  1. You can use one of the free blogging services like http://blogger.com or http://homeschoolblogger.com, or you can set up your own on a hosting account. Anyone, if you want. There are ways to limit who sees it, but what would be the point? Pretty secure except for comments, depending on how it's set up. Generally Not for the free ones. The hosting option can be as low as $5 a month If you you use http://homeschoolblogger.com there'd be clean ads. If you did your own via hosting, you don't even need ads. The free services have a variety of templates. Even using a hosting plan the scripts come with a few templates Definitely not. They also host blogs by pedophiles. My blog's a http://JackLewis.net. My wife's at http://LindaCarlton.net.
  2. I used to deliver pizza and was surprised to find that I got bigger tips from people living in mobile homes than people living in mansions (or big expensive houses). If I got 5% I was happy.
  3. The official "Ick Factor" equation works like this... (His age/2)+7 <= Her age So based on that, 29/2 = 14.5. 14.5+7=21.5. You are inside the "Ick Factor". But there are other factors, and people above have mentioned.
  4. I have the old blog posts to prove that I had even more frustration with XP than I am now having with Vista. It's just a change problem. Vista is a good OS. Matter of fact, my wife (who has XP on her laptop) has to reboot more often than I do.
  5. Last year I played around with an ubuntu install on my laptop. I installed it as a dual boot, secondary to my Vista OS. It ran okay, but it was during that time that my computer went belly up. I've been hesitant to reinstall it lest it prove to be the cause of the problems. But I was intrigued but the recent articles first touting Linux as DOA in the marketplace (ZDnet: Windows kicks Linux to the curb) and next promoting a marketing effort to improve Linux's popularity. (ZDNet: I am Linux). While I find Linux interesting, I was glad to be able to get back to Vista. However, I don't see it as a doomed OS, because there are too many people who prefer it for a variety of reasons, not all of them as silly as "It's not a product of evil capitalists". Personally I find it interesting albeit ultimately not that useful unless I'm unable to get one of the other two major OSes. So how safe is it? What are the odds that it was the Ubuntu install that trashed my laptop? I would like to re-install it if it's not going to be a problem.
  6. You only need to be ahead by one point to win. A 100-0 score is shameful. From what I hear the standard "spostmanlike" rule-of-thumb is to put in the second string once you're 20 points a head, and play defense only when you're ahead by more than 40 points. If my daughter had been playing on the winning team, I probably would have pulled her out at half time (when they were ahead 49-0) and told the coach a thing or two.
  7. I got a 1g cheapie from Wal-Mart last year, and used it a while. I mostly put sermons I downloaded from oneplace.com, but I haven't used it in months.
  8. I'm working on a site that will help in this area, but I now have to set it aside to work on other projects. The demo page is at http://somebody.needsyourprayers.com/. I'm only a few days away from completing it, so once my immediate workload subsides I may be able to finish it. The basic "How To" goes...
  9. I found this follow up reply on Boortz...
  10. Is there a link to the original source of this?
  11. To clear things up... A. These are chores they know how to do. B. These are chores they've seen me or my wife do. C. Every single time my wife has "helped" them with their chore, it's taken at least twice as long to get done and my wife winds up doing 90-95% of the work. D. Every single time my wife has "helped" them with their chores it grows into a repeated pattern of the kid wandering off, my wife angrily hunting them down and chewing them out before bringing them back to the chore, then the process repeats again. For those who think it is possible to "work with" kids, please give some real life examples. And not just one time; examples of it actually happening in a positive way on a repeated basis.
  12. But his lofty principals didn't prevent him from agreeing to work on Sunday? I guess he could have been a Seventh-Day whatever, but the article doesn't say.
  13. Some really big gaps in that explanation. What is today Israel, Gaza, the West Bank AND Jordan was "Palestine" about 50 some odd years ago. It was occupied by Jews and some Bedouin that wandered in and out. After the Holocaust the US and the UK decided that Jews would be safer in their own nation, and since the UK at the time had control of "Palestine" they divided it into three parts: a thin sliver along the coast for the Jews, everything east of the Jordan for the Bedouin and any other Arabs, and a large buffer zone. The Hashemites, and relative of the Arabs, immediately took over the Arab part, renamed in "Trans-Jordan" (later named Jordan) so the Arabs claimed the large buffer zone. Not long after that Israel was attacked by virtually every nation that it bordered, in an effort to destroy the nation and take the land away from the Jews. Israel proceeded to whoop some Arab hinny, and not only successfully defended the land they'd been given, but took a large part of Lebanon, Egypt, the Buffer Zone and Jordan. Israel returned most of what it took from Lebanon,Jordan and Egypt in exchange for peace agreements. Israel kept the Golan Heights, Gaza and the Buffer Zone. Arabs immediately began screaming that the Buffer Zone was actually "Palestine" and that Israel had "stolen" it from them, ignoring the nation of Jordan which had actually been stolen from them. So the land the Palestinians have been whining about, was never theirs. The massive amount of land given them was taken by the Hashemites, which they completely ignore. It's never been about land. It's about driving all Jews into the sea. The Palestinians will admit that, often, in Arabic, but Liberals tend to ignore that, and accuse Israel of genocide fro not allowing the Palestinians to continue murdering Israeli women and children.
  14. I'm still developing my new site, http://Somebody.NeedsYourPrayers.com. and I'm trying to think of appropriate categories for prayer requests. So far I have... salvation health financial safety mental/emotional revival guidance/wisdom unspoken ...These are what the prayers are for, not who they are for. Does anyone have any more suggestions.
  15. My wife and I have a debate. She says we should "work with" the kids to "show" them how to do chores. I say "working with" inevitably turns into "doing for" and simply teaches them that someone else will cover for them. They should do it on their own, with no help. We're talking about kids 9 or 10 and older doing usual household chores like dishes, laundry and picking up rooms.
  16. Mine says it's up-to-date with Is 2.whatever as beta?
  17. What generally happens is that the Media wills slowly change the definition of a word, then report on the changes as if that group has changed, rather than the definitions. "Christians more...than a decade ago", "Evangelical shifting views" etc.
  18. [quote]In the 1400's a law was set forth in England that a man was allowed to beat his wife with a stick no thicker than his thumb. Hence we have 'the rule of thumb'[/quote] [url=http://www.debunker.com/texts/ruleofthumb.html]A myth started by feminists[/url]. There is no historical basis for it. [quote]Many years ago in Scotland , a new game was invented. It was ruled 'Gentlemen Only...Ladies Forbidden'...and thus the word GOLF entered into the English language.[/quote] [url=http://www.snopes.com/language/acronyms/golf.asp]Also a myth with no basis in fac[/url]t. My guess is that someone made up a lot of this stuff just to see who would believe it. Always be skeptical about lists like this, and research them before believing the stuff.
  19. This may be low priority, but I thought ya'll would want to prayer for it if you had time. I own the domain NeedsYourPrayers.com. I've been wanting, for a long time, to create a site where people could post prayer requests and others could find people in need of prayer to pray for. The idea is that the prayer warriors would "subscribe" to a request, then be emailed each day with the list of their requests. The list would be a form that they would check off the requests as they are prayed for, the submit it to let the person requesting prayer know that someone prayed. The "Petitioner" would be able to each day log in and see a list of people (either real names or anonymous "usernames") who have prayed for that request that day. Requests would have a time limit, but can be renewed. members can also vote for requests to allow more serious requests to be more prominent and get more notice. I have the design concept finished and it can be seen at http://somebody.needsyourprayers.com/. The trouble is I did the design work during Christmas when my work load was low. Now that my work load has picked up, I can't afford to devote as much time to it. So I need prayer that I can get the resources and time to finish this. I think it will be a big help to a lot of people.
