Network+ certification test

In less than 24 hours, I will either be CompTIA Network+ certified or I will not. I ask for your prayers, as tests always make me nervous.

I take the test tomorrow at 9am in Winchester.

Inspiring Quote for January 21st, 2014

    Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what. If you don't listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won't tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them all of it has always been big stuff.

It's asthma season, I guess

Breathing is difficult today.  Not sure why, but I needed my inhaler (which I normally use once a month or so) this morning, and I feel like I may need it again.

I'm just a big softie...

So, I have read the Chronicles of Narnia once, listened to the audiobooks twice, and am on the home stretch of the Focus on the Family's Radio Dramas The Chronicles of Narnia.  I thoroughly enjoyed the books and the radio theater production is astounding.  I get sucked into the story every time, even though I know what will happen in the end.  The bad guys are always bad and I dislike them.  The good guys are always good and I cheer them on (except when they are being naughty).

I will certainly be reading them again in the future, but I do have to say that I'm really enjoying the concept of the radio theater.  I need to get more of these!

On the road to Greensboro

Today I go down to Greensboro, NC with the Cheese Lords. We have a concert Saturday night and Mass to sing at on Sunday morning.

The concert on Saturday night is at 7:30 PM, and is at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church, 2205 W Market St, Greensboro, NC 27403.  The Mass on Sunday is at 1 PM in the same church.

If you have friends in that area who are interested in choral music, or who need to be introduced to this kind of music, or who like groups with totally awesome names, let them know we will be there!

Grammatical thing...

"A former aerospace executive who slapped a crying toddler on an airplane and used a racial slur against the child, who is black, received an eight-month prison sentence on Monday for an incident his attorney blamed on his alcoholism."

Who is black?

In real life, the child is black.  Grammatically, isn't the former executive black?

Suspicious Cheese Lords in concert this evening

1601 Pleasant Plains Rd, Annapolis, MD
This is the address.

St. Margaret's Episcopal Vhurch
This is the name of the church.

Tonight, 7:30 PM
This is the time.

If you're at this place at this time, then you will hear the Suspicious Cheese Lords sing a Christmas concert; our featured work is O Admirabile Commercium by two separate composers. You'll also hear other Christmas works by various composers, many of which are little known in the choral world.

See you this evening!

Patsy couldn't quite figure out if she wanted to go up or down...

So she went straight out.
