Jupiter and Saturn Meet in the Western Sky

 

Perhaps you've noticed those "two bright stars" shining in the western sky after dusk. Saturn is the brighter of the two and the brightest object in the night sky, excluding the moon. Jupiter is the other bright object. If you watch from night to night you will see Venus and Jupiter approach each other, meet, and then change positions.

Beginning Tuesday, May 28 until Saturday, June 1st, Venus and Jupiter will be side by side. On Sunday, June 2...

I recently had the pleasure of speaking before the Skyline Seniors who meet once a month at the Skyline Community Church on Winchester Road. I was asked for my recipe and instructions for preparing a Boy Scout Dump Cake. This is a cake that I teach Boy Scouts how to make in a Dutch oven. They can easily make it even if they have never been taught how to boil water. It's that easy. In fact I have had mothers confront me in a conversation that might go something like this, " . . . my son...

They walked in tandem, each of the ninety-three students filing into the already crowded auditorium. With rich maroon gowns flowing and the traditional caps, they looked almost as grown up as they felt.

Dads swallowed hard behind broad smiles, and moms freely brushed away tears.

This class would not pray during the commencements ——- not by choice but because of a recent court ruling prohibiting it. The principal and several students were careful to stay within the guidelines allowed by the...

A brisk wind whips the long branches of the weeping willow to and fro today, and the purple blossoms of the lilac wave in the breeze. Their fragrant scent is wafted across the yard, telling of springtime and warm...

I want to thank Anthony Wayne Area Council and everyone responsible for presenting me with the Council Patch. I love scouting but on a lower level than a lot of people. I love to teach boys, that have never held a pocketknife, how to whittle. I like seeing the eager looks in their eyes when they first learn to tie a bowline without using the stupid 'rabbit around the tree' routine which could cost them their life if they had to tie the knot quickly around their waist while...

MORNING BLESSINGS

 

When you awake in the morning, before putting coffee, toast, or anything into your body, get a tall glass of water. Go outside, face the East, and say: 

"I'm open and receptive to see and accept my illumination with you, God. I will look on the bright side of life for the many blessings that surround me, the beauty of spring flowers, songbirds, and as I stand here in the East, I lift up this water for your blessing. And as I drink some, let me feel the communion of...
