Ash Wednesday

Remember, man, that thou art dust, and unto dust thou shalt return.

Lent, of course, means that prayer, fasting, and almsgiving are especially in season; but for us at least, it also means that pretzels are in season! On a related note (related to eternal salvation, that is, not to pretzels), we received some pictures taken by a friend who was at Thomas' Baptism, and we've made a web album for them here.

Oh, and one more thing: the Tigers opened Spring Training play with a 5-4 win over the Atlanta Braves. Go Tigers!

I think you guys like those pretzels too much to eat them during Lent.

Hey, the monks invented beer to drink during Lent! So we can't give that up, can we?

Hey, we're just trying to be good traditionalists over here :)

The monks in this part of the world invented pretzels just for Lent, and perfected some pretty substantial beers just to get them through the fasts.

Keeping tradition alive, now that's something I'll drink to!
