Safety pins have countless uses.
- Many people have good luck charms.
- Many folks believe not being part of an accident or getting ill is merely a matter of luck.
I do not buy that reasoning but I am carrying a lucky charm in my left pocket.
Three days in-a-row I had walked past this safety pin lying in the sand. Last Sunday after mass at St. Bruno, I decided to pick it up and pocket it.
Well since that moment I have been safe, free of sickness, and I have not even cut myself shaving.
The safety pin can be used by everyone as a reminder to stay in safe situations
and take action for others’ welfare and our own individual safety.

Happy Summer Solstice to Dan and all
Today at 11:39 am CDT is the Summer Solstice, the longest day (and shortest night) in the Earth’s annual journey around the sun. The sun rose this morning (and will set this evening) at its northernmost points on the horizon, and will soon begin its journey to more southerly rising- and setting-points.
The Solstice falls approximately midway in the fortnight (June 14-28) governed by the rune Dag or Dagaz. This fortnight is the “door” which lies at the meeting-point of the half of the solar year when daily light is increasing, and the half in which it is declining. It is interesting to note this rune’s physical similarities and differences with Jera, the rune of the Winter Solstice, which appears opposite Dag in the Runic Compass. It is interesting to note, as well, that Dag’s literal meaning is “day” while Jera’s is “year.”
The Summer Solstice is also…
