2009 part iv

I think this is the last thing. And for cheating sake, it can't be started in 2009 let alone completed. It fits squarely in the dumb slot. I would like to, before my oldest daughter is 18, live in a foreign country for 2 years or more. (She is 8.) I don't really know where, or why for that matter. But it is out there. And if I needed to have something that is dangerously unattainable, monstrously big, it might as well be that.

In all the years of "blogging" I don't have a single post dealing with toast, toasters, or anything remotely connected with the act of browing bread. Until today.

The third item in my list for 2009

I want to be able to grow something I can eat. My life consists of consuming. I have not made anything that someone else could possible want. I don't think this is okay. I also firmly believe that my lawn shall one day be gone, replaced with items that can be eaten by man or beast. So for 2009 I will begin my journey as a hobbyist farmer. Or I will just grow potatoes in a pot.

I wish the link below fit as a paste

2009 part dos

Did you know that if you break Matthew, Mark, Luke and John into 3 chapters a day you can read all four books in a month? It's true. Well I have been reading psalms, and proverbs to different levels of success for a couple of years now in the same way. You can break the psalms into 5 a day and proverbs one chapter a day. It brings a great peace to know that I don't have to "think of what to read", but I just look at the next chapter and proceed. So in this 2009 A.D. I am going to read the four gospels 12 times.

2009 part one

As is my tradition I would like to put forward some things that I would like to try to do during 2009. So to begin my list of good intentions I would like to say that in the new year I will not purchase New Books. Or another way to look at it is this way: I will try to borrow the book first. Our local library has a great selection and the intra-library loan system does come in handy when I can't get the book If that doesn't work, or I just can't live without the book in my personal possession, then used book stores (and we have many) will have to work.

To Quote

What are we coming to
No room for me, no fun for you
I think about a world to come
Where the books were found by the golden ones
Written in pain, written in awe
By a puzzled man who questioned
What we were here for
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though theyre here to stay
