We are able to save ourselves. That’s what Senator Warnock of Georgia posted on Easter morning to Facebook and Twitter. Even after those posts were deleted – no clarification, no retraction, just disappearing posts – I continued to see screenshots of both for several days as people reacted online. During his campaign, Warnock reminded us many times that he served as pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, filling the pulpit of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. He may be strong on civil rights but somewhat heretical on theology.
Not a ketchup shortage as much as a ketchup packet shortage. With the increase in drive through and take out there has been high demand for single serve condiment packets. Even restaurants with dine-in service are advised not to have ketchup and mustard bottles, or salt and pepper shakers, on the tables. My very European minded wife would just dip her fries in mayonnaise but this is American and the situation will be that easily resolved for most people. (Europeans were unaffected by the toilet paper shortage as well but that’s a different post for a different day. Also someone else will have to write it.)
Not what it looks like. It looks like an abandoned NASA capsule from the early days of the space program. It is really the mixer from a cement truck that crashed years ago and left behind when they towed the truck as it contains several yards of hardened concrete. It has been painted and repainted by locals over the years but since 2011 has identified as the space capsule of Wiganon, Oklahoma. You can read more here.
Seems legit but I have not tried this myself. I think this is more likely to work than charging your iPhone battery by microwaving for 30 seconds.
I took this pic at a city park/greenway trail in downtown Gainesville, GA. Walking paths and hiking trails are some of my favorite things about this time of year. By the middle of summer you have to make sure to hit them early in the morning before the temp and humidity reach the upper 90’s.
iMonk Radio Podcast #130 was posted on Thursday morning. Apologies again for missing last week; I didn’t even realize that happened. This is a good episode and an excellent entry point for anyone wondering what iMonk is all about.
He is Risen, an Easter Poem was published on Sunday morning and is a follow-up to the Good Friday poem I wrote a few years ago.
