Korean Monkey's sing "Kiki Kiki"

This entry is dedicated to my beloved sister and friend who is helping making the world a better place. For everyones edification and entertainment, you may like to know that in Korean Monkeys say "kiki kiki" which is interesting because Kirsten has a strange kinship with the creatures (and it happens to be the name I GAVE HER when I we were wee ones).

So its been a while.... and I have been pretty busy. Unfortunately it is not the sort of busy that is worth writing much about, other wise this entry would be quite a bit longer. So I have just been living life, going to work, walking around my lake in the mornings, teaching the kids (which I am getting better and better at every time in make a mistake, which is about ever half hour).

The weather has turned. It is Officially freezing. And I am not just using that word. I see peoples frozen spit wads all over the streets. The pond is starting to get a ring of glass around the shore, and it might snow tonight (although they said that last night too and it didn't).

I have been meeting tons of really wonderful people. I have a small group of friends who go to this little bar a few blocks away from my house every Wednesday night. People come and just get up and jam on all the instruments that are just there for people to play. We dominated the group with our tambourine skills.
I am going to a Thanksgiving dinner with my church on the 23rd. It will be held at the American army base, and should be wonderful. I cant wait to stuff myself. I feel like I have an excuse now to eat more pie and ice cream... its called survival! I will send you all more recent pictures soon but until I get those down loaded please look these over and leave me a comment about and how greco-roman architecture was based on the roman basilica!

I love you all!

Our God really is a consuming Fire. Glory be to Her name!

PS... It just started snowing!!!! YEAH!!! hehehehee!

Snow before Thanksgiving! Wonderful.

How very interesting about Monkeys in Korea saying "Kiki". I wonder what they say in the US. Or in Chile? Anyway, there you go -- you were channeling Korean monkeys when you were 1 or 2.

Frozen spit wads? Disgusting. I never spit on the sidewalk. (Well, not if it is going to freeze and present a hazard to subsequent pedestrians.)

Thanks for the update of the blog. I am just one of the vocal of your many fans.
