Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become Bourbon aged in a white oak barrel.”

4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on Sour Mash alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”

    I gave up chocolate coated peanut butter Easter eggs. They screw-up the taste of good whisky and do not improve the taste ofthe bad stuff.

    I myself am not a papist. I am however slightly overweight, and with Lent coming up, it seemed apropos. Plus its something to look forward to in about 3 weeks.

    Lent is 40 days I think,

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Three days, 40 days... Who's counting?

    "He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day get shitfaced drunk.’"
