(Warning: The post of fragments you are about to read contains Lisleman’s fact and fiction. It only takes a quick spin on my office chair to start my fragments spinning.)
(a text) K C U @ 3:32 - I've received many of these type texts lately since our daughter got accepted in a graduate program and she has been commuting into the city on the train.
I have a BSEE and the idea of masters or even PhD crossed my mind but family, living, and money didn't seem to allow it. I do enjoy learning. I look back with NO regrets. In fact pursuing it may have kept me from some of the vacations and events I had with my family. It’s hard to say, but they do cost money and time. Don't stop learning. Learning is bigger than any course work and is as close as your own head.
Men are from bars, women are bloggers. Sure I blog and there’s few men bloggers that visit here. But my no politics and very little sports coverage might not match well with guys. I really don’t know. I suspect that guys just don’t read blogs much. Maybe the internet is like Playboy - the many distracting pictures keeps you from reading the good stories on blogs.
Just a short fragment on politics. I just confirmed that our congressional district was redrawn and we are now in a different district. Every house seat is subject to change in the upcoming election so my representative might have changed anyway but now it will for sure.
The reason I mention religion is the recent news story about the possibility that Jesus had a wife. My first reaction about this ancient script was “they found a honey-do list?” If Jesus was married I would think she would have be referenced at least once in those stories while he was hanging with the boys.
Married - no matter either way. I read this Chicago Tribune article about it and completely agree that this news prompts people to discuss religion which is good thing when everyone acts respectfully. The author of the article who is with the Archdiocese of Chicago, brought up a bible passage (Matthew 8: 14-15:) in which Jesus cured Peter’s mother-in-law of a fever. The strangest part for me is at the end of passage. After the fever left her, she waited on them and in some versions served them a meal. I’m thinking Peter saying something like, “Ok my buddy healed you, now off and make us sandwiches.” Don’t you think there is humor in the Bible?
I love it when readers go for a scroll on my blog. Please feel free to scroll around the blog. If you saw my last post you know I went to the ledge and back.
Oh there's a new treat for readers going to the bottom (of the page) - see/listen - new slideshow.
