New Photoshop Diet!

Posted by joelbyer on August 30, 2006

New York Post Online Edition: News
There has been a recent furor about a Katie Couric photo – a news anchor for television which… uh-hmmm… I don’t have. Anyway, it’s really cool how manipulating a photo can make you thinner. Saves so much time and pain with eating less, exercising, etc. So…below I try it myself. OK, so I don’t have Photoshop and it doesn’t make me look that much thinner, but perhaps whenever you think of me now, you’ll think of Katie Couric.

Blogger Changes

Posted by joelbyer on August 28, 2006

Bear with me folks. I’m attempting some significant blogger changes around here. Might look weird for a bit at times. Now, everything will be perfectly fine UNLESS you see a Christmas cat below. Then you definitely want to panic, because I’ve actually posted a picture of Jeffrey and Janessa. You’ve probably have let your lens prescription run out.

Conservative Holiness Chat Rooms

Posted by joelbyer on August 27, 2006

If you’re anything like me, you spend all your spare time in the Conservative Holiness chat rooms. I’m kidding of course, but there really is a Conservative Holiness message board this appears to be promising. Usually, online ideas like this seem to die a quick death, but this one seems to be working because people are actually contributing info. So go sign up and join in here!

Officially Annoyed

Posted by joelbyer on August 26, 2006

Since I’ve switched over to the new blogger beta program, I can’t seem to be able to post pictures through hello.com. This puts me in a state of official annoyment. Actually, I don’t like to gripe and complain. I get so tired of people who do! All they do is whine whine whine. These people really bug me. I wish they would just stop complaining and going on and on with ceaseless words just like I’m doing right now. Anyway, I just had fun whining about people who whine :-).

However, I should be thankful for the privilege of using blogger beta. Evidently, not everyone can. http://www.blogger.com has chosen only a few bloggers to use the progam. I, ladies and gentlemen, happen to be one of the elite few. I’ll try not to let it go to my head. You can see the difference in the program by the new style blogger bar on the top of the blog.

Sunday School blues

Posted by joelbyer on August 24, 2006

CNN.com – Sunday school teacher dumped for being female
I came across this news incident this morning that has been generating quite a bit of controversy. My thoughts??
1) Churches DO have a right to set their own rules and bylaws. I don’t agree with their decision, but religious freedom must mean the freedom to do the unpopular.
2) There may be more to this story than just “Biblical interpretations”. Was there a power struggle? Other issues here? Seems very possible.
3) It’s a good thing we don’t fire women Sunday School teachers at our church! 🙂 We’d be in trouble, because they basically all are!

Here’s another link to the story…

BBB breaks records again

Posted by joelbyer on August 23, 2006

The following speech is to be delivered noon today in front of the White House.
Mr. President, assembled guests, and fellow Canadians and Americans.
I stand here today, humbly yet arrogantly, armed with the knowledge that BBB has received over 100 hits on Monday and Tuesday. We recognize that this is far more hits that Radical Rib could even dream of, but we will never be condescending. Oh no!
Have a great bloggers lunch,
Joel

In other news :-). There’s a new blogger beta program out (um I guess all beta progams are new!), so I’ve switched this blog over to that format…partially. OK, that sounds really confusing, but for all you bloggers out there, check it out for yourself. I see Malcolm has already made the switch.

Yesteday, our family went by the water near the Bluewater Bridge in Sarnia. Janessa loved “wading” in the water. Jeffrey was scared.
