Yes, I think I’m a Golfer now.

Well, those who have played with me may not agree that what I do on the course qualifies as “golf” – but I think I have discovered a sport that I can really enjoy. And now that I have discovered a beautiful par 3 nine hole course near my house that cost just a little more than a movie I think its something I can finally afford to do. (The other ones near my house are between $32 and $78 for a round of 18 holes.) I have a long and painful history with golf. As a boy I broke a frame on the wall in my house showing my sister how to swing a golf club. (To hide the dent in the metal frame I turned the picture upside down and rehung the frame upside down so the bent was on the bottom. It took my Mom less than fifteen minutes upon getting home to ask, “How did this frame get dented?” Little sister was all too happy to explain. Busted.) My grandfather tried to teach me. (see his clubs here) Once at the driving range I humiliated him when my sweaty hands allowed the club to fly out…

Kidologist Demonstrates new BATTLESTACK!

As mentioned in my podcast interview with Speed Stack’s Roger Washburn, I was sent one of the very first BattleStack games! And wasted no time in arranging the ultimate battle between boys and girls with my nephew and niece! Here is the video via YouTube: Or you can download a higher resolution QuickTime file. (37.4mb) AND, YES! You can buy a BattleStack Game in the Kidology Store: BE ONE OF THE FIRST TO OWN THIS! I know at many churches I’ve seen Speed Stack cups available to kids, but they often don’t know what to do with them if they’ve not been taught. But with the BattleStack any kids can instantly start to play using the BattleStack cards. What a GREAT GAME to make available for the kids that are early or hanging around afterwards waiting for Mom and Dad to get them! (Hint: you need at least two!)

The playground is a tangible way to show the children and…

Finally, the Perfect PDA!

I am happy to announce that I finally have discovered the perfect PDA, and no, it’s not the iPhone. (which stupidly has no task management – even though Tasks is an integrated part of Mac Mail and Mac iCal – despite everything else amazing about it.) Thanks to my buddy, aka BalloonPastor, who linked it on his blog. It is called PocketMod! It is an awesome PAPER organizer you can use throughout your day to record the “stuff” that comes up. But it is BETTER than that, through an online interactive guide, you get to determine what is on each page, with MANY to choose from! After you determine what you want on each page from lines to calendars to shopping lists, etc. you just print, fold and after one cut – you have the perfect PDA! No batteries to run out – no stylus – nearly indestructible (from dropping anyway) and ready to go. Here are the simple folding instructions If you are a fan of David Allen’s book Getting Things Done, you will love this easy and practical tool for making sure you capture all those stray thoughts so you to can have a “mind like water.” (you’ll…

A Prayer Bearly Answered

I’ve got lots of pictures to post and stories to tell about the very first Yosemite Summit, but for those of you who like to read the last chapter of books first – I’ll start by telling you about a very cool thing that happened at the very end of the trip. I’d been to Yosemite many times as a boy and then not for a long time until my sabbatical in 2005. I’ve gotten pictures of many animals, but other than being “attacked” by a bear at Yosemite as a boy (you’ll have to ask me in person for the story – posting it takes away the fun to telling it!) I’ve not seen a bear at Yosemite. So on our first day in the park on our “solitude hike” among much more spiritual things, I selfishly prayed that God might let me see and photograph a bear on this trip. It was a childish prayer to my Abba Father, one I knew He may not answer, but I’ve learned He loves me enough that I need to at least ask. If my asking is wrong, He’ll show me by not answering. I kept my eyes alert for a…
