An open letter to a Liverpool fan

Dear Liverpool Fan,Subject : From Doubters to BelieversI started supporting Liverpool in the beginning of 2000. It all started with a Michael Owen goal I caught in telly. And my curiosity pulled me more and more towards Owen and the club he played for.

On the Smugglers’ Radar

“On The Smugglers’ Radar” is a feature for books that have caught our eye: books we have heard of via other bloggers, directly from publishers, and/or from our regular incursions into the Amazon jungle. Thus, the Smugglers’ Radar was born. Because we want far more books than we can possibly buy or review (what else is new?), we thought we would make the Smugglers’ Radar into a weekly feature – so YOU can tell us which books you have on your radar as well!

72 hours on The Outer Banks of NC

“L ong walks on the beach” are a dating profile cliché for a reason — few things are as serene or romantic as a leisurely stroll on a quiet strip of sand, waves nipping at your feet. While other East Coast beaches have given way to miles of high-rise condos, tacky souvenir shops, and 24-hour casinos, North Carolina’s Outer Banks have retained their natural, remote beauty. This string of barrier islands is home to a series of uncrowded beaches, Insta-perfect sunrises, and some of the freshest s...

Maximum chlorine levels for starter? Submitted by Owen on January 22, 2019 - 2:33am. Our city water is good, with chlorine about 0.6ppm, but it seems to kill my white starter, so I use a chlorine filter. Does anyone have an idea the maximum level of chlorine that should be used with starter?

Banksy's latest creation, which depicts a kid licking ash out of the air, just sold for more than $129,000 — but that wasn't the highest offer

Celebrated street artist Banksy's latest work, called "Season's Greetings," was painted on the side of a garage in Port Talbot, Wales days before Christmas. The garage owner just sold the art for more than 100,000 pounds ($129,000). He didn't sell to the highest bidder though; instead he sold to a buyer who promised to leave the work in the town for at least two years.  From one side of the building, the image appears to show a child licking snowflakes out of the air. But turn the corner, and ...

A La Carte (January 14)

Today’s Kindle deals include several good books from Crossway, including one of my all-time favorites: Owen’s Overcoming Sin and Temptation. (Yesterday on the blog: What Has the Lord Been Teaching You From His Word?) Do All Things Without Complaint I enjoyed this reflection on God’s goodness and our complaining. “God’s plan is to do a new thing; he’s making us holy like he is holy, removing sin fully from our hearts so we can one day live with him in glory.

He Sought to Kill Sin with a Pen: John Owen (1616–1683)

Fifty years or so ago, you would have been hard-pressed to find anyone who could recognize the name John Owen. Today, he is regularly quoted from pulpits and in articles as though his name were a household word. This is even more surprising because almost everybody who mentions him adds, “But he is not light reading!” After all, he lived in the seventeenth century, thought in Latin, wrote long and profound works of theology, and belonged to the marginalized group of Christians we call Puritans. ...

Banksy Paints a Grim Holiday Mural: Season’s Greetings to All

Season’s greetings from Banksy. Two months after shredding a painting at a London auction, the street artist has resurfaced again. This time in Port Talbot, Wales, where he spray-painted a holiday mural on two sides of a garage. One sides shows a young boy frolicking in what looks like falling snow. The other side makes you realize that the snow is really a fire spewing toxic ash. According to the BBC, Gary Owen, a Port Talbot resident,  messaged Banksy last summer and asked him to put a spotli...

After His Son Has a Bad Game, LeBron Delivers the Perfect Pep Talk

You made three of the biggest plays of the game,” James told Bryce, sitting on the sideline together after the team barely eked out a win. You get too down on yourself for no reason. The 33-year-old dad of three then goes on to describe what exactly those three impressive plays were: getting the offensive rebound when the team was down by four, firing off an outlet pass to teammate Owen “when he got the and-one” and then making another key pass at the end to win the game.

Banksy's latest creation depicts a kid licking ash out of the air, and it calls attention to a global health crisis

Celebrated street artist Banksy is out with a new work, called "Season's Greetings," which is located in Port Talbot, Wales. From one side of the building, the image appears to show a child licking snowflakes out of the air. But turn the corner and you realize that the kid is really ingesting ash from a dumpster fire. The image draws attention to a painful truth: more than 90% of the world's people are breathing polluted air, which can be deadly. The citizens of Port Talbot inhale some of the ...

Hints for sourdough rolls?

Hints for sourdough rolls? Submitted by Owen on December 16, 2018 - 6:20pm. I've been making some good loaves with 100% white flour, 70% hydration (no additives). I decided to experiment with using the same dough making rolls, with mixed results (see photo), baking them at 200deg C for 30 minutes. On one dimension they are fine (good crumb inside) but the crust was a bit hard, so next time I'll do it at 180deg. The other thing is that when I put it on the tray to rise, they te...

A former LA Daily News security guard had an ‘attititude that shined’

“I’m not sure if anyone at the paper remembers my grandfather, Alfonso Rodriguez, or knew him while he was there. He passed away last week at the age of 80.” – Chris McGuiness Oh, we remember him, Chris. You don’t forget a man like your grandfather. His job title was security guard, but he’d joke that he was really a glorified receptionist. It was just like Al to downplay how important he was to all of us here. In so many ways, he became our grandfather, too. I used to kid and call him Father Ro...

Apple, Microsoft Holiday Ads Focus on Emotional Connections Over Products

Two tech giants have released holiday ads that focus on feel-good messages to great effect. Apple’s is about sharing and creativity, while Microsoft’s is about inclusivity. Both use emotion rather than products to envelop and deliver the brand message. Apple’s holiday ad this year, titled “Share Your Gifts,” is a charming animated story of Sofia, toiling on a secret project she is hesitant to share. Her dog opens a window and all of her pages fly away, into the hands of other people who enjo...
