A La Carte (06/27)

Tuesday June 27, 2006

Humor: A reader named Russell sent me the link to a neat little audio file that plays a composition made only with sound effects included with Windows. You’ll need Flash to play it.

Blog: Adrian Warnock has closed the doors on his blog for a few days after coming down with shingles. I had to look it up. It is apparently “the reactivation of varicella zoster virus, leading to a crop of painful blisters over the area of a dermatome. It occurs very rarely in children and adults, but its incidence is high in the elderly (over 60), as well as in any age group of immunocompromised patients” It doesn’t sound particularly nice.

Family: Lisa discusses a difficult and painful issue: whether or not parents can “divorce” their adopted children.

Review: Paul has a largely positive review of Ligon Duncan and Susan Hunt’s book “Women’s Ministry in the Local Church.”
