Random Thoughts 5/21/13

  • Thoughts and prayers go to Moore, Oklahoma, after the terrible tornado they endured yesterday. 
  • I have a dear friend that used to live and minister in the area hit by the tornado.  My heart breaks for all the people he knew and ministered to that are now affected by this disaster.
  • Kansas basketball keeps getting good news.  After landing Andrew Wiggins, now they'll have an immediately-eligible graduated senior transfer from Memphis to use his last year of eligibility.  Tarik Black is a strong, 6-9 forward that can contribute during his one year as a Jayhawk.  Here's the breakdown on Black.
  • My wife has recently been baking cakes professionally, almost on a daily basis.  Cakes are great but they don't represent any kind of temptation to me.  But now she has added sugar cookies to her repertoire.  Uh, oh.
  • For those keeping score at home, there has been no evidence of global-warming for 15 years (in fact we've had record-setting winters across the globe recently).  I would argue that there is no evidence for man-made global warming at all.  So stop it already; your pick-up truck does NOT cause tornadoes.  
  • In the 1970's they argued that global-cooling was causing tornado outbreaks.
  • Speaking of trucks, I've been delighted to use my Nissan Frontier when I can.  I see now that the short bed (a little under five feet with the tail gate closed) is a bit of limitation but I still love it.  I haven't moved the proverbial refrigerator yet but we've moved quite a bit of lawn and garden paraphernalia.
