Photo-Friday-post-header2

YAY!! It’s Friday, uh, I mean Photo Friday. First, let me apologize to all of you who expect Photo Friday in your reader or email to savor with your morning cup of coffee. We have visitors (my in-laws) and it has been a little complicated.

Our car is in the shop again (2+ months so far). We have not installed the air conditioners yet in the new apartment (last week it was rainy and cool) and one of the fans locked up so I had to tear it apart and fix it. All of that came between me and getting you the premier cellphone camera tour of Paraguay. I will try my best to get back to the early schedule next week so your java isn’t lonely.

Now to the good stuff. If you’re following along on the map grab your china markers and get comfy. Continue reading »

Thank you so much, Jesus Junk International. We were having trouble separating the “sheep from the goats,” so-to-speak. We installed the turnstiles in the parking lots to get a more accurate count of attendance, but the newbies were sneaking through. We really needed a way to avoid another Twitter-gate. Ya’ know, social media halts for no man or church. You got get that stuff out there at high traffic o’clock or you’re toast. Recently our corp of Twitter ninjas got caught with their 140 characters down (IYKWIM). They were dropping vistor and baptism numbers all over the place. It looked [...read more and comment...]

All aboard! The Photo Friday express is about to leave the station. I have been hard at work gathering photos and constructing captions. I hope this week’s offerings will satisfy your need to see more of Paraguay from the perspective of my cellphone camera. As always, if you have missed any part of the tour, jump to the bottom of this post to see more Photo Friday posts or click the link in the menu bar.

After an extended, albeit necessary developmental interlude, Jesus Junk International is back and stronger than ever. A little market research was in order. We wanted our collective finger on the erratic pulse of Christendom to decipher what products were most desired, needed, even necessary. It was a scary enterprise, to be sure, but one we wanted, nay, needed to do if we were to give our faithful customers the best in church enhancement products. When the skymiles were spent and the data tabulated, we found our target. It was clear to us here at Jesus Junk that Christians are not immune to [...read more and comment...]

It’s back!! Photo Friday has made its return after a several months respite. I have been feverishly fielding questions from all you addicts about the whereabouts of Photo Friday and the blog in general. Be at peace my brothers and sisters. I have a great line up in the cell-cam tour of Paraguay to settle those shaking hands. Just sit back, relax and feast your eyes on the following photo bonanza. 

Here We Go Again

Here We Go Again

  So, uh, it’s been, uh, a while since we met like this. I mean as reader and blogger. Ya’ know, I never meant to be gone this long. I wanted to take a break from the writing. I wanted to re-wrinkle my gray matter; smart brains are more wrinkly and mine was getting a little, ahem, smooth. I needed a pause, a timeout. I had hoped that one day I would be successful enough to take a sabbatical. That’s what CEOs and Fortune 500 types call it. It turns out what I got was a hiatus. A hiatus is [...read more and comment...]
