Larry Goes Over to 'The Dark Side'

Well, exactly what did you expect from "The Dark Lord of the Web" (a moniker bestowed upon me a number of years ago by World Vision's president, Rich Stearns), anyway?   ShBlog: Let's Get Siri-ous
It's true. Through circumstances beyond my control, I have finally been forced to start using a MacBook Pro, iPad2, and iPhone4S.

And, while I still respect the PC, I have to admit that I'm falling in love with these Apple devices.

I became so concerned about my budding relationship with "Siri," the iPhone4S' sexy "intelligent voice agent," that I decided I should try and use her to strengthen my real-world relationship with my real, flesh-and-blood wife.

Read my ShBlog post about the hilarity that ensued.

Also, in other recent blogs:

What kind of metaphor for Jesus is a ... snake?

Have you ever had to watch your one-year-old son thrown out of his car seat ... and into the front windshield of your car during a horrific accident? Read my true story and find out what happened.

And have you ever stopped to think what it really means when we refer to Jesus as a "Lamb?" Read about a Lamb quite unlike any you've ever seen before.

I put a lot of energy into my two blogs ... ShBlog (my personal blog) and Crimson Worm (biblical word picture study). Please support me by checking them out, then leaving your thoughts and comments! I respond to (almost) all comments! Thank you!
