Synopsis

Ned Flanders is reunited with his old flame, Rachel Jordan, from the episode, "Alone Again, Natura-Diddily". She stays at the Flanders house with him, and leaves briefly after Flanders molds her into his deceased wife Maude's image. Ned realizes that he needs to break his obsession with Maude. And sure he does, by having the Simpson family remove every reminder of Maude he has in his house, although Homer has a thing for putting Maude's things in the wood chipper, except for one: a sketchbook of designs for a Christian amusement park, Praiseland. With the help of the family and several Springfield citizens, Flanders builds Praiseland as a tribute to Maude, on the site of the abandoned Storytown Village (from "Lisa the Vegetarian"). Nedward Ned Flanders (circa 1939?- ) is a fictional character on The Simpsons, voiced by Harry Shearer. ... Alone Again, Natura-Diddily is the fourteenth episode of The Simpsons eleventh season. ... Homer Jay Simpson (voiced by Dan Castellaneta) is one of the main characters in the animated television series The Simpsons. ... A Christian is a follower of Jesus Christ. ... Amusement park is the more generic term for a collection of rides and other entertainment attractions assembled for the purpose of entertaining a fairly large group of people. ... To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ... Lisa the Vegetarian is the fifth episode of The Simpsons seventh season. ...


However, after Praiseland is established, it becomes very unsuccessful. But when a mask of Maude rises up in front of a Maude statue, the visitors who leave think it is a miracle. Eventually, anyone who stands in front of the statue (which Ned calls the "Miracle Maude", which he says will raise money for an orphanage) has a vision. Ironically, Ned finds out something unusual, by learning that the cause of everyone's "visions" is actually a gas leak. Ned reluctantly shuts down Praiseland, but it allows him to go on another date with Rachel Jordan.

The Daily Dome (10035 words)
I'm exiting my car at the garage after a harrowing drive, and it occurs to me again to call the inclement weather line, as surely the roads merit at least an unscheduled leave.
Right around the time I'm deciding to make my move to pass all three vehicles (the Ford, the car in front, and the rig in front of her) the Ford crosses into the left lane.
I'm embarrassed to say it took me a second to catch it, as it was not in 8 bit sound.
