Saturday on Substack - 16.IX.2023
The 16th is the 106th anniversary of Alexander Schmorell’s birth, and the 14th was the 21st anniversary of my baptism in the Orthodox Church. Last year, I did a video for the event of the 20th anniversary - this year, even posting seemed to be too much amidst the exhaustion I feel right now. I don’t know that I felt any less exhausted then, it’s just that at the moment, there are three fairly large “house projects” looming over my head, and I’ve been doing all that I can to keep working, bit by bit, on those. In the meantime, I apologize that I haven’t been posting as frequently as I feel I should be.
Unexpected Months in Hospice Have Been 'Meaningful' to Jimmy Carter as He 'Comes to the End,' Grandson Says - MSN.com | It occurred to me that I had heard awhile ago that Jimmy Carter had been moved to hospice and it made me wonder if he had died and I missed it. I used to listen to a lot more politics on the radio, so it’s kind of strange to think that something like a president’s death could happen without me knowing. It seems like he’s hanging on, and may reach his 99th birthday in October.
Starbucks Tazoberry Tea Recipe - Top Secret Recipes | The TazoBerry & Cream was an amazing drink. I’m not keen on the idea of breaking out the blender for a single drink, but I may have to make the exception here.
The Secret Recipe for Costco’s Chicken Bakes - Reader’s Digest | Speaking of copycat recipes, this looks promising as well!
School District Removes Christmas, Easter From Calendar - Todd Starnes | This isn’t surprising in the least, but with it being Brainerd, I just wonder what Marge Gunderson has to say about it.
Nolte: Bill Maher Defies Hollywood Strikes with HBO's ‘Real Time’ Return - Breitbart | The writers strike, sure, but lots of other people are affected.
Listen: Citizens Call 911 on Biden Energy Secretary Granholm’s Staff for Blocking EV Charger - Breitbart | Completely ridiculous! On one hand, I’m not blaming the people for getting the police involved, on the other, if this is something that the police should get involved with, why hang up just because *you* get a spot to charge?
Angel Studios has greenlighted the funding of a documentary of Rod Dreher’s book “Live Not By Lies”. If you’re interested, the link is here: https://invest.angel.com/live. The minimum investment amount is $102, and the project is over halfway funded, but there’s only 17 days left to join in.
The ridiculous sales tax rates in Illinois | Oh, the things that are worth forgetting!
