I hope those Christians on the forum have a good and holy season of Lent as we prepare for the joy of Easter. God Bless!

To celebrate Lent, I'm having a big T-bone
steak tonight, Ash Wednesday, and a pot
roast every Friday till Lent is over. Yum..

The 'fasting' part is a joke. It's how I eat
every day of the year:

"People who are 18-59 are required to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. A proper fast means only one full meal is eaten that day. Snacks can be consumed in the morning, afternoon or evening. The snacks are dependent on when the full meal is eaten. It can be had at any time."

Eat one big meal and snacks all thru the
day is NOT fasting. A real fast, the kind
the Hindu's have, is not eating anything
at all till the fasting is over.

Lol, I haven't eaten in 4 days. Thanks for the reminder!
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

If you go out for a beer with the steak be sure to not risk a DUI and get Uber to take you home.

I never drink away from home, unless
I'm in a casino hotel. I'd walk before I
give money to Uber. I rarely eat out
because it's never as good as what I
cook at home. I even grind my own
burger.

Why wouldn't you give money to Uber? I used them once and it was great. There is some imaginary idea that cabs are better but I don't believe in fairy tales like that.

It has nothing to do with better or worse.

I've found something I like about the Church.
In the 12th century two Irish Catholic monks
were visiting Paris. At an outdoor bazarre, they
found a seller using a still to make
alcohol for perfume. They purchased the still
and took it to Ireland. After experimenting for
awhile, they figured out how to distill grain to
make whiskey. An industry was born. It made
it's way to Scotland and eventually to the New
World a few hundred years later.

I'm very grateful to those industrious monks. Too
bad god had nothing to so with it.

Is it Ash Wednesday? There's a woman on TV
that has a cross smeared on her forehead, she
looks like a loon.

For lent I'm going to let FrG win an argument
for a change. He deserves it.
