Christ's resurrection and manifestation to his disciples.
 And on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalen cometh early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre; and she saw the stone taken away from the sepulchre.  She ran, therefore, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and saith to them: They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.  Peter therefore went out, and that other disciple, and they came to the sepulchre.  And they both ran together, and that other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.  And when he stooped down, he saw the linen cloths lying; but yet he went not in.
 Then cometh Simon Peter, following him, and went into the sepulchre, and saw the linen cloths lying,  And the napkin that had been about his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but apart, wrapped up into one place.  Then that other disciple also went in, who came first to the sepulchre: and he saw, and believed.  For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.  The disciples therefore departed again to their home.
 But Mary stood at the sepulchre without, weeping. Now as she was weeping, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,  And she saw two angels in white, sitting, one at the head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been laid.  They say to her: Woman, why weepest thou? She saith to them: Because they have taken away my Lord; and I know not where they have laid him.  When she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing; and she knew not that it was Jesus.  Jesus saith to her: Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, thinking it was the gardener, saith to him: Sir, if thou hast taken him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
 Jesus saith to her: Mary. She turning, saith to him: Rabboni (which is to say, Master).  Jesus saith to her: Do not touch me, for I am not yet ascended to my Father. But go to my brethren, and say to them: I ascend to my Father and to your Father, to my God and your God.  Mary Magdalen cometh, and telleth the disciples: I have seen the Lord, and these things he said to me.  Now when it was late that same day, the first of the week, and the doors were shut, where the disciples were gathered together, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them: Peace be to you.  And when he had said this, he shewed them his hands and his side. The disciples therefore were glad, when they saw the Lord.

This movie was released in 1970, the year I completed 1st grade at Catholic High and began 2nd grade at St. Edward Elementary. I did not see it until many years later and it has been a favorite of mine ever since.
As Terence Hill himself said, it is not history, it is a movie, it is emotion.

Now matter where you go on earth, you may apply Newtonian physics in everyday life and it will accurately predict the outcome. No matter where you go on earth, that bushman's magic lightning will not work.

When I was a teenager, I used to listen to 8-track music featuring Kiss, a rock and roll band. Today I see it as one of those Barney The Dinosaur type happenstances. I say this because my sainted mother could quote Kiss musical refrains as well as any 90's mom could quote Barney.
Here are two videos of Kiss and as you can see, the energy of youth is fleeting:
Here is Detroit Rock City in a video from 1976

Prayer for a Blessing on the New Year
O sacred and adorable Trinity, hear our prayers on behalf of our holy Father the Pope, our Bishops, our clergy, and for all that are in authority over us. Bless, we beseech Thee, during the coming year, the whole Catholic Church; convert heretics and unbelievers; soften the hearts of sinners so that they may return to Thy friendship; give prosperity to our country and peace among the nations of the world; pour down Thy blessings upon our friends, relatives, and acquaintances, and upon our enemies, if we have any; assist the poor and the sick; have pity on the souls of those whom this year has taken from us; and do Thou be merciful to those who during the coming year will be summoned before Thy judgment seat. May all our actions be preceded by Thy inspirations and carried on by Thy assistance, so that all our prayers and works, having been begun in Thee, may likewise be ended through Thee. Amen.

I live a good stones throw from the bayou Teche, if you have a really good arm and can find a stone. Rock gardens are imports here in South Louisiana. I have grown up fishing on the bayou and have almost always caught catfish. There are many other types of fish to be found in the bayou as I could see from the annual fish kills when the sugar mills would open. Those kills do not happen any more as the mills have cleaned up their act and been reduced in number.
When I was a teenager, I would sometimes eat at a friends house where his mom served fish court bouillon. There would often be a carp in the pot. It had been scaled and cleaned with the head still attached. Although it was always great tasting food, the fish would have many small bones to pick out so I never really even considered catching them.
Today, I decided to do some research on catching and cleaning carp. I was surprised at how different the hook and bait rigs were from what I was used to. I believe that I can rig something up myself and will give it a try in the bayou. However, I think all I catch will be catfish.
After reading a few articles and such, I decided to watch a video on the matter and found this gem. I hope you enjoy is as much as I did. I was hooked after the 3:50 mark when Nathan ate something he should not have.

"Lengthened to the size of a tennis court, the five-layer sunshield of NASA's fully assembled James Webb Space Telescope successfully completed a final series of large-scale deployment and tensioning tests. This milestone puts the observatory one step closer to its launch in 2021."

In general the Kung Flu poses no more threat than any other seasonal infection such as certain types of flu. Is the Kung Flu a sometimes deadly infection? Yes it is for a very small percentage of the population.
"All of this points to no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths. Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers. We found no evidence to the contrary."
"When Briand looked at the 2020 data during that seasonal period, COVID-19-related deaths exceeded deaths from heart diseases. This was highly unusual since heart disease has always prevailed as the leading cause of deaths. However, when taking a closer look at the death numbers, she noted something strange. As Briand compared the number of deaths per cause during that period in 2020 to 2018, she noticed that instead of the expected drastic increase across all causes, there was a significant decrease in deaths due to heart disease. Even more surprising, as seen in the graph below, this sudden decline in deaths is observed for all other causes.
Graph depicts the number of deaths per cause during that period in 2020 to 2018.
This trend is completely contrary to the pattern observed in all previous years. Interestingly, as depicted in the table below, the total decrease in deaths by other causes almost exactly equals the increase in deaths by COVID-19. This suggests, according to Briand, that the COVID-19 death toll is misleading. Briand believes that deaths due to heart diseases, respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia may instead be recategorized as being due to COVID-19.
Graph depicts the total decrease in deaths by various causes, including COVID-19.
The CDC classified all deaths that are related to COVID-19 simply as COVID-19 deaths. Even patients dying from other underlying diseases but are infected with COVID-19 count as COVID-19 deaths. This is likely the main explanation as to why COVID-19 deaths drastically increased while deaths by all other diseases experienced a significant decrease.
"All of this points to no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths. Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers. We found no evidence to the contrary," Briand concluded."

Noting that he was also an expert in virology, renowned pathologist Dr. Roger Hodkinson pointed out that his role as CEO of a biotech company that manufactures COVID tests means, “I might know a little bit about all this.”
“There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians, it’s outrageous, this is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public,” said Hodkinson.
Hodkinson remarked that “social distancing is useless because COVID is spread by aerosols which travel 30 meters or so before landing,” as he called for society to be re-opened immediately to prevent the debilitating damage being caused by lockdowns.
Hodkinson also slammed mandatory mask mandates as completely pointless.
“Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence base for their effectiveness whatsoever,” he said.
“Paper masks and fabric masks are simply virtue signalling. They’re not even worn effectively most of the time. It’s utterly ridiculous. Seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people – I’m not saying that in a pejorative sense – seeing these people walking around like lemmings obeying without any knowledge base to put the mask on their face.”
The doctor also slammed the unreliability of PCR tests, noting that “positive test results do not, underlined in neon, mean a clinical infection,” and that all testing should stop because the false numbers are “driving public hysteria.”

"What's behind all the hollow slogans about "protecting democracy"?
The obvious answer is two admissions.
1. President Trump has a case. Enough of one for Democrats, and their media and legal allies to be worried.
2. The Democrats have something to hide."

In light of the following facts, would someone please explain how all those ballots for Biden somehow, against all reason, showed up?
"According to NBC News on election day before the polls opened, In Michigan, Republicans led 41% to 39% in Mail-in Ballots requested. Republicans also led 42% to 39% with Mail-in and in-person ballots returned.
In Wisconsin on election day before the polls opened, Republicans led Mail-in Ballots requested 43% to 35%, and Mail-in and early in-person ballots returned 43% to 35%. Almost ALL of the ballots found, while most in the country were sleeping, after they officials stated they would stop counting, were for Joe Biden."'

"I’ve been trying to keep up with the firehose of information about what’s going on during this clusterfuck of an election. Last night I was on Facebook talking about the crazy high, 3rd world dictatorship level voter turnout levels in the deep blue areas of these swing states was very suspicious. Somebody gas lighted me about how “I’d have to do better than that”, so this was my quick reply, listing off the questionable bullshit I could think of off the top of my head:
The massive turn out alone is a red flag.
But as for doing better…
The late night spikes that were enough to close all the Trump leads are a red flag.
The statistically impossible breakdown of the ratios of these vote dumps is a red flag.
The ratios of these dumps being far better than the percentages in the bluest of blue cities, even though the historical data does not match, red flag.
The ratios of these vote dumps favoring Biden more in these few battlegrounds than the ratio for the rest of the country (even the bluest of the blue) red flag.
Biden outperforming Obama among these few urban vote dumps, even though Trump picked up points in every demographic group in the rest of the country, red flag.
The poll observers being removed. Red flag.
The counters cheering as GOP observers are removed, red flag.
The fact that the dem observers outnumber the GOP observers 3 to 1, red flag (and basis of the first lawsuit filed)
The electioneering at the polls (on video), red flag.
The willful violation of the court order requiring the separation of ballots by type, red flag.
USPS whistleblower reporting to the Inspector General that today they were ordered to backdate ballots to yesterday, red flag.
The video of 2 AM deliveries of what appear to be boxes of ballots with no chain of custody or other observers right before the late night miracle spikes, red flag.
Any of those things would be enough to trigger an audit in the normal world. This many flags and I’d be giggling in anticipation of catching some thieves.
And it isn’t that I have to do better. I’m just an gen pop observer who happens to be a retired auditor with a finely tuned bullshit detector. This is going to the courts."
