The chair. A tool that is often not thought of as a tool, but it is. I spend most of my life in one and I can attest to the value of a good one. I remember early on in my pastorate how I despised the one I had. It was from the 1970’s, bright orange, and had no ability to recline nor support the back. I spent ten to twelve hours in it six days a week so I knew its every worthless detail. However . . . .
I also have sat on the most basic of “chairs” and found great rest, relaxation and pleasure. A stump or a rock around a campfire brings lasting memories. So it was with both thoughts in mind that I stumbled on this site that focused on the unique street chairs of China. I hope it tickles your fancy as it did mine.
My day ended last night with a dog and a skunk. My day begins with the dog and the remnants of the skunk. It is a good day. I find it a bit suspicious though that my wife is still sleeping. I suspect she is hoping that if she stays up there long enough that maybe I will deal with the dog on my own. 27 years of marriage and she still doesn’t realize how stubborn I am. Therefore, to stall the inevitable I give you these links for sole goal of making your Monday passably pleasant.
I suspect that the new craze among the youth looking for a buzz shall soon be flying ants.
I have seen videos claiming that it is almost impossible to drink and keep down a gallon of milk. My daughter and I continue to not believe this and I am still very tempted to prove it wrong. Regardless, this guy didn’t seem to be too impressed.
While we all rush around worrying about who knows what how often do we fail to realize the struggles of the little appreciated frog? Hmmmm? How often? I bet very little.
So you are skiing and you cause an avalanche. What do you do? A) scream and try to go really fast to get away. B) Curl up and stop to allow it to pass over you. C) Do a back flip and then continue on your way? Here is the video of the whole thing if you like.
I love the groups of people who seem to have the ability to search out and find little things like this that turn up in our government.
And finally, a couple of embedded videos to end this little trip down procrastination lane.
Watch the poor guy who almost got out of the subway and then is forced back in by the crowd.
If you ever want to try to have razor clams for dinner you will need this information.
I came across this link the other day and wanted to mess around with it a bit before posting. This is simply a nice tool for someone who wants to delve into the Bible languages as part of their study. Not only does it parse and give the basic definitions, which are helpful on their own, it also has the ability to compare the English translation with the Greek or Hebrew.
Then I tried version two and was really excited. This is the kind of stuff that brings the Word of God into closed nations. Two Chinese versions already on it. And in the Greek version you may notice a camera in the text. Click on it at pictures are available that are connected to the passage. This all led me to his blog where I find that he has developed a bible program that is easy to smuggle into places the bible is forbidden and operates in a very stealthy way. Listen to the video or at least read the article. Eye-opening and encouraging.
