Pachelbel’s Canon Played On Rubber Chicken

Even those long-suffering string players whose lives are plagued by Pachelbel’s Canon should derive some amusement from this rendition played on the rubber chicken.
The video goes for two minutes, and it’s worth staying through to the end.

Among the seventy or so new emoji that will be released later this year, there is an official one in honour of our town, Mount Gambier.

The emoji people aren’t exactly identifying it as such, but it’s pretty obvious.

Not Just For Cats…

Winter in Mount Gambier is cool.

Cold really.

And not just for cats.

For everyone.

Not Our Next VBS (via Bablyon Bee)

Babylon Bee is a satirical website. The stories there are not true.

This one about a possible Vacation Bible School made me laugh more than it maybe should have.
A little bit because I think my wife would actually sort of approve of this as a theme. A little bit.

The Aroma Of Memory

A funeral for a Christian man, whose life was the aroma of Jesus.

At the graveside his family were given sprigs of rosemary, the herb of remembrance, to cast in the grave.

Holding the herb, squeezing it gently, breathing in the herbaceous sweet woody aroma provided a pause to collect final memories of this man, and of his wife who had preceded him to heaven.

“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, … because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.”

Philippians 1:3,5

Be Ye Glad – Sunday Songs

A rendition of Be Ye Glad by Buddy Greene.
A wonderful day of worship and fellowship with God’s people.
Glad indeed.

The lyrics:
1.
In these days of confused situations.
In these nights of a restless remorse,
When the heart and the soul of the nation,
lay wounded and cold as a corpse.
From the grave of the innocent Adam,
comes a song bringing joy to the sad.
Oh your cry has been heard and the ransom,
has been paid up in full, Be Ye Glad.
Chorus
Oh, Be Ye Glad, Be Ye Glad,
Every debt that you ever had
Has been paid up in full by the grace of the Lord,
Be Ye Glad, Be Ye Glad, Be Ye Glad.
2.
From the dungeon a rumor is stirring.
You have heard it again and again.
But this time the cell keys are turning,
and outside there are faces of friends.
And though your body lay weary from wasting,
and your eyes show the sorrow they’ve had.
Oh the love that your heart is now tasting
has opened the gate, Be Ye Glad.
Chorus.
3.
So be like lights on the rim of the water,
giving hope in a storm sea of night.
Be a refuge amidst the slaughter,
for these fugitives in their flight.
For you are timeless and part of a puzzle.
You are winsome and young as a lad.
And there is no disease or no struggle,
that can pull you from God, Be Ye Glad.
Chorus.
