Written by Joel Klaassen Wednesday, 05 March 2008 14:18This is about sounds that go beep in the night. Once in a while my cell phone makes beeps during the night, like a low battery warning or that I have a voice message. I would really like to turn it off, but my world requires that I be available for problems that crop up day or night.
Early Sunday we had a different beep in the night. It wouldn’t quitso I got up to investigate. After stumbling around for a while Ilearned it was our oven telling us it was malfunctioning. Error code F7.
Ireset the clear/off button and went back to bed. A few minutes later itstarted all over again, wanting us to know that it still needed help.
A quick trip down to the breaker box silenced it for good but that also means the oven doesn’t...

I started checking them out myself, but the reviews seem to indicate they all have some type of flaw or are too complicated to use when considering all of the features.
If you have lived in central Kansas all of your life and don’t venture too far from home, you probably don’t need one.
I know we could have used one in Florida a couple of years ago when we drove in circles at the Miami airport trying to get out of there and to our hotel.
After watching all of the extremely hard fouls in basketball these days I am wondering why there aren’t more intentional fouls called. The intention is for the offensive player to be fouled so hard they can’t possibly...

On New Year’s Day a light bulb came on in my head that we should trade the furniture in our two bedrooms so I could have my treadmill in the same room with the television to make the time pass by faster while working out.
It took a bit of selling to make it happen, and now that it’s been done I believe it will take more selling. I even mapped everything out on a grid to show where everything would go and how things would fit.
There seem to be a few extra chairs and such that still need to find a place, but that will come later.
I was talking with my sister Elaine on the...

Cameli’s Pizza just finished its big expansion and Friday night was the grand reopening event, which created record sales for the 12-year-old business.
Weather can create a lot of havoc. It tried to make trouble but failed as we got out before the snow on Tuesday night. The lightning and the rain while driving in the dark to the airport early Tuesday was a bit odd.
You could have read about this one in the Reader’s Digest, but it really happened here in Hillsboro.
The pastor announced on Sunday morning that the offering was going to be moved up from where it was listed in the bulletin to right after the hymn...

This is one Super Bowl where the game was better than the commercials. I thought the best ad was the toddler talking about his investments and hiring a clown from his earnings.
Ham and green bean soup is one of my favorites. It takes about three hours to finish one bowl—10 minutes to eat it and the rest of the time to pick the ham out of your teeth.
The following is from a blog by Jack Schultz, author of Boomtown USA, which I thought would be worth passing along.
