• Thank you to all who have been praying for our housing situation. We received word yesterday that an offer we submitted on Monday was accepted. Estimated date of possession is about August 20th. We'll need to put in an air conditioner (previous was dismantled by copper thieves), appliances, and some paint.

• I also picked up a bit of a cold yesterday -- but I'm feeling a lot better today -- although I sound a lot worse.

• We got adventuresome tonight and decided to try out the buffet line at the Indian casino down the road. Wow -- the casino was packed but I've never seen a gloomier group of gamblers and employees in my life. I'd have to say that it was the most unhappy place on earth. We left and found a nice little Chinese restaurant.

• I discovered today that they sell frozen durian at the Lee Lee Oriental Market in Chandler. At least it wasn't as fresh as the batch my friend Timothy Friend found in Stockton the other day. When we were staying at the Christian Guesthouse in Bangkok they had signs posted notifying people that they were not to bring durian into the building -- and certainly not into the rooms. You can't blame them.

• For all of you Puget Sound folks experiencing heat shock I just want you to that it is 8:30 p.m. and 102°. I'm sitting outside on the patio. Once you're conditioned you can take a field trip to Arizona. You get used to it -- global warming and all that.
