the daily purge 1-24-20

My Sweet Rib* puttered through the cabinettes below our bathroom sinks the other day. Among the many items** she found unworthy of keeping were several pill boxes. Getting older is a skill – a delicate ballet of eating poorly, drinking excessively and, eventually, popping pills to reverse the effects of the first two. The top…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-24-20

the daily lazy 12-17-19

If The Purging Lutheran has an issue with my therapy, which is what these daily posts are a part of, it’s working up the gumption to make an effort. I find that somedays are better left to the ‘professionals’, them what have already writ something I can copy, cut and paste to my advantage. This…… Continue reading the daily lazy 12-17-19

the daily reflection 11-29-19

How sin sees itself. 1 Corinthians 13:12 We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as…… Continue reading the daily reflection 11-29-19

the daily purge 11-19-19

Here is a popular book people have been buying since 1992. The Purging Lutheran picked this up sometime in ‘two-thousand-and-clackity-clack’. My Sweet Rib and I read it (skimmed through it) to find the astonishing answers of who we really were, or are, or what we want to be. These are the options laid out by…… Continue reading the daily purge 11-19-19

the daily purge 11-13-19

Spoiler warning: The Purging Lutheran spoils everything. I haven’t read this book, which was released in 19-aught-86, but My Sweet Rib read it recently. It’s give-or-take a billion pages filled with details which could never make it into the film (unless you enjoy billion-minute films). It’s common knowledge that films of books tend to stray…… Continue reading the daily purge 11-13-19

the daily pork 11-1-19

The author of Know Your Groceries is named Frederick Blaine Humphrey. He was born in New York ~1876 and died in California, 1952. ‘Humphrey’ is not a common surname. Please do not mistake him for Minnesotan politician, Hubert Horatio Humphrey. It’s an easy-to-make error. Another easy doink! is to mistake Frederick Blaine Humphrey for professional typesetter, Hubert Blaine…… Continue reading the daily pork 11-1-19

the daily boat 10-18-19

The Purging Lutheran came across this title years ago while soifing the interwobblenet. It’s a real live book how to avoid huge ships while operating a smaller ship. Not being a boat owner I’m not at liberty to comment on its contents. But! There are a slew of reviews at Amazon from readers who appear…… Continue reading the daily boat 10-18-19
