"For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants."

In context...Isaiah 44 (v3)

He [Jesus] gives a rest which develops into heaven, and He gives it this day to all who come to Him.

Love this short quote from Spurgeon's "Morning and Evening" available here

Airplane Adventures

Airplane Adventures

Over the next few weeks Mr Blue Man will be travelling round the world. Starting from Hong Kong he's headed to New York (via Chicago) and then on to Geneva, with a final stop in the UK before he returns to Honkers.

Here with his 'partners in crime', Mr Blue Man gets a little cheeky on a plane to New York.

The flights themselves were a little 'eventful'. Mr Blue Man was unable to go to the toilet because federal law preventing him from relieving himself in cubicles with malfunctioning 'alert' buttons. His in-flight entertainment was also interrupted as the captain switched off the system along with the air cond, reading lights, and other electricals due to smoke from broken equipment. But he took great relief in the fact that the problem did not develop any further. Though he almost spilt his coke over a passenger during a brief bout of turbulence.

His motel "Super 8" in New York does have wireless internet access so he is happy to be able to blog from there as the week progresses. Tomorrow he will be working through the day preparing for important humanitarian aid collaboration meetings next week, and on Sunday he will go sightseeing in New York - more photos then.

Wouldn't mind applying the same logic to my programming one day! But like most things, you have to learn to do it well before saying so!

Globe trotting...!

...its now been 2 months since I last posted. Doh!

We've just come to the 'end' of a a very busy period at work and I'm exhausted! We've reached a mile stone and now we get to mark it by heading off around the globe for various meetings (my first work-related trip)

Its gonna be a hard trip, lots will be happening, and we'll be busier than ever, (so not much change from the above), but at the same time it will be a different kind of 'busy' and that is somehow refreshing. Its nice to take a break from programming once in a while! (3 months solid slog is enough to finish anyone off!)

So next week we'll be in New York having meetings with the UN and other aid agencies. The week after we'll be show-casing some work at an Aid and Trade conference in Geneva and the week after that I get to go home! Yay! Haven't been home in almost 8 months.

So if you're at home and wanna catch up...drop me a line!
