The long happy life of a coyote survivor

Some of my favorite Ebby memories were from recent months- like when we would come upstairs and find him and Cleo mere inches from each other on our bed. That was a miracle! Or the time when I was sick and lying on the couch last month and he curled up next to my legs. 🙂 He was a good kitty.

City Dog, Country Frog

Aw, your review of it is very sweet, dear. I love that you are tender hearted and that this book touched you so.

Wow, dear, you really are amazing. Thanks for making Iris’s kitchen the best in town. 🙂

Ha… I love the footnote at the end that “outed” me as a pescatarian. 🙂

Vicarious entertainment

Aw, that first video is just precious. And for anyone wondering or silently judging us, we don’t let Iris watch more than 10-15 minutes per day. There’s just way too much for her to be doing other than passively watching TV. 😉

Metric?

Ha! That’s a great misunderstanding. I’ll bet the mechanic was thinking, ‘You BELIEVE it’s a Matrix? Huh?’

blogging competition

It’s not a competition, dear, you know it. And besides, I’m just making up for lost time since I haven’t been blogging this past year!

Documentaries have ruined me

You’ve definitely gotten me hooked on documentaries, sweetie! I look at the list above and realize that I’ve seen or currently listen to at least half of those movies or programs.

I will mention that yesterday’s sermon was quite good, and you missed it by thinking about math the whole time! 😛 Love you!

What is manhood?

I think a lot of evangelicals get confused about the whole “spiritual role” thing because of what they have been told by the church.  I am convinced that it is the responsibility of both the husband and wife to raise their children according to Christ’s teachings.  This verse contradicts the modern evangelical view that the husband is the responsible party for his family’s spiritual life: “For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5).  There are many verses in the NT that give a charge to men to “step up to the plate” in spiritual matters and how to treat their wives/children, but scripture repeatedly emphasizes that all Christians are priests (1 Peter 2:5,9), answering only to our High Priest, Christ.

Straight talkin’

I will admit that I had never heard of a gerund until this week, when someone mentioned it during a meeting Wednesday and my husband used the word on his blog Thursday. I don’t know most grammatical rules unless they are at a 4th grade level. How did I miss this?

the Proairetic Code

I would like to just publicly state that I can’t really get into Radio Lab. I thought the episode I listened to was way too long and randomly organized! This American Life, however, is just the right length for me (short attention span) and focuses on a narrow theme. Love it!

You're so dang funny!  All of the above story is true, folks.  I witnessed it.  Maybe Rob needs another home project to concentrate on so he won't obsess about his blog theme.

Oh man, I just love commenting on your blog when you’re sitting right next to me on the couch. Hey, when are we going to carve our pumpkins? I guess not tomorrow, since it’s going to snow, huh?

More Craigslist scam baiting

My husband and I are trying to sell his car on craiglist and we just got the same kind of email. The guy is supposedly a doctor, he said he is from houston town in texas state. Why not just say houston, texas. He also said that he is away in Canada for two months to check on his business there and he wants us to remove our ad from craigslist and he will pay us via electronic cashiers check as soon as we go and purchase the proper printing paper. He then said his shipping company would come to our house, we live in Pennsylvania, and transport the car to Texas?? I had to laugh at his grammar and spelling, being a doctor I would have thought it would have been correct, but it was not. I am definately not amused by this at all, and I am glad I found your story confirming my thoughts that this whole electronic cashiers check business is a scam. I wonder if it was the same person that sent your message because they sounded very similar. If so, guess he didn’t learn.

Well, I’m glad I found this site. I’ve had several scammers email me about my item on Craigslist. Here is one that I think is a scammer: maria.adeeko@yahoo.com. The Paypal thing make her look legitimate but I’m almost positive she’s a scammer. when I look up the address listed below, I got Aerators, Inc.,and Instrument Services, Inc. I have a business account and that’s the information I generally give out – not my personal. Or I’ll use my employers address, but never mine.

Maria sent the payment via paypal with a shipment address to Nigeria after I made it clear that I only ship USA and prefer dealing locally.
Your order was cancelled as I do not ship internationally.
