The fish which tried to take a bite out of Cheryl and then me yesterday morning has been identified as a Picasso Triggerfish. I suspect that since the tide was so low we were perceived as being too close to its nest -- even though we were surface snorkeling. I still have teeth marks on my leg.

Quotable: "Christians don't like other Christians who sin differently from them." ~ Phil Cooke
...Instead, the churches that have influence within our online culture look at ministry differently. They assume the people they’re trying to reach are online. They assume the people who are connected to their ministry are online. Rather than looking at the Web as an add-on, they consider their web strategy as a fully-integrated part of how they help people take steps toward Christ. They are a church online as much as they are a church in a building located on the corner of First and Main. ~ Tony MorganSusan Boyle has gone on to the next round. ~ link
