Satur-deja Vu

This is post #52 of the Satur-deja Vu! Technically we spent a few weeks trying to settle on a title. We tried Week in Review, A Look Back, and other lame generic titles such as Hindsight Being 20/20. It has been a little over 52 weeks (we missed at least one) since Satur-deja Vu became a regular feature here at The Master’s Table. Since then we have gained over 100 followers. Here is a link to Saur-deja Vu #1 if you want to think back to a simpler time.

Have you tried any of these fine brands? There is a legitimate Dr. Pepper shortage. The pandemic not only cleared the shelves of toilet paper and bottled water but demand has been up for months for soft drinks. There is an aluminum can shortage because of the demand for convenient take home packaging in the 12 oz. cans. Dr. Pepper is aware and says they are doing everything they can to build a reliable supply chain. But it’s not like there aren’t other choices.

Here is a new product that no one asked for. Turkey dinner is not just a single flavor. There are several new flavors of candy corn in each bag; turkey and dressing, green bean, sweet potato, cranberry sauce and others. Brachs has an exclusive distribution deal with Walgreens which now has stores in all 50 states. I can’t imagine a run on these as much as I like actual candy corn.

*Candy corn is as a time honored, American tradition right up there with Jesus, Mama and apple pie. You are entitled to your opinion – but you may not necessarily be allowed to express it here. Don’t say anything in the comments that you wouldn’t repeat in front of your pastor. I will send him screenshots.

Have you seen the Halloween 2020 memes? It’s all true. Halloween falls on Saturday this year. There will be a full moon, a blue moon as a matter of fact, on October 31st. And because of the time change in the early morning hours of November 1st we will get an extra hour. That’s an extra hour of revelry if you’re the stay out all night type or an extra hour of sleep following trick-or-treating with kids before getting up for church on Sunday morning. Too bads it’s all wasted on 2020 and we probably won’t be doing anything this year 😦

Okay, now for funsies.

On the left: Delta shower faucet cartridge. On the right: Homer Simpson. My wife came home the other day, saw this part and said “Why do we have Homer Simpson’s torso?”

That would be magnificent. Imagine John Lennon (no pun intended) as a senior citizen that sounds a lot like Max Wright. That gives you Eugene Levy’s character in A Mighty Wind. From the people that brought you This is Spinal Tap and Best in Show.

Are they playing at Bunch Stadium? This screen grab is from a few years ago (note the real live fans in the stands) but there was no Deja Vu back then. There is an abbreviated MLB season underway and the Braves lead in the NL East. For the time being we are looking forward to SEC football as well.

Hang in there Pooh Bear. This too shall pass.

This week on The Master’s Table: Jesus was a Nazene not a Nazarite. I did respond in the comments and came back with an update to define Nazarite, an oversight in the original post. If you read 4 Random Thoughts I’m thinking every Tuesday for the Bible Study in Hebrews and every Thursday for the Internet Monk Radio upload. I like the idea of being set in a routine for at least a few weeks.

I need a clever, inspirational sign off that becomes my own thing. Since I don’t have one of those… Look for a sermon on the Unity website Sunday afternoon and Van Til will be in Monday morning.
