  1. It's good to hear he left this world better than when he found it. We should all strive to be like him. God bless you and yours Walt.
  2. We had one in our office so we wouldn't have to go downstairs for ice. It worked OK but was impossible to thoroughly clean. I do not recommend.
  3. I doubt he made it...no piano hinge.
  4. 31...never heard of Hoppin' John
  5. TL,DR at the bottom That is in Luke 22:36 "But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one" This event is found in all four Gospels: Matthew 26:51&52 Christ says to Peter in verse 52 "Put up again thy sword into his place; for all they that take up the sword shall perish with the sword" Mark 14:48 but Mark does not record Christ's response. Luke 22:50&51 Christ's response in 51 is "Suffer ye thus far" John 18:10&11Christ's response to Peter here is "Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?" What I understand from Luke 22:36 is: Christ intends for His people to be able to defend themselves. What I understand from Matthew 26:52 is: Christ does not intend for His people to instigate violence. He tells Peter to put the sword away, not to give it to another or dispose of it. If Malchus had of grabbed Peter first, I doubt Christ would have had a problem with what Peter did. What I understand From Luke 22:51 is: Suffer in this context means to endure or allow. "Endure ye thus far", or "Allow ye thus far" Christ means for Peter to allow this (His arrest) to happen and not interfere. John 18:11 echos both Matthew and Luke "Put you sword away" and His rebuke to Peter is a question: "Peter are you trying to prevent Me from doing what God sent me to do?" TL,DR: Jesus wants us to defend ourselves Jesus does not want us to instigate violence Jesus does not want us to hinder God's plan This was a part of the argument we used to defend our churches policy of allowing anyone that has a HCP to carry on church property. What that other church is doing is shameful and un-scriptural.
  6. OK the top comment on that article is messed up.
  7. Her side of the family are all wonderful people. I never had a chance to meet her dad as he died a year before we met; hopefully I will meet him on the other side. The only one on my side (still living) that I care about is my dad, it sucks that his place can't let visitors in.
  8. Around here it's this: I have thus far resisted.

    Damn...she blossomed!
  10. Leave nothing unsaid. Praying for the Powell family.
  11. 6 and 10 were the channels Dad watched, but all the good stuff like Buck Rogers or Battlestar Galactica, was on 43. God help you if Dad caught you zipping it from 6 to 43 too fast.
  12. Mom was always a huge Elvis fan, when we first moved to Tennessee (I was 12) we went to Graceland. In one of the downstairs rooms was a console TV (there were TVs in every room IIRC), but not just any console TV, the exact same one as in our living room at home with the same color marble top. Mom was jazzed about that until it died a few years later. It then was a stand for other TVs for the next decade or so.

    I will pronounce it "Uaco Id" with a comically strong Mexican accent from now on.
