Virtual Rosary Software


Beads were ok for the first two millenia. But isn’t it time for a software implementation?

Some of the features of Virtual Rosary 5.2:

* Requires no knowledge of the Rosary
* Super-easy operation
* All the prayers of the Rosary
* All Mysteries displayed, including the New Luminous!
* Scripture Verses and Meditations
* PrayerCast Worldwide Prayer Network
* Music Playlist Feature with MP3 Capabilities
* Optional daily Rosary Reminder
* Flexible, Well-designed interface
* Available for Windows, Mac, & Palm

Wait a minute. All the prayers of the rosary? I thought there were two prayers that you said over and over again depending on what bead you were on. And why does it need MP3 capabilities?

Weight Watchers Recipe Cards from 1974


This is pretty funny.

I found them while helping my parents clean out their basement a few years ago. They were neatly arranged in their own plastic file box. Plenty of the dishes seemed normal enough, but as I flipped through them, some of the recipes began to alarm me. And then I found the card for the “Rosy Perfection Salad.”

I fell over. Like I Iaughed so hard I started coughing and I fell back on the floor and I waved the card at my mom, who just rolled her eyes. “Can I please have these? Please?” I begged. “What do you want them for?” she asked. “To cook?” “No,” I said. She let me have them. I think they might have been my grandma’s, but she never copped to actually buying them. Nobody else did, either.
