the daily 26.2 , 4-23-20

What is the opposite of yesterday’s post about the sedate, gentlemanly pursuit of chess? Why, it’s the Olympic marathon!

Why is running such an important part of Olympic marathoning? That’s how you…… Continue reading the daily 26.2 , 4-23-20

In these uncertain times there is one thing certain – Campbells Cream of Celery Soup will never sell out.

the daily grump 11-6-19

The Purging Lutheran is grumpy. My Sweet Rib went through her Christian-themed books to give away (in this case to a Bible book store) and this is one of them. It contains many examples of the Gospel which can be found in modern movies. Well, OK, this book is about 15 years old so you’d…… Continue reading the daily grump 11-6-19

the joe.dirt.mud poke 9-17-19

The first cup of caffè americano in Rome rivals Wally’s.   Lamentations 3:22-24 God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out,     his merciful love couldn’t have dried up. They’re created new every morning.     How great your faithfulness! I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over).     He’s all I’ve got left.

I could righty-tighty and lefty-loosie small screws on any number of small items. What kind of small items could be worked on with the…… Continue reading the daily purge 8-13-19
