"Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset." Saint Francis De Sales

My Slow Takes (Vol. 71)

1. Saturday afternoon was different in that both the Richmond Spiders and the Fighting Irish played at the same time. I kept going back and forth from one game to the other. When it got to the fourth quarter the excitement began. Yes, It was intense but fun to watch. Two great games and two great wins. 
Spiders overall is 5-3. The Irish Lads at 7-0. 

2. Dee and I have found her Mom’s new home.The staff, facility and amenities are excellent. We have started the process and should be able to get her Mom moved in November.

3. On Sunday Todd, his buddy Patrick and I moved the couch and some other furniture from my mother-in-laws apartment to our garage. Tuesday, Stephen and I finished the move. Dee and I finished moving the boxed items Thursday night. The entire process has been successful.

4. Russell Charles Means died on October 22, 2012. He was an Oglala Sioux who portrayed Chingachgook in “The Last of the Mohicans” and starred in “Pathfinder.” I loved his character in both movies but enjoyed “The Last of Mohicans,” probably because of my interest in the French and Indian War period. There is detailed information about him at Wikipedia.

5. “The Call of Jeremiah,” was Mondays article by Tuck at Denbigh Church. In his discussion of the issues Jeremiah’s faced while following God, Tuck makes an interesting point.  
“Whatever our struggles and hardships, we are not alone. God is with us, God’s Spirit is in us, and God’s people are beside us. God never promises that we will not struggle; He does promise that we will never have to struggle alone!”
Thank you Tuck.

6. Apple introduces the iPad Mini, a new iMac and a new MacBook Pro. Read about it and view photos at USA Today.

7. Hurricane Sandy is on her way north. For those of us on the East Coast, make sure you are ready. Lord help us all to get through the storm. (See number 5 above.)
