A few weeks ago The Purging Lutheran rid his home of a cheap, vibrating shoulder massager. Today we cast out a cheap, vibrating back massager. It was meant to soothe and relax your aching back muscles plus that stingy part in your buttockal area. That it has been sent far away suggests how successful it was at curing what ailed us. Just so you know, My Sweet Rib or I did not spend any dollars bill on the two items. Rather, MSR got these through an awards program at her work called ‘Spotlight’. The real shame here is that we didn’t spend those points on more worthwhile freebies such as gift cards for books, gift cards for videos, or gift cards for music. Books? We got ’em! Shelves upon shelves of books about alligators all the way to zizzer zazzer zuzzes. Videos from Alien to Zaliens. And music? Oi! Who doesn’t have ABBA’s greatest hits? And who doesn’t have ZZ Top’s greatest hits? I’d wager if you have one of these you probably don’t have the other one. File this item under ‘Lesson Learned’.
God spoke to Moses and Aaron: “Speak to the People of Israel. Tell them, Of all the animals on Earth, these are the animals that you may eat:
“You may eat any animal that has a split hoof, divided in two, and that chews the cud, but not an animal that only chews the cud or only has a split hoof. For instance, the camel chews the cud but doesn’t have a split hoof, so it’s unclean. The rock badger chews the cud but doesn’t have a split hoof and so it’s unclean. The rabbit chews the cud but doesn’t have a split hoof so is unclean. The pig has a split hoof, divided in two, but doesn’t chew the cud and so is unclean. You may not eat their meat nor touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you.
