Haiku Friday

The weather is warm
Spring is here in the desert
Why are we still sick?

But don't cheer for March
It's always windy that month
Stirs up allergies

I can write them too!

Now it's time to eat!

(breakfast, that is....)

Great Audio Resources

I can't believe the stuff you can download for free.  One of my favorite sites is Librivox where you can download audio for public domain books being read by people who have simply volunteered their time.  The quality is surprisingly good, too.  Along the religious lines, you can download some great classes at Biblical Training where Bill Mounce (who wrote my favorite beginning Greek text) got together a bunch of his friends (some no-names like Craig Blomberg, John Piper, Ronald Nash, Gerald Bray and Frank Thielman) and posted entire classes for free download.  And on iTunes Elena recently directed me toward iTunes U where you can download whole classes for free from tiny unaccredited colleges like Stanford and MIT.  Back on the religious side I've also downloaded some outstanding things from  I thoroughly enjoyed listening to A.W. Tozer preach, for example.  I guess you probably have to be a big nerd to enjoy this stuff but this world sure is getting a lot more enjoyable for nerds like me.

Elena is sick today, what a bummer.  I hate it when she is sick because I want to hold her and comfort her but then she feels guilty if I get sick and it is just a vicious cycle.  *sigh*
