A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day....04-20-05....It's Wednesday again???
Mama_Bear

Posted on 04/20/2005 12:10:29 AM PDT by Mama_Bear



A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day
Free Republic made its debut in September, 1996, and the forum was added in early 1997.   Over 100,000 people have registered for posting privileges on Free Republic, and the forum is read daily by tens of thousands of concerned citizens and patriots from all around the country and the world.
A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day was introduced on June 24, 2002. It's only a small room in JimRob's house where we can get to know one another a little better; salute and support our military and our leaders; pray for those in need; and congratulate those deserving. We strive to keep our threads entertaining, fun, and pleasing to look at, and often have guest writers contribute an essay, or a profile of another FReeper.
On Mondays please visit us to see photos of A FEW OF FR'S VETERANS AND ACTIVE MILITARY
If you have a suggestion, or an idea, or if there's a FReeper you would like to see featured, please drop one of us a note in FR mail.
We're having fun and hope you are!

050416-N-0295M-179 Wilmington, N.C. (Apr. 16, 2005) – The Lead and Opposing Solo F/A-18A Hornets, assigned to the U.S. Navy flight demonstration team, the "Blue Angels," perform the “mirror pass” in front of the crowd at the 2005 Coastal Carolina Air Show in Wilmington, N.C.

A God Of Absolutes

Read:
Malachi 3:6-12

I am the Lord, I do not change. -Malachi 3:6

Bible In One Year: Psalm 28-30

cover I am dubious about the accuracy of our bathroom scale. So I've learned to manipulate it in a self-satisfying manner. The little adjustment knob serves to vary the register, and if that becomes too much bother, I just lean a certain way. The idea is to get a favorable reading-hopefully one that is a few pounds less.

We live in an age when many people believe there are no absolutes. Self-serving behavior is rampant and tramples the moral law given for the protection of society. Our culture prides itself on "freedom" that is actually slavery to sin (Romans 6:16-17).

But there is a God of absolutes whose scales never lose their adjustment. With Him, a pound is a pound, right is right, and wrong is wrong. He says, "I am the Lord, I do not change" (Malachi 3:6).

For us as believers, this puts steel into our spiritual backbone. We gain confidence in the face of difficulty and are assured of the fulfillment of every divine promise.

If God were easily moved by every whim or notion, our eternal destiny would be in constant jeopardy. But because He is the Unchanging One, we "are not consumed" (v.6). "His compassions fail not. They are new every morning" (Lamentations 3:22-23). -Paul Van Gorder

Unchanging God who reigns above,
His truth remains forever;
And from this faithful God of love
No earthly trial can sever. -D. De Haan

Earth changes, but God and His Word stand sure! -Browning

Oh Goodie... two days in a row of an "OH NO" thread... I love it! Love your list Lori (thanks for HTML Help, BTW)...

:)

Clever & pretty.. thank you!

Both you & Billie have set a precedent.. we now can all develop our "oh, no" thoughts & have it in reserve.Mine will for sure have watching _____ (various movies)

Still lovely here 70s but hear we might have snow this weekend. sigh. I haven't burned my two big piles yet. Thought I would wait until before the rain to put it out safely. We have NOT had rain /snow for weeks & all is dry. I would hate to set ablaze the entire national park in my back yard (and pay the fine)

I normally do not eat breakfast but will make scratch pancakes this AM I think.. Last night's meal of Captain Morgans/tonic & some cheese left a bit of a void in my tummy this AM.

Have a good day all.. will look for you all later. Til then here are two pix for you of your state leader "The Arnold"... I miss him in movies.

A disappointed soft drink salesman returned from his Middle East assignment. His boss asked, "Why weren't you successful with the Arabs?"

The salesman explained, "When I got posted in the Middle East, I was very sure to make a good sales pitch as our product was virtually unknown there. I didn't know to speak Arabic, so I planned to convey the message through 3 posters. My first poster was a man crawling through the hot desert sand, totally exhausted and panting. Second, the man is drinking our soft drink and third, our man is now totally refreshed. Then these posters were pasted all over the place"

"That should have worked," said the boss.

The salesman replied, "Well, not only did I not speak Arabic but I didn't realize that Arabs read from right to left."

Good morning all and what a pretty post, ((Mama_Bear)). I didn't work yesterday and really missed FReepers. My old laptop has bit the dust and my new one won't be here for about another week. In the meantime, I can only look around here at work. Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday.

Now, as for baking a pineapple pie for Wolfie, I would have to have a slice of that as it's my favorite.

I love shopping too and Charleston looked to be a great place to do it. (Unfortunately, last summer we were only there sightseeing for a day a half - no time to shop on that trip.) But, Aquamarine recently went to Charleston, so I cyber-shopped with her. :-)

Have a pleasant day, ((((((Gail)))))).

Love your list Lori (thanks for HTML Help, BTW)...

Thank you, and you're welcome. You are a REALLY fast learner, I hardly remember the lessons. ;-)

I guess I should admit that I actually haven't helped you at all with html......and that is a GOOD thing. LOL! Dutchess can attest to the fact that I tend to go into just a wee bit too much detail when trying to explain something. I've been known to take a fairly simple concept and complicate it beyond all comprehension. LOL. The teaching is best left to the 'other' sistahs. ;-)

Don't know if you have heard, but our beleaguered Governor has come under fire recently and is losing popularity fast here - if the polls are correct. He has taken on the failing educational system and has riled up the very powerful teacher's union. His plan is to reward the good teachers and get rid of the bad ones. Sounds like a good plan to me. But, heaven forbid a bad teacher should ever be fired. Between that and his attempts to balance the budget here, he has got them running scared. We are hearing anti-Schwarzenegger ads on our local radio station daily. I sure hope he hangs tough. He has a rough road ahead of him and there is a lot at stake.

Have a good day, sistah.

I'm sure wolfie will share. (Yeah right.......just like he shares his donuts! Take my word for it, you DON'T want to get between him and a glazed donut!) LOL

Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday.

You too, Texagirl.

Oh, I don't know about that. But, it sure was a quick and easy post to put together. :-)

BTW, I see that I forgot to repair an extra space in the border of the first table. Do you have a problem with extra line breaks in your html when you copy from notepad to the posting window? I have had lots of them that I have to close up. I can't see what is causing the breaks, but I changed my notepad preferences and unchecked "wordwrap". Will see it that solves the problem next time.

The only shopping I truly hate to do is for shoes. I wear 5.5's in joggers, 5's in sandals and in some dress shoes a 6. The 5's are hard to find, especially in a flat ADULT shoe! Because there is no consistancy in sizes from brand to bran you literaly have to try them on so you can't order online.

I've heard plenty of excuses as to why my size isn't carried too. They go to the border states...last time I looked we are being invaded by those south of the border. They no longer make that size is perhaps the best one I've heard.

LOL! That's a good one. But it seems to me that my size is hard to find too, especially on sale. Half the population wear my size. Invariably, I will come across a really good sale and all they will have left is 5's and 10's, LOL.

Sounds like the same problems are universal since we have introduced testing of children and made results of each school available there has been so much opposition from the National Union of Teachers. One is amazed because surely no good teacher has anything to fear they will get rewarded with pay/promotion and the bad teachers will be either released or if the school has problems recruiting and has to keep them at least they will not be rewarded for bad teaching.

Yes, it is a most frustrating problem and apparently not just our problem. California schools are a dismal failure and EVERYONE wants them fixed.....until someone actually identifies the real problems and tries to fix them. The conservatives want the waste stopped and the dead wood weeded out, the liberals want more money dumped into the system.

I think that our Governor may have been a bit naive thinking he could take on the teacher's union, but I have faith in him. He truly is trying to straighten out the mess that the liberals have created in this state.

Well, that's odd since the html text for that is one I set up, and I hadn't noticed the extra space in others you've posted. Strange that you would even 'have' to 'repair an extra space' in the topper. I looked at the source code, and there's a strange command I have never seen before! < /table>TER & g t ;< /center> (only without the spaces - I have no idea what "TER" means - I know the & g t ; is a right bracket, but what TER means I don't have a clue!

My wordwrap is checked. I don't have a problem with extra line breaks when posting from notepad to the posting window. There is something different about our characters per inch though. Remember we've had similar problems before where our line breaks occur - you and I.

I do not know if it is true in the States as well as the UK but certainly unions are much stronger in the public sector than the private. I suppose at the end of the day in the private sector one is answerable to shareholders and the bottom line is profit whereas in the public sector all you try to do is obtain more money from government whether it be local or national.

and I hadn't noticed the extra space in others you've posted

Could be because I fixed it, but I don't remember. My Arizona post last week (the first one that I formatted in Notepad) was a total mess....line breaks everywhere. They are easy to fix, but time-consuming and it is easy to miss one, like I did in your top table.

< /table>TER & g t ;< /center>

I have no clue where that came from or what it is. This may be one of those mysteries that we can't solve, but I will continue to create my posts in Notepad. I just need to be very careful when I am correcting and closing up the spaces to catch them all.

I sure hope you don't run into this problem with Notepad, Dolly. I would have surely have given up had my first attempt at posting been so completely messed up. At least I have been posting threads long enough to know how to correct the problem. Let's hope that this is a problem peculiar to only MY machine. LOL

Yes we have had them quite a few years mainly in the London area, we don't have one in Ashford.

On the other hand we have plenty of other eating in and out places. Chinese, loads of Indian and of course Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) we actually have 3 Kentucky's and 3 MacDonald's in Ashford as you can see quite a strong American influence.

World premiere of Hitch Hikers Guide to Galaxy tonight just heard on the news.

I had a similar problem with notepad the other day in just posting photos from Yahoo when I did preview all I had was boxes with the dreaded red x and that was because of extra spaces that notepad put in.

I had prepared the post earlier saved it to the hard disk and then called it up to post and boy was it a mess it took me quite a few minutes to edit all the extra spaces and characters out. I had not had that problem when doing the same thing with word. I thought this was very strange because if anything I would have thought notepad would have been less likely than word to have caused this as I thought notepad was just a text editor.

Had a sudden thought does notepad by default put hard spaces in and maybe I have word set not to put hard spaces in just a thought but that could be the problem.

When I mentioned it to my husband last night, that was what he said he thought could be the problem. He suggested I uncheck "wordwrap". But I don't know if that is going to solve the problem or not. I guess we'll see.

My little doxie has gotten something stuck in his paw and I think I am going to have to run him into the Vet. I am not good with doctoring my pets and he is not good about letting anyone touch his feet. So, I'll be back when I get him back home. Hopefully this won't be terribly traumatic for him (or me!).

My apology to you, Miss Billlie, for entirely missing your thread yesterday!
One of those 'on the road' days, and by the time I got groceries, tried a new recipe (good and easy one for salmon croquettes!), ate dinner and settled in at the computer and waded through the thread to the end...I was plumb tuckered.

Noting that Mama_Bear hinted she might play copy cat today, I gleefully pulled up her Bear Family Photo Album to gather ammo for today....last thing I 'membered before I went into hibernation...:))

Came to this morning with keys imprinted on my forehead, and saw I had slept 11 hours, stirring only once at 7!!

Sure enough, here was this!
" 7. I've been organizing the Bear Family Photo Album ......for LadyX."


Goody goody goody!!!
Going to see what I might use..:)) - bbl

I will have to check to see if I had wordwrap on as well because that could be answer maybe that put in hard spaces and characters have to give that a go for the future, thanks.

Hope that Doxie is that a dog or a cat is OK and of course her mommy is as well. I think sometimes we suffer more than they do when something like that happens.
