LOL...never even visited that monastery, to be honest, even though I drove by it several times after becoming orthodox. I just had too much inside information about the issues they had (let's just suffice it to say their file in the Tehama County sheriff's department is 3 inches thick)...I could never feel comfortable in a place like that.

I was watching that "Say Yes To the Dress" show. Yes, I'm bored. Anyway, so they had a wedding dress on there that cost $27,000. WTF!? 27k is a brand new car or a down payment on a house, not a dress. I guess I'm stuck in a lower-class-mentality, but who spends that kind of money on something like a dress? Even if I was a billionaire, I couldn't imagine doing that.

Ok, I yield the soap box.  angel

I'm actually talking about the Interstate north of Redding, CA...not LA. And no, it doesn't receive that much snow (which is largely why I think it was absurd to shut down the road, there may have been a foot of snow at the most), though the roads east and west of it through the mountains in the Cascades and Coastal Mountains, which I was forced to drive through, certainly do. And while if my responsibilities were in the region, I may very well have been excused because of the weather. But since they were in Idaho which was not affected by the storm, I was not...it's really not for the state to determine when I can and cannot drive, if I go to a remote area, get stuck, and get killed, that's my fault, no one else's.

Oops ... didn't see reference to Northern CA.   Embarrassed

The drifting snow (and possible avalanche dangers) is the issue - winds at near hurricane strength will create whiteout conditions and huge drifts - even though CA and OR have equipment which can blast through drifts and promptly reopen the road.

I-70 in CO west of Denver is another story with avalanche concerns.  Every mile or so had signs warning of avalanche dangers in the back country.  If people had GPS beacons as they traveled in backcountry areas, they would be found easier if something were to happen.  At least on the East Coast, avalanches are a non-factor.   Smiley

I agree. That is certainly not good stewardship and is conspicuous consumption of the worst sort. I'm afraid there are some very spoiled, selfish women in the world to spend money like that on a dress they'll only wear once when there is so much poverty and suffering the world.

My wife proposed to me a day or two after Valentine's day. However, most years that we were Orthodox we treated it pretty much like every other day. Ok, I'd get her a card and a rose or something like that, but we didn't make a big deal out of it.

my parents used to live on the western slope of the rockies...certainly familiar with the roads, interstate and back country, through the Colorado Rockies. They can be bad in winter, but ok if you use common sense.

Seriously!?!

I need to find me an Orthodox husband tout de suite!

I have many things that need to be fixed around the house.

The pipe beneath one of the two bathroom sinks is busted.  I tried to replace it, but, of the 6 pipes I ended up buying, none fit.  Their necks are too long, the angle of the curve is too tight...so, there it sits...unfixed for the last 4 weeks.

Yesterday, the light switch in the kitchen crackled as I turned on the lights....that one truly unnerves me.  I have to go to the basement...figure out which fuse to unscrew...then with flashlight in hand take a look and tighten the wires.

Then of course there's the sump pump...which for the last...oh 3 or more months has been emptying the water from the basement onto my front lawn...there's some kind of blockage on the way to the ditch and it was backing up into my basement.  The plumber came and he and his crew of 4 men were rather raunchy and extracted way too much money from me for what they did, and then when they gave me the figure to finish the job...I told them not to come back.  ;-)  Oops.  So, I have this white pipe popping out of the front of my house...pouring water straight onto my lawn...which this time of year....makes for a lovely ice rink some days.

Then there's.....oh well....too much to list!

Do people still fix things like that themselves? I thought that was a 1950's thing. I'd recommend googling a plumber and an electrician.

But your bathroom sink problem does sound fun, I wouldn't mind tackling that one, setting up boundaries conditions for the navier-stokes equation, then using genetic algorithms combined with numerical methods for solving differential equations to optimize the solution for various flow densities and pipe geometries, not neglecting back-flow, of course, which will introduce vector fields that could make the problem very interesting. You could also analyze various materials for the pipe and come up with the ideal alloy balanced to both prevent corrosion based chemical and physical properties and provide the ideal frictional coefficient to optimize flow of the most statistically likely fluid densities, taking into account worst case scenarios and a cost-benefit analysis, of course. Finally, you can perform a statistical analysis on production methods relative to cost to determine your ideal pipe and fitting. Then you can call a plumber to find and install a pipe that meets your specifications.

Hmmm...maybe I could get into do-it-yourself home repairs after all. Wink

But your bathroom sink problem does sound fun, I wouldn't mind tackling that one, setting up boundaries conditions for the navier-stokes equation, then using genetic algorithms combined with numerical methods for solving differential equations to optimize the solution for various flow densities and pipe geometries, not neglecting back-flow, of course, which will introduce vector fields that could make the problem very interesting. You could also analyze various materials for the pipe and come up with the ideal alloy balanced to both prevent corrosion based chemical and physical properties and provide the ideal frictional coefficient to optimize flow of the most statistically likely fluid densities, taking into account worst case scenarios and a cost-benefit analysis, of course. Finally, you can perform a statistical analysis on production methods relative to cost to determine your ideal pipe and fitting. Then you can call a plumber to find and install a pipe that meets your specifications.

Hmmm...maybe I could get into do-it-yourself home repairs after all. Wink

You're actually applying mathematics to everyday problems?  You've come so far! Wink

I know...I've spent way too much time writing engineering modeling software...and not nearly enough time proving mathematical theorems. Sad

Since the American Olympic Snowboard Team is wearing matching “show your boxer underwear” jeans, do they wear matching boxers?

I am much more talented than these snowboarders, but since I refused to wear those matching baggy jeans, I had to skip the Olympics this year.  Wink

Seraphim Rose speaks of reality:

It's always good to hear his voice.  I ask him for his prayers all of the time, and it's so nice to place a voice with the images.  Did anyone ever take any video of him?

I feel your pain, I was supposed to be a starting centreforward for the US hockey team but I have a phobia of ice and they simply refused to let us play on another surface, so I opted out. Wink

Why, in one post, do you complain about the teachings of John Wesley being posted on an Orthodox forum and, in another, you post things from fringe Protestant websites?

You make little sense and undermine your own credibility with each post.  As your brother in Christ, I beg you to stop before you cause serious spiritual harm to someone.

This is a Orthodox Christian thread, right?

We speak of 'random' things, meaning, anything which is random.

We, as christians are not supposed to be friends with this evil and temporal world:

James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

Gal. 1:4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

Col. 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

Col. 3:3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

Listen to this guy:

http://www.pantocrator.info/en/modules.php?name=Downloads

And this is St Dorotheos about Christ and Renunciation

http://www.philokalia.org/Abba%20Dorotheos/AD01.mp3

I don't know about you guys, but I have the fear of God.

hear St Dorotheos about the fear of God:

We must reach that 'Perfect fear' which he speaks of.

http://philokalia.org/Abba%20Dorotheos/AD04.MP3

Is. 2:1 the word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
Is. 2:2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
Is. 2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Is. 2:4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
Is. 2:5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.
Is. 2:6 Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.
Is. 2:7 Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots:
Is. 2:8 Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:
Is. 2:9 And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.
Is. 2:10 Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.
Is. 2:11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
Is. 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:
Is. 2:13 And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan,
Is. 2:14 And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up,
Is. 2:15 And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall,
Is. 2:16 And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures.
Is. 2:17 And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
Is. 2:18 And the idols he shall utterly abolish.
Is. 2:19 And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
Is. 2:20 In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;
Is. 2:21 To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
Is. 2:22 Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?

Things feel very edgy these days.

There's nothing inappropriate about posting what you've posted on this thread, since "Random" can include virtually anything.  However, you're very likely going to get goofy, playful replies to your posts if you put them here, since that's what the Random Postings thread is about.  If you don't want your "Random Postings" posts to be taken seriously and goofy, playful replies is what you want, then go ahead and submit your serious-looking posts here.  But if you want more serious discussion of your posts, I advise you to submit them to a more serious thread than Random Postings.  That's all.
