Weekend Assignment #147, birthday, blogthings, and stuff

From our blogfather, John Scalzi:

I was wandering around the Web and found a Warning Sign Generator, and I thought it could make a fun Weekend Assignment:

Weekend Assignment #147: Make a Warning Sign For Everyday Life.
Because life needs warning signs sometimes.

For all my students, future and former, that might stumble upon this journal - beware:

Extra credit: Ever ignored a warning sign you should have paid attention to?

Oh yes. That big red one at the middle of a four lane entersection. T-boned. Winshields + foreheads - seatbelts = serious hospital time. Not fun!

And this one comes from Bloglines:

You Are 67% Addicted to the Internet
In your opinion, life without the internet is hardly worth living.
Could be, but you probably need a bit more fresh air and sunshine to think clearly.

Bible Verse of the Day: Acts 28:28: Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.

The implied message is that everyone not a Jew will hear the word of God. One slight propblem there, though, in that people either have to be listening, or choose to listen, and many don't do either. Yes, many millions of gentiles have heard the call of salvation, but not all have. The word requires the will of the hearer to choose to listen, choose to hear, and then choose to follow.

Those somehwere in the middle might be worse than those that never hear, or choose not to listen....after all, they do not believe, whereas those in the middle claim belief, but fail to follow. That might vex me a bit more if I were God.

Oh, more photos and fun birthday stuff coming tomorrow.
