    For now I see the true old times are dead,
    When every morning brought a noble chance,
    And every chance brought out a noble knight."

    already mounts the parapet.

    I don't know why we still have the same problems on these highly advanced machines as we did when we were working on 386's!

    I've been in word the last 40 minutes or so writing down my wedding toast. I have one window open on the Canteen and a couple on Word, which shouldn't take much memory. Yet Word keeps going NR on me!

    OY!!

    Fortunately, it appears we will not have any big snow between now and then. We're under flood warning now from the snow-melt and rain we've had over the last day or so. We were up over 60 yesterday and in the high 50's today - one of the fastest melt-offs I've ever seen.

    Almost ready - I need a new pair of shoes. Can't walk my daughter up the aisle in the decrepit pair of soft shoes I wear to work everyday. I think one of my sons made off with my Bostonians.

    _ LL things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

    Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

    And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.
    For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?

    Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.

    What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

    But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

    Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

    What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

    For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

    _ ARE any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?

    Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

    Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
    If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.

    I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?

    But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.

    Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?

    Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.

    Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

    Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

    _ ND I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.

    I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.

    For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
    For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?

    Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?

    I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.

    So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.

    Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.

    For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.

    According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

    For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

    Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

    Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

    If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.

    If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

    Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

    If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

    Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

    For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

    And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

    Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your's;

    Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are your's;

    And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.

    No complaints here. But I'd throw it all away to be able to talk once more to my Brothers who fell - Jack Murdock, Jerry Menter, Gunny Emrick and others.

    They gave all, and their sacrifice, despite a lot of self-serving lip-service by present day politicos, remains unacknowledged.

    They are among the patriots who built this Nation and preserved it through two and a quarter centuries.

    God Bless Them and all who serve!

    Good evening, Radu!

    The "too mean to die" comes from an auto accident I had almost 50 years ago. I was stationed at USNH Quantico and one of the officers I served with told me I was too mean to die - suggested I get a T-shirt that said that.

    I've kept it going ever since.

    Can't remember if I related this narrative here. Last Thursday, after the minor snowfall we had Wednesday evening that tied traffic up for hours on the evening commute, I was walking to the office from the Metro. I was surprised by how little treatment had been applied to the sidewalks - they were hazardous.

    I went into the Pret a Manger at the corner of 11th and F Streets - got my coffee and a croissant and walked out to go to my office on F Street - about 100 yards away across 11th street. Walking into the intersection, I quickly saw the the street was a sheet of ice. I reduced the interval of my steps to several inches and moved slowly across the intersection.

    Looking to my left, I saw a car coming down 11th Street - he slammed his breaks on and went into a 360. He came to rest no more than 5-6 yards from me.

    Two possible conclusions:
    1) I'm too mean to die.
    2) More likely: The Lord is looking out for me.

    The Camden Line - the one I use - is running one train in each direction morning and afternoon. At this juncture, my office is expected to open. I sent a message saying I would not be in tomorrow - transit issues.

    Regardless of whether I could make it Downtown, I'm not prepared to walk from Metro Station to my office, which entails crossing at least two streets and negotiating a downhill between "G" and "F" streets.

    I'll pass on taking that hazard on.

    THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM!
    And for the Preservation of the Valiant
    Israeli Nation!



    "The Apostle Paul"
    Ninth Century Manuscript
    Monastery of St. Gall, Switzerland



    _ ND I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.

    For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified
    And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.

    And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

    That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

    Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:

    But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

    Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

    But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

    But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

    For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

    Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

    Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

    But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

    For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.

    Amazing Grace

    By John Newton

    Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me!
    I once was lost, but now am found;
    Was blind, but now I see.
    .
    ’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
    And grace my fears relieved;
    How precious did that grace appear
    The hour I first believed!
    .
    Through many dangers, toils and snares,
    I have already come;
    ’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
    And grace will lead me home.
    .
    The Lord has promised good to me,
    His Word my hope secures;
    He will my Shield and Portion be,
    As long as life endures.
    .
    Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
    And mortal life shall cease,
    I shall possess, within the veil,
    A life of joy and peace.
    .
    The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
    The sun forbear to shine;
    But God, Who called me here below,
    Will be forever mine.
    .
    When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
    Bright shining as the sun,
    We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
    Than when we’d first begun.

    THE PRAYER AT VALLEY FORGE

    (Click)


    IN THE COLDEST and darkest days of the American Revolution, General George Washington raised his prayers for the survival of his beleaguered Army and of the new Nation. The Lord answered his prayers, upheld his Army through a punishing nadir to everlasting Glory, and bestowed His Manifold Blessings upon the new Nation.


    Lafayette

    Steuben

    Pulaski

    FROM THE BRAVE, albeit weary, ill-equipped, and untrained volunteers who marched into Valley Forge on 19 December 1777 arose, with the help of some gallant friends from across the waves, the cohesive fighting force that became the United States Army, global defender of Freedom and scourge of Tyrants.



    AS GENERAL WASHINGTON lifted his prayers on high in that bleak Winter, let our prayers now rise like a fountain for our Heroes in the American Armed Forces who seek to secure the benefits of Freedom on behalf of a people hungry for them. Father, look on our prayers for them with favor, guide their steps in righteousness and gather them in the shelter of Your Healing Wings. Bless and uphold them in the performance of their Mission. Through Jesus Christ, Your Son, with the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever, Amen.

    Celtic Crosses ~ Stirling, Scotland



    _ OR the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

    For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

    Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
    For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

    For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

    But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

    But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

    Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

    For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

    But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

    And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

    That no flesh should glory in his presence.

    But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

    That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
