Los Alamos

And in my fantasy-land I was imagining plugging

Fr. Glenn: ‘Take The Wheel!’

By Fr. Glenn Jones

What a world. Is this politician/celebrity/person being truthful or not? Or rather … is he simply seeking to further his own interests at the expense of others? It’s anyone’s guess. After all, we are deluged daily by the deceitful—scamming phone calls (“Let that warranty run out already!”), e-mails (“Boy, those foreign princes sure are generous!”), faked pictures and documents on unsocial media, etc. Sigh.

Now, we Catholics remember John the Baptist especially this weekend as we close the Christmas season on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. The Gospels tells us that John

Cultivating Vitality With Michelle: Easing Into The Water

By MICHELLE HARKEY-WILDE

Los Alamos

Okay, so last week we touched on why it is wise to ease into changes instead of making a whole bunch of New Year’s Resolutions which are likely to fade away into nothingness, leaving only the dreary sense of failure once again.

Last week I encouraged you to track your water intake for the week – don’t change it. Track it.

Got it? Good.
