Join The Eden Reforestation Project – Plant Trees!


Cheryl and I have supported Eden Reforestation Projects for many years. I can’t remember exactly how long now, but it’s getting close to 10 years I believe. Planting trees is one of the BEST ways to impact a local environment, as well as the people (and animals) who live there. There’s lots of reading materials,…

Why We Went Back To Netflix


We signed up for Netflix again – despite the fact that 10 years ago we left and I swore we’d never be back. I changed my mind due to the fact that we were AT&T UVerse subscribers, but there was absolute CRUD on TV, with way too many commercials, and zero movies we wanted to…

Problems Facing The Church
