Once again, I've enjoyed the spectacle of the latest presidential primaries. Seems it's been years since there was this much suspense. I know that much hangs in the balance, so sometimes I feel guilty for being such a pure junkie for the process itself, but that's the way it is...and I can't wait until Super Tuesday!
Nathan came home this weekend to visit with our friend Matt who graduated from Air Force Basic Training on Friday. We've enjoyed having some time with Nate and hearing about his first two weeks away at college. It's clear he's found the environment that suits him and he's pretty much glowing.
Favorite new product:
This might LOOK like just any other barely-useful kitchen gadget. But trust me, if you make homemade pizza or you buy frozen pizza, this could change your life. Okay, that's a lie. If it changes your life, you still need to GET a life. But really, it's one of the neatest of the non-essential kitchen appliances I've ever seen. And it makes even frozen pizza truly edible! Just go read the reviews on Amazon! And don't buy it at this price...wait until it goes on sale. I think I got it for half of what it's going for today.
Like Lyric, I didn't watch Miss America last night, but my girls did. I can tell I'm getting old when the changes in the show leave me totally empty. From what I hear from CJ, I didn't miss much.
If you are much younger than me you might not get the kick out of this that I did. The possibilities for entertainment on the topic of Ted Kennedy are practically endless...if this piece of satire doesn't ring a bell with you, you might need to Google "Chappaquiddick".
I've spent a portion of the past few days teaching myself the ins and outs of DNS (Domain Name Systems), CNAMEs, A records, MX....and my brain hurts. But I'm also listening to an audio book that discusses the importance of continuing to stretch the brain in new directions and not just stretching it further in the same directions. So I'm doing my part to stave off dementia, although I'm not sure that dementia would be as uncomfortable as trying to learn this stuff without a teacher!
And from this morning's worship service...
Assist me to proclaim
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name
Lyrics by Charles Wesley
Have a wonderful, brain-stretching week :-)
