It is late, and I have been at Deanery Synod even though I am not a member of Deanery Synod. Suspicious.
Here are some end-of-Tuesday links for you:
An open letter to Subway about their cheese, from ‘Left handed toons by right handed people’. (Scroll down the page to see the September 10th blog entry too).
Man in Kenya draws his cartoons on a bus stop shelter. Not dissimilar to the way I started, though mine were on a door at Bible College.
Rev. Gerald Ambulance is now on Facebook. Rev. Gerald is an example to us all.
The top 10 religious blogs, according to Iain Dale, one of the UK’s top politics bloggers. The list is totally unrelated to the top 10 that I would choose, but interesting nevertheless. I suspect most of the religion-related blogs that I would see as being good ones are more or less unnoticed by the mainstream blogging world.
Lastly, I am proud to hit the Google top spot for ‘Rubbish Christian Blog‘. Somebody has to be there.

John Davies has now begun his two month walk along the approximate route of the M62 motorway. You can follow his travels on his M62 walk blog here. I have mentioned this before, but thought I’d mention it again as a reminder now he has started.
This post explains why he is doing it. Do add the blog to your feed reader and send him an encouraging comment every now and then.

Make sure your Mother’s Day flowers are fair trade
Because a lot of people are exploited in the growing of many of them. Thanks to Mad Priest for sending me this. His take on the subject is here.
Really good blog by someone working in the stately home industry. Found this via Farli.
For the times you need a game to play with a group. A bit over-adsensed, but useful.
The LA Fire Department Flickr photos
Fires and rescues and all sorts. Contains a few pictures that some might find upsetting, but not many.
Man who posts his art on his front door
He sells it to passers-by.
Church to honor turkey hit by car
It was a loyal congregation member apparently:
The turkey, which died last week after being hit by a car, regularly attended Sunday services and greeted people as they arrived

I have not been well again today so have not had any energy to post anything constructive. Here’s what some other people have been saying:
Poetry in motion, from velorution
Video of cyclists speeded up in Cambridge. I’ve been meaning to link to the Velorution blog for ages. It is a shop in central London that has the coolest of bicycles. Have a click around the site and you will see what I mean.
Heaven in Ordinary, a talk by John Davies
John doing another talk on the Greenbelt Festival theme for this year. Sit down and read it with a cup of tea.
Conference Of Interestingness from the blog of russell davies
I’m hoping to find fascinating people and to just ask them to speak about something they care about. I want to replicate the experience of clicking from one really good blog to another, ranging across sciences, arts, musics, jokes and whatever. There will be 20 minute slots and 3 minute slots. Some people will play music or sing. And some people who can’t be there will be asked to send three minute videos. Perhaps. I reckon we can squeeze a lot of interestingness into a day. And then have a party afterwards.
A rant from The ad lib school of parenting
Involves hospitals not passing on records etc. I’d be angry too.
Rummaging In Your Rubbish (from Echo)
They are emplying people to poke around in our garbage. They won’t find anything interesting in our rubbish. Most of ours is just stuff we throw away.

Here are some blogs that made me smile over the last 24 hours. You probably read them already, but perhaps some of you don’t.
Little Red Boat (link)
Today’s entry: Colour me blindd
Anna arranges her books in colour order.
This book next to that book, poetry cheek by jowl with travel writing, etiquette rubbing up hard against po-faced textbook. This was exciting! And revolutionary! And new! How incredible an idea!
Tales of Variable Yayness (link)
Today’s entry: Staircam
Yay analyses a hospital stairwell.
“Hey! That guy just walked from the third floor to the 9th floor and then back down to the 4th and back up to the 10th! What is he thinking??”
Diamond Geezer (link)
Today’s entry: The Count (2007)
DG takes his yearly look at his statistics.
At one point earlier in the month I thought that the legendary diamond geezer Mystery Count was most definitely going to reach 2 by the end of February.
All of these blogs are favourites in this household and would be good choices for someone seeking some feeds to populate their feed reader.

A lot of the blogs commenting on current Anglican goings-on were kind enough to link to my Primates meeting cartoon series the other day. I thought it would be nice to link back to some of them and also interesting to see how many people clicked through to my site from the different blogs. I’ve therefore made a top 10 list of the Anglican blogs that supplied the most visitors over the weekend, nearly all of which directed more than 100 people to my cartoon feature. This list begins to give an idea as to how many people read the different blogs, though not a very accurate one as on some of these blogs the post linking here stayed at the top of the list for ages, whereas in other cases the link was one link in a list of many links. It must also be mentioned of course that there are some very good Anglican blogs not listed here as this list only includes ones who linked here over the weekend. All in all, come to think of it, this list is not that useful and so should probably be ignored.
So, in reverse order of numbers of visitors clicking through here:
10 Drell’s Descants
Conservative blog from the classical anglican site. Not to be confused with ‘Drell’s discounts’, the people who sell second hand cars and washing machines.
9 daily episcopalian
Liberal blog from Jim Naughton in the diocese of Washington, USA.
8 Inclusive Church blog
A new blog by Scott Gunn of the liberal UK group Inclusive Church. Scott has been posting from Tanzania and takes pictures too.
7 Stand Firm
A good place to keep up with the conservative side of things, though the contributors do tend to get a little bit overexcited sometimes. I have found that the comments aren’t always a good advert for the conservative stance, though perhaps that isn’t a fair thing to say.
6 Times Online – Ruth Gledhill – WBLG
The blog of the newspaper. Ruth would have been a lot higher in this list (top 3 I’d guess) except that the link from there to here was in the middle of a lot of others not in a separate post like some of the others.
Site written by Catholics who used to be Anglicans.
4 Thinking Anglicans
Thinking Anglicans is the site I recommend if you just want one ‘Anglican goings-on’ news blog. Simon does tend to do a better job of filtering out the nonsense than some of the other links blogs and doesn’t post lots of extracts making it easier to find things.
New blog from the Episcopal church in the USA. Official and everything. Coming from the more liberal side of things.
2 Father Jake Stops the World
Father Jake writes commentary from a liberal point of view. Eclectic and eccentric.
Kendal Harmon’s TirusOneNine site was the only one in this list to send four figures-worth of visitors. Kendall posts so many links that it is difficult to keep up – I don’t know how he manages to do his washing and ironing.

Manna Bible online. Listen, study. Free audio downloads (found via Emergingchurch.info: The MannaBible Project)
The Bible in a free to download form. Great idea, though I personally find the background music a distraction. It’s just the age I’m getting to.
The Body of Christ could use some sleep (Or what the Church can learn from iTunes.)
Again from emergingchurch.info, a piece by Kester Brewin. He is always good value.
Greenbelt – New church art-space launches with Damien Hirst exhibition
“Britain’s leading contemporary artist invited to show works inspired by religious images to generate debate about belief.”
Drive a white van « Mike Hill
Bishop Mike talks about whether people doing innovative church projects should be paid or not.
Interesting-looking day conference on emerging church and being an entrepreneur. Think I might be on holiday though. Not sure.
maggi dawn: SLOW priesthood
Post following on from the Rev. Sam / MadPriest discussion about being a vicar I posted last week. The comments are good, especially the one by John Davies. He is always good value.
staring into the distance::as far as our eyes can see
Paul (always good value) has
three four posts on the same aforementioned topics:
1. Clergy stress
2. “If you meet George Herbert on the road, kill him”
3.1 You get the priests you plan for

5 links for a Saturday:
1. ‘UNUSUAL SUSPECTS’… PROOST looking to find young creatives! « jon birch [creative journal]
If you’re under 25 and looking for an outlet for your creative work (paid) this could be for you.
2. A Secret Sculpture
This sounds brilliant, and it is happening just up the road from me in Rochford. I like eccentric art projects.
‘A Secret Sculpture’ is a public art-work in which a sculpture is designed, disassembled, put into Rochford Reservoir, retrieved by divers and then reassembled before being installed on the small island in the middle of the Reservoir.
The sculpture will be designed in secret by one group of Rochford Residents and be assembled by another, not privy to the original design.
The blog tells the full story.
3. wannabepriest / I’m a published author!! Ridley publish their Lent book
David is giving away some free Lent books.
4. The Fat Badger – Food & Drink – Times Online
Giles Coren convinces me never to buy bottled water again. Not that I do very often.
Mineral water is a preposterous vanity. It is flown and shipped around the world, from France and Norway at best, from Japan and Fiji at worst. It is bottled in glass that is mostly thrown away and is stupidly heavy to freight, or in plastic which never, ever, decomposes and just goes to landfill or ends up in one of the “plastic patches” the size of Texas currently gyring in our oceans.
5. Association of Church Editors – Church Magazine Workshops
This might be interesting for readers who look after their church magazines.
Have a good weekend everyone. Possibly see some of you
in London later or (We didn’t go in the end) in Wokingham tomorrow.

JonnyB’s Private Secret Diary is up for an award in the 2006 Weblog Awards UK section.
You can vote once a day up to a maximum of one time on any one day.
Every vote for JonnyB is a vote for blogs about everyday goings on as opposed to all the political ones which are all very well but not the be all and end all. Oh, and also it will send a clear and unambiguous message (though it may need explaining) to the Government that we support JonnyB’s ‘don’t close the post office campaign’ which they need to hear.
Update: the oppostition are getting worried…

- Today is World Aids Day.
- My thoughts are with my friends in Swansea who are mourning the loss of their friend, Michael Blakey. I didn’t know him, but their tributes are powerful: Wood, Alice, Richard, Sarah, Jacqui, Malcolm.
- Today marks the start of Advent (or at least Advent calendars). I have still not decided how I should mark it this year, but I hope to begin marking it in some way later.
