Oh by the way, folks,
Today we make fun of Malaysia for decreeing that folks who speak Arabic but aren't Muslims can't speak of God. You see, the Arabic word Allah is cognate to the Hebrew word Elohim which is normally translated into English as God. So, in effect, Allah is really just the Arabic word for God. So if you speak Arabic and believe in any sort of magic sky fairy you oughta be permitted to call it Allah.
Well anyhow, yesterday church was the normal crashing bore. Among other things, our choirmaster and organist are leaving us. Serving us as choirmaster and organist are only their side jobs, and they've got new main jobs elsewhere. We're sad to see them go, but happy for their success.
And so now that the remains of my neighbor's fallen tree are gone, I got the front yard mowed just before the EPA got here to declare the place a Tropical Rain Forest Preserve.
The Wondrous Weather Website is predicting that today is gonna get awful hot. I better get out and do my outdoor stuff early.
