Re: Sunday School vs. Church Attendance?

Here is a real-life example from last Sunday at a COB congregation: 1- 500 2- 342 3- 390 I haven't checked in a while, but I think these percentages are similar to what my church experiences. Part of the cause of the discrepancy is the amount of "dead wood" (on the membership roll yet hav...

Re: Go-cart Gearing

JohnsKart1.jpg JohnsKart5.jpg ^A few pics from the years-ago Craigslist ad I bought this from. Thanks for the reminder about the CycleKart site. I hadn't been there in a while. :-) The Honda GX200 engine (6.5 hp) is pretty popular around here for kart racing. I should say, the knockoffs are. I get ...

Best Cell Number Search?

I was sent a mass text recently, as were close to 20 others from my church. I have most of them in my contacts list, but some are apparently newer attendees. Which website does the best job of matching the cell number you have with the correct name? I like http://spydialer.com , but it's only a litt...

Re: Guys only: What type of suit/tie/whatever do you wear for formal occassions?

I currently wear khaki pants for work, church, and most any "dressy" occasion. Ties I've worn about 3-4 times in my life, usually not by choice. I have a specific pair of shoes for Sunday services/funerals/weddings/etc. My lone button-down short-sleeve shirt serves for most dress-up events...

Re: How to track a hurricane

Here's a weather aggregator I learned about recently. Warning: It's EXTREMELY busy visually, and takes a long time to fully load.

Go-cart Gearing

This may appeal to only a small subset of you (gcdonner + ?), but here goes. Let's say I'm seriously considering running a 30-tooth (+/-) sprocket on my go-cart's axle. The driven sprocket has 10 teeth. That's a 3:1 ratio. Later this year I hope to install a "40 series" torque converter. B...

New Forum Idea

Could The Powers That Be please consider bringing back a semblance of the old MDbay? I humbly submit the following suggestions: MNbay (a new version of the old name), MennosList (Menno Simons does Craigslist, lol), and Simon Sells (Menno Simons + the Simon Says game, married beautifully via wordplay).

What is the alt right?

The following is the most intelligent analysis I've seen of the "alt-right" to this point (which isn't saying much, to be honest). The writer certainly reveals his liberal bias by disparaging views of theirs also held by mainstream conservatives, but more importantly - he uses data analysi...

Re: What are you reading?

My library sometime this year placed nonfiction audiobooks on their own rack, in front of the nonfiction book books. As I am a major fan of the genre, this pleased me greatly. I decided to pick the longest one sitting on the shelf, and consequently ended up with the 33 hour-long 'Clouds of glory : t...

Re: 107th Conservative Mennonite Conference

I've actually been thinking about going to a couple days of the BMA Convention this year... It's the same weekend as the CMC conference, so I may go to one, or neither, but I couldn't go to both. The CMC conference is a lot closer, but I'm kind of curious to hear and see some BMA people. I believe ...
