You mean eating organic foods doesn't make you an automatic Obama supporter?

This is kind of funny in a strange sort of way. The CEO of Whole Foods, John Mackey, published an article in the Wall Street Journal criticizing the Obama health care plan. The liberals are outraged. How could anyone who eats organic food disagree with President Obama? They are calling for a boycott of Whole Foods.

I don't shop at Whole Foods for all my groceries, but if I am making ice cream, it is the best place to find heavy cream that is not ultra-pasteurized. If you use ultra-pasteurized heavy cream the ice cream comes out more like Cool Whip. It is also a super place to buy spices. Many are much cheaper there than in the regular grocery store. Also, they sell a very good chai tea concentrate at a very reasonable price. I can also find a great selection of sausage links to cook on the grill. The apple sausage links are great for those who prefer mild foods and the chipotle sausages have a nice kick for those of us who like something a little spicier. Maybe I will stop in and make an extra purchase just to show a little support for Mr. Mackey.

Wow, the liberals want to boycott Whole Foods too? They are already on LDI's boycott list for their support of Planned Parenthood.

That's great! Ha! We get a few things at Whole Foods as well (not everything - too expensive). What brand of creme do you get that is not ultra-pasteurized?

I think the liberals are just snarling at everybody since, even with control of Congress, they don't seem to be getting their own way. Denise I have given you the Loyal Friend and Visitor Award although I imagine you have already received it from someone else. I think we've been reading each others' blogs since I started mine. (Love to read blogs of people with whom I always agree:-) Plus, we've actually met!

Parent Letter from a Catechist

I am going to be teaching seventh grade CCD this year. We do most of the preparation for confirmation during this year since Confirmation is usually scheduled for the fall of the eighth grade year.I have composed a letter to the parents to try and keep them active in their children's religious education. I thought I would post it here and get your feedback before I send it out in a couple of weeks.

I am privileged to be your child’s seventh grade CCD teacher for the 2006-2007 school year. This is a very important year. We will focus on your child’s preparation for confirmation. Of course, you have already been preparing your child for this sacrament for many years. You are the primary catechist for your child. You show how important your Faith is by making Mass attendance a top priority and by family prayer.

Confirmation is one of the Sacraments of Initiation. It is a beginning. It is not a graduation. This year we will work to solidify the foundation of your child’s Catholic Faith.…

Dispelling the Myth of the Travel Dispensation

One of the fun things about having a site meter on my blog is I can see which posts garner the most attention. I can also see how people find my blog. One of the most read posts from my two years of blogging is this one that discusses finding Mass while traveling. I would like to think this post is so popular because it is so well written. The truth of the matter is that it generates so much traffic because I use the words “travel dispensation for Mass”—as in “There is no such thing as a travel dispensation for Mass.” I would guess that nearly a dozen times every week, someone googles “travel dispensation for Mass” and finds my blog. I wonder how many of these folks are poor souls trying to assuage their Catholic guilt with evidence of a justification for missing Mass while on the road.

I know that when I tell my seventh grade CCD students that attending Mass every Sunday is a commandment (one of the top ten!) and not just a pretty good idea they are amazed. Missing Mass has become so …

United Breaks Guitars

This guy is really talented and what a creative way to get your message across. I think he captured the "indifferent employee" perfectly. They don't just work for airlines. I think I ran into them at Walmart on Friday!
