Some new books!

Good news everyone!  I recently took a ride down to my local Barns & Nobel to pick up quite a few books.
I had read in my past a book called "The Gargoyle" by Andrew Davidson and needed my own copy.  I probably spent about $150 on books.  Among which I bought 4 of Stephen Hawking's books, including his new book "The Grand Design"
I am only about 24 page into it, but I must say that I am enjoying it thoroughly.  You do need to know some prerequisites, such as string theory being revised to become M theory and such.
I'm going to keep this short and sweet, simply because I cannot keep my nose out of this book for very long.

Unordinary experience

I went over this weekend to visit my family and we took a typical ride over to church. I myself am not a religious man, but it would be rude of me to disrespect my own families customs. 4/5ths through the undertaking of being in church and almost near the end the presidor appeared to be slumping a bit in his chair. We all waited for him to move up to the alter to lead us after Communion.

During prayer, Father John Benedict died during the final mass of the day.  He was 76 years old.

Being one who has had much encounters with death throughout his life, I did not take much mind to it;  I didn't even know the man.  But to see the sheer raw emotions on the faces of Catholic partitioners, I was flooded with grief for them.  Gentlemen, I will see you on Monday.
