What a coincidence.

Something came up in yesterday’s post that a couple of you seemed interested in. It will be a another multi part post, not becasue there’s any suspense involved, but there are actually a couple of different stories interwoven. When I went to refresh my memory, I was struck by the timing, it was a year to the day since the story began.

I’m not meaning to be cryptic, in fact I’ll cut to the chase…this is Belle’s father, and the beagle mentioned in the original post was her mother.

In other news, it seems like I’ve got another dog. I almost had two but the other one (a beagle) wouldn’t come into the yard and just took off. He looks like he’s been on the road for a while and is the skinniest dog I’ve ever seen, hopefully I’ll be able to beef him up a little. He doesn’t have a collar so I’ll be taking him to the vet’s to check for a microchip. More on him later.

I thought this was interesting.

This is not mine, and it’s pretty old (I think it’s from 2002), but it is funny. It also shows what a clever mind with the time for a little research and a good turn of phrase can do. Jim is obviously my hero.

Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a radio personality who dispenses advice to people who call in to her radio show. Recently, she said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination
according to Leviticus 18:22 and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The following is an open letter to Dr. Laura penned by a east coast resident, which was posted on the Internet. It’s funny, as well as informative:

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend
the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them:

When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odour for the Lord – Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbours. They claim the odour is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness – Lev.15:19- 24. The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offence.

Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighbouring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Canadians?

I have a neighbour who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination – Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this?

Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? –Lev.24:10-16. Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God’s word is eternal and unchanging.

Your devoted fan,
Jim

It’s B@rbie time again

I’ve got a Belle update but I’m just too lazy to write it, so here’s a collection of B@rbies I found on the net. These are the more seamy side of the little plastic goody two shoes. If you’re looking to buy these for yourself, they are from the Sex Worker B@rbie© collection.

NaBloMoGoAway post #27

Putting technology to work.

Ever since the interweb became accessible to the masses, and long before blogging became popular, computers have performed a particularly invaluable service to mankind. This clip from a home shopping show illustrates this point very nicely indeed…

How about some 80s Aussie music…

Yes they are singing in English, but don’t worry if you can’t understand the words, none of us can either. In fact I once saw James Reyne (the singer) asked to translate the lyrics from a couple of his songs that were played to him, and he was unable to decipher the words. But still, the imagery is pretty good.

BlaBlaBlaBlah post #22

Bonus Post.

Since I missed a post while I was on the Coast, here’s a little something extra for you. The regularly scheduled drivel will be posted later today, I think it will be Karmyn’s meme.

For those of you with boys – enjoy, for the rest, be thankful…

Update** Melissa (the one in NZ) just made a good point, the link is safe for work.
