The Journey Continues

My journey this week reminded me that the Lord’s word is our refuge and strength.

Exploring Nature

The new year is off to a fine start around my place. In the past few days, I have been delighted to see yellow-rumped warblers, fondly called “butter-butts” by some folks. I’ve also seen ladder-backed and golden-fronted woodpeckers. All were attracted by a hanging block of suet – peanut variety.

The Big Chili

Tailgating at the big game is a timehonored and beloved tradition for millions of football fans. Tailgates tend to be parties in parking lots, and no party is complete without food.

Opinions

Government is not a business and doesn’t run like one. That “run government like a business” motto you hear from political candidates comes from the “tastes great, less filling” school of advertising.

I have been voting by mail for the last 12 years. It has always been a simple process. But this year's experience with vote-bymail is far more difficult than it used to be. In some counties, half of the applications are being rejected because of identity problems that don't appear to be the fault of the applicants as much as the fault of inadequate or inaccurate databases available to election clerks and confusing application forms.

Neither of the top candidates for governor of Texas wants to keep jailing people for possession of marijuana. Reefer madness has been replaced by reefer indifference.
