Saturday soapbox

Saturday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation.

You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, to muse or amuse.
:) kindest, Boris

    In a few hours the miracle of the Holy Fire will occur in Jerusalem when the Greek Patriarch of Jerusalem will go alone into the Holy Holy Sepulchre after being searched for matches and so forth and will emerge with the Holy Fire which will spread to Pilgrims candles throughout the Church and beyond.

    This miracle was first recorded around 870 and has occurred most years ever since. It failed to occur in Crusader times when the Greek Patriarch was replaced by a Latin and it also failed in 1969 when the Greek Patriarch adopted the Latin date for Easter but on returning to the Orthodox Date the miracle happened.

    The flame will be flown to Athens, Moscow, Tbilisi, Belgrade, Sofia, Bucharest and so forth and spread throughout those lands

    My commiserations are with the innocents who need to be protected from their parents’ delusions.

    While generally on the side of fewer rules I’m on the side of the lawmakers here.

    Mine is an unusual name – Elspeth, the Scottish form of Elizabeth. People mishear it, mispronounce it and misspell it. That’s why I prefer the shortened version of Ele and why our three children had short, simple names.
