I met three of my radio friends for dinner on Friday night at the Saddleback Ranch down in Hollywood. Our buddy Jayar was in town for the weekend. Fun times. My friend Bryan is the PD at KSGN/Riverside, CA, and he's a professional photographer. He took some photos of our merry little group roasting marshmallows for our s'mores.
Pictured are (l-r) me, Lara Scott (middays at The Fish/L.A.), Bryan and Jayar (afternoons with The Joy FM/Sarasota, FL).
Yes, we were intentionally trying to burn the mallows.

But trust him for his grace,
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.
Dear brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the Lord's return. Consider the farmers who eagerly look for the rains in the fall and in the spring. They patiently wait for the precious harvest to ripen. You, too, must be patient. And take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near.
Don't grumble about each other, my brothers and sisters, or God will judge you. For look! The great Judge is coming. He is standing at the door.
For examples of patience in suffering, dear brothers and sisters, look at the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. We give grat honor to those who endure under suffering. Job is an example of a man who endured patiently. From his experience we see how the Lord's plan finally ended in good, for he is full of tenderness and mercy.

Hmmm. Wow. I'm more of a conduit of God's when I bless someone or say, ''Grace be to you.'' I'm actually asking God to open up a conduit of grace to them. And because we live by faith in future grace, those are powerful words to be uttering. I'm suddenly in on God's work, what he's doing in someone's life.
So when you say, ''God bless you'' or ''Grace be to you,'' remember what you're asking. Maybe say it more often...people need God's grace.

To which I email back: I think it's written in the general rules of snorkeling - or at least in Wikipedia....
Snorkeling (British spelling: snorkelling) is the practice of swimming at the surface of a body of water while equipped with a diving mask, a shaped tube called a snorkel, and usually swimfins. In cooler waters, a wetsuit may also be worn. Combining these tools allows the snorkeler to observe underwater attractions for extended periods of time with relatively little effort.
Dick replies: And if I am correct the Human Body of Water (98%) completed for me
All that is necessary...fins are there.
To which my brother Jason replies: Wiki is good, but Merriam-Webster's can be counted on for the definitive answer...
One entry found.
snor·keled; snor·kel·ing Listen to the pronunciation of snorkeling \-k(ə-)liŋ\
: to operate or swim submerged using a snorkel
So, as I read it, you need to submerge yourself into your own human body of water and operate with a snorkel. That's a photo-op I shall await with great anticipation!
