Men Are Happier People


  • If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.
  • If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla and Four-eyes.
  • When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50.. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.
  • When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.
  • A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
  • A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.
  • A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel ..
  • The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.
  • A woman has the last word in any argument.
  • Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
  • A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
  • A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
  • A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
  • A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
  • A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
  • A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.
  • A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.
  • A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.
  • Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
  • Women somehow deteriorate during the night.
  • Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
  • A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.
A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing! (Amen)

Orlando Prayer Booths

OK.. Normally I'll pass this on to some close friends via e-mail or msn, but I felt this needed a more prominent position in my electronic catalog.

Orlando, Fl has installed these lovely prayer booths, and I must say. If I wasn't a Christian, I'd think they were the best thing since sliced bread.

But Since I am a Christian, I can assure you that what this world needs does not exist inside a phone booth. Chalk this up to just one more way the Devil is pied-pipering our nation straight to Hell with beliefs that ANYTHING other than Jesus Christ must be a better way to Heaven.

Let me Read you the bottom line as it is a bit hard to interpret from the pictures.

"This device exists to facilitate and control prayer in public space. Improper use may result in a penalty or fine.

Please avoid this booth if you are sensitive to or feel threatened by actions that are religious in nature"


Let me paint a scenario for you..
  1. Man asks co-worker if he's noticed the new prayer booths
  2. Co-worker says "if you don't leave me along, I'm going to go down there and pray for you!"
  3. Man sues co-worker for religious harassment
  4. Co-worker goes to jail for "threatening actions of a religions nature"

Welcome to America!

Read the whole story with more pictures here. Enjoy!

Emily's 5th Birthday

It's been AGES since I posted any pictures. Shame on me! Honestly, with the snailnet I have at home, and the rush, rush, rush of the time I DO spend at Mom's house, I'm rarely able to upload anything sometimes. But here these are. Enjoy.

Emily Loves Scooby Doo!!

Nanny and Paw Paw (Jen's parents)

The Kids had a great time, but it was REALLY windy outside.

The party was at a local park there in Morganton, Emily Loves to climb.

Naomi and Emily are virtually inseparable when they're together.

Of course Abby has to be the boss of them ALL!
The Scooby Doo Birthday Cake tasted awesome.

Let me tell you... Tim couldn't get the candles lit, so Emily blew them out for everyone anyway! She's a trooper, Just like her daddy :) Almost made me cry... almost

Here's Scooby!
My Self-Portrait, because I'm just like that.Tim wanted me to do his portrait too.
The end.... Happy Birthday Emily! .. (better late then never)

Where will YOU spend Eternity?

Something has been on my heart and mind for a couple of weeks now. The internet has opened so many doors of communication around the world. I have made friends with people over the years, that I will most likely never meet face to face. You learn to know each other through time from just talking to them and watching them interact with other chatters.
I have been a regular online chatter for 10 years now. I have met and witnessed to many, and have tried to be a living testimony in word and deed to those who chat with me.
I have to ask though, dear Reader- Where will YOU spend Eternity?
Let me tell you the last few types of people I have chatted with. There is the wonderful caring person who prays daily to saints and statues. A very sincere person who thinks that we are all praying to the same "God".
Another one is so steeped in tradition and laws and rules that they are burdened by a heavy taskmaster with no hope, only condemnation and guilt.
Yet another one I spoke with recently, would use the words Thank God in every sentence, very sincere, but told me that sins come in various degrees of severity. This person believes that by sinning a "lesser" sin of getting drunk, it will keep away the wicked tempting voices to commit a more serious type of sin. Preferring to beg God's forgiveness for a "lesser sin" instead. How many of us are just like this person? Labeling sins to assuage our guilt for choosing to sin? How often do we repeatedly sin the same sin, because we think that it's "not as bad as doing something else".
As I chat with these dear people, they often agree that I am right as I use God's Word, and encourage them. Yet, they still stick to what they have been brought up or taught, or the habits they are comfortable with.
Change can be such an act of faith that very few of us even attempt it. What habits or beliefs do you cling to just because it's the way you have always done it, and your family would be scandalized if you were to deviate from such tradition?

What do you believe? Does it match what God's Word the Bible says? Do you know where you will go when you die?
If any of you reading this desire to know what God says about YOUR eternity, please email Br. Ted or myself. We would love to show you from God's Word -"the Way, the Truth, and the Life".

Be careful; the [AQI] might get you!

It sounds like something you'd tell your children. Insert your favorite fairy tail and you have the beginnings of a scary story, or even worse; A Fable!

What our modern day liberal media does with its acronyms can seem so simple sometimes, but rest assured, there is always a hidden agenda!

We saw it with the infamous Guantanamo Bay. Where our our country and our military men were dragged through the political mud over the acts of a FEW men following orders.


Following Orders? Surely we don't do that in the military.. No.. I'm sure we allow all of our military men to do whatever they please with prisoners of war without their superior officers knowledge. Yeah Right! But that's not my point at all!

My point is: How many of us can spell Guantanamo? I, personally, had to Google it! Therein lies the excuse for our media to dumb-down; simplify; under-qualify the place where our country has made so many advances on the war against terrorism. Not only for our safety, but for that of many other countries around the world, which have benefited from the (strong word coming) interrogations of (another one here) terrorists held captive in that wonderful place.

Gitmo: NOW everyone knows what I'm talking about! I'm sure that in the text books of history the word Gitmo will resound as the reigning champion.(btw.. Gitmo is not in my computers vocabulary... and I aint addin' it)

Terrorist: Our modern day media is NOT ALLOWED TO USE THIS WORD!!!! Wake up people! I dare you! Listen to your world news today and tell me how many times it's used. They are required by penalty of death (or otherwise dismemberment) to use "politically sensitive" words such as Holy Warriors, Jihad, Muslim Extremists (the very term makes me sick to my stomach). They're TERRORISTS, and we should never forget what they have done to our country, and around the world with bombings far out-reaching their beloved homeland. (I wonder why?)

DO THIS!! Google "Terrorist": NOT ONE MAJOR NEWS ARTICLE makes it to the front page. DUDE! There are only 10 pages (10 GOOGLE PAGES) on the word Terrorist! If that doesn't signify political censorship, you need a check-up from the neck up.

Here's the one I saw today..."His removal from the AQI [al-Qaeda Iraq] network will send shockwaves through Baghdad's terrorist bombing networks," a US spokesman told the Associated Press." Before you crucify me for my previous statements, you should know that the article I'm referring to is a BBC News article and not bound by our liberal media policies.

This was a TERRORIST being brought to justice. If you want to read the whole article, it's here.

Notice the subtle implication of an impending media refocusing effort to now call the active TERRORIST network known as "Al-Qaeda" a far less scary monster named "AQI"

I don't listen to Rush (just don't have time).. but I'm sure I know what he would say...

BOHICA: Bend Over Here It Comes Again!

Do not let our modern day liberal media stupify the real meaning of the words that cause us to remember that we are at war with Terror. Not silly euphamisms once known as terrorist organizations.
