Bag of Randomness

  • Yup, we took a trip to the mall to see Santa yesterday.  DaughterGeeding was pretty scared at first, but eventually warmed up to the big guy.
  • When Santa asked DaughterGeeding what she wanted for Christmas, she said, “A frog.”  That was news to us.
  • The Travel Channel has a show called “Ghost Adventures” and they recently aired an episode about the abandoned Baker Hotel in hometown.  I watched it and thought it was a bit corny, but my fascination with that hotel still remains.
  • Following the Texas Rangers can be confusing sometimes.  If you see or hear a headline with “Rangers” it could mean the hockey club in NY, or if you see or hear  “Texas” it could mean the university in Austin.  I’ve fallen prey to both many times.
  • Fancy decorative towels may look nice, but they certainly can’t absorb water, which is basically it’s main purpose for existence.
  • When Scott Pelley interviewed Hugh Jackman for “60 Minutes” the reporter thought it was necessary to workout with the actor, and like NFL referee Ed Hochuli, he decided to wear a tight fitting shirt.  But it was a bit surprising to see that Pelley was pretty bulky, with probably more muscle mass that Jackman.
  • Actual job description for the head football coach position at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
  • There’s a new car rental company in Austin geared towards the business traveler that only rents one car in one color for one price, and Audi A4.
  • Cover the middle and you go faster, cover the outside and you go slower – Pic
  • I’ve heard the term “non-denominational” plenty of times, but yesterday for the first time I ran across the word “interdenominational” and despite two-minutes of hard googling, I still don’t know the difference.
  • Inside west Texas’s new 500 million dollar, 15,000-acre radioactive dump

    Non-denominational means you belong to a church that has no affiliation with a denomination, such as the PC(USA), or Anglican Church, etc. It is an independent entity without official connection to larger governing or organizing body.

    Inter-denominational means that you belong to an organization (or local church) in which there are various ministers or staff who do belong to specific denominations even though the organization itself is not affiliated or officially connected.

  5. Interdenominational can also mean the practices of the church are a combination. I served a summer with the aptly, but not creatively named, "A Christian Ministry in the National Parks." They told me they were interdenominational, and that's why they encouraged us (most of the "ministers" are college students who aren't officially clergy) to have liturgy, hymns, and praise music so that any Christian in attendance would find something to be comfortable with.

    The problem is it can feel like a radio station that plays the best mix of Reggae, Country, Gangsta Rap, and Metal. Sure, when your genre comes up you like it, but you're likely to tune out when another is on.

    Hope that helps.
