‘I Know That My Redeemer Lives’

We haven’t visited with the Lutheran Warbler for a while. She’s still singing her way through the Lutheran hymnal. This is I Know That My Redeemer Lives. by Samuel Medley in 1775. Inspired by the Book of Job, 19: 23-27.

Bonus Video: Super-Kitten

This kitten wants to be a gecko when he grows up. But maybe by then he’ll have learned to fly.

Don’t try this yourself: it’s harder than it looks.

Mommy Critters

We once had a mouse named Sleepy, who had a lot of babies. They didn’t want to be weaned. Instead, they would chase her around until they caught her, then all try to nurse at once: and wound up lifting her off the floor of the aquarium. Her only recourse was to climb up to the top of the water bottle, where they couldn’t get her, and chatter crossly at them.

The mommy critters in this video all had an easier time than that.

By Request, ‘All Creatures of Our God and King’

That last nooze post jangled me pretty bad, and I’m grateful to Joshua for this hymn request. In fact, this particular hymn, with these visuals, was exactly what I needed.

All Creatures of Our God and King, a good old-fashioned hymn performed by Fernando Ortega… with living things by God the Father.

‘How Not to Get Possums Out of Your Garbage Can’ (2016)

Convincing, isn’t it?

This is presented as a public service.

Really, you don’t need to bang on the can. If you want to avoid unpleasantness, just gently turn the can onto its side and go away. The possum (or possums) will soon get up and leave. Because usually they’re in garbage cans because they can’t get out.

‘Bread of Heaven’

There’s nothing better than a Welsh hymn, sung by a Welsh choir. This is Bread of Heaven, which we also know as Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah. Its Welsh name is Cwm Rhondda. Sung by the Morriston Orpheus Choir.

Baby Bunnies vs.Things from Venus

Sorry, but the things from Venus failed to show up (so unreliable!), so we had to wing it with just baby bunnies.

The ones hopping all around on the bed–yeah, I’ll have a few of those, please.

You Won’t Believe Your Eyes: ‘Mayor-y Poppins’

At first we–Susan, Patty, and I–thought this couldn’t possibly be Michael Bloomberg, just a totally awesome imitation. I mean, c’mon! Bloomberg would never say anything as baldly obvious as “Maybe I can make people behave!”

This May Be the Most Cringeworthy Video of Mike Bloomberg Yet

We looked it up, though–and holy cow, it really was Bloomberg! In 2006. Fourteen years ago. In 2006 he did this takeoff on Mary Poppins to, well, make light of his presidential prospects.

Thing is, that “make people behave” schtick is pure, unadulterated Bloomberg. He’s said it many times: use taxation as a means of behavior modification. The government should use taxes to encourage or deter certain behaviors. To “train” us, like Pavlov’s dogs. And what you don’t want to tax, you ban.

Mr. Bloomberg very, very much wants to “make people behave.”

He’s trying to sell himself to us as a… “moderate.”

Warning: Once you buy this item, you won’t be allowed to return it.

‘Christ Shall Have Dominion’

Sometimes people object when I post this hymn. They would rather someone other than Christ had dominion. Whom that might be, they don’t say. But the right to it belongs to Jesus Christ alone.

Christ Shall Have Dominion, sung by the Grace Community Church in San Antonio, TX. The melody, probably more widely known as Onward, Christian Soldiers, was composed by Arthur Sullivan–of Gilbert and Sullivan fame–in 1871.


Cats & Dogs Together

I’ve never had dogs and cats at the same time. It looks like fun. I did once have a large land crab and a small tortoise in the same cage, but all we got out of that was the world’s slowest romance. The crab had not the slightest interest in being caught by the tortoise. I think you need dogs and cats to get truly humorous moments.
