Good Reading
one of my favorite blogs: good thoughts on feminism

An Excellent Sermon
Matt's been on a roll of good preaching. This week was particularly excellent. More and more he lays the scriptures bare.

A: The blue ones are good and the white ones are bad and the blue ones are going to win.
Matt: No they're not. The blue ones are not good.
A: But I don't like white. I like blue. The blue ones are good and the white ones are bad.
Matt: You can like the blue, but they're not good.
A: They are good. I like them.
Matt: Ok

stale whole wheat cinnamon buns shredded(from Thursday-left them open over the heater, stupidly, and they dried up), custard made of three eggs, 1/2 cup half and half, 1/2 cup whole mild, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 1/2 cup sour cream
baked at 350 until all puffy and golden

Vulgar but Funny
Not going to link it, because that would make it easier for you to go there and I don't want to encourage that sort of thing, but if you do go to Mad Priest, he makes fun of Matt (Matt Kennedy sees image of Jesus in Da Vinci painting). Mad Priest seems to be unhappy about Matt calling his site 'vile' on Stand Firm, you'd have to scroll down further. Mad Priest is feeling insecure. Heh.

I keep having trouble with my slow cooker - it cooks meat fine but veg, beans etc. seem not to cook through, at least not on the low setting. I guess I should try turning it up to high. Your ideas sound great.

Loved the stock recipe too.
