Saturday Ramblings, February 21, 2015

Hello, imonks, and welcome to the weekend.  Ready to ramble? You may have noticed that Lent began this week.  For you Baptists, here’s an explanatory article.  So then, Wednesday was Ash Wednesday (Baptists, see here), and at least one Church was ready with drive-thru service.  Clergy at Advent Evangelical Lutheran Church in Upper Arlington, Ohio, […]

Happy Valentines Day, imonks.  Grab your significant other, and hop in the Rambler. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, there is this report: People who use emojis have sex more often. A lot more often, actually. In unrelated news, I have now learned to how to insert emojis into blog posts. Which state is the […]

Hello imonks, and welcome to the weekend.  Up for some rambling? It seemed to rain a lot early this week in much of the country, but that was really just the tears of grown men staring at seven months of painful FWS (Football Withdrawal Syndrome). Besides the tears, other symptoms include: Compulsively checking the DVR to see […]

First, some sporting news.  The Superb Owl is set: The Seattle Seahawks will attempt to defend their crown from the New England Patriots.  The Patriots had a little controversy after their blow-out over the Colts: Deflate-gate (hey look, a”gate” controversy that actually rhymes!) The NFL is looking into […]

Hello, imonks, and welcome to the weekend.  Ready to ramble? Make the Bible the State Book?  A bill in Mississippi (expected to pass) would do just that.  The article notes, “Lawmakers say designating the Bible as the state book would be completely symbolic and nobody would be required to read it.” So, basically it would […]

Hello, imonks, and welcome to the weekend.  Let’s do some rambling! NFL wisdom:  “It’s like you look at a girl who looks like you, and you find out it’s your cousin, so you can’t go on a date with her even though you’d like to, because she looks like you. But then you see her […]

Welcome to the weekend, imonkers.  Actually, welcome to the New Year.  Just in case you weren’t feeling old enough, remind yourself that we are now as close to 2040 as we are to 1990. And by the way, since it’s 2015, aren’t we all supposed to start dressing like this now? How are your New […]

Saturday Ramblings: Dec. 27, 2014

Saturday Ramblings, December 27, 2014 Good morning, iMonks. We have dug out of the piles of wrapping paper, boxes and bows, cleaned up the toys strewn all over the floor, emptied the dishwasher for what seems like the hundredth time, put out the trash, and are now getting ready to do some holiday rambling. Some […]
