Random Thoughts

Here I sit, knowing a post is past due, but not knowing what to write. I just got home from a 11 hour day at church. It was not bad, it did not seem long, it was pretty good, busy, but good. I have chapel for the day school in the morning.

I will be talking about "Jesus Loves Me". We will be singing four different versions of the song. My pal Ingrid will be doing the readings for me so it is not just a one man show.

I also have a handyman coming to the house tomorrow. He will be putting up gutters on the addition, building a gate and installing some screen doors. I could do some of the work myself, but when do I have time?

I am watching the Angel game right now as I type. My team is not doing too well this year. They have been bit by the injury bug and they just can't hit when the pitching is good and can't pitch when the hitting is good. I will live and die with my boys, but it would be a better summer if they could string together some wins.

I got an iPod a few weeks back and I have been slowly converting all my CDs to digital. I am about 90% done and let me tell you, I have been listening to some music that I have forgot about. I also realized that many of the CDs I listened to a few years back, did not age well. I have just put some away, never to be heard again. Some things that were cool back in the day are just not even close to cool now.

I went to an Arby's restaurant today with some of Jill's students. Jill gives raffle tickets out for doing good things in class and every other week she raffles off lunch with Mr. Moorman. So we walk into the Arby's to get some yummy roast beef and potato cakes and I notice that the place has "earned" a grade of "C" from the health department. There it was in Red in the window. NOT GOOD!! You have to get between a 70% and 79% for that grade. Anything lower would get the place shut down. I have only seen one other "C" and that was in downtown LA when I was on jury duty back in '97. I still feel fine and I did not hear that any kids went home sick so I guess we dodged a bullet.

I had a great weekend. I was on duty to preach all the Sunday services and it went well. I showed a Goofy cartoon to start the message. I was preaching about road rage and I used the cartoon called "Motor Madness". It stars Goofy in a dual role as Mr. Walker- pedestrian and Mr. Wheeler- driver. If you haven't seen it you can find it in the extras section of "A Goofy Movie" DVD or in the Goofy box set. We also had some out of town company. Andrew one of Ingrid's friends from High School stayed with us. Ingrid's sister Sarah B. was with us as well and our good friend Dr. Ben. We all went to Jill's sisters house for a BBQ and to play with the nieces.

Jill and I also spent some time in Burbank at David and Heather's house on Saturday. The men built a water feature in the back yard and did some other work in the yard. The women watched the kids and made the men food. I know, a bit of gender stereotyping going on but that is just how it worked out. We listened to some good tunes and had some male bonding time in the back yard.

Well enough random thoughts from Seth for today.....talk to you later.

TEAM COMMENT from your pals, Ingrid and Sarah B!

We heart your new post. For a randomly thoughtless man, you sure post a great update!

Thank you for being our family and for letting us stay at your house anytime we want and for preaching on Sunday and for and feeding us oh-so-good food.

By the way, go Argonauts! We love the HOT yearbook editor for Garden Grove's 1987 school year! Quick! What are the team colours/mascot for the Croatian national soccer team?

With love from your number one fans:

Just an FYI for the food grade thing - I have dealt with the health department several times in my experience with restaurant management and for each grade you are allowed up to six infractions. So a C rating is between 12 and 17 infractions they found! I am glad you did not get sick!

Thanks for the info. It is safe to say I will not be going to that Arby's again.

Blogger are you still alive?

So, I've been kicking around the idea of long form blogging again.  I got away from it almost 9 years ago when Facebook and Twitter bega...
