Gentlemen, it's that time of the year when you need to yet again prove your undying loyalty to your beloved. If you have completely forgotten that tomorrow is "prove-you-love-me-day," God is kind this year. He let Valentine fall on a Saturday so before you get home tonight, be sure to pick up that special super-expensive beyond-your-budget one-of-a-kind token of your affection.

   Why oh why do we fall for this marketing ploy? If you really think about it, it's nothing but an outright blackmail! If you don't give her anything she will think you don't love her. Even if you explain the silliness and the mischievous intentions of marketers to separate you from your hard earned moolah ... even if your sweetheart is enlightened and says you need not follow the crowd, your goose is cooked! You know very well that she will be expecting something. And the more you discuss this topic, the bigger and more expensive the gift will have to be.

    Ladies, in behalf of my fellow brother romantics, please be kind. Lower your expectations. That way the four course dinner at the fancy French restaurant you've been dreaming of will still be palatable when you are actually munching on that dry hamburger he will treat you to at the neighborhood McDonalds.

   Even as I type this TGIF email, I can imagine the stores and restaurants salivating for you, their reluctant customer. How unfair that these cruel, heartless conglomerates are taking advantage of the romantics of the world.

Oh Romeo, Romeo ...
Wherefore art thou Romeo?

I"m here Juliet! --- lining up in this godforsaken establishment with my maxed-out credit card, hoping to purchase the moon and the stars!

   Are the women really worth it?
I guess they are. Move over Romeo, I'm cutting in line!

Wisdom from Nancy of Pasadena, CA
Words of Wisdom

Never ignore a person who loves you, cares for you, and misses you because one day, you might wake up and realize you lost the moon while counting the stars.

None of his classmates liked him cause of his stupidity, especially his teacher, who was always yelling at him, "You're driving me insane, Tyrone!"

One day Tyrone 's mom came to school to check on how he was doing. The teacher told his mom honestly, that her son was simply a disaster, getting very low marks, and never had she seen such a dumb boy in her entire teaching career.

The mom was shocked at the feedback and withdrew her son from school and moved out of Detroit, relocating to Cleveland.

25 years later, the teacher was diagnosed with an incurable cardio disease. All the doctors strongly advised her to have heart surgery, which only one surgeon could perform at the Cleveland Clinic.

Left with no other options, the teacher decided to have the operation, which was successful. When she opened her eyes after the surgery she saw a handsome doctor smiling down at her.

She wanted to thank him, but could not talk. Her face started to turn blue, she raised her hand, trying to tell him something but eventually died.

The doctor was shocked and was trying to work out what went wrong, when he turned around he saw our friend Tyrone, working as a janitor in the clinic, who had unplugged the oxygen equipment in order to connect his vacuum cleaner!

Don't tell me you thought the story was about how Tyrone became a heart-surgeon.

No need to explain what this video is about. I think I would have thrown up.

The stereotypes sez that white men can't jump and that they don't have a beat. This little boy shows us that at least one of the stereotypes ain't true.

World's lhighest swing

Nevis Arc in Queenstown, New Zealand offers a ride that's a tamer version of bungee jumping. I'd like to try this.

Harvesting Bananas

I never realized how efficient the Dole Company made harvesting America's favorite fruit. I'll have a better respect for the humble banana the next time I bite into it. To think that it would have passed through so many stages before it reached me. Fascinating!

God in Ancient China

God in Ancient China

Fascinating sermon. Kinda long but very informative. Been wondering what was happening in Asia when Biblical events were taking place. Now I have a better picture. I wonder if anyone can verify his claims. If you write Chinese, please let me know if this is accurate.

Honda creative ad

I shared the first version of this video years ago. This one seems to have some new segments about the evolution of the Honda Motor Company. What a proud tradition.


Hi Raoul,

Regarding the video "God in Ancient China" I sent that video to my son's father-in-law (Mr Wu is Chinese and is currently working and ministering in Taiwan). Mr Wu states that he believes what the pastor in the video says is true. This pastor (in the video) is from Singapore and is well known in Taiwan , also, according to Mr. Wu. I can only tell you what Mr. Wu said, so I myself cannot affirm or deny the message. However, I did hear and see a similar video several years ago.

Hope this helps


Yes it is good to know that God is working there. And it seems as if God sent the news there long before America was discovered. People are the ones who stifle God's Word here as well as there---
