Here is a short message from the EFC nursery kiddos, including The Libster who is holding the “Savior” sign.
Yesterday, I asked if there was a cuter kid in the whole wide world than the Libster at 12 mos. Well, there is…the Libster at 16 mos. Here are a few of her Christmas photos.
And yet another plug for another equally cool photographer: Koti Templeton Photography.
The Libster is now 16.5 mos., but these are her 1 yr. pictures. It just took us a while to finally pick the ones we wanted and order them. I mean, really, is there a cuter kid in the whole wide world (besides your own)?
I also want to plug our photographer who is phenomenal. Her name is Karyn Carbone and her company is In Bloom Photography. She and her family live in Sweetwater, Texas, but she travels all over the US (Florida, in particular) for weddings, engagement pictures, baby shoots, etc.
She also has a photoblog, and this is Libby’s shoot on her photoblog. Check out her stuff, you’ll be impressed.
Here’s the rub, it requires a Windows-based PC, which is fine for me because I use PCs, but it kind of has that Apple/Mac feel, which is a relatively minor point I suppose. But, it also requires 18GB (yes, GB) of free disk space, a dual-core processor, and either 1 or 2GB of RAM depending on your Windows version, and an internet connection.
When you check out the Glo website, you’ll know why. There are over 550 360° virtual tours, 3.5 hours of HD videos, over 140 interactive maps, thousands of high-resolution photos, and over 7,500 articles, and a whole lot more. It’s quite the ambitious project. The cost is considerable, but not oppressive, $89.99(USD).
It’s hard for me to tell who the potential audience is, or isn’t. I would love it, but it’s not something I would use everyday like my trusted paper Bibles. It would be great for presentations or research, and I could see a younger audience liking the interactivity, but I would be interested to see how it is incorporated into regular Bible reading/study habits.
I would be curious if any of you have previewed a review copy since it’s not available until October 15, 2009. I would definitely like to test drive it before I bought it, but I might trust someone else’s test drive.
Here is the official Glo website and other links that might be of interest:
I’m sure God loves all children equally. And I believe all men are created equal, but, come on, He gave this child a little bonus in the looks department:
For any of you who aren’t my friends on facebook, I just updated my status as follows:
“Peter M Lopez can smell football season in the air, ahhh. I expect Texas to win the national championship, narrowly defeating Notre Dame 35-34 in the championship game, and the Dallas Cowboys to win the Superbowl.”
This would, of course, be my dream scenario…but, for the first time in many, many years, this is not such a laughable possibility.
So, what does this have to do with the Bible? Well, let’s see, having been born and raised Catholic, “Touchdown Jesus” is iconic. The only acceptable defeat for the Irish would be to the Texas Longhorns. “Touchdown Jesus” is also perhaps the greatest legend in football…
…second only to the hole in the roof of Texas Stadium so God can watch the Cowboys.
So, there you have it.
The Biblioblog Top 50 for June is out, and here’s the scoop:
- In June, the complete biblioblog list topped 250 blogs, and now stands at 258. There are also 191 related blogs for a whopping 449 blogs in all;
- My buddy tc robinson over at New Leaven makes his debut at No. 40. Congrats to tc;
- One of my personal favorites, Nick Norelli at RDTWT, and the less-than-deserving winner of this prize for the reasons stated therein, comes in at No. 18;
- Ol’ what’s his name is still No. 1 and surprisingly humble about it; and
- Your’s truly is hanging in there, a slight slippage from last month, but a respectable No. 15.
I guess that just about puts a bow on the month of June, except that I neglected to mention on this blog that my little Libby “the Libster” Lopez turned one this weekend. Happy birthday Libby!
A few weeks ago, I wrote about what I thought was, at the time, the most interesting search string that got a searcher to my blog (if you were stuck on a desert island which…).
Now, such idle speculations have been replaced atop the most interesting search string list. The new most interesting search string to land a searcher here is now:
- world’s top 50 beauties – 2009
Assuming for the moment that the searcher for the world’s top 50 beauties – 2009 was, in fact, attempting to satisfy some carnal curiosity and not searching for Biblical beauty, imagine the good that would come (not to mention traffic) if every searcher of worldly and/or fleshly beauty landed on a site that offered spiritual beauty in its stead. May the Lord bring more of them.
But, lucky for this guy (admittedly, I’m assuming the searcher was male), I am able to offer both. Here are the top beauties of 2009 (my wife and daughter):
