8302 - Would a zombie icon be inappropriate for Easter?

Actually, I take a little micro-umbrage at that, because the stories have him as resurrected, not just reanimated.

Have some more Easter Lore.

I'm not a terribly religious man, but I do enjoy the sentiment of the Franciscans.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Some of those can be a little difficult at times.

As an agnostic, I'm not looking for eternal life, but I do want to be a part of making the world better for everyone. Pardoning is something I especially still need to work on. The lure of personal justice and worse, vengeance is quite strong.

Very handy freeware list for windows. I'm especially fond of Windows powertoys allowing me ot put cleartype on my big old CRTs

I forgot to mention the shopping find of the day yesterday -


They also make BBq sauce, and it's quite excellent, not ot mention the silly picture on the front. Apparently they're a fairly local Florida company.

Hm. I'd really like to see what the actual parameters are for lj top 40.

My LJ is now at #8, but it bounces all over the place each update. It doesn't seem to differentiate between individuals (like me), communities (like craftgrrl), or lj-specific journals (like news)
