I can't remember if I've posted this video before.  It was sitting on my computer for a spell.  Time to move on.

And because I wasn't sure about the above, here is one more.  I've heard from a good number of people that thought I was moonlighting as an actor as the doctor at the end of this commercial.

Is that Tyson? It sounds suspiciously familiar to the quote "no battle plan survives first contact with the enemy," which I've heard attributed to Napoleon, Eisenhower, and Churchill.

All those seem to be apocryphal though as I think the real legitimate first version of that quote is significantly less snazzy although attributed to just as sharp a mind, Helmuth von Moltke the Elder, the very German 19th century field marshal who said, "No operation extends with any certainty beyond the first encounter with the main body of the enemy."

Well regardless of Tyson, Churchill, Eisenhower, Napoleon, or von Moltke, it's a fascinating thought in few words.

That actor DOES look like you at first glance. So that's really how the organ refurbishment and the paintings have been funded, eh?

That story about the boy getting to be priest for a day was touching. May God's healing touch be upon him.
