The 35th annual Dożynki Polish Harvest Festival at Corpus Christi Church in Buffalo, New York will take place this weekend on August 15, 16 and 17. The word Dożynki means a celebration of harvest and is a centuries old tradition by farmers in rural Poland.
The weekend long celebration will include traditional Polish food, music and drink. Festival highlights include music by the Melody Lane, Special Delivery, The Buffalo Touch and Phocus, the 7th Annual Buffalo’s Best Pierogi Contest on Saturday, August 16 at 4:30pm and the Harvest Mass on Sunday, August 17 at 11:30am.
The festival opens on Friday, August 15 at 6:30pm and closes on Sunday, August 17 at 8:00pm.
Corpus Christi Church was founded in 1898 and is located in the heart of East Buffalo’s Historic Polonia. It is on the state and national lists of historic places.
In 1986, Jon Bon Jovi was already contemplating moving the Buffalo Bills. The song “Livin’ on a Prayer” has a backwards masking sequence near the end where Bon Jovi reveals his intention to move the Bills. I have isolated the audio below. The reverse clips reveals the truth.
Section of “Livin’ on a Prayer” played normal.
Same section of “Livin’ on a Prayer” played in reverse.
You can clearly hear him say he is going to move the Bills.
If evidence was lacking on what Jon Bon Jovi wants to do, it’s now clear to me that Jon Bon Jovi had his sights on ripping a whole through the heart of the Buffalo Bills faithful for almost thirty years. He is the pure definition of evil.
I saw the below video this morning. If it doesn’t bring a tear or two, there is something wrong with you.
What the San Jose Sharks and the Make-A-Wish Foundation did here was simply beautiful. The Sharks signed 17-year-old Sam Tageson to a one day contract. He participated in pregame warm-ups, he got his own jersey, he skated through the famous shark head at San Jose’s SAP Center as the team took to the ice for their game and he stood with the team on the ice for the national anthem.
One simple photo speaks volumes as to why the current Buffalo Convention Center should have never been built. In a perfect Buffalo magical world, we’d be able to go back in time and tell the people who came up with the bright idea to do this not to do this. So it goes.
It is hard to believe that John Candy left us twenty years ago today. The only and proper way to to mourn him is by sharing the funny he brought us.
Uncle Buck is one my favorite films ever. It is fantastic on many different levels. John Candy was simply amazing and one of the funniest people ever. I wish he was still with us. He was the lovable loser in all of us.
The above clip is when Uncle Buck goes to his niece’s school for a meeting with the assistant principal. The walk and then the talk with Mrs. Hogarth are both funny and brilliant.
