Micro-wave Popcorn.

Tom's Journal.

Lord's Prayer

By a 15-year-old school kid who got an A+ for this entry
The Lord's Prayer is not allowed in most  
U.S. Public schools any more.   
A kid in Minnesota, wrote the following 
Now I sit me down in school  
Where praying is against the rule  
For this great nation under God  
Finds mention of Him very odd.  
If scripture now the class recites,  
It violates the Bill of Rights.  
And anytime my head I bow  
Becomes a Federal matter now.  
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,  
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene..  
The law is specific, the law is precise.  
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.  
For praying in a public hall  
Might offend someone with no faith at all..  
In silence alone we must meditate,  
God's name is prohibited by the State..

We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,  
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks...  
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.  
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.  
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,  
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.  
It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong,  
We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong..  
We can get our condoms and birth controls,  
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles...  
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,  
No word of God must reach this crowd.  
It's scary here I must confess,  
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.  
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:  
Should I be shot; My soul please take!  

Hi  Friends,
    You know,  I NEVER did like even the smell of micro-wave popcorn, and the ladies always made fun of me for that simple reason.... duh.   But I love the old fashioned way my Mom used to pop corn in a kettle, and then salt and butter it, with real WISCONSIN butter !  You just pour a little oil in the bottom of the kettle and add the corn kernels, and pretty soon I will make some, like tomorrow.    I always heard that the old style of popcorn was healthy for us.   If it wasn't so late right now I would fire up the stove and make some !  
     I have also heard that countries like Russia forbid micro-waves, and for good reason, perhaps,  but I have and use one for convenience and when someone comes over.   I don't drink coffee or tea, but I always keep some here.    I will never drink Diet Coke,  but I keep a few bottles of it in my Frig., too.     I like to be a good host, even if research say that somethings are not so good for us.   The old song,  "In heaven there is no beer --- that's why we drink it here..." might be true.   But if we are to dine at the same table as the Lord when we get to heaven,  the Bible says that we shall drink SOME wine and eat SOMETHING, and whom am I to question all of that, if it's in God's Word, the KJV Bible ??   I do not consider myself a radical or a fanatic,  but the Bible has always been a great source of encouragement  and strength for me, and I have also given many away from my own money, and never felt like it wasn't worth it.   But then, how could any man or woman stand before the Lord and explain why they could NEVER find any time in their life to read His Bible !     And I just happen to be a History Buff, and the Bible is pure History, and so exciting !   
      Well,  I just hated Math in school [long story..], but I had to study it and pass the class to graduate, and I even studied college Math, and passed !  Whoop de doo !   I also passed the Securities Federal Exam for Investments, considered one of the hardest in the nation, compared on the same level as a Real Estate exam, and passed.  Now that really made me feel good inside, so no one could ever call me stupid after that...  LOL !   But, on the other hand, perhaps I AM stupid for having the poor judgment to allow some women mercenaries pick me clean of my finances and then kick me out of their house.... Ha!   They will have to face the Lord, too.   Now,  if ladies like that don't make it to heaven for some odd reason, and I do, who is the goof ball ?   But there is more to it than that.  I love to explain the "why's and wherefore's" in my blog posts, and I love teaching people and also making them feel good about themselves.    There is enough fault to go around, and I have always admitted that I am far from perfect.   Let's be kind to one another, for a change, before the SHTF.   Jesus said, "there will be anxiety enough for tomorrow, so why worry today ?"  

I am going to take my own advice and relax more after this day is over.    Most things are going according to plan, anyway.  So why sweat the small stuff ?


Microwave popcorn gives off a toxic, lung-damaging gas when cooked

Microwave popcorn

(NaturalNews) You might be reassured to learn that the buttery flavor in microwave popcorn typically comes from a chemical actually found in butter, but you shouldn't be. This chemical, called diacetyl, is so toxic that it commonly destroys the lungs of workers in microwave popcorn factories, afflicting them with the crippling and irreversible disease known as bronchiolitis obliterans.

Bronchiolitis obliterans is so rare outside of this context that it has become more commonly known as "popcorn lung," after the primary cause of the disease.

Regulators and health professionals have known of this risk for decades but always assumed that it would only affect people breathing in especially high concentrations in factory settings. Then, in 2007, a man who regularly ate two bags of microwave popcorn every day was diagnosed with popcorn lung, proving that diacetyl enters the air and lungs when microwave popcorn is cooked.

Anxious to reassure consumers, most microwave popcorn companies phased out diacetyl -- only to replace it with chemicals that have the exact same effects.
