Okay, the top row only are finger puppets but I wanted to go for the higher number. The Sweet Sixteen of Christmas are out of the box and doing there stuff.
Christmas is nearly upon us, heralded by the first round of parties this weekend. It seems friends are scheduling gatherings ever earlier in the month to avoid conflicts with holiday travel and others’ parties. That’s put me in a holiday mood so I though I’d share my YouTube Christmas playlist, along with some comments about each song. The playlist spans about five centuries and several musical genres, roughly in chronological order.
We don’t have a store but IF we did what products should we sell. I will list some imaginary items.

I was going to wait until after Thanksgiving, but it seems there are too many downers in the recent postings…
You may be in need of a chuckle…
How long has it been since you saw any news or discussion about the global persecution of Christians? (I mean, besides my posts.) The churches are under attack all over the world, with dozens or sometimes hundreds killed monthly. This carnage goes unnoticed by American mass media. In fact, American mass media seem determined to keep this information hidden. American Christians are not acting to help Christians around the world because they do not know the extent of the plight.
Other religious minorities experience persecution. This also gets neglected by the purveyors of “news.” But the one clear thing about religious persecution is, it mostly affects Christians, and it is overwhelmingly attributable to Muslims and Communists.
In recognition of the extents of religious persecution, the United Nations declared August 22, 2019 to be an “International Day Commemorating the Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief.”
While listening to The David Webb Show on SiriusXM yesterday morning, a clip from this version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” was played, performed by a band named Madison Rising:

This is so crazy to be against this flag because it has 13 stars. ALL RECENT FLAGS HAVE HAD THIRTEEN STRIPES so all US flags are evil by these people. Nike needs to change their slogan to “Just Don’t Do It Because Someone Somewhere Will Get Offended”. ... [Read More]
It is early Father’s Day here. Way before there was ever a Father’s Day there was a command to honor your father and mother. This is not a command to be a good parent but to be a good child. In fact in life, one has to live with the parents one is dealt. They can be incredibly good or bad. If you have won the “lottery of life”, realize you are lucky where others have not been. But back to the point of this post. You can’t pick your parents but you can decide if you will be a good child. You can treat people with respect and kindness for the good they have done. And you can treat people with respect and kindness when they have not been so good.
How are you going to be a good child today? If your father is living, do you make the call today? If your father is no longer with you, what do you do to honor the memory?... [Read More]
Ramadan ended last week. Here is the tally.
No casualties in America this year. A pretty big number overall. 911 killed and 1006 wounded. Do you recall seeing any of this in the news? Didn’t think so.
Iranian Shiites held a rally to celebrate Al-Quds Day.
“Many people from across the community and across the Muslim world at large have been swept away by the tide of American patriotism. They are proud of America, its freedom, its democracy, free speech, freedom of religion… At the same time, they look down upon the Islamic countries from the high horse of American exceptionalism. How these countries are backwards, corrupt, unorganized, and you have heard more… For that I would like to call the attention of those individuals – however they might hear this – that the amenities and luxuries that they are enjoying in this country are attained at the expense of the rest of the world....
