Because You Need To Know

One ostrich egg is equal to 22 chicken eggs.

Finished: Overdose of Death

On a Hercule Poirot kick. He's not my favorite, but then again, I don't know French.

Overdose of Death, Agatha Christie

Finished: Curtain

Agatha, Agatha, Agatha. You surprised me this time.

Finished: Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIHM

It didn't seem to matter how endearing and resourceful Mrs. Frisby was. When I heard the scurry under the stove, I hightailed it upstairs and spent the rest of the night there.

Children's Literature

Here's an interesting insight from Al Mohler, and a caution to know what the books and movies our children read and watch are about.
My complaint about Harry Potter falls exactly into this category: the boy is disobedient and often doesn't get disciplined as he ought because he's "the one". As if our children's brilliance and talents supercede our parental authority! Likewise with the Goofy Movie. Such disrespect Max has for his Dad!

Amazing Grace

Click on it. I'm ready for being there ten thousand years, just like that, but better!


**NOTE: I don't know who these men are, but I can worship while they sing, even if they aren't worshiping (which I don't know if they are or not, so I'm just sayin'...) That's why the ten thousand years will be better.

I've Got To Stop Posting Before 7 AM

This is just getting out of hand. But I just got this error message when I was posting a comment on a blog:

"You are posting comments too quickly. Slow down."

The Vowel

This is a sentence to explore the usage of vowels:

His immanence was imminent.

The Bottom Line

So, the bottom line is that you're just the same as everyone else, it just manifests itself differently. So quit being so critical.

Finished: The Umbrella Man and other stories

I know understand why I didn't like James and the Giant Peach. It is because Roald Dahl was meant to write short stories...this is his forte.

I absolutely and thoroughly enjoyed every single short story in this collection. (You can disregard the fact that I like most short stories in general...there's just something about that genre.)

At any rate, this collection did not disappoint me. At first when I saw who it was by, I thought to myself, "I've had enough of him". Glad I read the "and other stories" part on the cover, and decided to read it.

The Umbrella Man and other stories, Roald Dahl
