  1. Eons ago we sailors had a conversation that if you had to seek medical care due to a sunburn you be brought up on charges of damaging government property. Never looked into it, but a few of the officers thought "it sounds right."
  2. Not seen on any other major news network except this one https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/lefts-problem-men-bible
  3. Would it be possible to form a small group of like-minded Catholics?
  4. The fewer the laws, the less mud in the water to be stirred up.
  5. It is not so much which translation or version of the Bible one uses but the way one lives their life reading their Bible. One does not need to be knowledgeable of ancient languages to understand what the Bible is and means. When children see and hear their parents reading the Bible and living their lives to Biblical principles then the translation and/or version is not all that important.

    Perhaps a little off topic, but ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMnjX-VgPMk
  7. As we type, enjoying a cup of store brand straight, black and hot with a church grandmother's home made soda bread Now off to the retina world!
  8. Just popped in my head this weekend while putting up a shed.
  9. This is my tank. There are many like it, but this one is mine...
  10. I cannot think of a former British colony that purposely went back to their pre-Colonial ways.
  11. On an opposite note, one of the few actors who, imo, warrant a nation-wide obituary notice, was born today in 1907, Marion Robert Morrison.
  12. It looks like Canada is becoming worse than the U.S. https://www.standingforfreedom.com/2023/05/not-ashamed-of-the-gospel-of-christ-canadian-teen-arrested-at-protest-while-handing-out-bibles/
  13. Perhaps the most difficult verses to have patience with is Romans 12: 18-19 E.S.V. "18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. 19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
  14. A definition of the classic meaning of what is a man. A short description on his life and persistence can be found on Wiki. Pardon me for sounding a little bitter, but the accolades that go to singers and actors are better put to use associating them with folks such as Mr. Brandt.
  15. FRANKLIN GRAHAM AT CHRISTIAN MEDIA CONVENTION: EVERY ‘DEMON FROM HELL’ HAS BEEN ‘TURNED LOOSE’ IN SOCIETY Franklin Graham is the prodigal son of the late Billy Graham. As an aside, I only saw this on the Fox website. I did not see it on the websites of A.B.C., C.B.S., N.B.C., nor did I hear it on N.P.R. On a similar note, in a few months many parents will be going to "Back-to-school" sales. This one from Target is disgustingly evil. Target's Gay Pride collection has been linked to a controversial designer: Abprallen's Erik Carnell, who is an outspoken Satanist whose brand features occult imagery and messages like "Satan respects pronouns" on brand apparel, Fox News Digital reported separately. He is also known for aggressive messaging and phrases, including "Burn down the cis-tem," which have been featured on the website along with one that says "homophobe headrest" with an image of a guillotine. Carnell explained in an Instagram post that Satan represents "passion, pride and liberty" and "loves all LGBT+ people."
  16. Agree with economy and would add Supreme Court and immigration.
  17. The problem(s) are not so much the politicians as the voters.
  18. From George Washington's farewell address "... Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports..." John Adams "Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." The over 200 year old process of U.S. Federal elections is fine, and as far as my limited knowledge of world politics goes, one of the best. As just two of many quotes I posted above, it is not the system that is flawed but what the system parts have become. The U.S. has lost its once good Christian-oriented morality. It is evil people, ie the Democratic Party, that has collected the secular power of government to rule over others. The Democratic Party's absolute lies of saying otherwise is the end product of the digestive system of the adult male bovine.
  19. Good points. Rare to have a slab foundation here.
  20. At one time the temperature outside my house was in the low to mid-teens below zero. The temperature in my crawlspace was in the low to mid 40's. I would say better foundation insulation is the answer to a potential frozen pipe issue. The one problem with water pipe insulation is if there is a break in the pipe, it may be awhile before you find it due to being hidden by the insulation. You can always allow all -- both hot and cold --water faucets to be open to a trickle if your worried about potentially busted water pipes.
  21. An older book (1942) but an excellent one by the former Military Vicar of the Armed Forces of the United States. https://www.amazon.com/road-victory-Francis-J-Spellman/dp/B007GAM5R8
