That title means that there are a number of things I thought about writing, but none of them really fired up the brain synapses. So, call it a plethora or a hodge-podge or whatever, here it is.
I was looking at the statistics for the blog today and there was a spike in page views back on January 14. So, I just had to go check out what I wrote on that day. It was a posting with more pictures of the Sportsman’s Campground RV Park. Well, that told me that folks are interested in more scenic shots, especially of beautiful Colorado and less of religion and politics.
Well, sorry to disappoint any of you, but today just isn’t your day.
There was a news story out of Detroit today reporting that the federal government has upped the amount it is losing on the GM/Chrysler bailout. Sadly, the American citizens are getting it again, and I’m again glad that we have Fords. (There will be more on that one later.)
The “Occupy” movement is getting that as well. They were moved out of various parks in Oakland and D.C. Maybe those lazy bums will go look for a job now. (I doubt it.)
There was also a story today, perhaps not true, that the First Lady recently spent $50,000 on “unmentionables” at a highly trendy lingerie store. The White House denies such a story, but nothing would surprise me from a lady that wants to travel to their vacation destinations in her own plane instead of with her husband. (Hey, do you suppose the bloom is off the rose there?)
At church on Sunday, I went to inform the wife of one of our Elders that I had borrowed a video series of his that he had given me permission to watch. It is “The Last Days According to Jesus” with R.C. Sproul lecturing in it. It is about the supposed end times as spoken of by Jesus. So far, I’ve only watched three 30-minute episodes, so I don’t really have anything about it to report.
When I went to tell the Elder’s wife of my getting the series, she asked me if I didn’t have the video of The Star of Bethlehem. When I said yes, she informed to that it was ours to keep and that they had ordered a new copy for themselves. I was dumbfounded at their generosity. But now I will have the opportunity to share that fascinating video with others. Unlike “The Truth Project,” the video of “The Star of Bethlehem” is only about an hour long, but still riveting.
Jo went to the doctor today after making an appointment a while back to have the doctor check her out about her fainting spells. I wrote of the recent incident back a few days ago about both of us being sick. The doctor seems to think, based on her description of the events over her life, that she is just a fainter. However, because of our “advancing” age, he is electing to have her undergo an MRI on her brain, as well as an EEK. (Or, is that an EEG?)
It might be EEK, depending on the cost involved.
OK. Now that my brain has just about officially shut down for the evening, I guess I might force myself to share one photo with all of you. After all, you haven’t had an image of God’s beauty lately.
