Changing the World: December 9 – Time Capsule


Today’s suggestion is a very interesting one and is all about preserving memories of our current culture by burying a time capsule. The time capsule is of course buried and dug up at some point in the future by another generation (or more) into the future.

What a great idea and I would suggest a good one for a family to do. Perhaps it could be an extension of a family history project.

A response to reading ‘365 Ways to Change the World,’ by Michael Norton

Yes – I’m a Bibliophile!!!


OK, I admit it – I’m a Bibliophile. What is a Bibliophile? Basically, a bibliophile is someone who loves books and loves collecting books. I am a book collector – but not in all topic areas. I only collect books in the areas that interest me.

I also love to read books – which I guess makes me a bookworm. Once again, I only read books in the areas that interest me.

See the article below for a discussion on Bibliophilia, etc:

So what areas interest me – well the list below is not an exhaustive list, but it does cover the main areas of my literary interests:

  • Theology

  • Church History

  • History

  • Wilderness

  • Genealogy

There are other areas into which I sometimes dip my toes, such as horticulture, cooking, etc. However, it is the above areas that really interest me.
