Daily “Did You Know?” #5 (Deepest Places on Earth)

First of all, I’d like to apologize for the length of time between my last post and this one. I’ve only three reasons: I’ve been busy, I’ve been lazy, I was waiting so everyone had a chance to read my others without falling too far behind.

Daily “Did You Know?” #4 (The “401”)

As it gets closer, a rapid succession of loud thumps knock through the… Continue reading Daily “Did You Know?” #1 (The “Jake Brake”)

#PrayforParis

In light of the recent acts of evil on fellow brethren in Paris, France, as well as all of the attacks leading up to this tragedy, it has every person questioning: Why? Some may believe the answer comes from a religious aspect, believing it is God’s or a god’s way of testing our faith to… Continue reading #PrayforParis
