Some time ago, I got a copy of the European version of the quasi-autobiography (actually an extended interview) of Mr. Hewson aka Bono, done by the noted music journalist from Paris Michka Assayas, a long time friend of Bono’s. The book came out originally in 2005 on both sides of the pond, and has been a best seller, for obvious reasons. It’s candid, revealing, anecdotal, off the cuff, and often quite a serious discussion of everything imaginable, including Bono’s Christian… Read more

In some eyes, Pixar can do no wrong, and the reviews for Onward are mostly glowing. I have to say, this particular film is not in the same class as Up and some of the other genuine Pixar classics, and as per usual, things start with a short subject— this one involving the baby daughter of the Simpsons. It was o.k. but not my cup of tea. The basic plot line of this movie is young elves go on a… Read more

I must admit I am a sucker for good sports movies, but frankly there aren’t that many good basketball movies that actually involve good acting as well as good action, though Hoosiers is an exception to this rule. Ben Afleck’s The Way Back is an exception. Over time, Ben Afleck has become a good actor, though of course we could list some sad or bad movies he has been in.

Here below, with kind permission from this website (https://www.history-a2z.com/the-funniest-headstones-you-will-ever-see-part2/60/?xcmg=1) are some thing you really shouldn’t put on your tombstone. But first a story. So we were in Silverton Colorado visiting the cowboy graveyard and came across this inscription on a tombstone— ‘Here lies the body of Lester Moore/ Shot in the back with a 44/ No Les, No Moore’. No, this is not an April Fool’s joke, those tombstones are real… even if beneath them are a bunch of April… Read more

This particular house was originally in New Jersey, but Mrs. Alice Walton bought it and moved it piece by piece to the Crystal Springs Art Museum near Bentonville, Ark. where she and the other Waltons hail from (i.e. the Walmart folks). Read more

BEN: We are called to love self-sacrificially, as Christ loved. That seems a very high standard indeed which we can only approximate at times. But it does make clear that Christ expects a lot of us. ‘To whom more is given….’. I have grown tired of the mistranslation of the famous verse in Philippians which actually reads ‘I am able…… all things in Him who strengthens me’. It seems clearly, in light of Paul just saying he has learned contentment… Read more
