Our Crazy Goats

May 26, 2017

We were watching funny goat videos on Youtube, and decided that since our goats make funny noises, we should put one up too. Our goats had a different idea.

During the interview segment of the miniseries Band of Brothers, Major Dick Winters quoted a passage from a letter he received from Sergeant Mike Ranney, “I cherish the memories of a question my grandson asked me the other day when he said, ‘Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?’ Grandpa said ‘No…but I served in a company of heroes’.”


Back to the Basics

This is an excellent article written by someone fed up with big church productions and rock bands. I happen to agree with a lot of what he says. Although not a deal breaker, I can only handle it in small doses. But having said that, attending one that has a band, but teaches the Bible, is preferable to one that doesn’t and tries to rewrite it. My preference for music does not dictate my church, God does. I just do it in smaller doses, like I said.
Outside of church, it’s rock and roll all of the way.

My prayers for the people of Manchester, and the latest victims of terrorism. May God strengthen and comfort those who survived, and although I’d like to say a lot about the people who committed the crime, I will let the vengeance belong to God.


Scourge of the Lawn Mowers Revisited

May 22, 2017

I mowed the back and one side of the yard today, and for once it was a semi-pleasant experience. Due to the ridiculously unreliable nature of our other lawn equipment, we purchased an electric mower (battery operated). It was great, and will be even better when we get a second battery, so that while one is charging, we can mow. I only had to pull out the gas push mower at the very end. No stalling, no fumes, no pulling until my shoulder was shot, no spark plugs popping off and I get to keep my first born.
SO, if you’re like us, and you can’t get the lawn mowed without rubbing a few bones together and slapping someone with a dead chicken, do yourself a favor and buy an electric mower.


A Bit of Art

While out and about this weekend, I bought this unpainted pie plate set.  The bottom is what it all looked like when I bought it. I still have another coat to go on the top.
