Janie and I went home by way of Fort Worth. It was about 30 miles out of the way but Cabelas is worth it. I enjoyed walking around and shopping. I bought a hat, shirt, soup mix, and 50 feet of cord. We made it home about 4:00 or so. There was a problem with the copy machine at the church, a paper jam. Janie and I went over to fix it and to take care of a few things. It was a good jam, requiring the removal of 4 screws to clear it. Its all fixed now and new toner is on its way.
The data base software that I wrote for the MBA of Texas needs an overhaul. It is very major and I will need a whole day of uninterrupted focus to get that done. I want to develop a web based database so that churches can go Online and maintain their information themselves. That is going to be a big job but one I think well worth the effort. This year the churches can fill out their forms online but so far out of 285 churches only 11 have done so.
I was talking to a pastor today who said it won't be long before churches will have to accept credit cards. I can just picture a credit card swiping station in our foyer. I am afraid he is right about that. Cash will one day be a thing of the past. It is not far off that you will be buying things at a garage sale and paying for them through your cell phone. The picture is of Janie holding number 9 with her parents looking on. God bless you.
