Iacta alea est



   Iacta alea est posted on Main Page The Lobby  Remember the months immediately post 9/11? In November NYC had a mayoral election. Bloomberg was elected to succeed Giuliani. But Guiliani was kept on for months past Bloomerg's inauguaration date in order to insure clean-up and other efforts of recovery from the attack maintained continuity from the top. Well, I've got a gnawing feeling that a "national crisis" is going to be ginned up to extend the life of the present govt. I see the seeds being sown.....when the govt. fears the people, that's liberty....when the people fear the govt., that's tyranny.......

   Iacta alea est posted on Main Page The Lobby  Any website that forces me to view a particular ad just makes me navigate away from it as fast as I can. The mother site is running one of these now for something called "Mobility as a service"....this is more than a pet peeve

   Lonestar Jack  I have started using Whitehat.com Aviator browser and it really speeds up Drudge and any heavy ad sites.
Good to read up on the White Hat company and if you like what they say you can download their free browser and be assured that they do not send your patterns to any ad agencies.

These hosting companies make their money by the "pay per click" method where the Ad Company is billed based on the number of clicks and subsequent visits to their sites. A status bar is at the bottom on many browsers where you can see flashing messages where you can watch the traffic of messages being relayed to various companies, but this can be turned off by the browser preferences.

Notice how the real estate for content has shrunk on the right side to allow for more ads.

One of the other culprits is the increasing usage of Javascript to animate ads, "cutify" sites and control the passing of your data.

   Iacta alea est posted on Faith  Medically, all Mom's doctors tell her she's doing well especially in light of what has transpired since last August. But she maintains a spirit of self-defeatism insisting there hasn't been improvement. May I ask you prayer warriors to pray the Holy Spirit to touch Mom's spirit and (to use the Biblical word ) "quicken" it?

   MeiDei  Continuing on .. with prayer for you too - as you know, being a caretaker isn't a job for the weak. May your mom wake up one day soon with an attitude of gratitude; find a way to make her laugh, works at our house.

   Iacta alea est posted on Faith  I would just like to say that many of us are facing or going thru difficult times regarding the health of a loved one or loved ones. But (at least for me ) it is a blessed and joy giving thing that we come together here and ask for, or offer up, or receive prayers for our loved ones. Speaking only for myself, I am genuinely uplifted by all of this. It is true nourishment. And I again declare my undying gratitude to all of you, and to our Lord. You all are the living embodiment of the scripture (from James I believe ) that "the prayers of a righteous man availeth much." We have been given each other as gifts from our God, and I am humbled by the riches that are all of you.

   BirdsNest  At the tracks Saturday many people stopped by and asked after Hagar. All said they would add him to their prayer list and many said they had prayed for him every day. One lovely gentleman and his daughter-in-law held my hands and prayed for Hagar. One gentleman told me to offer it up to God. Amazing people we have come to know.
