Saturday Ramblings 10.9.10

The baseball playoffs have begun, the leaves and acorns are falling, pumpkins are being sold at on every corner. That must mean it’s time for Saturday Ramblings. The baseball playoffs are in full swing (yes, pun intended) with the Cincinnati Reds and some other teams competing for a trip to the World Series. Michael Spencer […]

Saturday Ramblings 10-2-10

Well, well, well. We have had a busy week here at the iMonk ranch. Many of our posts have collected more than 100 comments from you and yours. Several have had more than 200 responses. My, my—you all have been very busy! It’s time to relax, pour a cup of coffee (make mine black, please), […]

Saturday Ramblings 9.25.10

Saturday? It’s Saturday already? Didn’t we just have a Saturday last week? Well what are we waiting for? Are you ready to ramble? And have you ever seen a paragraph where every sentence ends in a question mark? The Apostle Paul preached all night on one occasion, putting Eutychus to sleep. When he woke up, […]

Ah, the leaves are starting to change colors. Fresh apples are in the stores. Jugs of apple cider, too. Football is in full swing. The temperatures are cooling in the evening to where you almost need a sweater. Fall is in the air. Ah-choo! (Excuse me.) And so is the pollen. So grab a Gala […]

Well, we really know how to attract a crowd here at the iMonastery. All we have to do is list our five favorite anything and the commenters flock like hillbillies to a flea dip.

Saturday Ramblings 9.4.10

“Why is it,” I was asked while in England, “that you call it ‘Labor Day,’ but it is a day off?” I don’t know. If it makes you feel better, I’ll be working that day. So, why do you refer to Fridays as POETS day? “Push Off Early, Tomorrow’s Saturday.” I like it. I like […]

I’m back—did you miss me? Thanks to my designated pinch-rambler Adam Palmer for filling in for me last week. Taco Town? Who needs Taco Town when you have Deep Blue Fish ‘N Chips? England was wonderful, and I made a lot of new friends. But they talk funny over there. I was asked if I […]

Saturday Ramblings—8.21.10

MOD NOTE: Thanks to Adam Palmer for doing our rambling for us this week! Jeff has taken leave of the iMonastery this week to visit our English friends across the pond (where they have monasteries that are only slightly older than this one), so it is up to me, Adam Palmer, to ramble today. Shall […]

Well Rambling fans, it’s packing time here at the iMonastery. I am taking flight tomorrow for a week in England. In addition to looking for the best pub food available, I will be speaking at The Turning, a “prayer camp” in Suffolk. If you are going to be near England next week (that would be […]
