Wow, glad to see you took Michael's (internetmonk) last post literally! I found your blog through his - and have to admit - that this post had me laughing so hard - never have I seen so many "informative and helpful links" in one post! Good going! :)

Should we think of the "Left Behind" shorts in terms of our affinity for Kirk Cameron, or rather a proud declaration of coming in last in a foot race?

Ok, first off... how do you do that! How can you gather up so much interesting information and then post it like - EVERYDAY! LOL

I mean, you put so much in there that I can't possibly read it all!

Thank you for blogging fresh and interesting! And it's nice for me to find another Christian male blogger that is interesting to read.

I figure getting mentioned in, "A Case of the Monday's," is sort of the Christian blogger's equivalent of getting his picture on the Cover of Rolling Stone.

So, even though "I have all the friends that money can buy, so I'll never have to be alone," I am again honored to have a link.

I intend to buy 5 copies for my mother.
