BOOKS RECEIVED and the guy with the “Best Job In The World™”


I have a huge stack of books to work through, but the books are still coming. I appreciate people who send books from my wishlists.

First, Signs of the Holy One: Liturgy, Ritual, and Expression of the Sacred by my friend Fr. Uwe Michael Lang:


The Augustinian Person by Peter Burnell:


Speaking of stuff from amazon, when one of you uses my search box or links, I get a percentage, but also a lot of fun.

“What fun?”, you ask?

First, there is no way I can’t tell who orders what.  Unless, of course, you tell me.

One of you, a scientist and engineer at NASA, sent me a note of things he has ordered with my search box for his work.   I am not making this up.

Nerf rockets


and with the launchers, balls

Emoji stress balls

Fun noodles

This guy has the best job in the world.  He and his team are figuring out how to shoot stuff accurately off of a rover.

I can hear it now:

Lock and load one round of the M-2017 nerf projectile!

BEST Job In The World™.

I can imagine getting up and thinking “I get to launch nerf rockets today… FOR SCIENCE!”

So, everyone, you don’t have to tell me what you order and I can’t find out on my own, but this guy made my day.

ALWAYS use my search box.  Father needs dental work.

UPDATE 14 July 2017:

From the nerf nerds of NASA.


Notice the “angry birds” balls, too.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is how we build modern spacecraft.
