"Joy is a net of love...

...with which we can catch souls."

One of my favorite quotes by Mother Teresa, which I wrote down in my quote journal at least five years ago. But seeing it written on a chalkboard that's being hung up by a Missionary of Charity Sister at the Mama T-founded House for the Destitute & Dying is a WHOLE different story.

Today was another amazing, humbling experience, guys. Since we only had one day in Calcutta, we tried to fit a lot in. We started off "touring" a Hindu temple, where we had to take off our shoes, received red dot blessings on our foreheads & were handed lots of red flowers for praying, were shown the goat sacrifice area (with a goat waiting in line & blood pouring down the drain (sorry if that's too graphic!)), etc. Like Eric said, even if he could have taken a picture (no cameras allowed!), no pictures could describe this incredible cultural experience...we're both still processing it...

especially because that was immediately (i.e. next door) followed by another intense experience, visiting Mother Teresa's House for the Destitute & Dying. Hard, hard, hard. It's right in your face the moment you step in, beds everywhere, people with bandages on the backs of their heads, casts, super skinny, etc. It was really hard, but inspiring to see a huge diversity of volunteers helping out.

We also got to go to the Mother House, where the sisters live & where M.T.'s tomb is. Just resting & praying there (esp. as a quiet refuge from a really crazy city!) was wonderful & peaceful. And we walked through an exhibit that had her life story posted, & cool personal items, like her last handbag, last pair of shoes, several of her writings, including a journal entry on who Jesus is to her (about 25 descriptions on her was like I could FEEL how much love she had for Jesus ("I am His & He is mine"..."I am for Jesus & only Jesus," etc.) & her work with the poor. Seriously. SO inspiring!)

Definitely a life-marker to be able to do all of these things. We're so lucky.

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.

We know perfectly how hard it can be to find reliable information about [url=]Thoi trang nam[/url], and this can help you get started in the right direction. We are all familiar with the feelings of trying to find out about a specific thing and not even being certain of what is necessary. There are many individuals who publish fantastic content online, but they are not known, and that makes it quite difficult with trusting them. We do realize those feelings very well in our own exploration on the net. The following information and facts concerning this specific topic is well known and easily referenced.

The general complexities of women's and men's fashion

On the other side, men's fashion features a few choice goods that can exist eternally - which man is going to keep an eye out of position with a good-quality, tailored suit, for instance? Choose basic pieces, colors and materials and you'll never seem out-of-place.

Why classic men's fashion is amazing

A match will be worn to work in several occupations because of the professional look it provides to the individual, instilling a feeling of respect and confidence. Similarly a suit will undoubtedly be utilized to many social events, like a tuxedo to a black-tie event. This amazing versatility that allows matches to be used in virtually all functions is what gives it its eternal side and a permanent invest men's fashion.

Modern trends in traditional men's style

Though common men's styles can never be changed, it's interesting to observe that changes in men's fashion trends have brought certain common clothes back to fashion. The reputation of vintage clothing, particularly, has taken back a wide-variety of basic designs into men's wardrobes, such as that of the dandy man. 'Dandy'is a term used to reference men who dress in a classic yet luxurious way, working in a sophisticated method and placing importance on appearance. This trend for almost'over-the-top'classic style for men is evident from events including the'Tweed Run', wherever men and girls of all ages dress in particularly Victorian-style outfit and take to the streets on vintage bikes - with many of the men wearing perfect mustaches! This really is just one single of many examples of data showing the resurgence of such designs. Additionally, there are numerous sites online which focus on gentlemanly style - such as'The Dandy Project'and'Dandyism'- as well as complete web sites such as'The Art of Manliness'dedicated to giving articles on common men's fashion and grooming.

In conclusion, whilst certain issues with traditional men's fashion could be brought back as new movements, the basic outfits that they are based on will never slip out of fashion.
