Welcome to the 338th Christian Carnival. For more information on the Christian Carnival, see here. There weren't as many submissions this week as there have usually been, although there were quite a bit more than usual spam submissions. Maybe it's just that time of the summer in the northern hemisphere (where most of our activity happens to be located). As I usually do, I've included submissions whose dates are before this week's carnival period in a second section after the posts from this week. I also usually throw in a few posts that weren't submitted that might be worth your attention, and those appear at the end.


The 338th Christian Carnival will be hosted this coming Wednesday here at Parableman. The Christian Carnival is a weekly collection of some of the best posts of the Christian blogosphere. It's open to Christians of Protestant, Orthodox, and Roman Catholic convictions. One of the goals of this carnival is to offer our readers to a broad range of Christian thought. This is a great way to make your writing more well known and perhaps pick up some regular readers. For examples of past carnivals, see the Christian Carnival archive.

To enter is simple. First, your post should be of a Christian nature, but this does not exclude posts that are about home life, politics, or current events from a Christian point of view. Select only one post dated since the last Christian Carnival (i.e. from the last Wednesday through the coming Tuesday). Then do the following:
 
 











The 337th Christian Carnival is up at The Peculiar Life.

Welcome to the 111th Philosophers' Carnival. For more information on the Philosophers' Carnival, please see here. Most hosts just present the posts neutrally, but sometimes they comment on them. I'm going to take the latter course this time around, although in some cases I'll have more to say than in others. I've extended a little grace and included posts outside the three-week range for this carnival if they otherwise met the criteria for inclusion and if the date wasn't too far back (the submitted post from May will not be appearing).


The 336th Christian Carnival is up at Thinking in Christ: Christian Thinking in an Emoting World. I thought I'd published this four days ago, but I guess not.

The 111th Philosophers' Carnival is coming up here at Parableman on Monday. Check the Philosophers' Carnival site for more information, including the submissions form.

Update Tuesday July 20: The carnival should be up by this evening (EST) sometime. Sorry for the delay.

Perfect Pitch?

| | Comments (0)

a few days ago:

Ethan: (listening to radio) Hey, I have that song on one of my CDs, except it's in a different key.
me: What key is this in?
Ethan: It's in G.
me: What key is the other one in?
Ethan: F

(He hasn't ever tried to play the song on the piano or use any other method to figure out the key.)

this morning:

me: Hey, aren't you learning to play this song in your piano lessons?
Ethan: Yes.
me: Is it in the same key?
Ethan: No.
me: What key do you play it in?
Ethan: C
me: What key is this version in?
Ethan: F

I didn't check to see if he was right. He might have trouble with sharps and flats, and he may not be precise yet with it, but this is well beyond most musicians even after lots of training. So we can add this to the ability to drum a 7/8 rhythm at age 6.



The 334th Christian Carnival is up at RodneyOlsen.net.
