Things that happen to me.

zucchini slice

This afternoon I made some zucchini slice for dinner with my family. It was delicious

I ended up putting three cups of grated zucchini and a full cup of corn, which probably explains why it was so squishy. But still good to eat.


You have been invited into a special relationship with your godchild, a relationship of support and encouragement. Are you ready to accept the responsibilities this relationship brings?

“We are.”

Will you encourage your godchild, support your godchild’s parents, and give assistance as you are able, that Maia will grow in faith, hope, and love?

“With God’s help, we will.”

(nine o’clock service, Wesley Uniting Church, Forrest)

“What defines the Christian community is not primarily ideology, or common feeling, or polity, or even agreement on points of theology and ethics; but engagement with God.”
(Working Group on Doctrine, the Uniting Church in Australia)

one of the non-enumerated rights

“Personal security may, in fact, be the most important human right. Without it the others mean little. People aren’t free if they have to hide in their homes from death squads and car bombs.”
(Michael Totten, on counter-terrorism as humanitarian work)

quote of the week

“You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.”
(Winston Churchill)
