pissed off at sparkpeople

Thursday, July 12, 2012

Yeah I went and did the stupid trivia today and even went as far as looking at the slideshow related to the question and based MY ANSWER ON THE STUPID SLIDE SHOW and I WAS TOLD I WAS WRONG - WHAT A CROCK.

    Yeah I know it wasn't a big deal and Iam glad nobody flamed me !! emoticon Its just frustrating. especially when you go to an articcle on this site and they give an answer that confirms what you thought and then you answer that way and its GOTCHA.

    Please report it to them. The team leaders team has pointed out to sparkpeople that there are wrong answers on the site and they are making an effort to correct them.

    Don't sweat the small stuff. I'm sure the benefit you receive from being a Spark member out weighs this incident. emoticon

enduring

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

I don't know if I am getting used to it or am so tired I just don't care any more or maybe I have suffered BRAIN DAMAGE from the heat but it doesn't seem as hot today (although the thermometer said OTHERWISE).

still hot here

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

I wanted to add more but I am too tired to think. I hope there is an end to this - I feel guilty complaining when I KNOW that there are some who are enduring worse than me.

    We finally got some relief. Those hot temps are stifling and dangerous. Ours lasted way too long.

A Christian

Monday, July 09, 2012

( I can't and WON'T take credit for this but I thought it too compelling and too good NOT to pass on)




A Christian

Several years ago, a preacher from out-of-state accepted a call to a church in Houston , Texas . Some weeks after he arrived, he had an occasion to ride the bus from his home to the downtown area. When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given him a quarter too much change.. As he considered what to do, he thought to himself, 'You'd better give the quarter back. It would be wrong to keep it.' Then he thought, 'Oh, forget it, it's only a quarter. Who would worry about this little amount? Anyway, the bus company gets too much fare; they will never miss it. Accept it as a 'gift from God' and keep quiet.'

When his stop came, he paused momentarily at the door, and then he handed the quarter to the driver and said, 'Here, you gave me too much change ..'

The driver, with a smile, replied, 'Aren't you the new preacher in town?'




'Yes' he replied.

'Well, I have been thinking a lot lately about going somewhere to worship. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you too much change. I'll see you at church on Sunday.'

When the preacher stepped off of the bus, he literally grabbed the nearest light pole, held on, and said, 'Oh God, I almost sold your Son for a quarter.'

Our lives are the only Bible some people will ever read. This is a really scary example of how much people watch us as Christians, and will put us to the test! Always be on guard -- and remember -- You carry the name of Christ on your shoulders when you call yourself 'Christian.'

Watch your thoughts ; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
W atch your actions; they become habits..
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Hot out today

Sunday, July 08, 2012

It was hot today but its hotter today and there's not much of a let up until next week. I guess I don't mind too much except its tough to sleep when its hot still at night- that's what I don't care for. I went up on the garage roof to do some work and put my hand on the shingles - what a mistake! I almost burnt my hand (and I have light shingles) I am glad I no longer have black shingles like I used to. I was sure glad to get off of the roof.

    It's been crazy hot here too. I am amazed there is anything still alive in the garden.

Hang in there, gorgeous.

    It's too hot here to do much work outside right now. We have a heat advisory every day.
