friday evening….

Wow, today was really hectic at work ! The project from Hell reared it’s head again; I think it went out the door this afternoon though. Hope so anyway. Even without that, I would have been quite busy today. We are trying out a new transcribing device. Rather than record onto cassettes, we are trying out a digital recorder. It holds more than cassettes, and the playback is via software rather than a cassette player. Pretty cool, and the sound is much better !

Here are links to a couple of writing / social networking sites that I joined recently. Both sites are generally of better quality than MysSpace or FaceBook, my opinion anyway.

Seven Years in the Making, Draft ELCA Statement on Sexuality Punts | Christianity Today | A Magazine of Evangelical Conviction

A long-awaited draft statement by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America shies from taking a position on homosexuality, saying the church has yet to reach consensus on the matter.

I don’t know what this consensus nonsense is ! Once a sin, always a sin; the ELCA is just to lame to take a strong stand. They would rather pander to our deranged culture. I should jump ship and become a Catholic.

Well, Today I started working the plan that the Psych guy gave me for loosing weight. I didn’t quite make the 2 x 20 minute walks, rather I did 2 x 30 minutes. I should be able to get 40 minutes by tweaking the route a little bit. I did really well with the calories though; I consumed just under 1,700 calories today and my target is 2,400 ! That really wasn’t too difficult, but I know I will have to maintain vigilance. Anyway, I am done eating today, so I did good. I gotta say though: I am tired ! I bet I sleep well tonight.
