    shops Crazy The other is Bank of American ATM s I guess it is like their headquarters or something Anyway there are a lot of them too There is a very prominent one in the middle of this food court As I sat there eating my pizza and watching the poor souls that had to make a living serving out junk food I tried to put myself in their shoes What would it be like to stand behind that counter all day I realized exactly what it would be like Sitting behind that counter all day waiting for people to get little green pieces of paper out of that Bank of America box in the middle of the room and come put them in my box I realized that I would become extremely cynical and depressed over the futility of the whole situation I mean if I could just go get those green pieces of paper myself and put a bunch of them in my box then I could go home I could see myself becoming a bank robber I can just see myself trying to explain my little boxes to the police Honestly sir I was just trying to speed up the process Of course I do know enough about economics to know why that doesn t work but I also know enough to realize that on a larger scale that really is just how it does work They little green pieces of paper just go around and around in big circles People have been trying to cut out the middle man for years but the problem is everyone is the middle man The only way to cut out the middle man is for me to get myself out That really is key too I have never really had a love for money but I do love the things I can buy with it Slowly though as I watch the world go around me I am loosing that I think it is part of what God is teaching me through this time of my life I find daily now that I care less and less about anything that money can buy other than the needs of myself and my family Don t get me wrong I like living well However well used to mean buying all sorts of unnecessary toys Now it means just being able to buy generally good quality of whatever it is we need and most of the things that we could use without any worries about the budget I m still not sure how well I could deal with living like a missionary or something but I certainly don t need or even want to live like a king either No Comments A Decade on the Web Filed under Personal on Monday September 19th 2005 9 43am by Christen I noticed recently that my web presence has hit the decade milestone I feel that is pretty impressive considering just how new the Internet was to most people in 1995 Ten years ago when I set up my first web page the idea was more that you set up a page with the places you liked to go and then other people could see it too The idea of a where I go home page is still around and is the focus of the content provided by most ISP s today in the form of things like MyYahoo and such The personal home page however has morphed from a my places site to a public billboard to just say what you want to anyone that happens to pass by Part of the reason for this change is search engines Back in 1995 they were not so prevalent and certainly not so powerful Surfing the web meant just that It meant starting at a page and then jumping from one page to the next via links By posting lots of links on your site you helped people find things that you have found useful There used to be huge pages of links for this and that subject that people would post on their sites These were extremely useful for a long time Even when search engines showed up that could spider the entire Internet they still had a bad habit of just spitting out useless pages based on the words you searched for Now days very few people post lists of links anymore Some sites like Yahoo and Ask Jeeves still have sections where they try to list sites by subject however search engines like Google have become so good that you really can just find what you want through them We really don t surf anymore instead we google the Internet Google s ability to give you useful pages based on ranking was revolutionary for the Internet It is funny though that at least as far as I understand a lot of that ranking is based on how many people link to a site I wonder if Google will ever got so popular that no one will post links anymore and thus Google will have no way to rank sites anymore Anyway My original site remains much as it was ten years ago at http www lofland net Lofland The content has changed a bit and all of the links pages are gone because well because no one surfs anymore and why should I update links when Google has them all At some point I realized my site had multiple agendas so I slapped on the main page that you see at http www lofland net and put the home page under it Then I added a FIAT page pictures page and a Resume Since then this blog was added first as just a text file and then later as you see it here A webcam page has come and gone Remember when those were so cool My bulletin board guestbook has come and gone and come again It is brand new again now though the content is still there I ve gone through several hosting providers Starting with my ISP FutureNet in 1995 then my employer then a buddy of mine then back and forth between him my home over DSL and a lousy provider and back to my friend s server before just this month moving to DreamHost So anyway this is just my rambling post to brag about ten years on the net It isn t really a big deal to anyone but me but it is fun to think about No Comments Pictures Filed under Personal on Saturday September 3rd 2005 6 09pm by Christen I ve just uploaded new family pictures to my website It has been well over a year so it is about time Lofland Family Pictures Link No Comments Hurricane Katrina Filed under Personal on Friday September 2nd 2005 7 02am by Christen I live in Kansas now but from age two to fifteen I lived in Slidell Louisiana Slidell is a small community just north across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans I am sure that the house I spent most of those years in no longer exists Here is a picture my wife found of the neighborhood that house is in The neighborhood Eden Isles is situated very close to the lake That was part of the point Every house had access to the water We often had a boat at the dock in our back yard We always knew that we could be wiped out by any hurricane When they came we brought in the patio furniture so it wouldn t be thrown through our glass doors by the wind and headed north It was just how life was It wasn t scary or a big deal it was kind of an adventure for a kid I always knew that if we came back to a pile of sticks insurance would replace all of our stuff and build a new house for us What everyone who grows up in the area knows is that evacuation in the face of a hurricane is a very personal thing Many people who have spent decades there get hardened to them and don t evacuate They are always interviewing them on television I d rather die in my house than run from a storm I m sure their sentiments are different on the way up to a helicopter in a basket Seriously though in the past there was an evacuation in Louisiana where the evacuees were trapped on the highway by rising waters and then killed by poisonous snakes while they stood on top of their cars Due to that incident evacuations were never again made mandatory in Louisiana Instead the Police drive down the street telling everyone to leave from their bullhorns In true Louisiana style though everyone listens to this and makes their own decision Some flee some stay and those who stay often suffer the consequences of thumbing their nose at nature Hurricanes aren t like earthquakes or tornadoes They used to be but with modern technology we know they are coming for days We really can run from them What is really sad is that while it is true that many of those who did not evacuate suffer the fate they brought on themselves most of the ones we see on the news now didn t stay by choice Especially in New Orleans Large cities always have large segments of poor In a large city cars are not a necessity and can even be a liability having to find parking at home and at work for it and keeping it safe While a poor person in a small community may be able to have an old junk car in a big city it is a luxury that just isn t possible Most of the people left in New Orleans are very poor people who had no personal transportation It is a great shame that we made no formal effort to evacuate them New Orleans is a death trap in such storms and everyone knows it There has always been the fear that some day a hurricane would come right into Lake Pontchartrain and displace the entire lake into New Orleans leaving the city under fifteen feet of water Actually New Orleans got off easy this time The levee broke after the storm surge was mostly over The Lake wasn t actually pushed into the city but rather the levees just broke It could have been worse Unfortunately the contempt that comes with familiarity is part of the nature of hurricanes They always come Some people run and some stay The damage is rarely catastrophic in certain areas and so we get used to them Yes they tell us on the news that this one is really big and that it may be the big one but after surviving so many everyone gets laid back Even government officials charged with evacuating poor people from a death trap In the future New Orleans should probably be abandoned It is a really bad spot for anyone to live certainly for a big city At the least it should just be bulldozed and the entire bit of land raised about 20 feet None of that will happen though They will rebuild The levees will be made stronger and people will return I don t blame them I would go back too It is a wonderful place I believe it is one of the few remaining havens in our country of truly unique culture Personally it is kind of numbing to see it all in what used to be my back yard In a way I wish I was there I know if I ever go back it won t be the same So many around me will look back to Katrina and I ll just remember the news photos However I lived all of my childhood years under the shadow of Camille and it happened before I was born It was always Camille this and Camille that I could point out places where things ued to be that Camille destroyed and show your boats that were still where Camille left them several miles inland So maybe I m just destined to live in the shadow of tragedy that missed me No Comments 1999 Mustang GT Filed under Personal on Tuesday August 30th 2005 1 29pm by Christen Just for fun I thought I d post a picture of my latest toy I bought it this Spring In return I sold my 1985 Volvo Wagon and my 78 Black FIAT Spyder It was basically a decision of practicality that conincided with several other life events Despite the sacrifices this is a very fun car It is a stick shift It had 37K miles on it when I bought it It is 100 stock even had the original tires on it I have lots of ideas for it but for now it is very fun as is and the new tires is enough of an expense for this year These pictures were actually taken before I bought the car No Comments Life is not about doing but being Filed under Personal on Thursday December 30th 2004 11 50am by Christen Life is not about doing but being It is not about being busy either but about being alive and being friends All of the modern conveniences of the 21st Century in the most developed nation in the world have not lead to more free time but to more busy time I hope to spend my year in 2005 learning to do less and be more Specifically I hope to spend much time sitting still and communicating with my wife communicating with my children communicating with my friends and reading meaningful books about quantum physics No Comments Running Scared Filed under Personal on Tuesday November 23rd 2004 9 42pm by Christen I have recently witnessed yet another family who spent most of their years of existence running from evil suddenly caught by it They avoided all modern media nearly all movies all forms of rock music youth groups in churches and just about anything else that could possibly be considered anything short of perfect This running from evil was part of what they ate what they wore their education and everything Then all in one day they discover that despite and maybe even because of their constant running from anything with the slightest hint of anything evil evil found them In fact evil had caught their familiy in ways that few families are caught Things that the most liberal soul outraged Seems I heard someone say recently something to the effect of You can t run from it it will hunt you down and catch you like a dog I know the word he used was sorrow but it seemed to really be a good synonym for evil in both that scenario and the ones I speak of now If you haven t seen The Village do If you don t get it either A You are in a BAD way or B You are lucky enough to have not experienced what I m talking about I really start to wonder if God ever intended for us to run from evil in the way that these people have We don t all hide in a village but many hide behind high standards that keep them from living in our world I m not advocating that we all start indulging in pornography eating pepperoni pizza three meals a day listen to music full of foul language or become nudists I am saying though that maybe the reasons for your decisions needs to be based on your knowledge of your relationship with Christ and not on your fear of a relationship with the devil Hey mom look who s on TV The devil Oh did I quote another movie Everything in our culture is not evil and running from everything in our culture will not protect you from evil No Comments Grand Theft Filed under Personal on Tuesday November 16th 2004 3 40pm by Christen Recently I heard on the radio that the motion picture association is going to start legal action against those it can find swapping pirated movies on the Internet It somehow strikes me as very ironic to see artists pulling in the law to defend them against the theft of music and movies that glorify breaking the law I mean isn t it kind of odd to think of being arrested for stealing Gone in Sixty Seconds Or to have the police show up at your door and haul you off for pirating music that talks about selling drugs Seems like they are fighting the culture that they are promoting with the weapons that they criticize the most It is very tempting to post a copy of some song ranting against the police on my web site and wait for them to show up to haul me off for doing it No Comments Introduction Filed under Personal on Friday November 12th 2004 9 52pm by Christen I ve finally been taken in by the weblog fad I have posted my doings in the past but I hope for this to be more of just my thoughts on various topics My two reasons for this are 1 To have some place where I can easily jot down my random thoughts on life for myself to keep and others to muse over 2 To make it simple for anyone who feels the urge to make comments on my random thoughts So check back here from time to time to see what nonsense I have put up and please do leave your comments for me and all to see I will be moderating the comments so they won t show up until I read them and hit the approve button That will eliminate the trash that tends to show up in these things grow
