It's not exactly "brain food" but nothing refreshes a body like cold slices of watermelon!
Originating in Africa, watermelons were first cultivated in Egypt where testaments to their legacy were recorded in hieroglyphics painted on building walls. The fruit was held is such regard that it was placed in the tombs of many Egyptian kings. It is not surprising that when Johnny Appleseed met Johnny Watermelonseed they became bitter enemies, and would have fought unto death had not little Johnny Pumpkinseed stopped them.
This short video is just a small portion of what is happening RIGHT NOW as I am typing. Thank God, that my wife and I were home. I looked out my 10th story apartment and saw the sandstorm coming just like what you see here. The roaring wind is shaking the windows and doors and sand is getting in the rooms. I can't see the building across the street anymore. It's there...just can't see it. There is a fine, moon-dust like sand that can blow in from any small opening or between the sliding doors or windows. You can smell and taste it. I can rake my finger on any surface in the house now and there is this "sand dust". It's a little hazy as I view my computer monitor. I'm sure our cars will be covered in sand by tomorrow. The storm has been going on now for hours and I don't know when it will let up. I have never seen anything like this. That's the Kuwait update. Please remember my wife in prayer. She has asthma and this is a monster sand storm.
Eddie...About that comment counter thingy dingy, it doesn't work. I haven't commented in a while and I notice I have fallen from 95 to 75...Maybe my comments are so bad they carry a negative value? That is a real possibility...
Carry on, and here is my check for $7,000.
(Okay - I added that last part -- Eddie)
Until I can find a better widgety do-dad, I am stuck with this one. It is based on ONLY the last 500 comments. At the present, I have OVER 6,000 comments on my Calvinistic Cartoons blog, so each new comment from anyone causes changes in the individual totals. If the widget were based on my comment TOTAL it would be a lot better for everyone involved...but, alack and alas my friend, I haven't found one that does that. Just keep in mind that these are the comments poll of the last 500. If anyone knows of a better McWidget, let me know. I thank thee all, brethren and sistern, I thank thee all.
Loraine Boettner was born on March 7, 1901 and went to be with his Lord and Savior on January 3, 1990. This is a scan or the letter I have taped in my Reformed Doctrine of Predestination hardcover 1980 edition. This serves as a constant reminder of his kindness and his servant attitude, as he was still ministering to students whenever and wherever he could. This is one book I will never be without.
