New website about Jesus Christ

The LDS church (of which I am a member) has recently put out a new website focusing on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. I commend the establishment and promotion of this new venture. All too often the focus of church becomes about administrative matters or famous Mormons (like Mitt Romney) or crazy people who call themselves Mormons but are not (Texas-cult polygamist pedophiles) and less on the true nature of the religion which is fundamentally-based on faith in Jesus Christ.

Please visit at your leisure and enjoy the reading. God bless.

my wife Nicole has tagged me...

to complete this tag you must:
1. pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages)
2. turn to page 123
3. find the 5th sentence
4. post the 5th sentence on your blog
5. tag 5 people


Before I begin, I must say that like my wife I read multiple books at the same time, so I will also be listing a few from my current reading selection.

“Anyone want to talk about how they feel about things since this Daredevil has declared himself this so-called Kingpin of Hell’s Kitchen?"

from "Daredevil" Volume 5 by Brian Michael Bendis from Marvel Comics.

"Everything was taken out of all the closets, and the shelves were line with fresh clean newspaper."

from "The Fortunate Pilgrim" by Mario Puzo (most famously known for penning The Godfather story).

"Lavoisier's idea had to be modified, however, when the English chemist Sir Humphrey Davey (1778-1829) showed in 1810 that muriatic acid (now called hydrochloric acid) contains only hydrogen and chlorine but no oxygen."

from "Chemistry-Second Edition" by John McMurry and Robert C. Fay both from Cornell University.

"But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all."

from New Testament, Luke 17:29.

Internet Television...I love technology.

For those of you who do not already know, a little over a year ago my wife and I decided that we had wasted enough time staring aimlessly into our television. I had a 57" Hitachi High Definition widescreen television and figured it would be a tragedy of Biblical proportions to let such awesomeness go to waste. We had to upgrade to the local cable Hi-Def package and included TIVO in the deal. No more would I be forced to watch whatever was currently on at the time. TIVO had been born to simplify my life and shorten my time spent watching brain-numbing television.

My television ban lasted a few months until someone mentioned that the major networks were starting to put old episodes online for free. Not for the $1.99 download from iTunes...oh no., how could I resist. I come before you now to expound my knowledge on the subject. My wife and I recently bought a Mac (and we love it!) and it serves as our entertainment center. We watch movies, we watch television shows, we surf the internet, and we post blogs that no one reads...

My analytical male brain now refuses to let me purchase a television and subscribe to cable when I get an all-in-one package from my Mac and internet subscription. Why pay an additional $40-50 per month, when the major network shows are nearly all online for FREE anyways? Granted, the basic cable channels have yet to follow the trend but trust me...they will follow suit.

Currently the internet offers over 100 televisions series for fans to watch via streaming or download options. For those who would like to test the waters, I will list below the wonderful sites:

And for those who think that is too many sites, has compiled them all into one listing for you:

Enjoy the madness!
