HAPPY LEAP YEAR!
Hey, everyobdy! Welcome back!
As you can see, I’ve revamped a little. Unfortunately, a lot of great stuff got deleted in the clean-up, but it had to be done. Please don’t assume, if your posted comments and responses got erased, that it was because they weren’t appreciated, because they were (and are!) The overwhelming positive response to this blog has been amazing, and there are definitely some great thinkers out there. Some of you I know, some of you I think I know, and some of you I’m sure that I definitely don’t know, but I hope that you’re all still on board.
The original playlist is back, but it shuffles now, so each time that you log on you will hear a different tune. There’s a little bit of everything here (as most of you know, my tastes are rather eclectic, to say the least)…worship music, gospel, rock, pop, country, spiritual, rap, folk, R&B, broadway, classical…both Christian and secular…all positive…sort of the soundtrack of my life.
Each song is meaningful and uplifting to me in some way, and I hope that you enjoy the whole collection. I certainly enjoyed compiling it for you. You can stay logged on and have hours of music, or you can turn down the volume on your computer while you blog, or even pause the player. I welcome your feedback on any of the songs.
Hey, did you know what every year that is not a leap year is called a “common year”?
From Wikipedia: A leap year (or intercalary year) is a year containing one or more extra days (or, in case of lunisolar calendars, an extra month) in order to keep the calendar year synchronised with the astronomical or seasonal year. For example, February would have 29 days in a leap year instead of the usual 28. Seasons and astronomical events do not repeat at an exact number of full days, so a calendar which had the same number of days in each year would over time drift with respect to the event it was supposed to track. By occasionally inserting (or intercalating) an additional day or month into the year, the drift can be corrected. A year which is not a leap year is called a common year.
So, if every non-leap year is a common one, then a year like this one is apparently UNCOMMON! That is prophetically significant for me today. I’m expecting great...UNCOMMONLY GREAT...things in 2008! How about you?
