RE: Arizona quarterback To Memphis
lol starting at 7 years of age, I was recruited by nuns — they let me skip a couple grades and invited me to stay in the ‘Motherhouse’ in Kentucky on numerous occasions.

When I declined to join up, they flipped out .

After shunning the Nuns out in CA then, did you ever hook up with Susan Atkins or Leslie Van Houten?

I don't buy it. It is used today in America as a quick and lazy substitution. It is most commonly seen commercialized and used by others outside of the church.

I mean, it is a fine explanation for scholars. But with no one today using 'X' for Christ in any other scenario, it is at best an ineffective abbreviation and at worst an intentional removal.

They are a poor, defenseless, self-persecuted lot.

I will pray for them.

They are one of the reasons I am no longer catholic. Perhaps some of the most hateful people ever. Not all but the ones that were could have done a better job at the capital the other day instead of the police.

I really never thought I would change my religion because a nun hit me with a ruler if I did something wrong. One observation me and my friends did make was that when we went from 8th grade in Catholic school to 9th grade in public school is was like repeating our 8th grade all over again. Not sure anyone else had that experience but I did....especially in math.

Well, there is a little more to it than just that. I had a nun take a ruler to my hand and beat me with the metal edge that was used to shear paper and beat me with it until she broke the ruler and my hand was bleeding. In front of our entire class. I was in the 4th grade.

When I got married it was outside the church which is a nono. After my divorce my parents encouraged me to see their priest to get the marriage annulled in the catholic church. I did and the guy went through the process with me. That tab was $3500. I said no thanks.

How much would you have paid?

A Jewish buddy once asked me: Do you know why Jewish Divorces are so expensive?

No; Why?

Because they're worth it ..............

So, if I am Spanish and cannot read or write and sign my name with XX. That means my name is really Chi Chi and not Pancho?

I was raised Catholic and believe in a Catholic God, but also realize that our upbringing, and what we are taught, shape our view of religion and God, and that my word and faith has no more value than anyone else's.

The best lesson I was taught was by the school priest when I was 7 years old. I asked, if someone was in China or the jungle or didn't know about God, could they go to heaven? The priest said that at some point, you have to accept God. It can be at a very young age, when you are older, even if you are a lifelong sinner dying on a cross next to Jesus. He also said that when you die you are confronted with the truth and have to accept it. So, if you are a good person, you will have every opportunity to go to heaven.

If there is a God; I would think that he/she/it will be a loving, forgiving, tolerant, being. With that said, in all religions, many who are supposedly the most religious are the least forgiving and tolerant.

So I take what I like from religion and reject what I don't like. I enjoy bonding with my mom by going to church with her on a Sunday morning, doing groceries, then making pancakes for us for lunch; giving her a hard time when she forgets to take the butter out of the fridge before I pick her up. Then after lunch, back home to watch football or golf, or ride my bicycle depending on the season.

None of the other stuff is important to me. I don't care if someone thinks I'm bad because I don't pray every night, go to church every week, and I accept the fact that I am a flawed being who is sometimes going to make choices that don't fit in with living my best life as a Catholic.

The letter C’s is got Clout and more decorative pizzazz when I write Merry Christmas. Just a personal choice is all lol

lol They gone . BOH really fast . The true test of turnout!

I used this new flour— tigernut* flour . Not kidding .

* Tiger nuts, also known as chufa, yellow nutsedge or earth almonds, are not actually nuts, but rather edible tubers.

They’re the size of a chickpea but wrinkly with a chewy texture and sweet nutty flavor similar to coconut.

Tiger nuts were one of the first plants cultivated in Egypt and traditionally used as both food and medicine.

They’re rich in a variety of nutrients and have been linked to several health benefits — ranging from better digestion to a reduced risk of heart disease.
