In an attempt to lighten up on Saturdays, I’ll attempt to publish some videos that I have seen that I think are fascinating or fun.  I hope that you enjoy them.

Change is in the Air

LaptopThe human experience is full of change.  Nothing is consistent and nothing is guaranteed.  Some parents wish that their children would never grow up, because at each stage of life there’s something new and unique to enjoy.  People enter and leave our lives at various times, and try as we might we are not able to keep them where we want them.

Weekends are back.

This summer, I suspended writing for the weekends, only popping up occasionally, but starting this weekend the analysis will continue.  So, if you aren’t already subscribed to my RSS feed, you’ll want to check back here this weekend and every one up until the election because we’re going to keep talking about the grand themes and what comes up next.

Mama Archer has given this blog an award.  At least, I think it’s this blog.  Nowadays you have to be pretty good to find where I’m writing.  (Whew!)

In any case, I’d like to thank—wait a second.  She says I got this award because I’m one of her top 5 commenters.  So I got this award because of my quantity of comments.

Hmm.

Preaching on Sunday

Say Your Prayers

As some of you know, I occasionally fill in the pulpit for my church when the pastor’s away.  For the last four or five years I’ve also filled the pulpit in a small church in a nearby town when their pastor1 takes vacation.  I did this back around Memorial Day, and I was asked to do it again this weekend.

I was looking through some of the sermon material that I used only a few months ago (and blogged), and I was figuring that if I ran out of time I would recycle2.


  1. They’re now on their third pastor since I’ve started doing this, so I’ve outlasted them! []
  2. Don’t look at me like that.  This is something that many fill-in preachers do! []

I’ve Found A Great Laptop

Dell Mini 9

Ok, so I’m checking around in my e-mail and blogs this morning when I spot this: The Dell Mini 9 Laptop.

At the cheapest setting this laptop is only $349—and that’s with a solid state hard drive, a genuine Intel processor and Ubuntu OS.

You don’t know how terrific of a buy this is for a person that just needs to surf the web.

The Internet is a highly visual place.  That being the case, it’s a good thing for every blog to get a virtual new can of paint at least once a year.

This can mean changing up or decluttering the sidebar, it could mean doing more features or series, or it could mean either finding a good new free template or buying a template from a good designer.

Whoa—Time to Cut Back on the Plugins!

Laptop 3

The other day I was noticing that my blog was running ridiculously slow when I was in the admin panel.  This was with having Google Gears turned on.

There are three things that go toward the speed of your blog—or any computer for that matter.  The number of processors, the amount of memory, and the amount of time across the network.

Since I only deal with broadband Internet, I didn’t think it was that.  Memory seemed ok—and the main site was functional.  That, and other sites I’m running seemed to be downright perky.  So, what was the deal?
