  • Would you be really annoyed if I told you I had the opportunity to hear Barkay speak yesterday but instead went out for Chicken Wings with my sister?

  • Once again the Northwest misses out. I guess I'll just have to listen to Gabriel's "friend" Dr. Wayne House here at the seminary. He has a knack for being "freinds" with anyone he has 1: Ever met, and 2: Is relatively famous. :-)
