Quote from: K_Dubb on August 29, 2020, 04:32:41 PMI always get a kick out of the mystique around shofars, especially among Evangelicals -- I remember my 10th-grade prophecy/world history teacher playing a tape for us like it was heap big juju. They are probably the first natural trumpets, universal to humanity since some bored caveman blew a raspberry into a discarded goat or antelope horn and figured out it made a loud noise. But, like vestigial remnants in evolution, most peoples moved on to more sophisticated instruments while the natural trumpet survived either due to cultural conservatism, like the Jews, or isolation -- our bukkehorn is essentially dentical but was blown by poor herd-girls to scare away wolves. It's just a wild vuvuzela.
Quote from: albrecht on August 29, 2020, 04:41:50 PMWhen the World Cup was in ZA that vuvuzela crap was amazing. Amazingly bad. I reminded me of during those times of the 17-year locusts (really cicadas) with the ferocity and noise but, oddly, something one could get used to- unless one thought about it. Then it could drive a person to madness. As if soccer wasn't bad and frustrating enough you had that incessant buzzing. No wonder there is hooliganism, riots, and wife-beating frequently associated with the sport.

Quote from: pate on November 05, 2022, 08:01:38 PMI experienced a Miracle the other day.In the course of my weekly Property Maintenance for the old landlord dude I ran into three Brothers from the Little Brothers of the Lamb.Two were from France, and the blind guy was from around hear.Anyway, I always stop People of The Cloth and talk to them. These brothers were decked out in their standard Blue Monk Cowl things and were probably on Mission.We talked for awhile, I cracked jokes about me being a B-Teamer (Protestant) and them being A-Teamers (Catholic). I massacred a little French with them, they were fascinated by my Reel Mower (except the blind one, I am going to hell, HAH!), and tried to figure out where in South of France I spent summer when I was a kid.Apparently, they have a Monastery somewhere near Marseilles/Avignon. Talked about the Papal Palace there, and other stuff.We probably chatted for about a fifteen minutes, and since both they and myself were "On Mission" with Work to do they took off.Before they did, they offered to sing me a blessing, which is apparently something they do for friends. They did it in French, a cappella and it was incredible.Something akin to this:Only it was three brothers and not the entire choir.While they were singing, I silently prayed a bit about something I had lost about a year ago that has really been bothering me ever since.What do you suppose I found shortly thereafter?I will tell you that the lost thing once belonged to my dead squad-brother that went down on the helicopter all those years ago... And I have been searching EVERYWHERE for it, thought it was gone forever.Anyway, I stopped by their local monastery today and told them the story. I also said that if the Pope will accept Testimonials about Saintly Miracles from a heathen heretic Protestant, I wanted to make it Official as I think the three brothers are indeed Saints.Their vow of humility of course prevented them from agreeing with me.I am not converting to Catholicism; but I am going to at least get them some of my mom's Red Oak logs for their wood-stove in the Monastery: one of them was out back trying to split some green Elm "biscuits" which are Hell.HAH. They also invited me to some dinner thing they do every Saturday, haven't decided about that although I am considering teaching them how to bake some decent bread if they don't do that already.Praise Kord Jaysus!-p
