Here’s the story behind that photo – Blaze engulfs historic Baltimore church, topples its steeple

BALTIMORE — Baltimore firefighters battled a four-alarm blaze that sent flames shooting through the steeple of a church that traces its origins back more than 150 years.

Photos of the fire posted by the Baltimore City Fire Department on Twitter showed orange flames coming from the top of the steeple of the Urban Bible Fellowship Church. Firefighters used ladder trucks to spray water at the blaze, but flames eventually caused the top of the steeple to tumble down. A school next door also was damaged.

There are a lot of Christians virgins who have saved themselves for their wedding night only for the ceremony to be delayed. I have a feeling a lot of them are going to have a private ceremony, consummate, and then have a public ceremony with family and friends when this is all over with.

President Trump never made appearances in the White House Briefing Room until the Coronavirus outbreak, but I think he’s only doing so because it’s the next best thing than speaking at one of his rallies.

The media sure does look for any opportunity to label a person or a group of folks in a profession a hero.

Random tidbits about the old television series Alice.

  • I had no idea it was based upon a Martin Scorsese film, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore.
  • The waitress Jolene, was related to the Dukes of Hazzard‘s Jefferson Davis “Boss” Hogg. In one episode Sorrell Booke guest stars in this role, along with fellow Dukes character Deputy Enos Strate (Sonny Shroyer).
  • I knew Flo left the show and started her own place, but I didn’t know it was in Fort Worth.
  • In case you forgot how the show wrapped up:
    • After 9 years of trying, Alice finally gets a recording contract and is moving to Nashville with Travis Marsh. Vera announces she is pregnant and decides to be a full-time mother, Elliott having been promoted from officer to detective. Jolene’s “Granny Gums” dies and leaves her enough money to open her own beauty parlor in her hometown. Besides all three waitresses suddenly leaving simultaneously, by an amazing coincidence Mel has just sold the diner for a large amount of money to a real-estate developer and must close within days. On closing day, he surprisingly gives each waitress a $5,000 farewell bonus.

    The “Alice” section had to have been triggered by Jim Gaffigan’s bit on CBS Sunday Morning, right? Otherwise, I’m gobsmacked at the fact that I’ve seen “Alice” referenced twice in as many days. What’s next, “The Courtship of Eddie’s Father”?

    I’m not much of an End of Times person, but those who adhere to that part of Biblical Prophesy must be wetting their pants. In the span of weeks we have had: 1. destructive storms 2. earthquakes 3. world turmoil 4. pestilence around the Earth 5. the Great Deceiver is on television every day with a new tail to lull the Masses. Maybe I extrapolated that fifth point, but the Orange One sure seems to be in league with the Devil. Food for thought for those who read Old Testament.
