No Argument Here

 

Semi-daily preaching by a Semi-daily Preacher on a semi-daily basis

Greg Lee as Brother Preacher

Greg Lee as Brother Preacher

I just wrapped up a fascinating and enlightening conversation with a two year old boy in a coffee shop.  I think he won.

As many of you know I routinely do a lot of my writing in coffee shops.  There’s just something about trying to concentrate above the noise of a continuous cappuccino machine that I find helpful to creativity.  

Anyhow, as is my custom, I was sitting along the back wall  tip-typing away, feeling (and appearing) very productive and important to all around, when I sensed somebody very short, and slobbery staring at me.  I looked up and saw a shirt-less, 2 1/2 foot, tow-headed, 2 year-old boy in light blue overalls and sandals smiling at me and pointing at my computer.

“I Colby!” he announced.

“Hello, Colby,” I said, “I working.”

Then Colby screamed with delight at this hilarious joke.  It was then I realized just how intelligent he really was. Intelligent people always “get” my jokes. «Read the rest of this article»

Tennessee joins Lapsed Boater Recruitment Program in an effort to increase Boat Registration Renewals

 

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency - TWRANashville, TN – The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is participating in the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation’s (RBFF) Lapsed Boat Registration Pilot Program. The program is directed at increasing boat registration renewals among lapsed boaters.

Tennessee is the fourth state to implement the direct mail pilot effort developed by RBFF in partnership with the Oregon State Marine Board (OSMB) and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW). Tennessee joins Florida, Ohio and Oregon.

“We’re thrilled that Tennessee is joining our pilot program to increase boat registration renewals,” said RBFF President and CEO Frank Peterson. “Boat registrations are critical to state fish and wildlife and boating infrastructure programs, and we’ve learned that if we simply remind boat owners about the joys of the sport and the important impact their participation has, they’ll get back out on the water.”

Tennessee is one of the nation's leading states offering recreational waterways, and most "Volunteer State" residents will at some time take advantage of this tremendous opportunity.

Former APSU Art Professor Schlanger to Have Work on Display at University

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – For 19 years, Gregg Schlanger sauntered across the Austin Peay State University campus wearing a blazer, an untucked shirt and a ball cap pushed back on his head. He’d stop the students, faculty and staff members who crossed his path to make a joke or tease them affectionately.

He was unassuming and relaxed, but for those who knew him, he was a deeply serious artist whose work brought light to important social issues, such as the availability of drinking water in Third World nations. Earlier this summer, Schlanger ended his long tenure at APSU as professor and interim chair of the art department in order to head up the art program at Central Washington University.

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of August 21st

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

Fear remained a significant factor in the financial markets, as concerns about weaker economic growth and worries that Europe’s sovereign debt crisis may be morphing into a fully-fledged banking crisis (with some implications for the U.S.) helped send long-term Treasury yields to record lows (the 10-year note traded briefly below 2%).

The economic data were mixed, but consistent with a lackluster-to-moderate pace of growth in the overall economy, not a recession. Industrial production rose 0.9% (more than expected), boosted by hot weather (increased output of utilities) and a rebound in autos – otherwise, manufacturing output rose 0.3%. Residential construction activity was soft. Existing home sales disappointed (the National Association of Realtors cited problems in the appraisal process and difficulties in obtaining financing). Consumer price inflation rose more than expected, boosted by the seasonal adjustment (which inflated gasoline prices) and higher apparel costs (three large increases in a row). Owner’s equivalent rent (which accounts for about a quarter of the overall CPI and a third of the core CPI) rose 0.3% (as a point of comparison, OER rose 0.3% over the 12 months ending December 2010). «Read the rest of this article»
