Today I discovered the tools diskpart and diskmgt.msc It’s odd to remember that Windows is actually a full-fledged os and not just some bloatware required to run Word.

12th Sunday after Pentecost

12th Sunday after Pentecost 7 August  2016 Text: Luke 12:32-40 “Do not be afraid little flock.” It is an interesting beginning. The start of this chapter showed Jesus speaking to thousands but in the midst of this larger lesson he seems to have shifted his focus toward his core group, his little flock. It makes me think he is speaking… (more…)

11th Sunday of Pentecost

July 31, 2016 — 11th Sunday of Pentecost Text: Luke 12:13-21 I want to be honest, today’s gospel lesson is not one of the easy ones. This is not a happy parable with an explanation written out a few verses later. This is not an uplifting passage. The next few weeks in the lectionary are not going to be showing… (more…)

Changing the NHL Playoffs

A few weeks back my @dasbobworld (my erstwhile brother-in-law) and I had one of those sitting around discussions where we fixed the world. The world in question was the NHL. Neither of us like the fact that the East gets one less team into the second season and the potential of Quebec City getting a franchise along with Las Vegas… (more…)

Why is Jesus being an asshat?

Warning: Contains Religion Note: This is sermon 3 of 3. The other two were written on paper and have yet to be digitally transcribed (in either sense of that word). I’m using the revised common lectionary for the last while as an ongoing narrative (which it is as we’re essentially going through Mark with some add-ins from John). I’m including… (more…)

Sunday May 3, 2015 — Easter V

WARNING: CONTAINS RELIGION “Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me.” John 15:4b I want to start off today by wishing everyone a very Happy Easter. The candy and chocolate bunnies have been eaten and we have begun thinking about how we are going to… (more…)

Checking something out

I’m playing with Amazon affiliate links right now, more so I can stop wondering about whether I should post an image of the books I review. [amazon asin=0451414837&template=add to cart]

April 3, 2015

A year ago … … I had never cut down a tree. … I had yet to light a fire using the embers of the previous day’s blaze. … I had never owed a pool. … I had never hung my clothes on my clothesline. … my youngest uncle was still alive. … I lived in Freya’s house. … I was… (more…)

Review of the New Testament

Back in January I decided that my resolution would be to read the entirety of the Bible. Wait? Did you hear that correctly? Yes. The entirety. I wasn’t convinced I had read all of the minor prophets let alone all of Isaiah and there was a nagging suspicion that I never really did finish Hebrews. So I grabbed a Bible… (more…)

Level Complete

One of those odd professional moments happened yesterday when I worked on a job from start to finish. I have been there for the opening and the closing but never for both on the same job. This particular job took five months, a bit longer than the eight to ten weeks I was originally told. The last few weeks were rough.… (more…)
