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.

At your expense, From Statista: Despite oil and gas prices falling from last year’s highs, the U.S. and European oil giants – ExxonMobil, Shell, Chevron and TotalEnergies – continue to rake in record earnings. After breaking their annual profit records in 2022, they all just posted their highest ever Q1 net profits, too. ExxonMobil made a profit of $11.4 billion in the first three months of 2023, double the $5.5 billion in the first quarter of 2022. French company TotalEnergies, meanwhile, reported a quarterly net profit up 12% year-on-year to $5.6 billion, while Shell and Chevron saw their profits rise about 5% year-on-year to $9.6 billion and $6.6 billion, respectively. For comparison, these numbers are two to four times Amazon‘s quarterly profit this year ($3.2 billion in Q1).
Now this: Two versions of this–Couperin’s “Les barricades mysterieuses”–ran a little over a year ago in this space, one for harpsichord, one for piano. Haunting much? Yes, and still. Here’s a third version, for guitar, performed by Raphaël Feuillâtre.

What would seem a short walk in Europe seems much longer in India, and as we tramped on past the bazaars of Alaipura, where the Muslim meat shops were, and the grain market of Rasoolpura with a convoy of ricksha drivers along behind us all droning reproachfully, ‘Ricksha, Ricksha, we felt like every other well-intentioned but misguided visitor to India who attempts to change the customs of the country for humanitarian reasons and only succeeds in alienating everyone, including the people he is attempting to help. It was obvious that if everyone behaved as we did, twelve thousand men would be thrown out of work and the communications of the city disrupted. Something rather similar had happened in Delhi before we left for Hardwar where every morning Wanda, being confronted by a hideously emaciated and contorted beggar and unable to stand the sight any more, had gone to a restaurant and bought an enormous meal which she had set down on the pavement before him. From that day forward he was not seen again. She had destroyed him.
–From Eric Newby’s Slowly Down the Ganges (1966).
