We recently bought a roomba 530, made by iRobot. The Amazon reviews on these things are usually good, with the exception being people complaining about the durability.

It’s official, I received a letter notifying me of my acceptance to the Ph.D. program at Southwestern Seminary. I am still awaiting the decision of the University of Bristol before I choose where to study, but it is nice to know that I will be continuing somewhere!

Well, things are moving forward here on the ecological homefront… I guess. I finally got my applications mailed off to England where I was told that good things awaited me. We’ll see. Did anyone catch the history channel show this week about the coming oil apocalypse? What about the one called “A Global Warning”? They… Read More
