I misspelled the name of our new president! In two previous posts Barack was spelled Barak. My sister-in-law who writes a news column for a local paper caught the mistake and emailed me to quickly correct the spelling before anyone else saw it. The funny thing is in one entry I had it spelled both ways. She tried to excuse my mistake by telling me the Biblical spelling of the name was Barak. (Judges 4 & 5, and Hebrews 11) Now I am mortified that the letters I sent to the White House on the day after the inauguration also had our president's name misspelled. No wonder we have not received any response, not even a form letter!

Wanted to create a new wordle based on the blog. It was quite a while ago I did another one. Also I wanted to report that my husband bought me an ipod. One of my 5th grade teachers said, "Well, it's about time you got one." Still learning how to use it, but it has made walking at the gym much more interesting.
Songs on it include some by Bon Jovi, Josh Kadison, Deana Carter, The Eagles, Mercy Me, Carrie Underwood. And podcasts by Garrison Keillor and Killearn United Methodist Church. I tried to download an audiobook but got all confused with that. Maybe later.
