What Movies & Email-Forwards Have In Common

What do movies & email-forwards have in common?

I don't pay a lot of attention to either.


I get a ton of forwarded-email from all sorts of well-meaning folks. Even my mom.

I pay 'virtually' no attention to them. [pun slightly intended]

And sorry, Mom. But they usually turn out to be hoaxes, do they not?

Where SHOULD we, or anyone, go for Truth?

A good friend reminded me yesterday that the Treasury Department advises us that if you want to know whether something is counterfeit... you need to compare it against the genuine thing. That's good advice. Click the image at left, to stay in touch with the ongoing discussion... comparing the DaVinci movie with the genuine thing.

And remember: We're going to be discussing the movie/book "DaVinci Code" at our next 'First Saturday Coffee'... June 3rd. 8am. At Paradise Bakery, here in the Clay Terrace Mall. See you then.

Childhood development charts that help new parents track every burp, gurgle and coo of a new baby are bountiful and plenty. It’s motherhood development charts that are hard to come by. Experience tells me that a reliable one would go something like this:

Week 1: The new mother may cry if over- or under-stimulated. Complains about not being able to find things. Like her waistline. On average, awake for 22 hours a day, but alert for only two. Head bobs forward in sitting position, especially after 7 o’clock at night.

Week 2: ... [continued]

Reminder: "First Saturday Coffee"... May 6

Friends & Neighbors...

Just a quick reminder re "First Saturdays Coffee" tomorrow, 8am at Paradise Bakery in Clay Terrace Mall.

Normal stuff... enjoy coffee... eating together... catch up on neighborhood news... discuss a book or topic... pray for our community. Then go home and cut grass. **smile**

Tomorrow Pat will be leading as we finish up our discussion of the "Purpose Driven Life" book.

Oh, and here's a note re NEXT MONTH... (June 3rd)... We plan to discuss the curious new movie coming out... 'DaVinci Code'. So if you're planning on seeing it, then specially plan on being with us next month too. We'd like to hear your take on it. [And tomorrow, we'll have a 'movie companion guide' with some info about it, in case you're interested on more info as you go see it. Or even if you don't go see it.]

As always, feel free to use the egroup, or, to better 'share life together'. Or contact us you know of special needs in our general neighborhood. We'd try to help.
