Fishing on Little River Lake

Great day fishing on Little River Lake today. Absolutely perfect weather for it. There were four of us, two in each boat. The losers had to buy lunch. We lost. But then, I’d happily buy twice the money to eat at American Hero, so I’m not sure who really lost there. All the same, next time we will win and have Shawn and Seth buy us lunch.

Seth’s contribution to his team. “He’ll be fine”, said Seth, “Look, he’s swimming away. Oh, look he’s showing us his belly, isn’t that cute”.

Oxygen – New album from Lincoln Brewster

Oxygen - Lincoln BrewsterA new album from Lincoln Brewster released yesterday called Oxygen.  I’ve had the chance to listen to a pre-release version of it for a few weeks now (thanks Shannon!). It’s pretty high energy from beginning to end, with plenty of Brewster’s signature guitar licks.

It’s a polished release and I like all the songs, but there’s a couple of songs that I really like on the album.

The first one is There Is Power. This is definitely one I plan on using at STORYCHURCH sometime.

He does a really good version of Worship Central’s Let It Be Known, swapping out the keys parts for guitars. I still would rather have the original version though.

Love Sinking Ships.  Great melody. Great message. I don’t know if it would work congregationally for us, but I like the song personally.

Whole Again (Come Alive) is just a beautiful song. Yes, I said beautiful. I can’t think of another word to describe it. It makes me want to learn piano and sing my heart out.

Review: The Hundred-Foot Journey

100ftmovieLast night, Liz and I got the opportunity to see an advanced screening of the new Helen Mirren movie, The Hundred-Foot Journey (thanks Starla).

I had no idea what to expect – I was just happy about what getting out for a wee date.

It turns out the movie was very good. It follows an Indian family who decide to leave India for Europe.  They end up in the south of France (because London was too cold) and set up an Indian restaurant.

The problem is, it’s right across the street from a posh Michelin Star restaurant.

A clash of class and cultures ensue while they try to make things work, determined not to have to move again.

Great story + great cast, make a great humorous and feel-good movie.

It opens August 8th in the US.
