Brilko, there should be bears at the Bronx Zoo, which is not far from Fordham.

I like bears.

The Botanical Gardens is also close to the Bronx Zoo. The Gardens do not admit bears.

I often feel like this when seeing online discussions on religion.

I want to buy an ereader that isn't Kindle.

FWIW, ended up having Kobo's ereader. At least on my end it was a bit cheaper than Kindle and all of internet seemed to recommend it as the best non-Kindle.

I almost have too much light pollution to see comet Neowise, but I spotted it tonight.  I only have a pair of binoculars, so it was nothing compared to what you see on the Internet, but I thought it was neat seeing as it will not be back for 6,800 years or so.

A:  It was so good to take Communion after such a long time.
B:  I know, right?  Thank God.
C:  yOu DoN't TaKe CoMmUnIoN, yOu ReCeIvE cOmMuNiOn
B:  You take medicine, don't you?
A:  Awesome comeback, bro!
B:  Thanks.

High fives ensued.

This week is one of those "Why in the world did I get chickens?" weeks.   ::)
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

Pray for me, a wretched sinner.

I won a copy of "The Essential Desmond Tutu" on Ebay... it's now the littlest book I've ever owned. I'm guessing it was designed to easily be sold at airport gift shops and the like?

Also, I bet when I'm their age I'll move more like the Dalai Lama and less like Archbp. Tutu...

So I was at this local park and suddenly someone started to play trumpet almost right but just slightly out of tune. Just the right way in order to it sound super awkward. This brought me great joy.

I hope the Dalai Lama teaches Desmond Tutu to oppose abortion better than Desmond Tutu teaches him to dance.  ;)
