Peter Cetera & Richard Marx: Hard Habits to Break

Peter CeteraDoes Peter Cetera age? 

We’re fairly certain that the former Chicago front man was belting out FM-radio classics like “If You Leave Me Now“ back in the mid-1970s, but take one look at this guy: it seems clear he hasn’t aged one bit.

And neither have his love ballads.

Find out for yourself Saturday evening.

That's when Cetera takes the stage at WinStar World Casino for an 8 p.m. show that also features the equally gifted Richard Marx.

With the group Chicago, Cetera penned and provided vocals for soaring hits like “You’re the Inspiration,” “Hard Habit to Break” and “Stay the Night.” His powerful vocal chops served him well when he left the band in 1985 to concentrate on a solo career. Subsequent hits included “One Good Woman,” “The Next Time I Fall” (a duet with Amy Grant) and “Glory of Love,” from the movie “The Karate Kid, Part II.”

Combine that with a performance from Richard Marx — whose string of hits in the late 1980s and ‘90s include “Right Here Waiting,” “Hazard,” “Satisfied” and much more —and you won’t find a more romantic spot than Saturday night in Thackerville, Oklahoma.

I got into a discussion with some evigaelncal Christians about early Christian rites and stumbled on the the following this is from the writings of St. Justin (Justin Martyr), written around the first half of the second century.=================================================Chapter 65. Administration of the sacraments.Having ended the prayers, we salute one another with a kiss. There is then brought to the president of the brethren bread and a cup of wine mixed with water; and he taking them, gives praise and glory to the Father of the universe, through the name of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, and offers thanks at considerable length for our being counted worthy to receive these things at His hands. And when he has concluded the prayers and thanksgivings, all the people present express their assent by saying Amen. This word Amen answers in the Hebrew language to ?E????? (so be it).And when the president has given thanks, and all the people have expressed their assent, those who are called by us deacons give to each of those present to partake of the bread and wine mixed with water over which the thanksgiving was pronounced, and to those who are absent they carry away a portion.====================================================Any devout Catholic recognizes the above as the Liturgy of the Eucharist and Communion Rite. 1900 years, and very little change from the Original.

This one is challenging for me to think about beaucse pretty much my entire life is finding shortcuts and it's so routine now.@cathy mentioned keeping a water bottle in bed. My sofa is my main spot when I'm awake I go there after getting out of bed to wake up, take most of my rests there, do a lot of my activities from there, eat meals there, etc.So I keep lots of things handy there in various sized baskets that can be shoved away for space or pulled closer as I need them including: all of my meds and supplements, chapstick and nail clippers and lotion etc., snack foods that aren't perishable, seasonings I most often add to foods as I'm eating like garlic powder and black pepper as well as soy sauce, napkins, tissue, toys and games to play/with, craft supplies of various types, a pack of cards for solitaire playing, letter writing supplies, whatever books I might be currently reading, notebooks and pens for list making and to jot down reminders, etc. I've found it's a lot easier to keep my spaces clean and organized if I remember to pick up one thing, or a handful of things if possible, when I get up. So, if I'm going to the kitchen to make some lunch, I bring all the dirty dishes back with me from any previous meals or snacks. That way I don't have to gather up the energy to do both the meal prep and the cleaning for two separate trips. Combining tasks is a great short-cut. When someone offers to take me on an errand, I always ask if we can stop at any other places I'll be needing to go soon so that I can kill all those tasks with one stone. On the one hand, it's more exhausting to do so much in one day. On the other hand, it's fewer days I have to get up and leave the house and run errands! Email is a wonderful shortcut for me if I can email someone instead of calling them. Phone calls take way more spoons away from me than emailing or other internet exchanges, so that's a HUGE short-cut for me. Pop off the info I need to send in mere minutes vs. ending up stuck on the phone for an hour (or conversely letting things go way too long beaucse I just haven't had the energy to use the phone!)Bathing shortcuts if I just can't make it to the shower but need to be clean, baby wipes make a nice temporary substitute to bathing. It takes a bit less energy to clean myself up that way and it tends to be less traumatic for me emotionally to get clean that way than to shower. I keep multiples of certain things around the apartment so I don't have to get up if I need them: for example there are two boxes of tissues in the living room one by my computer and one by the sofa, then one in my bedroom, and of course tp works in the bathroom and paper towel in the kitchen. I have a pair of scissors in every room of the house, pads of paper and pens in several key places for messages/reminders/lists. We won't get into what my purse looks like so that I can make sure I always have what I need on hand when I'm out of the house and will never have to make a side trip somewhere just to get something.
