I stayed home from my normal employment and grouted the floor today. I needed to get it done and just ran out of time over the weekend.

Tonight my younger daughter started talking about body piercing. I don't know how it came up. I think I may have walked in on an existing conversation. Anyway, even though she declared that she had no intention to get anything pierced, other than her already pierced earlobes, she challenged me to show why piercings, other than women's earlobes, are not acceptable for Christians. Both of my daughters like to give me such challenges. I confess I had to do some homework. I found two very good articles and I highly recommend them to anyone who may have to answer a similar challenge. The addresses to these articles are below.

There are many reasons why I love living in South Louisiana. One reason is all the good music. This is a good month for good music in South Louisiana.
