My son Justin, daughter Elizabeth and nephew Nathan--vacationing in Port Aransas, Texas--decide to do a happy/sad contrast
You say "tomato"..."John Adams"..."Planet Earth"...Geeky pranks...and more...
Well, the weekend AND Monday went by with no post from me! I have a plethora of links for you to check out though, should you be so inclined...
--Can we eat tomatoes yet? Which ones are safe and which aren't? Get the latest info at fda.gov.
--I haven't seen the John Adams HBO series yet, but I want to even more now that I've read B.J. Hoff's review.
--These are pretty funny: The Top 10 Harmless Geek Pranks (hat tip to Evangelical Outpost.)
--From Tim Challies: 9 Things I Learned About God from "Planet Earth."
While the producers of the series are not Christians (or do not claim to be Christians) and while the films were not meant to draw attention to God, as I watched them I was continually drawn to marvel in the greatness of the Lord. As the films provided a tour of so many beautiful locations and as they gave close-up shots of such incredible creatures, I saw the hand of a Creator. I saw it everywhere.--Tim Challies
(Makes me want to see it.)
--Olympics on the Go: You will be able to watch the Olympics on your laptop via Windows Vista Media Center.
--For those of us who take the Bible literally, this Pew report on religion in American life includes some troubling findings.
--You know the Eckhart Tolle book, A New Earth, the one that Oprah is vigorously promoting? Well, Richard Abanes has written a Christian response to it: A New Earth, An Old Deception.
--Are you sick of hearing the F-Word? Well, how about re-inventing it? More magazine is sponsoring a contest that challenges you to describe yourself with an F word (fit, funny, fabulous?) Oh, that other F-word? Not allowed.
