07:01 pm: More from the lakes
More from the convention this morning and then we went off to the
world-famous pencil museum, which is much better than it sounds. A
walk up to Castlerigg Stone Circle later, which was still quite damp
after the storm overnight, but there are blue skies here now. Viv went
off to walk on the lake later, while I did some preparatory work on
next Sunday morning's sermon: Joseph's dreams.
But now we're in the main tent, where it is absolutely packed already,
as we wait for what we understand will be John Stott's last public
appearance. Even people who never arrive on time for anything have
been spotted here already! I guess that the overflow venues will be
doing a brisk trade tonight. But I guess the praise and worship will
start any time now, so I'll wrap up till later.

I've been to the pencil musuem as well - I hope you got your picture taken in front of the world's largest pencil. If you liked it there, you would probably like "The Car's The Star" as well. The highlight is the Pink Panther's car.

It never occurred to me to have my picture taken there. Viv apparently did think of it, but decided the pencil wasn't in a good place for such a photo.

We strive only to attend one oddball museum in each holiday, so might go to the car museum next time.

Viv went off to walk on the lake later I did not!!! I may be attending a Christian conference and even admit to having quite a strong faith but i did not walk on the lake!! I think the preposition you were looking for was around!!

Hmmm...I must have used the wrong preposition. Sorry for any confusion.

Will you be singing it? That'd be so cool, just get up there and sing the whole Technicolour Dreamcoat thingy then sit down *g*

Yes, that would be fun, but it's not quite what I had in mind. And you haven't heard me sing recently, have you?

I haven't ever heard you sing. Maybe you ought to sing a post one day *g*
Mind you, there are several men at Mass Christy thinks ought to be banned from singing altogether! I told her to embrace their enthusiasm. She just looked at me.
