Taste-testing coffee

Posted by joelbyer on October 31, 2005


This last week we had Rev. Harry Plank for our evangelist for Fall Revival here at Dawn Valley Bible Methodist Church. We had a great time!
The first full day he was here (Wednesday), I took him out to Tim Hortons – a popular coffee & donut shop with Canadians. He ordered a black coffee, and I ordered one with creme & sugar. I picked up the 2 coffees from the drive-through window, gave him (what I thought was) his, and sipped mine.
You guessed it! We got it backwards.
Now I really didn’t know what to do. Keep in mind this is the first time out with Bro. Plank and I’m still a little nervous trying to be the good host and all.
Well, he didn’t mind, and took his black coffee back.
However, for the next week this spawned relentless wisecracks about taste-testing food to make sure it was good enough for him… Canadian germs… you name it! And of course, he had to wax eloquent about this incident from the pulpit. Oh well, guess I had it coming to me 🙂
Just another day in the life of a preacher

Google to threaten e-bay?

I regularly post stuff on e-bay, but it appears not that Google may be entering the market as well. This would be great! Maybe e-bay will lower their fees then. click link above

This is what we ate for Sunday dinner today. (Well, actually my wife put it in the oven or something because we don’t usually eat raw pork) I thought it looked cool, so I laid it on the floor and took its picture.
