Happy Maha Shivaratri


(lit., night of Shiva) The night of the new moon in late February that is especially sacred to Lord Shiva. Devotees repeat the mantra Om Namah Shivaya throughout the night; on this night each repetition is said to equal the merit of a thousand repetitions. (via www.syda.org)

I hope all of your lives are filled with a thousand blessings.

AND Congratulations to Stefanie and Patrick who welcomed Samuel Patrick Russo into the world on Saturday! He was 3 weeks early!

I can't believe that no where in your Blog do you mention me? What am I, chopped liver? I would at least thought I would have gotten a little bit of mention as I am here on the far side of the world defending freedoms frontier from terrorist. Oh well, I guess I see how I rate.

Since we finally got internet though (a week before I leave) I thought I would check out your sight and see what all the hub bub was about. Pretty neat. Anyway, stay safe and I will talk to you soon as I will soon be back in the islands.
