hmmm .....

Here you go... I like these questions every so often.
(not too often you bible college freaks)

Christdot :: Christ. Period.: "This is a question I've considered off-and-on for some time. If God is eternal, existing outside of time, can we pray regarding past events? As a practical example, if we happen to pass by a car accident, might we not pray, 'Lord, I pray no one was seriously injured?'

Now, I recognize that the past is a closed book. What has happened has happened, and cannot be changed. If the past had been different, then this present would not exist.

However, God exists outside time, if I understand correctly. Could not, then, He hear His people praying 10 years from now for some event that is occuring today, and answer their prayers in the future by acting in our present? Perhaps, what actually did happen in the past may have been affected by God's knowing that, in the future, someone would pray regarding the event? Perhaps, when a car accident is happening, God knows that I will pass by it later, and hears my future prayer that no one was seriously injured, and answers that future prayer by saving those involved now from serious harm?

What think ye?"

Three Dentists and the tooth

For starters the internet at work has not been working at all.
At one point today 46 kb/s dial up is 56.6 for Pete's sake!!! so what I'm trying to say... posting at work takes up much needed bandwidth.

Anti plug of the day These guys suck.

Anyhow... aside from the post below the tooth has been the only lost of income source of fun in my life the last few days.

Question: How many Dentists can you see and still have 0 work done.
Answer: So far..... three

I've seen the Hack, the Nice guy that dosen't do root canals, and the specialist that gave me another option..... Ok now part of it is my fault because I hate needles... so NEXT Tuesday I will get my root canal done... and be put almost out... woo!
(and for the low low price of $800 - 1100 dollars)

But I guess if my heart and hips don't work, I might as well have a mouth that does

Ok, three guesses who else will be back too :)

No really.... not dead

So my world seems to be revolving around my tooth right now.

Not really that bad, but every time I eat I am very aware that it is NOT in good shape.
So where do I begin...?

I went to the dentist and he told me what I knew - giant chip, abscess nerve. ($65)
then the new information began.
I have two choices:
1) pull it out.. $90
2) root canal.. $800

Now my friend Janice (who is a Dental Assistant) said that she feels for me, but gave me all the reasons I should look at having the root canal. Things like the teeth on either side will move once there is a space and if a bridge was needed later it would cost more.

Guess I should have stayed in radio where I had dental benifits......... HA! (actually there might be more on that later.)

So ok, if that wasn't enough.... the Dentist game me a precription for something call Clindmycin (that could be off by a few letters - because I can't read the writing or pronounce it) (don't know what that will cost) but here's the thing... my cousin, Cam, had this very stuff days ago... similar tooth problem. It gave him chest pains and his Doctor told him that is was way too strong of stuff for a tooth problem.

So I figured I better call my doctor to see what this stuff mean to me. But aparently on Thursday's they don't answer the phone... tried the alternate number, but that isn't manned until 5:30...

guess I'll try again tomorrow.... maybe my tooth will stop hurting by then.

Well actually I have found a good temporary solution. I numb it with clove oil and then pack the hole wiht ortho wax. Throbs a bit... but not a sharp pain.

So that's the way this week is going.... forget what I ate for lunch.

What Happened to Tim Good's Tooth.

(oh and if you have an extra 800 bucks lying around.... )

13 February 2006

I'm not dead.

Ok, so aparently if I don't post by 11:00 on Monday after a weekend of being away people start emailing. I should have all kinds of things to write, but to be honest I just feel too tired to put proper sentences together.

I did each luch today.... sort of forgot about that. Onion Soup with a nice sandwich.

Today was the day of the toothache. I guess that is why I am so tired. It seems that tooth I chiped back in.... umm August (doh) is not in good shape. I guess it might be time to see a dentist... yeah I know.

Other wise all other information will have to wait until tomorrow.

see you then

An "one for all" post

Ok, for starters. There was no WTGHFL today because A) I was out of the office and B) I have no camera today.... so lunch was sucky (did I eat lunch?)

I should have taken a picture of Breakfast but I didn't.

I'm off to Muskoka Woods again for the weekend... there will be a lack of posting until Sunday night at least.

Have a good weekend...

This is kind of cool. The system that we designed and installed at Compass Point Bible Church has a featured article done on it in Professional Sound Magazine.

Yeah Yake Systems !


It's kind of crazy around here I may not have time to post on lunch

but this was breakfast.............

What Tim Good Had For Breakfast

that is Grilled Cheese with ham... some fruit and applesauce

It Would Be an Honor to be Shot by Jack Bauer

Here's the fact. I read web sites... and watch little TV. The only show that I consistently watch is 24... thanks to Jon and Marty (when business meetings at The Gig go too long)
There are actually a few things I hate about the show... can you drive anywhere in LA in 20 min at 8:00 in the morning... let alone zip to three different places in under an hour and save the world
So for all you 24 fans I found this funny, I hope you do too.
(if you're not a 24 fan... WTGHFL will take place between 1:00 and 2:00 -- oh wait that was a 24 inside joke... never mind)

branthansen's Xanga Site:
"Years from now, scholars will be debating:
Did '24" A) just flat-out rock, or B) what?

I submit that "A" will ultimately win the day. "24" kicks rear end, and then takes names. My name. It kicks my rear end, and then takes my name, Brant Hansen.

My rear end kicked, and my name thusly taken, I then continue to mull why it is that "24" is so awesomely awesome.

I think it's the writing and editing. It's taut. No fat in show. Where another show might establish with a three-minute dialogue, "24" uses a mere facial gesture.

Scholars will also be hosting symposia, submitting papers, all discussing this question: Did Jack Bauer pretty much rock the casbah?
Their answer? Why, yes. Yes, he did.

By 10:39 a.m., Jack Bauer did that. And he did a whole bunch of other stuff, too. He did it without a bathroom break or well-balanced breakfast. Yes, he’s courageous, intelligent, resourceful, but above all, Jack Bauer is busy.

Frankly, there's only one metaphor to describe CIA Agent Jack Bauer's counter-terrorism busy-ness: That metaphor would be a bee.

Greatest TV drama ever.

In other news, "Lost" is stupid."

Looking for a deal

So sunday night Doug and Gisela had a bunch of us over for a "Superbowl" party. I put that in quotes because you have never been to a party with fewer football fans.... but I digress

In coversation (something about Staples and better published prices) the site Red Flag Deals came up. I said I would send Doug the link, but this will work just as well for everyone.
I know he will see this because he, like eveyone, wants to know what I will have for lunch tommorrow

So here is said link... enjoy the deals

RedFlagDeals.com - Canadian Deals, Coupons, and Freebies!


Before I get to the main event, I should mention that Linda had an awsome breakfast today... but it was gone before I thought to take a picture (this could be a problem with lunch someday... I mean how often do you hear - "Lunch is served" and think, "now, where is my camera?"


What Tim Good Had For Lunch

This is Vegtable soup with cheese and crackers, some apple and carrot cake for dessert.

The Giant Snow Bank

For those of you that don't live in the Ontario area you may not be aware of the snow that we have been getting. It came down fast and heavy and causeed all sort of trouble.

Saturday night Brea, Janice and I had the fun of driving home from Muskoka Woods when the majority of the snow was coming down. 5 hours to drive a normally 3 hour trip.

But, all that to say that there is a lot of snow on the ground.
To give you an idea here is a picture out front of the shop.

So now... if you are ready here's the link to Vineland Ontario and the Giant Snow Bank that is out front of of my parents House

see Dad, I do read your email

Ok, so on day two I have hit a snag.

I don't think I will go into it here... but, there was a bit of an emergency and with good reason, I will not be provided a lunch.

BUT have no fear.
I will not have this adventure stop before it really begins - and afterall I do have to eat.

so, as promised on a daily basis is:

What Tim Good Had For Lunch

This is a Quizno's 9" Black Angus... I followed it with a Pepsi Lime (no picture included)

for anyone that is concerned about the lack of real posting... sorry I had a full weekend and just wasn't at my computer. Real posting to return soon

3 February 2006


Those close to me know I have it pretty good at work. Not in big drug plan - profit sharing - don't-really-work-cause-we're-union kind of way.

But every day I get lunch made just for me.
(well me and the boss)

Now, because everyone does not exactly understand what this means I give you...

What Tim Good Had For Lunch Today!

Ok I know this is not exactly deep, spirtiual, imformative blogging here... but it makes me laugh. and you know you want to come back to see what I get tomorrow.

(I have to get on Google's radar somehow)

Today's "People Who Are Stupid"

Ahh, actually today it is ........ME.

Aparetenly if you take:

Stagg Chili and heat if for 4:00 it will be really, really hot.


I would show you picture of my tounge.... but it burned off.

What's New

Ok, so it's been a couple of busy nights and I figured it is not the best idea to spend a lot of paid work time updating. But rest assured I did not stop living for the none posting time.

Last night, thanks to a $400 gift certificate a group of us (mostly from The Gig) went to Toronto to dine at Pure Spirits Oyster Bar and Grill in the Distillery District. Whoa good eating... and a cool place to go tol. But bring a rich friend of someone that used to work for a radio station promotions department :) By the way... even to walk around the Distillery District is a cool experience, if you've got nothing to do in T.O. some day.

Tuesday night Rob, Marty and I went to Faith Family Church in Beamsville to give a presentation on all that is going on with The Gig. They are a small church, but they want to support us - very cool and some good discussion... Plus I got to drive Marty and Sara's VW Golf. With no working speedometer I made it to and home in record time :)

Laundry tonight.... I'm sure I'll have much more to post on.
