I am enjoying a new laptop I purchased from my friend, Tim. It runs just about every game I've tried fabulously, and it has a DVD player and I have been wasting a considerable amount of time on it. The good news is I still get out every night just about, so I as of today I still have a life.

A Long Time From Now....

What do you think Earth will be like in 10,000 years (presuming it still exists and is inhabitable)? Here's a bit of Sci-Fi from a London evolutionary theorist: Human species 'may split in two'. Of course, it's nonsense, but it's still kind of fun to think about. I propose that the dominant species will be short, ugly, and incredibly intelligent, and that the subservient species will be tall, strong, and good-looking by today's standards, but very stupid. The trolls will use them as beasts of burden. Moo!

Castle Retreat 2006

retreat [ri-treet] noun
a place where devoted Christians go to take cold showers and sleep on camp mattresses, hoping to get closer to God

This was my first time going on the Calvary Chapel of Webster Castle Retreat, so I wasn't really sure what to expect. I guess I am still processing the spiritual side of it, so all I have to offer right now is a few pictures and observations. Enjoy!

The "castle" isn't so much of a castle as it is a giant stone farmhouse. Inside, very little of the original decorative details are left. Instead is a hodge-podge of country style decorations, donated furniture, and assorted found objects.

Some examples of found objects in my room: a picture of Jesus on a log...

...and a portrait of President Woodrow Wilson.

A bit of righteous vandalism.

The hillside location offered some spectacular views, like this one from the terrace.

And this one from the Prayer Tower.

A gorgeous sunset delayed our Thursday evening study.

Friday afternoon, I took a walk up the hill to the chapel.

On the way down, I found this little bit of wildlife.

Another view of the steps looking down to the... wait, is that an exotic car lurking in the bushes?

Only one company designs cars with such distinctive stying.

Would now be a good time to learn how to drive stick?
