John R. Lott Jr. and Bradley Smith Say Prop. 8 Supporters Face a Backlash – WSJ.com. There are 2 points of this opinion: 1) is to say that full public disclosure of financial gifts to political campaigns is like taking away a person’s right to vote secretly; and 2) the future is to intimidate people who donate to controversial campaigns. There are a few very fallacious points made. First, the issue that a person’s political[Read More…]

Weighing in on Rick Warren

To add to all the discourse or… I have been vascillating for a week now about writing this post, and if the truth be told I’m still not sure I want to put my comments out there. But here goes. I cal always choose to not publish it once written. Controversy I doubt the controversy is news to anyone at this point, but in brief: an envangelical pastor of a California megachurch was invited to give the[Read More…]

Top 15 fortune cookie fortunes of 2008

These were collected over the year.  Most, I can remember when I received it, and all had special importance at that time.  For some the meaning was always obvious, others it became clearer and a few it is still coming to clarity. 🙂   No profit grows where there is no pleasure to be had. There is no point to being grown up if you can’t be childish sometimes. It doesn’t matter.  Who is without[Read More…]

iPhone Application Review: iNap Arrival Alert

iPhone Application Review: iNap Arrival Alert

On the iTunes app store, there are reviews of the applications.  I often read these, and sometimes pick up a useful point or two, but too often, the reviews don’t tell me much except that someone liked an app or didn’t.  And for me, that isn’t all that useful.  Sure if 100 out of 120 people said good things, that suggests the app may be a good download, but what is past that?  What is[Read More…]

Aunt Florence and Thanksgiving

As Brad and I fell asleep last night, we talked about expectations and wishes for Thanksgiving Day.  I actually already had this blog post in my head, but the discussion reminded me that perhaps all of us carry into holidays, expectations and ideas about what a perfect holiday might look like and our perfect day is most likely heavily colored by our past. As a kid, I remember Aunt Florence when I think about any[Read More…]

Insight from Meditation

So, I sit semi-regularly, with a small group of folks at work for a noon-time meditation.  Most of the folks involved are buddhist, but not all.  The meditation is simple and comfortable for anyone.  No matter what your belief system (or lack there of) this can be a welcome place.  Call it silent prayer, call it what you will, just come and spend about 30 minutes in silence. I say I attend semi-regularly- partly because[Read More…]

Why I follow people on Twitter

So, I’ve been twittering for a while, not sure exactly how long, but about 9 months to a year I guess.  Over that time, I have spent a lot of time on twitter for periods and spent almost no time there during others. And finally, I am starting to feel like I am more connected to some folks on there.  Recently I started using twollow to auto follow people.  And I have begun to think[Read More…]
