Re: The Rescue is Back on The Menu!

Nibbler said: It sounds like a better rescue than most. The ultra orthodox are going to believe that people that don't show up to church are genuinely in need of rescuing ( meanwhile I wish someone would rescue me from church, not to church ; )) so rescue plans will always be on the menu.

Re: Time's Up
