  1. If you do read it, how about adding your review, pro or con. TIA
  2. Upon the recomendation of a friend, I've just finished reading this book and do recommend it. I've also listened to a 5 part interview about the book, and have done some look up of reviews of the book, both pro and con. First and foremost, it is written as fiction. That is evident from the beginning, so no one should be deceived from that standpoint. Someone complained about a lack of "character development" in the story line. They missed the point. The focus of this book isn't about the charcters in the book, themselves. Enough info is given to carry the story line. That was all that was ne
  3. Thanks for your post. It offered me the opportunity to continue the research that I began earlier when this thread was posted. Is your opinion based on actually hearing his message in PA or are you comments speculation presented as facts? What's wrong with giving the same message/testimony to new groups of listeners? Are you sure that he said what you implied with your comment on drinking? Are you sure that he makes 2 sales pitches for the purpose of selling those calls during his message? Here's an audio link to Phil's message given in PA. http://www.zackmassey.com/2012/05/27/duck-d
  4. More Research - Found these on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xklv5Vz_Tnk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DApqTMJYGMU&feature=related
  5. Info on Duck Dynasty. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duck_Dynasty http://www.aetv.com/duck-dynasty/ A review: http://thepioneerwoman.com/entertainment/2012/06/duck-dynasty/ Reader comment from the announcement of the series. http://realscreen.com/2012/02/08/ae-to-premiere-reality-show-about-duck-callers/ Quote: Wonderful show A & E ! I love it. There is so much thrash on tv anymore. This is such a wonderful family show. And by the way, great job a raising such respectful grandchildren! This is a show that families can watch together. By the way, my favorites are Uncle Sye and Phil. Kee
  6. It's now 97 and the sun is getting low in the sky at quarter to 7 in the evening. Supposed to be 101 tomorrow. The good news is that it's supposed to be in the low 90's next week. BTW, our average high, this time of year is 90. We sure could use some of those days that cause the average to be only 90!
  7. Jerry, they don't build them like they used to! Prior to getting a gas pack we had electric heat with a 3 ton AC unit in our home. Installed in 1984, we replaced it in 2009 when the AC compressor failed. Like you, replacing the compressor couldn't be justified. Especially, since we were told the heating side wouldn't last another season -- two winters earlier. At the time we researched our HVAC options, we were told the average life expectancy of units, these days, is 10 years. Told the same thing about household appliances when we had to replace our 1984 refrigerator about 4 years ago. So
  8. Today's high was 98 with heat index of 107-109. Tomorrow 93, then two days of 100 to follow. Lost AC late yesterday afternoon. It was hot inside and outside when I left home this early this morning to help a friend. Work to be done without benefit of AC, BTW. Came home early afternoon to a hot house. AC repair promised for Thursday. Another restless/sleepless night in store. Phone rang. HVAC repairman would be here in 20 minutes. Snapped the old thermostat out of the base and popped in another one. 30 second repair. Cool air! The house is slowly cooling down, as I type. It's truly a ble
  9. John, you said it far better than I can. About 18 months ago I thought I wanted/needed a study Bible. Picked one out and better half gave it to me at Christmas. It's starting to fall apart and will soon be replaced with one only containing scripture and maybe a concordance. 1. Only after receiving it and reading the "fine print" discovered the following. "The Zondervan KJV Study Bible is an adaptation of the Zondervan NASB Study Bible. Both of these titles are adaptations of the NIV Study Bible: 10th Anniversary Edition. The following acknowledgements recognize the contributions of thos
  10. 76 right now (6:05 am). Was 99 yesterday. Thank the Lord this heat wave is to break today and rain is in the forecast for later today. Side note: I grew up on a farm and we didn't have air conditioning. Thus, being able to escape the heat (especially at night) is truly a blessing to be counted. Thank God that He gave mankind the way to escape the heat for eternity.
  11. I have a King James Study Bible, and rarely ever use the "study" part of it. That is once I read the following after buying the Bible. "The Zonderman KJV Study Bible is an adaptation of the Zonderman NASB Study Bible. Both titles use the same basic note structure that appears in the NIV Study Bible, 10th Anniversary Edition." Most of the time I use the following Study Aids: Noah Websters 1828 American Dictionary http://www.1828-dictionary.com/ (Also includes 1913 definitions) Bible Gateway with default set to King James Bible - use as a concordance and to compare scripture in other versi
  12. Isn't that exactly what the fed wants? Give everything to them to setup and manage? Why not just hand over any shreds of states rights that MAY remain to the feds and be done with it?
  13. Powers given regulatory agencies and czars is producing an effective end run around Congress. Its ability to goven is becoming null and void. The same method is being used with the Supreme Court. The "balance of power" between the three branches of government is rapidly disappearing. How long before 2 of the 3 will exist in name only?
  14. That bears repeating with emphasis! As far back as I can remember, our parents gave us as much responsiblity as our age would permit. As the elder of 5, not only did I experience this, I watched it happen as my siblings grew. An often heard phrase: Act your age! You're too old for that.
  15. Do the want a traffic light? Or a bridge to nowhere?
  16. And the rest of the story...... There were multiple victims involved in this teen's activities.
  17. Ryan lifted in prayer. God does work miracles. I'm living proof of one. According to my parents, I was born premature, after she tripped and fell, weighing in at just a little over 3 lbs. Born in a farm house, with a country doctor in attendance. Neither my parents nor the doctor thought I would survive. God does work in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform.
  18. CORRECTION: As originally published, this story referred to Tifton 85 grass as a genetically-modified product, which is incorrect; it is actually a hybrid of Bermuda grass. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57459357/gm-grass-linked-to-texas-cattle-deaths/ That's a small sigh of relief, as hybrids generally don't reproduce themselves in the same way as non-hybrids. Thus, less danger of this grass being spread throughout the environment. If I understand correctly, that's not the case with GM reproduction. Is mankind "engineering" some of the elements that will be part of tribulation? We're
  19. Where was the 3 yr old's mother while the hair cutting was done? According to the report, the teens took turns whacking off her hair. On another note: We need a lot more "eye for an eye" judges on the bench. Opinion coming up................ When a child (under 18) is old enough to be charged with a crime, they should be tried in regular court just like anyone else. The preciding judge should have the discretion to sentence the quilty according to the age of the person. Naturally, there'd be some standards in place on this. As a general rule an 8 yr old shouldn't face the same punishment
  20. Local news just said he was fired becaue of "community unrest" following the event. Ever heard the term "mob rule"?
  21. So, according to her, Jesus and the Apostles were a "bigoted, unenlightened man from a barbaric time in history". Matthew 7:14-16 KJB 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. 15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Jeremiah 23:1-2 KJB Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the Lord. 2 Therefore thus saith the Lord God of I
  22. Heartstrings, thank you for sharing your vacation story. There's one important point that shines brightly in what you did and just said. You went on a trip with your family and didn't leave the Lord at home to wait for your return to your usual "routine". In and of itself there's nothing wrong with taking a break from work, school, and even housekeeping. Providing same doesn't put a person into debt to do so. Going on vacation is just a change in activities for a few days. IMHO, the problem arises when a family packs everything they need for the trip, except the Bible. While on vacation
  23. Ouch, Jerry. You just hit a big sore spot! Tax dollars being spent to benefit a select few, whether business or individuals. It seems, now-a-days, the spigot is wide open with tax dollars pouring out of every governmental level's coffers. Case in point. Massive amounts of money are being spent in this region for walking trails connecting greenways. Pedestrian bridges are being built over major highways so a select few can walk or bike along these trails from point A to point B. If memory serves, it was recently announced that a major road will be facing construction headaches and frequent
