I am reading a great book for our times called Rediscover Catholicism by Matthew Kelly. It is not just for Catholics but for anyone who wants some real answers to living a genuine life in these times. If you just read the Prologue you will be hooked. Matthew is a great writer for this broad subject for many walks of life. He is clear in his chapters and has a lot of good information about living in our current times. It is hard to put this book down. Anyone wanting to find answers to life, give this book a try. You won't be disappointed. You can also get a free copy here plus the shipping.
I happened to find this huge black beetle pondering across my neighbors basement floor. She almost weighed as much as a full spool of quilting thread and was the size of the palm of my hand. She is a black rain beetle and is a rare find indeed. They take 13 years to mature and both sexes emerge just before rain and fall to mate then burrow underground again. The female does not fly only the male, so that was why she was walking in the basement. She was the neatest bug I have found yet. I set her outside to find a mate in the woods.
