Bag of Randomness

  • One time in college I spoke up in class really only to try to get some “participation” points and the professor totally called me out on it in the most polite and professional of ways.  He basically told me that one should never speak up or ask a question unless you can add value.  I think that’s some of the best advice I ever got because I applied it to meetings at work and church settings.
  • I planed on re-staining the fence myself, I’ve got all the materials, but a buddy was able to offer me one of his workers for a day to do the labor for $150, and that’s hard to beat.
  • I also planned on installing the sod in my backyard as well.  I thought I found a really good price for 900 sq feet of St Augustine sod for $310, plus $85 delivery for a total of $395.  But I decided to make one more call and found a deal to get 900 sq feet delivered and installed (tilling, leveling, rolling) for $400.  I’m willing to pay the extra five bucks.  He’s got a referral program, so if any of you need any sod installed just contact me for the info.
  • Yesterday someone noted their strong displeasure at my writing.  I fully admit writing and grammar is not my strong suit, but please consider this is free blog and you get what you pay for.  But I do wonder how many folks don’t understand that when it comes to quotes and punctuation, I’ve adopted the logical punctuation style because it’s more . . . logical.  And since I’m not being graded, I don’t care.  However, I have no excuse when it comes to spelling, sentence structure, passive writing, and other grammar rules.  Man, I always got dinged in school for passive writing.
  • January Jones at age nine looks like a red-necked boy with a mullet.
  • Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson drove through Death Valley in an F-CELL Mercedes and survived only by drinking the car’s water emissions.  YouTube
  • In church it was mentioned that the number one place for South Korean Christians to go on mission trips was to the U.S.
  • There’s been some small talk in the NBA about adding a 4-point line.  That makes me think of those old MTV Rock N’ Jock basketball events where there were spots on the court worth ten points, and if I remember correctly, the backboard would sometimes rise to a higher level for additional points.
  • When I go to bed on Sunday nights I usually look back over the weekend and grade myself as a husband and a father.
  • I’m really fascinated by the company Spritz that has created a technology that makes reading easier and faster.  I wish they had an app that I could just install to read any e-book or online article.  For the Chrome browser, Spreed this comes close.
