Big Bootay - Ex-Bishop John-David Schofield at work
Well I believe this is historical, because it pertains to my religion, so here goes....
These are facts coming out of the Diocese of San Joaquin, ....Part of The Episcopal Church U.S.A.
This in an update on St. Nicholas, Atwater. The following e-mail was received on Christmas morning:
Dear Jo and Deacon Buck,
The attached document is the letter notifying Fr. Risard that his
deployment at St. Nicholas is now over. We wish you to know that the
Bishop and the Diocese are fully behind the continuation of your church in
Atwater and will do all that we are able to support you during this
There are many details to take care of, and many questions which you
probably have for the Bishop or me.
The most important Directions from the Bishop to accomplish immediately
Change the exterior locks immediately, including the interior lock to the
priest's offices and any file cabinets.
Retrieve the bank statements of any accounts that Fr. Risard had signature
authority to: the discretionary account, and any other accounts.
Notify me of any minutes from past Bishop's Committee meetings for the
past three months and forward them to me. This is especially important if
there are commitments made to Mr. Michael Glass, an attorney referenced in
the letter of Fr. Risard to the Bishop.
We will assume that the Deacon will be able to lead worship for a short
period of time, especially this next Sunday. Reserved sacrament will be
provided by the Rural Dean, Fr. Ron Parry, or by me if necessary.
Our prayers are with you during this time of transition.
The Rev. Canon Bill Gandenberger
Fr. Fred has removed himself from the church building, but is reorganizing the mission to meet in another location. This will match what is happening in Turlock, Bakersfield, and other places. We who are loyal to the Episcopal Church will continue to support Fr. Fred and his congregation.

This was posted on another blog: Father Jake Stops the World , of which there is a link in my sidebar.
This EVILNESS cannot be tolerated within any organized religion....as far as I'm concerned.

Hard Drive Upgrades
I didn't get anything for Christmas....as usual. But I am purchasing a new hard drive for my PC, as I've about used up it's 60GB, mostly on music storage. I'm thinking maybe 1TB, but if not that at least 360GB.
Now I don't know if I want an internal or external hard drive, though I'm thinking internal will be faster. I had thought about burning all my music files to DVD, then wiping the hard drive clean, but then if I wanted to burn or remix I'd have to find everything, and I'm not into pain in the ass computing. I rather enjoy speedy computing, though my PC is usually on all the time...I don't keep my LAC on, I don't trust an always on connection...never know what back door files may have been inadvertently downloaded...though I do trust my McAfee, better to be safe than sorry.

He is my Savior!!
Full Pipe Organ!!
He's in no hurry!!
A slow Christmas makes His Light Happy!!
. . .. . . .how slow is to slow?!?
Christ's slow is slower than U know!!
For Unto Us A Child Is Born . . .
There was a child born oh so long ago in a city called Bethlehem, he was to be the Savior of the world. But I believe that certain factions within this world, are not content with true faith, they want to make his truth come much faster than God has planned.
And as such, they will be the losers. Because they are just the subservients of God. God chooses WHAT, WHERE, and WHEN, not them.
In the true Spirit of Christmas, ....> Our Father, Who Art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name, the Kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven, Give us this day our daily bread, and FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES, AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAVE TRESPASSED AGAINST US, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil....
For thine is the Kingdom, The Power, and Glory for ever and ever ....Amen.

The Countdown Begins
Wednesday, December 19, 2007
I was watching some awful tattoo show on A&E tonight while I was eating my stuffed crust Pizza Hut pizza, and I had approx. 24 mins. to kill till Boston Legal was on, so I flipped on Toon and the tail end of the original Dr.Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas was on. The one with my old bud Boris Karloff narrating.
And for some unknown reason tears started to stream from my eyes. I instantly thought of my mother, and being a kid watching the same show and being in awe of it, way back in the early 70's in Ann Arbor Michigan. It was an intense warm feeling that I haven't felt for a long time, and frankly I was overcome. (as I write this I'm getting the same reaction)
I also felt deep sorrow for letting my life experiences turn me into such a hard heart.
This time of year has always been very hard for me, since my mother past away some 21 years ago. It seems though the older I get the more depressed I get around Christmas time. I would probably be drinking some booze now, if I didn't have a chest cold. But I'm not up to getting walking pneumonia, ...anytime soon...lol.
This year though, I've been pretty much numb....between my bitching at Granny, and trying not go insane...living in this situation.
I still get a yearning for a good old family Christmas from time to time, but I'm guessing those years are going to just be good memories, and it's all been downhill since 1986.
