“What If” the Spies Lied to Rahab

Matt Stonie: Could You Compete with Him on This Ramen Challenge?
Quick, easy, and cheap. No, I am not describing myself, nor anyone else I know. I am talking about the ramen noodle. Forty-five years ago, Nissin introduced Top Ramen Oodles of Noodles to the American market. In 1971, they introduced their
Are You Feeling Old Yet?
The saying has it that 'you know you're getting old when #policemen look younger'. In my life it's not the policemen who look younger every day, it's the politicians. The former head of the Labour Party, Ed Miliband, is my birthday twin. Tim Farron, rec
Where Ma Gurls AT?
Natural American. Born and raised in the USA. Don't really keep up with the political scene because if it's something really big that's about to happen, the citizens will rise up! Never concerned about who ends up in the Oval Office as long as it's not a
Why is a Strong Woman a Bitch?
Day 4 of the song challenge asks for a song that describes my life, but honestly I can't say I've ever encountered one that does. And I guess that's not too surprising. I was one of those kids who was never “seen” by the teacher on Romper Room

Of omens and superstitions
Today as I was coming home after dropping my children at school, a black #cat crossed the road in front of my car. Some people consider that to be a bad #omen. Luckily for me, I am not #superstitious and don’t believe in such things. In fact, I rem
Wear Your Personality
So at work, we usually come in with our suit and tie. Other times I rock a mean corporate 'barong tagalog' (that's the acknowledged traditional costume for Filipinos). Of course, on weekends, I tend to dress down and come in with a shirt, sneakers, and den
What a mauling by Kiwi players
The #New-Zealand cricket team simply flattened the English team today in the #World-Cup-2015, Group A match. Even as a neutral observer, I truly felt sorry for the English team as the Kiwi players were almost brutal in their batting, bowling and fielding

Puddin' Has Survived a Parvovirus Infection; Fully Recovered Category Challenge â€“ Animals
Remember Puddin'? Well, she became near-death kind of sick from parvovirus. She spent about a week or so in the puppy hospital totaling nearly $900 in billing. We're lucky they are letting my sister pay it out. There's just no such thing as a free puppy. Y
Deliver Me From Used Car Salesmen
It was time to purchase a new-to-me car that would be a used car, or pre-owned vehicle, as the lingo goes these days. I did my homework, checked out the used car inventory of several dealerships, read the CarFax on the autos in which I had an interest an
How far can cults go - UK Satanic Sex Cult
How far can cults go - UK Satanic Sex Cult Cults have no meaning. And yet they exist in this world mostly started by people with warped minds but strangely they get followers who get brain washed into believing whatever the leader believes in. Mos
Women Aging Gracefully
The anti-aging business is big. Women spend hundreds of dollars yearly on products that promise to retain the fountain of youth. The older I get the less concerned I am about my wrinkles. With age comes wisdom in some cases. When I was in my 30s I fell for
