A picture that defines 2016.
BOSTON — When Ben Franklin famously flew a kite in a lightning storm, he made history, but a wind storm over the weekend proved too much.The Boston Globe reports (http://bit.ly/23VlFaT) an 1856 bronze statue of Franklin positioned along the city's Freedom Trail toppled over after a particularly blustery Sunday.A city spokeswoman says high winds pushed a nearby tent into the statue, causing it to fall off its pedestal.She says the Boston Arts Comm...

The Culture of Productivity and Death. (Learning to celebrate uniqueness apart from usefulness)
Cathoholic originally shared:
 
There’s a culture of productivity, that’s feeding the culture of death. Please allow me to illustrate. The following internet photo is from a style of meme pioneered by despair.com. The site creates merchandise that is parody of “motivational posters”……
There's a culture of productivity that's feeding the culture of death. See why the problem is not productivity itself, but the immoderate focus on it.

Brief Podcast Review: Concealed Carry Podcast

What it is: A relatively new (Feb 2016) podcast with obviously seasoned trainers from http://www.usafirearmtraining.com/. I sampled episode 13 (of a current 14 as of today). Not even a third of the way through the episode, I could tell this one will be a contender for my own personal "best list" of Carry podcasts.

What it isn't: a long-running podcast with zillions of episodes to catch up on. But rest assured, they seem to do podcasting very well.

This one is definitely staying in my podcast feeds for now. High marks indeed.

+Riley Bowman it took me less than a week to get caught up. You guys rock.

Upon further consideration, I may retract my bit rate criticism. Depending on the connection/microphone of the guest, I can see why you might not want a lower rate. If you've got the hosted space and bandwidth, keep on with your current.

Thanks for the nod in today's episode too. I really wanted a podcast just like this to listen to, and I'm a happy evangelist for it. I even installed windows just to leave my iTunes review.

Can I get recommendations for the best podcast on Concealed Carry or EDC?  I'm spread very thin on podcast time available, so looking for the very best. (Maybe general podcasts, or even geared toward new license holders)

Searching the community, I found a post by +Jeremy Younger with an episode about real gunfights from Ballistic Radio.  Enjoying it as I type this, but hoping for shows that regularly focus on Concealed Carry.

Some Catholic readers will know the Psalm 22 reference, while others (and non-Catholics) might be surprised. I grew up without the connection... And have been intrigued ever since I learned it.
 
Come see why "I don't think that scripture means what you think it means"...
Psalm 22 from the cross. Come see why the familiar line from Matthew 27 is actually a reference to the Psalm. "My God, My God" means more than you think.

Typical Google style.
Not only do they pioneer or re-invent a platform, but they provide the tools for creative minds to make the next generation of content for the platforms. Just the next project in their reach for the stars.

I'm humbly reminded of their Google Fiber project, that didn't just seek to bring greater bandwidth, but develop new uses for it.

My search for Carry Podcasts.
Brief Podcast Review: Triangle Tactical

In search of a great podcast for Concealed Carry specifically, one that I checked out was Triangle Tactical.

What it is: A well produced podcast with a large focus on competitive shooting. Don't get me wrong, I want to learn to move and shoot, but it wasn't my focus. Seems like an awesome show for those that compete, or can spark an interest in just about anyone.

What it isn't: A long-running show with a solid focus on concealed carry. I took a look at episode 118 "Concealed and Open Carry Safety". It was one that was titled towards my interest in carry podcasts. Of the 53 minutes, ten was devoted to the actual title topic, and much of that was bashing different types of holsters.

Can't say I won't listen in the future for tips on moving and shooting, or if I find the time and money for competitive shooting, but not the podcast I was looking for. Keep up the good work though guys - very well done.

A snapshot from part of my journey. Hopefully helpful for others to get closer to Christ.  Geared especially (but not exclusively) for Catholics that have been away from the sacraments for a while.
 
My personal journey back to the sacraments, complete with tips and advice that might help make your trip easier too.
My personal journey back to the sacraments, and what I found along the way. Plus tips and advice for your return. It's so much easier than you imagine.
