SMOOTH

I don’t care what you think of this president, this is some smooth work in this video. I got goosebumps when the people toward the end are jumping up and down. It’s such a cool visual.  

65% approval ratings? Awesome. 

Seems like there’s a verse I’ve got memorized about leadership acting diminutive toward their status. Matthew 19:30: “But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.”
Word Press doesn’t allow me to post the viewer, so here’s the link: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30892505/vp/31074125#31074125

Of course the verse before it says leave families, brothers and sisters for Jesus and you will be rewarded 100 fold. Whatever the hell that means.

Manduca quinquemaculata

tobacco worm
I took this picture of a tobacco worm last summer.


My neighbor is an urban farmer and keeps all kinds of vegetable plants on her deck. She’s also a vegetarian and teaches environmentalism.

Of course, I thought the worm was beautiful and took several pictures of it. I forwarded the pictures to my neighbor. The next thing I knew she was on her porch burning worms.

Apparently they will ruin the crop given the opportunity.


They sure are beautifully evolved creatures though. Look at those “eyeballs” that decorate its back. And the color camouflages itself well.
