So many calamities, so much pain, If God has deserted us Who’s left then to blame. —– A threat of a meltdown, That we didn’t foresee A monstrous wave Coming out of the sea A quake like no other A Devastates of man.

Our hearts and prayers are with this great courageous nation.

Susan Jane McCoy was a righteous and graceful eighty five year old lady who was spending the last of her days at the St Mary Retirement home in southern New Jersey. One fine morning she requested to speak to the local priest.
“Father”, she said in a broken, worn out voice “I feel that my time is drawing near and I have two requests.”
“Mrs. McCoy, you have been a faithful member of our community for several generations, I promise you I will try to fulfill your requests.”
“Thank you father, firstly, when I die I want to be cremated. and second More >
For those of you who are loyal followers of my blog, the fact that I am reviewing the new Adele album should come as no surprise. When I first got my hands on 19, Adele’s first album, I was overwhelmed and my post reflected my enthusiasm.
After two years of strained anticipation, waiting to see if success and the second album syndrome would take it’s toll, Adele’s follow-up is finally here. Cutely named 21 (I wonder how long she will continue that idea), the question is does it fulfill my expectations. The answer is yes and no. Is the album good? After a couple More >
