  • Have you ever noticed elevator etiquette?  When you get on you just punch your button and stand mutely staring at the door.  If there are two of you, you stand as far away from each other as possible.  When there are three or four people, we go to our own corner and stand there in silence.  Generally not a word is spoken except for “excuse me” or maybe a floor number.

  • This morning I finished reading through the Bible and near the end God warned us not to add to or take away from the Word of God. This means exactly what the Word of God says.

    Country Ham Breakfast

  • Daniel Boone was Kentucky’s most famous frontiersman, but a historian says he did not get proper credit for being an accomplished land surveyor, and was the unfortunate victim of a misnomer that made him appear a bumbling backwoodsman.

    Author-historian Neal Hammon of Shelby County says Boone was the leader of the westward movement and his land surveys show he knew what he was doing. Hammon has studied Boone’s surveys and doesn’t buy the often-heard allegation that the explorer lost his own land claims because of inattention or ineptness.

    He also holds an accredited buyer representative designation.

  • The amazing thing about discussing the Bible with a lot of Christian people and bringing up scripture in the Old Testament and if it is something they don’t want to abide by they will say yes that is in the Old Testament. When I wrote about drinking alcohol I heard this a lot.

    Isaiah 5:11-14 – Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them!
