I'm reading the article on AoM about "Rediscovering the Barber Shop", and as much as I like that idea, I have a few concerns. The article, specifically the section on "Why Every Man Should Go to a…Continue
"As someone who's poor enough to be envious of the situation the "challenge" puts the user in, I find it to be partially inaccurate, and wholly exploitative. I understand that these people are trying to "help", but it mostly…"
"I have one of those (though the inner filter part broke due to my own clumsiness) and LOVE it. The Golden Lotus one was the best so far. Absolutely delicious. I can go look at mine and find the manufacturers website if you want."
"Look at (if you have them nearby) Bed Bath & Beyond for the Flowering Tea gift set. Other wise look online for it. It is a simple glass pot with no decoration to get in the way and a bunch of teas that are made of whole leaves and are tied…"
Not sure if you want a ceramic type teapot or something else. We have a tetsubin and love it. Nothing says manly like cast iron, IMO. :) They are not cheap but are so worth every penny you spend. …"
"I have a strange viewpoint on "right."
While I believe that right is always right, that there are universal rights and wrongs, and they can be (mostly) objectively measured, I do believe that each individual situation merits a…"
"As silly as I find the emo haircuts, the accusations against them are similar in scope (though the price is far more extreme) to the ones goth kids had in the Bible Belt. As much as I may hate the style, I'm gonna side with this being wrong."
12Not that I have now attained [this ideal], or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me His own.
13I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead,
14I press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward.
There is a New year Ahead. It is an open page for you to write the rest of your Life.
Defeated People look at what they are going through...Sucessful people look at where they are going to. Don't let the hurts, and failures of the past determine your future. The only person who determines your future is yourself.
Each morning is a new day. Do not let what has happened to you in the Past determine the rest of your life. God's mercy is renewed every morning...I have had many failures in life but I have never been a failure. You are only a failure when you Quit, throw in the towel and admit defeat.
YOU ARE SOMEBODY IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD. NO MORE VICTIMS, FORGET IT AND LET IT GO! NOW WALK INTO THE NEW DAY...GOD BLESS YOU....My young friend I was submitting this to you to see if something like this would be acceptable for gentlemen ecumenists...It is meant to encourage not cause confussion...which is the last thing I should want to do...Dan
Hello Mitchell. Welcome to AoM. Also, thought I'd also give you a friendly invite to check out my new group The Great Debate. It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also the most active group on AoM at the moment. In any case, great to have you aboard.
"When I was getting my engineering degree I would take yoga or weight lifting courses so that I could not excuse my way out of doing them. I would go to bed early and get up at 3 when the area was quite after a good nights rest. A cup of…"
"The press is more protective of their own than that. The administration didn't go after Hannity (which they'd write off) ... they criminally investigated a Washington correspondent for reporting a story. That'll…"
"I don't mind more sexuality and foul language - not very big problems, in the grand scheme of things (and yes, this is speaking as the parent of a young child). They need to decrease the violence though. "
"Here's the advice my WWII vet grandfather gave me: Keep your eyes open, your mouth shut, and NEVER volunteer for anything.
My addition is to resist the temptation to get involved in the "us vs them" attitude I see too many…"
