Perceptions of religious imagery in natural phenomena are called simulacra. Like when my neighbors had me go into their house because they insisted that the face of Jesus was ingrained in their polished wooden door. God bless them both!

Then there's pareidolia, when you look at something like a cloud in the sky and think you see a rabbit or other familiar form.


The father of two was tongue-tied as he called over his wife to take a look. Both were dumbfounded, but after a minute or two, they were so hungry they ended up eating it.

Seeing it's the Labor Day weekend holiday, some of you will be grilling your family favorites. I want to to make a recommendation. They are called Celebrity Pork Chops. As God is my witness, I've never, ever had a more moist, tender and flavorful pork chop ever! I promise you, if you enjoy chops, the Celebrity is over-the-top delicious. I'm not sure if the supermarkets carry them, but I'm certain The Butcher Shop on Dartmouth Street in New Bedford sells them. After you try them, write to me and let me know your thoughts.

In the meantime, enjoy the holiday with your loved ones.
