Random Thoughts

27 June 2007

A family friend who went by the name "Uncle John" once told me that I should be journaling my thoughts and ideas. He had just discovered that I was entering the seminary. He said that it would be a good idea so that I could go back to it and find sermon ideas and illustrations. I supposed he's right.

Yeah...he's right, but not just for someone in the ministry or doing any kind of public speaking. It's a good idea for anyone who was to record their thoughts and idea, or anyone who has trouble remembering their thoughts or ideas.

One of the reasons I started doing this "blogging" was just that, to record some of my thoughts and ideas. Now, four years and two months after starting a blog, I FINALLY get to my first random thoughts post. That's not to say I haven't recorded thoughts before...just nothing this random or unrelated.

My Interest is Re-Piqued

Formula 1 and Team McLaren

In high school, I developed an interest in auto racing, and this developed more in my college years. Now, in case you didn't know, I went to high school in the "deep south"—Augusta, GA. So, you're probably thinking I developed an interest in NASCAR (the premier sport of the south, it seems), and you would be wrong. And while its true I followed CART (the predecessor to IndyCar and Champ Car)—I do prefer open-wheeled racing—my real interest was with Formula 1.
