It is hard to imagine this turning in a sea of green as spring finally takes hold soon.

Finally broke down and put the #Advent music away and started listening to the #Christmas playlist.

Strange that #ESPN  and #ESPN2  are not displaying on my TV but #WatchESPN  is working and other channels on the TV are working.

Exciting #MSU  and #Wolverine  college basketball game. One can hope that #SB49  will be just as exciting.

I might take a bit of flack for this, but I received a call yesterday identifying themselves as a professional fundraiser for a charity to take care of families where a member suffers from a particular form of cancer. While there are hundreds if not thousands of worthwhile charities that should be supported, the key piece is how much money from a cold call like that goes to the charity. In this case, it is 15%. The rest, 85%, ends up in the hands of professional fundraisers. If you look at a few websites, money for the cause should be 65% (rated a C by some web sites) to 75% or 85%. 
In the case of yesterday's call, my reaction to 15% was to state that this was horrible and as quickly as possible to hang up without being too much ruder.
So, in the future, if you get calls from charities associated with law enforcement (in that case, it was 10% went to the cause), always ask. In both cases, I now have done so, I get a big pause before they'll provide the information. They don't try to avoid giving the figure, but from what I can tell, they realize that they're unlikely to get a contribution.

I'm curious if the catholic-hierarchy news blog is continuing to be updated. It does not appear there has been an update since mid-November on http://catholic-hierarchy-news.blogspot.com/.
Announcements of recent changes in the hierarchy of the Catholic Church. This blog serves as a supplement to the main Catholic-Hierarchy website. Note: this blog and the website are NOT officially sanctioned or approved by any church authority.

I've been unusually busy lately and haven't been keeping up with the blog or news groups. I did post today's news and I'll try to back fill the entries by this weekend.
