    I want to recommend a book I found while browsing on Amazon. It is, 'Jesus of Nazareth Son of God/Son of man' Jesus of Nazareth: Son of God/Son of Man is a fresh, new approach to the theory of Jesus being both fully God and fully man. It is written in lay language, and recounts what the Bible says of Christ.

    I almost never start a thread, but something happened yesterday that horrified me and just broke my heart. I can't stop thinking about it and just have to share it. I was looking in the newspaper for a kitten to adopt. The only ad I could find was this ad for kittens for $5.00 each. I called and the man who answered said he used to give them away, but he started charging for them when he found out hey were being used for shark bait! (I live near the sea) I was unbelievably horrified and urged the man to...

    My thread, (6/5/16) 'More pics, animated gifs to make you smile' was pulled. Reason given; 'Photos copied and pasted here and not attributed to the photographer nor their publishers are copy right restricted'. The mods were exactly right to pull it. It was my own fault. We were all just having lots of fun with it, and I just got carried away and posted photos that I'd had in my files for years and had no clue where they came from. I understand perfectly why we can't do this, and I apologize. I just wasn't thinking. Let this be a...

    That Day This has been a work-in-progress and began the day after the attack at the World Trade Center and Pentagon. I survived the attack itself by being late to work that day, but I lost many people who were not so lucky. I created the page to honor those I lost, those that America had lost and all of those dedicated, caring human beings who responded to this wanton cowardly act and who we refer to simply as heroes. To help sustain our nation resolve while we respond to this horrific attack. Images of that day are burnt...

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday asked the State Guard to monitor a U.S. military training exercise dubbed "Jade Helm 15" amid Internet-fueled suspicions that the war simulation is really a hostile military takeover. The request comes a day after more than 200 people packed a meeting in rural Bastrop County and questioned a U.S. Army commander about whether the government was planning to confiscate guns or implement martial law. "It is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property rights and civil liberties will not be infringed," Abbott wrote. "By monitoring the...
  • TX GOV ORDERS GUARD TO MONITOR TOWN 'TROOP TRAINING'...

Abbott apparently has heard the concern and ordered the Guard to monitor the training and U.S. military personnel. “To address concerns of Texas citizens and ensure that Texas communities remain safe, secure and informed about military procedures occurring in their vicinity, I am directing the TExas State Guard to monitor...

    My icons at the bottom of the screen have quite working. They just blink and don't bring up the site. (They've also moved to the top, and want them at the bottom of the screen.) My 'favorites' 'button' has disappeared. I cannot send out email. I get a message, 'put in an address before you click send'. I DO put in an email address before I click 'send' of course. I have used 'Cleaner', 'Malwarebytes' and Avast. Nothing works. They all say after I run them, 'everythings in good shape'- but it's not. Same problems. Can anyone help?
