Pizza Recommendation: 5 Loaves 2 Fishes

October 23rd, 2008 · 2 Comments

I wish I could do as good a job with restaurant reviews as the hungry girl who blogs at A Hungry Girl’s Guide to Taipei… but I already know I’ll fall far short. For example, I have no pictures and just don’t have the knack for writing about food/restaurants like she does. In my defense, […]

If you don’t know what POSK is… here’s the first one From: The World’s Last Night, CS Lewis, pp 89-91 Life on Other Planets I…fear the practical, not the theoretical, problems which will arise if ever we meet rational creatures which are not human.

Did Jesus Have Siblings?

October 22nd, 2008 · 5 Comments

A friend asked me this this question today… Actually she asked “Do you believe that Mary had other children?” I wrote the following reply… ————snip from email————– Short answer… yes. Actually I never gave it much thought because of this passage in Matthew 13: 54 Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in […]

Political Debates

October 8th, 2008 · 3 Comments

RealLivePreacher recently posted Why political debates aren’t very helpful From that post… So the debate becomes just another format for candidates to deliver campaign speeches. True, the speeches are more off-the-cuff, so you can see how they react under pressure. But that’s what we are hearing. Sound bites and campaign speeches. We hear what the […]

Corn Fed Tigers (plus Eric Crouch interview)

October 8th, 2008 · Comments Off on Corn Fed Tigers (plus Eric Crouch interview)

So the NU v. Mizzou game went just about as I called it. I’d look even more psychic if I’d have stuck with my original pick of 50-17. You win some… you lose some… and some you lose… you lose badly. Unfortunately, this week NU travels to Lubbock where things may get ugly again. Possibly […]

A few links about the Credit Crisis and Bailout

October 7th, 2008 · Comments Off on A few links about the Credit Crisis and Bailout

Some of you know that my degree is in accounting. I probably wouldn’t choose that one again if I could go back (I’d choose physics, most likely), but I did enjoy studying business, finance and economics. I found such study valuable in much of my work after college and before coming to Taiwan. I’m not […]

A Look At “Home Service”

October 7th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Home service (or furlough) is a regular part of most missionaries’ lives. For us, it comes about every 2-3 years and consists of us visiting various people and churches in the USA. Our next home service is scheduled for November 2008 to March 2008. It seems like this experience used to be called furlough and […]

Bring on the Tigers

October 4th, 2008 · 3 Comments

yeah… I know that Mizzou is gonna win this one… probably about 43-17 or so… but I still picked NU to win 33-31 over at Huskerpedia (because 32-31 was already taken) Here’s the deal… Mizzou has always been the sleeping giant of midwest football (along with Illinois) and it seems like they’ve finally put fences […]
