“The finest men in all the world are not to be found in the warm, genial climates, where the earth has only to be tickled with a hoe, and it laughs with plenty; but the strongest and the most enterprising spirits have been found at the back of the north wind, where there are frosts and ice, and long, dreary winters, and men have a hard struggle for a livelihood. They become really men under that stern training. Now, if there were no thorns and thistles, no struggles and no trials, should we have any brave Christians? Should we have any great and noble souls at all? When did the Church yield her best men for her Lord’s service? It was in the persecuting times, when they had to swim through seas of blood to hold fast the truth of Christ. These are silken days, and we have wretched specimens of Christians everywhere; but if the times of persecution were to come once more, with the rough winds blowing, and the whole sea of the world tossed in tempest, we should then find brave sailors who would put the ship’s head to the wind, and ride safely over the stormy billows in the name of the Eternal God.” Spurgeon, C. H.

From the Thorns and Thistles Sermon, Vol 39.

Internet Telephone 911 Problems

Companies offfer telephone through the Internet but they don’t have reliable 911 service.

The FCC gave a deadline for providing reliable 911 access through the Internet Phone Service, however, many companies did not make the deadline. The Internet Telephones allow you to make calls through your internet connection, however, if you need 911 service, the 911 dispatcher needs to know the location of your call. This is a Federal requirement. FCC declared that if they cannot get reliable 911 service to their customers, they will have to disconnect existing customers and deny new customers.

Man Bags

These days, a man might have a cell phone, wallet, digital camera, sun glasses, PDA, IPod. There are bags out there that can be used by men to conveniently carry all these items. You can call them ?man bags?, men?s carry all, travel bags, or something else.
Unfortunately, we live in a society that has very strict stereotypes of what a man is. A man may want to use one of these, but feel that he will get criticizm from other people. What do you think? I created a poll for you all to vote. You have to be registered and logged in to vote. So if you haven’t registered, please do so and then cast your vote at the Man Bag Poll
