  • A One-legged Cardinal

    A couple of weeks ago, while sitting on my back porch with my evening cigar and bourbon, I noticed a female Cardinal with a disheveled wing on its right side. Initially, I thought the wing was disheveled because new flight feathers were coming in, or that it possibly had been attacked by one of the […]?

  • Every Communion Quote

    The men of every communion who can be said truly to understand Christianity have this corpus of thought in loyal possession. They see man controlling nature and worshipping and obeying the God whom they meet in Jesus Christ as love on the cross and judgment on the throne. Here is the central stream of Christian […]?

  • I Hope Father Stu Makes Millions!

    I just read that Mark Walhberg has a new movie coming out titled Father Stu. The description of the film reads as follows: Follows the life of Father Stuart Long, a boxer-turned-priest who inspired countless people during his journey from self-destruction to redemption. Who would’ve thought a movie such as this would be made and […]?

  • Squirrel!

    Evidently, since COVID-19 The Gain of Function Flu has lost its psychological muscle to keep the masses diverted and under complete control, and the Ukraine/Russia war drums are somewhat muffled, though a resounding bass drum beat  of “atrocities” occasionally still catches the ears of the masses, quite evidently the United States government must come up with […]?

  • Great Wisdom, Great Peace – A Quote

    “Human wisdom at the best is but a blind guide; human policy is a meteor that dazzles and leads astray; and they who follow it walk in darkness, and know not whither they are going; but he “that walketh uprightly,” that walks by the rule of God’s infallible Word, will ever find that “he walketh […]?

  • Earliest Written Reference to YHWH (God)

    Though controversies abound as to when the Israelites first entered Canaan, and as to when the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Old Testament) were written, a curse tablet found on Mt. Ebal, in Israel, could very well put to rest these controversies. If the claims are indeed correct, this tiny 2 cm x […]?

  • Is Joseph Back in Charge in Egypt?

    According to Middle East Eye, Egypt is mandating that wheat farmers must sell their wheat to the state: Feeding the 72 million: Egypt’s grand wheat plan splits the industry In the wake of the Russia-Ukraine war, Egypt’s decision to force local wheat producers to sell a slice of their output to the government has split the […]?

  • Quote of the Day – Concentrate on the Correct Regime Change

    From a Vox Day post titled Russia Will Go Nuclear… if necessary. “If you care about ‘preserving western values’, I strongly advise that you focus on regime change in London and Washington, not in Moscow. Putin is less dangerous than our own idiocracy.” Vox is absolutely correct in the above quote.

  • One Night, Once A Year

    My U.P. good friend’s wife has a really green thumb. She sent me this photo of a Night Blooming Cereus she tends. It blooms for one night, once per year. She stayed up for that one night, once a year bloom, and it was definitely worth it.

“Prayers of Steel.”
Carl Sandburg – 1878-1967

“Lay me on an anvil, O God.
Beat me and hammer me into a crowbar.
Let me pry loose old walls.
Let me lift and loosen old foundations.”

“Lay me on an anvil, O God.
Beat me and hammer me into a steel spike.
Drive me into the girders that hold a skyscraper together.
Take red-hot rivets and fasten me into the central girders.
Let me be the great nail holding a skyscraper through blue nights into white stars”
