Another Lenten Special

Saturday, March 8th, 2008

A couple of weeks ago I put up a post on the commercialization of Lent. I was surprised by a sign for a restaurant that advertised a Lenten special. I don’t recall ever seeing such a thing in California. At least there weren’t Lenten specials in Irvine, as near as I can remember.

The Commercialization of Lent?

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

Well, I never thought I’d see it. But, sure enough, somebody has figured out how to commercialize Lent. Amazing.

For […]

Memorial Day Gratitude

Monday, May 28th, 2007

(It is my Memorial Day tradition to put up something that suits the day. This post is similar to one I posted in 2005.)
When I was young, Memorial Day was wonderful because it signified the beginning of summer. Even though I always had a few more days of school after the holiday, nevertheless, Memorial Day […]
