My Father’s Pedestal

Last weekend, I decided to visit my uncle’s church for Men’s Bible Study.  It had been a few months since I had seen anyone in my father’s family, so I figured it was about time I make an appearance.  However, I am always a bit ambivalent about attending this Bible Study.  It feels awkward. The first time I attended this… Read more →


Adsense Mishap

In case you didn’t know, I use Google Adsense to help me to cover expenses for this site.  However, I really didn’t pay much attention to the kind of ads that were being displayed on this site until tonight when I realized that I had been inadvertently promoting the Presidential campaign of Mitt Romney.  As you are well aware, Mitt… Read more →
