Links I Liked

Please forgive me for posting yet another set of links to other people's good stuff.  I am in a blog slump.  A creative funk.  Everytime I think about writing I just cannot bring myself to do it.  I think about all seven of you and I decide I just can't subject you to another silly or meaningless post of mine.  Maybe I'll rebound and hit my stride once again (whatever that was).  Until then, here you go...

2014fallfoliageFall Foliage Map
Find out when the peak leaf color is in your neck of the woods!  I'm so happy that we aren't yet to our peak in Oregon.  Here’s a link for things to do in Oregon to enjoy Fall’s glory, including the Oregon Fall Foliage blog, but I’m sure there are similar resources for every state.  This is awesome.

LEGO Minifigures as Cable Holders
Do you know that LEGO minifigures hands are also a perfect holder for your Apple Lightning cable and other types of cables?

Oddest Things You’ll Find on Amazon
… including Unicorn meat and a nickel that costs 25¢ + $4.49 shipping

A few age and perspective posts:

Sight of the old man
Boomer’s Bodies – And Yours
All of the 10,000 people in America who turn 65 each day have wrinkles. Our skin is more flaccid. Our complexion is more mottled. Our equilibrium is more tenuous. And our hair is more scarce. The effect of aging on our appearance and our bearing is universal. No one escapes. Except by death… He intended to make clear that, even if we ignore the dreadfulness of a sinful heart, we will not be able to ignore its witness in the debility of the body.

Parenting as a GenXer
We’re the first generation of parents in the age of iEverything… My generation, it seems, had the last of the truly low-tech childhoods, and now we are among the first of the truly high-tech parents.

What Millennials Really Want From Church
Don’t be put off by the title of this post (as I was at first).  I really appreciated this perspective.

That’s Offensive
I was watching the news as I got ready this morning and, during the span of about 30 minutes, there were FOUR stories that talked about people or groups that had recently been offended by one thing or another.  Now I'm not talking about serious things that go against our spiritual beliefs......we won't go there.  I'm just talking about petty issues that keep people's undergarments all up in a wad.

Made me smile:
