I could launch off with a long polemic on the subject of Easter, but I’m not going to. We live in perilous times where a humble and contrite heart is called for if we are to petition Heaven for help. We can only survive as people when we do not have the hearts of beasts – and there are a lot of savage beasts who would be our masters. The progressive and woke have as a common thread, their hatred of Jesus Christ and what he taught.

Live abundantly, love your brother as yourself, love God with all your might, promote goodness and charity. By this alone can we defeat evil.

Easter is also a time for families. I hope that you can spend time with yours today. If not, over the phone with the gift of FaceTime.

I wish all of you a very happy Easter.

 

What about a few maps?

 

 

Isolated Populations in Canada

Note that it says no “year round access to roads”. In the summer, many of these locations are accessible by primitive roads.

 

Where precipitation drops below 20 inches yearly defines the start of western US.

Coasters

The Tallest Rollercoaster in Each UN Recognized Country.

Tools: Excel for Sorting, QGIS for Mapping

Notes: This is a map of the tallest rollercoasters (coasters) in each UN recognized country. Only operating coasters were considered for this map meaning that unbuilt/defunct coasters were not considered. Mountain coasters were not represented on this map because most of them are accurately measured for height.

    • I just finished an egg hunt with an egg hunt with two grandsons. They’re old enough to prefer eggs with money in them.

      • Hehe…I will always be Camperfixer, one can never deny longstanding. And MrsC is for some odd reason still all too happy to be associated as such.

        Terrifically Spring today, unusual for the Rockies…but no complaints. A little Easter message on the neighbors deck overlooking the cattle in the greening pasture (the cattle quickly got bored.) Shared an excellent ranch style meal (meaning hot and hearty and lots of it) and some great conversation. Almost nap level. Perfect.

  1. Happy Easter to all. About to have the last vaguely local sibling (NYS) and a couple local friends over for dinner.

    Looks like John beat the odds.

    Some of those Canadian communities actually only have road access in the winter, over ice roads.

    -Kle.

  2. A living example:
    “If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.”
    So, we hope 🙂

  3. “Live abundantly, love your brother as yourself, love God with all your might, promote goodness and charity. ”
    The progressive and woke love using similar words to tell us why we should be happy with all they are doing.

    God bless us all.
