Merry Christmas… Happy Birthday… and everything else…

December 31st, 2007 · 1 Comment

Wow… I’ve still been sick and/or busy because of trying to catch up after being sick. Some of the people in our community asked Angie and I if our church would help organize a Christmas party for the kids who live here. We were very glad to help out and the party went well. We […]

Asia Review Magazine in Taiwan?

December 11th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Can any of my fellow expats in Taiwan help me with this? I have a friend who has an article written about him and his family in the current (December) issue of Asia Review Magazine. He says it is available in Taiwan. I haven’t looked yet as I’m suffering after having a wisdom tooth pulled […]

Ebola Outbreak In Uganda

December 10th, 2007 · 1 Comment

I have missionary friends living in Uganda and one friend who recently left after spending several months there. I’m probably like most people in that I’m usually pretty busy with the stuff right around me… my own work, my family, Taiwan, etc. When I heard about the Ebola outbreak, I figured my friends were all […]

Quote of the POSK #17

December 10th, 2007 · Comments Off on Quote of the POSK #17

I think this is the right moment to consider a question which is often asked: If Christianity is true why are not all Christians obviously nicer than all non-Christians? What lies behind that question is partly something very reasonable and partly something that is not reasonable at all. The reasonable part is this. If conversion […]

BREAKING: Weirton, WV now has internet access!

December 8th, 2007 · 3 Comments

A few weeks ago I wondered if WV had internet access. At least Wierton does. To the visitor from Weirton, I don’t know who you were… but if you come back and leave a comment, I’ll send you a present as I mentioned in the original post. Seriously! NOTE: I love WV and *know* y’all […]

My Kids Have Learned to Play mp3s

December 7th, 2007 · Comments Off on My Kids Have Learned to Play mp3s

I’ve been tracking the music tracks I play for several months using Last.fm. I’ve enjoyed looking at the charts, discovering new music, and making friends with other people who have similar taste. Lately, my weekly artist chart is skewing toward bands like Jump5 and Go Fish because my kids have found my mp3 stash! I […]

33 Reasons the Steelers will beat the Pats

December 7th, 2007 · Comments Off on 33 Reasons the Steelers will beat the Pats

I’m a far bigger college football fan than a pro football fan… except for my beloved Pittsburgh Steelers. Outside of the past 4 years, while Nebraska has played mostly sissy football, each team is known for tough defense, passionate play, overachieving, and crazy fans. This Sunday, the Stillers have a chance to knock off the […]

Darwin Lives – *LIAR* *UPDATE*

December 3rd, 2007 · Comments Off on Darwin Lives – *LIAR* *UPDATE*

I like making fun of Darwin as much as anyone… but here’s a Mr. Darwin that gave everyone a big surprise and I won’t be making fun of him. He disappeared in a canoe in 2002… his smashed canoe was found soon after, but Mr. Darwin was missing. It hasn’t been said (yet) where he’s […]

Bo Big Red

December 3rd, 2007 · 1 Comment

Hopefully the nightmare is over! Actually I *do* know that calling anything in college football a nightmare is shallow… but I’m gonna stick with that term for now. I supported Frank Solich and Bill Callahan to the very end… because I’m a fan of the team and the school no matter who is the coach. […]
