ConAir was a 1997 film starring Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and John Malkovich. It included a lot of cussing, name calling, pushing, shoving and tattling, the sorts of behaviors which should have been dealt with in kindergarten. It also included extreme violence, gun play and suggestive adult themes, those sorts of behaviors which occur when…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-19-18

“And since (the DNA) is so old, it’s full of holes! That’s where our geneticists take over!”—Mr DNA This is one of two chairs The Purging Lutheran kept in the basement where The Lad’s cats, Grandé and Callie, would sleep to avoid KadenSuperPup’s constant hectoring. Every month or two I would vacuum these chairs because…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-18-18

Just in case you donut remember where English-language Latvian worship is held in Indianapolis. The hymns we sang were “God of Tempest, God of Whirlwind”, ”I Love to Tell the Story”, “What Feast of Love”, and “Jesus Loves Me”. Thank you, Karl! My son, Aleksandrs, read the church prayers. Susan read scripture, 2nd Corinthians 5:6-17.…… Continue reading the view from the pew 6-17-18

The Purging Lutheran, with the support of Lady Elizabeth, presents a ‘Back Smoother’ otherwise known as a loofah. What makes this loofah special is it comes with handles. A cursory search on loofahs revealed the following: ===> Facial Exfoliation Wet your loofah in hot water and squeeze it to soften it before use. … Rub…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-15-18

Today is a sweaty, muggy June day in Central Indiana (population:4 – The Purging Lutheran, My Sweet Rib, KadenSuperPup, and Grandé lè Mew). Who really wants to use a heat wrap on a day like today? Very few people, that’s who or whom. How do these heat wraps work, you ask yourself? A. Is it sorcery?…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-14-18

This is called a recorder. The Purging Lutheran read about the history of the recorder. Here are some highlights: Why don’t we call it ‘flute’ instead of ‘recorder’? Flutes used to be called ‘recorders’ but the French called the recorder ‘flute’. For a while the recorder used to be called both ‘recorder’ and ‘flute’ but…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-13-18

In South Korea there is a belief called ‘fan death’. It states if a person falls asleep in a closed room with an operating electric fan he is likely to die. Why is this? No one really knows. Some say it was the result of a government scare tactic meant to reduce electrical use by…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-12-18

The Purging Lutheran is either a little embarrassed or a little flummoxed. I am a little embarrassed because over the course of years purging petroleum-based products I have noted that this or that item will sit atop a garbage heap slowly dis-integrating over several millenia. Only then will Creation be free of human meddling. When I…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-11-18

The Purging Lutheran has dipped into the contents of a coffee table in the living room where The Lad had his computer set-up set up. Does Mass Effect 2 include the answers left over from Mass Effect 1? Does either of them have any connection to the Catholic Church? We live in a time where…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-8-18

What started out as a poorly designed checkers board was repurposed into a shelf. If this couldn’t hold checkers then it could be used to rest a compact disc player on it. The Purging Lutheran could very well have laid a book and magazine across it. A birthday cake? Absolutely but good luck with that!…… Continue reading the daily purge 6-7-18
