It’s been years since a woman has given our sermon, but my Sister-In-Law is doing it today!

This speech is pretty good and I've shared it before. Not all cryptocurrency/network projects are selfish and about getting rich. How do we make the world better instead of accepting that things will always get worse? It takes faith, work, sacrifice, and a resolution to not quit.

UK peeps; it may not be obvious to you but guns are within your reach. Yes, there are hoops. You need a club and a relatively 'clean' record. That said you have access to most calibres of rifles and multi-shot shotguns once you've jumped through those hoops. It's made out that you can't get shit apart from a 3 shot 12 guage and even then you need to be a farmer or a clay shooter. Not so. Practical firearms are still alive here. Ammo is EXPENSIVE and it is not promoted but it IS there for you.

One of my buddies had Kurt fly jumpseat yesterday. Trying to think of any of his movies that I don't like...great guy from all accounts!

So apparently Heidi knows her numbers and letters! She always puts our finger on things, letters and numbers included, just to get us to say them. She just walked up to the TV and pointed and called out letters and numbers for like a minute. Mary and I were just amazed!

I have always wondered how some things can be such a good value. Take toilets for instance. You can get a pretty good one for under $300 and you probably won’t have to replace it in your lifetime. What else can you and others use multiple times a day for that long and claim that? One of the most annoying things that builders cut costs on too IMO.

TIL: the original version of the Serenity Prayer was very different, and much stronger! the modern version that everyone knows goes

"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference"

but the original version, as written by Reinhold Niebuhr, is

"Father, give us courage to change what must be altered, serenity to accept what cannot be helped, and the insight to know the one from the other"

three key changes weakened it substantially:

* us -> me
* what *must* be altered -> what i *can* change
* switching the first two clauses, placing the emphasis on serene acceptance rather than reforming courage

Something that someone said about modern society this morning. Rings true.

“The devil's in the details and the details are TLDR.”
