From the canon for the Bodiless Powers that we celebrate their feast today (new calendar), 5th ode.

Angels and archangels, divine hosts of God,
by your ceaseless intercessions before Him,
destroy the turmoil of battles,
the heresies [/schisms] in the Church
and every block of stumbling,
and keep us in peace.

I've learned you can make your own mayonnaise pretty easily. Will experiment and report back.

I hated mayo until I realised how great it goes with pretty much any herb or spice. So I started making it home with eggs, olive oil and lemon (instead of vinegar).

I like it on my sandwiches. I needed another jar from the store, and on sale BOGO, it cost the same as the non-BOGO price used to be, so I said, screw that.

Today I learned that tooth implants require bone matter from a cadaver. :eek:

Glad to know there are apparently artificial alternatives, I was starting to think about my chances to pray the caries away.

That's good to know. Otherwise, I think I'd rather wait until they all fall out and get dentures. Good motivation to floss, I guess!

Canon in D is a beautiful song. I love it. But it hurts to hear, and it seems to be freaking everywhere this year. 😩 That's all.

In order to help members of this forum do their godly obligation of serving the poor, I am drawing up a wishlist on Amazon of Lego sets I want. You will be notified when it is complete. Remember: those who do not answer the call now will have to answer for it later.

In a store today a little girl (maybe 6 or 7) looked up at me and cheerily wished me a merry Christmas, and all I could muster in response was a small smile. I'm so lame.

She may have left and told a great story of how she put a smile on a grumpy shopper. Her gift. She made a difference.

Today reached 31 ºC. That's usual for this time of the year, which makes a lot of the Northern Hemisphere imagerie really weird. My baby daughter still managed to pull off these special reindeer overalls, though.

They can make for nice memories but also increased danger. Probably better to stay safe tbh. 😇
Then a snow machine is in my future. ☺

Here, too! At least we were spared the snow.

Got an email from the electric company saying that our usage was greater than normal. Well...DUH! It was freezing for days!!
