Grace Community Food Pantry, 245 Education Way, Bunnell, drive-thru open today from 1 to 4 p.m. The food pantry is organized by Pastor Charles Silano and Grace Community Food Pantry, a Disaster Relief Agency in Flagler County. Feeding Northeast Florida helps local children and families, seniors and active and retired military members who struggle to put food on the table. Working with local grocery stores, manufacturers, and farms we rescue high-quality food that would normally be wasted and transform it into meals for those in need. The Flagler County School District provides space for much of the food pantry storage and operations. Call 386-586-2653 to help, volunteer or donate.
Notably: It is National Ice Cream Day, which means: everyone flock to Sally’s Ice Cream in Flagler Beach, where all flavors flow with loving colors. Less happily, it is the anniversary of the inaugural flight of the B-2 stealth bomber (1989), one of the most technologically advanced and remarkable pieces of machinery ever developed, but also one of the most colossally useless pieces of military hardware ever developed: a single one of these beguiling monstrosities costs $2.1 billion (figuring in development cost, as it must be). Only 20 were built. With cute names for each. Watch the “Spirit of Kitty hawk” below. “The B-2’s expensive hypertechnology has been at once the awe of aviation and air power enthusiasts and the root of the plane’s political problems,” the Washington Post reported in 1999. “In the mid-1980s the Pentagon planned to buy 132 B-2s. But now 21 will be built, largely because Congress believed the cost was exorbitant and the mission, in the post-Cold War era, questionable.” Then there’s “The Most Expensive Fighter Jet Ever Built.”

I sailed from Fair Haven last evening as gently and steadily as the clouds sail through the atmosphere. The wind came blowing blithely from the southwest fields, and stepped into the folds of our sail like a winged horse, pulling with a strong and steady impulse. The sail bends gently to the breeze, as swells some generous impulse of the heart, and anon flutters and flaps with a kind of human suspense. I could watch the motions of a sail forever, they are so rich and full of meaning. I watch the play of its pulse, as if it were my own blood beating there. The varying temperature of distant atmospheres is graduated on its scale. It is a free, buoyant creature, the bauble of the heavens and the earth. A gay pastime the air plays with it. If it swells and tugs, it is because the sun lays his windy finger on it. The breeze it plays with has been outdoors so long. So thin is it, and yet so full of life; so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least serviceable.^ So am I blown on by God’s breath, so flutter and flap, and fill gently out with the breeze.
