no need for a comment. just couldn't help it. We used this the last time we did karaoke at youth group. It was fun, so we do it again this friday. Posted by Hello
Just tried to use my 'hello' program - thats the thing that puts pictures into this blog, but it 'failed to initialize' and tells me I will need to reload it. And I've only used it twice!!! Is that value for money? Actually it's a free program, and was very cool while it lasted.
Just come home from a weekend on Phillip Island with the boys. It's the first time I've been out of Melbourne since Daniela went back to Germany two and a half years ago...
Anyway, me and nine other guys from my church went to a 'Men's Bible Convention' and although there was a lot of older guys there it was actually quite good. 192 salvo blokes from across Victoria, some of whom I knew, some I hadn't seen for years... The good thing is that there is a good solid core of young(ish) guys at my church who want to make a difference in our community, and are inspired to do something different, something new. How do you bring the good news of Jesus to that majority of people out there who need him, but are wary of the church as an institution, and suspicious of organised religion. Ironically, Jesus himself wasn't too thrilled with the religious people of his day (got up their collective noses far enough to be seen as a dangerous threat and deserving of execution...).

Which brings to mind the story of the two cows discussing current World events...
Bessie: Are you worried by all this talk of 'Mad Cow Disease' going around at the moment?'
Buttercup: 'No, no, not at all. You see, I'm a Duck!'

I think I'll go now....

Melbourne Docklands. Milk used to come in bottles, now you get it in cartons. Instead of being curvaceous, milk now has to have hard, square edges. And now, our cows are being pressurised (and pasturised)(that is, standing around in a pasture...) into being more blocky themselves, so the milk will fit better in them cartons. here is one cow who just couldn't stand the stress, and has taken to the trees. Posted by Hello

this is something i jotted down on the back of an old envelope a few years back. recently found it again and thought it would do as 'content' on this here Blog...

This present world is bound by a precise set of physical laws;
Energy is transfered, not lost;
Actions cause reactions;
What goes up, must come down;
bullets fly in straight lines and if you get in the way of any of it, you're gonna get hurt.

This laws keep order. If they couldn't be relied on;
Wheels wouldn't roll, Birds couldn't fly,
You'd miss your morning cuppa 'cos your kettle wouldn't boil;
and there'd be chaos afoot in the world.

Another law gives man free will. I am able to do whatever I like providing I accept the consequences. If I step off a tall building, I fall.
I discover the hardness of concrete, and the frailty of the human body.
Likewise if I fire a gun I must accept the responsibility that the bullet will damage whatever it comes in contact with.
Indeed this may be my intention.

God may want to protect the innocent by bending my bullets around them, but such protection breaks both the physical laws and the laws of free will.

No Physical laws = chaos.
No free will and we become mindless robots.

Therefore, don't blame God if a demon pulls the trigger.

Our responsibility is to use our free will, not for evil, but for niceness...

There ya go. It needs a little work, bit of a Maxwell Smart ending, and the Sovereignity of God needs more of a mention, but it's mostly correct!

this is basically the motto of the Salvation Army, symbolising the Blood of Jesus and the Fire of the Holy Spirit. Something I'm playing with in photoshop... Posted by Hello

yep, it's me and murray Checking out banana graffiti in Dresden in 1999. In old east germany. bananas were a symbol of the decadent west, they were exotic fruit that just weren't available in the worker's paradise. Pity because Murray tells me that not only are they yummy, but full of Potassiumy goodness! Posted by Hello

It's been a long time. Tooo long. Eons. Ages. Civilisations have risen and fallen. Things that were stylish became daggy, then totally uncool, then forgotten, then retro-chic, then forgotten again, and are now new-style trendy! And I have created a new website. Check it out, if you will. You can find it at http://www.freewebs.com/heartheart look especially at the Angels in the Architecture bit. Thats at http://www.freewebs.com/heartheart/aita.html Cheers
