Random Stuph 09/06

I know it's been a while, for some weird reason this time of year always seems to be a down time for my blog postings. No idea why, it just is.

I've had a pretty busy few weeks, took my old Taurus for inspection last Friday and they said it needs new ball joints and new tires and it'll be about a bajillion (ok, $700) bucks for us to do it. I told them to go ahead and put a rejected sticker on it and I'll see if I can get some help from some friends. I called my friend Homer and he said he could do the ball joints if I bought them. Well they cost me about 60 bucks and he has my car right now fixing it. Although after talking with his son yesterday, Homer may be regretting actually agreeing to do it. More on that in another post. Once the ball joints are done, it's off to Mr. Tire, Costco or somewhere that tires are cheaper than what the other guys want.

I rediscovered Larry Norman recently. Larry was really the first "Christian" rocker. He was an incredible musician and definitely did not fit into the mold that the church wanted him to. If you get a chance check out some of his music, it may sound a bit dated but the lyrics are incredible and you won't be disappointed.

Speaking of music, if things work out there will be another Song Lyric Sunday Contest soon. Now, I may post lyrics on Sunday between now and the start of the contest but there will be NO PRIZES until the contest officially starts.

I spoke at The Night last Saturday night and while I have been a youth teacher/leader for close to 20 years, this is the first time I've actually had to prepare something akin to a sermon and deliver it front of a crowd. I was a bit nervous but other than feeling like I rushed through it a bit I thought it went well. I got good feedback from several people who would have no problem telling me if there were problems with it.

Larry Norman is pretty good. I do enjoy the lyrics.

Your speech was great!! I do hope you post something like the list of One's on your blog at some time.
