Fun Fact

There's almost an equal split between the sexes on Tumblr - 51% male, 49% female.

I figured this post would be appropriate considering current events. My grandfather was a medical doctor and I remember him always washing his hands in this manor, and I’ve since taken up the method.

This image is a photocopy from a book by OUTDOOR LIFE entitled “HOW TO SURVIVE ANYTHING FROM ANIMAL ATTACKS TO THE END OF THE WORLD (AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN)” My scanner isn’t very good so I re-typed the whole thing below for anyone who cant read the text above.

WASH LIKE A SURGEON

Nothing fights germs like frequent and thorough hand washing. Even though we’ve been washing our hands without help since childhood, it’s smart to consider the hand-washing details that doctors employ. Short fingernails, good washing technique, warm water, and ample soap might just stop the next pandemic before it starts.

STEP 1. Turn on the warm water and wet your hands.

STEP 2. Apply soap to the palms and backs of your hands.

STEP 3. Rub your soapy palms together.

STEP 4. Rub your palm on the back of your hand, threading the fingers of your top hand between your lower fingers.

STEP 5. Rub your palms together, interlacing your fingers and scrubbing them.

STEP 6. Bend your fingers under, face your hands palm to palm, and scrub your fingernails together.

STEP 7. Wash each thumb by using the opposite hand to twist it.

STEP 8. Using your fingernails, scrub the palm of each hand in a circular motion.

STEP 9. Rinse both hands in warm water.

STEP 10. Dry your hands with a disposable paper towel.

STEP 11. Turn off the water, using the paper towel as a barrier to the faucet handle.

Despite being a fan of Marina for a long time, I never got around to making any of my own fan art of her until just recently. So I’ll finish the decade by posting my first fan art of Marina. Being her performance at Toronto was my first Marina concert, figure I just had to draw a scene from that show.

Forget about today’s commercialism of Christmas, the Amish have the right idea of Christmas that I find pleasantly refreshing in today’s secular society.

—————————————————————————————————-

You won’t hear the smooth voice of Nat King Cole singing “The Christmas Song” coming from an Amish kitchen as cookies are being baked for the holidays. Nor will you find the Amish home adorned with the most elaborate display of Christmas lights complete with a decorated tree beaming from the living room window.

All these customs that we (non-Amish) get excited for during the holiday season are considered too extravagant and unnecessary when celebrating Christmas in an Amish household. That’s not to say the Amish do not decorate their homes for the holidays.

Candles are lit and placed in the windows of Amish homes to represent the birth of Christ, while some Amish families may decorate their homes with Christmas cards from friends and family. Some of the more liberal Amish communities may even decorate with wreaths, stars, angels and garland, but you are least likely to find a Christmas tree or strands of lights in an Amish home.

“The more decorations involved, the less Christ is involved,” said Lester Beachy, a new order Amish man and author of “Our Amish Values.” Christmas is a very special time in the Amish community. A time to reflect on the true reason for the season.

On Christmas morning the family gathers around the head of the household to listen as he reads the story of the first Christmas from the family Bible.

“It has become a tradition in our home, since the Bible has been translated into Pennsylvania-Dutch instead of just German (or English), that we like to read the Christmas story in our Pennsylvania-Dutch dialect,” said Beachy.

Just like any other day, the cows must get milked and the horses must be fed. The family heads out to take care of the chores and then they reconvene for breakfast.

Finally, the children are free to open presents as they are presented to them from their parents. There are no Amish communities that practice the tradition of Santa Claus.

Amish boys and girls will not find the latest gaming devices or other top electronic devices that many non-Amish children will receive this Christmas. Instead, younger children will receive wooden toys, model toy tractors or books and handmade dolls.

Contrary to popular belief, a large majority of Amish children play with dolls with faces. This tradition of faceless dolls may still be prominent in more conservative, old order Amish communities.

Boys and girls may also receive sporting equipment such as softball gloves and bats, and croquet and volleyball sets. Family oriented games like board and card games are highly encouraged in Amish families and make great gifts. Beachy and his family enjoy engaging games of Dutch Blitz and Uno; two popular card games among the Amish community.

“In our community, we object to gaming devices. We want families to be together more,” said Beachy. “We Discourage gaming devices as it disrupts family time.” (This can vary from church district to church district. It would not be uncommon to see an Amish child playing with a battery operated gaming device, it would simply depend on the church they are a part of.)

Older Amish men and women would most likely receive gifts that are practical in nature and can be used in their homes or on the farm. Women may receive household items such as quilts and china while the men may receive tools for their farm or shop.

The traditional Christmas dinner is usually the highlight of the Christmas celebration. The Christmas meal is usually quite elaborate including roasted chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, salads, fruits, breads, cakes, cookies, pies and candies.

Each family tends to have their own Christmas meal and gathering and with Amish families being so large, these gatherings can last well into February.

“It’s not easy to get the entire family home for the holidays. Especially with many living in other states,” said Beachy.

Other Christmas Traditions:

Amish communities may have many different customs and traditions depending on the community they live in. Each community is different, but their message is always the same. Christmas is a time for Christ.

A Christmas program is usually planned at the schoolhouse each year. Amish children will put up decorations, sing songs, tell stories, read poems and put on plays in order to celebrate the meaning of Christmas.

Homemade treats and gifts such as quilts, toys or other small wooden crafts may be exchanged between the teacher and children. Amish children will continue to go to school throughout the Christmas season without the winter break that many non-Amish children enjoy because their school year is over earlier in preparation for the spring harvest.

The Amish have many non-Amish friends and even family members. Non-Amish visitors may be invited to share in Amish Christmas celebrations which may mean being invited to the school play or attending the family meal. Many Amish and non-Amish people work together and may exchange Christmas cards amongst each other.

Caroling is not just a tradition for the young people in Amish communities. Amish carolers travel to local nursing homes and shut-ins and bring with them gift baskets of homemade goodies like bread and candies to hand out. They visit both Amish and non-Amish care centers.

In Beachy’s community, each Christmas the community prepares a list of names of the elderly people in the community and each family is assigned a name. The family prepares something special for that person by making them Christmas cards, gift baskets or other homemade goodies.

Some of the young people in Beachy’s community have even created prison ministries. Amish youth travel to different prisons throughout Ohio bringing cards and cookies. They may also share stories and some of their Christmas programs with the inmates.

Overall, the main focus of the Christmas season in the Amish home is to honor and celebrate Christ. While much time is devoted to prayer and scripture, spending time with the family in relaxation and laughter is just as important to the Amish community.

greater-than-the-sword:

I don’t hate gay people.

I just think that their lifestyle is displeasing to God. But I don’t pick fights with them. I don’t even single them out in any way from people who live other types of ungodly lifestyles. I have no antipathy for them. They are not a “special kind” of sinner.

I am one of those people who truly believes that you can love the sinner and hate the sin.

So why all the focus and all the talking about how it’s sinful? Is this me attacking gay people?

No. I don’t like doing this. But the fact is that we now live in a world where having a disagreeing opinion on this subject is like having a chip on your shoulder. If someone finds out that I think a gay person’s lifestyle is displeasing to God, they don’t wait to find out whether I will hate them for it. They don’t wait to find out whether I will attack them or shun them or treat them different than other people. They assume. They demand affirmative acceptance and when I refuse to comply then it’s war. I’m forced into an arena where I now have to fight the very person I’m supposed to be loving.

So I guess this is sort of a memo to my followers. Jesus loves you. I’m not going to fight you.

God bless.

10 October 1985 » Happy 33rd birthday, Marina Lambrini Diamandis!

@marinadiamandis: I don’t want to be aspirational. That sounds like no fun AT ALL.

I know Marina’s performance in Toronto is probably old news by now, but being it was my first Marina concert, (and unfortunately the only one I’ll be able to attend for this tour at least) I’m posting anything I can find about it.

Anyway, here are some of my own photos taken at the show. I apologize for the rather poor quality of these photos, it was the best I could do. (That’s the last time I rely on a chintzy camera built into the cheapest smartphone that could be bought at Walmart for under $100.)

As far as I know, she wasn’t meeting with fans at this show (please correct me if I’m wrong, I gotta know if I missed out or not). Though I didn’t get to actually meet with her personally this time, it was still a dream come true to finally see her in concert, and I definitely plan to see her again sometime in the future.

She is Marina, and we are still the Diamonds!
