Walk, Don’t Run (with lyrics)

Ventures Walk Don't Run
(Turn down the volume slider on the right!)

OH walk don’t run ‘cause you know you can get hurt.
Running is messy ‘cause you kick up the dirt.
Walk don’t run, if you know what’s good for you.
OH YEAH!

Walking’s a method of travel you should choose.
Running can mess up the soles of your shoes
Walk don’t run, ‘cause you’ll get blisters, corns and athlete’s foot.

So it may take a little longer,
to get where you’re going.
Hey, so WHAT!!?
Think of the breath you’ll save.
Don’t be a slave to the crowd!
Plus it’s easier.

Listen to me I have no reason to lie.
Walk don’t run, since you know that you can’t fly.
Walk don’t run,
walk don’t run, walk, don’t run.
DON’T RUN.

W-A-L-K  D-O-N’T R-U-N.
WALK!

Gabriel from Heaven’s King sheet music in PDF

Gabriel from Heaven’s King sent to the maiden sweet.
Brought to her blissful tiding and fair ‘gan her to greet.
Hail be thou full of grace aright for God’s Son this heaven’s light.
For man’s love will man become and take flesh
of thee maiden bright mankind free for to make of
sin and devil’s might.

Gently to him gave answer the gentle maiden then.
And in what wise should I bear a child that know not man?
The angel said O dread thee nought; tis through the Holy Ghost that wrought
Shall be this thing whereof tidings I bring, lost
mankind shall be bought, by thy sweet childbearing and
back from sorrow brought.

Is It Worth Losing Your Manhood?

Marijuana Use May Increase Risk of Testicular Cancer

A new study from the University of Southern California (USC) has found a link between recreational marijuana use and an increased risk of developing subtypes of testicular cancer that tend to carry a somewhat worse prognosis. Published early online in CANCER, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society, the findings suggest that the potential cancer-causing effects of marijuana on testicular cells should be considered not only in personal decisions regarding recreational drug use, but also when marijuana and its derivatives are used for therapeutic purposes in young male patients.

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in young men ages 15 to 45 years. The malignancy is becoming more common … men with a history of using marijuana were twice as likely to have subtypes of testicular cancer called non-seminoma and mixed germ cell tumors. These tumors usually occur in younger men and carry a somewhat worse prognosis than the seminoma subtype.Testicular cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in young men ages 15 to 45 years. The malignancy is becoming more common, and researchers suspect this is due to increasing exposure to unrecognized environmental causes.

To see if recreational drug use might play a role, Victoria Cortessis, MSPH, PhD, assistant professor of preventive medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of USC in Los Angeles, and her colleagues looked at the self-reported history of recreational drug use in 163 young men diagnosed with testicular cancer and compared it with that of 292 healthy men of the same age and race/ethnicity.

The investigators found that men with a history of using marijuana were twice as likely to have subtypes of testicular cancer called non-seminoma and mixed germ cell tumors. These tumors usually occur in younger men and carry a somewhat worse prognosis than the seminoma subtype. The study’s findings confirm those from two previous reports in CANCER on a potential link between marijuana use and testicular cancer.

Question: “Hello, I was going to ask if there’s a way we that can get the equivalent of the pro-life advertising foundation, the Vitae Caring Foundation, for the Defense of Traditional Marriage? It seems like we’re about to get slammed on Proposition 8 at the Supreme Court; and we’re going to get officially declared to be ‘bigots’, and we’re going to lose our window of opportunity. But, we have an example in this pro-life advertising, where they have reduced abortion rates more than 35% in markets where they advertise. You have your own program Life on the Rock, November 18, 2010, Dr. Carl Landwehr, with Fr. Mark and Fr. Anthony, showing about this. Can’t we get this for the Defense of Traditional Marriage?”

Fr. Mitch Pacwa answers: “Actually, you have an excellent idea. However, there is a problem, Continue reading

Effects of Marijuana on Children

If a woman is pregnant and smokes marijuana, will it hurt the baby?

In school, these children are more likely to have problems with decision-making, memory, and the ability to remain attentive. … Since some parts of the brain continue to develop throughout adolescence, it is also possible that certain kinds of problems may appear as the child matures.

Doctors advise pregnant women not to use any drugs because they could harm the growing fetus. … Studies in children born to mothers who used marijuana have shown increased behavioral problems during infancy and preschool years. In school, these children are more likely to have problems with decision-making, memory, and the ability to remain attentive. Researchers are not certain whether health problems that may be caused by early exposure to marijuana will remain as the child grows into adulthood. However, since some parts of the brain continue to develop throughout adolescence, it is also possible that certain kinds of problems may appear as the child matures.
