Michigan it is for Black Friday!

Had an appointment with an Independent Neurologist. Do any Neurologists have any type of personality? Wow he shows no emotion, no change in pitch and says 'um' endlessly!
We are headed for a trip to Michigan to see the Peterborough Pete's play Plymouth Whaler's Friday, Saginaw Spirit on Saturday and Windsor Spitfires on Sunday!  I have suggested a "little" drive to Amish Michigan! Not sure if Pete will go for it or not! Sure hope so!

I have a FAE done by an Independent Kinesiologist on Friday and been having nothing but increased back pain and left hip pain since trying to do some of his tasks. I knew I should have refused! Too late now!

Tomorrow is the daily trip through Amish Lindsay Countryside!

November already!?!?!?

While we were headed to my weekly appointment in Lindsay we did the usual drive past the Amish School. The kids (I would tend to say 30ish) were out frolicking in the lovely November sun. Such a lovely day and so nice to see kids making their own fun at recess and not on cell phones. It seems that in today's society whenever you see keds there heads are tipped down and they are running into you if YOU are not paying attention to THEM!

Why has life become so complicated? It is funny how we can say that it must be hard to live without electricity etc etc but all the while we make it more and more difficult for ourselves to live without it. We apparently simplify our lives by getting a cell phone, but did we simplify it or make it more complex?
What do you think?

A book review of Mored Lost Than Found

More Lost Than Found by Jared Herd
This is a book that is trying to get the "adolescent" group of today to restore their faith in the Church and God as a whole.
It is an easy to read book and for someone who is questioning their faith it is a great read. It makes one question themselves about the path they have been on, the path they want to be on and the path that they should be on in a faith based world.
The book would be especially useful for Pastors/Ministers etc to use to work with the youth of the church. It would make a good book to use for a general discussion in a larger setting to get people to open up and express their thoughts and views and see other's as well.
It open's your eyes to what the Church is, what it can be and how it can be if you allow ytourself to be accepted into it or back into it!
