I sure hate PMSing.
Sorry, Carolyn, for being so bloody emotional on tonight's walk.

(See? I used the word bloody in a post. No way a conservative church would want me on their blogging team.)


Anyway, thanks for your words of encouragement. Your ability to zero in on the important issues is a real gift.

In case the rest of you are wondering, she suggested I keep on singing, regardless of Drew's opinion. Mostly I agree with her, because well, I'm worshipping. God. And, it's really nobody's business but His what I sound like. But the other part of me, the part that has ears and pride, is mindful of the fact that I am not musically talented. And just like I should hand out ear plugs to those who have to share a tent with me, I should probably hand out ear protection to those who share a pew with me as well.


It was a big day around here today. In the States, the 'mericans were celebrating their President's or something. And in 5 Canadian provinces it was Family Day. A whole buncha folks got the day off to spend time with their families.

At the O house, we are celebrating the end of the Christmas season as the once live, now not so much, Christmas tree was removed from the living room and dumped right outside the front door. Am I the winner? Anybody else still have their tree up 2 MONTHS after the event has passed? (Every day I ask, "Hey - can you take the tree down? And haul it away?" Everyday he says "sure".) Did I mention I am PMSing today? It was either that tree or the kids. Something was going to be tossed out the front door.


Question for you: What is the most consumed beverage in the world after water?
Give up?
Clint guessed Coke.
I guessed coffee.

Did you know that?
Know why?

Because of its pleasant taste and relaxation effect.
It's because of the amino acid in it called L-theanine which stimulates the production of alpha brain waves, creating a state of deep relaxation and mental alertness similar to what is achieved through meditation. Plus it influences the levels of two other neurotransmitters, dopamine and serotonin, producing the key relaxation effect.

If you are under stress, can't sleep, have anxiety, google L-theanine. Go ahead. I just did. Pretty fascinating. Thanks T.


Well it's late. I just watched a pod of killer whales attack and kill a humpback grey whale calf and eat only it's lower jaw. Nature's a bitch.

(I really, really am not going to be allowed to blog for a church. I said another B word.)

Three things I'm thankful for:
1. Two walks in two days with two friends.
2. That derned tree is out of my house.
3. PMS rolls around just once a month.
