Now I understand the controversy

January 1st, 2011 Comments Off on Now I understand the controversy

I have lived in several differnt parts of the US now, and I have always been accused of labeling all soft drinks “coke” even though I don’t.  I refer to them specifically.   A Mt. Dew is a Mt Dew, a Dr Pepper is a Dr Pepper, a Sierra Mist is a Sierra Mist (even though it used to be a Sprite).  Generically and taken together, they are known to me as soft drinks.

I saw this map, and now it all makes sense.  I was raised in a portion of the country that largely chooses “other” an finds itself in the vast minority.  Wow.  So whats up now all you mid-westerners who accused me of saying Coke all the time?  Now I have my empirical data!

This guy puts to words some of the things I think about technology – my favorite?  “The most amazing technology that has ever existed is being wasted on spoiled brats!”  Take a look!

Too Much water

January 29th, 2008 § 2

Funny story. Last week I had to fly down to Charlotte to pick up a moving truck for a friend. Being the health conscious person I am, I took my liter Nalgene bottle full of water with me to the airport thinking, “I can stay hydrated on my trip.” » Read the rest of this entry «

Looks like a great new Book

November 29th, 2007 § 2

This will be great for people like me who love Edwards, but don’t understand a word he says. Thanks to a great postmodern era reformed mind, we have what will become a new classic.

Signs of the Spirit is Sam Storms new book in which he makes Jon Edwards tome “religious affections” more accessible.

A Book You have to get

August 31st, 2007 § 1

Ok, It is rare for me to ever recommend a book.  But this is one EVERY Christian should read…  No Every person.  My wonderfully wise wife found this treasure and we have been reading it with the boys.  The Jesus Story Book Bible is a children’s Bible like many others, it tells the stories we are all familiar with in a way kids can relate to.  But in every single story, this insightful author points the readers to Christ.  Last night as we read the tower of Babel and the story of the birth of Isaac, Gage, Shea and I were all reminded that these things happened because everything was not quite right in the world, and God had a plan to send a child who would make it better.  These Stories really are all about HIM.  Too easily we get lost in the story and forget that, at least I do.  Read the book, I cannot stress it enough.  It is not just good for kids, its good for you too.

roll call

June 5th, 2007 § 5

OK so I know from random comments on the street that there are a few of you out there reading my words on the screen, breathing them in like funny gas at the dentist office, or a teenager with a can of Scotchgard.  That’s good I am glad you are having a good time, and I hope something I said made you chuckle, rub your chin, or feel a little queasy – but this is an official roll call – in other words, you have to leave a comment to say you are there.

If you read this, and fail to comment, then a pox be upon your house.  You will lose your hair and pigeons will poop on your windshield.

Thanks, now lets see who is watching.   Or are you brave enough to take your chances with your pigeons?
