The Church – Changing With the Times

The elderly priest, speaking to the younger priest, said, ”You had a

good idea to replace the first four pews with plush bucket theater

seats . It worked like a charm. The front of the church always fills

first now.”


The young priest nodded, and the old priest continued, ”And you told

me adding a little more beat to the music would bring young people

back to church, so I supported you when you brought in that rock ‘n

roll gospel choir. Now our services are consistently packed to the



”Thank you, Father,” answered the young priest. ”I am pleased that

you are open to the new ideas of youth.”


”All of these ideas have been well and good,” said the elderly

priest, ”But I’m afraid you’ve gone too far with the drive-thru


”But, Father,” protested the young priest, ”my confessions and the

donations have nearly doubled since I began that!”


”Yes,” replied the elderly priest, ”and I appreciate that. But the

flashing neon sign, ‘Toot ‘n Tell or Go to Hell’ cannot stay on the

church roof!”





This is for Chuba.  I hope he stays healthy this year.


Finis Editor:  How many end times have we printed, LL ?

Banana Cat:  A bunch more are coming for Democratic cities.

Oh, look.  Trump’s rallies are racist.  Reuters leans more left than the tower in Pisa.

Racism is the dems last resort to defeat Trump.  Kaine was Hillgal’s VP pick in her second losing presidential race.

Lady Antebellum made a hurried mistake, and got in a pickle.

The Tadpoles of IC 410

Explanation: This telescopic close-up shows off the central regions of otherwise faint emission nebula IC 410, captured under backyard suburban skies with narrowband filters. It also features two remarkable inhabitants of the cosmic pond of gas and dust. Below and right of center are the tadpoles of IC 410. Partly obscured by foreground dust, the nebula itself surrounds NGC 1893, a young galactic cluster of stars. Formed in the interstellar cloud a mere 4 million years ago, the intensely hot, bright cluster stars energize the glowing gas. Composed of denser cooler gas and dust, the tadpoles are around 10 light-years long and are likely sites of ongoing star formation. Sculpted by stellar winds and radiation their heads are outlined by bright ridges of ionized gas while their tails trail away from the cluster’s central young stars. IC 410 lies some 10,000 light-years away, toward the nebula-rich constellation Auriga.
