On Good Friday I visited my painter friend from the NEIS program ... this is something he is working on..

The legend of "The Three Sisters" at Katoomba in the Blue Mountains

"The Three Sisters" are a major tourist attraction in Katoomba for people from all over the world visiting Sydney. It's about 2 hours from Central Sydney and just over an hour from beautiful downtown Werrington.

I took more piccies than this but space and time are limited. I visited the local Roman Catholic church and may have helped repair their vacuum cleaner by the power of prayer. I believe however it was due more to the effort of the Catholic electrician who explained how the church wasn't a church on Easter Saturday. He demonstrated the tabernacle which he opened and closed and explained how it is necessary for the blessed sacrament to be placed in the tabernacle before it could be a church again. Thie blessing of the sacrament was to take place that evening at 7.30 and then placed in the tabernacle at which time a red light would be turned on to indicate to the faithful that the church was functional and the holy spirit was present. My vacuum cleaner host flipped the switch to turn the red light on for a few seconds to demonstrate. I asked if he had invoked the power of the holy spirit but he denied it stating that if a true Catholic were to have come in he or she would have believed the holy spirit was present but as we were the only ones there it was simply a red light.

I guess this was the red light district of the church.

my water heater is leaking.. i may need a new one (sigh)
