Meanwhile, there is a war in Iraq, an energy crisis, an impending global food shortage, and our beloved Congress is debating whether or not hybrid cars--which run too quietly--might pose a danger to blind people.  Can we fire all these guys?  Click here: - Congress to Introduce Bill to Protect Blind People From Hybrid Cars - Politics | Republican Party |

Here's an interesting piece on Abraham Lincoln's commitment to Christianity.  To put it plainly, Lincoln rejected it.  Click here: Change of Subject - Observations, reports, tips, referrals and tirades | Chicago Tribune | Blog

Here's a website devoted to recipes using ramen noodles.  This must be very helpful to college students everywhere.   How about some kind of a ramen/spam dish?  Click here:

Finally, for the pleasingly plump, this falls in the "I knew it" department.  According to insurance tables, given my height (5'10'') and age (53), I'm supposed to weight 169 lbs (what?).  I haven't weighed 169 since I was seventeen!  I work out several times a week, I watch what I eat (carefully), and after dropping nearly 30 lbs a while back, my weight has stabilized at about 182-185 lbs.  Come to find out, this is much healthier than if I weighed what the stupid insurance chart says I'm supposed to weigh!   Click here: Death Risk Lower for Overweight People - Weight Loss and Weight Management Information Including Popular Diet Plan

So much for the myth of "Honest Abe." It seems that Lincoln forgot of his mocking the divinity of Jesus when running for a political office. We always build up mythical reputations for sinful men and later find them wanting in the light of truth.

Do we really need another Study Bible????

It's becoming suspiciously more like a money-making strategy for publishing companies than actually fulfilling a need in the Christian world.

When I read it has been praised by the terms "filthy" and "sick", that is a clear indication we are returning to the Tower of Babel.

I think I'll stick to my Reformation Study Bible.

I'll stick to my Concordia Study Bible.

Regarding exercise - Kim, you always had one of the all time classic lines ....... "When I get the urge to exercise, I lay down on the couch until the urge goes away!"

If I would have listened to your advice, I probably wouldn't need shoulder, back and hip surgery today!

I've given up trying to figure out how elected officials make their decisions ( I haven't; I just can't voice my accurate conclusions anyplace on the Web - $$$). The other night some local advocate for good government was talking about some of the ways pork could be cut from the current year budget. One of the examples he cited was a funded project to "study Ukranian Easter eggs." Oink, oink.

I'm glad that our omniscient God has the overall plan for the future of human-kind, because these politicians sure don't.

Lincoln also has been revered for the Emancipation Proclamation. The problem was that it only applied to "rebel" held territory. Slaves in Union controlled areas were not freed.

William Seward (Sec of State) mocked the EP saying, "We show our sympathy with slavery by emancipating slaves where we cannot reach them and holding them in bondage where we can set them free." (The Real Lincoln, page 36).

In the presidential election, in his hometown of Springfield, IL 20 of 23 ministers opposed him because of his religious views.

Good 'ole "honest" Abe.

Obviously, present day politicians and their advisors didn't invent political 'spin'. Something could also be said about the forefathers of the Religious Right (and Left).
