Once again, I’m planning to go to the Starlite Drive-In this Friday night. It’s a fun way to see a movie on the cheap and is a great experience. Each person is $4. This week: Monster House. Show times are 8:45 and 10:20, so I’m thinking that we’ll leave around 9:15 and catch the 10:20 […]

Been keeping busy helping people move and doing a project.  Friday through Sunday, I helped three people to move.  One of the moves was clearing out 606A, which was the original NLCF office.  It hasn’t turned over according to the landlords until now, so we had to take 15+ years of stuff out of it.  […]

It’s about devil employee stories.  Very long and time consuming, but lots of funny comments.

This year, my car decided to give me a little birthday present in the form of a flat tire.  It wasn’t fixable, so I ended up needing a new tire.  It’s always best to have matched pairs (front and back) of tires, so I needed at least two tires.  And my front tires were apparently […]

I just finished Angels and Demons, the prequel to The DaVinci Code. At 710 pages in paperback, it’s probably the longest novel I’ve ever read. But it’s also one of the books that I’ve made it through the fastest. Cory handed me the book at about 6:30pm yesterday, and I finished about 12:15am–less than 30 […]

Our A/C died again (same problem as last time).  The owner took apart the motor and sprayed it with bug killer, and now it seems to be working again.  Tomorrow, the HVAC guy will come and replace the contact that the bugs were in, since it’s probably damaged.

Our a/c in 503 went out early this afternoon. Fortunately, we were able to get it fixed today as well. It was 95 degrees when it came back on and 82 inside. The problem? Earwigs. Earwigs? Bugs? Apparently, the little buggers like to make their home in the compressor fan motor. Sometimes, they get into […]

In Alabama, it is illegal to wear a fake mustache that causes laughter in church. In California, it is illegal to shoot at any kind of game from a moving vehicle … unless the target is a whale. In Florida, if an elephant is left tied to a parking meter, the parking fee has to […]

Saw Cars at the Starlite Drive In tonight. Unfortunately, we missed the 9:00 showing (it filled up before we got in), but we came back for the 11 showing. Cars was a well done movie (both the story and technically). Seeing it in the 50s decor of the theater added to the movie experience. We […]

This has to be the shortest blog post I’ve ever seen. I believe it’s something we’re called to do if we’re followers of Christ and this is a good way to think about it. Something I can’t help but do… Comfort the afflicted. Afflict the comfortable. From Ben Arment’s History in the Making. Direct post […]
