04/30/11 Sermon “The Boat Talk”

I had the opportunity to preach Saturday night at the EXP service at Paramount Baptist Church. The focus: finding peace in a chaotic world. I’ve received hundreds of emails and phone calls asking if/when my talk would be available for download. Ok, not really. By “I’ve received hundreds of emails and phone calls asking” I, of course, mean “my mom asked”.

Hope to visit with you again in the future!

Walmart Prices 9 Months Ago vs. Walmart Prices Now

With all the talk in the news about food prices going up, I decided to run my own little inflation test. If you follow my blog, you’ve probably guessed where this is going: a spreadsheet’s a’comin. Back in June of 2010 I compared the prices of various items at different stores. You can find those comparisons here: Walmart vs. United Supermarkets Walmart vs. Sams Walmart vs. Target vs. United Supermarkets
