Blog Bomb Re-Launch On Sunday.

Beginning on Sunday, The Coracle will return with a vengence.  Dozens of new posts, weekly Celtic devotions, significant church dates, Episcopal terminology [I know, everyone does that.  So what?], Jesus/God/Virgin Mary sightings, ephemera about music, art, and surfing, poetry and literature, not to mention anything else that snags on the needlehook of memory for a mid-century man like myself.

Oh, and "Heroes" every Friday.

Happy Anniversary, Jenni

Other guys get to go to a store and buy their wives something.  Me, I have to build Kubla Khan's stately pleasure dome.  And yes, as you can tell by the last photo, this thing is level.

[Actually, June 24th is our anniversary, but I'll be busy tomorrow.  We now return to radio silence until July 1st.]

An Unplanned, But Necessary, Hiatus

I'm deeply appreciative to all who read this weblog, for all of its eccentricity; especially those who have done so for some time.  Currently, the demands of my primary occupation, not to mention duties as a son, father, and soon-to-be grandfather [yikes!] are claiming an extraordinary amount of my professional and personal time.  So, one of the things that I'll have to surrender for awhile is blathering on about esoteric topics, stray sightings of Jesus in items of food, odd news tangentially related to American religion, etc. 

I regret this, as I include this blather as part of my daily "wellness" routine along with training and swimming at the gym, honing my rifle skills, shaping guitars, and working the blues scale for six-strings.  When the experience of leisure returns to my schedule, The Coracle will once again offer daily postings.

The Coracle will return on July 1.

The Power Of Comic Books

Marvel Comics creates superhero for boy with hearing aid

Best Laid Plans

The plan was to hold a bike parade as a nice, non-destructive, healthy senior prank.

Seniors called police for an escort, and even called Walker's mayor, who rode in the parade.

"Police escort, with the mayor, who brought us donuts. ...The mayor brought us donuts..." said a group of seniors following the ride.

But school official weren't told in advance, hence the word prank, and were not happy with the event.

They kicked the seniors out of school for their last day and threatened to keep them from walking in graduation ceremonies set for May 30.

Cue the abrasive bureaucrat: "...Get your butts home. You're not participating in senior walk today."

I Think Jimmy Carter Has You Beat, Mr. Prez

Obama also stressed he probably knows about Judaism more than any other president, because he read about it -

Say what you will about Carter, but he had a broad and impressive knowledge of comparative theology.

Also, John Adams and James Madison knew Hebrew.

Apparently, A Cross On The Side Of A Highway Establishes A Religion


God Sighting

Is this the face of God in a mixing bowl?
