Annual Asseveration

Twenty-seven years ago today, Margaret Bamforth and I vowed to have and to hold, to love and to cherish one another, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, until we are parted by death.   This has not been the easiest year for us to live up to that…

Lazy Web Inquiry

Pasting video over audio (pasting a clipped video track over the extant video without pasting the audio over the extant audio) should be one of the easiest things ever in iMovie; I’d think people would want to do it all the time, and I can’t imagine it’s that hard on the application side (compared with…

All Wedding, All The Time

Just when you thought that I might get back to talking about what makes exegetical research so hard, or about the non-consent to the election of the so-called Buddhist Bishop, or about apologetic statesmen of a compromising kind, I break out yet another wedding-related link. This is a slide montage of images taken by Peter…

One Intensity To Another

The Traveling Adams rolled into Durham late last evening, cramped and weary and malnourished from days on the road, but still very happy about the fantastic wedding weekend and the rich conversations with dear friends and family. Did I say how sweet Si and Laura were? And how marvelous it was to share exhilarated celebration…

Father Of

Josiah and Laura Harris-Adam set off on their honeymoon a couple of hours ago, if they followed their initial schedule. It was such a terrific weekend that it’s hard to say goodbye, to them and also to so many others whose presence supported, encouraged, enlivened, deepened these days. I don’t ant to begin to name…

This Time For Keeps

Yesterday was a walk-through. This afternoon, it all counts.     The rehearsal dinner last night was spectacular — all Margaret’s hard work and planning worked out perfectly, and the caterer hit the ball out of the park, and everyone got along famously. We were on the top of the world, and today will only…

Steve Could Explain

Given his sympathy for Ursine-Americans, I expect that Steve knows another side of this story. The MSM are notoriously biased against large non-human carnivores (even including the inaptly named FOX News).

Sparse Blogging Ahead

We hit town tomorrow, and from there on we’ll tumbling headlong toward the impending nuptials. Today would’ve been a good day for blogging, but our hotel wifi doesn’t reach to our room, and I didn’t feel like camping out in the lobby (as Pippa did). There was an exuberant prayer meeting in the multi-purpose room…

Prospects

I’m itching to write another installment of the exegesis series — I’m up to “what makes research hard?” — but I don’t anticipate having a longish stretch of time in which to develop my handwritten outline into a full-bore (and I’m sure that “bore” is the right term for most readers) discussion of problems in…
