"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Helaman 5:12

One red paperclip

As a fan of the paperclip I couldn't help notice this story:

Man turns paper clip into house

Taking a paper clip and turning it into a house sounds like a cheesy magic trick or a phony instance of resourcefulness on the 1980s TV show "MacGyver."

By Brian Bergstein Associated Press
People work on the house that Kyle MacDonald bartered a red paper clip for in Kipling, Saskatchewan, Canada. MacDonald will take ownership of the three-bedroom, 1,100-square-foot building Wednesday.

Kyle MacDonald, however, has pulled it off.
One year ago, the 26-year-old blogger from Montreal set out to barter one red paper clip for something and that thing for something else, over and over again until he had a house.

Read the rest.

Way to go Kyle!

This is an awesome story. Fortunately, for people who would like to do the same sort of thing without going to all the trouble of setting up and maintaining their own blog and what not, there's already a website that will let you do this sort of stuff.

It may or may not be what you're looking for, but could be usefull:

I've been on a bit of a sabbatical with my blog, as well. I have had many ideas...but not much time to write them up.

BTW..John R....we are the same age...I think I might have mentioned that before...not sure.
