One Week

How did a whole week go by without my writing on this blog?  I suppose a few days off occasionally are to be permitted.  But a whole week?

It has gone from 14º to 75º this week, and I did not handle today all that well.  I have been trying to run anywhere from 1-7.5 miles (run/walk, of course) every day this month, but today was probably my worst afternoon thus far.  Who wants to run in hot (75º), dusty weather?  It looks like I shall be moving my running from 3:00 pm's to 9:00 am's so that I don't have to notify our county's First Responder (also, our neighbor) of a possible heatstroke.  How embarrassing would that be, I ask?

6000 dead pigs floating in a river upstream from Shanghai?  How can that be?  6000 sounds like a lot of...dead pigs.  I am only listening to this on BBC Radio, and I don't know the circumstances.  They are saying that the pigs died of cold weather.  Hmmm...

A new Pope.  That doesn't really affect me, or my family of Lutherans and Methodists.  The new Pope has chosen to be called Francis.  Like Francis of Assisi?  Here's a quote attributed to Francis of Assisi that I can appreciate:

Preach the gospel at all times, and when necessary, use words. 

I like that.

I like it that he chose to be Pope Francis the I. I also like that silver pattern.
