I've added a minor enhancement to BlogWatcher. It's so minor, in fact, that most people probably won't even notice it. It has to do with handling dates that are way out of line.
In the old version, BlogWatcher trusted the publication date for each item. In most cases, its still does. But there are three cases where it does not any more

I don't normally do these quizzes, but I figured I should do this one. I appear to have come out tied between "Modern Liberal" and "Emergent/Postmodern" which seems about right.

The reading for today at the One Year Bible Blog includes Matthew 15:1-28. He calls the church leaders "onto the carpet" so to speak for so burying the word of God in rules and regulations that it's virtually unrecognisable. To me, it's very clear that he's saying that what you do is not nearly as important as why you do it.

As of a few months ago, I am PADI certified as an "Open Water Diver." Yesterday, I got the scuba gear that I bought on eBay . So now I'm looking for some dive buddies! Wendy has no interest in learning to dive, so I'm putting out the call to those who read this (and who hopefully aren't too far away) to see if there are any other closet divers out there.

Today's reading has some good stuff! Joseph finally gets a break in Genesis 41 when he is able, with God's help, to interpret Pharoah's dreams, and so ends up as Pharoah's right hand man. Mike's comments suggest that Joseph didn't put himself forward for this position, but the next thing he mentions is the picture from "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." While the scripture doesn't indicate that he did so, the play certainly does.

Those of you who've been reading along with my comments for the Bible in a Year blog will have notice a theme. At least, I have. I seem to be caught up with the idea that Abraham's deceit and self-reliance carried through with negative consequences to Isaac, and Jacob, and Jacob's children. But, in today's reading , Joseph seems to be the remedy for that chain of sin.
