Miners Memorial, Blog Boycott, Tune Trifecta

Keeping an eye on plans for a memorial service for the twenty-nine miners killed at Pike River Coal Mine, 2 pm Thursday 2 December. Update here. I think the nation will stop still, as the service will be telecast. It will be an intriguing sign that this nation is less secular than we sometimes tell ourselves.

Boycotting my own blog? Sort of. The penny dropped this morning that slow access to the internet might be because our ISP limit for the month has been reached. Checked the meter. Sure enough. Culprits easy to detect, and it wasn't me. Might be some students returned home from nirvana (i.e. university) where the internet is as limitless as sand in the Sahara. Anyway, what with slow internet and some research to do on Revelation for a teaching course next year, the next few days may see few signs of life here.

Tune trifecta ... that will be me on Tuesday night seeing whether my third induction in nine days yields a third time of singing a fave song. Will let you know.

Anglican Communion thoughts: thinking about what I would do if I were the Autocrat over the Communion. Post soon!

Someone should introduce you to comas.

Comas?

David, I trust you mean commas!

Sorry, I was thinking that since it was the same words in both languages that it was spelled the same. Leave it to you lot to throw in extra letters. The Statesonian, Mr Daniel Webster, has eliminated a few, but not nearly enough.

OK Peter, it is a few commas to which someone should introduce you. Anyway, two of them, appropriately placed, would have helped me make better sense of the headline more quickly.
