When I was young, aeons ago, this quotation was inscribed on a plaque that hung above our meal table: Christ is the head of this house; the unseen guest at every meal; the silent listener to every conversation. As a child, I interpreted it as a reminder to control my tongue, if not my thoughts, too! Now I read it differently. Now it tells me that all our conversations are graced by Christ's presence and sometimes, maybe even often, inspired by his Spirit. Sometimes these conversations happen by e-mail.

Minnesota State Senator Dallas Sams on Friday stated that he is again battling a malignant tumor. Sams, who was successfully treated for a brain tumor in 2005, recently learned that a new growth has been found by his doctors, and they are currently working together to develop treatments. "This is obviously not the news that I hoped to share with my family and my many friends, but I am confident and ready to tackle this challenge," Sams said.

There are some things you can count on happening about the same time each year. The invasion of strawberry root weevils into our homes in late summer is one of those events. Sure enough last week I had several samples on my desk waiting to be identified. August and some years early September are the prime time to see these pests in the home. Strawberry root weevils are common home invaders that we call nuisance insects as they cause no harm to humans, pets or household furnishings.
