A good cider tastes so much better after a long dry spell. :)

Cider? So early in the morning?

Nah, last night, just before bedtime. I hadn't had a whole pint of it since forever, and thankfully I'm none the worse for it. :)

There is not a single time during the day when cider is inappropriate.

Got an email from my property manager in Colorado about move out inspections and crap. He's a real slumlord, and had the smarminess to say "Hope your new job and surroundings are satisfactory.  You are going to miss Colorado. Been there done that."

Yeah I don't miss it and there was never anything to miss in the first place. I really want to say that, but then I have my 700 deposit in the balance so I can't fire back.

Hate being in a position like this.

Odd. 6 hours is more than enough sleep for me. I go to bed at 2:00AM and wake up at 8:00AM everyday and feel just fine. I'm sure this will go away once I age and my body starts to go downhill like all the old folks on here  :D

I could easily sleep for 15 hours or more. Sometimes when there's nobody to wake me up I (accidentally) sleep till 16:00.

A mouse lived in a windmill in old Amsterdam
A windmill with a mouse in and he wasn't grousin'
He sang every morning, "How lucky I am,
Living in a windmill in old Amsterdam!"

I saw a mouse!
Where?
There on the stair!
Where on the stair?
Right there!
A little mouse with clogs on
Well I declare!
Going clip-clippety-clop on the stair.

Today I was praying at the church where my worship group meets to help with problems in my life. The church is part of the Vineyard churches. The pastor, whom I already knew, stopped to talk about was troubling me. Half of what he said was inspirational and good, but the other half I could tell was false doctrine-inherited sin nature, the born-again believer having a new nature, OSAS. Thank God He helped me be discerning!

Ray Comfort, creator of the banana destroys all atheist arguments (see Kirk Cameron), with this gem. Love that he refers to his followers as a species. No wonder why he is a Creationist.

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth. - John 4:24

Now what does the Message say:

"It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.” - John 4:23-24

Fixed one of our Go-Karts today.  Had the Master Jet set too closed.  Had a good idle, but when you hit the gas it would start clugging along (not fast).  After the adjustment, more gas could go into the carb and powered right up.
