I've heard Alaska was settled by Russians. Does anybody know if this is true? If so, I wonder what "Alaska" means in Russian?

My sister lives in Alaska, but she will be moving to Billings, Montana, before the end of this month/year. She got a job at a hospital there (she's a Physician's Assistant). We (our family) are so glad to have her back in the lower 49 (that's what Alaskans call all the states outside of Alaska :wink: ). :D

Seriously ... my grandmother wanted his name to rhyme with his older brother's name. Care to guess? Yep, Nebraska! I'm really not making this up.

All I can say is, thank goodness I wasn't a junior!

Where, in Alaska?

I've been there once. My husband and I took our "anniversary vacation" there last year (3rd week of September, because our wedding anniversary is Sept. 21). We flew into Anchorage, my sister met us and my mom there, and then we drove 6 hours to Delta Junction where she lives, stopping along the way to take pictures and get a caribou burger. :D (I don't recommend them). From Delta Jct we then drove in this big loop, stopping in Fairbanks to do some shopping and then in Talkeetna (near Denali National Park), where we stayed for 3 days (one of which was our actual anniversary, 8 years :D ). Most of the week was cloudy but we did get some nice sunny (but still cold) weather in Seward, which is near the Kenai Fjords. I would only go back if I could go in the summertime, although I don't know if I could deal with the almost round-the-clock sunshine! :shock: :D It was still a great vacation. :D

On my Dad's side of the family there are a lot of Johns and Toms and on my Mom's there's a lot of Joes.

The first one in this country on my Dad's side, before this even was a country, was an Abraham (kind of fitting) but no Nebraskas or Alaskas! Although some distant relative of ours was a governor of Nebraska back in the day.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
