I will most likely not get a Flashback Friday up tonight.  We are getting ready to have a Youth Fundraiser for Summer Camp, a Yard Sale.  The best thing was that I was able to at long last get back to Campbell University Divi...

#alllivesmatter

Events in the world, United States, and North Carolina have me just feeling so powerless.  I have little power to stand up, and if I do I have to be ready to face reprisals because of where I live.  Being a Christian that does not agree with the hate that has been growing in my religion does not compute  in my rural Southern area.  But nooses at Duke University and the NC General Assembly having its own Religious Restoration Freedom Act has just made the world a bit sadder.  The idea that corporations can hold religious beliefs is just crazy and the fact that the State that had Baptist push for the Bill of Rights now being so far from the history of when religous freedom really was threatened scares me.  Religious people came here to be free of businesses discriminating against them, of having government rules infringe upon their beliefs and life.  Now these "institutions are helping to indoctrinate hate and the belief that God is OK with it.  Guess that is why this pic I re-read on my Blog reminded me of why we must speak out when something is wrong.

Government Sanctioned Hate and Discrimination of any people group is WRONG!

Private business ARE indeed people. They're started and run by individuals.
The thing about this Law, whether you believe it singles out one group or not is that it's broad enough that ANY religion or group can employ its merit. I'm not saying you're wrong for not agreeing with it, just that YOU still have the CHOICE to employ the Law or not. And for the people and places that DO, you can show your lack of support by not patroning them.

At long last a "what's Hot on Google+" that is worthy of my stream.  This is so true.
 
This is who the Doctor is. Despite his faces, his abilities, his companions, and his desktop theme, that's who he is. A hero. Who cares about the people of all of space and time. He is a protector of the innocent and defenseless, and a wrathful hand against evil and hatred. He is, at his core, in every incarnation, a good man.

And he is the reason why I still have hope that things can change. That evil can be overcome, that good will win, that desperation will be forgotten, and that hope can always save us. Thank you, Doctor... For helping me believe.

I need one of these.  If I ever have an office (given up on that dream) this would be so awesome.  What would be totally cool would be to have a room only accessible by going through this TARDIS which is converted to the door.

I have been watching a mugging at the ACC Tournament.  I guess NC State should be flattered that Duke just came out and never gave them a chance.  It has been an ugly game.  Few fouls called, especially in favor of my Wolfpack.  It is good they are not giving up, but Duke just has been dominating and not letting up.  I hope the Pack has enough wins to make the NCAA Tournament.

#Makeityourfight #30hourfamine Today around noon Youth under my care and across America will begin fasting to raise money and awareness for World Hunger.  Each group will be of different sizes and have different abilities and places to meet, but all will share a common goal to try and save the lives of children that are starving.  They also will make a difference by providing clean water and educational opportunities to children worldwide.

Help us Make it Your Fight as well.  Click the above Hashtags to find my post on our page or look up 30hourfamine.org

Here is my Youth Group's Team Page.  We are still catching up on this side of Famine Fund Raising, so not all participants are listed, but enough kids are to allow for donations.  Help us feed some hungry kids.  Make it your Fight.  #30hourfamine #Makeityourfight

I am a comic book geek and avid reader.  I love books with women who dish out justice with a sword in my favorite books.  I love TV, but watch less than I use to do.  I have a boring life really.

Occupation
I try to teach and show kids what it means to follow Jesus Christ. I try and provide a haven and place for kids that might just need a place to be accepted. It is not easy in this judgemental world we live in.
Skills
I have the skill of being able to talk about random stuff. I have a skill which works well because I am in a job that has kids involved, most kids like me. Maybe it is because I can still enjoy child-like things or maybe I just try and let them decide if I can be a part of their world. Outside of my job that would not be a good skill to brag about. I wish I had mad monkey ninja skills, but one can dream.

This is a long time place to get a great meal. Sundays there is a pick your meat and two vegetables that has the line formed around the inside of the place. In the Summer this is the place for Shakes and Ice Cream. The majority of meat and vegetable served come from local businesses and dealers. You are likely to see just about anybody you know at Speedy Chef. Oh, they also are very generous to local Schools, Churches, and other groups.

One of my favorite places to eat. You can get alot of food for a reasonable price. Staff is friendly and nice. I love that they have bar-b-que wings. I also like that they do a good job labeling what is on the buffet. Take out is awesome as well. I eat there many time in a month.

I have been a customer of Theo since he had the House of Pizza up the road. Theo's is a popular place in Jonesville and has been for many years. It is similar, with better food, to Olive Garden. Prices are moderate and it has a weekly lunch buffet that most people take advantage of when there. I love the Grilled Chicken Pizza. Just the cheese and chicken on garlic buttered crust. Veal and Chicken Parmesan are excellent. There is a new dish I will probably misspell, Veal spicotti. Love it. There wings are a treat as well. We get them to serve at the Family reunion.
