Heads up fellas! EA is on Humble Bundle. You get all those games for PC and pay what you want. I recommend a penny over the average at least so you get the two extra. You would be surprised how fun Sims 3 can be. All the moneys go to some pretty good charities.

Just bought a PS3 a few weeks ago.  They have a special on the 1st 2 and I almost picked them up.  Need to finish The last of Us before I do.

Tim, I have been playing it a lot recently. I have to say, the early stages are a but boring, but once you figure out what can make what and all that, it becomes really really fun. What's your server address, I'll have to stop by sometime.

Classic Arcade Game Deaths.  Man I'm old.  I've played every single one of these.

Meeting a girl online: A good introduction message

The introduction message which you send to that cute girl online in which you attempt to cultivate a relationship with her is supposed to be the "attention getter", that determines whether she will message you back and continue the conversation, or just move on hoping to find a better man.I have been using online dating services for over a year now, as a second method in my arsenal NOT as a substitute to meeting a girl offline in the "real world". I have no problems talking to women and asking…See More

Black Hebrew Israelites and GOCC

Just now heard of them. Apparently one of their ministers went head to head against apologist James White. Smells like heresy. What is it and is it heretical?

Answered prayers

We frequently hear stories of how an extremely important need was "saved" after prayer, such asShe was near death but we prayed for her and she lived.Our marriage almost fell apart but we prayed and God saved our marriage.My job was nearing being taken from me but we prayed and God saved my job.But if we think of God as a Father, any parent does not always say, "Yes" when a request is made.  Sometimes a parent says, "No," and sometimes a parent says, "Not now," and sometimes a parent says,…See More
