The Missions: San Francisco and San José

Unless the mission is oriented by charity, that is, unless it springs from a profound act of divine love, it risks being reduced to mere philanthropic and social activity...Consequently, being missionaries means loving God with all one's heart, even to the point, if necessary, of dying for him. - Pope Benedict XVI

local time: 3:47 am

event: at approximately 2:30 am a blinding chain of sparks and deafening series of loud pops and crackles a filled the air.

cause: the double line from the street to the house fell from the side of the house and the electrical cable struck a rose bush which caused it to seperate. the ensuing technographics burned the rose bush and knocked out electricity to the house. the wire dangled four feet above ground across the street.

solution: call the guys who own the cool insulated gloves to come, climb a ladder, snip the wires, and clear the wire from the street.

conclusion: run a new wire at a reasonable time.

thought: i'd prefer to be woken by something less mundane at this hour of the morning.
