Bits and pieces, 2/09/05

In Memoriam: Karl Haas, 1913-2005. The man who escaped Nazi Germany, came to America and began one of the most popular classical radio programs ever, passed away on Sunday, February 6, 2005, at the age of 91.

Haas, who began each of his cleverly-titled programs with his trademark, “Hello everyone,” did much to help the cause of classical music appreciation. His “Adventures in Good Music” were charmingly presented and extremely accessible (even if they at times over-simplified certain aspects of the music).

Haas will be missed. His timeless programs, however, will surely continue to be heard on classical music stations for years to come.


You’ve got to be kidding: a 4-year-old drives his mother’s car to the video store 1/4 mile up the street, and back, at 1:30 am. OK...his mom shows him how to drive, he leaves his home by himself at 1:30 in the morning, he actually maneuvers the car for ½ mile total...ohhh, boy.


GBC prayer for today: I like what John Schroeder says today at the GodBlogCon prayer blog:

We do not need to intercede with the Lord for His help with our plans. Rather, we need to actively seek His plans and appropriate them for ourselves.

The way I interpret that is: if we are seeking Him, following the “signs,” and acting on the way it appears given that things should go (according to what we know of His truth), then we will be doing our part in His service...helping to bring about the Kingdom. (Someone please correct me if my theology is off :-) )


I promise I'll get to comments soon!
