Happy Halloween! Muah-ha-haaa!
One of my students in computer class is a left-handed mouse user. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a left-handed mouse user in the wild before. He puts the mouse on the opposite side of the keyboard and clicks with his index finger. I commented on how unusual it was, but he didn’t seem to think so.
He’s one of the more dedicated coding students.
I continue to have ants trickling into my kitchen. It’s not enough ants that I need to put poison out. Instead, I just crush them whenever I see them. I’ve noticed it with other ants, but with this variety, it’s particularly strong – there is a powerful chemical smell that emanates from the crushed ants. It’s sort of ammonia-like. It reminds me of an all-purpose kitchen cleaner. Or maybe it smells like something flammable. Maybe I should try to light the ants.
At first, I only noticed the chemical smell accidentally, but now I almost compulsively have to smell it whenever I crush an ant.
But I still would be happy if the ants just stopped coming into my kitchen.
Such a big smell from a small ant.
My site just switched over to a new server. My IT guy Lloyd is consolidating the web pages he oversees and switched things.
In the process of switching, today’s post was lost, as were all the comments made today. The post was about today being National Cat Day. I posted a picture of Gus and a video of him trying to rub up against my leg.
Here is the picture
Here is the video:
I got some new glasses. I have been seeing a lot of retro frames lately. Apparently, they’re fashionable among millennials who dress in the Hipster style. I don’t know about that, but these glasses remind me of Grandpa Hummel, who wore Grandma Hummel’s glasses sometimes. They were cheap online, so I thought: Why the heck not? and I got them.
I could blend right in with 27-year-olds, right?
I gave the message in church again yesterday. HERE it is. I am glad to be able to help out in this way. Without having any formal training in message writing, I’m not sure if I’ve been doing messages the way a seminary professor would like. My messages tend to be pretty didactic. Still, I’ve been enjoying the process every time I do it.
Yesterday my church choir sang at an afternoon Reformation celebration, so I had the opportunity to hear a message based on the same readings I used. It was quite different.
Lots of red.
Attending the service was fun. I saw a ton of people I haven’t seen in a while. I’ve been in Baltimore long enough that I know people from churches all over town. This service brought many of them together. It was so fun to see them.
The sun was setting by the end. It was pretty.
