[Once again, I found myself flipping through old posts and found this classic I thought I’d share.]

Have you ever been in a social situation where someone is speaking to you, and for the life of you, you simply cannot understand what they are saying? Maybe it was a really strong accent, maybe they just had oral surgery and have cotton swabs in their mouth, perhaps they were stung on the tongue by a bee, or maybe they were actually speaking a language. Either way, it all comes out the same: What the hell was that? More

What Happens When There Are No More Churches?

Abandoned Church

I remember a time during my childhood when my parents would take us to church on Sundays. It was a regular thing, and we went every Sunday (and special days, of course) without fail, unless we were really sick with a fever.

She was still relatively young when she found us – maybe 2 years old – and we had her until she died about 14 years later. But she was the most gentle and loving dog you’d ever meet, part Labrador and part Collie, and you’d only have to fear being licked to death from her. More

Facebook. People either love it, or they loathe it; they praise it, or they curse it. There doesn’t seem to be any middle ground on it. Additionally, you have two separate types of Facebook users – those that post everything, and those that post very little. More
