  1. Watched it when it came out. Was thinking it was prescient.
  2. Some stupid pastor in Floriduuuuh held a service for his 4000 member some- kind -of -church in violation of county emergency ordinances and got his dumb self arrested. Hope they quarantine his whole flock,too.
  3. I would welcome you all into the One True Church, but it's locked, so.....
  4. Well, I'm Catholic and the early church had plenty of them. Ascetics. The monks still take vows of poverty. There are two sacraments of vocation in the Church : Holy Orders ( the priesthood and diaconate) and Marriage. Considering the ruling on birth control ( leaving aside the fact that plenty of Catholics ignore it) ,I've always felt that a vow of poverty should be tacked right on to those wedding vows.
  5. Same here. Fortunately, no one has died here for a few months.
  6. @notme My husband makes it a point to buy one more of certain necessary items ( like toilet paper, shampoo, soap, water,etc. )than we need when he shops. Just one, but over time it stocks a pantry. So we're okay for now. Every few years the roads become impassable for a bit due to one or more natural disasters, so he has developed the habit. I am not as good at that as he is. Our oldest son is a regular" Boy Scout". He probably has a bug-out bag ready at all times. Meanwhile DD is running around being Nurse Nancy, spraying anything new that comes into the house with homemade disinfectant and taking everyone's temperature on the daily. All of them are making sure their father and I remain under "house arrest". Adult children are fun. I thought they left you alone more. They do not. I'm glad they love us, but it's a bit like when they were little and you were trying to take a shower or something and they woke up from the nap and were banging on the door. I can't do anything without going through them first. My life is now ruled by a committee.
  7. ^It's hard to beat an incumbent. But this Virus/ Potential Economic Crisis has shuffled the cards. So now I don't know.
  8. Retired....but still busy.
  9. No, a few good rounds on the "shooting range" always make me feel much better...
  10. @hasanhh Any number of reasons. I'm more interested in the reactions to it.
  11. Notice: Now the church is just locked up. You can watch your priest on you-tube I guess. Weddings,etc. are postponed. No public Easter celebration. The priests have, however, been taking the Processional Cross and Blessed Sacrament through the streets praying for protection from the virus. Everyone stays inside and listens for them. Looks vaguely medieval, but is interesting and comforting.
  12. Yes,but they set in really well. Hope you are feeling better.
  13. All of SG's family have their actual names and " Christian" ones. Even the Christian. Which you use depends on whatever problem you find yourself in, I guess. I have been known to use my SIL's alternative name in what I consider hostile territory.
  14. With Tara Reade's story gaining traction, who knows what will happen?
