S What if Martin Luther was alive today....

On Friday, Oct. 31, many Christians celebrate the anniversary of the Reformation. It was on All Hallows' Eve, the eve of All Saints' Day, in the year 1517, when a German monk and university professor named Martin Luther nailed 95 theses for debate on the door (the bulletin board of the day) of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. These statements for debate, which challenged the sale of indulgences and the authority of the Roman papacy to establish doctrine and practice contrary to the Holy Scriptures, sparked the Lutheran Reformation and reformation movements in other European lands ... My question, however, is this: What would happen if Martin Luther were alive today? Continue Reading »

S Change is good for the world, just not for my world

It is a pleasure to go out the back door and face a day of mid-70's weather and the grass is still green and growing. A feller that has that is a man with much. I know we have days ahead that will not be as nice, or as warm, or as easy to stand, but today was a good one! Continue Reading »

S Ten-four, I'm 10-8 on the radio again

I'm not sure what's gotten into me lately or why I've regressed, but I recently decided to hook up an old citizen's band radio or two which had gone silent a good number of years ago. They were dusty and dirty and packed away in a box or on a shelf but, to my surprise, they still worked. Continue Reading »

S October is proving to be busy, busy month

We usually think of October as a mellow month. Mother Nature is slowing down (except perhaps for the squirrels busily burying nuts) and the earth is preparing for cooler days. Most of the crops are harvested and our chores in the yard and garden will soon be done. Continue Reading »

S A crabby old man or cranky old woman is one thing we can do without

Shoot, I forgot to go to the meeting for the explanation of the reason we need to enforce all the new laws of our county! Our basic laws have been declared obsolete and old, not worthy of being on the books and maybe even illegal. I think spitting on the sidewalk should still require at least a fine. Continue Reading »

S Got your flu shot? How else can you protect against the flu?

As we move into October, flu (influenza) shots come to mind. No one wants to get the flu. But with some extra hand-washing and a flu shot, you can improve your chances of avoiding the flu or a cold this season. Continue Reading »
