A Happy New Year for all our readers.

A New Year means a new month and a new month means a New Indulgence Calendar that you can download. A regular one with names for you to pray for:

And a blank one that you can fill in with people you wish to pray for or remember.

Download either or both and don’t forget if you have a person who you wish included in next month’s calendar you can leave that name either in comments or post it at the WQPH website on our prayer wall.

It’s the 2nd day of Christmas and because it falls on a Sunday the feast of St. Stephen the 1st Martyr is trumped by the feast of the Holy Family.

Oddly enough according to the calendar of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops it didn’t get moved to a later day in the week (the 1st open one is the 29th as St. John the Evangalist gets the 27th and the Holy Innocents slaughter by Herod the 28th).

St. Stephen’s feast is an important one as it reminds us that while we celebrate the birth of Christ we remember that it’s his death that created “God and Sinners” reconciled.


I saw this on Christmas day (via Instapundit) and thought it was absolutely hilarious:

Of course if France WAS Bacon it would be a lot more popular

The English language is so much fun because of the way you can play with words. Groucho Marx made an entire career out of it.


A perfect example of playing with the English language in that way for December 26th.

Riddle:  Why is the feast of Stephen very big in the Gay Community?
Answer:  Because that's the day good King Wenceslas came out.

There is a reason why I don’t quit my day job.


Speaking of Running Gags Don Surber is constantly talking about wanting a Bentley. For the fun of it I searched online and look what I found:

Don Surber’s Dream Car

Hey Under $20,000 for a car with under 42,000 miles? That not only a pretty good deal but might even be in his price range.

I wonder if he can generate the cash via his tip jar? After all there are twelve days of Christmas and he has 11 left to do so.


Finally I was about to write that the old datechguyblog.com site is finally dead as it went blanks a few days ago. But this morning I tested it out as I was writing this and it came right up.

This seems to fit my theory that all of this has been running automatically for quite a while.

I’m not going to worry about it. My record of cancelling the account is still saved and has been stated publicly so I don’t anticipate some guy coming after me with a big bill in a few years but you never know.

Either way there is where I am and where I’ll stay and eventually I’ll get datechguyblog.com to point here too.

The Lord certainly works in mysterious ways.

There is a big hole where they are planning to build condo’s/apartments across the street from the old Romano’s Market (Now Lopez’s Market excellent Hamburg there btw they only do ground round) as the prepare to pour the foundation.

My first thought as I saw the hole was wondering if they would find anyone there. After all this was the Sicilian neighborhood of Fitchburg for many decades and the car dealership that was once there wasn’t there forever.

I often joke that you can tell you’re in a Sicilian Neighborhood because the shovels and lime are at the front of the hardware store. It’s one of the reasons why the urban riots you’ve been hearing about never quite manage to reach Italian/Sicilian neighborhoods

Unexpectedly of course


Of course Sicilians aren’t the only people who manage to keep their neighborhoods safe, to wit:

Toledo [a gang banger killed by police] was from Little Village, the main Mexican neighborhood in Chicago. During the George Floyd Memorial Riots last May, Latin Kings gang members took up armed patrol of Little Village and drove off carloads of potential black looters. So, in retrospect, it’s easy to see why black / Mexican solidarity turned out to be a chimera.

It’s almost as if the Democrats’ Coalition of the Fringes doesn’t quite jibe with the Democrats’ assumption of Black Supremacy.

It’s the certainty of punishment that prevents such crime and the certainty of no punishment that encourages them.


I have been saying since the Democrat crime ways began that if the various Sicilian Mafias offered to provide actual protection to a neighborhood from the Democrat crime waves hitting major cities they would have a major cash cow potential, The shop owners would find it worth the cost, the police would be happy to not have to deal with these problems when they know the local DA’s will not prosecute anyways and the various Insurance companies would be thrilled to not have to worry about giant large scale payouts.

More importantly for the mob is that people who are actually being protected are less likely to do anything to the people protecting them nor are likely to complain about other, shall we say less savory income streams said mobs are generating for themselves.

I’d not be surprised if this is already happening very quietly and unofficially, sort of like the deal between the mob and the feds during WW2 to keep enemy spies out.


Speaking of Sicilians apparently at least one of the Cuomo brothers is no fool:

You can be damn sure he kept more than emails as I suspect his brother the Governor has and they will have no compunction about using them to bring down people if and when they decide the time is right.

Anyone who is surprised by this knows nothing about Sicilians. As Tom Hagan said to a Senator once “All that’s left is our friendship.” When that friendship is gone look out.


Finally one of the hardest things about being both a devout Catholic and a Sicilian is the giant conflict that comes about when one is wronged.

The Sicilian wants vengeance and wants it badly while the devout Catholic sees vengeance for what it is and resists it.

Of course for some this conflict is easily solved:

I suspect the end quote of that clip is very popular in mob circles

It was great to be Catholic and go to confession, you could start over every week”

Of course such a person needs to be informed about the sin of presumption. But for those who don’t bother to know their faith ignorance is bliss, at least on earth.

Here is the indulgence Calendar for December.

And the blank calendar if you want to fill in all your own names

You know ever since I’ve started the indulgence calendar stuff (I don’t think I’d call it a ministry) things have happened to make it difficult. Last month the difficult reached the blog but that suggests it’s something worthwhile.
