This blog is not about those machines used to change mechanical energy into electrical energy. It’s about software that creates software. Software to play around and have fun with.

Unusual Churches

Unusual Churches is about believing in a universal force that helps to guide us in our everyday lives. Many people choose to seek it in many different ways. How we choose to find it is up to the individual. Unusual Churches is also about the weird, wacky and funny churches one can find on the internet.

There are definitely some pretty diverse approaches to spiritual matters noted at Unusual Churches.

Merry Christmas

What? It is August 25th not December 25th.
Well, if you work in a National Park you are probably celebrating Christmas today in a tradition that begain in the 1930s1 in Yellowstone and has since spread to most if not all of the National Parks.
And a special Merry Christmas to the staff of Signal Mountain Lodge in Grand Teton National Park who, while celebrating this Christmas Day, continue to mourn the loss of their friend and companion Quiet Dave.
NB: On a more mundane level today is the 88th anniversary of the founding of the National Park Service.
1 A write up that I recently saw on the wall of a National Park lodge said this tradition begain in Yellowstone in the summer of 1933 though this reference is much less specific.

Save Your Blood

Keep your knives sharp and use them correctly:

Aside from pots and pans, knives are the most important tools in a kitchen in which any cooking beyond heating canned soups is being done. Treat them with care and use them correctly, and there’s no need to ever spill your own blood upon the counter and thus be forced into a phase of light blogging!
