Happy Eostre / Ostara!

Today is the Vernal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere -- the first official day of Spring! In pagan tradition, it is the date sacred to the Goddess named Eostre or Ostara. Her sacred animal is, of course, the fabulously fertile rabbit, prolific creator of new life after the long sleep of winter.

And what a long, hard winter it's been!
We're all looking a little . . . harried . . . by it, aren't we?

Time to put on our Spring Finery!

Maybe even indulge in some Bunny Bling!

Don't let life get you down!
Be creative!

Enjoy whatever pampering you can get!

And never miss an opportunity for a snuggle!

Happy Irish Heritage Day!

Thank Gawd and the Baby Jesus that I have Irish blood so I can make fun of the Irish on St. Patrick's Day!

Hey, don't give me your politically-correct gimlet eye. Them's the Rules of the Game and you know it!

Oh, thought I couldn't work superheroes into this post? Well, think again!

And Now, Equal Time

Further to Wednesday's meme post about Jesus, and in the interest of fair and balanced reporting on this blog, here's a meme post about The Competition.

People! This is why spelling is important!

Even Satan has to make a living, I guess.
Say, I hope Jesus doesn't fill up His Honda Accord here --

Are people really getting worse and worse?
Satan knows!

Of course, there's always the 
good ol' evil reliables 
to keep Satan in business!

And, every once in awhile,
a special delivery!

Keep your eye on him, Jesus,
he's a slippery bastard!

Hey, Jesus Loved a Good Joke!

Especially ones at His own expense! Jesus was cool that way.

Yes, that's my belief and I'm sticking to it.

So now, let's get this meme show on the road!
The road to Galilee!

Water always figured prominently in Jesus' life . . . 

. . . but only for walking, not for drinking.

But of course, Jesus would never drink and drive.
And speaking of which, exactly 
what kind of car would Jesus have driven?

This one's just in bad taste.

And this one too, so to speak.

And howzabout Simon Peter?
It was not easy to be Jesus' BFF!

Remember, we must always ask ourselves --
What Would Jesus Do?

He'd do this:

Now go ye and do likewise.

But be sure to come back here on Friday,
when we'll have a meme post from The Competition.

Smart Speakers

Do you have one of those Smart Speakers that are all the rage now, like Amazon Echo (Alexa), Google Home or Apple HomePod? You know, those "voice-controlled, intelligent personal assistant services" as Wikipedia describes them?

My Rare One just got a Google Mini and she LOVES it! My Rare One tends to be an early adopter of new technology. I am not. I'm a late, drag-me-kicking-and-screaming-into-the-modern-world adopter of new technology. So I do NOT have a Smart Speaker and do not foresee getting one in the near (or indeed, any) future.

But people SWEAR by their Smart Speakers! Is there NOTHING those devices can't do?

What about the danger of getting too DEPENDENT on them?

I suppose they MIGHT be useful in SOME circumstances . . . 

. . . but NOT in OTHERS.

Their ultimate uses we can only DREAM about.
