Since I have to take Devanee to rehearsals every Thursday night, I get to listen to much of the repertoire — though this fall I have been missing the first hour of each rehearsal since I take a leisurely one-hour walk through Wolfeboro in lieu of my morning run.

This oratorio gives you goose bumps. It is GOOD. I heard it again last night. My reaction was: ‘I am so lucky to get to hear this so often’.

Definitely try to make it to the concerts. We will be there.

Wow!

We have an account there though we don’t use it much at all. We bank with ‘Bank of America‘. Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) is ‘very nice’ but it is pretty basic. It is but a local bank.

This is a shame. I guess lot of people get paid, my check, on Thursday.

In 2007 or 2008 we were driving by when a bank in Farmington was getting robbed — and ‘dozens’ of police cars swooped in and all these armed policeman jumped out. It was pretty spectacular. There were no shots fired. We drove off after awhile without waiting to see how it ended. The kids were small and they were getting agitated.

I feel bad for the bank employees. Very nice, helpful, pleasant bunch. 

The ‘Lesus’ On Pope Francis’ Newly Minted Medal Was Neither Freudian Nor A Typo. It Was To Embarrass The Pope.

This was not a typo!

The Vatican City StatePhilatelic and Numismatic Office‘, one of the oldest mints in the world, does NOT make typos.

This was intentional. This was a DIG at the pope who is not popular among those that work in the Vatican given his crusade to reform the Vatican; i.e., interfere with the relatively cushy life that those that work for the Vatican have got used to.

The pope is all powerful within the Vatican.

There is no avenue or possibility for open dissent. It is not Washington D.C.

So Vatican workers have to be subtle and creative when they want to embarrass the pope. They can’t take a vote to shutdown the Vatican.

So, do NOT be fooled. This was not an error.

This was a bunch of SENIOR Vatican workers plotting, quite cleverly, to make sure that this pope, so popular with the media and the rank-and-file (though not bona fide conservative Catholics) has egg on face.
