If you don't know GOD, don't make stupid remarks!!!!!!! A United
States Marine was attending some college courses between
assignments. He had completed missions in Iraq and Afghanistan

One of the courses had a professor who was an a vowed atheist and
a member of the ACLU. One day the professor shocked the class
when he came in. He looked to the ceiling and flatly stated, 'God, if you
are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform. I'll give you
exactly 15 minutes.' The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin
drop. Ten minutes went by and the professor proclaimed, 'Here I
am God. I'm still waiting.'
It got down to the last couple of minutes when the Marine got out
of his chair, went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him; knocking
him off the platform. The professor was out cold. The Marine went
back to his seat and sat there, silently. The other students were
shocked and stunned and sat there looking on in silence.
The professor eventually came to, noticeably shaken, looked at the
Marine and asked, 'What the heck is the matter with you? Why did
you do that?'
The Marine calmly replied, 'God was too busy today protecting
America's soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid
stuff and act like an idiot.
So, He sent me.
This is my FIRST EVER Brand New Car

It is a 2008 Honda Accord ELX fully loaded with
Navigation and everything.

I just got it last night and I LOVE it. It is so cute and ZIPPY!!!! lol

Look at this GREAT new challenge Babette has going over at Just for The Scrap Of It!

This is REALLY interesting, and I am excited to see what people come up with.
Check it out.....

Abstract works of art have designs, shapes or colors that do not look like specific physical objects. As such, abstracts are a lot harder to understand than representational works of art. When you look at an abstract work of art, you often have no idea what it is you are actually seeing.

In general, there are two types of abstract works of art. The first type of portrays objects that have been "abstracted" (taken) from nature. Although what you see may not look realistic, it is close enough that you can, at least, get an idea of what you are looking at.


A second type of abstract, sometimes referred to as "pure" abstract art, is even more obtuse. They do not reflect any form of conventional reality: all you see are shapes, colors, lines, patterns, and so on. In some cases, the design itself might be pleasing to the eye, and we might look upon the painting as nothing more than a decoration.


Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to create an "abstract" layout - move outside of your "box" and attempt to create something that people have to really look at to understand. Have fun with this - let your creativity flow!!

The participation gift for this challenge will be a coupon good for $2.50 off of your next order (minimum order $5.00) from Babette's store.

This challenge will run from 1-15-08 thru 2-14-08.
