My DSL is working again, thanks to an astute technician in our local central office. A couple of my neighbors are complaining of no dial tone this morning, but I never lost my dial tone, just the DSL. Oh well, Bellsouth's problems are no longer my problems. Hallelujah!

One of the e-mail lists I subscribed to last week is the HoB/D, or House of Bishops and Deputies. Their online conversations are quite revealing about our church and its convention. Most participants are centrists, or a little to the left. Every once in a while, an unhappy traditionalist will toss poop in the punchbowl, seemingly just to get reactions from the others. They are just not going to be happy without an authoritarian type of leadership, one who lays down the law and metes out penalties and punishment for non-compliance. Have we always had these malcontents among us?

Ricky called yesterday to confirm the dates when they plan to be here. I've got some housecleaning to do before they come. I still have not heard back from Benji. Summer school must be keeping them very busy. Today is his wife #1's birthday. God bless her wherever she is.

Was I supposed to be answering a specific query? Sorry. We've had like two days off in three weeks, so I've lost track of a lot.
