The Land Between the Wasteland

Just got back from the store for some bicycle parts and gardening parts. Now, maybe I can finally make some real progress! lolololol!

I’ve been fixing up an old road bicycle recently. The outside flat parts of the nuts that held the tires on had been turned into a continuous blur. With these new ones, maybe I can finally get it a bit more than semi-working. This week for our big garden project here, we’ve been installing a rather large drip-tape irrigation system and after one hurdle after another hurdle and so forth – we were about to hook up some part to another and lost the washers as a part was walked across the yard. We found one washer, but not the other, so I had to go get some washers. Now MAYBE we can finally get it a bit more than semi-working, too!

Maybe I’m just “Looking for a reason,” and that’s why it’s all so laughable, or least why I can’t seem to stop laughing.

From Ninin Ga Shinobuden, v.2, p.26.

Wow, and after reading the bible with our group this week, I wonder within myself now… “Why isn’t everyone reading the Bible together?” It’s so incredibly good. This week we read the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, and really, all the hype about it being about gay folk – it’s not about that at all! The wicked folks in the city didn’t necessarily care if it was men or women they got — Lot even offered his daughters to them! The sin of their city wasn’t homosexuality, but forcing others to do things against their will.

In the end though, when we read the Ten Commandments, all of that is impossible anyway!!! It’s impossible to adulterate a thing, person, or relationship. It’s impossible to lie. It’s impossible to steal. It’s impossible to covet. All that “Thou shalt not” business is great! Now you don’t have to worry about getting it on with the pool boy!

Okay, I just got back from the Pomona Hertiage meeting they just had tonight at my church (St. Paul’s Episcopal) and I learned that the Lincoln Park District is a federally registered historic district! Wow. And they had a really cool presentation about the history of Pomona and the preservation efforts that have occurred here.
