  •  I like to believe there is nothing coincidental or accidental in our lives. I am wont to ponder all as being part and parcel of Providence acting to evoke our awakening to the divinity hidden in our humanity … in all creation. Actually, it is more than my “liking” to which I refer. It is my experience.

  •  A couple of weeks ago, a friend posted on Facebook about a food recall. The “shocking” headline was about a popular refrigerator stable having deadly bacteria.

The food-borne illness you get from these bacteria is called listeriosis.
