an interesting group…

Home | Christian Alliance for Progress

I found this site while surfing this morning. This group seems to be gaining in popularity and I am very sympathetic to many of their ideas. They are right on regarding economic justice and environmental stewardship. Their stand on abortion is just plain wrong and their stand on homosexuality is also problematic.

wednesday evening…

I’m all wore out from the bike ride we did after work. Sweetous and I rode the trails in Waters Landing for an hour. So I have just been listening to music on the PC and chilling out at the keyboard. I got a lot done at work today, hopefully tomorrow will be a good one too…

wednesday morning…

I got a lot done at work yesterday despite having started later than usual. I had to take Puppy to the vet to get spayed. I was anxious about her, but she is ok,  although not her usual frisky self.

I spend a lot of time on the internet, so yesterday evening I deliberately decided to let the computer alone and read on the porch instead. It was nice a cool with a breeze and very cloudy. Roxanne stayed out there with me to get petted whilst I read.

This morning has been non-hectic so far and I’m hoping things stay that way.

sunday afternoon….

The weekend sure has gone by fast ! Friday was a high stress day at work; was trying to get some stuff done but was deluged with special requests and such. Best Buy called me on Friday to get my replacement computer. I went to get it but noted that they were giving me my 2 gig memory in a bag, not the computer. I told them that was in the old computer when I bought it so they ought to install it as part of the warranty replacement. The Geek Squad guy had to consult a manager, but the manager agreed with my reasoning and they installed that for me. I picked the computer up on Saturday and then Sweetous and I had dinner with Steve and LB. Right now I am listening to music on the new  computer and  fixing all my bookmarks etc.  I may install some software today, but perhaps not ’cause I have a head cold and may goto bed early.

wednesday morning…

I went for a walk this morning before work and rode my bike with Sweetous both yesterday and the day before ! My Lenovo notebook is in the shop for repairs and now the old Toshiba is not working either ! BALLS ! One good thing about that though is I have been reading more. I finished a book last night: At Hell’s Gate which is the personal story of an American Soldier in Viet Nam who is now a Zen monk working for the cause of peace. The author tells about his own suffering and how he is dealing with it through the practice of mindfulness; an interesting and moving book, I recommend it.
