So, based what I’m seeing on social (and non) media, I’m going to need to stay up and listen to Kanye West’s new album after the kids go to bed. 🎶

As a father I’m quite proud at how worn Rosemary’s St. Joseph’s Bible is. 💚

Fifty days of Latin on DuoLingo! I’m proud of myself for starting and sticking with this!

I watched 9 to 5 for the first time the other day. What a funny little movie! Not at all what I expected. 🎬

Thor Mirchandani’s article on fully homomorphic encryption in The Hacker Quarterly has me thinking about how you might use that with Kafka and micro services. Would be cool to have services acting upon events that are never decrypted. 🤔

Seit 3 Monate, stehe ich jeden Tag um 5 Uhr auf. Ich bete, Twittere, lese, und lerne Latein. Was früher ganz anstrengend war ist jetzt „meine Zeit.” Jeden Tag beginnt ruhig mit mir, meinen Gott, and Kaffee. Wunderschön. — Morgenroutine

Y’all, make sure you create a VM from the restore partition of Mojave before you upgrade to Catalina. This gives you an environment for any 32-bit apps you might have overlooked.

An actual, working pay phone found at a rest stop in Florida. It’s been ages since I’ve seen one of these.

Started Mark’s gospel again this morning. It’s amazing how quickly he gets rolling. John, baptism, temptation, disciples, miracles, 💥 🤯. I always leave chapter 1 with whiplash and I love it!

My first German homily (text & audio) in a very long time. I realize I’ve forgotten everything I ever learned about grammar! Y’all, pray for my longer sermon in November! — Dass sie Alle eins Seien

I’m late to the party on this, but Gemeinsames Leben is 🔥. I’m doing some serious highlighting.

Given what’s going on in the US and UK, it wouldn’t be awful if the queen asserted her authority. Honestly, we need a Christian prince more now than ever. What does she have to lose?

I can pretty much guarantee I’m the only person in the world listening to this album right now. 🎶

German Friends & Roman Catholics: Does anyone know of German-speaking clergy in the Diocese of Nashville? Please send their contact information to me if so. St. Mang isn’t very ecumenical without our Roman sisters and brothers! stmang.org

So, I want to get into MLS with Nashville’s new team. What’s the best way to watch games without cable?
