"Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust. Where the good die young, it's all die must..". Isn't that a verse in that "Beat Street" film song I heard before? And it's wacky weather again today. Tornadoes in some states and summertime in New York in the beginning of February. Is this that global warming climate change we should all go green 2012 thing. Anyway, hey bloggers, for what reason is every other person walking around town today with black crosses and smears on their foreheads. Is today Halloween for a certain group of people? And then I passed by a church, and there he was. A Priest standing on the church steps with a bowl of some black stuff, painging passerbys foreheads with more of those x's and crosses, yelling "ashes". And there was a sign nearby that read "Ash Wednesday Service 7:00pm". Oh, it's Ash Wednesday according to that Gregorian Calendar. And what does that mean. A day of ashes on a Wednesday. And ashes for what. Well I think it is some sort of religions holiday and that this is another one of those Wikipedia consultations for me. And whatever this day may mean, happy Ash Wednesday.
