Discussion: Pope Francis, Catholics, and Christians in the news

In all versions of the Bible, we’re charged with looking after the Earth, the plants, the seas, and all living creatures. All of us, following Adam’s example; no exceptions. 
We now have record-breaking fires, heatwaves, floods, droughts - goodness, even the source of the Thames has dried up so it’s 5 miles shorter! And the Po river in Italy is barely a trickle! - who cares if it’s global warming or not???! Stop polluting, stop plundering, stop destroying what remains and start conserving and restoring what we can, following Biblical instruction. Sigh. *for Heaven’s sake*

Got the QB today :-)

Stepped away from it for a couple of hours, and got the last word almost immediately when I returned. Hard to believe I hadn't got it earlier. It's actually one of those words that shows up in a lot of the puzzles, so I'd have thought it would have occurred to me right away.

Oh, joy. The NWS has posted another Heat Advisory, for today, Sat August 6, through Monday, August 8th

You know the drill by now: Stay cool, stay hydrated

And yes, the rain missed us again yesterday

I'll write up something about drought after I finish binging The Sandman. Person's got to have his priorities

Speaking about wondering ...

Would there be repercussions if a drummer was to come out of retirement?
