News and Notes

First, thanks to everyone who has emailed me about my wife's surgery. I didn't mention it here, but I talked about it on the podcast this week, and many of my regular readers here listen to the podcast.

For those who missed it (and you really SHOULD listen to the podcast, it's good music!), my wife had her gallbladder removed on Monday. We were afraid that she had appendicitis, so we ran to the hospital even though we've got no insurance -- we've applied, but hadn't heard anything -- figuring that if it WAS her appendix, we needed to do something. After two trips to the ER, they found out it was her gallbladder. Her gallbladder was extremely inflamed -- so much that they couldn't do the surgery laproscopically (I hope that's spelled right ...). So she has a rather long incision and about 15 staples in her right now. But she's home (as of Thursday) and resting comfortably -- but I'm now in charge of the housework (and you can imagine what that means for the state of our house right now!).

But through it, God showed how He takes care of us. Monday afternoon, when we got home from the hospital, in the mailbox we found .... our new insurance cards. Coverage dated to November 9 -- the day before our first trip to the ER. Wow. That's all I can say about that one.

And speaking of the podcast, the promo for View From the Pew Radio aired today on the Podcast 411 podcast. If you've ever thought about podcasting, Rob's site has a great how-to showing you how to get everything set up to make a great-sounding podcast.

Also, a new addition to the blogroll. Discoshaman has returned to the blogosphere, and so the ling to Le Sabot Post-Moderne is back in the blogroll. Go there, read that, 'nuff said. Of course, if you're just finding out about this now, you don't read too many other blogs ...

I haven't posted much Blogger Football League stuff recently because I'd sound like a broken record. The Pewie Podcasters are currently 2-9 for the season. The hockey team is doing much better -- I'd be winning this week if I had remembered to set my roster up Monday and Tuesday (I was a little busy -- see the first point above ;-) ).

I've got book reviews and CD reviews to write for a bunch of places, and I have more coming, so you'll get to read those in the next week or so. And I've got other things planned -- including the Mark Study I've been neglecting. So stick around -- it'll be worth it, promise!!

{Edit -- I just re-read this (11/21) and am ashamed of the amount of typos in this post. I'm VERY sorry to everyone who had to try and read this the first time.}
