Odds & Ends

  • We have daffodils! On the Oregon Coast! In bloom!
  • 21% of Americans surveyed believe the lottery is a good way to save for retirement.
  • The good news: it turns out that pastors can apply for as much as three months in family leave if they need time-off to take care of a spouse, child, or parent. The bad news: once your vacation-time runs out, you don't get paid for it (and it doesn't count as sick-leave). The good news: you still have coverage for health insurance. (Talk with your conference's HR director for details.)
  • Want to make big bucks as a blogger, but you don't know how to attract readers? The Boston Globe tells you how to write an incendiary blog post.
  • In 1908, the average American washed their hair once a month. The average in 2009 was 4.59 times per week.
  • And I'll close with this quote from  Paul Koptak: "You can tell who you will be in five years by looking at the people with whom you spend time now."
