Do you get way too many telemarketers calling your house? I don’t, but I know both mine and Rachel’s parents get at least a couple of a day. The Canadian government actually stepped up on this one and made an opt-out website so you can get out of all telemarketers lists (besides a few exceptions). Remove your number now, it takes 10 seconds. We obviously all want off these lists, thousands have already done it in the last few days and overwhelmed their system.

Here is a little secret. Tickets are available for the Evolving Church Conference as of today. We haven’t told anyone yet though. We expect they are going to go fast this year, so you’ll want to get them sooner than later if you are planning on coming. So I’ll give you a chance to get your tickets ahead of time before we make it public.

A couple from theStory started up an initiative to give up something this month and give whatever you would save to the Inn of the Good Shepherd. My attempts will be gasoline (besides the already booked things I am going to) and grocery stores (to try and make myself go to only the farmers market). We’ll see how it goes.

Another couple from theStory have started up catering raw vegan lunches twice a week. For $12 you can pick up a packed up lunch (in a biodegradable box) on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I snuck some tastes of their cabbage spring rolls last weekend and this week I had lasagna on Tues and it was awesome! Go to their website for more details.

I put a Green sign on my lawn for this election. Partly because I really like Elizabeth May, partly because I believe in their cause, and partly because if I’m going to vote, I don’t think I could vote for anyone else.

Cool play on words and cool initiative.

This was the best trailer I’ve ever seen. Talk about grabbing my attention. It makes me completely sick though.

As usual I have no idea what Al’s post was about, however there is a picture of them playing settlers (or at least they are playing a game and the post is called settlers), which reminds me that just yesterday I picked up the new extension for the game called Traders and Barbarians and look forward to playing it with everyone here and abroad like we do.

I wrote this post a while back on who the poor is, and Dan wrote this post this month. Usually he can explain things so much better than I can, and almost always I feel like he is inside my head taking how I feel and giving it some meat and making it sound better and then taking it to the level that I was too scared to take it but then when it’s over it still feels right.
