Letter to the Chief Executive of Jet petrol stations

Dear the Chief Executive of Jet petrol stations, Re: Mashed Potato in Rayleigh I recently visited the Jet petrol station in Rayleigh in order to buy a packet of mashed potato. Upon taking it to the checkout the cashier was unable to scan the item and the scanning device made a negative-sounding ‘beep’. Unfortunately, as…

The world's most unpopular range of ecclesiastical clipart

Next week, all being well, I hope to launch a new ‘clipart’ section on the CartoonChurch.com site. This comes about as a result of my market research, ie chatting to people at the Christian Resources Exhibition, where a good number of people told me how difficult it was to find good clipart for their church…

Simpsons air freshener

Simpsons air freshener

In today’s post I may or may not have received an air freshener depicting popular cartoon character and worshipper Ned Flanders. The gift may or may not be related to my secret activity on April the 24th. I’m sorry to keep the whole thing shrouded in mystery like this, but there may or may not…

Does our Archbishop need to work on his communication?

“…he does have a gift bordering on genius for calling a spade a uni-handled, longitudinal, horticultural implement … He should spend a week in a tabloid newsroom and learn how to sharpen up his prose.” says Richard Morrison in the Times “Dr Williams, and I hope he will apply Christian forgiveness to me for saying…

Typedrawing

If you have a bit of weekend time to idle away why not have a play on Typedrawing. I’m sure there must be a really really useful design application for this, but I can’t think what it is.

New Archbishop of York

So the new Archbishop of York is John Sentamu. I remember Ship of Fools saying he looked a bit like Graham Norton, but I can’t see it myself.

The caravan, in case you were wondering, is a diminutive mustard model (circa 1969), with white walls and beech floor on the inside. Sounds a bit…

What can we do with your feed?

No, not an agricultural question, but rather one raised by Adrian in the comments below when he said: “Ultimately if your RSS feed is published on your website you are asking for it to be included in all kinds of services both christian and not so I am surprised by this level of concern.” Hmmm….

Adrian, seriously, what is going on?

Adrian, seriously, what is going on?

My post and the entire conversation that’s been going on about Christian blogs obviously went entirely unheeded. The new Truth Laid Bear site is there with the ‘Blogdom of God’ on it (Click ‘Blogdom of God’ under ‘Jump to community’). But, oh dear oh dear. The list of blogs not only includes ALL of our…

Archbishop bashes blogs

Well, something like that. Thinking Anglicans has links to some of the reports about the Archbishop of Canterbury’s media lecture last night. The Guardian has the full text of the speech here. Andrew Brown was there, furthering his career. I would love to say more, but I am going to be very very good. We…
