Wait. You've been able to look around the inside of buildings using Google maps for over 3 years now? Why did I not know about this until tonight?

There is apparently a guy named 'Bradford Shellhammer.'  ??? I bet he was the toughest guy walking around those mean streets and tough neighborhoods of Greenwich CT.

I had a thought today. I don't understand the idea of once saved always saved. That for me would be like being married to someone and you stopped talking to them, being around them, put forth and effort in the relationship.

No don't you get it? It's like being married, that one time in Reno, but you've never seen her again or had to do anything afterward and can just hang out with your boys.

Some OSASers might say that if fruits and a continued relationship didn't follow the salvation moment/event, then that means their was never a true redemptive salvationy thingy to begin with. I think that's incredibly flawed, but it does at least try to answer or resolve several potential problems (though it creates more...)

Something that someone said to me when I debated someone about this. My response, "So, you could turn away at a later date...so you could not be saved right now and not even know it, correct?"

No, no, no. You don't understand. They KNOW that they have Jesus in their heart. They said a PRAYER!  ;)

Lent always makes me see my sinfulness amplified and it makes me sick. Lord have mercy.

Olive oil is my secret.  But you knew that...you're Greek!
That month I spent visiting St Anthony's Monastery in AR, what a blessing. They had 100% unrefined olive oil that they pressed themselves. It was soooooo good, you put it on everything, salad, bread, soup. I would of even put it in my coffee if I was their long enough lol.

I haven't flown since 2005. In the interim, I've become addicted to "Aircrash Investigation" on Youtube.  :'(

You'll be ok. Unless, of course, Harrison Ford is your pilot. Then I recommend taking a parachute with you.

Do they sell that olive oil? If so, I am going to order some soon.

Harrison Ford is one of the best pilots.

Do you think it counts in my favor if I die in attempting to be there for someone's chrismation? That has to count for something. Kind of like the old Catholic folklore about dying on Good Friday resulting in the soul going straight to heaven.

St. Vladimir was tricked by this. He had his eyes on an awesome and powerful Greek lady of royal blood, and she willingly volunteered to be his godmother at his baptism. Then after the baptism, the distraught Vladimir was told that he could not have her in marriage.

I'm bored. Booooooored. I'm having a minor flu so I have stay indoors for few days. I went to work today mostly because I was too bored to stay home and too lazy to get a new sick leave. Hopefully my flu won'I'vet get any worse because of that. I've done some reading but it gets boring after a while. Of course reading a dissertation instead of some some novel might have something to do with the boredness but then again i'm a nerd so I read only boring books these days. And my laptop is broken and my tablet's battery runs down fairly quickly. First world problems are killing me.

I just wanted to speak up and say this board comprises some of the smartest people I've ever met. It's astounding and means a lot to someone who tends to be intellectually lonely. I wish you all to be happy.
