Leslie: Thanksgiving is for doing whatever your tradition and personal preferences lean to. Don't let these anti-marshmallow folks get to you. (Personally I don't even like sweet potatoes--but I do like toasted marshmallows!)
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
Re SHOE THEFT: Wow! That brave, levelheaded woman is a hero, and one who defeated armed robbers without using a gun herself. Take that, gun nuts!
eLwood: Here are two online resources with good suggestions for helping your sweet dog adjust:
My Golden Retriever has been diagnosed with cataracts, too, so I understand your worry!
Yet another reason to dislike this man.
The women nominally in charge at MSM are really steeped in the culture of silence that pervades the Roman Catholic denomination, aren't they? Can't stand a little sunshine.
John 8:32--And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.
Elwood: Since you asked for input, here's some from a retired public school music teacher (me):
For a person who is a beginner with these hangdrums, I would stick with one that has either the pentatonic or the Aeolian tuning. Why? because of the tunings shown, these two are the most familiar and accessible to our western ears. Your friend can always "graduate" to a more exotically-tuned one as his technique develops. Of course, if he is already experienced in other cultures' music (especially Asian), my thinking may be too conservative. At any rate, for sure choose one with the central low note, since some don't have that--and I think it sounds really cool!
Thanks for introducing me to this family of instruments, too! They have a lovely tone, don't they? The world is so full of interesting instruments to discover!
What a great gift you're giving him.
So from this lengthy epistle, Msgr Malone:
1. Advocates, and even mandates being a hypocrite (about contraception use);
2. Says that if one disagrees with his church's teachings one is considered disrespectful, and no matter if the person who disagrees has researched her statement, the research must be faulty since it disagrees.
His description of himself and his actions as "pastoral" is particularly grating. "Patriarchal" would be a better descriptor. So condescending, to the students and to the adults at the school, who are, of course, female.
