 Hey, all of you low-tech, geek-wannabes (like me) who would like surfing in a new, different web browser! Here is Opera, which you may or may not like (I do). Because Firefox was having trouble completely loading some webpages, I thought I'd give Opera a re-try. It is a refreshing change. True, Firefox has many features which Internet Explorer DOES NOT. But Opera gives Firefox a run for its money.

Don't get me wrong: IE is still a good browser. But why drive a Ford when you can drive a...(fill in the blank)? Toyota? Honda? Lexus?

Just like Linux is touted as the solution to Windows, Firefox is touted as the solution to Internet Explorer. And in my case, Opera (and IE) is the solution to 
Firefox. Ah, choices. 


Thanks to all who commented on my recent posts.  They are much appreciated.

Regarding the features and advantages of using the Tekka template from, I thought it was too stark but simple enough to do the job. However, when I found another template (Powell Street) at, I liked it best of all the others on that page.

Here is a little lesson in hyperlinking from your blog post (which I learned while doing this one!):
  1. Highlight the text you wish to hyperlink.
  2. Click the Hyperlink button in the toolbar.
  3. Enter the desired address of the hyperlink.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Depress the Bullet Points button in the toolbar, or else every new paragraph WILL BE A BULLET POINT!!! (This last one was for me because it is very tricky business to make a list like this.)
There. Now a new problem arises.  Every new line that you type will be completely hyperlinked until you do the following:

  1. Go back and select (highlight) all the text that it (the Blogger Post Editor) is hyperlinking (that you don't want hyperlinked).
  2. Click the Hyperlink button in the toolbar.
  3. Delete any text from the address bar of the JavaScript pop-up window.
  4. Click OK.
By double-spacing, you disable the bullet-point feature and return to standard paragraphs. Whew!

 I will now go back and follow my instructions to de-hyperlink this entire lesson!

Almost sounds like a horror movie, doesn't it? Actually, it's the name of the template I installed to make my blog more appealing. Whaddya think?

A Change of Template

I would like to announce that as of this posting, I have converted my blog to a new template called "Tekka," which I'm sure connotes a post-modernistic theme of high-tech "whatever" attitude. I say whatever because it was an arduous search through each and every template on before I arrived at this one, which is a fair compromise of all features I prefer in the appearance.

--Editor's note: Don't worry, I'll change my mind in the next post...

Okay, here is another post by this very occasional blogger. It takes a lot (apparently) of inspiration to get me to sit here and type a message to some indiscriminate mass of readership which I will (may) never see in this life. But because I am a Christian, and believe all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28)--whew--, this is hopefully not just another "futile" attempt at becoming one of the many (35 million) souls who yearn, nay, starve for attention from other human beings who read blogs. I must admit I read very few blogs, mainly and others associated with it.

Well, that's enough introductory blogposting. I'll just carry on with the rest of my post.

It seems there are 35 million blogs on the web today, according to Jeremy Wagstaff of the Wall Street Journal Online.

I had to start a new paragraph because the blog editor wouldn't stop underlining and hyperlinking my text! But I found out the underlining doesn't show up after the hyperlink in the published post.

In any event, let's try an experiment: FOX NEWS ...there, no underlining or hyperlinking after the hyperlink! Success.

As I was saying, here is an article (see the Wall Street Journal Online) about the glut (that's overabundance, for those of you in Rio Linda) of blogs on the Internet. There is no human way possible to read ALL THOSE BLOGS!!! Therefore, as Mr. Wagstaff suggests, one must consult an aggregator website such as to make any sense of it all. Frankly, I haven't gone there myself. But if I just click the link, why I'll be there in mere moments... yecch! Chaff and wheat.

Anyway, if you are reading this, please post a comment (unless you're an automated comment generator from deep cyberspace).

American Vision has an excellent article by Gary DeMar about an atheist who refuses to use his own common sense to determine whether Christianity--or any historical event-- is proveable and therefore credible. His foolishness is so extremely evident that I encourage you to read at least a portion of this article to see for yourself how nonsensical atheism can be and is.
