34 Years Old + 251 Days


We were at a dedication today. What is a dedication you ask. Well the parents of the child, baby, that was being dedicated have their beliefs, like all of us. They are not however "stamping" one religion on the child. When the kid grows old he can then choose the path that he wishes to walk himself. What the parents will do is enable him best they can to find the true path.

Large on the interest radar today was the news that Builin Blasta has opened up today. This was of course previously that I used to own. It was strange to tell the truth. I set up the business, it failed. Now someone else is taking over. Thats kinda what it feels like.

    The dedication sounds neat. I've been pondering about whether to do something like that or not with my own son. So many things I've never thought about before.

  2. Well, I am playing major catch-up with Donals blog again, it seems I go ages without reading blogs, then spend a short burst reading loads of them!

Anyway, the dedication was class, really great ceremony ... in fact i think we might've been in Bia Blasta for it.
