Back from India

Monday, May 19, 2014      6 comments

I had a great trip to India. It was hot, very hot, but the time was well spent and I'm very glad I went. It's good to be home, though I have some recovering to do. I took a "nap" at 4:00 p.m. yesterday and ended up sleeping for 8 hours. So now i... Read more

Sickness and Hope

Saturday, May 03, 2014      5 comments

I'm up super-early this morning, sick as a dog yet again. As I sat here thinking about how often I've been sick this year, and my impending trip to India, one of my favorite passages from the Bible came to mind, John 15:1-11. I hope it blesses y... Read more

Today is the National Day of Prayer, and so I thought I'd post some New Testament verses on prayer. "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the on... Read more

So Long Team Huddles--And Blogs?

Thursday, May 01, 2014      5 comments

Interesting to find the "huddle" feature missing today. I've said for years, that this was the "lamest" part of SP so it's not as though I'll miss this feature. After all, they're allowing you to earn six more points per day with message board p... Read more

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Tuesday, April 29, 2014      5 comments

It's April 29, and it's MinneSNOWta! To be fair, though, it's really nothing. Sleetish-snow that won't stick. Looks like I'll be heading to the gym again. I'd rather exercise outside, but in addition to the chilly temps and wet conditions, the w... Read more

Oy--5 Days of Cold and Rain!

Saturday, April 26, 2014      1 comments

It's not winter, that's true, but it doesn't feel a lot different! The forecast for the next five days in the Minneapolis area calls for clouds, relative cold, and rain. Oh 20-25 mph winds to boot! Oh well, in about eight days, I'll be hea... Read more
