Undocumented Local Craft Distillers. . .

It says so here.
"[A] man . . .the other day pointed out that I was never bored. I hadn’t thought of that before, but it’s true: I’m never bored. I’m appalled, horrified, angered, but never bored. The world appears to me so infinite in its variety that many lifetimes could not exhaust its interest. So long as you can still be surprised, you have something to be thankful for." -Theodore Dalrymple
St Hugh was a Carthusian monk and prior of the first Carthusian house in England. He eventually was elected Bishop of Lincoln. Among other things, he is the patron saint of swans. As the story goes, a white swan at Stowe developed a life-long affection for St Hugh and followed him everywhere, even guarding him as he slept.
O God, Who didst endow Thy servant Hugh with a wise and cheerful boldness and didst teach him to commend to earthly rulers the discipline of a holy life: by his intercession, give us grace like him to be bold in the service of the Gospel, putting our confidence in Christ alone; Who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God, forever and ever. Amen.-from the Customary of Our Lady of Walsingham
If the advertizing says "Makes a Great Christmas Gift!". . . .
O God, the Ruler of all, who didst call Thy servant Margaret to an earthly throne and gavest to her both zeal for Thy Church and love for Thy people, that she might advance Thy heavenly kingdom: mercifully grant that we who commemorate her this day may be fruitful in good works and, with her prayers, attain to the glorious crown of Thy Saints; through Jesus Christ Thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God, now and always and forever. Amen.
Clerical garb is IN once more. . .and not just those tacky short sleeved shirts with a touch of white plastic at the throat, either. The cassock is on the list also.
This is interesting.
