Working Saturday. I’m blessed to have a job with flexible hours that enable me to take advantage of nice days like we had this week, but it is a job that requires me to put in the hours, so when the rain comes out, I go in.
I am, however, starting my first flower plugs this morning before I go in. I’ll have to look at my planting notes, but I think my first trays of sunflowers and zinnias are on the schedule today. It might be a little bit early, but I’ll be succession planting trays (a few trays every weekend through early May).
My primary project today: working on a 501(c)(3) application. A few years ago, the IRS greatly streamlined the application for small nonprofits. I was genuinely impressed and surprised. “It’s not often,” I thought to myself, “that a government agency takes a step toward increasing the country’s general efficiency.” But then last December, they re-issued the application for larger nonprofits and took back there what they gave earlier. The new full-blown application is far harder than the old one. Fortunately, very few of my nonprofit clients need to use the full-blown one.

My last Theology on Tap lecture of the season is this Wednesday. I still don’t have a topic, but I’m leaning toward epistemology: how do we know anything? I’d probably start with the Scientific Revolution and Bacon’s break with deductive reasoning from premises, discuss its shortfalls, and the mess it has left us today (where we can trust virtually nothing, not even medical studies), and contrast it with natural law knowledge.
