    Never heard of it, but read through the sample and there's some interesting stuff in there.

    I really liked the comments towards the end of the sample about how our response that something is...

    Got a few more seams taped, got the stud aligned as best as I could (tricky, given the wall isn't entirely even) and screwed into place. Got a few more bits of trim removed from inside the closet...

    Gotta love the internet, the place where people who need to find something, anything, to be offended by can come together.

    It's a useful tip though. When I attended my friend's daughter's wedding...

    I see the idea of a free market as meaning that if you build a mousetrap that is better than my mousetrap you thrive while I have to improve or die. If my mousetrap is vastly superior to your...

    I heated my work room to 61 degrees yesterday, and turned the heater off at 4pm. At 1130pm it was down to 55 degrees (this is with no heat at all in there, not even heat rising up from the room below...

    I eventually managed to get my door frame removed, and without trashing it which was nice. It's 100-year-old red oak, so I really don't want to ruin it. Then I figured I could botch some fiberglass...

    Guess my day will include more time taking apart a door frame. Part of the frame inside the closet splintered when I took it off, hopefully nothing more will get trashed.

    I now have all the insulation panels cut and fitted into the room I'm working on. It has a small closet, so small it's not much use for anything, so it's coming out. I took the door off and removed...

    It's nothing to do with some prospering more than others - the only way to prevent that would be to make everyone equally miserable. Some say that's the ultimate outcome of socialism, and in many...

    You make some interesting points in your post, but this part rather lets the whole down. You are right in that it is easy to come up with fine-sounding ideas for why we just can't make the Bible...

    Joy of joys, I got to do some more grinding. Thankfully it was a small area, but I can't say I was thrilled when I realised what was needed. Now I'm putting stuff back together ready to fit the last...

    Sure, they don't work for everybody. Meeting before the service on Sunday doesn't work for everybody either, it's just about coming up with something that does work.

    Perhaps, although my point still stands that it's concerning to have enough people to warrant a satellite "church" but apparently nobody wants to do any teaching.

    If there are other pastors, why...
