Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2020-116: New Terms: TOG

I am getting old.  That changes how I look at things.  One of the advantages is that I cannot be expected to do as much yard work as when I was younger.  I have begun to notice that my energy is about the same level as the tank on my lawn mower.  This has created a new metric for me:  TOG.  It stands for Tank of Gas. 

TOG is a measurement of how much work I can get done in a day at my age.  I can tell when the lawn mower is getting low because I am feeling the same.  For non-mowing tasks I can use, TOGE, Tank of Gas Equivalent.

I can keep going after that but it has a diminishing return.  Also the long term effects discourage getting carried away.  My formula has become one TOG earns one NAP. 

I was never big on yard work.  Now I have a reason.  I am not being lazy, just shepherding my resources.

  1. It's aggravating, but all we can do is adjust.

    1. Ah, the Golden Years. See what you have to look forward to.

      Grace and peace
