Shameful

  Our older daughter is studying Manifest Destiny this week in history.  It’s a huge black mark on American history, and shameful.  She’s preparing her first draft of her paper on the topic as I type this. We just finished watching “We Shall Remain,” a part of Ken Burns’ series on American history.  I focused…

Ten Facts

Betty Beguiles wrote ten neat things about her and her husband, and I thought I’d play along. I was dating someone else when we met, which he did not know.  Nor do I think he cared.  He told me later he knew he’d marry me the moment he saw me.  We were already married when…

Quick Note for FB & Twitter

Just a quick reminder: I *have* given up both for Lent, but this blog auto-posts to Facebook and Twitter.  So if you’re seeing links, just know that the blog is just posting to both on its own, and I am not logging into either, nor am I getting notices or text messages from either source.

RIP

Just read that Elizabeth Taylor – the one I’m not related to – passed away. May she rest in peace, and may she have embraced the One Who has truly loved her all her earthbound life so she may be with Him in her eternal life.
