11 ways to be more self-sufficient in the new year

Self-sufficient living is all about providing for your own needs— and the needs of your household— without resources or help from the outside. To become more self-sufficient, you need knowledge and skills, plus motivation and a spirit of independence. The reasons for living a self-sufficient lifestyle can be political, social or personal, but whatever the motivation may be, learning how to become self-sufficient can offer a feeling of security, even in the event of a disaster. There isn’t a han...

The Boston Bruins Should Do Some ‘Shadowing’

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, The Bruins won’t face more firepower in back-to-back games this season than in these 48 hours, with the Capitals here at the Garden Thursday night, followed by the Black and Gold’s visit on Saturday to Toronto.... When it was over Thursday night, Ovechkin (2) and Backstrom (1) collected three goals in the defending Cup champs’ 4-2 win. The Bruins limited their chances, holding the Capitals to 21 shots, but as if often the case, the Capitals’...

Time To Think Development For The New York Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, If you want to rate degree of demoralizing defeats, be my guest. If you believe that Thursday’s 4-3 loss to the Islanders at the Garden in which the Nomads got the winner with 1:26 remaining in the third period on their only shot of the final 20 minutes — while the Rangers poured 17 on Robin Lehner — leaves more scars than the four defeats preceding it, in which the Blueshirts were outscored 22-5, well, OK. But while this five-game skid is disco...

Produce Fresh Vegetables in The Comfort of Your Home!

When we think of growing plants, phrases such as ‘High maintenance’, ‘Unreliable’ and ‘Time consuming’ spring to mind. But this doesn’t always have to be the case… and Aspara proves this!Aspara is a smart indoor garden that encourages the growth and consumption of fresh, healthy vegetables and herbs! Remembering to water the plants is a thing of the past; a scaled-down hydroponics farm system has been neatly integrated into the design, allowing for a reduced amount of wasted water, a faster pl...

9 sustainable living tips to take from our grandparents

Our grandparents and great-grandparents lived in a simpler time, and we aren’t just talking about technology. During the Great Depression, many rural areas didn’t have running water or electricity, and things like proper refrigeration, freezers and air conditioning were a luxury. What’s more, big-box chains and massive supermarkets didn’t exist, and you didn’t have the option of throwing a pre-packaged meal into a microwave or hitting a drive-thru for lunch. Many modern conveniences are great, ...

Mary Shows Us How to Live in Communion with the Trinity

Ad Jesum Per Mariam. To Jesus Through Mary. This phrase captures one of the central tenets of Catholicism: that the surest path to knowing and loving Jesus is through His mother Mary. As the one who cooperated in the Incarnation of the Word, helped start His Ministry, and suffered with Him in the crucifixion, Mary is uniquely suited to bring us closer to Jesus. If this is true, then it makes sense that Mary is also the way into the perfect communion of love that is the Trinity. As Peter Kreeft n...

Marie Kondo in the Garden, and Life

I couldn’t agree more with what this Washington Post reviewer wrote about Marie Kondo’s approach to “tidying up” in her new show on Netflix. Unlike her TV predecessors, Kondo brings a calming influence to the surroundings — even asking the owners if she may take a moment to kneel in a particular spot and silently greet their homes. This is a noble and overdue concept for the home makeover and real estate genre — a chance to express gratitude for any home, rather than the perfect home....

Infinite and Eternal

No one was ever saved other than by grace, from Abel to the present moment. Since mankind was banished from the eastward Garden, none has ever returned to the divine favor except through the sheer goodness of God. And wherever grace found any man it was always by Jesus Christ. Grace indeed came by Jesus Christ, but it did not wait for His birth in the manger or His death on the cross before it became operative. Christ is the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. The first man in human his...

Wonderful Counselor

I am turning my attention away from blogging for the next few days. Here is some homiletical content for our readers to ignore! Deism became an immensely popular idea during the 1700s in Colonial America, an idea held among some of our Founding Fathers. They believed that God made the world but that he stepped back and let it work on its own without intervening or interfering. The God of Deism is disconnected and uninvolved with the affairs of this world. That is not the God we worship. He is ac...

Coyotes Weekly: Season Slipping Away?

Is it time to hit the panic button in the desert? The Arizona Coyotes, losers of six of their last seven, are fading fast. They’re dealing with a multitude of injuries and haven’t won in regulation since the first week of this month. They haven’t beaten a current playoff team since a 3-0 shutout victory against the Nashville Predators back on Nov. 29, and they’re beginning to fall dangerously far behind the competition in the Western Conference in the race for the postseason (Arizona is nine poi...

Coyotes Weekly: Fighting the Injury Bug

Let’s not sugarcoat things – it was a rough week for the Arizona Coyotes, both on and off the ice. They started things off on Dec. 6 against the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals. Entering the week riding high after winning their fourth straight game on Dec. 4 against the Los Angeles Kings, the Coyotes got off to a good start on Thursday against the Caps, as Christian Fischer opened the scoring just 4:48 in. The teams would then trade goals in the second period – Jakub Vrana tie...

Advent’s Promise of Peace and Forgiveness

“When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves” -Genesis 3:6-7 The story of the Fall is familiar to all of us: disobedience, blame, exile, death. But before the angel bars our fi...

The Rich Hockey History In Boston

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, History has become almost a dirty concept nowadays, even here in the history-lovin’ Hub. We’re really not into that yesterday thing. Old is out. Particularly in sports. Fan and media focus is ever-centered on the next game, the next trade, the next live slice of craziness to play on the Jumbotron. OMG, it’s a free pizza and . . . a T-shirt! Followed by, of course, a 100-decibel eardrum assault blasted through the Garden audio system. Be ...
