me share with you these three tips that have made all the difference in my life. They’re practical, you can do them today, you can start on them today. All right? See you there on my site.

I think a lot of things that weren't political now are, and that's rather sad.  After all, when you make something political, then you are putting politicians in charge of it.  Since I don't have much respect for politicians, you can imagine what I think of politicizing so many issues.

No, it's a bit like Fr. Giryus says:

The personal is increasingly politicized. Perhaps it was so all along.

And to think, we haven't even been married, which means I get to elicit negativity from someone without having to live with them!  Then again,  judging from Orthonorm's previous posts, this may be his little way of saying he loves me...    ;)

I ordered a news magazine. While reading the first issue I became a bit amused while thinking how terribly middle class it is to order a news magazine. Next thing is to buy a gun, a house and start channeling my inner Walt Kowalski.

The way I grew up, everybody had rifles and shotguns. For hunting and vermin. Of course this is America so probably you'd expect us all to own guns (it's actually not very common in town).

I have nephews who have owned "youth" firearms since they were four. The youngest, who was six in September, killed a deer last week.

And are you in Finland or America?

Four years old? I'm fine with guns around the farm, they're a very useful tool, but that's shocking.

It is and Fr Gyrus as usual is wrong. You would think the Church of Aristotle would understand the concept.

'As usual'....   Wow!

And to think, we haven't even been married, which means I get to elicit negativity from someone without having to live with them!  Then again,  judging from Orthonorm's previous posts, this may be his little way of saying he loves me...    ;)


For what it's worth, I find your comments very insightful when you agree with me.

I ordered a news magazine. While reading the first issue I became a bit amused while thinking how terribly middle class it is to order a news magazine. Next thing is to buy a gun, a house and start channeling my inner Walt Kowalski.

Polish people are weird.

Why do posters that claim to have me blocked keep sending me pms and responding to my posts? That makes no sense.

I've just looked at forum stats. It seems I'm the top thread starter and 5th in posting. How can I help myself?

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.

You know you want it ...

Only $3,000.00.
Shipping:  $60.90

How much does it weigh?

Book weight.  The guy is shipping expedited and probably tacks on insurance, so that would explain the shipping price.  If you have $3000 to spare for an old book, I think you can spring sixty more bucks.
