It has been quite a while since last I posted something. I have been a little busy and have spent some time trying to get used to my new job and new schedule. I enjoy writing late at night and my new position doesn’t really offer me the opportunity to stay up writing until one or two in the morning, but as I get used to my new job I may be more inclined to staying up late. Or I can just get used to writing earlier in the evening.
As I’ve stated already I have a new job. I also have a new camera, a Nikon D80. I liked my friend’s D300 so much I had to have a new camera. A lot of the nice pics that I have posted here have been taken with Mario’s D300. It is my first digital camera as I have been a film purist for many years. I still think my TLR Rolleiflex is better than most cameras available today. Look for new pics!
I have three Bibles at Abba Bible Designs in Mexico for rebinding. If you are not familiar with Abba, take a look at some of their work at Mark Bertrand’s blog, here, here, here, and here. From these articles and pictures, I am waiting like a kid at Christmas for my Bibles to arrive. I am pretty sure they are done binding them, now I just have to wait for the transit time. In case you are curious in what is being rebound I sent my PSR ESV, USB GNT 4th Edition with Dictionary and a NASB LArge Print Thinline. All of these Bibles started with a sewn binding. They are all being done in calfskin. The ESV will be in red, the GNT in burgundy and the NASB will be in a dark brown… at least thats what I had requested. Look for a review and pics at Mark Bertrand’s Bible Design Blog. As soon as I get them in, of course.
The “Is Smoking A Sin?” entry doesn’t seem to die, sadly the comments have been a lot of the same emotionality without any real substance.
I have two new coffees in. One is a Harar from Ethiopia and the other is Mokha Mattari from Yemen. I will be reviewing them soon and I also plan to start a series on home roasting coffee.
I do have several ideas for entries and as soon as I have a little more time I will be posting more. I need to finish my work on Romans 9 as well as my intended work on the atonement.
Until next time, may God be merciful upon us all.
I want to thank those who have emailed me to ask how I was doing! Thank you for your concern.
