My Modern Mennonite Neighbors

January 30, 2013


The cooperative I moved into when I got married recently is exclusively Mennonite (w my wife being the one exception).

Facebook Conversations and Disconnect

January 25, 2013


I TRY to only view Facebook a few times a week (more if someone sends me a message through it) because I think it’s pretty stoopid. Often helpful yes, but still stoopid.
