New Shirt

My wife got me a shirt:

My kids were familiar with two of the three items. I need to introduce them to the 5.25″ floppy disk. I do have a bunch of them – they go with the Commodore 64. I’ll have to pull all that stuff out of storage.

We still use the VCR – there’s no way to watch Space Ghost Cartoon Planet other than the shows I recorded back in college. And most of our vehicles have cassette decks – the kids have listened to Evie and Keith Green albums in their original formats.

Ecclesiastes 1:11

Let’s Get Ready to

Here are a few images of Michael Buffer plus something other than boxing.

You may not know the name Michael Buffer (I didn’t either, before I started this), but you probably would recognize him. He’s the “Let’s get ready to rrrrumble” boxing announcer guy. And if you’re not a fan of boxing, you may have seen him in a car insurance commercial.

The photo is rare because I made it up – pieced it together from other photos. I just wanted to make that pun.

And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.

Balm shelter.

There will be a shelter to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and protection from the storm and the rain.

2 Samuel 22:35

Straw Poll

I’ve heard of people taking straw polls before, and with the election year starting soon – or having already started, depending on your location – there will be more talk of straw polls.

So I thought I’d hold my own straw poll.

Which is your favorite type of straw:

A. Normal
B. Bendy
C. Curly
D. Scoop

Cast your vote in the comments section.

So the taskmasters of the people and their foremen went out and spoke to the people, saying, “Thus says Pharaoh, ‘I am not going to give you any straw.’ “
