Berwynn: Still the Candle Burns

No one asked me if I were willing to...

Our daughter Michayla writes stuff. Including a book I reviewed on Amazon. Alas, Amazon rejected my review. Because parents just aren’t objective, apparently. 😯

Here’s my little review:

Sex slave? Trafficked girl?

This book drew me in. Unexpectedly, it lifted my spirit several times along the way. It renewed my vision for the redemptive, victorious work of the Most High in our breaking, darkening, corrupting world.

WordPerfect, for a Better Word

While scanning through PC Magazine’s article on Firefox 12 (color me loyal blue) in high-speed overview mode, I noticed a link to their WordPerfect Office X6 Review & Rating. Well, of course I clicked it:

The number of people who use WordPerfect Office is an almost unnoticeably tiny fraction of the millions using Microsoft Office, but they tend to be intensely loyal.
