Well . . . it's been awhile since I wrote anything. I don't know whether it's because I'm lazy or whether at the present moment I'm just bored.
So anyway, I got rid of my pesky RX3715 PDA and got a new HP hx2755 (I think that's the model). I really dig it. It's crafted well and it's serving it's purpose. I sort of wish that Stardock did something for customization on Pocket PC's (Pocketblinds is so outdated it doesn't even run on WM2003 systems), but I have no complaints. I just rely on w...

Well, I still love my new computer. I'm enjoying it immensely. The 17" screen works wonderful for the 2 latest computer games I've picked up - Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth, and Star Wars: Battlefront. They run smooth and are thoroughly awesome games, IMO. Some might disagree
The PDA . . . hmmm. NOw I'm not enjoying it as much. It's not near as fast as I thought it would be and the pleasure of NEVO on it isn't compensating enough for my frustration over the speed and lack...

Well, I guess it has been a nice Christmas for me. I ended up getting a new laptop and PDA, which has been nice. I purchased a new Dell Inspiron 9200 at the beginning of November. After about pulling my hair out for a month in anticipation, impatience, nervous gitters, and the like, I finally received it the second week of December. I LOVE IT. I suped it up a bit so it runs pretty smooth. For a laptop it's great. It's got a gig of RAM, a Pentium M 2.0 ghz chip, and a 128 video card . . ....

Well, I'm a Canadian citizen that is priviledged to be able to live in the US. I currently live in Orlando, where I am an Assistant Pastor at a church here in town. As of yet, I'm not an American citizen but plan on becoming one.I was intrigued by the response of the WC poll of who we were voting for. I wasn't necessarily shocked by the "American" response being virtually a tie between Bush and Kerry. However, I was quite alarmed by the "Non-American" response being so pro-Kerry. I don't ha...

Well . . . I'm sitting here in Orlando listening to the rain and wind beat against my house. Enough with the hurricanes! Thank goodness I have power. I lost it for about 9 hours and then it came back . . . how and why, I might never know. But I've got power and to me, that's all that matters. I live in the Northwest side of the city and, thank God, we didn't really get hit with the brunt of the storm. We have had our share of frustrations (between power outs, wind, rain, broken lights, et...

Yesterday I accompanied my mother-in-law to the doctor . . . somewhat/maybe-not/supposed-to-be routine check-up. One of the doctor's main concerns was that my mother-in-law is like a speedy gonzales. She doesn't stop to smell the roses . . . OR to chew her food properly, which causes indigestion (among other things).
Tonight I went to wal-mart and when I was done shopping I started searching the different check-out lines for the shortest one. If you're anything like me, I can't stand a lon...

I'm a Pastor at an Independent, Charismatic Church in Orlando, Florida. I grew up in a Pastor's home and have been a committed Christian all of my life. Unfortuantely, I see a church (and world) full of people that are not able to enjoy life to the fullest. People are bogged down with everything from mental problems, to physical sicknesses, financial strain, family hurt and heartache, job frustrations . . . and on and on the list goes. I am convinced that if we allowed Jesus to play a bigger...
