Last weekend I took my family on a trip to visit my friend Caleb who pastors a church in Port Alice, a village in North Vancouver Island. Along the drive up the coast I had a lot of time to think. My kids slept in the back seats, and my wife focused her eyes on the unexpected conditions of the road ahead as we joked about how dark it was. Then the thought hit me to pray for all my single friends, who drive this road alone or with friends, and don’t experience the unspeakable joy that comes with being (in my case) a husband and father.

I prayed for my friends that God would provide for them a suitable help-meet who would offer to water their camels. That picture stuck with me, and now I can’t get the idea out of my head. I shared my prayer with Caleb, who in turn brought the topic up when we went out for coffee with his friends. After explaining the idea to this group of young married couples, Caleb has taken off on the idea and I’m finding comments in his friends’ Facebook sites and everything. This is going viral!

Almost Weekly Report: that about sums it up

In my next few posts I plan to expand on this idea in the hopes of eventually writing a book out out of it. I will provide links to different resources on marriage and family relationships that I have found especially helpful.

Essentially, I grew tired of combating hassles with my laptop hardware, uncooperative Windows updates, and—the piece de la resistance—Trend Micro Internet Security randomly deciding to cut off one Internet service or another, even when the firewall program wasn’t enabled. I figured that I should still complete this post for the benefit of those who may still be suffering through the Windows XP/Trend Micro Internet Security hassles.

After the 2006 summit a fellow chapter member observed that technical communicators are expanding from the traditional plan/interview/write model into the facilitation and editing of user authored content. That said, I’ve found lots of work in the web development arena, and am excited at being able to harness these skills and abilities in my current job, along with writing and editing.

My eye caught a sign plastered to the middle of the door, at the level of my nose, advising customers that they would not accept any bags with ants in them.I was at first shocked, because in B.C. the correct protocol when returning recyclables is to be sure to rinse them first. Just the other day I went to my friendly neighbourhood Save-On Foods to pick up some milk, eggs, cheese, lunch meat, and several bags of chips: potato, taco, and sun.

My friend Wayne Radford, the self-proclaimed “King of Poco”, put this bug in my ear over lunch one rainy afternoon. The short version is that our online publishing efforts, though wide reaching, are only temporal. In contrast to my post about what happens on the Internet living forever.
