An Almost 8-year-old’s Faith Healing Experience

“I was sick yesterday, but I got cured by God.”

Just Assorted Stuff: End of Semester, Yoda-speak, and FiboNachos

Wednesday, December 14th, 2005

I have finished grading finals and submitting final grades (what interesting symmetry that is), and so I am done with this dreadful semester. But I’m just not ready to talk about it yet.
Still, for your enjoyment, a couple of tidbits. Both fairly geeky.
First, something sent to me by one of my students a […]

Tis the Season for Urban Legends

Tuesday, December 13th, 2005

I recently started receiving emails from an outfit called Christian Cyber Ministries. At work. I’m not exactly sure how that started, but it’s beside the point.
Yesterday’s email from “Pastor Bill” related the “Story Behind The Twelve Days of Christmas. Perhaps you’ve seen some version of this. As the story […]

Lack of posts

Sunday, December 11th, 2005

Sorry for the light blogging. I’m getting finals ready, final projects graded, going to holiday functions of one kind or another, and when I’m not doing that, I’m being uninspired.
I’ll try to get up a couple of end of semester posts in the next day or two (preview: things didn’t go as well as […]

(Thanks to John […]

Bobby and Joe

Sunday, December 4th, 2005

I guess I gave up on my Noles too soon. In spite of losing four games this seaon, they beat Virginia Tech in the ACC Championship. This earned them a berth in the Orange Bowl. Wow! Bowden and Paterno — two college football giants (at least in my biased opinion).
I realize […]

No asbestos!

Sunday, December 4th, 2005

Saw the following on a package of crayons my daughter was using at church today:
Non-toxic. Asbestos-free.
Am I to infer that there are crayons that contain asbestos? Or is this an attempt at some clever marketing strategy.
It got me thinking: what other useless information could you provide on a box of crayons? I’m […]

Email from a friend

Thursday, December 1st, 2005

Sorry for the lack of blogging this week. No excuses, just haven’t been inspired (or motivated, maybe). Just to brighten your day, I’ll share an email I received from my little one today (she had come to me this morning asking how to spell Christmas — now I know why).
