Yes, it's another "boring" blog entry from.. yours truly. With nothing to say, I amaze and amuse myself with long-winded diatribes about NOTHING!!! One wonders, can a nobody have something to say? The answer is obvious: No!!!

I've just burned a whole paragraph of cyberspace real estate and I'm just getting started. Don't worry, I'm almost done.

With a title like that, how can you pass up a good read like this?

I've found it!!! I've found the right font for my blog: Arial "Largest" (not bold). You see, I've been searching high and low--not really, just up and down--for the right font and point-size for my new blog template. You like? I do. The search is over. Now all I have to do is italicize, underline, and embolden for emphasis.

Okay, I've decided to downsize to "Large." This might be a little more readable, in my opinion. Let's see...

If I embolden it, then what?

I actually prefer bold. But then what will I do if I want to emphasize something? I know. I'll...highlight it!!! Come on. I can't highlight everything like that, can I? Sure. Why not?

How about gray letter?

I've always preferred Arial font. I'll see how it looks published...

The definition of knowledge worker can be a nebulous one. I applaud the advent of personal computing and especially the Internet because they enable the average person to selectively educate and enlighten him- or herself. Of course, blogging can be an integral part of that process.

In this blog entry, we shall explore the intricacies, the ins and outs, of blogging and knowledge work. I do the latter and sometimes the former in my spare time because I have what most people call a "real" job. It takes a certain amount of attention and devotion to this task in order to produce anything worthy of someone else's perusal and pleasure.

Enjoyment is usually found with the "worker" rather than the observer. I say this because I generally work alone. That is, I am not in some office, hunting and pecking my way to a deadline. Instead, I am at home working at my own pace, saying what I want to whoever will read it.

This is freedom. Earlier today, I was studying online some books by Gary North and others on using his Deja Vu reader to view them. It was very enlightening, challenging to my views (however unformed they may be), and rewarding. I encourage anyone to go there ( if you feel the world is hopeless.

Well, dear reader, you and I have come to the end of another award-winning blog entry. I never know whether to call them "posts" or "entries," or for that matter, whether to use quotation marks or italics. In any event, BFN...;)

Wednesday, December 5, 2007


Well now that I've changed templates, I just have to post another entry on my blog, mainly because I want to see how the changes look.

I know you're thinking, who cares?

I'm trying not to sound like Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye, which I read while in college. It was a very depressing read, one which I don't recommend unless you are researching good books for a bad day. After all, what's a blog for?


You know, the reason someone blogs is so that they can communicate with the outside world, using only their ten fingers and a PC. I say using ten fingers because that is exactly what I am trying to do--practice typing. It truly is a blessing to be able to do this, since I am the "they" of whom I speak.

Well, when in doubt, start a new paragraph.

Wednesday, November 7, 2007


The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.

Well, I think I have indeed found the font I want to use for this and future posts. The only problem is, for emphasis I will have to use some other creative method of highlighting text, since all of it will be in bold print!!!

See what I mean? In any event, this is my font, and I'm stickin' widdit.


Today, I am trying "large Times" font. How about bold? That's even better. Now I must come up with a title for today's post. Blogging must be fun--not boring or monotonous, repetitive, on and on and on...

There are a number of points I can make right now. But I will defer to my "better angels," as CH Spurgeon called them. I could call this blog Wannablog, because I only blog when I feel like it, about things I want to blog about, without any regularity or perceptible disciplined rigor.

For my next point, I will indicate that I am currently listening to William Lane Craig on his website,, which is a premier Christian apologetics resource. Wow! I found it while visiting Ravi Zacharias' website,

And finally, go to either of these fine websites for an uncompromising defense of the historic Christian faith. You will be persuaded if not converted, and follow Christ all the way to Heaven.

Monday, October 29, 2007


Well, dear readers and friends, it looks like another day in the blogosphere, and I'm sitting here pecking out another blogpost for your enjoyment and perusal. What, you say, another blogpost?

Before I go any further, let me just say that I am delighted to be able to sit here and plod my way through, hoping to find something profound to say while edifying both myself and you. How's that for selflishness turned on its head?

As I was saying, this entry is all about YOU.

Wednesday, September 19, 2007


My blog looks like a watered-down, diluted, repetitive, boring, monotonous, lengthy diatribe not even worth looking at. I just get on this thing and type to myself. That's all. What next? Talking to myself? Not me. No way. Nope.

This whole blog thing is a fluke, a way for us dupes to get on the internet and earn those advertising gurus their respective stripes by visiting site after site of miserable ad-clogged bandwidth. What a life!

Now for a positive spin on things. I could blog about what I know of God. I recommend Stephen Charnock's "The Existence and Attributes of God."

Another "lost soul" has posted a blog entry. I mean cyberspacially lost, not spiritually lost!

Wednesday, September 12, 2007


Well, the Reverend Dr. Dennis James Kennedy has passed on to Glory, and the Internet is fertile with his legacy (witness, etc.). I have been listening for a few hours--mainly because I was sick and stayed home today-- to Dr. Kennedy and his ministry media at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church's website (  

Tuesday, August 28, 2007


The thing about blogging is, if you try to say something noteworthy or profound, you end up with writer's block--or worse, nothing at all to say.

I blog for the sheer joy of it-- not because of any accolades (real or imagined) that I may garner; not because of a vast readership (one: me); but because I can!

There you have it, a blog post to rival that of Hugh Hewitt! Not.

Saturday, August 25, 2007


I was wondering why we buy books, when the Internet is so much more convenient. We can browse page after page of text and graphics instantly. Why waste precious money? I heard one radio commentator say his bookcase was a "shrine" to old media (i.e., books, etc.)

Well, whenever I say, "Well," that usually means I am about to engage in some thoughtful summarizing or speculation. Actually, it just means I'm tired of pursuing that line of thought and would like to move on to something else, especially since I have nothing else to do at the moment. But I digress.

Books have a certain appeal that reaches a tangible need in our lives, that of physical interaction with the universe (solid matter). Book Technology, per se, is almost "as old as the hills, and twice as dusty." They possess a lasting, enduring quality of life all to themselves, a product of human and machine (witness Gutenburg's press).

Another appealing aspect of books is their legacy. Authors live and die, but their words still speak. In the Bible's book of Hebrews, chapter eleven, verse four says, "And through his [Abel's] faith, though he died, he still speaks." This speaks primarily of God's people leaving a legacy of faith, as well as of good works (see James 2:14-26). 

In books we may find a legacy of good works encapsulated in a good testimony. Of course, no one except God is perfect. But for now we have His Book (the Bible) and those of others who have followed Him faithfully. We may also witness the testimony of unbelievers who did not follow Christ, both in the Bible and outside of it, as a warning to us who do not wish to repeat their demise.

As I said earlier, I can wind up this discussion by saying, "Well," and summarizing my comments with a cliche such as, "Read any good books lately?"

Saturday, August 18, 2007


Q. How would you like to waste a whole bunch of precious bandwidth--and feed your ego--all at the same time?

Well, now you can!

Just go start a blog somewhere and blam! You'll be typing nonsense with the rest of us blogheads.

Q. How can I dedicate so much free time to such a self-serving activity as blogging?

It's simple: you can!

Here is an unsolicited link to Try listening to a plethora of radio genres and see what "free" will get you!

Back to what I was blogging about. With so much creative freedom, and a healthy dose of caffeine and chocolate, THE SKY'S THE LIMIT!!! Why, you can type yourself into such a fit of delusional grandeur that you'll wonder why no media moguls have yet discovered your otherwise-hidden talent for pointless prose.

Ah, but there's the rub! Without a point, perhaps you need to visit sites like or WorldNet Daily (

That's all for now.

I have to apologize to my readers for misleading them. I stated in the previous two entries' titles, "San Diego."  Well, actually I was still in Arizona when I snapped these photos. But they were taken on the way to San Diego!!!

Never fear. I plan to post some REAL photos of San Diego in an upcoming post.

Monday, August 13, 2007

ANOTHER SCENE FROM SAN DIEGO is messing with me. Every time I try to insert a new photo image into the article, it sticks it on top, NOT WHERE I WANT IT!!!

Okay, here is another picture, Lord willing.

LESSON NUMBER ONE: Blogger puts it at the top of the page...always!

Now here is an experiment. I will keep typing until I feel sufficiently far away from the above image to safely insert another one. Nope. Not feelin' it.



I thought total strangers and others would like to see my photos of a trip to San Diego.

Here is the sunset on the way up there. Now mind you that on, I can textwrap around this picture. But it remains to be seen whether it will keep pushing the image downscreen, or ju...yep. It does.

The key is to hit the down-arrow until you see the insertion point alongside the photo, like this. Then start typing all you want to, until you see the blinking cursor/insertion point start over on the left side of the page again.

I love explaining things because it helps me to understand them better.

Okay, next picture.

Well, intrepid readers, I have rediscovered Big Band music, that brand of jazz that early twentieth-century Americans (and others) love. It is quite nostalgic and heart-warming to listen to and read about the Big Band era and its legion of musicians who created a style and sound of music unique and truly America. Born out of the Great Depression and World War II, big band captures the heart and soul of America as it was coming through some very hard and dark times in the world. Music was a major means of escaping, if only through the ears, mind, and heart, from the big bad world.

Every generation of people needs its artistic expression to overcome the evils of Satan's kingdom. I'm not saying big band--or any other--music is particularly evil or good. But music that does not in its primary focus glorify God, as does music by Christians, is sinful. However, in the overall economy of God's common grace which He sheds upon all, music can be seen in its broader context of glorifying God. In a Christian worldview, all things glorify God, because God will not allow anything or anyone to rob Him of the glory due to His Name. He will put down ALL pride which thinks otherwise.

Hence, the Christian can see God's grace in all things. Even big band music.

Today's post is a continuation of the second paragraph of yesterday's post, which I composed the morning after I started it. 

Right now, I'm using Safari 3 Public Beta for Windows as an Internet browser. So far, so good. 

Friday, July 20, 2007


I am currently listening to RC Sproul online (, and I wish to accomplish two things (at least) in today's blogpost: (a) tout the virtue of LISTENING to RC Sproul; and, (b) blogging for what it's worth.

It is now a day later, and I'm listening to Tom Shrader on CDROM deliver an excellent series of lectures on sexuality in the context of Biblical Christianity. 

Wednesday, July 18, 2007


I am blogging to you today because I wish to perpetuate the notion that my blog is worth reading. I occasionally address topics on current events or faith. But by and large, I waste precious cyberspace and bandwidth with my egocentric diatribes.

I have frequently considered changing the name of my blog to something more thematic, like "Blog To Self," or even "Blog For Nothing." Apparently, I haven't found my true theme yet. Perhaps "Blogging a Dead Horse" would be a more appropriate blogname.

You see, half the fun of blogging is pretending that someone is actually reading it!!! The other half is listening to RC Sproul online.

I have exhausted my subject matter at this point. Blog your mind.

Saturday, July 7, 2007


I thought this might be a catchy title to today's post. I am listening to Bill Bennett online at I have read some of his book, "America: the Last Best Hope."

Friday, July 6, 2007


One good way to blog is to play audio while doing it. Have a high-speed Internet connection that will allow you to listen to media while you ponder and post your thoughts.  


Once again, I am pondering a name change to my blog, wondering if (and hoping) it will change the apparent lack of interest in reading my blog.  Shakespeare said, "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." I wonder if my blog "stinks."  At least I can practice being boring rather than coming at it without any practice! 

In a previous post, I mentioned "stream of consciousness." I don't fully comprehend the meaning of that term. But I do, however, pretend to sound like I know what it means. For one thing, I am able to type a lot more quickly when I am "on a roll." How's that for a highbrow definition?

Another thing I like to do when blogging is to pretend I am introducing a new topic to the discussion (What discussion? I'm talking to myself!) The internet is the only place where you can legitimately talk to yourself whilest untold multitudes of people are listening--or not. 

I have found from experience that the only way for people to find my blog is for me to use key words that they are searching with using Google or some other search engine to find something that will whet their appetite for information. Hence, the Internet is the vehicle with which more and more tech-savvy people will want to fill their otherwise empty heads with a world of stuff that will drown their sense of ...well, you know what I mean.

As I fast approach the point of this whole diatribe, I am left to consider what may be termed "Spirit-led blogging." I was born again by the Spirit of God, the Creator of the universe. He has spiritually made Himself known to me, mainly through His Word (the Bible) and other people whom He has regenerated as well. I can discern more and more what is of Him and what isn't.

I must wind up my post here, as I am getting impatient with the whole idea of blogging to myself. What insights are to be gained by my continuance of this futile exercise in self-aggrandizement?

This blogging thing is so addictive that I just had to return to my blog and blog some more. Blogs away!

At the risk of sounding redundant if not vain and pointless, I would like to take this opportunity to say that personal computing is addictive:

...the more you learn, the more you will want to learn;
...and its corollary: the more you can do, the more you will want to do
...and the more you know how to do, the more you will want to know how to do what it is you don't know how to do yet.

Is that... "clear?"

Well, no great shakes there. It's all common sense, really.

As I was saying (or not saying), PCing is chill!!! I believe that is the correct contemporary vernacular. If not, oh well. You know what I mean.

I haven't thought of a title for today's entry, but I imagine necessity will force me to come up with a succinct phrase of relevant import, such as "Today's Post," or something original like that.

Well, I sense the imminence of impending termination as I seek to wind up this post. Hasta la vista!


Yes, that great cyberbard William Mousepointe said, "A blog by any other name is still a blog."

The biggest challenge to keeping a blog is finding a topic to blog about. How original can I be? Am I being stale, aimless, pointless? Does it glorify God?

I leave the answers to these questions to you. Perhaps as a Christian I can inspire you to seek God while He may be found. Call upon Him while He is near.

I want to wish all Americans a Happy Fourth of July!!!

Praise God for all the military protecting and fighting for our freedom! May God keep this country firmly established on the foundation of His Word.

Why blog when nobody reads it?

Woe is me. I keep an unread blog.

Boo hoo! Where's the Kleenex? Cry me a digital river.

Have you ever felt sorry for yourself because nobody leaves comments on your blog?

I know I have. Which is why I am blogging today.

Let's overcome those feelings of hopelessness, of being lost in a sea, nay, an OCEAN of Bloggers Anonymous.

Before we wax TOO poetic, let's get practical. We should all just channel our favorite mentor at the moment and blog away. For me, it's...Kim Komando.

Now before you all just shuffle off to another blog, let me finish my diatribe. I'm on a roll here.

I've found the best thing to do when blogging is to just keep going. Zzzzzzz...

You know, when you start to get sleepy because it's BEDTIME!!!

It's bedtime.

Saturday, May 26, 2007


A new age of enlightenment is beginning in this country. It is evident, for example, in the opening of the Creation Museum in Kentucky May 28. This story has graced the pages of many media outlets on the Internet lately.

One story which I read at, states that the museum's opening "has drawn snickers from media and condemnation from U.S. scientists." (emphasis mine) Let's be accurate: left-wing media snickers at Biblical accounts of history; and, unbelieving atheistic scientists condemn a Biblical foundation for science.

Well, now that I've cleared the air on that, let me also quote the article where Dr. Eugenie Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education, says, "Teachers don't deserve a student coming into class saying 'Gee Mrs. Brown, I went to this fancy museum and it said you're teaching me a lie.' "

Why not? Do students deserve a teacher who misleads them, even if the teacher firmly believes what is being taught? No. They deserve a Biblical account for history and science.

I am all for a return to God in all things--not abandoning true science and history. But using the foundation God gave us in His Word and in His Son, Jesus Christ, we can preserve the heritage of our country and hopefully stave off the onslaught which Satan mounts against God's people.

What's In A Name? (Or, I AM Your Steppingstone)

Now that's a nice name for a blog, isn't it?

A Blog For All Seasons...

... is a place to go when you're feeling blue--or green!
... is a blog for all seasons!!!
... is a steppingstone on the Information Superhighway!!!


Monday, May 7, 2007


The only problem with blogging every day is that you have to come up with something new EVERY DAY!!! Now that doesn't sound too difficult for the average Joe or Jane Blogger. But to someone who does not make his or her living with words, it can be a taxing proposition. They call it "writer's block." Whatever the appropriate term is, it can be devastating.

For example, I am listening to Gary DeMar online. I am also blogging. Perhaps the fear of looking stupid makes me think twice--or thrice--about everything I type--and say! So much so that I find myself hyphenating!!!

I've lost all my readers. Perhaps I can gain them back...

But for now, bedtime.

Saturday, May 5, 2007


That's what blogging is!!!

It is a process by which one wracks his or her left- and right-brains in order to make one's voice "heard" online. The object is to overcome any sense of hopeless anonymity and sameness, and produce something worthy of someone else's readership.

Now I'm under no delusions that I might one day command the attention (and dollars) of thousands in the vast expanse of the English-speaking community. But creative writing is just that: a challenge to say something worthwhile in an original way. My English teachers hammered that point home many times, no matter how badly my romanticized memory recalls it.

There have been many journalists who discharged their duties faithfully in the newsroom. Once in a while, one strikes a chord that resonates above the tone of cliche and hits the bullseye. That's what we all strive for in the whole mundane yet wonderful process.

Now I don't purport to be a journalist--only a blogger. Very seldom do I recall reading such inspiring prose in a periodical that made me feel glad that I can read and write. Perhaps it was a newspaper article, a magazine column, or some piece of writing somewhere that spoke to my heart in a timeless and eternal way.

The ultimate book to read is, of course, the Bible. You cannot find more inspirational prose, poetry, history and prophecy, allegory and narrative. Praise the Lord!


It has been almost a month since I last posted an entry. Have I dried up? I have only been inspired enough to blog today. I have been a consumer more than a producer online lately. I must admit, this blog thing is not for the faint of heart. Originality is the watchword of blogging, and of any other creative process.

I would like to know one thing: does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care (about time). And so I can't imagine why we've all got time enough to cry. (Courtesy: Chicago)

That was my effort to prime the pump of originality and creativity, and get the juices flowing.

How does one keep a positive tone in his or her blog? Well, one must assume a superior attitude and posture which eschews all compromise with mediocrity. One must channel a British alter ego from the imagination to the keyboard with a minimum of hindrance. Of course, this would only work with an English blog, you see.

Anyway, the cutting edge of today's mass media IS THE BLOGOSPHERE. The ongoing challenge of blogging is to rise above the din of mediocrity and the morass of mundane verbosity, in order to blaze a trail of thought which would spur the reader to some new level of insight or wisdom which was heretofore never experienced! I believe this glorifies God our Creator, when we rise above our circumstances and soar on eagle's wings. See what I mean?

Well, I must wind up today's post. For better or worse, there it is.

Wednesday, April 18, 2007

Here is a link to one of my favorite pages to visit on the web. It is a great encouragement to hear the Word of God. "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God." (Romans 10:17 ESV)

Saturday, April 7, 2007


It's hard to believe that it has already been a month since my last post! Never fear, for I am even now smitten with Blogger Influenza, the strain which presents itself as a desire for self-promotion and fun. I fully intend to continue blogging to myself, since, you may recall, NOBODY reads this blog!!!

In the event, however, that I should visit my blog and post an entry for your perusal and reading pleasure, I shall do so with the utmost consideration and care for what goes into it each and every time. If not, you may visit another blog at no cost to you!

Now if that doesn't draw the readers in like fish in a dragnet, I don't know what will!

Wednesday, March 7, 2007



The web address in my browser says, ""

Does that mean we are in the infamous Web 2.0?

I suppose so. Right now, I'm listening to Fox News Radio online. It's pretty engaging, informative, and entertaining. Well, that's a winning combination.

At this point, I am out of things to blog. Enjoy 2.0.

Tuesday, March 6, 2007


I would like to take this opportunity to recommend that everyone who gets sick and stays home during the day listen online--when you're feeling better, of course-- to BBC radio. It is a refreshing, if not depressing, look at how people in other parts of the world look at the world, and the USA. Intellectually engaging, rather than sensually driven, it is a nice change from the usual hyperactive, attention-deficit-making cadence normally delivered by our mainstream media. It is particularly interesting to listen to how they cover stories from America.

What I like about it is, they take the time to discuss the issues and stories of interest, with plenty of input from the people involved and analysis by experts. You will feel, as I did, that the story has been adequately covered. A plus, which I also noticed with pleasure, is the noticeable--hence, I noticed-- LACK OF COMMERCIALS!!! Now I am betraying my apparent hypocrisy of supporting capitalism and disdaining commercials. My remedy for this would be to buy a satellite radio, right?

I encourage you all to check out the BBC World Service online.

I still have the itch to post a blog entry. So here goes.

Er, what was I saying? Oh, yes. Haiku is Japanese poetry in which there are three lines totaling seventeen syllables. It may look something like this:

A haiku is a
poem with five, then seven,
then five syllables.

There. Now you try it!


A blog
is a good place to go
and vent, even though
it is "uncouth" to do so
in mixed company.

A blog
is your space,
not MySpace!
It's all yours
to post and read
your inmost (not anymore)

It's your call
whether to end it here
or here.

What drives the psyche to pursue
endless verse,
only to end it in utter
...writer's block?

Perhaps this is a good point to end my poetic diatribe.
Is that what that was?
Come on, this is a blog, not Open Mike Poetry Night!!!
Sure it is. Next time, I'll try haiku.
Is that like sudoku, only with words?


Wednesday, February 21, 2007


This is a blog post "for blog's sake." That means it is only a self-indulgent attempt at maintaining some semblance of credibility as a "serious" blogger. I will not admit to not being a "serious blogger." I will only promise to take a stab every now and then at making an effort to contribute a little wisdom if not enrichment to the life of some imaginary reader. Perhaps this is...YOU.

I am presently listening to Hugh Hewitt on the radio. During commercial breaks, however, I am listening online to the White Horse Inn, which is a reformed, Protestant, evangelical Christian talk show.

Well, this is my third paragraph, and I haven't figured out what to blog about. I am, however, having a blast typing and listening to the radio. That's all that matters.

Now I have the radio on the Suns game. It's almost game time. has the game posted and ready for stats. Well, I think I'll keep simul-blogging for now. Actually, I think they call it a "blogcast" when you simultaneously blog and cover a mass media event such as a basketball game (which I won't do).

As they say in text-messagese: BFN :)

Saturday, February 17, 2007


Well, even though it's already February, I am inclined to make changes to my blog (regardless of the time or season of the year).

Now then, the last time I posted, we were mulling the subject of, what was it.. oh, yes, the year of Christ's birth. We had established the "fact" that Christ was born, er, four years before He was born! Sometimes history just doesn't add up.

[I had to peek out of my Editor's window to see that, because these things escape me from time to time.]

But that's not the subject of today's post! I just thought it would lend continuity to the flow of things if I referenced the previous entry before proceeding to...

... today's topic: a new template. For those who are unschooled in all things blog, that is the appearance of your blog regarding colors, layout, etc. Now I don't purport to be a teacher or anything. But a blog is a good place to pretend you are one. And why not? Nobody else is reading it!!!

But I digress. Whenever I go six months to a year without seeing any comments left on my blog, that concerns me. It tells me: (A) I am a lousy blogger; and (B) nobody reads lousy blogs. Why can't I be like Hugh Hewitt and command the attention, loving or otherwise, of thousands if not millions of readers who have no opinion of their own (yet) or who have not yet discovered the joy of blogging to yourself?

Ah, my biting sarcasm has returned full force. No delinquency of rhetorical venom here! Ann Coulter is the Gold Standard for biting, sarcastic wit; and we miniscule blogger-wannabes type our little diatribes out with tremulous vigor and drooling spittle --okay, okay, that's a little "over the top." What fun it is to exhaust a word-picture to its utterly graphic end!

Does this blogger pretend to channel Shakespeare? Why doth my mind achieve new heights ere I consume chocolate and ice cream? Nonsense! Imagination and Creativity travel alone--and light!!!

Adieu! My right-brain has spun out of control...

Friday, January 5, 2007


Well, folks, it looks like we've made it to another year on the Julian calendar. Just remember: Jesus was born in 4 BC because of "history's greatest numerical error."

But first, let me say thank you to HeathersWorldAz for leaving a nice comment on my last post. It's always encouraging to read of someone else's opinion about what you're writing on.

Now then, according to Dr. Paul Maier in his book, "The First Christmas":

"It was a sixth-century Roman monk-mathematician-astronomer named Dionysius Exiguus (Dionysius the Little) who unknowingly committed what became history's greatest numerical error in terms of cumulative effect. For in reforming the calendar to pivot about the birth of Christ, he dated the Nativity in the year 753 from the founding of Rome, when in fact Herod had died only 749 years after Rome's founding. The result of Dionysius' chronology, which remains current, was to give the correct traditional date for the founding of Rome, but one that is at least four or five years off for the birth of Christ."

Well, now that we all know why Christ was born before He was born, let's have a happy, safe, and prosperous new year! May God bless us, everyone.
