No pics of Josh or Mollie in that last post… so here’s to equal treatment… Mollie (the toddler) feeding Molly (the dog)… too cute I know the lighting isn’t very good… but Josh’s block creation is great! Great kids! Great supporters! Great summer! Great God!

Summer Fun

We are currently in Edmond, OK (Google map). We are the missionaries for VBS at Edmond Christian Church this week. They had 120 today! Praise God! We are staying with Roger and Bobbie Mannschreck and they have made us feel completely at home. Except that this is actually better than home since we: a) are […]

July 31st, 2006 · Comments Off on Money and Happiness

2 for you about money and happiness… I’d like both please 🙂 Happiness, money and giving it away “Would you be happier if you were richer? Many people believe that they would be. But research conducted over many years suggests that greater wealth implies greater happiness only at quite low levels of income. People in […]

Say it isn’t so Floyd

July 28th, 2006 · Comments Off on Say it isn’t so Floyd

Floyd Landis has tested positive for high levels of testosterone. This puts his Tour title in jeopardy… and if he really was doping then he should be stripped of the title and banned forever… but I doubt he was doping. There are natural reasons this could happen… and I’d think that riding the best ever […]

One way of looking at the world

July 24th, 2006 · 1 Comment

This report… by The Hive Group… is an incredible way to look at various stats about the world. I could easily waste about 2 hours manipulating the sliders and checking out the results. Be sure and read the notes below the report… to see where the stats come from and to find out why they […]

Fearless Floyd is Fantastic… and Fast

July 22nd, 2006 · 2 Comments

And he’s back in Yellow! I know I’m not the only American who likes the Tour de France… but there aren’t many of us! Since the readers of this blog are typically more “cultured” than the general population… I’m probably OK to keep posting about “le Tour”. Anyway… after what could only be called (in […]

End of the Spear

July 21st, 2006 · 2 Comments

Angie and I finally saw End of the Spear last week. Great movie. I’m sure most of you have already seen it… but I’d recommend it to anyone who hasn’t seen it yet. I thought that it would be “too Christian” and turn off a lot of people… or that it would be “too secular” […]
