Testing this blog once again

Is there something wrong with Blogger? Yesterday I tried to post an update to my blog, but I could not get anything to work. Maybe it has been fixed since then. So far, it seems to be working OK.

Since I last posted here, I have bought a Sumsung Tablet. The reason for the purchase was because my Kindle bit the dust. It went to sleep and never woke up. The good thing about the Kindle was it had 3G capability, meaning I could download a book from anywhere. With my new Samsung tablet, I have to be within a WiFi zone to download.

I recently finished reading a novel (for the Methodist book club) titled Defending Jacob. It was a long novel, and by the time I got to the end I wished I had used the reading time on another book. I am in the midst of reading several other books at this time. One book is 50 Simple Questions for Every Christian by Guy P. Harrison. This is a collection of 50 essays each dealing with a question pertaining to religion. Three of the questions are: What Are Miracles?, Why Isn't Everyone a Christian?, Will the End Times Ever End? How would you answer some of the questions posed here? Check it out from your library and see for yourself.

Another book I have just started is The Cure for Fundamentalism: Why the Bible Cannot Be the "Word of God."

I found one geocache yesterday. It is close to an area in which I have been walking lately. That was the first time I went geocaching in several weeks. Now I need to check to see if this blog will save.
