Father Time, Spurgeon, and Life or, Another Way to View Life and the Future

Monday¬†on one of our local sports talk radio stations, The Sports Animal, a guest remarked, "Father Time is undefeated." Pundits often talk about the future of older athletes once a given season ends. Payton Manning served as the illustration for the talk show guest. How an athlete leaves his or her sport depends.

Common In/Equality In Selma or, A Seat at the Diner But No Burger

All human beings may be created equal. Not all people experience equality. Selma reminds us that our not too distant past is littered with dubious illustrations of this common reality. (more…)

Friday Photo – Introducing Oikoshandmade

I want to be creative. I try to be creative. But alas, most of the time the best I can do is enjoy those who are and celebrate their gifts to us.

Our two girls inherited their mother’s creativity. And, that is a good thing. Our oldest, Kimberly, has taken to crocheting like a duck to water. Since Cohen was born she has found herself buying yarn and making hats, shoes, and more for him. That branched out to items for we who are a wee bit bigger.

Last month she launched a website, Oikoshandmade, telling the story of her family – Craig and Cohen. She also has found that her handmade items are quite popular. She opened up a “shop” over at Big Cartel. Obviously we are proud of her. So, if you have a little one – your own or a grandson – click over, check things out and get your order in. Or, you may seem something that would “fit” you.

Right now she has a contest going on. There is still time to enter and win.

Enjoy. We do!
