Just another Manic Monday

...and more stuff to tell you...

--Did you know the difference between weight loss and weight gain can be as little as 100 calories a day? (Hat tip to The Amazing Shrinking Mom.)

--You've probably already heard the results of the Values Voter Poll. Author Athol Dickson doesn't think Mike Huckabee is unelectable, and he has some suggestions for conservative Christians on his blog. Among them: Dickson encourages you to go to Huckabee's website and read his positions on the issues.

(Hat tip to Angela Hunt.)

--Joe Carter at the Evangelical Outpost also has some reflections on the Values Voter Summit. Among them, this comment:

The most significant insight I gained from The Washington Briefing was not about the candidates but about the bloggers: Right-leaning bloggers are out of touch with a large portion--if not the majority--of conservatives in America.

--Radio Disney banned the words "chosen by God" from radio ads promoting the animated movie, "The Ten Commandments."

--Speaking of "The Ten Commandments"--have you seen it? Let me know what you thought. The Chicago Tribune actually gives it a positive review.

Focus on the Family's Plugged-In Online gave it a generally good review. although reviewer Paul Assay admits:

The computer animation looks primitive. The dialogue sounds simplistic. The characters are rendered in 3-D, but the characterizations are flat and two-dimensional...

Still, says Assay:

"..the heart's all here. The Ten Commandments, which is the first of a planned 12 movies in Promenade Pictures' 'Epic Stories of the Bible' series, conveys God's might and love with reverence and sincerity. And it leaves the soul—and the point—of the story intact. In stark contrast to many of the films playing in cavernous screening rooms—and later, living rooms—nearby, this is a movie designed to lead children to God, not away from Him."

Other reviewers aren't as kind, with "unimpressive" actually being one of the nice things said about the movie.

--Rodney Olsen of The Journey is giving away a Creation Answers book.
