Ah, Saturday. The end of the week. And, for the fifth day in a row, DALANEL set a new viewing record. In fact, these past five days alone had more views than my best month in July 2013. November, if it keeps this pace, will absolutely destroy my viewing graph. If you use WordPress, you know what I mean. All of these little columns and then all of a sudden, there’s this huge column.
Anyway, let’s get through the post.
For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him. Philippians 1:29
The true Indian sets no price upon either his property or his labor. His generosity is limited only by his strength and ability. He regards it as an honor to be selected for difficult or dangerous service and would think it shameful to ask for any reward, saying rather: Let the person I serve express his thanks according to his own bringing up and his sense of honor. Ohiyesa of the Santee Sioux (Charles Alexander Eastman)
Now that’s gaming!
There was this old priest who got sick of all the people in his parish who kept confessing to adultery. One Sunday, in the pulpit, he said, “If I hear one more person confess to adultery, I’ll quit!” Well, everyone liked him, so they came up with a code word. Someone who had committed adultery would say they had “fallen”.
This seemed to satisfy the old priest and things went well, until the priest died at a ripe old age. About a week after the new priest arrived, he visited the Mayor of the town and seemed very concerned.
The priest said, “You have to do something about the sidewalks in town. When people come into the confessional, they keep talking about having fallen.”
The Mayor started to laugh, realizing that no-one had told the new priest about the code word.
Before the mayor could explain, the priest shook an accusing finger at the mayor and said, “I don’t know what you’re laughing about. Your wife fell three times this week.”

” you are.
Fact: In humans, the heart, liver, kidneys and other organs necessary for life, grow older and become less efficient. However, because tortoises and turtles make new cells, their organs do not wear out like human organs. This is why they live much longer on average than people do.
Holiday: Button Day
. The origins are unknown for this day. The link suggests you celebrate this day in any form you want as long as it involves buttons.
And so, that’s all for today. Have a good one.
