Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

Actually, not so little face, the guy was built like a brick outhouse.

As an aside, tramp is used the same way here as overseas, though not very often.

Oh boy! It's really interesting how the English language can cause problems! Understandable if it's a foreign language but the differences between English speaking countries is amazing. A few examples come to mind, boot = trunk etc. never mind physiological ones! Thanks for that y'all!

BTW, I love Texans. They are way better than those wishy, washy New Englanders, or those West Coast freaks. Oops!

Yes, they are a breed apart. We in Minnesota are taught at an early age to look down on them. However, as I've gotten older I started to realize how great they are. Strong, independent, red-blooded, traditional Americans, ignorant as hell, but I would share a foxhole with anyone of them. Besides having low IQs they just have one other problem....their worship of the Dallas Cowboys....a second-rate, minor league football team.

Tom, thanks for your comment. Now with you agitating and all, are you saying all Texans are intellectually challenged?! As a non US resident not sure if you're one mean .... ( !) or I've missed the joke again!

Texas is truly a different world. A friend and his wife lived in the country south of Dallas, and he told me if I hear a gunshot it's just a neighbor shooting an armadillo in their vegetable garden or a rattlesnake between them and their car. When my friend drove his truck to work, he walked out the door with his coffee mug in one hand and a .357 Magnum in the other for the rattlers. Another Texan I know once shot a repo man on his property, and only had to fill out a police report. A real Texan doesn't dial 911 in an emergency. It's a far different place than the People's Republic of Maryland where unfortunately I call home.

Hi Peter, they sound like they live in the wilds! Self sufficient at least! What's wrong with MD?

I've come to the conclusion that in this day and age ALL politicians are suspect, that's for sure. They are puppets, and power & wealth above all! But not in God's books. Today's gospel points out the temptations of Christ and I'm thinking instead of saying with Christ 'I will adore God alone' some have given in to temptation. Prayer can be the only answer.

Maryland is an overwhelmingly liberal democrat state- high taxes, just legalized gay marriage and casinos, a pro abortion "Catholic" governor. If I could afford to move, I would.

By the way, in Texas they call armadillos "possum on the half-shell!" laughing

Blessings, Pete

Clint, when I was last in Alaska they showed us an ermine and explained that it was a Texas polar bear. biggrin

Les, I think it's the size. The saying goes, "Everything's bigger in Texas" but the fact is, Alaska is 2-3 times larger.

That's very true. Austin nowadays is probably more like San Francisco than anywhere else.
