Where’s Chuck? Sunday 8.2.15

I’m on vacation, but I planned ahead. Presuming that we stay on track, we’ll be seeing a lot of cool things–here’s what I hope to see today.

We finish up events at the State Games of America around mid-day then we’re heading northwest, ahead of our friends, to Mitchell, South Dakota where we’ll be camping over at Lake Mitchell and making a quick visit to The Corn Palace.  Because you can’t go to eastern South Dakota and not see a building covered with murals made from corn and other regionally grown grains.  They make new murals every year.

Where’s Chuck? Friday 7.31.15

I’m on vacation, but I planned ahead. Presuming that we stay on track, we’ll be seeing a lot of cool things–here’s what I hope to see today.

Most of our time is going to be spent here…

But the Nebraska state capital, otherwise known as “the penis of the plains” should be worth a quick visit….

And they’ve got this sunken gardens thing that should be good for an hour or so…

But if you know anything good to do in Lincoln, I’ve got some time, let me know in the comments section…..

Wednesday Words 7/29: The Bible on Dog Vomit

churchsignYes, my religious views have been well documented across the whirled why’d web, so you’re a little surprised to see me quoting “the good book” but there’s a lot of great stuff in there, some of it resoundingly, wonderfully evocative. Like this.

Proverbs 26:11:  As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.
