At least for the time being...I've got posts on all sorts of topics coming off my keyboard and I tend to enjoy blogs more where I don't have to scroll down a bunch to read all the new posts...so I'm going to try to "schedule" mine a little bit.
I've got a post on the "gift of tongues" in pagan religions (including Mormonism), I've got a post on Christ and church/husbands and wives/Adam and Eve. I'd like to cover the life and times (and theology) of John Calvin. And there's a lot of political stuff going on that is interesting (especially since Michigan has the worst single-state economy in the country...what Granholm has done for Michigan, Obama wants to do for the country.
There's also room for "randomosity". Mostly I know that I can have a tendency to become a "one trick pony" and I'm not that. A flexible basic outline keeps me from hyperfocusing.
Sunday seems good for Sola (Reformed stuff) - also, randomosity.
Monday (lunes in Spanish) seems to be the day for the links I've collected over the week. I'm going to start adding links to my other "little" blogspot blogs, which include diet/exercise and what I'm reading.
Tuesday (I don't why) I'll think more philosophically. Other world religions, deep thoughts about life and living. Stuff.
Wednesday is a good day for the "gender" topic (and Wordless Wednesday)
Thursday...Thursday photo challenge (my favorite photo scavenger hunt) and politics
Friday, Fit Friday
Saturday: TN Photo Hunt (my other favorite photo scavenger hunt) and denominational stuff (although that can overlap with politics...and philosophy. And gender).
Just so you all know...I'm enjoying blogging, but I love variety...
The "Big Mac"..."Mighty Mac"...the Mackinac Bridge.
The Mackinac Bridge is currently the third longest suspension bridge in the world. In 1998, the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge in Japan became the longest with a total suspension of 12,826 feet. The Great Belt Bridge in Halsskov-Sprogoe, Denmark, which also opened in 1998, is the second longest suspension bridge in the world with a total suspension of 8,921 feet. The Mackinac Bridge is the longest suspension bridge in the western hemisphere. The total length of the Mackinac Bridge is 26,372 feet. The length of the suspension bridge (including anchorages) is 8,614 feet. The length from cable bent pier to cable bent pier is 7,400 feet. Length of main span (between towers) is 3,800 feet. (...)
The height of the roadway at mid-span is approximately 200 feet above water level. The vertical clearance at normal temperature is 155 feet at the center of the main suspension span and 135 feet at the boundaries of the 3,000 ft. navigation channel.
All suspension bridges are designed to move to accommodate wind, change in temperature, and weight. It is possible that the deck at center span could move as much as 35 feet (east or west) due to high winds. This would only happen under severe wind conditions. The deck would not swing or "sway" but rather move slowly in one direction based on the force and direction of the wind. After the wind subsides, the weight of the vehicles crossing would slowly move it back into center position.
