The Saturday Morning Coffee Break & Prayer Revival

cbdcoffee.jpg


He may not know how to eat French Toast properly. But CBD certainly does deserve a H/T for this morning's mug.


Holy Crap, December 2nd. Only 22 shopping days left until Christmas. Before you go shopping today, just a few friendly reminders. (Rulz for those of you in Slab City, WI)

1) This is an open thread. Feel free to lurk, opine and/or bloviate.
2) Play nicely with others.
3) Placing a cut body part into the snow bank will ease the pain.
D) Have a nice weekend.

***


Thanks to Annie for sharing today's Prayer Revival with us.

AoSHQ Weekly Prayer List

Please submit any prayer requests to me, “Annie’s Stew” at apaslo atsign hotmail dot com. Prayer requests are generally removed after four weeks unless we receive an update.

Prayer Requests:

10/20 – SB asked for prayers for his mother. She is in end-of-life care now. Prayers for his father are needed as well.
11/18 Update – Mom passed peacefully with her family around her. Continued prayers for SB’s father are appreciated.

10/21 – Sugar Plum Fairy asked for prayers for her dad, Mindful Webworker, as he has been pretty sick for the last few days. Prayers for recovery to full health and strength, and wisdom for her mom to help him would be appreciated.
10/28 Update – Mindful Webworker had an emergency surgery and is recovering well. They are not sure what happened, and tests are underway, but so far his prognosis is good. He is in good spirits and is recovering well. She sends thanks from the whole family for the prayers, and a special thanks to Muldoon for the limerick, which brought laughter to some dark days. Please keep praying, and thanks and glory to God for the doctors saving dad’s life.
11/18 Update – He is scheduled to have surgery the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, but for now, he is out of the hospital and home, where the coffee is good! Milady Jo could use some prayers, as she will be getting hip replacement surgery in Dec.

10/28 – FenelonSpoke thanked the people who prayed for her township open space committee to buy land from her church. It has been approved. Now they just have to have enough money to last until this is all settled.
11/4 – She thanks God that the township voted to buy their land at the church.

11/4 – Half Dozen sent thanks to the Horde for the prayers, and gave an update on his son’s health. He had a large tumor removed from the center of his brain stem in March. Then there was a month of rehab in the hospital, and on-going therapy to re-learn how to walk. He also had 6 weeks of radiation and chemo, just to be sure. He has returned to work part-time. Progress has been slow but steady. Small things wear him out quickly. His paralyzed vocal cord still has not recovered, so he speaks in a rough whisper, and his voice gives out before the end of each day. Next week, they will all be walking in the city’s 5K with him. It will be exhausting, but a good day nonetheless.

11/4 – Oddbob asked for prayers for his granddaughter. Without going into details, please pray hard for baby E. Thank you.
11/18 Update – Baby E is doing much better, but please keep praying. She and her parents (and grandparents) will need them for the long haul.

11/4 – Creeper asked for prayers again for his friend “Q”. We had prayed for Q, who had a bad back, and then had a temporary nerve stimulator put in, which helped tremendously. They installed the permanent stimulator last week, and it was a disaster. He woke up in excruciating pain, running a low fever, and vomiting. A CT scan found an ileus. It seems to have been caused by the stimulator, and if it doesn’t clear on its own, he will have to have it removed.
11/18 Update – They turned the TENS off for a few days. Then when they turned it back on, it was a big success. Q has control over the machine and is learning it fast. He’s not pain free – he never will be – but he is very happy with “tolerable”. Thank you to the ‘rons and ‘ettes. You’re the best.

11/9 – JediArashi asked for prayers for his health and the meddling government situation related to pain medications. There are shortages already, and the DEA is “recommending” a reduction of 7.9%. He is a chronic pain patient and is terrified.

11/10 – Tonypete asked for prayers for Deb, Ben, and their little boy. Deb suffered a premature emergency birth of her long-prayed-for second baby. He did not survive. They are all heartbroken.

11/10 – Commissar of Plenty and Lysenko stuff sent his thanks for the prayers – that he didn’t even ask for yet! He had good news from the doctor yesterday. He will only have to have one surgery, not multiple.

11/14 – Jewells sent an update. She got the news that her cancer is progressing, and they are stopping the current treatment. They want to switch to monoclonal therapy as well as chemo. Prayers are appreciated, that the new drugs will work, and that the cancer has not spread.

11/15 – That Northerlurker what lurkd needs help. He commented that he is in the worst financial situation of his life, but the people in his town are reaching out to him to help. He added that the only thing worse than financial stress is asking for help.
11/19 Update That Northernlurker posted that he is on his first day of homelessness.

11/18 – Tonypete asked for prayers for the repose of the soul of B. He took his own life suddenly and without any apparent reason. He is greatly missed by his family, his classmates, and his teachers. He was an 8th grader.

11/18 – Hadrian the Seventh thanked everyone for the prayers for his sister. She came through her heart valve surgery with no problems and is recovering nicely.

11/18 – DMB had a job offer in Sarasota, FL that was withdrawn. God, in His providence, had better plans for DMB. He has now relocated to Ft. Lauderdale, and is still unpacking boxes, but started his new job this week! Praise be to God!

11/19 – FenelonSpoke requested prayers for a 2 month old baby named Lillian, who has a UTI and possible meningitis. Please pray for healing.

11/21 – BD asked for prayers for his brother Paul. Paul is very ill, and gets worse every day. He has had a long, painful, fight with congenital issues with his lymphatic system. He’s only 57 and deserved better. Please pray for a miracle and for his soul. BD thanks the people here who make his day every day, but recently it hasn’t been enough to overcome his sorrow.

11/22 – Fox2! requested prayers for his newborn great-nephew, J, who is in the NICU. He turned blue overnight. Please pray for him and his family.
11/18 Update – J is out of the hospital and progressing nicely. Thanks for the prayers.

11/18 – Fen asked for prayers for R, someone in her congregation. R’s dementia is making him angry and verbally abusive, which is hard for his daughters. R’s wife died several years ago. They are having trouble finding additional caregivers to help out. Prayers that rough places could be made smooth for this dear family are appreciated.

11/18 – Reforger asks for prayers for grandchild #2, prayers that he will begin to figure out that every time Papa says “you’re going to get hurt doing that”, he would listen instead of getting hurt ,and proving Papa right over and over again. Also, Reforger is afraid he will lose one of his best friends soon. She grew up in a smoking house and has smoked since she was 13, and a minor flu has turned into a 4 day stay in the hospital. Reforger is trying to quit, too.

11/18 – G asked for prayers for a friend’s wife (named Ileana), who is undergoing cancer surgery. Prayers for a successful outcome and a speedy recovery.

For submission guidelines and other relevant info, please contact Annie's Stew, who is managing the prayer list. You can contact her at apaslo at-sign hotmail dot com. If you see a prayer request posted in a thread comment, feel free to copy and paste it and e-mail it to Annie's Stew. She tries to keep up with the requests in the threads, but she's not here all of the time, so she may not see it unless you e-mail it to her. Please note: Prayer requests are generally removed after four weeks or so unless we receive an update.

2 Corinthians 4:8-9
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair, persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.

A long-term canned food storage anecdote:

All is well gastronomically. It looked and smelled and tasted fine upon opening and cooked up similar to a fresher can.

Only 22 shoplifting days until Christmas. Was watching the news yesterday about some proposed 'anti-ski mask' legislation in Philly. The video they showed was all of these youths, in the process of turning their lives around, breaking into a store with masks on. A little later they showed the youths exiting the store with flat screen televisions.

One of the exceptions the proposed legislation would allow is wearing a ski mask for a religious event. ???

19 Prayers up for those that have asked us for them;
Prayers up for those that know they need them but have not asked us for them;
Prayers up for those that need them but don’t know it yet; and
Prayers up for those who pray alone, asking in silence, and whose prayers are known but to God!

23 The rain has stopped, or maybe just has a truce with the city. I need to leave in about half an hour for haircut, library, and then whip around to pick up an Rx at the CVS in Target. And a new Tracfone card for more minutes.

Miss Linda wants to go to an open-house, or maybe it should be called "open-store," event in the uptown area tonight. This means crowds, difficult parking, and walking a couple of miles up and down to watch her sip some wine and eat cheese. I never want to buy anything at those $$$ stores.

Maybe it'll rain again and the thing will get postponed.

This is the first Christmas when all the kids are adults. At the same time, our grandkids are now staying with us, so there's some excitement there.

Combine that with tight finances, and we're going to be focusing on "nominal" Christmas presents, small gifts that excite and amuse rather than anything lavish. There is always some tension over this as my wife wants to "go big," but this year it's just not possible.

I'm using this to remind the family that Christmas is about God, not stuff. They seem quite receptive.

52 Speaking of THE college football playoffs, this year is absurd.

Apparently if Alabama (one loss to #7 Texas, undefeated in the SEC West, beaten 3 ranked teams) beats undefeated #1 overall Georgia (beaten 4 ranked teams) neither team will make the playoffs and instead the 11-1 Texas team, whose big win was over that same Alabama that just beat #1 Georgia, will get in.

Years ago there was much talk from the kids about striking out and seeing the world. That seems to have been cured by the pandemic. Middle kid was stuck in training from early November to late July, missing just about every holiday and birthday (including her own) and becoming terribly homesick. Even living a couple of hours away at college was too much. She came home and is now ready to get her own place - four minutes down the road.

The infection has caused an indefinite delay in further searching, as this individual is the key team member for the GPR analysis.

69 NY Times: Is Shoplifting Really Surging? Claims the U.S. is in a retail theft wave are exaggerated. Events in New York tend to receive outsize scrutiny...

Videos of extreme but rare crimes can go viral today...As a result, people can always find outlandish anecdotes, even if crime is down. Conservative media has promoted these videos as evidence of disorder in liberal cities and under President Biden.

Retailers have an interest in spreading the shoplifting narrative because it can suggest that disappointing profits are beyond their control. Inflation may play a role, too. Even if retail theft is not up, retailers might care more about it now. The rise in murder, car theft and some other crimes makes shoplifting seem like part of a larger story even if it isn’t in most cities.


Its the spectacular nature of recent theft that has spiked perceptions of a surge. Organized Shoplifting, where groups go into a store and steal together while wearing hoodies and covid masks are usually caught on security cameras. There's also PTSD from the organized theft rings that exploited the George Floyd protests. That absolutely outraged the bourgeoisie.

72 Speaking of THE college football playoffs, this year is absurd.

Apparently if Alabama (one loss to #7 Texas, undefeated in the SEC West, beaten 3 ranked teams) beats undefeated #1 overall Georgia (beaten 4 ranked teams) neither team will make the playoffs and instead the 11-1 Texas team, whose big win was over that same Alabama that just beat #1 Georgia, will get in.

There are a lot of if's still remaining here. First, Washington is still undefeated, along with Michigan and Florida State. Florida State plays Louisville in the ACC championship with a question at QB. If they stay undefeated and Michican beats Iowa, 3 spots of the 4 are filled.

You're leaving the final spot open to some committee that relys on a f*cking spreadsheet to make the decision.

But overall, yes, it's pretty f*cked up.

However, Georgia, who's only lost one game, if they even do, in 2 YEARS, should still be in. Just my opinion.

Yep. OSU and Texas move into the spot vacated by Oregon. Maybe. It's entirely possible they pull and OSU and just swap places, moving OSU to 5 and Oregon to 6.

Meanwhile not a single team in the top ten other than maybe Georgia could make it undefeated through the SEC West, and Alabama did it with one of the most unpolished teams Saban has had in years.

114 Mornin' Horde. Prayers for all of us and our loved ones...

I have a couple of blessings to share from this week. The HVAC at the house I just bought is 23 years old. It worked great for the home inspector, but pretty much as soon as I acquired the keys, would run intermittently but could not hold the set temp. I called the # on the unit, lo and behold, the same guy who installed it 23 years ago came out to inspect and then service it. He got it chugging along nicely and thinks we can get a bit more life out of it.

We donated Mom's car this week as I do not think she has much, if any, driving in her future, and insuring/maintaining an unused car is not financially reasonable for us. She didn't take it as hard as I thought.

OTOH, tomorrow should have been Jesse's and my 2nd wedding anniversary and I'm feeling down about that.

136 There is no argument going on right now about the influence of gambling and boosters in collegiate sports that has not already been made by more intelligent and moral men in the 19-teens and 20s.

The NCAA an organization that was empowered to the degree that it is to enforce ethics in sports has allowed the devolution of everything it stood for....

kind of a metaphor for the US government actually.

And they all do it.

IF the NCAA wants to be taken seriously, they'll investigate EVERYONE. But they NEVER do. Ok, so Michigan picked a dip shit to do it. Or he did it on it's own. There's been no real evidence obtained that says Harbaugh specifically requested this to go on. Did he really? Probably.

But they ALL do it.

The funny thing is how fast U-M changed its tune when it saw the evidence. I should clarify - they saw the evidence the NCAA had already obtained. They know what they did.

That's what bothers me the most. They are doing the Clinton Defense. You have no proof. Okay, you have proof, but not enough. Okay lots of proof, but everyone does it. You can't tie it directly to the boss.

Note how they always put it in very Clintonesque terms: "We have seen no evidence..." which isn't a denial, just a statement that you haven't caught us yet. It's grotesque.

Bingo. When the rule was put in place in 1994, everyone was happy. The big schools no longer had to waste money in an endless arms race to scout and the small schools got a break. Countless coaches have gone on the record talking about how awful it was.

What Michigan did was a clear, unambiguous breach of those rules, and they did it to gain a competitive advantage. They didn't just have signals, they had all of them, and the playbooks as well. Remember that a Marine officer ran this op - he had real-time intel that allowed his team to get the play when the opponents did. If I know every single one of your moves in real time, I have a huge advantage.

Where this gets interesting is whether people involved profited from it. If boosters were running this, they could be expected to profit from the results. It's basically fixing college football.

Oh, and speaking of corrupt players, Blake Corum seems to be a business partner in multiple enterprises with the ringleader. A lot of stuff going on.

Typically "everyone is doing it" is not a call for action, so perhaps you can understand my confusion.

It's funny you brought up Penn State because the NCAA actually overreached - it was out of their jurisdiction and they got sued for it and lost. The victims were not student-athletes, which is why civil authorities handled it.

HOWEVER, the NCAA also did not investigate U-M's thirty years of having a perv doc on their staff, anal raping black football players. No formal investigation has even taken place. The university payed a legal team, and bought off the 800+ accusers. Note that while the perp was dead, numerous witnesses were available to determine what the university knew and when. But Michigan's AG is a U-M grad, so...

I am one of the individuals suing the BSA and I suppose after reading my claim they know I'll be receiving a payout. But I did not trust her and asked her to read part of my narrative, which she did.

Long story short I did not give her my ss#. But I wonder about this work from home crap where people don't have a quiet room to work from. It seems so less then professional and reflects poorly on the organization.

204 I think the best outcome for my pleasure is for Alabama to beat Georgia for the SEC title, but Georgia to stay in the playoff as the 4th seed and three-peat. It is clear that the committee is not going to let Alabama in this year even as a 12-1 SEC Champion.

That's how it played out. The NCAA's purview is limited to student athletes, and Sandusky did not target them. I think the other issue was that they violated their own procedures. This time they seem to be very carefully following them...to a point.

Normally the NCAA collects evidence and then files a notice against the university, which responds. This takes forever. Now, however, the NCAA is turning over evidence to the University (and the Big Ten) because the allegations cut to the core of competition. The University has done a 180 as a result, going from threatening lawsuits to meek statements about letting the investigation play out.

I have studied the era extensively, the SMU sanctions and jettisoned scholarships led to a total exodus of staff. To imply that Texas, Texas Tech, and UH were somehow "less dirty" is willful blindness. Sherwood Blount did not invent the booster pay scheme he just "perfected it."

The Death Penalty was the NCAA stroking itself to get hard and then once thrust understanding it was a literal nuclear bomb. They decided behind closed doors to never use it again and consequently counter-intuitively the stricter rules de jure led to their being no rules or no sanely and evenly applied rules defacto.

What killed SMU's ability to compete and recover in part was a faculty action by a nut named Lonnie Kliever the SMU faculty rep who was an anti-football religious studies prof who said "listen what this school REALLY needs is another 4 years off for bad behavior!"

That said it was a perfect storm of arrogance, idiocy, overreach, and stupid that will not be allowed to happen again.

I thought at first that that would be a possibility but I am not thinking that anymore. One, as we have seen the last two years, the transfer portal and NIL money have broadened the parity at the top of College football. A lot of traditional powers have plenty of money. So the rich get richer but not just the very top programs.

Second, with the addition of Texas and Oklahoma, it is going to be really hard to get out of SEC play without at least one loss.

I do think that we will always have the two SEC Championship contenders in the 12, probably one more, and occasionally two additionally.

248 Several sources are reporting that there is a really ugly reason why the hostage talks between Israel and Gaza broke down and the war resumed.

The agreement was that only women and children would be exchanged.

Basically all the children and elderly women held by Hamas were exchanged, leaving only the young women as Hamas hostages, and Hamas said: "Well, it's time to start exchanging elderly men."

Hamas has no intention of exchanging the young Israeli women held as hostages.

One guess why.

276 271 Eminent Domain has never been popular; and it should never be abused, as it has been sometimes. But it remains a process that is absolutely necessary to build and maintain a functioning economy.

Utilities sometimes face the situation where they need a specific piece of land, and the landowner knows it, and keeps jacking up the price.

At some point, the utility needs to be able to say: "Accept our offer, or we'll let a judge figure out how much the land is worth."

And some cities just abused it because they were making a sweeheart deal to a developer. That what happened in the Kelo case, and the courts deemed that increasing city property tax revenues was a "public purpose". Really? Can I walk through that tax revenue? Drive over it? That tax revenue can be used for ANYTHING, unless you deem every dollar spent by a government agency is "public use"...

279 Back when SF had some semblance of law enforcement it went after the johns, not the prostitutes. Prostitution was greatly reduced. This involved attractive female cops luring johns.

Right after that ruling, they tried to do that to one of the SCOTUS' judges land. They wanted to turn it into a "freedom" hotel, with a copy of Atlas Shrugged in each hotel room. The aldermen of that town would not allow it, of course. Some people are more protected than others. I say let them live an die by their own rules.

318 Recently retired from Target and I’m no fan of their corporate guidance from the last 15 years. Ace’s link to X-user @LarryDJonesJr who shows a “SuperFat” protester with a large crowd behind her though is pretty clearly an AI generated fake. Scan the crowd and you’ll see composited faces (pinched to grotesque visage, many of the faces have warps or folds on them) and the lead protester holds a sign with both hands as a megaphone is oddly suspended in mid-air at her mouth. All the signage is unreadable and the script on them is crooked (I was in charge of superintending that type signage and the lettering was always clear and balanced in the frame. Poster Mr Jones is careful to not even name the store as a Target store in his post. Anyway, it’s clearly a fake photo. The sad truth about Target’s modern corporate governance doesn’t need any fakery to be exposed as reprehensible. They’ve got a long track record of fealty to progressivism already.

Sweet and sour, north Europe style. It's in a thin cream sauce, and really, sounds worse than it is.

Obviously an organ with a lot of blood. Pure protein and no matter how you harvest your venison, there is usually a trace of adrenaline that will get your heart pumping. Beef heart, -probably less so. Slice thin and cook like a fine steak. If you don't like a little pink, it will get chewy, but not necessarily tough.
