mid-week update….

There was an ice storm last night so it was a pain getting to work today. I am glad to have my car back though and especially thankful that the alternator was covered by warantee. Now my radio doesn’t work, I guess it has to be reset since they had the electrical system out. Too bad it doesn’t have a reset button or “ctrl-alt-delete” like a computer does. I was hellishly busy at work today but I am pleased to report that I got done what I had planned to finish. Tomorrow will be busy too and I also need to pay bills. I was looking at my eating record and see I have been getting slack with my diet: I need to fix that too before I get fat again !

Nancy Pelosi is a lame ass fool !

She says that giving money to Planned Parenthood will stimulate the economy ! I heard this on the radio driving home today and I looked it up just now. I hesitate to call her a fool because I don’t want to offend fools: what an immoral dumbass she is !

sunday evening…

Piglette,Mike, and little Mike came down this weekend. Baby Mike is getting close to crawling I would say; he knows the moves but can’t get the traction yet. We all went on a shopping expedition yesterday and I am pleased to report that we didn’t spend a lot. Today my house is beset with some sort of virulent pestilence: Sweetous in bed all day, I have been feeling bad this afternoon, Mike is moping around too. I hope the baby doesn’t get sick.

This is bizarre ! One would hope that our law enforcement and prosecutors would have better sense; not to mention the legislators who make these laws.

A Cat Named Lucky

If you thought this was going to be a heart wrenching story about a cat that got run over by a truck then had to walk 100 miles home after being bitten by a snake, you would be wrong…..

The idols of finance capital are starting to topple. As Christians, we are in a unique position to advocate the transition from a profit-centered system of worship to one centered on the primacy of human development. – read this article in National Catholic Reporter

Why is it that [The Beatitudes] are so revolutionary that they actually cause the world to be turned upside down – and that those who espouse them as principles for daily living… are made to suffer persecution for daring to suggest that they are true? – This is a site for Progressive Christianity which is good counter weight to some of the excesses of the Christian right.  I generally agree with their ideas about economics but they tend to be “pro choice”  and in favor of “gay marriage”  both of which are wrong.
