The Top 10 Good Things About This Half-A-Degree Weather We’ve Been Having

It’s been a while since we’ve had a Top 10 list here, so I figure it’s about time. Plus, we’ll have better attitudes about the weather since this list can help us keep this cold spell in perspective. So here is…

The Top 10 Good Things About This Half-A-Degree Weather We’ve Been Having:

(10) No need for hats, scarves, or gloves. I mean, you’re instantly numb anyway, so what’s the point?

(9) Even people who have to use their fingers to count can tell you the temperature.

(8) The mercury in thermometers gets a break.

(7) Driving over frozen puddles. Nuff said.

(6) Even a light dusting of snow doesn’t melt. And winter without snow is like summer without sun.

(5) Good health–it’s too cold to get a cold. Even germs are staying at home by the fireplace.

(4) Eating ice cream actually warms you up.

(3) It shows that global warming is not yet as severe as it seemed.

(2) It’s funny to see the Ocean Pines ducks and geese sitting on a giant block of ice. They’re goofy looking.

(1) How often do you get to spit and it turns to ice in midair?

nathanhyde.com

As you might have noticed, nathanhyde.wordpress.com now redirects you to nathanhyde.com. For simplicity’s sake, I bought the domain nathanhyde.com, so either one works now.

Sorry for the confusion!

The Pohanka Customer Service Saga Continues

Yesterday I wrote a post on my now-defunct MySpace blog about the incredible customer service experience I had yesterday at Pohanka in Salisbury. It got even better today.

My phone rang this morning and it was one of the customer service reps from Pohanka. They were calling to see how everything was going with the car, find out how my experience was with them yesterday, and see if there’s anything more they can do to help.

We need to get their managers and employees on board at our church!

Go Brian, It’s Your Birthday! (Or Maybe Not)

By the way, I want to give a shout out to Brian Bailey, author of The Blogging Church.  I emailed and told him what I was looking for in a blog, and he recommended WordPress.  Good call, Brian!

For anyone interested in blogging, The Blogging Church has a ton of great info about it, even if your blog has nothing to do with church.

Welcome to the new blog site!

Thanks for following me here! WordPress allows bloggers to do more of the stuff I wanted in a blog. For instance, everyone can now respond to entries by posting comments–and you don’t have to set up an account or anything.  Just click on “Comments” below the post.  All you have to do is enter your name and email address–and don’t worry, your email address won’t show on the site.

Plus, MySpace just had a lot more stuff than I used. They had all these things I didn’t want or need, but didn’t have some of the basics I was looking for in a blog. I also didn’t like the fact that every time I went to MySpace, all these pictures of scantily-clad girls kept showing up on the screen. It kind of goes against the message I’m preaching a week from Sunday!

So anyway, thanks for following me here. I’m hoping that I can figure out how you can subscribe to this blog, so that new entries can automatically be sent to your email inbox. When I figure it out, I’ll let you know.

I’ll probably change the presentation of the blog once in a while, but for now, I’m digging the ancient text look.
