Quote of the Day

It’s my day off.  Because of the holidays it feels like I haven’t had one in a while.  My wife and I have been trying to think of something to do, with little success.  Suddenly, she comes running into the living room and says,

Do you want to shower and go get a Slurpee®?

I laughed.  Showering is a good idea.  So is the Slurpee®.  We’re off to 7-Eleven®

Wearing Hats

I’ve always been a fan of men wearing three-piece suits and hats.  I can’t afford to dress that way, but if I could I would.  Any way, recently the subject of women, hats and prayer came up.  Are women supposed to take off their hats during a prayer?  I’d always been told that men were, because that pertained to me, but nothing on when women should or not.

Enter Syndi Seid and her Advanced Etiquette.

Historically churches required women to wear hats or scarves. Now, it is not as required. However, some churches encourage women to wear hats, and in some places it has become quite a lovely display across the entire sanctuary. It is considered disrespectful for men to wear hats in a Christian church.

Traditionally, women wearing fashion hats are not required to take them off. That said, unless they are small and tight around the head, they too should be removed when at a dining table or in a theatre, sporting event, or other places where they may hamper someone’s view or be disruptive to others. Large hats are generally for the outdoors, not indoors. Think hat civility!

So, there you go.  I know you’ve just been dying to know that.

Quote of the Day

Speaking of Dracula, but equally applicable to the Devil –

In this enlightened age, when men believe not even what they see, the doubting of wise men would be his greatest strength.  It would be at once his sheath and his armor, and his weapons to destroy us, his enemies, who are willing to peril even our own souls for the safety of one we love – for the good of mankind, and for the honor and glory of God.

– Abraham Van Helsing

Quote of the Day

Remember that fisher cats are members of the weasel family, and weasels are the switchblade-carrying psychos of the animal world, the meanest creatures on the planet by aggression-level-to-body-weight ratio.
