80 Although typical for the time, I find Bosch's human figures to be rather static and wooden. But the imaginative images are vivid, sometimes disturbing, and that's the main interest for me. If nothing else they make the viewer wonder about the mind of the artist. According to Wiki, his works were popular in his lifetime.

The Wiki page shows a pen and ink sketch of birds in a tree which I think is more impressive as an example of his talent.

So, the new crock has 2.5 heads of cabbage in it, and it'll take another three weeks to fully ferment. A crockful of cabbage can be eaten in far less than a month.
Is rotating two crocks' worth of sauerkraut approaching counter-space-consumption absurdity?

I'm paraphrasing, but I once read a story about an old woman who asked her priest if dogs went to heaven. No, said the priest, they didn't because they were only animals and didn't have souls.

At that, the old woman cried, saying that she didn't want to go to heaven if her dog wasn't there, because her dog made her happy.

To which the priest, after a moment's reflection, said that we are taught that in Heaven there is perfect happiness, so if you couldn't be happy without your dog, then of course, your dog would go to Heaven.

162 Part of my interest in this painting is that it reflects a medieval thought that the Earth is relatively dark. It is God's love and power that provides light, and the ability to see and understand, as one ascends from the planet towards heaven.

It reminds me of CS Lewis' space trilogy where space is full of light, life and movement and the darkness is here on the planet.

The tribe in question had originally agreed to a route through the reservation with compensation of 175 million dollars over the life of the pipeline. Then they asked for more money. The pipeline company did not want to pay more. In the end, the agreement was broken and the pipeline was routed around the reservation. Then the tribe was suddenly concerned about the safety of the pipeline. They were satisfied with its safety when it ran through their land, but not when it went around.

The key to understanding beer, is to understand marketing.
Marketing adjusts your attitude about beer, as it does with som many things.

There are certainly differences in beer (some is bad, other beers are good), but marketing makes you want to at least try something.

Watch the old movie "Beer!" sometimes. Good for some laughs.

There is no reason to think dogs would not be found in Heaven, if you consider the matter from a Christian viewpoint. There is very little description of what Heaven is like in the Bible itself, some is found in Revelations, some in the Old Testament. But not a lot, considering the body of work. Most descriptions are passingly physical, but are mainly directed at emphasizing the Glory of God.

Plenty of places overseas where Heineken was the best of a bad lot.

Posted by: Can't Believe This Shit at July 16, 2020 10:02 AM (AuISE)

I believe that. Heineken is like Kronenbourg in France.

One
thing that irks me is that Euros mostly but other foreigners love to
make fun of "pissy" American beer. But if you travel to these countries,
including Spain, Italy, and France, they drink their local versions of
American style adjunct lagers. Hell we produce more craft beer than all
other countries combined. Try the beer in Korea, it would make Pabst
seem like Abita.

Sure
there are exceptions such as England, Germany, Belgium, and parts of
Bohemia. But I saw people pay a bunch of cash just to get into London
discos and drink American Bud. The places that really got me were
Spain and France. I hoped the Spanish would all be drinking Sherry and
the French red wine. No, go to their bars and they drink pale lagers.

I once walked into a London pub that had Guinness "Extra Cold" on tap. It was a pint of Guinness poured by a machine that topped it off with a shot of liquid nitrogen. For the Americans, I was told.

352 A very knowledgeable brewpub owner told me years ago that the best brewers in the world work for Anheuser-Busch. That comment floored me but he explained it. It takes incredible skill to make a product at that scale taste the same every time. You are dealing with an agricultural product so it is not easy to replicate it at that scale all the time.

Also, you have a beer that is in many ways is a blank canvass, It is has been shorn of anything that can offend. But the flip side is, since the beer is a blank canvass, it is impossible to hide any flaws.

Not to criticize the local craft brewer as of course they are the creative part of the industry. But if I am a local craft brewer, I can make a mistake here and there and then voila, I just invented something new. And if all else fails, dump in more hops.

Foster's.

Posted by: runner

Anyone testing positive automatically gets tested at least once more for verification, which are all counted as individual cases. One guy got 15 positive tests--all counted at positive cases.

Anyone who tests positive once but then negative on a verification test, the first test is still a positive case.

On the plus side this is pushing down the mortality to infection rate, which is why they stopped talking about it.

This is becoming apparent and will be a big plus for Trump, imho.

Yes. There's also a theory in some Evangelical Protestant denominations
that the two prophets in Revelations are also Moses and Elijah.

Posted by: Kris at July 16, 2020 10:28 AM (VQp/A)

I've seen it suggested the two prophets that return during the end
times may be Elijah and Enoch, because all men are appointed to die
once, which Moses has.



And the prophets of Revelation are both killed.

I had not heard that one about Enoch and you make a good point. The argument for Moses was that he was at the first revelation of Christ (the Transfiguration) and he will have a role in the second revelation too. Also together Moses and Elijah represent the Law and the Prophets (the totality of Scripture). All Scripture leads to the first coming of Christ (from a Christian POV) and Moses and Elijah will give legitimacy to the Second Coming too. They are also the two most important prophets.

Of course Matthew 17 creates some confusion, as Christ said Elijah had already returned and we did not recognize him.

If you take the perspective that Christ was referencing John the Baptist, then it seems as if Elijah would have died in the regular fashion.

If you take the perspective that John the Baptist was in the spirit of Elijah then it all gets quite confusing.

Posted by: Bitter Clinger at July 16, 2020 10:38 AM (kU/I0)

Iirc the book of Isaiah says the messiah will be named Emmanuel ie God with us and also is the prophecy which says Elijah will herald the arrival of the messiah. Since the name for Cheist is metaphorical, I think it is reasonable to assume that John is not literally Elijah reborn. It also violates the alliteration, John and Jesus, Peter and Paul, Enoch and Elijah.

Anyone testing positive automatically gets tested at least once more
for verification, which are all counted as individual cases. One guy
got 15 positive tests--all counted at positive cases.



Anyone who tests positive once but then negative on a verification test, the first test is still a positive case.



On the plus side this is pushing down the mortality to infection rate, which is why they stopped talking about it.



This is becoming apparent and will be a big plus for Trump, imho.


Posted by: Dirks Strewn DA 1977 at July 16, 2020 10:23 AM

From my limited understanding from two cases locally, you get tested every three days after your initial positive test. And you aren't considered "recovered" until you test negative three times in a row.


Now that could all be changed by now, but that is what was happening last month at least here locally. And you can bet your last dollar all of those positive tests were counted in the stats.

The Bible is a great tool to study symbolism and how it's developed and used. It's also interesting when you study the symbolism in the context of ancient Mesopotamia. When explaining infinite concepts to finite beings, God used what was available, what the people would already recognize, images that they were surrounded by. The four beast guarding the Throne is a good example.

I think that is a fair point.

But like anything that is man's understanding, that perspective is prone to be abused.

Where Jesus teaches in parables, He is clear that He is teaching in parables.

But where things are literal, they are literal.

I've been to more than one service where preachers wanted to modernize the miracles of Jesus in an effort to try to reconcile it with modern understanding.

Probably the worst abuse of this I've witnessed was a lady preacher at a Methodist Church that preached on the feeding of the 5000.

In her sermon, she suggested that during a break, all the women returned to their houses and gathered enough food to feed everyone, which was "miraculous" that they had enough between them.

I mean that's kind of exactly the opposite of what the passage discusses.

There's no way that you could tell those purchases apart from the honest ones.
Posted by: deplorable unperson - refuse to accept the Mask of the Beast at July 16, 2020 10:44 AM (RkalO)

An optimistic view, on a couple of points - first of all, there's no need for Soros and his minions to arm their followers through legal gun sales, they have the money and the organization to do it "off the books" whenever and wherever they want.

Second, on the topic of "don't judge a book by it's cover" - rate people by their actions, not their looks. Especially in rougher areas, people of sense dress and look in ways that they blend in with their neighbors, and don't catch any grief from their families. But those buying guns are going to be men who, no matter how they look on the outside, realize that things might be getting pretty sporty soon, and nobody is going to be looking out for them or anyone around them besides themselves.

That doesn't make them our allies, but it doesn't make them enemies, either.

563 543 371 Generally Catholic theology holds that Heaven has physicality as we'll be there with our transfigured bodies after the Final Judgment, and some people already are. Mary, and possibly Enoch and Elijah as well(possibly more unknown individuals)

So, the Biblical elite get transfigured into physical form while the rest is have to be happy being just spiritual vapors. Sounds familiar.

Posted by: Sooner - White Blue-eyed Debil at July 16, 2020 10:55 AM (Fs5vw)

Strictly speaking I don't think it's agreed upon whether their bodies are yet transfigured or still in their original state in some fashion. Everyone gets reunited with their bodies and transfigured in the end though. It's why Catholicism generally isn't on board with cremation and such. There may be some intrinsic purpose regarding Enoch and Elijah though.

567 Probably the worst abuse of this I've witnessed was a lady preacher at a Methodist Church that preached on the feeding of the 5000.

In her sermon, she suggested that during a break, all the women returned to their houses and gathered enough food to feed everyone, which was "miraculous" that they had enough between them.

I mean that's kind of exactly the opposite of what the passage discusses.

575 Personally I don't try to decipher much of the detail of the Bible but rather take the general view provided by Jesus of his purpose while on earth and his future return which he advised that no one knows when that will happen except the Father. Every thing else is just a scholarship endeavor.

That was just the were the bottled it. The brewery was across the street at the statue.

The statue was and is in Jackson Square. No brewery there. And Falstaff was a national brand, I thought, out of St. Loouis?

I have heard that the Regal brewery was on Bourbon Street, the 400 block, where one of the hotels that swarm everywhere in the Quarter is now. And Dixie was on Tulane Avenue, about halfway between the public library and where Tulane turns into Airline Highway (and where there was once a baseball park). Dixie has reopened in the suburbs; we've heard news stories, but the "news" people won't give the address on air, they expect you to look it up.

603 It's why Catholicism generally isn't on board with cremation and such.
It's allowed now, as for my mom, but the remains have to buried in the same (consecrated) place with no spreading the ashes or keeping them in e.g. an urn on the mantelpiece allowed.

The original ban on cremation was due to an early heretical sect practicing cremation; and in the 19th Century (into the 20th?) there was an anticlerical intellectual movement that denied the physical resurrection on the Last Day and chose cremation and spreading the ashes as an abjuration of Church teaching.

611 598 Who thinks Eye of the Needle is a small arched passage way into the city? Or that it was a literal eye of the needle?

My position is it doesn't matter.

======================

I have often considered Matthew's statement that the rich man departed in sadness because he had great possessions (e.g. wealth for the sake of wealth) maybe more validly interpreted as he had great responsibilities as a result of amassing his wealth. Is isn't a stretch to speculate he, as an apparently well intentioned man, had many people whose livelihoods he was directly responsible for sustaining and selling all he had would take a massive leap of faith for the continued well-being of those in his charge.

Jesus' clarification that "With G-d all things are possible" provides comfort because he knows the heart, even of someone with great worldly possessions, and their motivations.

However, if the rich man had understood to whom he was speaking then he could have followed Jesus' directive in full knowledge and faith in the power of the almighty. That this extension of the discussion (as in, apparently didn't occur) may say all that need be said.

But whatever, its the keeping of commands that will filter out the vast majority. "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself" is gonna be a real stumbling block in the coming darkness, never mind the lesser aspects of the walk that I personally have already failed at in 60+ years on this planet.

Sorry to preach. Forgive me if I have offended.

The text from Matthew 19:

16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,

19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?

26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
