If the Romans had hung Jesus, would Christians wear little nooses around their necks?

Ya nailed it, bub!


To use His very own words, (and how clever is it to blashpheme in public, really?),"Thou hath said it, prefectly." *

No resurrection insurrections around this province while I am in charge, ya hear?--Pilate after words with Jesus

* Only the words of Jesus and names of posters should righteously appear in boldface, but exceptions seem to rule here, so...do yer thing...it is of little moment, after all, because it's a little tiny world, after all.

But a nice one, all the same.

edit: While rabbit trails are just side-trips for mice, who are looking for ANYTHING interesting, they do yield treasures on occasion. It's why I bother taking them. My main trial on the trails about MY HOME is that I'm so often alone and as long as I keep a little light on in the back of my muscular brain, shaped like Jesus, knowing it's there is all I need to go places where the Yokuts is afraid and the white man's never been.

Seriously, this threat is aboud just any old thing under the sun.

But indoor climbing, no; though there may be one or two references by otherwise well-meaning persons, including mice persons like myself.

I drink enough boxed zin lately that it could be a wine commercial in da skies. I could get plenty of endorsements on any old climbing website, but the Taco is especially fertile ground.

Atop the Muir, who would drink water if champagne is more apropos? Surely not I. Mr. Robbins seems to be drinking out of a plastic cup. He's finally graduated to the world of BIG-BIG WALLS. BIG WALLS are sissy stuff now. Some prefer port wine to champagne. I'm malleable. I can go with port in a pinch if it's got the right pitch man.

I'm not a fan of games in everyday life, except for Risk and of course, Scrabble. They have limited appeal, however. No one likes getting their asses handed to them in a game. I'm very lucky, usually, at Risk and pink is my color, nine is my number. Nine armies in India, nine in Norhtern Europe. I'm attacking Kamchatka from Alaska with three dies.
It kills me that more people don't care for risk in their daily lives. These are called dull boys and homebodies. I see few around the Taco.

Or eKat could be correct.

Inanity reigns in the most unlikely places.

Flames appear there, too, so here's a little can of Nine Lives cooked on the open grill, or the musical equivalent.

Not that it's pure tat. There's some good stuff, too. But beware, cats are deceitful and love to play with their food.



Groucho's hundred-dollar word for today is "Irrepressible."

It's magic. Use it next time you try to impress the opposite sex. Say "I'm irrepressible when it comes to so & so." You'll be surprised what can happen next...

Rabbits come out of a hat and do tricks for you. Now that's impressive and just try to repress a rabbit.

"You feelin' lucky, punk? Go ahead, make my day." This phrase caused a male rabbit to laugh so hard he never stopped and never sired another kit, or whatever a baby rabbit's called. A Ripley Tale, believe me now...

REAL PEOPLE HERE.

Fakes here.

Saturday, August 24, 120 volunteers from three local Merced Credit Unions bussed to Camp Green Meadows outside the Wawona entrance to Yosemite.

Their purpose was to paint, clean, and rebuild at the camp, which serves as a recreation camp in summer and is an outdoor school operated by the Merced County Office of Education the rest of the year, seving students from throughout California in one-day and week-long classes.

The camp celebrates its 50th year next year; I was a counselor there for a week in 1965, its second year of operation; and I was a senior in Merced High then.

These volunteers were from EECU, MSEFCU and Merco Credit Union, which is the biggest sponsor of the series of races in March here in town and out in Snelling. The list of tasks: painting picnic tables and splitting stackin firewood, rebuilding the archery range backstop, and constructing a retaining wall and much more.

CEOs talk pretty much the same, "The common thread...and blah-blah-blah...community project....win-win situation...yak-yak-yak...credit unions support...working together...spirit of people helping people.”

It was a Face-lifting, is what it was.

It’s good to know the school’s lasted this long and has the continued support of the community’s credit unions, two of which got business from Liz and myself--auto loan and checking account.

Camp Green Meadows is on Facebook, like.

So how about those Giants, kids. Champions one year, cellar the next.

I blame it on the Rim Fire and the drought.

Wait till next year, when we moitalize 'em.

I heard a really funny two-part joke about male and female Rice Krispies and now I cannot recall the story, much less the punch lines.

"I had heavy misgivings about that missing leg after we ascended the tower. I had no way of knowing he was epileptic, too. I don't speak Japanese so well."

Which only deepens the question, "Why does everybody hate Christianity so much?"

Getting back to the Romans. If you do as the Romans do in Rome, then when not in Rome, as the Romans don't do. This seems to leave a very wide latitude in behavioral options.

I wonder how many of these shirts are still available.
