Bruschetta with Ricotta, Honey, & Lemon Zest

This is from the wonderful Food52.com site.


I've made this three or four times now and you should, too.  It is one of my new favorite things to make and eat.  It's easy and an ingenious blend of flavors.  Do it.  You can thank me later. 

Yes, I snagged the photo AND the recipe from their site.

Walking in Light

As I was reading through some Bible passages about the Holy Spirit this morning, I re-stumbled upon a morsel of illuminating commentary in the footnote for I John 1:7.  It reads:

Through the Word of God the indwelling Holy Spirit shows the Christian that he (1) still possesses an old nature (v.8), and (2) needs the forgiveness of his sins (vv. 9-10).  The blood of Christ is the divine provision for both. 
To walk in the light is to live in fellowship with the Father and the Son.  Sin interrupts fellowship but cannot change the relationship.  Confession restores fellowship and immediate confession keeps the fellowship unbroken. 

 My Bible of choice is the Oxford New International Version Scofield Study Bible, the 1984 printing of the 1967 edition.

LORAN Tower Demolition...

...because I like it when stuff blows up and/or falls down. 



This was a 1320 ft. tower located in Alaska.  I saw this first in RadioWorld Online, one of the trade journals that I read.  Sometimes.  You can read more about it here if you like to know about stuff that blows up and/or falls down.

Sharpshooting

Interesting article from Sky News about a British soldier who recently set a remarkable, if somewhat grisly marksmanship record in Afghanistan.  This guy's story is impressive.

To compensate for the distance, he aimed 6 ft. higher, and 20 in. to the left.  Here is his rifle:
