We took our rental car back to the airport today. We had rented from Fox Rent a Car, a fairly new discount company, and had a very positive experience.

Renting a car at Sky Harbor International Airport is interesting. Renters are bused to an off-site not-so-mini-terminal where business is conducted. It's different than any off-site set-up I've seen -- and extremely efficient. ~ link

I'm always thankful for your varied interests. This link to Opera United may be just the ticket for me. I've been struggling with finding a way to post sermons and worship services on our church website as streaming audio. I cannot figure it out. BUT, I'm familiar with Opera and Opera United sounds like something I need to look more closely at. Thanks!

The Lutheran Church to which we belonged in UT also joined the LCMC a few years ago. That church was evangelical, and the pastors we knew were grounded well in Scripture. I wonder how much the LCMC has spread? Thanks for the interesting news.
