“And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by from this day until the ending of the world but we in it shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers, For he today who sheds his blood with me shall be my brother, Be he ne’er so vile, this day shall gentle his condition, and gentlemen in England now abed shall think themselves acursed they were not here, and hold their manhoods cheap whilst any speaks, that fought with us upon St. Crispin’s day!”

(from the movie “Henry V”)

Joy and I went to see the Neko Case concert last night here in town. I don’t think Neko is Joy’s favorite, but she was very kind to come along all the same and put up with her husband’s sometimes unusual taste in music. My mom watched Charis so we got to go out to dinner beforehand, which was nice. The opening act at the concert wasn’t really my cup of tea, but I thought that Neko was very good. She sang almost everything off her latest album, and quite a few older songs as well, including “Deep Red Bells”, “Set Out Running”, “If I Were You”, and “The Tigers Have Spoken”. I would have loved to hear a few of her more uptempo older songs like “Bowling Green”, “Rated X”, or “Soulful Shade of Blue”, but in the context of her latest album, it seemed like a darker set of songs in general. Neko’s voice was awesome and it was even more powerful in person than it comes across in recordings.

One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, “Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!”

But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”

And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”

Luke 23:39-43 (ESV)

I saw a link about this on one of the blogs I read (Download Squad), and I just thought it was really funny. They discovered that if you ask Google for driving directions between locations on two different continents, such as New York City and Stockholm, Google provides this helpful step for crossing the ocean:
