Knives and scissors sharpened! Scissor grinder! By Sep 6, 2016 Tony the Scissor Man. Courtesy Chris Baer Antonio Tony the Scissor Man DeCarlo walked the streets of Marthas Vineyard every summer, mending umbrellas, sharpening knives, and grinding scissors for local customers. Wielding a 150-year-old brass schoolbell once used by his father, he rang out his services in a three-beat waltz, calling out Umbrellas to mend! Umbrellas to mend! Knives and scissors sharpened!

DeCarlo hailed from Manhattan, the son and grandson of traveling grinders from the mountains of Campobasso province in southern Italy. By the 1960s, New York Citys last seven pack-carrying grinders were all members of his extended family.

Anthony.annon- Peter On the Shore God tells us an amazing thing: that even before he created us he knew us and called us. He discovered the concept of servant leadership and it has transformed his life. The idea of vocation is central to the Christian belief that God has created each person with gifts and talents oriented toward specific purposes and a way of life. a strong impulse or inclination to follow a particular activity or career. a divine call to God’s service or to the Christian life. a function or station in life to which one is called by God: the religious vocation; the vocation of marriage. 1400-50; late Middle English vocacioun < Latin vocātiōn- stem of vocātiō a call, summons, equivalent to vocātus past participle of vocāre to call see Kate 1 + -iōn- Zion Examples from the Web for vocation Practical Ethics William Dewitt Hyde It was simply a change of vocation, and there still remained a market for grain, hay, straw and other produce of the farm. Catholic interpreters, however, basing their conclusion on the Fathers of the Church, are at one in saying that God bestows this gift either on all that pray for it as they should, or at any rate on the generality of those who dispose themselves to receive it see Beelen, Kanbenbauer, on this passage. Alphonsus : that God determines for every man his state of life On the choice of a state of life. As lay people they remain “in the world” and often exercise careers while giving a priority in their lives to prayer, witness and service. vii, viii P.L., CLXXXII, 242 seq., 249 seq., of which the last two date only from the twelfth century, and are capable of another explanation, cannot be seriously quoted as representing vocation as practically obligatory .
If the jury is seated by the end of this week, opening statements willbegin Tuesday. Those released Thursday morning for cause, meaning potential bias, included a man whose cousin’s husband worked as a federal law enforcement officer for the Bureau of Land Management and called the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge by Ammon Bundy and his followers “destructive to their movement.” He said he last saw his cousin’s husband at his home on Easter, and discussed the refuge takeover while enjoying a microbrew from Burns. Alsoexcused was a man who saidhe supported the widow of occupation spokesman Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, who was fatally shot by state police on Jan. 26. The widow has obtained a lawyer and said she plans to sue the government over Finicum’s death. The man also said the investigation into an alleged “coverup” by the FBI regarding the firing of an agent’s gun at Finicum or his truck could make him question what the government puts forth in this case. “It is a negative against the FBI and the government what they did and how they proceeded,” he said. When asked if he could set aside his views and opinions, the man answered, “I’d like to say I could, but I’m not sure. It’s in the back of my mind.” The judge thanked both men for their candor and excused them without conferring with defense lawyers or prosecutors. Three other potential jurors were excused due to hardships. One man was let go after he explained that his company would not reimburse him for his service on a federal jury and that he is the primary earner in his family of seven.Clicking Here
