The days, they aren't long enough for our to-do lists. And they're also way too filled with snow and ice. That's all without mentioning the things that have broken since we moved (extra stove, TV, microwave...home ownership is great fun, except when it's not) and the fact that we still don't have a couch for our main living room.
But, enough of all that. Here I am, at my new house, with our new internet service and I do have a few links for you, so let's get to 'em.
Spiritual / Inner Life
- Bill Nye's Reasonable Man - The Central Worldview Clash of the Ham-Nye Debate by Albert Mohler. This debate was kind of big deal here where I live. (We have several friends who work for AIG) I thought Dr. Mohler's take was one of the best recaps.
- 7 Reasons Why Kids MUST Memorize Scripture by Jana Magruder for Kids Ministry 101.
- The Authentic Me - a great post by my friend MacKenzie over at Banter of a Blond Republican Couple.
- 5 Sure Fire Ways to Motivate Your Son to Use P.o.r.n.o.g.r.a.p.h.y by Rick Thomas. (punctuation added in an attempt to deter the spambots) Such an important issue in our time. Complacency is not an option, fellow parents. It's just not.
- Fact Checker: Super Bowl S** Trafficking and Other Myths by Joe Carter. Exaggeration leads to trivialization of a truly horrific evil. Don't fall for the easily written, but ultimately trivializing, headlines.
- Great Lakes Ice Cover Spreading Rapidly by Mark Toregrossa. But, I thought "global warming' (yes, I use quotation marks advisedly) meant this would "never" happen again? Tell that to Lake Erie (94% ice cover!).
- Atlantic: We May Run Out of Winter For the Winter Olympics - fact checking by Ed Morrissey at Hot Air. Turns out, not so much, if the IOC would choose actual cold weather venues. I'll admit: I had no idea where Sochi was in Russia until I looked it up on a map. Kind of makes you wonder if the IOC is corrupt. *cough*
- Hermione Should Have Married Harry, Rowling Admits. I KNEW IT. Ron Weasley should have died in some noble, sacrificial way for his friends, in order to redeem his character. (He's primarily annoying, and only around to swear and use British slang. Ugh. GO AWAY WEASLEYS. Not that I care. Much.)Just goes to show you that an author can get too attached to the way she first envisioned a story, instead of letting the characters dictate their own fates.
- 31 Loves Stories in 140 Characters or Less from Buzzfeed. (language and content warning for site). I love #3 the best.
- Posts like this one really take me back: 18 Kids Movies from the '90s You've Probably Forgotten About also from Buzzfeed. I've seen several of these more than once, how 'bout you?
