"Hmmm...without a dog in the fight, I took the Rams and the wife took the Pats for $1. Guess I joined everyone else in expecting some offense and actually thought the Rams had a chance of winning it late in the game. Wife got nickles and dimes."

Israel's History is a lesson for all Nations: Have we abandoned God?

A commentary worth reading by Ben Stein:

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

Christmas 2012 - with love and kindness

A Christmas Story for the Children of the World

It was about one in the morning on Christmas Day when little Billy made his way from his bedroom, where he was suppose to be sleeping, to the living room where a Christmas Tree was standing with all his presents below it.

The time, effort and energy that goes into designing and maintaining this site is a credit to all those involved. It is educational, informative and entertaining as we all reveal…
