The Bingo Lady in the Commercial

I mentioned about that lady in the Loud n Clear commercial. One of the commercials had the lady missed the winning number. :/ But this long version has her win the game! Her winning card appears to have a simple diagonal pattern.

The Valley of the Sun

The Prediger and I are now here in the Phoenix area, and we are doing well. We are in an 55+ retirement community and it’s very nice, despite the mostly cloudy and showers. Arizona state law allows at least one married person over 55 to rent from an age-restricted community, so it was no problem…

The Priestly Rule of Discipline by George Wollenburg

The link to Pastor Wollenburg’s article is missing from it’s original site, so I’m posting it here. He was a good friend, so I wanted to keep one of his articles available so people can read it. And as an Inauguration Day bonus, here is an Obamicon version of Pastor George. “But you are a…

Good Luck, President Obama.

Congrats, and please don’t screw it up. My one advice: don’t go through with the Freedom of Choice Act, and please do not trash the Constitution. The guys of FARK has its Photoshop welcome for the new President. The following pic after the jump may cause seizures, so DO NOT click the link if you…

Experience Weird Crap without LSD!

I was wondering whether I am a Paleo-Libertarian when I stumbled to this Boston Globe article of hacking the brain so you can experience mind-altering illusions without using controlled substances. (Thanks LewRockwell.com!) Reminded me of that time in OSCON 08 when I tried on the Brain Machine goggles and saw weird things. I removed the…

Farewell to Father Neuhaus

Wayne and I received word from Pastor McCain that Father Richard John Neuhaus died yesterday.  We were floored at the news.  Wayne remembered him as his friend and Seminary summer session roommate. He attended Neuhaus’ Catholic ordination service years ago. I remember him as the catalyst that brought me and the Prediger together. At the…

Free Conference at my Church!

Redeemer Lutheran on Rudisill holds yearly liturgical conferences (St Michael’s, Lutheran Liturgy Brotherhood) in which we attend the Eucharist, discuss parts of the Liturgy, and ultimately learn how to explain to the laity about the meaning of the Liturgy. On January 19th, the day before the Fort Wayne Symposia, Redeemer will host a Free Conference…

Have Yourself a Very Merry Boxing Day.

I hope you had a great Christmas yesterday. If not, let me say that I hope that the New Year is much better for you. Since the Theologian household is composed of Mr Theologian, his wife and their doggie, our holiday is more quiet and less hectic. I would get some Chinese food, but several…

Ice Storm and Possible Outage

The ice storm we had knocked out the power from our neighbors across the street and our power lines are pulled down by broken icy tree branches. We still have power, but it is uncertain whether we will continue to have it. I’m typing this from my lappy as I do not want any rebooting…

Some Good Things about this Recession

The Consumerist has an article entitled “I Love The Recession Because The Things That Suck Are Dying”.  Among the suck list: those glass tower condos that are taking over the neighborhood (I’m looking at you, Miami Beach!) and stores like Sharper Image, Circuit City and Linens n Things.  (Disclaimer: I had a sweet Samsung MP3…

I’ve pwn3d the Catholics! ;)

Once in a while, the guys at Catholic Answers would do this “Who Wants to Be an Apologist?” contest and listeners would answer questions about Catholic theology and two harder questions about other theology. With each correct question, winners would receive a 25 buck certificate to their bookstore, up to 100 dollars. The Prediger would…

Churchill, Toklas, and the Christmas Tree

Today is Winston Churchill’s birthday, and for the past several years, that marks the day that the Theologian household puts up the Christmas tree. The good thing about the 30th of November is that it’s after Thanksgiving. I do not like the Christmas creep in which the stores would decorate as early as Halloween and…

Quiz yourself with the Civic Literacy Report

At the bowels of Fark, we enjoy interesting quizzes that makes us S-M-R-T and not D-M-U-B. The conservative Intercollegiate Studies Institute published a report revealing that many Americans do not have strong civic awareness. They even have its quiz online so you can gauge your own ability. I got 93.94% on that quiz…got bit on…
