So THAT’S Who Is To Blame!

( Fun! )

So today is March 31. It’s supposed to be springtime, and it’s supposed to be nice outside. But instead we wake up to a couple of inches of fresh snow on the ground, and more to come throughout the day. Expecting about 6 inches total. And I think I figured out who is to blame: […]

Common Errors in English

( Links )

Here’s a great site — Common Errors in English — with an accompanying book by the same title. It is great; covers all of the biggies that drive me up a wall, like the oh-so common I/me gaffe, there/they’re/their, it/it’s, and a lot/alot more! But the thing that really made me sit up and pay […]

On the third day He rose again, in fulfillment of the Scriptures…

He is risen! He is risen indeed!

He descended into Hell.

Following the statement about Christ’s crucifixion, death and burial, the Apostle’s Creed says that he then descended into Hell. This is all that is said about the day between Black Friday and Resurrection Sunday. But some churches and some variations of the Apostle’s Creed don’t include that line at all, leaving us to wonder what […]

He was crucified, died, and was buried…

Today is Good Friday. Not sure why it’s called “Good”, as it’s marks the day that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was brutally tortured and killed. The day that he suffered in our stead. The Creator of the Universe had humbled himself and took on flesh, lived a sinless life among sinful people, and […]

2009 Dodge Purple People Eater

( Cars! )

Dodge has officially revealed the 2009 Challenger, and dang is it hot. The only thing it’s missing is that lovely Mopar purple paint job that reminds me so much of the Mopar musclecars from the ’60’s. To remedy that, we now have Photoshop and the Replace Color… function. Now idn’t dat purty? I likes it.

A Strange Way To Sell Water Heaters

I was listening to Rush Limbaugh while running some errands this afternoon, and had to laugh out loud at how he closed the conversation with one of his callers… With what sounded like an off-the-cuff plug for one of his advertisers. He was talking with a guy named Sean, and just before letting him go, […]

The Infamous WKRP Turkey Drop

( Fun! )

MentalFloss had a post yesterday about Marvelously Misguided Promotions, and I couldn’t help but think of the Infamous WKRP Turkey Drop. I laughed at it back in the ’80’s, and I split a gut with it again yesterday. “The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement!” Classic. Just classic!

The Coolest Bike. Ever.

As the number 8 kid in a family of 9, I rarely got anything new. Most of it was hand-me-downs from one of the older siblings. There were exceptions though; Mom worked at the J.C. Penney store downtown when we were kids and got in on some great deals, and we reaped the windfall from […]

Insane Video Editing

( Fun! )

Here are two YouTube videos that involved a bit of video editing. I first saw the John Holland video through a post on Neatorama, and one of the commenters pointed out the Lasse Gjertsen video. I think Gjertsen’s is probably the better of the two because he plays neither the drums nor the piano. I’m […]
