Holy Toast

Before we even turned on the news or opened the paper this morning, we knew that the Vatican had chosen a new pope. How? Well, as we were making toast for our breakfast, a puff of white smoke issued from the toaster.Then we were amazed to find what was surely a sign from on high: a piece of toast emblazoned with the unmistakable image of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the new Pope Benedict XVI.

It's just a little reminder that you should take a moment to appreciate the miraculous in everyday life. Today we give thanks for our daily bread, for the guidance and leadership of the Church, and for the manifestation of his Holiness Pope Benedict through a humble kitchen appliance.

Today we'd also like to give a shout out to one of our loyal readers, Jose, who's into hiking, fishing, and hunting -- yep, he's the outdoorsy type who's been convincing us to join him. He's an avid fan of thebestrecurvebows.com, owned by one of our good friends. It's a site made especially for hunting aficionados and if you're a novice or an expert, you'll take interest in the site, too. Click here for more information. Jose, let's hang out soon, man!

P.S. Can't decide whether to use a compound or recurve type of bow? Read this.
