from cherrygash :
Hi, i just wanted to say thanks for the nice comment in my notes. I say you liked to read, and didnt go thru all your books, wondering if you've ever read The Hiding Place by Corri ten Boom. Older book, true story. Great one. Do you have a favorite Christian author?
from grapecloud :
I tried to leave a comment on your last entry, but I'm not sure if it showed up. It said I was a spammer (it probably wants me to stop leaving comments on people's blogs at 1 am). Anyway, good luck with your job hunt! The nature trip sounded pretty cool, I'll have to try one of those!-*Racecar*
from koorikaze :
I know you and your family are going through a lot right now and we are praying for you. However, please keep my dad and family in your prayers. Things are not going as well as they should, so to speak.
from minstrelite :
What a great song - "This I Know!" I just got past the bridge. I figured you played guitar greatly, but I had no idea you had such a great voice. And the song is so well-written, so well-constructed. I'm about to head to this one cafe in the city, and you remind me of a lot of the artists who play there - kinda folky. Great work, man - inspiring!
from fan4 :
I'm sorry to hear that.
from fan4 :
How are you Jeff?
from grapecloud :
I don't know if Mr. Toad's ride was there, we kind of missed a bunch of rides that were behind the castle, because we didn't discover them until the second time we went to the Magic Kingdom and we only went to go on Splash Mountain (which was awesome!). I actually am writing about my vacation from memory, I came back on August 21st. I went to see the Red Sox at Fenway on Thursday, actually. Man, that Nick Green sure can pitch! Too bad he's so tied up with that whole "backup shortstop" gig. It was funny actually, and I got to see Denis Leary throw out one of the first pitches. It kind of stunk how they won all the other nights I didn't go, but I'm going for my birthday as well, and that's Blue Jays game, so they should win. Bye!
from fan4 :
How's Stephanie doing currently?
from fan4 :
You have Autism Awareness, your daughter, and baseball to talk about. Seems like a lot to me. It surprised me to find out that you don't always have something to say in here.
from fan4 :
Guess I'm an anomaly then, being part of the Austistic Spectrum, yet not having those digestive problems. Lots of penpals have quit writing, not giving me a reason.
from grapecloud :
Don't worry, I actually had forgotten about it. I picked "Alone" by Edgar Allen Poe and it's coming along quite well. I'll send it to you when it's performed, which won't be for a few months, but Finale doesn't sing (which is good) and the guitar part sounds like a harpsichord (which is bad). Bye!-Kate
from fan4 :
The Underworld films don't interest me. Maybe they would if they didn't have the vampires.
from wordwhore :
No worries! Anytime, but right now especially, when it certainly sounds like you've been super busy! I've added you, just don't mention here there, if you don't mind =) Hope things will get better soon with Stephanie, and I continue to pray you guys. My dad had issues with Abilify. If his dosage was below a certain point it was totally ineffective (as we found out when he changed doctors and the new guy dropped the amount and dad ended up taking himself off it completely, which led to his current predicament), so once she adjusts to the new amount, I'm sure things will get better. grace and peace to you!
from grapecloud :
Thank you. That would be awesome. I wrote some more poems, which I'm going to write in another entry soon. Oh, and I got that e-mail the other day, I had no idea there were scams like that. I don't usually pick up the phone if I don't know who it is, so I probably wouldn't answer a call from a prison, but I'm sure there's a chance something like that could happen to me. Thanks!-Kate
from wordwhore :
Thanks! You're awesome!

Merry Christmas musicman!!! Thank you for the warm wishes.
from fan4 :
Merry Christmas!
from bindyree :
Well, Jeff, old bean, your daughter's Teixeira Angels baseball shirt just became a collectors' item. He signed with the Yankees. Good luck being a Red Sox fan in your household from here on out.
from joy-in-god :
Jeff, I read your part 1 & 2 entries on Autism. What a journey this must've been! I'm surprised your daughter wasn't diagnosed earlier! You've been very strong & I'm sure that you've found beauty & blessings in times of adversity. @--J---
from minstrelite :
I don't know what they call a "California Stop" in Texas, but I often compare smoking pot to the experience of sliding through a stop sign slowly without completely stopping while thinking: "No cop, no stop." You go easy on the brakes that way.
from tobehis :
Hey, Jeff. I finally did that music meme thing, or whatever it was. Check out my newest entry. (Or you can just see it on Facebook. LOL.)

I am new to diaries here online. I found you on the sidebar and just want you to know that I appreciate your theological sophisticiation.
from wordwhore :
thanks, i hope he gets ok soon, too. and you're welcome - i just calls 'em as i sees 'em =)
from wordwhore :
i fervently applaud your final paragraph. God chose this pres-elect - just like He chose the ones I DIDN'T like. i didn't want to comment in the entry itself, though, lest i inadvertantly start a flame war. =/ the kind of propaganda you're talking about is exactly the stuff that got me in trouble with my in-laws. they kept sending those emails and i finally had enough. anyway, i felt you exhibited the true spirit of Christianity with the things you said - and i am always so happy to see that

Want to draw attention to your diary? Check me out! I can help! If you don't then ignore this note and just think of it as a Kudos ;)
from fan4 :
From what I read, it sounded as if you had fun on your vacation!
from poohfanatic1 :
Have been following your trip to Boston. Not certainly a place I ever want to visit...so you have a CPAP, too? (Actually mine is an Auto-PAP because there is such a difference between sleeping on my side and sleeping on my back.) I have had mine a week, and quite frankly hate the thing...does it get better? I have learned there are a lot of older women at my church that like Joss Whedon. Again - sorry, can't get into it - but I feel like I am the only person who isn't. The Cowsills? Sure, I remember them. I think their big hit, though, was The Flower Girl. Hope your vacation is great - and that you don't lose your bags!
from grapecloud :
Hello! Sorry I didn't see your note right away, my e-mail tells me I don't have e-mail when I do, and then tells me I have e-mail when I don't. Newbury Comics is on Newbury Street, you should be able to walk there from Fenway, but I don't remember how to get there, I know you take a right and then walk straight for a while, and then there's a right, but I don't remember where the right is. They have a website with their address, I think the site is Newburycomics.com, and it shows the kind of stuff they sell. The weather shouldn't be too bad, I think the worst day might be Sunday, because it says scattered thunderstorms, which it said for today, too (which we are having right now). Oh yeah, I have to e-mail you my piano sonata, which I finally finished a few days ago. I just want to send it to my teacher to make sure it's what she wanted, but I'll probably e-mail you Thursday or Friday (not that you'll have the time to check it). Let me know what you think of it when you get the chance. I still haven't finished the third movement of the piece I sent you, which is pure laziness on my part. Bye!-Kate
from fan4 :
Ben started mellowing after he met Alicia. He never did feel secure in that relationship though. In his pre-FF days, he had two gfs. Alynn was his college gf. She left him to go to Hollywood. Ben even proposed to her, but she turned him down! Many years later, she visited Ben in FFHQ (I forget whether it was the Baxter Building or Four Freedoms Plaza), and Ben felt extremely nervous. Maybe he thought she'd run away in fear or something? I'm still trying to figure that one out. Anyway, Alynn had suffered a stroke, leaving one side of face permanently droopy. She came to Ben, wanting his support. It's like she wanted to know how he dealt with being the Thing, to see if in so learning, she could deal better with her situation. He met Linda McGill during his piloting days. When they attended a Freak Show, Linda said that even if Ben resembled one of those freaks, she'd love the man inside. She probably meant that hypothetically though, neither one knowing what'd happen in the future. Linda heard 'bout the rocketflight crash, and visited Ben in his apartment. Once she saw him though, she ran off. (Linda's the basis of movie Debbie. However, unlike Debbie, Linda attempted to patch things up with Ben. Ben didn't want Linda to be with him out of pity though, so he purposely frightened her.)
from fan4 :
I read through a bible study once, where the focus was on comicbook characters. The author suggested that Ben's physical transformation represented all the anger and bitterness which existed on the inside.
from fan4 :
Whatever happened to change Ben's mind, on the day of the flight, the two friends got into an argument. Reed thought everything would be fine, but Ben didn't think there was enough shielding. Sue had to call him a coward, before Ben finally said he'd do it.
from fan4 :
Reed Richards and Ben Grimm were college roommates, and somehow the scientist and jock bonded. the latter though had a rough life growing up. Ben had a brother (Dan), who died in a gang fight. Ben was only 8 at the time. He lost his faith in God at that point. (Ben's Jewish, btw.) Ben later joined the Yancy Street Gang, became its leader for awhile. Reed mentioned his rocket dream in college, and Ben agreed. (Though I've heard he wasn't serious at the time.) Ben later became a test pilot. When Reed and Ben were reunited, Reed mentioned his dream again. Ben still agreed to fly. I dunno when he became scared of the cosmic rays though.
from fan4 :
I'm reading Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Originally, that book had been assigned in class, but I struggled with it. As a result, the rest of the class finished the book, while I didn't. Sometime during my Summer Break, I decided to re-read from the beginning. I like it much better now! Still dislike Victor Frankenstein though, but at least the book's a more enjoyable read, since I can take as much time as I want. Reading assigned books usually isn't much fun.
from wordwhore :
i used to date a musician, as you may know, and i saw mediocrity win firsthand. his band was actually good - really, really good - and i know this because i still liked their music even after i dumped his sorry butt! heh, anyway, while we were still together, his band got hired to play for this other guy as his tour band coz the guy had a new video and album. the guy was lame, his lyrics were tripe, his voice was generic - and my ex's band, who were actually talented, was the jukebox into which he loaded quarters to get whatever he wanted. there is a semi-happy ending, though. while my ex's band never has made it (mainly due, i think, to his inability to keep the same 4 people for longer than 3 minutes), the quarter-loading voice of mediocrity has faded into total obscurity where he belongs.
from fan4 :
Ben last reverted to human form, at the end of Waid's run. That was awhile ago though.
from fan4 :
I consider him human, even with those powers. True, "normal" humans aren't orange and rocky, but Ben didn't lose his inner humanity either.
from wordwhore :

Hey Thanks...I've missed your comments I miss this diary of mine..I've had a really rough time, my husband passed away 6 months ago and I'm just now getting out of bed...Know what I mean! Later Peace Love ~ME~
from catsoul :
Happy Later Birthday wishes to you!! So, anyhoo, did you look into the author, Stephenie Meyer yet? Maybe your daughter would like it. Edward & Bella, now that is some love story & it is about the supernatural plus vampires. I was just wondering. =^..^=
from iamhephzibah :
Lol, yeah, I play trombone, but rather poorly. When I lived in E-land, there was like a family that always got first and 2nd chair. So I started playing bass trombone so i didn't have competition. I picked it up in 5th grade bc my brother had played it too. LOL
from iamhephzibah :
reading your rangers entry made me miss my small town near fort worth... and season tickets to six flags... and big shopping malls.... and celebrate freedom (at which I got sick... not fun!) ... and just the randomness of being only an hour and a half away from ft. worth. Anyway, be blessed! <3 zee
from chaosdaily :
thanks for joining the forum!
from minstrelite :
I sort of thought that a "seeker church" would be something along those lines. And Scripture does say that there is "none who seeks after God, not one." Pray for me today if you get this, I am in a terrible mess, and really scared.

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that my diary will occasionally be found locked. This is not a permanent thing, and you are welcome to the password, simply email me at cantslayme@yahoo.com. You'll find my reasons for locking my diary once you've unlocked it. Thanks for reading!
from grapecloud :
Thank you for the comment on my guitar. I don't really play that one anymore. I play my classical now, since I got into the Music Department at URI as a classical guitar player. I just found out about that yesterday. I kind of wanted to see Sweeney Todd because I heard it was good, but I'm not a huge Johnny Depp fan. I'll have to write more to you later, I've been on a bit of a writing spree for the past hour, meaning I finally updated my diary. Bye!-Kate
from wordwhore :
that's a great joe south song. my favorite is probably "don't it make you wanna go home?" but it's too depressing to listen to very often, since i don't think it has ever failed to make me cry.
from minstrelite :
Hey Jeff, I locked my diary for a while. Is your email address the same as it was three years ago? I want to let you in, and I'd like to email you the username/password combo.
from silverluna :
I'm not as nervous as you think. I've done this before. But not as the worship leader singing with my parents as background. It's some pressure, with picking the right songs and all. but I know God will take care of the rest. He'll get it all together, and in the end He will be praised...

The username is your username, and the password is fenway. Let me know if it works or not and I'll fix it if it doesn't. Yeah, I saw the end of the game and I thought Manny was going to blow it like he has been lately. I was shocked when it went over the Monster seats. Bye!-Kate

Thanks for the add! I LOVE Buffy (t.v show). Can't wait to read your entries!
from fan4 :
I have many linkers, but not very many readers. No one's expressed any interest in the "Pay it Forward" activity.
from grapecloud :
I went to Fenway to see Wakefield pitch on Thursday and it was awesome! I'm glad that you enjoyed your day at Fenway, too. I figured that you would. I had to lock my diary late last night, so I went to sleep before I could give you a password. Your username is musicman6724 and your password is fenway, which you ought to remember. Bye!-Kate

Wow, play by play right here on Diary land. Thank you for the well wishes. You have an awesome Easter. Sandyz
from fan4 :
me again, sorry. I disagree with you about "The Devil Wears Prada". I watched that film in a theater, and was bored. I had to walk out because nothing about that movie appealed to me.
from fan4 :
"My temp ranged from 99.8 to 100.5 Sounds like radio stations. It ranged from The Wolf to Jack FM. Hahaha.... "Of course no one will get that because those are local stations." You wrote those words in February. I've never listened to "The Wolf", but I know of it's existence. It's not just a Texas Station. Jack FM on the other hand doesn't sound familiar to me. (Sorry if me swarming you with diaryland notes is annoying. I'm just now attempting to play catch-up with my favorite Diarylanders. I don't remember when I last read diaries in here.)
from fan4 :
I continue to struggle when it comes to reading my ONe Year bible. I keep falling behind with the readings....

Heh, here's yet another note from me. I didn't know Ioan Gruffudd was in Amazing Grace. His last name's pronounced "Griff-ith" IIRC. All the other FF cast members have easier names than that! I've seen Ioan in two movies: 102 Dalmations and Fantastic Four.

Yeah I remember being freaked when my daughter was 18...now I spaz again knowing that in one year my granddaughter will be 18. Good Lord I think I have been here long enough to wear out my welcome. I am glad the knee is doing better, and I do no how the Jetsons are. Sigh... I am a walking history book. Hum...not such a bad thing. Hope all is well, I am glad to see you have updated. Sandyz
from fightn4life :
Take care of that weight says reflection in the mirror. So far my blood surgar is ok but my weight is sky rocketing. I need to keep watch or I'll be following family tradition. Mom's on daily injections. I get my MIR tests today...nerves frayed, I want normal what ever that is. AI...hum, they always make me mad. I read a book. ;) Sandyz
from fightn4life :
I'll be thinking about you at the Dr's. Yeah life changes...again. Sorry. I watched "House" last night, missed Idol...(didn't really miss it I didn't want to watch it.) Take care now and keep updating after your appointment. Good thoughts and prayers coming your way. Sandyz

What is it about this time of year that seems to knock us down...that longing for spring? Positive healing thoughts are being sent to you, take care, prayers are with you. Sandyz
from grapecloud :
That is so cool that you are going to Fenway! Did you hear about Schilling? I think they should have signed him for another year, but I guess it's because of 2004. I don't think I'll ever forget that and he should end his career with the team he started it with. I hope they reconsider. Anyway, you should do some sightseeing around Boston, it's awesome. The area around Berklee College of Music has tons of music shops, it's really cool. The Museum of Science is awesome as well. Berklee isn't too far from Fenway, you can see Fenway from there, that's one of the many reasons I want to go there. That and it's a good school. Bye!-Kate

"And here I thought I was the only person who had that problem...(after readying the newest entry on Feb 19th)" What are you talking about. On 2-19-07, I didn't type up a diary entry.
from fightn4life :
Thanks for the comments concerning my dilemma at work; I believe I have a workable solution without confrontation. Thanks for you input, it helped rethink what I believe in. Also great movie picks, I had been thinking about what to do on days off, perfect. Thanks for the update on your young one; always like knowing all is well as expected, some days even better. Sandyz

Thanks so much for your comment. And yes, any links you have I would greatly appreciate. We are trying the gluten/casien free diet now. I don't think it is making much of a difference. And I will get that book, sounds like it is right up my alley. (I claim exemptions on the vaccines now, I HATE that she was vaccinated to 18 months.) Again, thank you so much for your support, and kind words. My email is whyzpurs@aol.com Have a wonderful evening. ♥

I tried to leave a note on your guestbook, but I think it's down (they're always down). I wish I could sleep and think that God would be watching. I just worry that even though He is watching, that he can't really do anything about all the worries I have. I feel like there are so many other people who are in worse situations than I am, that I can't depend on Him for help. I usually am up at night worrying about all the things in my life that keep coming up. Still, it's nice that you can sleep well at night, it seems like a gift in this modern world. Bye!-Kate

Hey Jeff, I'll e-mail it to you. I locked it a few days ago so as to work through a situation that's probably inappropriate to discuss publicly. (A financial thing.)
from fightn4life :
I love your list, I will keep a copy close by me as well. I decided on "changes" this coming year. I hope between your awesome quest and my changes this year will be one to look back on with gladness. Happy New Year to you, I still can not think...2007 yet. :) Sandyz

For some reason, I thought about you when I got up this Sunday morning, and I thought, "I wonder what that guy Jeff's been up to?" Then I checked, and it looks like you've sure been seeing a lot of shows lately! How's it going? I still use the English Standard Version you sent me, all the time. Even when I go on Bible Gateway, I go to ESV now.
from fightn4life :
I think at times I'll give up my Diary for lack of time well lack of updating. But...something triggers a feeling not to let go, never know when the need to spill words will over come us. If you don't update everyday, I'll will still be waiting when you do. Sandyz
from fightn4life :
Some times people meaning to help do more harm when they have little understanding of what cause they are standing up for. They need to stay seated until they fully understand the truth behind the lives of those affected. The same with only narrow minds that see only a mite of what research can truly help. Idiots. OkI'll shut up too. Sandyz
from godzgirlz :
Before my Dad passed he gave me a T-Shirt that read "Kill em all and let God sort them out" Now as evil as that might seem..There are more days than there aren't that I want to run thru the corridors of peoples minds spewing this message with CAPS and then say suspisiously "Don't worry I will pray for your souls" I feel as though I'm falling and cast away too often... I look upward to see if God is still reaching for me and as I feel the deathly ground beneathe my back I swallow my heart and pray for pity..No one is safe, no one is coming for me it's just me and God and faith...and so I fight this battle without weapons and without fellow warriors and I release my hands of wickedness as often as I can just to find favor I knew somehow had lost when I couldn't feel His arms or grace in my life. Do I ever make sense? Peace Out!
from fightn4life :
Thank you so much for the great information links. :) Sandyz
from grapecloud :
That's so cool that you mentioned me. I'm sorry I don't comment often. I hate setbacks like that, I know that's been happening to me lately, I felt really happy for a while, and now I feel the way I felt when I was in school. Those are always the times when you feel like giving up on something but I think that the rewards for Stephanie long term are worth it. If she can find a way to overcome the challenges she faces with he autism now, then it will make the rest of her life better as well. As far as medical stuff goes, it takes quite a while for the body to react to things and to find the right stuff. That's really just how iI see it though, I know my depression ha s been like that. Bye. *Racecar*

Oh Lord do I recall the "meltdowns" with the teens. Some day all of you will look back and laugh at these times.

Hi. I saw your note on fan4's page, and decided to come check your page out. (I haven't gotten to your actual journal yet, just reading the profile for now.)

from poohfanatic1 :
Say, I keep forgetting to say that...how does one say they don't like something that someone has done...well, it's your picture on your diary. Can you tell me the significance of it? Something to do with Buffy? It gives the impression that you are much younger than you are and...well, not the sort of person I think you are. I guess that's sort of politic since other people will read it. It isn't meant to be a slam, I've just been REAL curious. If I were to go to the trouble to put images on my site (which I have no idea how to do), it would probably be veggie tales, images from the new movie Cars, or something like that. Which would also give a wrong impression of me - so maybe I'm say off base here. I have 3 and a half days of school left counting today. I do so miss getting out in early June...
from hip2bme :
Thank you so much!!! Sorry for not replying before, I got carried away on my description of my 15th birthday party and ended up getting the video to see the time of the cerimony so I could describe it well! hahaha Once again thank you very much for wishing me happy birthday and I hope everything goes well between Steph and the psychologist. Make sure she likes the psychologist, ok? Otherwise it won't work. There won't be any transfer and if it does, it won't be in a positive way. Have a psychologist whom she likes and keep doing what you already do, which is support her and I'm sure things will be alright! Hugs!

I'm so happy to read about how Stephanie is doing. Some families when facing autism simply decide to leave it. Autism IS curable, alright! I'm so proud of you! Your strengh. As a psychologist, it's my main interest and the subject of my researches. That's the way autism is. We can beat it, opening a child at a time! Try putting Stephanie on a routine during the vacations. I bet it's going to be easier on you all. I can't say how proud I am to see how you treat her. Congratulations. Much love to you and your family! Anele

I was excited reading about hope...more than you know. I will follow links and keep up with your progress, have a wonderful trip. BTW...thanks for adding me to your favorites, I followed your banner and was hooked. I didn't have the time to leave a comment but had to add you so I would not lose you in a wave of diary land diaries. Sandyz
from poohfanatic1 :
Just read your entries about Stephanie. Wow! Having worked with a variety of autistic children of varying degrees in my career, I know how rewarding and frustrating it can be. I can also give you some support as to the fact that chelation WORKS! It isn't a cure-all, but it can help a great deal. Had a friend who went through it for mercury poisoning (although she tried to do it too much too fast to save money because she wasn't on insurance and it made her really sick) and what originally had been a diagnosis of lupus and/or whatever that syndrome is that makes you tired all the time (I am running on little sleep so my brain's not working) was changed after she got dramatically better. Stephanie has missed out on a lot of social "imprinting" from her early years, but I think you really do have hope that she'll be able to eventually get a "normal" education (whatever that is) and have a great life. My old podiatrist has Aspergers' and there is a family at my church who has an Aspergers' daughter who has really blossomed in the past couple of years. I'll certainly put the whole situation on my prayer list, and you likely did the right thing getting her into public school. Very, very few private schools (particularly church schools) have good resources for autism - unless it is a dedicated autistic school. At least that is what the story is around here.

Actually, my parents are in Romania on a week-long mission trip, and from the sound of it, they're having NO time to site-see! :) If they happen to make it to Dracula's Castle, however, I'll forward you the pictures!
from me-me-meee :
When you come to that point, I would be interested in reading how you cope in your relationship with Stephanie. I think that is an important aspect of any parenting partnership when it comes to having a special needs child. So far, part 1 was very intriguing. I have bookmarked you for now and will add you as a friend later.
from poohfanatic1 :
Ah, I know who it is - Patty Forman. We along with sister Jane have sent Christmas letters every year for several years (since their parents died). I'm now in e-mail correspondance with her - I don't think you got to know them much, they lived next door to me. She told me on a visit home (family reunion and family business board meeting) that my old house in Arlington is for sale and she gave me a realty website to see the inside pictures. It's way different. http://pinnaclegrouprealtors.texas.remax.com/listings/ListingDetail_r4.aspx?LID=18571612 It's still for sale, so hurry to go through the photo album. Many trees have been cut, lots of new paint - but I can't figure out what they did to the master/Mom's bathroom area exactly. I have an idea, but it would have required extensive replumbing.
from poohfanatic1 :
I don't remember which entry I said I was corresponding with someone, but it wasn't any of the Girardot's. Although Laura just lives in Seattle, we have lost touch pretty much. We were fairly good friends until I broke up with Terry and I guess she got put out with me. I did see her in November when I went to the 20th anniversary bash for the Ballard Sedentary Sousa Band and all alumni were invited to come and play. She has two boys, probably about age 12 and 7 or so. She just turned 50 in January. I haven't seen Toni since I went back for my 20th HS reunion. I assume she and Paul are still married, living somewhere around Austin or Houston and that he is still in church work. I do know that brother Daniel is a huge big-wig in Catholic music circles, being the music director of one of the largest churches down there, I think in Sugarland, and also directs a Schola Cantorum group. I also saw eldest sister Suzanne (who also lives in Seattle) at the Sousa thing, she is on her 3rd marriage. Dr. Girardot died of cancer sometime around 1996 or so. I think Mrs. Girardot is living w/Daniel (or near him). That's about all I know about them. Nope, did not remember you were a Calvinist. I think maybe your theology was not as nailed down back then. I did read Warren's book and was part of a Bible study group (from another church) for a year that was doing that curriculum. My reaction to it is...a shrug and "eh"? I'm all for simplification. A book I read last year, Simpler Living - Compassionate Life, is one of the best things I have read about that. These separatist monks, nuns, priests, religious whatevers have hit on a real grain of truth in simplifying life. I don't think that separating yourself from the world is the way to go, but I certainly support those who do.

Thanks for the compliment and kind words. They helped to make my day. :)

You're welcome.

Happy belated birthday!
from catie-dids :
hey there!! so sorry that it has taken 10 years to get back to you. . .God has been so amazing. . .providing one more approval through NAMB, I will be moving to Cleveland for a year and then will more than likely be based out of Atlanta. . .craziness!! It's amazing to see the bizarre way that God works. Now I have to pray for 25K so that I can live!!
from poohfanatic1 :
I'm always a little bit saddened when someone I know votes against it. I won't vote against it, but neither will I drive to Olympia every January (I forget the date) when people from all over go to protest about it. We usually have a large contingent from my church - all straight - go down. I think that I'm old enough that activism doesn't appeal to me, and secure enough knowing that everything is in God's control and why don't we let him take charge? I am learning a whole lot from my principal about resting in God's grace, love, and protection.
from fan4 :
I'm an only child. Sometimes I wish I had had siblings.
from poohfanatic1 :
I think about you every Dec. 23 (just looked at your archives) as well. That's also my parents wedding anniversary. I finally finished my Mother's wedding china collection - she never did get all the pieces. Ebay is a wonderful thing. You know, I can't remember the lawyer's name either...

Wasn't it the Guess Who who did that song that went: "No time left for you...I got me some wings...I got, got, got no time..." (?) If so, I'm supposed to get some points. ;-)
from minstrelite :
Hi Jeff--I happened to read you this morning, and I have to admit I'm kind of bad at that too. Sometimes something from the Word strikes me in the morning, or even just something of the Spirit upon awakening, and if I don't watch out, I find that a few hours later, I'm in a totally different space, more carnal. I like what you wrote today about carrying the Word with you throughout the day.
from poohfanatic1 :
It was a sad, sad, day for us at Totem Middle School when the district blocked the HSR website...but the choir director has quite a few Strong Bad e-mails on a disc, so when life was bad, we'd all gather in his office and have a great laugh. My favorite song by far is the Secret Song on the last cut on the CD, I think it's number 20? Or should I say it is Seqwet Song? If you've never discovered it, it's about 6:20 into Everybody to the Limit. I don't know if he'll get fired for it someday, but at some point in the year, the choir director plays Secret Song for the beginning choir classes as sort of a lesson in "bad singing". And of course we all have our favorite lines from HSR, mine is from the end of Secret Song where he softly says, "Good Enough". That's a website that if it ever got really, really popular, I could see a 30 minute cartoon series happening on Comedy Central which would destroy its charm. I think that's what happened to South Park. I used to be a real devotee of South Park until it got too raunchy. It was the squirrel episode that did it. I even sold all my South Park DVD's. That was several years ago. Anyway, HSR at least is still pretty darned clean.
from poohfanatic1 :
Debated whether or not to leave a note. It has been nice to read your journal entries and find out how your life has been. Still a Red Sox fan and video game addict, huh? I'm still teaching band. Dad died last fall, Mom back in 95, so I'm an orphan. Sorry to hear about Grandmama. I wondered about her off and on throughout the years. I spent an hour one afternoon reading through your journal entries. Just made my first online journal entry a few minutes ago. Don't know what I'm doing, but most of my friends are into webloging, so I thought I'd join the fray as well. Take care.
from ghostiness :
When have I ever rolled my eyes at you saying that "alternative" is mainstream? I AGREE with you, dingbat. My response is always that there IS no alternative.
from ghostiness :
Maybe you should realize that I am putting my "huge" brain to work to HELP kids like Stephanie. I really don't think she would understand what it means, and since when is lying to a kid to avoid the inevitable a good thing? And also: Babysitter Schmabysitter. I don't like strange people living with me for a week, no matter who they're there to look after. I can barely stand the maids, that Tom guy, or anyone else over at our house for more than an hour.
from myownjourney :
Hey, thanks for the note. I'd love to have the info on that, thanks. My email is: rick_dairy@yahoo.com . And I'm glad you can appreciate that site also. Alot of people get the wrong impression of it. Which is too bad, really. Anyway, thanks.

Hey, just checking back to say I hope you're remaining encouraged in the Lord! There's nowhere safer than in His awesome arms! Peace and Love in Christ Anj

A) A Slayne is what happens when a Slayer and Sloane mate. B) Why does Ritalin make kids slow down when cocaine is an "upper?" C) Did you just say that the "trickcyclist" got off on giving Stephanie drugs? You're sick. Sick sick sick. *wink*
from b-w-p :
It's one of my greatest irks that "third parties" aren't allowed to participate in the national televised debates. I was a Libertarian for several years (but had too many disagreements with the platform) before registering as an Independent. But when the two major parties give you a choice between a man who says "nuke-you-ler" and a man who is on all sides of every issue, people really should feel they have another choice. Mind you, Nader got knocked off the ballot in my state, so it's just Badnarik as an alternative. Fortunately, we don't do daylight savings here (in AZ). I think the (former) governor who decided we wouldn't participate said something like, "We live in a desert. The last thing we need to save is more daylight."
from minstrelite :
Boy, I think the Lord might have led me to your recent entry re: "Scribbling in the Sand." I like this: "The Bible calls forth the fullest range of emotions, from anger and disappointment to praise and worship. Therefore, be honest." I think the problem with some Christian music is that it won't acknowledge the full range of human emotions that Scripture deals with, so the songs wind up sounding contrived, as though the singer is in denial. People are definitely impressed when our music and lyrics are more real. They are then more likely to see that our faith, in fact, is real.

Jack FM is Dave FM in Atlanta. We got it about 2-3 months ago. It's the only music station I listen to, that is when I'm not listening to Sports Talk.

will visit again and read your diary. saw you through maliger whom i saw through minstrelite. see yah! Hope you drop by sometime too.

Hi, I guess you know me through minstrelite, though I don't know if we've met. My girlfriend's favorite band is the Dave Matthews Band, and I saw that was one of yours too in your profile. I hope you enjoy my diary and poetry, I will add you to my list soon.
from minstrelite :
I'm not sure about that guy's motivations either, but thanks for ignoring it. Some of what he said was based on fact, but I didn't get a drunken driving and I'm not on probation. I was involved in an accident while falling asleep on the road, it was my fault legally so I had to face certain consequences, and I shared the story with some guys who evidently exaggerated it. I'm deleting everyone from that cult from my address book. God bless.
from brucedowns :
Jeff, I'm a huge "Wizard of Oz" fan. I have read 18 different OZ books to my son. By the way did you know that there are 40 sequels to the first book "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" Checkout this site for the books: http://www.welcometooz.net/index.html
from imaginated :
agreed!
from minstrelite :
I sent you an email earlier, but happened to read your recent note again & want to comment that I also go with the interpretation you do as per Psalm 37:1-4. For me, that's the interpretation that makes sense as well as is the more beautiful of the two.
from minstrelite :
Right, I know. I think what you're saying is what Augustine meant, and also where Paul is at in Romans 7 when he talks about NOT doing what he wants, inferring that his "want" is to do the things of God, and his flesh deprives him of fulfilling that spiritual desire. I said what I said not to throw a monkey wrench into all this, but only after realizing that my witness was lousy because I was giving off the impression of a kind of cavalier, happy-go-lucky irresponsibility; in other words, doing whatever I "wanted" in a more carnal and less spiritual sense. Does that make sense?
from minstrelite :
No need to apologize to me, man. I've been out of the loop myself as far as my Internet friends have been concerned, because I sold my computer a few months ago and have only had limited internet access in libraries, etc., for a while now. It just happens that I'm house-sitting for a friend now, and she is letting me use her system, so I'm looking everybody up. I've also been concerned about my own walk, and I think that for me, what it comes down to is making sure that I have a solid church and consistent fellowship. I have no problem praying and reading Scripture, but without the influence of other Christians to whom I can be accountable and vice-versa, my walk suffers. Anyway, it's good to hear from you, and by the way, I no longer have your email address, because when I sold the computer to my ex-landlord's housekeeper, he rushed me out of the house and didn't give me enough time to print out my Outlook address book. (That's a story in itself.) Also, my EarthLink address no longer exists, but you can write to me at my hotmail address, if you want, which is just like my DiaryLand handle, at hotmail dot com. God bless you.

Long time no talk to, brother. How goes?

Oh, not another one... I saw one yesterday, but just left it alone. I'm such a shame.

I took note of "Messy Spirituality - God's Annoying Love for Imperfect People." I'm going to be heading to the bookstore to check it out. *smiles* Thank you for writing about it.

What a weekend, that sounds like an awesome concert/event. Ive seen Carlos 1996 Atlanta Olympics, Jeff Beck, James Taylor, and also the new Journey, the new lead looks and sounds just like Perry, I can not tell the difference. And I promise Im listening to the Styx Classics Volume 15 as I read this, Gods truth. Although this CD is missing one of my all time favorite Styx song Lori (spelling?) man Im glad to hear they are still playing. Take care, Bruce

Hey thanks, Jeff. I'm still blown away that Rob accepted Christ. We've been battling each other over the chessboard for twenty-five years. And God has blessed me in so many other ways, I just want to give Him thanks and honor and glory and praise. I hope He is blessing you as well.
from minstrelite :
Thanks for your condolences, Jeff. And I do count you a friend and a brother. As you may or may not have read, my Mom accepting Christ on Monday, October 6th, three days before the Lord took her. So she is at her true home now, which is an encouraging thought in times of mourning her loss her on Earth. May He come soon.
