An explosion has ripped through Moscow's Domodedovo airport - the busiest in the Russian capital, killing at least 35 people. Some 170 people were injured in the blast, which reports suggest was the work of a suicide bomber.


Emergency services were called to a semi-detached house in Hulland Ward near Ashbourne shortly before midnight on Monday and discovered a serious fire.

Four children, two girls, aged six and two, and two boys, aged nine and four, died in the blaze. A 45-year-old woman was taken to the Royal Derby Hospital suffering from smoke inhalation.

It's cold, which means that my broken bone in my leg is aching.

I'm swamped, and my secretary will be having surgery next week. I'm worried about how we (read I) will function without her for the next several weeks. Yes, I'm worried that it will all go well for her, too, but selfishly I am seeing this through the lens of my own needs.

StrongOpinions is hitting the end-of-January seasonal affective disorder blues. Many phone calls, much wailing. I love her, but I don't have a whole lot of psychic energy right now myself.


Please continue to pray for Kirstin at BAREFOOT AND LAUGHING. She discovered another tumour the other day which is a step backwards in her latest bout of cancer. She is a very stoical, accepting, faithful and brave lady and has an inner strength I doubt many could equal. But she appreciates the prayers of her friends very much.


My sister Iva just sent me word that our sister Shirley and her husband Jack were in an accident yesterday.

"Shirley and Jack were in a accident this morning in bad fog! Their car is totalled, but they were checked out at the hospital and no broken bones or blood. Probably gonna be really sore tomorrow."

Good News! The weekend passed with no episodes of coughing, and, indeed, for it to be so cold, Katzie is very active.

We're at goal for the bills, thanks to a very generous gift from someone locally. Thank and bless you all!

THE PRAYER LIST – 25TH. JANUARY 2011 — 7 Comments

  1. Oh, what a mixture here. Both inexpressible suffering and sorrow as well as true joy.

    I have spent time in prayer on all of these.

    Prayer will continue.

  2. Thanks to you for the prayers – the bone scan was negative, no sign of metastases in any bones, so that’s a good start. Next, scans using radio-isotopes to locate any tumors to see just where they are. That will determine the treatment, but either of the possibilities will keep me going for many years, so it is all good. I really do feel very much at peace with this at present, a great gift indeed.

  3. If you would all please pray (again) for my friend Cath (w/ the Stage 4 metastatic lung cancer).

    She’s having some special treatment (inc. surgery) on her liver lesion. Something not usually done in Stage 4, but her doctors think she may benefit from this process (starts tomorrow!).
