Lately I've been reading more "God-bloggers" for lack of a better term and I'm really enjoying Dan Edelen's blog Cerulean Sanctum. He just posted an awesome list of 100 things he had learned over walking with God for 30 years. Some are beautiful, some are theological, some are encouraging, all are convicting. Well worth a read.

I'm really starting to get fed up with this city. Daley is a crook and he's running the city into the ground. Big shock. His latest budget proposal announcement for next year calls for, are you ready for it, 10-15% increase in property taxes. This while Daley and his cronies channel millions of dollars into TIFs (one of the worse scams on the working man ever), can't keep the cops from breaking the law and hurting people, lets the CTA self-destruct, fumbles around with an ill-advised Olympic bid (I don't think a single one of my friends is in favor of it) and continues to award high-paying jobs to friends so they can sit on their asses all day while my tax dollars pay their salary. What the heck is wrong with this city? If this keeps up, finding another place to call home is looking better and better.

Wonderful, thought-provoking article from Andy Crouch. Andy works on The Christian Vision Project for Christianity Today and runs the CultureMakers web site. He is releasing a book of the same name. Thanks to David Wayne the Jolly Blogger for pointing out this great article.

Some farm shots are up on Flickr, including our trip to First Farm Inn in KY just outside Cincinnati (when we went to the Over The Rhine album release party), a trip to More Than Delicious Orchard north of Chicago and our recent trip to Caveny Farm.
