RIP Captain BJ Hunnycutt
Today, we said goodbye to Mr. Hunny. His name described his personality perfectly. A mixture between the Winnie the Pooh spelling of “Hunny” and the character B.J. Hunnicutt in M*A*S*H, Hunnycutt had a voracious appetite and a lovable, mild mannered personality. There was nothing he enjoyed more than a long nap and McDonalds’ French fries. He lived almost twice as long as his brother’s and sisters due to the cushy life his mom and dad provided for him. We will miss him.
Drink of the Week:
This is like the comfort food of beers for me. An old standby, a very balanced, slightly sweet thirst quencher, this is the beer that I drink the most. When I have a bad week and don’t feel like trying something new, or we are in a rush to get to a friend’s house and want to pick up something that everyone will enjoy, this is the beer we turn to.
Blog of the week:
Preston Yancey with When we are all Working with Seals and Polar Bears
Preston discusses translations of the Bible into native languages and how we are all both translators and working from translations:
“They had no conception of forgiveness. None. There wasn’t a word in their language that meant to forgive. They knew about retribution, about revenge, but not about forgiveness.” She leaned back in her chair. “But as we were talking with them, we came to understand that for them, to hold a grudge was to string a person up in their hearts. That’s how they phrased it they strung people up in their hearts.” She offered a small shrug. “So we introduced the concept of forgiveness as the act of unstringing a person in your heart. Loosing the chains. Freeing them.” She smiled. “So when they think of Jesus and His power to forgive, they have a visual sense, an icon that they were once strung up in the heart of God, but now they have been set free.”

Sail by Awolnation
I love discovering new and unique music styles that I enjoy. The video, however, is pretty much one of my worst nightmares.
