  1. It's beyond that. The tank is empty and it's coasting downhill at this point.
  2. Well, I did hear VPW say "Lo Shanta Lamaka See Tay"...so there's that.

    Q: What goes well with Coronavirus? A: Lyme disease. Edit: I wanted to edit this to assure you I take this grave situation quite seriously. Sometimes, though, a bit of dark humor can help to minimize the stress.

    Then they go back home and take a souvenir. What could possibly go wrong?
  5. When I was a kid in the 1950's, Vacation Bible School was a popular summer activity for elementary school students. The content wasn't too intensive, coloring, crafts, singing, group activities, etc. I think a lot of "stay-at-home" mothers saw it as an opportunity to get extra work done without having to supervise their kids at the same time. I have no idea how that plays into the idea of an adult summer program at HQ. People were perhaps a bit more accepting of it because the name conjured up a memory of something familiar. That's just my guess.
  6. We can't know for sure. I would say, though, it's a real possibility. The Way always seem to focus its recruitment efforts on exercising a "trophy mentality". In other words, "If we could get such and such a famous person to take PFAL, the world would sit up and take notice." There is currently a certain global, quasi-religious cult that relies heavily on this approach. I'm sure you can guess their name.
  7. This made me chuckle.The first 2 years I was in FellowLaborers, we didn't even have telephones or TVs. The only access to a telephone was a public pay phone at the truck stop down the road and the cost of a long distance call was outrageously prohibitive. My third year, I was in a house that had a TV, but they kept us so busy there was little time to actually watch it.

    No problem. You didn't misinterpret my post. I just dragged it off-topic. I like the "holy kiss" advice, also. (Won't you be glad when it's OK to pick your nose again?)

    Surround yourself with positive people.
  11. Soooooo........It's another offshoot?
  12. Drug smuggling across the Mexican border has been going on since long before any of us were even born. There were a lot of small time operators back in the 1960's The cartels, however, came into existence as gang rivalry escalated in the 1980's, long after Geer became involved with The Way. He may or may not have smuggled drugs, but he wasn't part of the cartel activity. Is it possible he embellished his past to increase his street cred.?
