The result of years of force-feeding

You know the Bible 100%!   Wow! You are awe­some! You are a true Bib­li­cal schol­ar, not just a hear­er but a per­son­al read­er! The books, the char­ac­ters, the events, the vers­es — you know it all! You are fan­tas­tic!  Ulti­mate Bible QuizCre­ate MySpace Quizzes In any case, it’s a cul­tur­al lit­er­a­cy issue. I did­n’t […]

Katie’s Fall Report Card

We got Katie’s report card in, and she did in fact get all As! She’s well into the next semes­ter now. Because every­body else was reg­is­tered for this year last spring, the advanced physics course was full and she’s in the “nor­mal” physics course. She is crazy bored. I mean, this is seri­ous­ly the first time […]

7,000 deaths a year due to bad handwriting? Save yours!

Well, Time Mag­a­zine reports that the Nation­al Acad­e­mies of Sci­ence’s Insti­tute of Med­i­cine says that’s the fig­ure, any­way. Doc­tors’ slop­py hand­writ­ing kills more than 7,000 peo­ple annu­al­ly. It’s a shock­ing sta­tis­tic, and, accord­ing to a July 2006 report from the Nation­al Acad­e­mies of Sci­ence’s Insti­tute of Med­i­cine (IOM), pre­ventable med­ica­tion mis­takes also injure more than […]

WordPress to Livejournal feed question

Why is it that occa­sion­al­ly my Word­Press blogs just go and repost a mess of arti­cles to their feed—at least, on Live­Jour­nal? Even when I have recent­ly post­ed new arti­cles? I just noticed that the feed from this blog to LJ just burped the last 5 or so arti­cles back to LJ, despite the fact […]

Fun update

We were tick­led to be part of the (how manyth?) annu­al Scar­let­talia last night! For those who have nev­er been blessed by par­tic­i­pa­tion, it hon­ors the arrival of Scar­lett Ross upon our plan­et.  This year’s theme was Poly­ne­sian Poi, so we got to see fire-spin­n­ers up close and in per­son for the first time, and […]

Katie, Me and Schools

Well, we’re wait­ing for Katie’s final grades for the fall semes­ter while enjoy­ing win­ter break for both of us. We had Sam home for the first half of our breaks with us, but unfor­tu­nate­ly work­ing for a school isn’t quite as lux­u­ri­ous as being a stu­dent. Katie has had most­ly As in her progress reports […]

Poetry: Thus Spake the Mockingbird

Thus Spake the Mock­ing­bird –Bar­bara Ham­by From Babel The mock­ing­bird says, Hal­lelu­jah, core­op­sis, I make the day      bright, I wake the night-bloom­ing jas­mine. I am the duodec­i­mo of des­per­ate love, the hocus-pocus pas­sion      flower of deliri­ous ret­ri­bu­tion. You nev­er saw such a bird, such a triage of blood and feath­ers, tongues and bone. O the world      is a sad address, […]
