CANADENSIS, P.A. -- A man in the backwoods of Pennsylvania has turned the House of God into the House of Pogs.

There's plenty of mystery surrounding the defunct Our Lady of Fatima Roman Catholic church. Its front lawn boasts a gigantic, 24-hour-a-day yard sale. There hasn't been a church service there since it closed down about six years ago, but its doors are always open -- and they're overflowing with VHS tapes, children's toys and old fishing wire.

My home town seems to have a hard time staying out of the news! I remember that church during it's better days. My old church in Canadensis has the Amish farm stand on the weekend.
