Chimpanzee Riding on a Segway
Where do people come up with trained Chimpanzees?

Borrowed this one from Mark Oestreicher. I laughed! I cried! I almost threw a party! And, like ysmarko, I found myself singing the tune from this video.
Eight O' Clock Colombian Coffee Wins Consumer Reports Taste Test

According to Consumer Reports, "Folgers, Maxwell House, and Starbucks are America's best-selling ground coffees. But all three were iced by Eight O'Clock Colombian coffee in our taste tests. As for Starbucks, it didn't even place among the top regular coffees and trailed among decafs."

CR stated, "Our tests of 19 coffees also show that some of the best cost the least. At about $6 per pound, Eight O'Clock costs less than half the price of Gloria Jean's, Peet's, and other more expensive brands."

Consumer Reports has perked my curiosity! I have never tried Eight O'Clock Coffee. I don't know that I have ever thought of purchasing a pound. Probably because I drink coffee throughout the day. I'll see how Eight O'Clock tastes at Five O' Clock and let you know!

Sharing Jesus With Your Friend

Mark Hall-Casting Crowns
On-Line Missions Trip Challenge

One of the things I think is wrong with the church is that we have gotten passionate about so many things EXCEPT for the one thing that Jesus left us on this planet to do…REACH PEOPLE with the LIFE CHANGING MESSAGE of Jesus Christ. (Perry Nobel)

Just wanted to encourage all my students and friends as we continue to passionately share the Gospel of Christ through our Social Networks. Tell your story! Tell us all your story. This is so Revolutionary that we have the opportunity to IMPACT our entire nation and world with so many participating in the On-Line Missions Trip across the USA.

Keep Sharing!!!

Go!!! You are Commanded!

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." --Matthew 28:19-20

The problem for most of us Christians is not knowledge but obedience. It is not that we do not know what we need to do or how to do it. What we lack is the intention to do it. We have not made up our minds that the commands of Jesus will come before the commands of the world. When we genuinely deny ourselves and follow Him, when we offer our lives as living sacrifices, our minds and hearts will be transformed. As disciples of Jesus, our first priority will be to make other disciples for Him.

Autism Sunday--February 8

Cathedrals, churches and religious organizations around the world will observe Autism Sunday, an international day of prayer for those with autism and Asperger̢۪s Syndrome, on February 8. Parents, caregivers and people with autism have been asked to inform their church groups around the world and request them to observe Autism Sunday.

Autism Sunday was launched in 2002 by parents and caregivers Ivan and Charika Corea in the United Kingdom, who have a son with autism. A service for autism was held at St. Paul's Cathedral in London in 2002 to mark the launch of Autism Sunday.

Many autism advocates use Autism Sunday to raise awareness of the serious education and health issues associated with autism. World leaders have been urged to share their "vision for autism" on Autism Sunday and spell out their plans to help parents, caregivers, children and adults with autism and Asperger's Syndrome.

Kurt Warner's Bold Witness

Kurt Warner's bold witness for his faith comes as no surprise to those who have watched the NFL quarterback play for more than a decade. That's what two Super Bowls -– one as MVP in a win -– and a book or two detailing your faith will do.

The Arizona Cardinals signal-caller regrets not being able to share what is most important to him with more people, particularly when members of the media censor or minimize his faith in exploring his personality and his career.

That's why he tries to do TV interviews with a Bible at his side and to mention God in live interviews since it can't be edited out.

But he knows the name of Jesus can make non-Christians uncomfortable with the peace that He gives in the violent and up-and-down world of professional football.

Warner says, “Everything I do, everywhere I go, I’m trying to live up to or represent Jesus,” Warner said. “Having the faith I have is first and foremost in my life.”
