My 2010 Rearview

Books read this year: 30, mostly fiction Favorite non-fiction book: The Omnivore’s Dilemma The politics of the book aside, the information on our food-chain was stunning! Can’t recommend it highly enough for those that enjoy food and cooking as well as anyone concerned about the things we put in our bodies for fuel. Favorite fiction book: Silence of the […]

Walked Away

Some time ago I walked away – walked away from a close relationship with God into one that’s been quite distant and hands off. No more organized religion, i.e. “church”, no more bible study, no more prayer, and on and on. All those things were a part of my relationship until I walked away. I […]

Mayhap The Gospel Basics

Mayhap it’s the simplicity of the Gospel basics that are appealing to me at the moment. Reading this on today’s RSS tour reminded me how utterly simple the message is to understand and how simple it is to receive. Toward the point of the post, I need to be reminded of it lest I forget […]

I’ve taken the Sentinel ever since […]

They were originally taken from the Lunar Orbiter crafts which were launched back in the 60’s to map potential landing sites for the Apollo missions. To make a long story short, the original […]

The Shaded North Side

Spring comes slowly to New England, my house in particular in Keene, NH. The front of my house faces due north and as a result it gets a minimal amount of sun during late winter and early spring. Consequently, we’re one of the last houses on the block to loose the snow from our front […]

Admittedly Stupid

Are we so afraid of appearing “stupid” that we let it effect our ability to learn and grow? Although the position presented here is pointing at scientific research, for my money it applies generally to any type of research, investigation or line of inquiry. From the article: The crucial lesson was that the scope of […]

Real Constraints

On a post entitled “Why Apple Doesn’t Do Concept Products“, the author “Kontra” writes this passage: It turns out that when capable designers are given real constraints for real products they can end up creating great results. While the post is about much more, I found that one line worth the read. We live in […]
