That's not Freudianism and it's not meant as an academic exercise. And you are the one that will have to fill in the gaps; that is part of living our lives.
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

Ur post is a joke. Three people who know me as well as anyone post here. If you had struck anywhere near pay dirt I would've given you at least partial remuneration.

And it's Freudian for you. You clearly have shown no more than a passing acquaintance with any understanding of the psyche.

Gave you an open door and nothing, sorta disappointing.

:( Stopped at 2 stores tonight after Vigil, neither had any eggnog left. I was initially surprised when it was still available this late, but I have gotten at this time the past few years. It seems they start selling it in the middle of November before Thanksgiving. Now I'll have to think of something else to do with the spiced rum tomorrow, ... perhaps flip.

This is the last eggnog recipe you will ever need, so please don't ever bother with store bought eggnog again.

Thank you, delicious. I used all spiced rum rather than the rum/brandy mix it called for, quite easy too. Christ is born!

Glorify Him!  :)

You're welcome.  I've done that too, when I had no brandy (I typically use inexpensive E&J VSOP or XO - tasty for mixing).  I was using Cruzan spiced rum (another inexpensive and tasty option for mixing), but I recently got a bottle of Sailor Jerry and, wow, it's good; nice to even sip on its own.  I like to add a bit of ground cinnamon and ground cloves into the blender for more of that Christmas spice that floods my brain with fond memories.
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.

RIP Pierre Boulez and Gilbert Kaplan. The old baton guard is almost all gone.


I own quite a few CD's conducted by Boulez.

He once mistakenly called Paul Simon "Al" at a party, and the rest was history.

Since I was a child, that song has made me a bit sad. If you can figure out why, I'll write you a check for $2000, for saving me decades of therapy.

This is the last mystery of life.

Thank you.

This is how I feel about "Saturday in the Park" by Chicago. Why?!

There are several songs that make me feel that way. Most of them are either late-90s/early2000s pop songs that remind me of when I was growing up, or older songs that remind me of someone in particular.

Experiment: A man appears on our television urging us not to worry and to be happy.
Result: We smile and become happy.
Conclusion: Television song video productions with a positive and upbeat message makes us positive and upbeat. More research in this area of study is needed.

I had Carl jr after visiting Grandma yesterday, since I'm not offically Orthodox yet meat is ok for me. There a deal right now for the Big Carl w/ fries, and a large drink for     $5.50, I also subsituted the fries with fried Zuchinnisw/ Ranch. Carl Jr beats McDonalds, Burger King, and edges out Jack In The Box for best fast food.

Ah another thing, all Doritos flavors except the original are terrible. Yep that includes Cooler Ranch, despise it.

If I can get a Dorito that can taste like the Cheetos Jalepeno flavor, win win.

OH and round cheese puffs in general are trash.

But this right here:

Carl Jr had a Capn Crunch Milkshake was like the fire from olympus, but they got rid of it, as always the case whenever something incredible comes out.

Jack in Box sucks, BK sucks, and McDonalds is McDonalds.

Fast food burger wise, just make it at home. Takes only a couple of minutes, I like em smashed on the cast iron using a heavy gauge spatula. But getting a good hamburger starts before you even cook it. If you want to get really serious you need a meat grinder and know how to get good meat. Make my own homemade fry sauce as well. If I buy a grill this summer that's what I'll probably use, I like the flavor a little better.

The problem with these higher end burger places that make you spend $9+ for a 4oz always miss the mark, it's either too undercooked and charred on the outside, too much seasoning mixed in with the meat during prep, cooks inability to distinguish what a medium rare patty is supposed to look like, etc. Yeah if you are going to charge me some serious change you better bring your A game.

What can I say, I grew up in the burger mecca of America. We had burger places for days, literally any kind of burger you can imagine, we had a restaurant for it. Your two choices where I lived were chain restaurants (Applebees, Olive Garden, etc) and burger places (varies and by $$$$). I still don't know why burgers were so crazy popular in the "healthiest" state in the country.

And people who put a salad on their patty, please GTHO. Trying to disguise a crappy patty, no thanks.

Although I like the oddball-this-should-give-me-an-instant-heart-attack burger. Imagine the triple bypass burger, but you had grilled cheese, little bit of a donut, mayo, extra cheese, bacon, a special ketchup sauce. Man out of this world, half of that must have been 5000 calories.

Some days I just want a greasy cheeseburger that I don't care how its prepared, some days I just want McDonalds.

So, what do you guys think about what happened in Germany on the New Year's Eve? As a Middle Eastern man, that makes me embarrassed but it would be wrong to generalize and kick all the refugees. Those who committed the crimes should be deported for sure.

Oh, yeah. I don't even consider the puffy ones to be actual Cheetos. It's like comparing Gnosticism with Christianity.

Apparently there'll be a Liturgy by the Antiochians in my home town at the end of the month. There isn't even an Antiochian parish in the entire country. I guess there had to be an upside to the refugee crisis. It'd be nice if the Antiochians sticked around.

I heard about the story on the news. Very disturbing but not surprising, after all it is Russia. He wanted to play tough and punched the guy because of the super sensitive "lady". Hope now he enjoys his time in jail.

I dunno, I agree on wanting actual news, but I am more and more suspicious of even respectable (or at least old school media) names. A lot of the clickbait stuff I get advertised as news or informational things are from places like the Forbes or Wall Street Journal sites (I forget which ones are the offenders offhand). But then you get to the site and find that the 1000 word story is broken up into 5 pages, or has 12 ads (including 2 video ones) all over each page, or is actually a series of 12 pictures with captions that you have to go through to read the story. oc.net is my trusted news source! None of that useless stuff here, and that's a fact!  8)  :o

FB is advertizing me a fairly good offer of digital edition of New York Times. It seemed like a good newspaper when I read one issue few months ago. A bit tempted try it for some time.
People pay to read the news? I would pay to keep it away from me.

I like proper journalism and gladly pay for it. It's the online clickbaits that bother me.
I encounter that so infrequently, that I don't recall what it looks like.

It's sparse here too but there are a few decent attempts at least. Also, I like the idea of newspaper provided of course the paper in question doesn't drive me nuts. Switched to another newspaper last year which fixed that issue. But you know, a good night sleep, slow morning and a good cup of coffee does miracles. Browsing some online news just isn't the same.

Anyway, it could be fun to read news from the US. We see them here too but the perspective is understandably fairly different.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

I've always wondered if people in Georgia the country like the song "Georgia on My Mind."

I can honestly say that that thought has not once ever crossed my mind.  :P

Not if trains run at midnight there? :P

Anyone pregnant? I found the perfect card for you.

https://www.yahoo.com/makers/delightfully-evil-baby-card-plays-225628549.html

Quote
On the outside, fancy script reads, “A baby is God’s sweetest gift” above a photo of a cherubic, sleeping newborn. So far, it’s a typical sappy baby card.

But wait.

Open it and you’re greeted with text that says, “The gift that keeps on giving.” There’s space for a message too.

So far, so good.

There’s also a tempting little button to press, which your unknowing victim will undoubtedly do. And when he or she does, the card plays the sound of a crying baby.

And not just hiccupy, soft baby sobs, but harsh, scream-filled, angry cries.

And it’ll keep playing. For at least three hours. Without stopping.

Close the card and the crying continues. Push the button again and the crying gets louder. Keep pushing the button and it increases in volume up to four times! The crying continues until the card’s batteries run out or the victim destroys the card.
God bless!

The Beatles wondered the same thing....
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.
