Crazy, hurricane-force winds and torrential rainstorms don't usually happen here. We haven't even had much rain for many years (we've been in a Stage 2 or 3 drought for a long time now). That all changed when my little street became a raging river in short order this afternoon, and you should have seen all the trash and recycling cans (trash day) floating down the street! I was watching the action out front when I heard the commotion out back.....…

It seems that every time a story is printed about the Obama's enjoying a night out on the town, it includes a lavish lobster dinner at a swanky eatery.
And we know Miss Michelle didn't have any trouble blowing out the candles because her husband invited the 'inner circle' to join in the festivities, like Marian Robinson, Michelle's mother, and Atty General Eric Holder and his wife Sharon Malone. Eric and Cheryl Whitaker, and… Continue

There recently was an article in the St. Petersburg Fl. Times. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on: "How Would You Fix the Economy?"
Dear Mr. President,
Please find below my suggestion for fixing America 's economy. Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan. You can call it the "Patriotic Retirement Plan":
There are about 40 million people over 50 in… Continue

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary --
I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are, Christmas trees.
It doesn't bother me a bit when people… Continue

I pray for
A few friends who understand me and remain my friends;
A work to do which has real value,
without which the world would be the poorer;
A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed;
An understanding heart;
A sense of humor;
Time for quiet, silent meditation;
A feeling of the presence of God;
The patience to wait for the coming of these things,
With the wisdom… Continue

I pray that faith enters a new height for you.
I pray that your territory is enlarged.
I pray for peace,… Continue

This is a letter Jesus might write about what's become of Christmas. I didn't write this letter, but thought I'd share it with the group. It's no secret that Christmas is the only religious holiday that has been picked apart, seemingly in an effort to defeat/annihilate/decimate it. I've never heard Muslims, Jews, Quakers, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons or any other religious group who has been told they aren't allowed to speak their holiday well-wishing equivalent of "Merry Christmas" to another… Continue
