In Rockfall this morning Islam and Christianity met…and agreed

True story from my brother who lives in New England: I was talking to a Muslim man behind the counter at the Rockfall store and I told him I had to go shopping for groceries because when I have money I buy food for poor people, that Jesus tells me to do that, and we … Continue reading

Dang it, I got mutagen on my genes!

I was just skimming various newspapers from around the world and came upon a story in The Guardian “Study shows humans are evolving faster than previously thought”. Really?

Use this simple CACA test for new ideas

I don’t know about you, but I have acted on my share of bad ideas. Usually, I didn’t see what a bad idea it was until after I tried it. “Hey, let’s catch those horses and ride them.””Whose horses are they?” “I don’t know.” “That sounds like a good idea!” So we did catch them … Continue reading

Disney: One Face Fits All…Women

I know lots of people love Disney. Disney movies! They were always considered so wholesome and American. Do you remember your first Disney movie? The first Disney movie I ever saw was Snow White. Would you believe people used to go the movies and watch the movie from their cars? With the kids in their … Continue reading
