    'Staggering' Abuse Cover-up in Altoona-Johnstown Catholic Diocese

    I totally agree.  The coverup was an additional astronomical crime.  Though, as a former Catholic, I do believe that somehow having a mandatory celibate priesthood might be a a draw for pedophiles, where they can find victims but not have wives/family observing closely their behavior. There is...

    Arts & crafts

    I draw and paint, mainly portraits.  My avatar I just loaded is a drawing I did, completely freehand, of the Serbian Patriarch Pavle. I play the mandolin and focus on music from the Balkans and other Slavic countries.  I also make Pysanky.

    Polish Marti Gras Delicacies

    Umm, I'm 1/2 Polish.  Sugared Orange is quite authentic.  And, yes, being filled with Prune filling is very traditional, but so is Rosehip jam.    And, glazed with a citrus glaze. One of the best, and very authentic Polish cookbooks, is this one, totally devoted to Sugared Orange.  I made...

    Polish Marti Gras Delicacies

    I agree, the best Pączki I ever ate were in Chicago at the Old Warsaw Restaurant.  I've lived in Binghamton, NY,  lived near Buffalo, I"m from the Polka belt between Y-town and Pittsburgh, but Chicago had the best.    Instead of powdered sugar, it was  Pączki glazed with a citrus glaze and...

    New York City woman gets catcalled in full winter clothes

    Yes, women can be violent and often are violent.  I think there is a significant increase, though, in the magnitude and frequency of the violence and harassment against women.    Take date rape drugs, for instance.  How many men are victims of someone slipping them a date rape drug and then...

    New York City woman gets catcalled in full winter clothes

    Women are brought up to be hypervigilant about their safety.    Men aren't brought up this way.  Women always have to be aware of their surroundings, it's just how it is.  The fear isn't that every man can murder us, the fear is that some man might.  We know who seems safe and we pay attention...

    New York City woman gets catcalled in full winter clothes

    Women ignore unwanted advances all the time.    Men are (usually) physically stronger than women so may not experience the sense of threat that women often feel.

    St Nersess Seminary Coffee Mug

    The best coffee I drink is from the Polish Pottery Bubble Mug my husband bought me for a gift.  They can be a bit pricey, and I have only one, but they are beautiful and wonderful, and I treasure mine.
