GC, if those were the words to "Holy" back when I was a Methodist, I might have been able to tolerate the song. By the way, I lasted 12 years as a UU member. I might still be one if not for a divorce (she got the church in the settlement!). Thanks for the laugh.

Chris, I started watching the vidie, but don't have 25 minutes to complete it. Looks entertaining, however! Thanks for sharing.

GC, I like it! I am a former UUer, atheist and all. Ironically, I hate the old "Holy, Holy, Holy" song. As a previous life Methodist, it seemed we sang it every other Sunday.

And let's not forget the Kaffee Kantate!

Happy Thanksgiving to you as well, Randy, and to everyone! (And a sane Friday and weekend!)

"Pecan pie without coffee is a sin!"

There's a hymn that praises coffee -- and doesn't mention any invisible beings! To the tune of "Holy, holy, holy":

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee,
Praise the strength of coffee.
Early in the morn we rise with thoughts of only thee.
Served fresh or reheated,
Dark by thee defeated,
Brewed black by perk or drip or instantly.

Though all else we scoff we
Come to church for coffee;
If we're late to congregate, we come in time for thee.
Coffee our one ritual,
Drinking it habitual,
Brewed black by perk or drip or instantly.

(It's by Christopher Raible, a Unitarian Universalist minister; the third verse is more specifically UU. It's been said, with a grain of truth, that coffee hour is the closest thing Unitarians have to a sacrament.)

Hope all you coffee lovers (and others) have a Happy Thanksgiving. Pecan pie without coffee is a sin!

From ScienceDaily: many coffee machines release metals harmful to health; the scientists recommend extensive rinsing after decalcifying and before using them.

How is everyone today?

In my "next life", I'm going to eat two donuts every day of my life--with coffee. I love donuts, but hardly ever eat them because they're so bad for me. At my age, maybe it's not too early to start in this life!

Chris, I'm not sure what you're talking about, unless it's the Paris horrors. Hopefully, all will turn out well.
