See you all in a week
I'll be away for a week on the mid north coast of the state. My mother is giving me a birthday holiday, all expenses paid and I am really looking forward to this. I'm also looking forward to eating fresh fish lunches at the local co-op, leisurely cups of coffee and a trip out in the local dolphin and whalewatching boat. Walks along the beach sound good too. Weather looks as if it should be just right for a winter beach holiday.

Idi Amin dead
Idi Amin has died of kidney failure in a Saudi hospital. He had a reputation for extreme cruelty and torture and was known as "the butcher," killing tens of thousands of his countrymen. Many of those he killed have never been found as bodies were often thrown into rivers instead of being buried.

Could it happen here?
The general opinion is that the blackouts affecting parts of Canada and the USA are unlikely to occur here, according to most authorities. Our system is apparently set up in a different way with many checks and balances. However, no one is ruling out that major disruptions could be possible. In my state, there have been warnings for the last few weeks that the infrastructure needs upgrading to cope efficiently with the large drain that air conditioners make on it in the summer.

Back here in February I wrote on dodgy exegesis which resulted in equating voting for Labor with going to hell because Labor was left politically and the goats in the parable are also left.

Today I was informed that Isaac was at least 25 years old when the obedience of Abraham was tested in Genesis 22.. How did he come by this information? The dates in the Bible margin told him so. Perhaps Abraham made a date in his Palm Pilot that came down through the years? Complete with BC references ? No, these are Usher's dates. He's already been entangled in a mess with these once before by following them down from 4000BC, only to find a very short space of time in which to fit events which obviously took place over a much longer period.

It seems that to lie is human
This is one of the conclusions drawn in this report from the ABC.

They didn't sing ...my chains fell off...
Read Bene's and Selina's updates and accounts of Richard's sermon marathon. Eleven sermons in one day would indeed be a marathon, but Richard has cycled from one church to another to preach them. A real circuit rider. And this on the hottest weekend Britain has experienced in very many years. Heat even we Aussies would call hot.

He's now exhausted, tired but happy, as we used to say in early primary essays. I've been praying about this effort for quite a while now, and I'm thankful it has been completed safely.

Can we make a circuit of connections in blogs for this? Or should that be connexions?
