The Classical Saturday Morning Coffee Break & Prayer Revival


February 29 is the birthday of Italian composer Gioacchino Rossini, born in 1792. He is mostly known for his operas (both the "Lone Ranger" and "Bambi" themes are from Rossini's "William Tell" Overture), but he also wrote piano works later in life called "Sins of Old Age." Here is one piece called "Ouf! les petits pois!"

Rossini died shortly after his 18th birthday in 1868.(H/T Isophorone Blog)


My love of coffee is not some shtick to entertain you folks. Our current coffee maker isn't cheap. Do I hold the opinion of "Price is no object for coffee"? No!(H/T Winston GOPe)

When The Coffee Addiction Gets Out of Hand


Good morning World Wide Moron Horde. Before we get to the Prayer Revival, just a few housekeeping matters. (Rulz for those of you in Sanborn)

1) This is an open thread without any 100 comment requirement. You are free to lurk, opine and/or bloviate away the morning.
2) Maple Syrup may be applied to any breakfast item you wish.
3) Be considerate to others and/or nice.
4) Feel free to run with sharp objects if you must. We prefer you didn't.
5) Have a wonderful weekend.


Thank you Annie for today's following Prayer Revival...........

AoSHQ Weekly Prayer List

Please submit any prayer requests to me, “Annie’s Stew” at apaslo atsign hotmail dot com. Prayer requests are generally removed after four weeks unless we receive an update.

Prayer Requests:

2/3 -Washington Nearsider has been and remains sincerely grateful for the prayers and well-wishes of the Horde. He has withdrawn his TSP and has enough money left to get through late March – early April. He will accrue debt with the custody hearings which begin 3/6. He has 3 interviews scheduled for the week of 2/5. He is also attempting to expand his custom model building services to bring in additional income by leaning on 20 years of experience building models of all kinds: building planes, tanks, ships, etc. Please contact him through the comments or email Annie’s Stew, and she can send you his direct contact information. He sends his thanks for his daily dose of sanity in an otherwise crazy world, and for the constant stream of wonderful Fani Willis euphemisms.
2/28 Update – Washington Nearsider has learned that this coming Wednesday, he is likely to lose full custody of his two young children until he can replace the salary he lost after being removed from his federal position. While he is still pursuing a higher-level job, he has started working at the local Home Depot, more to keep his children insured than for the wages. He has several more interviews over the coming week or so and hopes that at least one of them will pan out. His savings will run out in about three weeks, and then things have the potential to become extremely difficult; however, three weeks is three weeks, and anything could happen between now and then.

1/20 – Jewells said she has spent the last 2 days recovering from the latest chemo treatment. Praise God, it has gone much better. She still had pain, but was able to manage it with oxy, but it makes her very weak.
2/15 – Jewells has an update that the PET scan showed great results, and her MRI showed no cancer!

2/3 – Teresa in Fort Worth would appreciate prayers for Leigh, the director of a school for students of all ages with Down Syndrome. Leigh has been diagnosed with Soft Tissue Sarcoma. The tumor was removed this week, and they think they got all of it. Leigh would appreciate the prayers.
2/17 Update – The mass in Leigh’s shoulder is benign, and she does NOT have soft tissue sarcoma. She thanks everyone for their prayers on her behalf.

2/3 – Reforger asked for prayers for his Coworker, “D”, a widowed mom of 4 who is having a rough time with daughter #1. The daughter is skipping school, was caught 3 times and now police and social workers are involved. “D” is beside herself. She is having to miss work (and pay) to do probation stuff and keep appointments with “therapists”.
2/10 Update – Reforger reports that Coworker “D” and her daughter are doing better. He also relayed a funny story that ended up with him being able to bless “D” with another $200!

2/3 – Polliwog the ‘Ette would appreciate prayers for Inspector’s back pain. It’s been bad enough that he’s had to admit it’s a problem. It also keeps him from sleeping or being able to do even mild exercise, both of which are important for managing his blood pressure. They’d appreciate prayers for complete healing, but also wisdom on how to prevent future problems.
2/10 Update – As soon as she asked for prayers, God brought to mind something that helped Inspector the last time, but they’d forgotten to try. His back is substantially better, and he’s become convinced that it’s the sitting, not the exercise, that causes problems, and that is also a victory.

2/3 – Fenelon Spoke asked for “P”, who needs prayers for his return to faith as a Christian. Also, prayers for Pam, who needs continued healing after a pacemaker insertion, are appreciated.
2/24 Update – Please keep praying for “P” and his faith.

2/8 – It’s me, Donna, asked for prayers after some bad lab tests. It turns out it’s not as bad as thought and easily treated. Thanks so much for the prayers.

2/10 – Sock Monkey asked for prayers for his BIL, who woke up 2/9 with no feeling in his legs and unable to walk. After a lengthy visit to the ER, a growth was discovered on his spine. Doctors were only able to remove part of it during an 8.5 hour surgery on 2/10. The mass is probably cancerous, but they don’t know what type. His prognosis for walking again is not high. The family would appreciate prayers for healing, strength, and comfort.

2/10 - Mindful webworker asked for prayers for a dear, long-time family friend, Levi, who is in a desperate, dangerous state of distress and is an immediate threat to himself and others. Please send up prayers that he can swiftly be freed from the demons that confuse his mind and torture his soul, and that his family would be protected, and that he would return to Jesus.

2/10 – Martini Farmer asked for prayers for his son, who lost his job this past week due to DEI.

2/10 – Berserker-Dragonheads Division is in the hospital. He had a cardiac cath, then was sent straight in for bypass surgery.
2/11 Update – He had 2 arteries 100% blocked, 1 that was 95%, and another that was 80%. So he had a quad. He says the hospital and staff are great.

2/17 – Muldoon humbly asks for prayers for his daughter Michele, for healing. She has suffered for years from severe debilitating migraines that have resulted in her becoming largely withdrawn from society.

2/20 – Lady in Black requested prayers for her stepmother, Bonnie. She was diagnosed with breast cancer 9 years ago. About 2 years ago, it came back and she had a mastectomy. Now she has a lump showing in her lung and is getting ready to have a biopsy. She is depressed and very worried. Any prayers for her would be greatly appreciated.

2/21 – TecumsehTea sends many thanks for the prayers for Pastor Joe. He had his post-surgical followup today. Stitches are out, no radiation or other treatments are needed. In 3 months he will have another MRI.

2/21 – Prayers for the family and friends who mourn the loss of GnuBreed.

2/24 – FenelonSpoke asked for prayers for Joanne, who has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, stage 4. Prayers are also needed for Karen, Joanne’s niece, who will have to manage things for Joanne (as the closest family member).

2/26 – Alex the Chick reported that Bandersnatch passed away last night.

2/27 – rhennigantx asked for prayers for his friend Tim, who had a stroke on Sunday.

For submission guidelines and other relevant info, please contact Annie's Stew, who is managing the prayer list. You can contact her at apaslo at-sign hotmail dot com. If you see a prayer request posted in a thread comment, feel free to copy and paste it and e-mail it to Annie's Stew. She tries to keep up with the requests in the threads, but she's not here all of the time, so she may not see it unless you e-mail it to her. Please note: Prayer requests are generally removed after four weeks or so unless we receive an update.

2 Corinthians 4:8-9
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair, persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.
