   MeiDei  MOVE THE MOUSE AROUND AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
Here is an amazing bit of technology that you would never see in person, as you would NEVER be alone in the room. It is ALWAYS VERY CROWDED and of course you can't see Michelangelo's artwork close up as you can here. This is especially spectacular if you have a large high-definition screen! Too many details to view on a phone.

TO VIEW EVERY PART OF THE MICHELANGELO'S MASTERPIECE, JUST CLICK AND DRAG YOUR ARROW IN THE DIRECTION YOU WISH TO SEE. In the lower left, click on the plus (+ ) to move closer, on the minus (- ) to move away. Choir is thrown in free. MOVE THE ARROW AND YOU WILL SEE EVERY PART OF THE CHAPEL.
This virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel is incredible. Apparently done by Villanova at the request of the Vatican .

   Linder  Blessed with a gorgeous Fall day in southern Iowa...chilly and windy but the sun shone all day as Mother Nature went about her work of depositing leaves where they need to be for protection when the frost begins to creep into the ground.

   Gerty  You are so right!

Leaves should be kept on the ground for the protection and fertilization they provide the soil and its roots. I know, I am outnumbered by those who prefer to have a manicured lawn---DH is one of those.

PS If you must blow the fallen leaves into those monster piles, will someone please invent a noise-less blower!

   Surfhut  Linder, your post brought up a wonderful memory of my childhood: playing in thick carpets of fallen leaves with my big brother and little sister and cousins and kids around the neighborhood. It is interesting how my mind works because I can smell those leaves right now. The memory comes from Thanksgiving. Everyone came to our house and it was great fun for us kids. Thanks for posting this. I'm very happy right now.

   Surfhut  My computer crashed last Saturday. Just got back up and running after work yesterday. Didn't realize how much time I spend online. Anyway, I had to find something to do with all that time. I'm moving January 1 so decided I'd go through some old boxes to see if I really needed to keep everything.

The 1st boxes I went through were things I kept of my son's. Everything was spread out on the living room floor, from his newborn clothes to his college graduation cap & gown & diploma. I started a journal when I realized I was expecting, talking to him, and had time to read it. In the 1st entry, I told him that I only played a part in creating his body. In no way did I create him. Told him that he is God's child, God's creation, and how privileged I was to be his earth mother.

Then I went through my late husband's boxes. He went to Heaven 7 years ago and I have not been able emotionally to look at everything until this week. When I opened the 1st box, I could smell him (his favorite work hat ). Had another trip down memory lane.

What I am trying to say is that I've spent a week in awe of the blessings God has bestowed upon me. I didn't plan any of it. If I had planned it, my life would probably have been a hot mess.

Computer crash resulted in a spiritual check-up that God wanted to give me. What a blessing.

   Linder  Surf, And you are a blessing to us...your reminiscences gave me chills. Don't mean to sound patronizing but your life has always seemed so interesting and you so brave and humble. Good to hear from you again.

   BirdsNest  Our friend Theresa lost her son in December in a car accident-she has been through heck these past few months. She goes by the cemetery every day and yesterday was the 9 months mark since his death. We saw her getting ready to leave work and she was sad about the day, heading to the cemetery as soon as she clocked out, but she looks great, skin colour is rosy and she even smiles now. Also she has a new grand baby-her first and it is a girl. So we looked at photos of the little beauty-she is 1 month old and the apple of Theresa's eye, for sure. It does my heart good to see her coming back to life. It has been a tough time for her.

   Carolina Kat  "Joy comes in the morning" - like the morning of new life - very restorative. Said a prayer for your friend Birdsnest, such an unimaginable sorrow to lose a child, I'm sure she is grateful for your love and support.

   MeiDei  I'm so sorry for your friend's loss; it's incomprehensible. I will keep her in my prayers. We all need something good to look forward to & it sounds as if her granddaughter arrived at the perfect time to restore her soul.

   Carolina Kat  The other day Phooey said I was missed over here. I had no idea. Took some time off due to illness and have been limiting my computing, but wanting to say thanks to Phooey. Her kindness definitely counts as a blessing.

   Phooey  Carolina Kat, I did because of the thoughtful comments you made on the 'Faith' wall during its early days.

BTW, also recall you had a horse that was in distress? and you asked for prayer. Forgive me if I'm wrong.

Anyway, welcome back! It's a blessing to us.

   Surfhut  Simple pleasures. Remember way back when you prayed for my oldest and dearest friend Karen? She's been through a lot after brain surgery but is really coming back. Last night, for my birthday, she was able to cook dinner for me. She made my favorite thing of hers: meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans. She brought out old photo albums from waaaay back and laughed ourselves silly. Such a gift. Such a blessing.
