Just some more thoughts on the World Cup - Saturday, June 14th 2014 21:17
Watching World Cup soccer: Italy vs. England. At this moment, with just about ten minutes to go, Italy is leading 2:1. I should be going for England for the simple reason that...
World Cup Soccer, Forgiveness, and the Bee Gees - Friday, June 13th 2014 23:20
I apologize for the poor formatting of this entry. Bravenet has made some serious changes to their set-up, all for the good in the long run, I'm sure. But for the moment, it's...
Two Rivers and a White Path - Tuesday, June 10th 2014 22:39
Tonight's entry has to come from the department of "Chips from a German Workshop," if I may borrow Max Müller's gimmick once more. At the moment I'm deeply involved...
The Rich Man and Lazarus - Friday, June 6th 2014 19:41
Written Thursday evening. Okay, this is how tonight’s entry has come together. I was thinking of the passage treated below concerning "The Rich Man and Lazarus.” My mind...
Josephus and the Pharisees - Sunday, June 1st 2014 15:28
Whoops! The last two days caught me with a little bit of an unhappy surprise. I certainly hope that my colitis, which has been in remission for quite a while, is not making a...
Comments completed - Friday, May 30th 2014 11:59
This is just a note to let you know that I now finished last night's comments on the parable of the dishonest manager. I placed it into the entry where I left off. 
Commencement, Camus, and Corruption - Thursday, May 29th 2014 22:36
Another morning spending an hour-and-half in the dentist's chair; it really drained me today. We will be done eventually, but there still are some more appointments in the...
More on Euclid and the Prodigal Son with a Jewish Perspective - Monday, May 26th 2014 23:55
Non-Euclidean Geometry and the Prodigal SonLast time we grappled with the idea that Euclid’s fifth maxim, the “parallel postulate,” cannot be accepted as self-evidently...
Non-Euclidean Geometry - Sunday, May 25th 2014 21:42
(Started on Saturday.)  Another gorgeous day. I finished the little outside stairway except for a couple of planks that hopefull will make it look nicer. (Pictures only...
Counting the Cost - Friday, May 23rd 2014 22:31
What a great bunch of days we're having! The sun is shining; temperatures are in the seventies -- a good opportunity to have fun and work on outside projects. June is weeding;...
Pyramid Construction and the Iroquois - Tuesday, May 20th 2014 13:02
Yes, you can trust your eyes. Here it is—finally—a new blog entry. The last two weeks have been, let’s just say, different. June and I drove to Boston and back, and...
Excursus: John Wesley in America - Monday, May 5th 2014 15:20
There I was yesterday afternoon, writing a blog entry and making good progress. However, the first volume of John Wesley’s Journal,1 to which I had made brief reference in...
Dinner Invitations, part 2 - Saturday, May 3rd 2014 15:16
As predicted, it turned out to be a rather busy week by our standards. Tuesday's dentist appointment pretty much sapped my energy for the rest of the day. The appointment with...
Dinner Invitations, part 1 - Monday, April 28th 2014 20:38
I'm sure I'm not alone in this feeling, but it seems to me that time is just running through my fingers. I'm not being unproductive, but everything seems to need more time than...
Yet Another Sabbath Healing - Wednesday, April 23rd 2014 23:39
To my amazement, while June and I were on our recent trip, somehow spring managed to wheedle its way into Indiana. Over the two or so weeks of the trip, given the different...
The Curious Case of Cardinal Cajetan - Monday, April 21st 2014 22:43
I trust that everyone had a good Easter, celebrating the fact that we have a risen Savior. We are happy to be home again--at least for a while. Today (Monday) I had a return...
Home from the Wild West - Friday, April 18th 2014 21:14
June and I got home this afternoon. It was a long, good trip. I'm finding that I'm way too tired to get a blog entry together, so here's just a picture of one of our stops along...
Getting out of Dodge! - Wednesday, April 16th 2014 21:30
Dodge City obviously was a very different experience compared to the previous days of seeing the wonders of nature as God has created them. I'm tempted to say something along...
Getting into Dodge! (Kansas, that is.) - Monday, April 14th 2014 1:34
Last night June and I agreed that yesterday's drive had been a little bit too long for my tolerance, so we decided to go a much shorter distance today. I checked on the map if...
Farewell to Colorado - Sunday, April 13th 2014 0:32
Greetings from Lamar, Colorado. Yes, regretfully, though not sadly, we decided that after that lengthy and enjoyable stay in Cortez, we really couldn't rationalize going...
THANK YOU NOTE! - Friday, April 11th 2014 19:23
I just picked up our fixed Dodge Dakota from the dealer. A huge THANK YOU to the anonymous person who picked up the tab on it.  I'm humbled, flabbergasted, and deeply...
From Cortez: All around Colorado Springs - Thursday, April 10th 2014 23:48
As expected, here we are, still in Cortez, Colorado. The manager of the auto shop called this afternoon to reassure us that everything is still going as planned. Actually,...
From Cortez: ISCA and the Lost Son - Wednesday, April 9th 2014 23:07
There are two melodies that have been alternating through my mind today. "Here we are in the Tijuana Jail ..." and "Cool Water." Neither one of them is really appropriate to our...
Stranded in Cortez - Wednesday, April 9th 2014 0:30
So, here we are at the American Holiday Mesa Verda Inn, located in Cortez, Colorado. This trip has been notable in a number of ways. I have been way too tired on some nights...
Heading to ISCA - Thursday, April 3rd 2014 0:22
Here is a problem with an easy solution. Assume that there is a vehicle traveling in a straight line heading  west at 3.5x103cmsec-1 (78mph). If it keeps going at the same...
