Saturday Ramblings 4.2.11

Your Rambler has returned from his trip to the desert with his allergies intact. I had a great time getting to meet with some iMonks including Richard and his wife and family (hope you had a good birthday, Gail), and Jim from the Great White North who had maybe the coolest Cincinnati Reds hat I’ve […]

Saturday Ramblings 3.26.11

Greetings from the desert edition of Saturday Ramblings. Your rambler is in the Phoenix area taking in some Spring Training baseball and In N Out burgers. Yes, life can get better than this, but not without involving legal action. I brought my allergies with me to the desert and was hoping to leave them here, […]

Saturday Ramblings 3.19.11

Today will be a bit of a different sort of Saturday Ramblings. For one, once I eliminated all of the Rob Bell Is A Universalist stories, there really wasn’t much to report on. But we have some bigger things to discuss this week. Are you ready to ramble? I want to ask you to spend […]

Saturday Ramblings 3.12.11

Take me out to the ballgame. That is, if the ballgame is in the Phoenix area over the weekend of March 25. Your rambler will be in the Phoenix area that weekend for a little Spring Training action. And an In N Out or two. Should you be so inclined to get together for lunch […]

Saturday Ramblings 3.5.11

Pondering the imponderables today. Such as, why do we drive on parkways, but park on driveways? What’s with the “interstate” highways in Hawaii? If a cow laughs really hard, will milk come out of her nose? And, most imponderable of all, why are the letters “s” and “l” rubbing off of my laptop’s keyboard, but […]

Saturday Ramblings 2.26.11

They’re selling independence, actors in the White House, acid indigestion, mortgage on my life, mortgage on my life. Ramble tamble. Ramble tamble. CCR says they’re ready. Are you ready to ramble? Then let’s do it. I would really like you to stop and listen to the message by Rod Rosenbladt—“Christianity In Five Verses.” This is […]

Saturday Ramblings 2.12.11

So, have you finished all of your leftover Superb Owl snacks yet? Have you taken down your Superb Owl decorations? Had enough football? Had enough of us referring to the Big Game as the Superb Owl? Well, sports fans, here is some good news: Pitchers and catchers report in four days to Spring Training. You […]

Saturday Ramblings 2.5.11

Happy Saturday! Oh we are all very happy here at the southwest branch of the iMonastery. Stuck inside after fourteen inches of snow makes us all happy. I’ve got a lot of writing and editing to do, so I won’t lack for something to keep me busy. And I hear there’s some sporting event on […]

Saturday Ramblings 1.29.11

Where did the week go? Seems like just yesterday it was Saturday. I guess they come most every week, huh? Around here we use Saturdays as a general tidying-up day. This week I’ve cleaning up my brains, the same ones that got battered around after a couple of essays I posted. Y’all are a tough […]

Saturday Ramblings 1.22.11

Good morning ladies and gentlemen and all the ships at sea. Flash—this just in. Today is Saturday, the day we generally reserve here at the iMonastery for cleaning up the piles that have accumulated throughout the week. We like to have a tidy home for the iMonks and all who visit here. So if you […]
