Odds and Ends off my Desk

Saying for the Day- A clean desk is a sign of great wisdom or that the owner had nothing else to do.

It’s Friday and time to clean off my desk.

Here are a few things I found that I want to share with you.

If you’re a Christian with a computer you will find a psalm for the computer age on Friday's Child's Blog

If you’re a dog owner or if you just like dogs there is a great entry on Catch's Blog.

Do you know what a Dega or A Degu is. There is a picture on Bazza’s blog.

For the many who have asked for information on Finglish ( well for the one of you) here is an Introduction to Finglish.

For those who watch the “ Young and Restless: here is a truly funny website, called “ The Genoa City News”

One last item . If you go to a blog several days in a row and it doesn’t seem to change your computer might be giving you a stored version. To be sure hit the refresh button. This happened to me last week. Every day I went to Catch’s blog and it still had Sunday’s post. Then on Thursday I hit the refresh and she not only had a new entry but a new layout.

Now my desk is clean and ready for the weekend.

@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my garage where the trains still run, boys talk to rocks, and basketball is king.-Well The New Potatoes won last night. They were behind by one point with ten seconds to go. Bill Koivinen took a desperation shot and it looked like it was going to miss the basket altogether then suddenly the ball turned in mid flight and went straight to the basket. Nobody had ever seen a shot like it. The all state sports net work which was recording the game for later replay has replayed and replayed the shot. It has been on all the local channels. The shot seems to be a clear miss until suddenly as if pushed by an invisible hand it turns and goes to the basket.
A number of “experts” said the shot was impossible. It couldn’t happen . But there it is on tape. Nobody touches it. Nothing hits it but it turns and scores. The best guess is that just as he shot somebody opened a door and a huge currant of air came rushing in and pushed the ball. How fortunate for the New Potatoes that the door got opened at just the right time. The only other explanation is that it was some kind of magic. That makes no sense at all. Bill says he just put the right spin on the ball. But the video doesn’t show the ball spinning. This one will be talked about over at the Fly Inn for a long time.
Pastor Moe didn’t go to the game which he called stuff and nonsense. Pastor Marvel used to go and scream his lungs out for the team. He may be right that basketball has become a God to a lot of people but he is winning no friends in saying so. It’s a good job he’s a pastor because he would never have made it as a diplomat. He is just too honest.
Nancy sold a lot of coffee this morning. People wanted to talk about that shot. Nancy says she has no explanation. Maybe her poltergeist went to the game. If it can make coffee shoot up into the air it can move basketballs. Eino still believes in some kind of odd air movement to explain both happenings. He does not believe in poltergeists .He does believe in hot air.
Is there really a poltergeist? Was it hot air? Was it magic? What in the world is going on? Can Pastor Moe survive? And of course is Tommy UK really the undertaker’s kid?

Today's Link-Seventh Soujourn- Having trouble sleeping. Check out this blog. Leave a DR. John. Please.
A nice day. I spent mpost of it reading " The Dragon Reborn". It is a slower read than 'Eldest" but it is a good read anyway. I blogged. I visited most of the links. My sister called and her mother -in-law is out of the hospital and home. I will get a breathing treatment.

Back to your new train layout: There are several truck-stops around the US that have a model train running around the whole dining room, up by the ceiling. One is in lower Michigan, one in Illinois, one in Tennessee, one out East ... The trains disappear into tunnels, go over trestles, etc.

Was Tommy UK at the game? Did he bring his friend the rock with him? Or is someone in the back woods making Flubber?

My wife gave me a little plaque for my desk that reads: "A cluttered desk is the mark of a genius." Works for me. =)
We're in an pre-spring thaw down here. Only the dirty piles of icy snow remain along the roads and in the parking lots. How is it up there?
