Today, the Lexmark online technician and I got my scanner going. First I scanned a photo of the late Larry Joe Newsome, shaped it up a bit and ready to print, after I buy an ink cartridge. Then I scanned the booklet and saved it in my Picasa web albums, so now the whole world can read it. Also it's listed on Favorite Links on the sidebar of my blog. I hope to scan more as time goes on.

Sounds to me like all Americans have a welfare mentality, but some won't admit it.
As unhappy as Americans claim to be about the government's red ink, surveys show voters want more government than they're willing to pay for.

I like this site for a fast scroll & read.

Jack E Josey Jr - Just watched your salute to Buddy Holly. Linda Ronstadt did a great job on that classic. Buddy would be proud. You have created a fantastic library of good music with fresh visuals. I hadn't realized how tall Buddy was until I saw the shot of him with Ed Sullivan.

A company formed by publishers of four weekly Middle Georgia newspapers have cranked back up the presses in The Telegraph basement.

If you're old enough and read between the lines, this article hints at the roots of the former Baptists and today's Baptists. Mercer is true to the Baptist heritage of freedom and autonomy. The new thing is the old thing based in racism.
The American dream did not quite live up to reality for Sam Oni when he arrived in Macon in 1963.

Should you spend your money on a home security system? A look inside a burglar's mind might help you decide.

The "infallible Word of God".
John 1:1 talks about the Word of God, and He is Jesus. The living Savior who is infallible in every way and every day. The Word that we know best.
Still cleaning files, and found this juicy gem from an historical Baptist.
Infallible has two meanings; one is "without error" the other that "it fulfills its intended function." A dull knife can be an infallible knife if you use it to cut butter. You will weaken the statement by putting in that word.

Scriptural support for a fair minimum wage:
1 Timothy 5:18
18 For the scripture saith, thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

What's legal or not? You may be surprised.
