Keeper Of Days by Jon Guerra.
The title track of the album of the same name.
Amazing lyrics. Timeless, yet very timely.

I do not understand your mind
Yet still I know you set the synapses of time
Though I am small I know you light my path
My precious Lord and God

All life is yours
All death is yours
Keeper of days
I give you praise
I give you praise

Okay. Granddaughter thought a themed cake, preferably Star Wars was in order. It needed to be gluten free. And manageable in a socially distant fashion. And easily transportable for those who’d eaten a big dinner and would prefer to take theirs away.

So, chocolate Storm Trooper cupcakes with cream cheese white chocolate frosting and marshmallow toppers were in order.

What was most satisfying from a fatherly perspective was that all my kids understood why they had to be a certain size, because no one should look at a storm trooper cupcake and say “Aren’t you a little short to be a storm trooper cupcake?”

Well, NRL made it back and the world didn’t come to an end.
And the results demonstrated that the more things change, the more things stay the same.
So, let’s see how the second round plays out.
One of my tipping things counts draws as plus, the other one doesn’t. I will.

NRL (last round 4/8; season tally 17/24)

Penrith
Melbourne
Parramatta
North Queensland
Canberra

AFL (last round 5/9; season tally 5/9)

The splendor of a curated selection of comics in the spinner rack offsets the OCD tremors that arise from having items separated from their series companions that have remained on the shelves.

Just keep looking at the spinner rack. Reading and keeping was only part of the pastime. There’s the hours spent biking around to different outlets (book exchanges) because not every place stocked every title. Finding was a big part of the past-time.

Without going into lots of details, comic books represented a refuge of enjoyment during my childhood. They also helped nurture my love of words.

So yeah, this sparks joy.

Burger King in Germany officially win social distancing by publishing instructions to adapt their signature crowns into a social-distancing headpiece of distinction.
Brand Eating, among others is carrying the story.
They’re not being made or provided by the burger chain.
You have to make them yourself and provide your own materials once you’ve sourced the paper crowns from your friendly local outlet.
I’m also not sure if you’ll need a chiropractor and physiotherapist after you’ve worn one for any length of time.

Having seen the ridiculous social distancing head wear based on pool noodles that was initiated by the media as a stunt (surprise, surprise) last week it is encouraging to see some more creative options emerging.

This is a spinner rack.

When newsagents sold comic books, they displayed them on racks such as these.

Apart from Phantom comics, Australian newsagents no longer stock comic books.

Given that their use no longer exists, items such as this have disappeared.

A local newsagency was willing to part with their disused spinner rack, which was sitting in storage for a most reasonable price.

Now, what to fill it with…

Andrew Peterson posted a link to this rendition of his song Is He Worthy and Michael W Smith’s Agnus Dei, sung by people associated with Immanuel Africa Gospel Church.
We yearn for a world of justice and healing.
We strive for a world of justice and healing.
We trust in the one in whom justice and healing are fully found.

Is anyone worthy?
Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave
From every people and tribe
Every nation and tongue
He has made us a kingdom and priests to God
To reign with the Son
