Mar. 30, 2009

One year from today, March 30, 2010, is Passover.  (This year, Passover is April 9.)  If my European Neighbourhood Policy and Daniel 9:27 hypothesis is correct, and we are nearly 2½ years into the 70th Week, then the Third Temple (or at least some building in which sacrifices and offerings are performed) should be standing in Jerusalem no later than a year from today.

If not, I will be the first to admit that my seven-year hypothesis (Fall of 2006 to the Fall of 2013) is incorrect.  It will not cause me to doubt the Daniel 9:27 prophecy.  It simply will mean that the timing is off.  However, I still have seen absolutely nothing that would negate or contradict that possibility, and countless things in the past couple of years that seem to support it.

Admittedly, it does seem to be next to impossible that sacrifices and offerings will be taking place in Jerusalem a year from today.  However, I know very well that God is capable of inconceivable, mind-boggling miracles.  I do have 100% faith in that.

I really like lasagna, so today I made two of them.  They’re pretty gigantic, because they’re in pans that are 3 inches deep.  I did that because I wanted to put extra ingredients in them, since I want them to last for awhile.  The tops may look burned, but they really aren’t.  The cheese is just short of “crispy,” which is how I like it.

As you can see, I really like garlic, too.  I minced up two whole garlic bulbs, one for each lasagna.  Garlic is one of the most healthful things you can eat.  Although I don’t eat it all that frequently, I easily could.

People who have been around me, after I eat something with a lot of garlic in it, have not complained or looked at me funny yet.  I don’t know if they can’t smell the garlic or if they are just being nice.  Of course, it doesn’t really matter to me what people think.  If they don’t like being near me, I guess they have two choices: 1) leave or 2) eat something with a lot of garlic in it.  I don’t mind sharing my lasagna.

Barack Obama gave a lengthy press conference tonight, in an attempt to sell his budget proposals to the public.  This time, he viewed a teleprompter directly in front of him (as opposed to looking right and left at two teleprompters, as he usually does).  It made him appear as though he were looking into the camera and speaking directly to Americans.  But, as usual, he was reading his speech.

15-second slideshow

After his speech, he took several questions from the audience.  When asked how realistic was the prospect of peace in the Middle East, his answer contained many of the “goals” that are stated in the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument: Israel, an important document between the European Union and Israel, which is part of the European Neighbourhood Policy:

The achievement of lasting peace in the Middle East is a central aim of the EU, whose main objective is a two-State solution leading to a final and comprehensive settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on implementation of the Road Map, with Israel and a democratic, viable, peaceful and sovereign Palestinian State living side-by-side in peace within secure and recognised borders and enjoying normal relations with their neighbours.

If you think Obama is dumb and clueless, you are mistaken.  If you think that Obama sincerely wants to help America out of its financial mess, you also are wrong.  He is a very brilliant man.  He also is one of the greatest deceivers that America, and the world, has ever seen.  I am convinced that he has a globalist agenda in mind and suspect that he may be anticipating a very high position in the eventual world government.  See Barack Obama: False Prophet?

Mount Redoubt, in Alaska, began erupting late last night and has continued throughout today.  The ash cloud has reached 60,000 feet (about 11 miles or 18,000 meters) above sea level.  Here is a cool doppler animation of a portion of the eruption (click on it to see a larger view):

The last major volcanic eruption in the world was only five days ago, on Mar. 18, 2009:

Undersea Volcano Erupts Off Tonga Coast

I am becoming more and more convinced that we are in the period described by Jesus as “the beginning of birth pains” (Matthew 24:7,8).  If so, things are going to continue to “heat up.”

Mar. 20, 2009

Conspiracy theories and theorists abound today.  Some of them are so far removed from reality that it is laughable.  On the other hand, some, while lacking 100% credibility and reliability, have messages that are worthy of consideration.

Alex Jones is both interesting and controversial at the same time.  For instance, I think he believes, or at least leans toward the belief, that George W. Bush was behind the 9/11/01 attacks on New York and Washington, DC.  Although I personally do not accept this notion, I do not automatically reject other claims by Jones, especially those pertaining to Barack Obama.

His recent 1 hour 53 minute documentary, The Obama Deception, which was released just this month, has some extremely interesting and chilling information about Obama, the Federal Reserve, and the Bilderberg Group.  While I find most of Jones’ methods in dealing with Bilderberg people (such as yelling at them on his megaphone) to be pointless and ineffective, I still consider the information he has collected to be fascinating.

Alex Jones previously presented some of the shrouded activities by the Bilderbergs in a 2 hour 19 minute documentary, Endgame, which was released in 2007.  It is thought, by many, that this group is “behind the scenes” of global financial markets and governments and is on its way to implementing and controlling a one-world government.

Jones’ documentary provides what I believe are plausible explanations for the catastrophic financial meltdown, not only in the United States but worldwide, and the mind-boggling, so-called “remedies” that have gone into effect in the past six months.  It also puts a spotlight on Barack Obama, revealing many things about him that have eluded the observation of most of the public.  The last few minutes of the documentary include very plausible predictions of what may be coming soon.  It is sobering and alarming.

If the information in the documentary is true, it completely supports the principles about which I have written in my commentary, Barack Obama: False Prophet?  If you have the time, I recommend watching and listening to The Obama Deception, although the volume may be somewhat low and might require headphones, especially if there is external noise where you are, when you are listening to it.

Mar. 18, 2009

I have been asked why, in Natural Disasters and Socio-Economic Collapse and in The 70th Week chart, I have included “volcanic eruptions” as part of end-time disasters.  Well, Jesus said that “earthquakes in various places” would be part of the “beginning of birth pains” (Matthew 24:7,8).  Both earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are seismic events, and every volcanic eruption is accompanied by earthquakes.

Just today, there was a powerful underwater volcanic eruption near Tonga, an island about halfway between Australia and Tahiti.  There have been several other notable volcanic eruptions over the past 1½ year.  Go here to read about today’s eruption, and click the photo down the page on the right to see and read about other eruptions:

Undersea Volcano Erupts Off Tonga Coast

Probably one of the next eruptions we can expect to see is that of Mount Redoubt in Alaska, which has been threatening to blow for almost two months.  During the last week of December, 2008, there were several earthquakes underneath Yellowstone Lake (see my Dec. 31, 2008, entry).  Let’s hope that this does not result in an eruption, since Yellowstone is the largest super-volcano on the North-American continent.  Yikes.

In a word, the earth is “groaning.” As we get closer to the end of the age, the following will become more and more true:  “We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.  Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies” (Romans 22,23).

Mar. 17, 2009

I receive many questions about the Bible and prophecy topics.  One popular topic is that of the Rapture.  I have held to the Pre-wrath Rapture view for a couple of decades.  Although I embrace the principle of multiple Rapture events, I continue to maintain that the primary or main Rapture will take place soon after the opening of the Sixth Seal, but prior to the opening of the Seventh Seal, of the heavenly scroll (Revelation 5:1-7).

However, relatively recently, I have looked more closely at certain Bible passages such as Matthew 25:1-13 and Revelation 12:1-6.  I now believe it is quite plausible to consider the feasibility of a Mid-tribulation RaptureIf the European Neighbourhood Policy is the prophesied agreement of Daniel 9:27, such a Rapture event most likely would take place during Passover Week 2010 (that is, the first week of April 2010).

From my ENP commentary, considering October 22, 2006 (a new moon), potentially to be the starting date of the 70th Week (final seven years of this age), then exactly 1,260 days (Revelation 11:3, 12:6) following that date is April 4, 2010.  Interestingly, April 4, 2010, is significant on both the Christian and Jewish calendars.  It is both Resurrection Day (Easter Sunday) and the Feast of Firstfruits (the third main Jewish feast in the Spring).

Perhaps, then, there will be a Mid-tribulation Rapture of believers at that time.  My email response to someone, with more details about this, is here:

I don’t know why shuttle launches fascinate me.  I believe that they are a complete waste of money and time, partly because of this bleak economy, but mostly because we very likely are well over two years into the 70th Week (as per the European Neighbourhood Policy).  If so, this is not the time to be doing advanced and sophisticated tests in space.  There’s really no point in doing so.

15-second slideshow

Still, I enjoy watching the shuttle take off.  I thought this one was especially spectacular, since it was a night-time launch. I’d love to be the one to press the final button that causes it to blast off.  Wow.

Mar. 13, 2009

Today I made a big batch of stir-fry.  Man, did it turn out great.  I’ll heat up this stuff for dinner for at least a week and never get tired of it.

Here’s my recipe for it: Stir-Fry Garlic Chicken & Vegetables.  I minced up an entire globe of garlic into this batch.  I often use way more garlic than the recipe calls for, as long as I am the only one eating it.  There never can be too much.

Mar. 11, 2009

I don’t know why I am captivated by full moons...just am.  It’s not really a “romantic” thing.  I think I just like to try different settings on my camera.

13-second slideshow

I guess one thing that fascinates me is that the same side of the moon always faces the earth.  I am certain that this could not happen by chance.  I believe the Grand Designer of the universe did it, to point to His glory.

Mar. 6, 2009

Somebody sent me this thing comparing water and Coca-Cola.  I thought it was pretty interesting, especially since sometimes I have some of the purported symptoms of dehydration.  I cannot vouch for the statistics included in the article.

Water or Coke?

It is very rare that I will drink a carbonated soda of any type.  This afternoon, I drank a tall glass of hot (green) tea, which I rarely do.  I ate my usual oatmeal and fruit concoction.  Surprisingly, I did not remember to eat dinner tonight.

When I realized that I had forgotten dinner, it was late and I was only mildly hungry.  So I skipped it altogether and actually lost a pound.  Maybe the increased hydration caused that.  I may make this a regular habit.

Mar. 1, 2009

I have been asked, by some, how concerned I am about the plummeting stock market and the declining economy, as well as how President Obama is handling everything.  I am extremely concerned, and I am not impressed at all.

I realize that most people want to believe that everything is going to turn out just fine.  It is human nature to feel that way.  Well, everything will be fine—once Jesus turns to rule and reign.  And I strongly suspect that this could be only a handful of years away.

There is a dark tunnel ahead to go through.  Frankly and honestly speaking, I feel that the USA (and the world) are headed for disaster, and there is nothing that we can do about it, because it has been prophesied to happen.  I have written a commentary about this, but don’t read it if you’d rather not take the chance of being bummed out:

Natural Disasters and Socio-Economic Collapse

In that commentary, I have a link to this commentary as well:

Barack Obama: False Prophet?

Feb. 22, 2009

I watched the Academy Awards tonight.  Or, rather, I had it on the TV while I was doing other things.  Ho hum.  Actually, I’ve always liked Meryl Streep, so I enjoyed seeing her.

I think Meryl is a very versatile and convincing actress.  Too bad she didn’t win the Oscar for Best Actress.  Of course, she already has won two Oscars in the past.  Anyway, here were the six big winners:

  • Best Picture:  Slumdog Millionaire
  • Best Director:  Danny Boyle for Slumdog Millionaire
  • Best Actor in a Leading Role:  Sean Penn for Milk
  • Best Actress in a Leading Role:  Kate Winslet for The Reader
  • Best Actor in a Supporting Role:  Heath Ledger for The Dark Knight
  • Best Actress in a Supporting Role:  Penelope Cruz for Vicky Cristina Barcelona

I still don’t quite get how a dead guy can win an Oscar, but I’m sure that’s just me.  Maybe Hollywood now thinks it has the power to resurrect people from the dead.  Personally, I feel that most who work for the film industry live in a self-deluded fantasy.

Feb. 20, 2009

I listened briefly to Ray Comfort on the radio today.  He and Kirk Cameron founded The Way of the Master ministries.  I thought his answers to a couple of questions, from a lady who phoned in, were good.

She asked two questions (paraphrasing):

  1. If God is so good and merciful, then why did He allow Job’s first family to die? (Job 1:13-19)
  2. Why did God test Abraham by telling him to sacrifice Isaac? (Genesis 22:1-14)
Ray answered as follows (paraphrasing):
  1. Everybody dies, eventually.  Job’s family was no different.  We all deserve death, because we all have sinned.  The wages of sin is death.  They had no regard for God; all they did was feast and drink, and their sins caught up with them.  Each of us should be happy that our sins have not caught up with us yet.  So far God’s mercy has been with us.
  2. Abraham figured that God would provide a sacrifice in Isaac’s place, which is what happened.  God stopped Abraham just in time, because that is the way God had planned it.  All of God’s blessings upon Abraham would go through Isaac, his only legitimate son.  Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son for God (which would have happened, had God not stopped him) was a foreshadowing of God’s sacrifice of His only begotten Son, Jesus, for the sins of humanity.  It simply was part of God’s overall plan.

Another thing that Ray said is something with which I adamantly disagree.  He indicated that an old earth would imply evolution, so therefore we must live on a young earth.  This is an erroneous assumption.  No matter how old the universe and earth are, even the simplest forms of life could not exist, nor could any species “evolve” into another species, without an Intelligent Designer.

This is not to say that evolution between species has occurred, even with God’s direction.  No such biological changes ever have been discovered, nor will they ever be found, because they do not exist.  And this is in a universe that is about 13.7 years old and on an earth that is about 4.56 billion years old.  It is too bad that so many Christians continue to embrace the fallacy of a universe and earth that are only a few thousand years old.  See my Creation commentary for more.

Feb. 17, 2009

Today, Barack Obama signed the “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009” into law.  This was after the U.S. Congress voted for it on Friday the 13th (see the Feb. 13, 2009 entry).  I feel that the words at the bottoms of some of the photos below are very significant (especially pertaining to the $787 billion).


30-second slideshow

Obviously, Americans who are captivated, spellbound, enchanted, and mesmerized by Barack Obama are “dancing in the streets.”  Many hope that, now, a rosy, promising, bright economy and happy future are on the horizon.

5-second slideshow

I’m sorry to say, but this pie-in-the-sky, candy-cane, glitter-dust fantasy is going to evaporate soon; and the stark, harsh reality behind it will materialize.  During his speech, Obama even said, “Today does mark the ‘beginning of the end.’”  I think he probably meant the “end” of the economic downturn.

However, I believe that his words were prophetic in referring to the “end” of the American system of socio-economics, as we know it.  Goodbye capitalism; hello socialism—the “Socialist States of America”!  Even the stock market, tumbling 297.81 points today, seemed to sense that there was something wrong with all of this.

I am convinced that it is time for people, not only in America but worldwide, to begin preparing themselves—emotionally, psychologically, spiritually, and materially—as best they can, for what Jesus identified as the worst time in human history (Matthew 24:21).  Many already have begun by using my Adversity Supplies Basic Check List and stocking up on food and basic necessities.

So far, I have seen absolutely nothing yet that negates my hypothesis connecting the European Neighbourhood Policy and Daniel 9:27.  If I am right, then a Great Depression, along with the prophesied Great Tribulation, are approaching rapidly.  I suspect that the USA will declare itself bankrupt within 1 to 1½ year, thus making the dollar essentially worthless.  Then, most likely, the Amero will become the new currency—this en route to a global currency, on the way to a one-world government.

Feb. 13, 2009

The U.S. Congress has rushed to pass the $787 billion “stimulus package.”  It is known as the “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.”  Of course, the more that garbage sets out in the sun, the more it stinks; so they had to pass it in a hurry.  Also, Queen Pelosi had to hurry out of Washington to catch her flight to Europe to receive an award.  Why do incompetent, inept people get awards?

Senators and Representatives, alike, have acknowledged that not even one of them has read through the entire “stimulus package”; it is way too long for anyone to examine it in just a few days.  It makes zero sense to vote for something, especially this colossal, which has not been read and studied thoroughly.  If you are going to try to solve a problem with other people's money, you need to do it in a very focused and cost-effective way.  In the case of the “stimulus package,” this did not happen.  I think it is the biggest abomination in legislative history.

Just five months ago, we were told by economic “experts” that the gigantic $700 billion dollar “bail-out package” would “fix” our economy.  We were told that if Congress didn’t pass it, our entire socio-economic system would shut down, and the results would be catastrophic.  Not only did it not fix anything, but the economy is in dreadfully much worse shape now, and another million-plus people have lost their jobs.  The federal government’s big plans have failed, the money is gone, and we don’t even know where it went.

What is going to happen several months from now, when it is clear that the new “stimulus package” has failed (which I believe it will)?  Will yet another “emergency plan” be implemented?  We’ll see.  I suspect that martial law will be wedged in there, at some point.  In any case, I predict that two things will happen:

  1. Enormous amounts of new money will be printed, resulting in a disastrous escalation in prices: hyperinflation.
  2. Huge debts and financial obligations will result, resulting in the American public’s being expected to pick up the slack: soaring taxes.

By the way, this does seem to be a very appropriate day, Friday the 13th, to pass a disastrous “stimulus package.”  I have little doubt that we now will be in for years of “exceedingly bad luck.”

For one thing, I am looking for the explosion of Mount Redoubt in Alaska to take place soon.  I know that if I were Mount Redoubt, I certainly would explode in an outrage of protest of the very extravagant, wasteful, reckless, and imprudent “stimulus package” monstrosity passed by the U.S. Congress today.  Personally, I believe that all who voted for it need to be “instructed” by the Board of Education.

Feb. 4, 2009

Someone asked me what I typically eat during the day.  Actually, I eat the same thing almost everyday.  I rarely eat anything before about 1:00 to 1:30 p.m.  Then I have a large bowl of uncooked raw oats mixed with various things, mostly fruits, plus skim milk poured over everything.  Today I mixed in the following, although it’s not always the same:

  • red apple
  • orange
  • strawberries
  • blueberries
  • green apple
  • ½ peach
  • red grapes
  • raisins
  • banana
  • ½ pear
  • green grapes
  • almonds
  • It’s nice to live in a place where I can have all of these fresh fruits available in the exact middle of winter.  In addition, I have a toasted corn tortilla with crunchy peanut butter spread on it.  And yes, I do eat the orange peel; I like both the taste and the texture.

    For dinner, I had a salad with the following ingredients:

  • green lettuce
  • carrots
  • green olives
  • cheese
  • red lettuce
  • celery
  • jalapeño
  • olive oil
  • tomato
  • broccoli
  • chicken
  • vinegar
  • A few days ago, I made three gallons of soup.  I have two gallons left.  Go here for the recipe (which is for only two gallons).  Tonight, though, I was just in the mood for raw, rather than cooked, vegetables.

    If I don’t have my regular servings of fruits and vegetables each day, I develop an intense craving for them long before bedtime.  I can’t wait until the next day to come so I can eat my favorite stuff and be satisfied.

    Feb. 1, 2009

    I went to a really fun Superbowl party today.  Even though my team didn’t win, I still had a good time.  There were tons of food and beverages.  The best part was that there were one or two TVs in virtually every room, including the restroom and the patio outside.  So it was virtually impossible to miss a play, or at least a replay.

    The main TV in the livingroom was big and had great resolution.  It could be viewed very clearly from all angles, which is an optical marvel.  (Since I love optics, such things fascinate me.)  It also was convenient because I could take photos of the screen off to the side without getting in anybody’s way, although the dimensions of every shot appear distorted.

    I enjoyed the 3-dimensional commercials at halftime, which were viewable with the cool red-blue glasses that were handed out to everybody.  Some of the party-goers, who knew that I was an optometric physician, asked me to explain why the images looked 3D with the glasses.  I had to refresh my memory about the optics of how that works.

    There was enough healthful food there that I was eating almost constantly.  At one point, I think I stood in the kitchen chomping on raw vegetables and fruits (without the dips) for about 20 minutes, non-stop.  I even took a small bowl of veggies and fruits to munch on all the way home.  I never can get enough of that stuff.  I probably should have been a goat.  You can view my Superbowl photos, or watch a 1½-minute slideshow, if you want.

    We are enjoying a nice Santa Ana condition here in Southern California.  At least, I certainly am.  It’s been like this for about 2 weeks.  I think this is like a record for the most days in the 80s in January in So. CA.

    The warm winds blow in from the Mojave Desert, which is to the east of us, toward the Pacific Coast.  Not only are the temperatures perfect, but the smog gets blown out to sea.  Therefore, the air is relatively clear in all directions.

    Of course, I’d prefer that it would be even hotter.  As I recall, the last time it was, during winter, was almost 3 years ago (see the entry for Feb. 8, 2006).  You won’t see me complaining, though, since much of the nation has been in a “deep freeze.”

    Here’s a shout-out to all the seagulls who will have to breathe our smoggy air today.

    Jan. 28, 2009

    I’ve been asked why San Diego is my favorite city in the USA.  For one thing, all of my favorite things are here—including Thai and Japanese restaurants, coffee shop, radio station, gym, and grocery store.

    Besides that, I believe that San Diego has the best year-round climate of any place in the country.  Like, for instance, there aren’t all that many locations that have nice flowers and plants, as well as temperatures in the 70s, in the middle of Winter.  To prove it, I took some photos at Balboa Park today.  View my Balboa Park photos, or watch a 1¼-minute slideshow.

    Jan. 20, 2009

    Barack H. Obama and Joseph R. Biden have become the 44th President and 47th Vice President, respectively, of the United States.  I will be praying for them.

    You can see a good broad view of it here: Inauguration.  You also can scroll in very close on people (like Obama, who is at the podium).  Put your (mouse) hand on the picture and move it around.  It may not work on some computers, though.

    Jan. 13, 2009

    Today, Paul Harvey, Jr., noted that 2008 had record-breaking cyclones, earthquakes, and floods.  It doesn’t surprise me in the least, considering that we now may be well over two years into the 70th Week.  I still have seen absolutely nothing yet negating the possibility that the European Neighbourhood Policy is the fulfillment of Daniel 9:27.

    My financial advisor keeps telling me that the stock market is going to turn around, and everything is going to be OK.  I’m not holding my breath.

    Jan. 10, 2009

    Tonight is a full moon.  It will appear to be the largest moon, as viewed from the earth, in 2009.  Actually, the full moon on December 12, 2008, when it was at its perigee (closest point to the earth), subtended the largest visual angle, as observed from earth, than any full moon since 1993 (and until 2016).

    I took a few photos, as the moon was rising, and then later when it was higher in the sky.  I also used various camera settings.


    25-second slideshow

    Although the moon looks larger to the naked eye when it is closer to the horizon than when it is up high, that is an illusion.  Our brains only think it is larger.

    Jan. 9, 2009

    A couple of friends told me today that the Illinois Governor, Rob Blagojevich, has been booted out of office.  That isn’t true, though.  He has been impeached by the IL House of Representatives, but “impeachment” does not mean removal from office.

    Presidents Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were impeached by the U.S. House of Reps, but they both remained in office.  That is because there were not enough votes in the U.S. Senate to convict them of their impeachable offenses.

    In Illinois, the Senate conviction trial of Blagojevich will begin January 26.  Today, the governor gave what I would consider to be a supremely absurd speech about how the House had impeached him because of all the wonderful things he had done for the people of his state, with which they had disagreed.  His speech was very bizarre; I kept expecting the theme from the “Twilight Zone” to start playing in the background.

    In reality, Blago was impeached due to mounting evidence of scandalous abuses of power.  Of course, Blago wasn’t really defending himself today against the accusations; he was talking to the Illinois voters, hoping that they possibly might have some positive influence on their state senators, who will be giving him a “thumbs up or down” vote in a few weeks.  I suspect that the majority of voters want him out.

    Nevertheless, I do believe that Blago’s appointment of Roland Burris, to replace Barack Obama in the U.S. Senate, was legal and valid.  The IL Supreme Court voted that the IL Secretary of State, Jesse White, did not have to sign the paperwork for him to be able to take that seat in Washington, D.C.  Yet, Harry Reid, head of the Senate, keeps insisting that Burris cannot be seated without White’s signature.  What a mucky quagmire.

    In addition, President-elect Obama, who initially stated that Burris should not be his replacement (because Blago is enshrouded in fraud and corruption charges), recently has encouraged Reid to change his mind and to allow Burris to be seated in the Senate.  If the Senate cannot solve a SIMPLE legal problem like this, how in the world do they expect to make ANY progress at all in pulling the USA out of its deepest recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s?  Realistically, I do not believe they will be able to do so.

    Jan. 1, 2009

    All this year, I will keep a 2009 calendar taped up on the wall nearby for quick and easy reference of future and past dates.  It’s not a calendar that I use to write on to remind me of things I need to do; I use my data bank watch for that.

    I’ve made the calendar for a few friends, and most of them like using it the way I do.  I also like to keep track of the monthly phases of the moon.  Plus the back of the calendar has a list of holidays and observances for 2009.

    If you would like one for yourself, click on each image below and print out the two pages on either side of one piece of paper.  Just change my name, at the top of the calendar page, to your name before you print it.  (The thin gray lines will not show up when you print the pages).


    Also, if you have an interest in reading the Bible from Genesis to Revelation during 2009, go to my Dec. 31, 2007 entry for more information, including a Chronological List of Bible Passages list to check off as you read.  If you haven’t read the whole Bible before, now would be a good time.  I re-read it again in 2008, along with a friend who posted a Bible Study at his website.
