Fun in the Sun

Posted 03-02-2015 at 10:49 AM by onebuck


I've been away from LQ for a while!
Just got back from a beautiful vacation in Florida for the last five weeks to rejuvenate and recover from the cold here in the mid-west.

We missed the storms and got home safely to a cold and snow covered trip. Road crews cleared a great path for us and mother nature accommodated us.

John 8:12

Posted 02-28-2015 at 06:55 PM by ardvark71

"Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, "I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life." John 8:12 NLT

But why is Jesus the light and what is darkness? Wasn't he some great teacher who taught that everyone should live in peace and harmony with one another? Yes...but there's a LOT more. There...

(Not) Microsoft calling...

It's been a while since I got one of these calls. Somebody with a strong Indian accent, using an English name (Andrew, this time), and claiming to work for Microsoft.
After introductions, this is the conversation:
Andrew: we have reports that your computer has been downloading malicious software.
Me: Oh? That sounds bad.
Andrew: Don't worry, we can fix it.
Me: I hope so.
Then asks if I'm at my computer & is it on. And which browser I use.
