Website of the day: TyphoonDesign: For the pictures, sometimes I really miss Japan.

The world is full of idiots like Saddam Hussein, Bin-Laden and Kim Jong-il and all the miriad evil wannabees oppressing people in various Central/South American, Middle Eastern, African, and Asian countries. They happily take all the money the United States will give them and/or they can get from oil profits and stash it away in overseas accounts, build massive palaces and build up a military to rid the world of Jews (middle east) or to blackmail the U.S. into giving them more money (Korea) instead of using it on the people and then have the gall to blame the U.S. for their problems. The United States is far from perfect and it sure isn't a righteous, God-fearing nation - it has it's share of sins - but it doesn't even come close to being as bad as most of the rest of the world and the U.S. has been a huge blessing to this world in more ways than you can count. The worst part is hearing fellow Americans criticize this country as if it is the bane of the world, which they learn in our schools and so-called institutions of higher learning. ( Which are the bane of this country) Right is wrong, wrong is right. Or is it "there is no right or wrong"?

I wish they would stop harping on this cloning thing too. It's really not that big of a deal. Basically what they are doing is just a fancy form of artificial insemenation, it's very difficult but not magic. Just bypassing a natural process. The baby that results is still a 'never was before, never will be again' individual. It can never be exactly like the donor in every sense and will grow up with different experiences and be an individual just like everyone else. It is nothing like the movie Multiplicity and never will be. As far as using the fetus (a baby) as a donor for organs or to transplant a brain into, would you do that to any other child? Would you allow the use of an unborn baby (a fetus) for brain stem research? I know some people would and those who deny God exists and therefore do not accept His laws can find it easy to justify.
Actually, humans can and do justify horrible acts. Pol Pot, Stalin and Hitler thought nothing of killing millions of people in the name of their 'better way', their vision of utopia. You and I can't even imagine that. What about Idi Amin or Saddam Hussein. Millions of babies are killed every year right here in the US of A. Horribly. There was a time when that was unacceptable. They say abortion should be legal in case of rape or danger to the mother. But are millions of women raped every year?
Cloning in and of itself is not the problem, it's what they want to do with the clones. That's the problem. What will they think of themselves when they learn the truth?

Here's a cool clock to check out.

Website of the day: How Christmas Works: Is December 25 really the day Jesus was born?

Actually, it is possible to determine the birthdate of Jesus Christ. Luke 1 is the chapter that deals with the begettal and birth of John the Baptist and Jesus Christ. It states in Luke 1:5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. Notice he was of the course of Abia. Also note Luke 1:25, 26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, 27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. So Jesus Christ was begotten 6 months after John the Baptist.

Quoting Bullinger's Companion Bible Appendix 179: This was the eighth of the priestly courses of ministration in the Temple (1 Chronicles 24:10), and occurred, as did the others, twice in the year.

The "Courses"were changed every week, beginning each with a Sabbath. The reckoning commenced on the 22nd day of Tisri or Ethanim (Appendix 51. 5). This was the eighth and last day of the Feast of Tabernacles = the "Great Day of the Feast" (John 7:37), and was a Sabbath (Leviticus 23:39).

Bearing in mind that all the courses served together at the three Great Feasts, the dates for the two yearly "ministrations" of Abiah will be seen to fall as follows:

The first 9 ministration was from 12-18 Chisleu = December 6-12.

The second ministration was from 12-18 Sivan = June 13-19.

The announcement therefore to Zacharias in the Temple as to the conception of John the Baptist took place between 12-18 SIVAN (June 13-19), in the year 5 B.C. After finishing his "ministration", the aged priest "departed to his own house" (Luke 1:23), which was in a city in "the hill country" of Juda (verse 39).

The day following the end of the "Course of Abia" being a Sabbath (Sivan 19), he would not be able to leave Jerusalem before the 20th.

The thirty miles journey would probably occupy, for an old man, a couple of days at least. He would therefore arrive at his house on the 21st or 22nd. This leaves ample time for the miraculous "conception" of Elizabeth to take place on or about 23rd of SIVAN - which would correspond to June 23-24 of that year. The fact of the conception and its date would necessarily be known at the time and afterwards, and hence the 23rd SIVAN would henceforth be associated with the conception of John Baptist as the 1st TEBETH would be with that of our Lord.

But the same influences that speedily obscured and presently obliterated the real dates of our Lord's "Begetting" and Birth, were also at work with regard to those of the Forerunner, and with the same results. As soon as the true Birth day of Christ had been shifted from its proper date, videlicet: the 15th of Tisri (September 29), and a Festival Day from the Pagan Calendars substituted for it (videlicet: December 25), then everything else had to be altered too.

Hence "Lady Day" in association with March 25 (new style) became necessarily connected with the Annunciation. And June 24 made its appearance, as it still is in our Calendar, as the date of "the Nativity of John the Baptist", instead of, as it really is, the date of his miraculous conception.

The Four "Quarter Days" may therefore be set forth thus: in the chronological order of the events with which they are associated, videlicet:

The conception of John Baptist on or about 23rd SIVAN = June 24 in the year 5 B.C.

The Genesis (Begetting) of our Lord on or about 1st TEBETH = December 25 in the year 5 B.C.

The birth of John Baptist on or about 4th-7th NISAN = March 25-28 in the year 4 B.C.

The birth of our Lord on or about 15th TISRI = September 29 in the year 4 B.C.

The "Annunciation" by the Angel Gabriel marked the genesis of Matthew 1:18, and the first words of John 1:14.

The announcement to the shepherds by the Archangel Michael marked the Birth of our Lord. John 1:14 is read as though "the Word became flesh (Revised Version), and dwelt among us", were one and the same thing where - as they are two clauses.

The paragraph should read thus:

"And the Word became flesh; (Greek ho logos sarx egeneto.)

And tabernacled with (or among) us." (Greek kai eskenosen en hemin).

The word tabernacled here (preserved in Revised Version marg.) receives beautiful significance from the knowledge that "the Lord of Glory"
was "found in fashion as a man" , and thus tabernacling in human flesh. And in turn it shows in equally beautiful significance that our Lord was born on the first day of the great Jewish Feast of Tabernacles, videlicet: the 15th of Tisri, corresponding to September 29, 4 B.C. (modern reckoning).
The circumcision of our Lord took place therefore on the eighth day, the last day of the Feast, the "Great Day of the Feast" of John 7:37 ("Tabernacles" had eight days. The Feast of Unleavened Bread had seven days, and Pentecost one. See Leviticus 23).

End of quote from Bullinger's Companion Bible Appendix 179

Jesus Christ was born on the 1st day of the Feast of Tabernacles, 15 Tisri - September 29 on our calender - 4 BC.

A couple of points: Christ "became flesh" at his begettal. If Mary had an abortion at any time after conception Christ would have died. Abortion is murder.

God does everything on time. Significantly, Christ was born on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles and circumcised on the Last Great Day. Almost no one knows anything about these holy days. Yet they are not Jewish, Christians should be keeping them now and the whole world will keep them after Christ returns. Zec 14:16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

One more thing, there is no feast or holy day marking the begettal of Jesus Christ. We are commanded to keep God's feasts, but He also says: Deuteronomy 28:13 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them: 14 And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

Deuteronomy 12:30 Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise. 31 Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods. 32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

2 Kings 17:33 They feared the LORD, and served their own gods, after the manner of the nations whom they carried away from thence. 34 Unto this day they do after the former manners: they fear not the LORD, neither do they after their statutes, or after their ordinances, or after the law and commandment which the LORD commanded the children of Jacob, whom he named Israel;

That being said, what is this? That's freaky!

Website: Space.com Star of Bethlehem: Going Back in Time to Examine Its Origins

At least they know He wasn't born Dec 25. Here's the verse:

Matthew 2:9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

And here is a verse which sheds some light on the answer:

Revelation1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

In Matthew 2:9 the star went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. So the star was actually leading them directly to the child, it wasn't just in the eastern sky. If they saw a bright star in the sky and headed toward it they would never reach it. It could never lead them directly to a person. And as the earth rolled it would move or not be visible anymore. In light of the definition of a "star" in Revelation 1:20 and the context in which "star" is used in Matthew 2:9, it becomes clear that the star is actually an angel.

Here's one for Windows: Make Windows Work Better One tip to a page, kind of a pain to get through it but looks like some great tips. Some I've seen before and some I'd like to try if I ever feel like firing up the windows computer again. Hee hee.

Here are a couple of computer articles written by John C. Dvorak. The first one is Upstarts Attack Microsoft Slackers and I've included it here because I agree with it 100%. My first choice in browser is Opera, then Mozilla. I use explorer only on those sites that will not work with the others. Usually this is because they decide for me that my browser won't work on their site. In Opera you can tell the browser to identify itself as explorer and most times that works perfectly. I try to have it identify itself as Opera most of the time because I want webmasters to know there are people out there using it.

The second article is Obituary: OS/2. It seems IBM has killed off OS/2. I used to use OS/2 back when most people were using Windows 3.11. I could not figure out why nobody wanted to use it, I loved that operating system. It was way ahead of it's time. Too bad.

I've been getting more and more comfortable with Mac OS X. I'm thinking about setting up the printer so I can connect to the Mac and I can't think of any other reason to use Windows anymore. I feel free!

While on the subject, here is the Best of the Web for Dec.19,2002

John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

I know the Republicans lie too, but not to the monstrous proportions that have been coming out of the Democratic party.

On the same subject, Thomas Sowell writes: Lott and resignation

Anti-Americanism on the rise: Richard Halloran makes no mention of Europe. Anti-Americanism in Europe is largley ignored by the American press. That's too bad, because it's not the Middle Eastern or Asian nations who will pose the greatest threat to America.

Isaiah 10:5 O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. 6 I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets. 7 Howbeit he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few. It is the German people who have descended from the Assyrians and this prophecy will happen at the end time.

Isaiah 40:12 Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? 13 Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him? 14 With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding? 15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing. 16 And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering. 17 All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.

John C. Hulsman/Brett D. Schaefer wrote A Western Turkey

In the Bible, modern Turkey is Edom, which came from Esau, the brother of Jacob.

Ge 25:30 And Esau said to Jacob, "Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary." Therefore his name was called Edom.

There has been a wicked rivalry between Jacob and Esau since in the womb. And ever since. Modern day Palistinians descended from the Philistines.

Ezekiel 25:12 'Thus says the Lord God: "Because of what Edom did against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and has greatly offended by avenging itself on them," 13 therefore thus says the Lord God: "I will also stretch out My hand against Edom, cut off man and beast from it, and make it desolate from Teman; Dedan shall fall by the sword. 14 I will lay My vengeance on Edom by the hand of My people Israel, that they may do in Edom according to My anger and according to My fury; and they shall know My vengeance," says the Lord God. 15 'Thus says the Lord God: "Because the Philistines dealt vengefully and took vengeance with a spiteful heart, to destroy because of the old hatred," 16 therefore thus says the Lord God: "I will stretch out My hand against the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethites and destroy the remnant of the seacoast. 17 I will execute great vengeance on them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I lay My vengeance upon them.

Mal 1:4 Even though Edom has said, "We have been impoverished, But we will return and build the desolate places," Thus says the Lord of hosts: "They may build, but I will throw down; They shall be called the Territory of Wickedness, And the people against whom the Lord will have indignation forever.5 Your eyes shall see, And you shall say, 'The Lord is magnified beyond the border of Israel.'

The following describes a yet future captivity of Judah and the rest of the descendents of Jacob (Israel). Judah is modern Israel. Israel refers mostly to the United States and Great Britain.

Obadiah 1:10 "For violence against your brother Jacob, Shame shall cover you, And you shall be cut off forever. 11 In the day that you stood on the other side-- In the day that strangers carried captive his forces, When foreigners entered his gates And cast lots for Jerusalem-- Even you were as one of them. 12 But you should not have gazed on the day of your brother In the day of his captivity; Nor should you have rejoiced over the children of Judah In the day of their destruction; Nor should you have spoken proudly In the day of distress. 13 You should not have entered the gate of My people In the day of their calamity. Indeed, you should not have gazed on their affliction In the day of their calamity, Nor laid hands on their substance In the day of their calamity. 14 You should not have stood at the crossroads To cut off those among them who escaped; Nor should you have delivered up those among them who remained In the day of distress. 15 "For the day of the Lord upon all the nations is near; As you have done, it shall be done to you; Your reprisal shall return upon your own head. 16 For as you drank on my holy mountain, So shall all the nations drink continually; Yes, they shall drink, and swallow, And they shall be as though they had never been.

They may be our "friends" now, but their true colors will show when the tribulation is upon us.

Neal Boortz wrote this Tuesday (Dec. 17, 2002):


If you were watching Paula Zahn on CNN this morning you saw Congressmen Gregory Meeks (D-NY) and J.C. Watts (R-OK) discussing (what else?) the Trent Lott situation. During the course of that conversation Meeks, the Democrat, was doing his level best to portray the Republicans as generally bigoted and racist.

During his rant Meeks told Zahn that he has actually seen campaign literature with the picture of a black family and the words “If they win, we lose.” Meeks presented this as an example of the racism that is a part of the Republican Party.

OK … now here’s the rest of the story.

That campaign literature was prepared and used in Georgia. Yes, it did have a picture of a black family; and yes, it did have the words “If they win, we lose.” What Meeks didn’t say this morning on CNN was that this campaign flyer also had a picture of a white person … a Republican candidate. In the flyer the “they” referred to the white guy, the “we” was referring to the black family.

Interesting, isn’t it? The Democrats create a bit of campaign literature designed to frighten blacks into voting Democrats by telling them that if “they” (the Republicans) win, “we” (black families) lose.

This has to be the first piece of “dual use” campaign literature I’ve seen. You use the flyer during the campaign to frighten blacks into voting for Democrats; then, after the election is over, you attribute the flyer to Republicans and use it to illustrate their racism.

End of Neal Boortz quote.

I saw the documentary on the Bismark on the Discovery channel and it is really good. It's fascinating to see the ship after all that time out of our reach and watch the reactions of some of the crew who were on the ship when it was sunk. That ship was huge. If you are at all interested in the events of world war II you really need to see it.

For the past week James has been asking "why?" everytime you ask him to do something. It's cute mostly but when he's doing something wrong it's very annoying.
He has a large ball and he was sitting on it and rolling off. It was so cute so I went to get the video camera and he decided he would rather search for the toys he dropped behind his crib and he wouldn't do it anymore. The next day he did it again, then told me to get the camera. So, off I went happy to finally get a shot of him doing it and when I got back maybe 20 seconds later he wouldn't do it anymore again!
I took him to a park last week and he had alot of fun chasing the squirrels. He would chase them to the tree and it would hide on the other side and he says "Where'd he go?" Sometimes he would try to climb the tree - he even tried to use his nails like claws to follow them. We saw an otter sitting on the boat ramp eating a fish and he scared it away by screaming at it. He spent alot of time trying to catch the birds too.

Iraq's Aziz Brands Bush a 'Hypocrite'

"He's a hypocrite because a true Christian would not be a war monger, would not push for the destruction of a country and its people," Aziz said.

#1. America does not intend to or want to destroy Iraq or it's people. America wants only to get rid of an evil man who thinks nothing of torturing and killing anyone and everyone who he perceives is a threat to him, his dictatorship, or his eventual plans of being the modern day Saladin. Sometimes just for fun. And who has the means to do it. America would be doing the people of Iraq a favor. Right or wrong.

#2. America, according to those who interpret our laws, is not a Christian nation and does not acknowledge God as having any moral, spiritual, or legal leadership of this country. America looks to the strength of its leaders, its people, and its allies. The god of your choice is on the shelf in case of emergency.

#3. Although He doesn't intend or want Christians to fight for Him (Romans 12:19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord.) Jesus the Christ of Nazerath, who was the God of the old testament, ( John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. ) will in the future, at His return - and not before - Make War with all the inhabitants of the earth who will not accept Him as world ruler.

God is not against standing up for what is right.

Revelation 19:11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. 12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. 13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. 15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. 17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, "Come and gather together for the supper of the great God, 18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great." 19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.

The fact is, if America or someone else doesn't get him, and he's still living when Christ returns, he will be bird food. But alot of people will have suffered miserably in the meantime.

Matthew 24:45 "Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. 47 Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But if that evil servant says in his heart, 'My master is delaying his coming,' 49 and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, 50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, 51 and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Best of the Web for Dec. 10, 2002

I was asked recently if Al Qaeda was a person or a group. People just don't want to face reality and keep informed of what is really going on in the world. They would rather concern themselves only with music, movies, sports and anything pleasant so they don't have to think about the horrors of this world.

Mark 13:35 Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming--in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning-- 36 lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. 37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!"

Luke 21:34 "But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35 For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."

Acts 20:31 Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.

1 Thessalonians 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. 8 But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.

Revelation 3:3 Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.

Mac Operating System X (ten) is based on FreeBSD 4.4. Mac OS X: Look who else is switching

If you've never experienced a BSD/Linux operating system it's hard to understand the the flexibility and choices you have with them. You can literally change every aspect of the operating system. But with that you need ALOT of knowledge and the ability to make decisions. For instance, which GUI (desktop) do you want to use? Gnome, Kde, Enlightenment, NeXTStEP or, I forget what else. There are so many. And you can manipulate each one and make it look completely different. It's really quite amazing, but you really have to know what you are doing. I'm simplifying it, it's even more complicated.
Mac is using an amazing GUI and takes alot of those choices away. That's good. And it could be bad too. But mostly it's good. They make it easy enough for your mother to use, yet underneath... unix, and you can use the command line when you need to.

James is sitting here with me eating chipotle salsa and chips. In fact he just drank it. Go figure. He doesn't really eat candy or cookies so much. Usually he'll put them down after a couple of minutes.

I've been checking out ebay lately, looking at computer stuff. Just dreaming. I can't believe the amount of obviously fraudulent auctions I see in the higher end areas. People are apparently using other users ids to put up fake auctions. So many say money order/cashiers check only, no user feedback, or like I said, they use someone elses user id. Then most of them are cancelled by ebay. I hope they get most of them. I say if you're looking for expensive electronics go to a legit business on the web instead of an unknown ebay user. Even the escrow companies are being faked. Go on the boards and educate yourself before bidding. Tis the season!

Lately I'm wishing more and more I had an Apple computer instead of windows. I'm really getting tired of all the stupid little problems every time I try to use the computer. I don't have time to be messing around with the computer every time I go to use it. I like Linux and the BSD's but you end up constantly tinkering with them and I can't do it anymore. Sometimes I like messing around with a computer but mostly I just want record a cd without windows saying I have no cd writer installed, so I have to reboot. Or can't connect to the internet and somehow rebooting solves that as well. Or locking up the whole thng. This is with XP Professional It wasn't supposed to be like this. Anyway, I'm reading and learning about the Mac's, I have a hard time believing they are close to perfect either. Not that in I can actually afford one anyway, that's one thing I really don't like about the Mac. It's like going from one monopoly to another. Why couldn't the world smarten up in the early 90's and start using OS/2? That operating system was light years ahead of windows at the time. But no, windows was so great! Yeah right.
This is one example of why democracies don't work. The people don't always know better. And the United States of America is NOT a democracy no matter how many times you hear it said on the news, in schools, by government officials, or whoever. This country is a republic and there is a good reason for it. Our founding fathers were much more brilliant then they are given credit for, especially by the left. Contrary to popular belief, although we are swimming in knowledge, more than any other generation, we are not getting more intelligent every generation. No way.

I just heard about this. The government will be overseeing the new kids.us internet domain for kids. That'll work.

Last night a hotel close to mine had a bad fire in one of the buildings. I kept seeing fire truck after fire truck go by and another hotel called to ask me what was going on. She heard about it on her scanner. I drove by to see what hotel it was and it was fully involved, flames shooting out of the roof. It was the old Residence Inn. I don't know what it's called now, it's just a generic name. It was in a vacant building, no one was hurt.

When I was coming back I was stopped at a light and a fire truck was coming up on the cross traffic. They had a green light but for some reason, the cars just stopped, blocking the intersection, instead of going through and getting out of the way. I'm glad I don't drive a fire truck. You have to be a fireman 10 years to drive the fire truck. (Obscure Newhart reference)

I got the Roger Waters "In the Flesh" DVD and it is really great. It perfectly captured the concert, which I saw in Tampa. And it sounds terrific, he is better than ever.

This is a great site for learning more about gemstones called Your Gemlogist

Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

2Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Jonah 3:8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily to God; yes, let every one turn from his evil way and from the violence that is in his hands. 9 Who can tell if God will turn and relent, and turn away from His fierce anger, so that we may not perish? 10 Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it.

Romans 8:13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

This is refering to the second death.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment,

Revelation 2:11 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.

Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

Revelation 21:8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death

Malachi 4:3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father." 16 The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
17 and if children, then heirs--heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. 23 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. 24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
