What am I doing here?

I am sitting here in front of the computer with an angry cat in my lap, writing blog entries that I suspect no one but my wife will read! Why? Well, that's a good question. One that I haven't really answered for myself yet. There are other ways I probably should spend my time.

What ways, you may ask?

Well, for starters, I'm looking for a new job. Currently I work in part-time management for a large brown package company that will remain obvious, but nameless. It's got great benefits, great hourly pay, but is only part-time. I took this job when I had another part-time job that I loved. Now, I just have the box job, and need to either find a full-time job or another part-time one. I'd really rather just work one place, so that's one thing I should do. Lots of jobs online. In fact, probably the only other people that will read this are going to post comments of work-at-home job sites, most of which are based on getting other people to sign up for work-at-home job sites. Not quite the old pyramid scheme, but close.

I could study, and work a little more on my master's degree.

I could trim the cat's claws. Yeah, and now the google auto-ads will link to first-aid kits and hospital emergency rooms. No thanks!

I could clean the house, the kitchen, put away laundry. Or any one of a million things that would help my wife out while she pays bills. (By the way, any work-at-home systems that require investment, you'll never get past her!)

I could read my investment advice emails from Motley Fool, and think about what I'd do with money if I had it.

Instead, here I am, beginning a blog of my random thoughts. Eventually, I'll add deep thoughts, and there will always be empty thoughts. If you poke around, you should find a link to other blogs related to my family, another blog I'll write about the history of Doug, and maybe a link or two to other interesting things....we'll see.

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Book: The Gospel Call and True Conversion

A quick note: This book, The Gospel Call and True Conversion, is currently available on Kindle for $4.99. This is the second in a series of 3, and the first, The Gospel’s Power and Message, is available for $2.99.The Gospel Call and True Conversion. The title of this book alone sounds intimidating, and adding that it’s written by one of the heavyweights of American Reformed Christianity, Paul Washer, does not lessen the intimidation factor. Washer is known to be a straightforward preacher—for good or for ill.What did I find in The Gospel call and True Conversion? I found some things to like:1. Paul Washer is passionate for the truth. He wants to know the truth. He wants to proclaim the truth. He wants the truth heard. He wants you to know the truth. This is good. It is good to see someone not try to base theology on popularity or as a response to modern events, but to base it clearly on truth. 2. There is a strong emphasis on the reality that true conversion (from the title) will resu…
