Trump, Candy Corn, And Boo

I found a stray dog last night. As soon as I got home from work I saw this little black dog playing with Quincy and Harvey. His name is Boo. The owner's number has been disconnected. I called the veterinary clinic that gave him his rabies shot, hoping they could find the owner, but no call back as of Thursday night, which is when I'm writing this. Boo just may be having a doggy sleepover with us until I can call again in the morning.

In other news, I'm dying for some Zachary Gourmet Candy Corn. Remember, the kind I included in that giveaway last year? Boy, it was some good stuff. I went on a candy corn hunt at Walmart, but they don't have it one the shelf yet. Boo! Boo as in I don't like that, not Boo as in the dog.



I heard on the radio yesterday that Donald Trump is trying to buy out one of the real estate investors that owns that piece of land at Ground Zero that they want to build a mosque on. If he gets it, he'll require that the mosque be built five blocks away instead. I hope he gets it - I think that would be a nice peaceable solution to the whole problem. Go you, Donald Trump! I'm definitely watching The Apprentice this year. Always kind of liked the Donald. Here's an article about Trump's effort at settling the Ground Zero Mosque debate.




Oh rats, I just read some more news, and the guy declined Trump's offer. Boo! As in, I don't like that. Oh well. It was a good effort.

Derek has had to work late all this week (budget season), so I'm left home all alone these evenings. How depressing. I think I'm going to watch a girl movie and eat some fudge tonight.

I just bought an ESV Bible, and I'm super excited about it! Why? Because according to John Macarthur (who I happen to trust as a Bible teacher), the New American Standard Version and the English Standard Version are the most accurate translations of the Bible (meaning, the most accurate to what the original Hebrew and Greek were saying). He also gave the New King James Version an honorable mention as an accurate translation too, which is the version I currently use. But I'm excited to be able to compare in the ESV now. Which Bible translation do you use?

I'll close this totally random post now. Please proceed to leave me any totally random comments that you may desire to compose.

Ooh, I loved this post for some reason. I felt like I was sitting at a table, drinking coffee, listening to you talk. Thanks for the Trump update, it's hard to get news here and I want to stay on top of the happenings! Can't wait to hear more on the Boo saga!

Poor lost pup! Hopefully you'll find his owners soon. I love my KJV Bible, but I've heard the ESV is really awesome!

i'm not a fan of Donal Trump... usually. But i got give the guy kudos for trying to protect the broken hearts of New York.
Personally, I'm not offended by the desire to build a mosque there. It's a building. Muslims were also killed in 9/11 by those insane radicals. To me, it's nothing more than a building. I don't believe in the faith, so maybe that's why I don't mind. And in our country where we are told to be tolerant to so many things that aren't of God, I don't see why this is different. Though, I don't understand why they would want to build there. I would hope they would be sympathetic to the hearts that haven't healed, and understand that while America doesn't blame all Muslim's our heart is still broken. They too should be tolerant.
And that is my unpopular view of the day.

:O I hope Boo finds a home soon. I hate seeing stray animals :(

I really need to watch/read the news. I have not heard anything about a Mosque being near ground zero...

I LOVE my ESV bible. I switched from NKJV 4 years ago, and I don't ever plan to go back! I hope you like it too!

Anna said...

I love the ESV. It's so clear and readable, and very precise as far as I can tell, being a non-Greek expert. I did study translations when I worked in a Christian bookstore, and the NASB and the ESV are definitely the most literal... but the ESV is a little more natural-sounding in most people's opinion.

That being said, my hubby uses the NKJV and really likes the more traditional sound. It's more on the literal side of the spectrum as well.

I've always used King James Version. I'm interested about this new one...

You may just have a dog forever now. We had a cat show up at our door oh about 5 months ago and he's still here LOL

Mmm that candy corn was so good! I'm still so happy that I won :D

I use the NLT (New Living Translation). To be honest, I've never heard how it compares with the ESV or anything like that, but I just love it.
