I’m not sure if I’ve ever hung anything from my rearview mirror, including any graduation tassels. It’s just too much of a distraction.
A full-service gas station in Weatherford that’s been operating over 40 years is about to be sold. I still remember going to the one in Mineral Wells that was owned by my cousin’s in-laws. In a way, I think they could make a comeback if marketed and operated in a manner that appeals to the wealthy or to the hipsters. Who would have thought beverage companies would make profits selling bottled water, or companies that do nothing but pick up dog waste in your own backyard?
I didn’t catch it, but Bill Simmons’ new HBO debuted last night and Twitter had favorable things to say.
Standup desks, that is, desks that make you stand instead of sit, seem to be popular nowadays, but the New York Times reports – someone who stood up while working instead of sitting would burn about 8 or 9 extra calories per hour.
The other day I posted a Benjamin L. Corey post about him becoming more Calvinist in his beliefs and my good friend Brent commented that Corey’s post should probably be titled “I Think I’m Becoming a (Christian Universalist)”. Well, just to follow up, Corey’s latest blog post is – Is Christian Universalism Compatible With Free Will? Justice? Hell?
As I’ve stated before, I don’t post Corey’s stuff (as well as a lot of BoN content) because I endorse or reject it, it just provokes thought and is stuff I think you may or may not find interesting.
As for my friend Brent, I think his doppelganger is the actor that plays Petyr Baelish on ‘Game of Thrones’. When Brent isn’t pastoring, he should be the actor’s stunt double.
I don’t look through my spam comments often, mainly because I receive anywhere from 30 to 600 a day. But I looked through them yesterday and saw one comment that looked like it shouldn’t have gone to the spam folder. It complimented on the blog but wondered if I ever took time to proofread. The answer, no, not really, why start now.
Someone also stated they didn’t like how I used “hey now” the other day because they thought I was trying to copy or step down to the levels of LiberallyLean. In this particular case, I used it because I often hear it on The TICKET and love the way Jeffery Tambor says it. So I’m only stopping down to the levels of The TICKET and Jeffery Tambor.
Uber data suggests that drivers overall in three major U.S. markets — Denver, Detroit, and Houston — earned less than $13.25 an hour after expenses in late 2015, according to calculations based on more than a million trips.
