The era of naps endeth

I wanted to post my latest faith and family video that I did with Cheryl Wetzstein, a longtime friend and social issues reporter on the paper, that we taped last Wednesday. Heretofore I have been unable to copy and paste video to this blog and the photo is too small but this link works. You can also call up, then click on "videos" on the top right and scroll down til you see "Faith and Family."
She and I have had fun taping these things. As for everything else, nothing major - today was typical in that I was up four times last night to help Miss Veeka who gets these nasty croup attacks in the middle of the night. Fortunately I have a vaporizer steaming away by her bedside. The doctor's office said this is typical among kids under 5 that their airway passages are not developed all that well so they get blocked. Sooo, I was up a lot.
A babysitter spirited her away for several hours while I got some work done but once she was back, she refused to take a nap (this is happening more and more) and wanted to be amused all afternoon so my work came to a standstill. Couldn't go outside much as the weather is truly frigid and the pipes to my washer (which are in an outside wall) seem to have frozen.
One nice thing: I will be in a short segment on CBN (the Christian Broadcasting Network) this Friday at 4 pm. on one of their news shows. That tape may be replayed during the 700 Club as well. All this will help sell more books.
Veeka is coughing again so must go help her.

I just finished reading your book, I couldn't put it down. I've felt this way about the church for so long and didn't know that there were others who felt the same way. As Chairman of Deacons for our church I know how to feed myself but it feels like I'm on a liferaft slowly using all my rations as I float about not doing much but business as usual. I think it's time to bail.
