    Weak Trees (musing on the future of Christianity)

    In October, 2019, a storm ripped through west and middle Tennessee and caused a lot of damage, mostly by knocking over a LOT of trees. The rain wasn't all that bad, but the wind was stronger than anything I had ever seen before. ("Strong" in this case is relative - it was amazing for this region...

    SHOPPING SPREE!!!

    Them tax returns be rolling in, y'all! How are you spending yours? Quote I saw online: "It's tax return season, and I know y'all been missing the beach, but you're also missing a tooth and all the tread on your tires, so maybe this year make better decisions." It has become VERY busy at my...

    Need Christian Celtic music

    I'm looking for any recommendations y'all have. Anything Irish or Scottish, that is Christian and modern. (Yes there IS such a thing as modern Irish and Scottish music...) I have found Ric Blair's "Break The Walls" and Mark Robin's "Live from Belfast" but that's ALL I can find. Even Ric...

    Bumping Approved Threads

    Moderating new threads... very good thing. Thank you SO much for this! Problem is, you can't be at the computer 24/7. Sometimes by the time you approve a new thread it is older than more than half a page of threads with new replies, and it appears waaaaaaaay down the list. I keep missing a lot...

    Modern Christian Terms

    Coughering: When somebody in a pew in front of you coughed right as the offering pan was passed. "Uh... I'll just give a coughering this time. I'll add what I was going to give to next week's offering. And hey, y'all might wanna wear gloves when you count that." Rock Of Ages: The pebble you...

    Family Motto

    If your family had a motto, what would it be? Our family motto would be, "Every occasion deserves an appropriate family dinner." Seriously, we have a family dinner for any excuse... er, for any reason. (Don't get me wrong, I ain't complaining. I love it!) Covid sure has cramped our style...

    Body or Mind?

    This is kind of a morbid topic, but it's a question I wound up giving a lot of thought: When you get old, which would you rather lose first? Your sound body or your sound mind? We all lose them eventually when we die, and (if we avoid accidents, fatal illnesses and the like and actually make it...

    THIS IS NOT A DATING SITE!!! (!!!!!)

    But if it was a dating site, what would your profile say? Would it be serious? "Hi, I'm a guy looking for a girl. I'm not too picky... can't afford to be at my age." Would it be farcical? "I'm just a normal guy from Antria, a planet in the Xyphos Nebula, iridescent purple like all the other...

    Try-Before-You-Buy Marriage Sampler

    NO this thread does not have anything to do with premarital sex. :eek::rolleyes: Today while I was on the job my hands had a lot to do but my brain was idling. I started thinking about how technology might give an engaged couple a taste of living together before they actually get married and...

    Overreaction

    Am I the only one who does this? Often when I talk to somebody I will deliberately emphasize emotional displays to make sure the person I'm talking to catches them. If the person asked me a question I will find myself consciously trying to look like I'm thinking about it, so he will know I'm...

    Covid Communication

    Just so y'all know, on any phone that is running Android 8 or later, you can set Skype to automatically answer video calls. This is important in 2020, because if a loved one cannot have visitors for covid reasons, you can ask a nurse to set a smartphone in the corner of the room so y'all can...

    PATIENCE! Right now! Please?

    Maybe some of you ladies in this forum can help me with a question. Why do some women not have a concept of "later" when asking somebody to do something? For some women it is always either "now" or "never." GIRL: "Honey could you take out the trash?" GUY: "Yeah, in a minute. Just gotta get to...
