A warm welcome

by Richard on July 25, 2004

We’ve been warmly welcomed here in Louisville. The old cliche that “there are no strangers in the church - only friends you’ve not met yet” is being proven once again. After the prayer breakfast this morning (a bit of a misnomer for me, since I discovered I just wasn’t capable of doing breakfast) we went with our hosts Harold & Trudy to Louisville Zoo, and a good time was had by all. A wide variety of God’s handiwork was on hand. And there were some interesting exhibits too! Ithink the temperature hit 90F this afternoon, which is a bit on the warm side for me but I’m not complaining.

Had a new culinery experience in a restaurant where you pay a fixed price on the way in, but can then eat all you can fit on your plate. Great variety and pretty good quality I thought, but I couldn’t help but feel that this style of catering must encourage over-indulgence. I mean, the more you eat, the better value it is, right? But I musn’t sound snooty - it was a thoroughly enjoyable meal.

I’ve just come from a conversation about “pet peeves” only to be confronted by one of mine — SPAM. Checked my email for the first time since we came away. 515 messages in my inbox. That is not good, not good at all. I rely on my desktop to do the spam filtering, checking over the web means I get it all. I can’t possibly look through all that tonight, so if you’ve sent me something in the last day or two please bear with me.

Oh oh Richard.
I really hope that my nasty spammer isn’t targeting you.
If he is, we’ll see about getting him stopped or at least slowed down together.
I won’t tolerate others being annoyed or harassed because they allow me to be part of their blogging experience. It’s like when you got all the spam from Arizona…

I don’t know, you can take the man out of Yorkshire, but you can’t take yorkshire out of the man!

So you’re not familiar with the American custom of “smorgasboard” or “buffet” dining, eh Richard? Quite common here, really. And yes, it does tend to encourage overindulgence. It makes you feel like you have to eat your money’s worth…

Best content I ever seen. Huge amounts of live feeds, high payouts. Realy cool.
