I would not have you ignorant of these things, brethren

University of Georgia Bulldawg fans will have noticed that the Dawgs got a verbal commitment from one of our county’s finest athletes. The guy is a running back and has all of his freshman year in high school under his belt. He’s a sophomore in high school for crying out loud.

Plodder wants his friends to be aware of the latest study in lion eating habits. They don’t like to eat on full moon. Guess werewolves keep them lying low. I recommend that you do your roaming on the savannah on a full moon. You don’t have to thank me for saving lives. Happy to inform the brethren/sistren.

Local woman wins $317,529 in the lottery. Says she plans to buy a new…dishwasher. Yeah, live it up lady.

Hmmm, there’s some dispute over the exact height of Mt. Everest. Used to be 29,029. Adjusted to 29,035 but might come in at 29,008. I don’t know if I can sleep tonight if they don’t nail this down. Whatever, Plodder sez that it is pretty doggone high.

Casey Anthony has disappeared. Can’t find the recently released non-murderer. Would there be justice in the universe if she were found in a swamp in a few months? Nah. Not at nice thought.

Campus Crusade for Christ is dropping Christ…and dropping Campus…and dropping Crusade. The ‘for’ is looking pretty forlorn. They’re going to go with Cru Ministries, whatever that represents. Explanation is that less is more in a name.

Hottest July day I ever spent was in Anadarko, Oklahoma on a mission trip with our church’s students. Veterans of that trip still remind me of that little excursion. Won’t do it again. Unlike some of his pastor colleagues, Plodder learns a lesson every now and then.

And you are indeed a wise man.

Not to belittle the torment of Anadarko, but the next time they complain, suggest that they visit West Africa in early June...there, even the natives cry for relief!
