link me

So what am I doing here with a piece of green board ( printed circuit board ) and a tabletop lighter? Well, pictures can lie and I'm actually happy in this one. I'm happy because I've got some 273 emails to return from being gone over the weekend ( not including junk mail ) DVD's to send out and meetings to be had, speach to write for Thursday afternoon, sermon to write for Thursday morning and all forms of work related duties. I need to set this aside because I desperitely need to clean up / out my office area so we can put our house on the market in the next week or two. This isn't really interesting to anyone but me and my patient wife. The trick is that I started my cleaning with some podcasts like Joel O., KRCW's Martini shot, This American Life and PRI's The World: Technology. The ones I like the best are the personal stories of Hollywood screen writer Rob Long where he talks about his work and life. It hit me that what he's saying isn't news either... that's the point. I'm interested in his personal take on stuff. I reminded me that when I've been busy my blog has been ( sigh ) boring. This post isn't insightful into the world of scrapbooking, doesn't break industry news or bring you on location to the crop party bomb that erupted in Alabama last week. It's just me packing up computer parts and using an errand table lighter I grabbed to add some fill light for the picture. They're out because I'm a little sad about giving away many of my belongings to downsize and make life easier. It's a good thing.

That said, I'm still eager to post more pics and info on the Scrap Etc. event tonight / tomorrow, post a link to my friend Tony's google map spot in the bush of Queensland, Australia and show you pictures of some of the lofts Connie and I have been looking at to call our new home. I want advice and opinions. ;0)

I actually was making this post to say that links make the online world go around and I'm trying to boost my technorati ratings so it's a free for all now. Send me the address to your blog and I'll post it, hoping you'll do the same.

Rock On!

A man who scrapbooks and writes, most recently inspired by you!

I'm sure you met Kellicrowe at the throw down last weekend, she's my other fav blog


Good to see you back, good luck with the home selling.

A loft seems much more fitting to your lifestyle and personalities. I mean really, the 'burbs and the cow in the neighbors yard? Come on!

DOH! Sorry I dropped the ball on linking to so many people!

and yes, I did get to meet Kelli Crowe. She's a hoot! She was prancing around in several different outfits as she hosted the rave. I also met Kristina and took her class. It was her first ever and she just killed. Very personable, very helpful, very creative.

Hey Disney Scrapper. I guess "Sermon" would be in the simplest sense. I was asked to speak at William Penn University because they were showing a previous project I did that evening. I was going to speak in Chapel and then in a classroom.

The gist of my lesson was going to be about Galations 5:22-23. It's pretty easy to fall into a trap of rules and regulations, at least for me. I try to gauge my worthiness be being good or bad which is a loosing battle. What I've grown into in the last couple years is fruit in my life. I ended up getting "love joy peace patience kindness goodness faithfulness gentleness self control" put on my body right where I can see it because that's what I aspire to be if God's alive in my life.

I used to be a liscened minister, even performed a marriage ceremony, administered the sacredotal elements, etc. and have since laid it all down.
