FRIDAY APRIL 18 MUSINGS

+ I held out for a long time. For years I have been using one of my web pages at ABUNDANCETREK.COM as my blog. I am grateful for 2 Presbyterian Church (USA) staff people for introducing me to the concepts of Web 2.0 and walking me through the creation of a blog at a recent meeting of the Seminary Support Network. They are Dana McMahan and Jonathan Dennis of Creative Services.

+ It is getting unseasonably warm along the Erie Canal today. We may hit 80 degrees F. We have had 4 beautiful days. It was chilly, however, on Monday & Tuesday.

+ I will not muse every day but on days that I do I might update my musings from time to time so you may want to come back here again and see what I have added. I will soon be creating a blogroll for the sidebar but untill then you can find my blogroll at http://www.abundancetrek.com/blog. Scroll down on the column on the left. One of the best, if not the best, Progressive Christian blogs is Shuck & Jive by John Shuck, pastor of a very progressive church in Tennessee. He once served a church up here in the frigid North! Check out "These Are Our Mountains, Too", John's post yesterday on a successful PFLAG organizational meeting for his region. The post includes a video of some figure skating with a powerful song, One World, by Celtic Woman.

+ Manny hit 2 home runs last night at Yankee Stadium leading the World Champion Red Sox to a victory over the Yankees 7-5.

Hey John!

Thanks for the link and for the incredibly kind words. Congrats on the new blog. Although, I did kind of like your cluttered look!
