Hmm, so what has happened of late? I went to the doc and got my ear checked out . I got some good drugs, and it is definatly feeling better. I didn’t miss out on any diving because of my ear either, because the weather was so bad none of us went diving. I set up one of my experiments in the rain. We all got very, very wet outside setting up the experiments. To the extent that I think I will wear a wetsuit next time. Rain jackets don’t help when water runs off the roof down your sleeves.
This morning I went to the church down the street. It’s a United Church of Christ, which certainly isn’t the same as the Church of Christ. It was a what I would think of as “High Church” with vestments, vestibules, ceremony, etc. It never occurs to me how little ceremony our church has until I have something to compare it to. Still, the people at the church were very friendly and welcoming, and the church itself was quite a pretty building. I feel a bit sorry for them though…they are so few. I guess a location on the end of an island with no parking is a little out of the way. A certain proverb about camels and the eye of a needle might be appropriate too, considiring the average income out here. I wish them luck growing though, because they were nice to me and gave me cookies.
On a completely different topic, my oceanography textbook has examples using play dough…play dough! If all my textbooks were like that I would think things were to easy. But as it is, its just a nice change from the rest. Whew!
