I'm So Mad I Could Spit Nails
Mood:  irritated
Topic: General

Hi All,

This has not been a good day. As you will read in the following email, someone hijacked my email address book, sent false emails to all of my contacts and then erased all of my email addresses. It has taken hours to try to reconstruct my email address book and I know I have forgotten someone (or two or three or dozen). That is why I am sending this to my facebook friends and posting it here on my blog. So many of you overlap that I am hoping that I hit everyone.

For those of you who just stop by and read my blog from time to time but aren't on my email list, let this be a warning to you. Never browse the internet on an unsecured network. If you would like to be put on our email list and be the first to read our prayer letters and get updates on when I write new entries to my blog, then please send me your email address to the email listed below. 

Again, I'm sorry if this has caused an inconvenience. Please forgive me. Here is the email that explains all of the fuss.

Dear Friends and Family,

Someone recently wrote to ask if we had sent the following email:

Dear friend:
I would like to introduce you a corporation which mainly sell electronic products.Now the company is doing sales promotion,and all the products are sold nearly at its cost price.What's more,they provide their customers the best service and products which is good in qulity and low in price.It is a good chance for shopping,so improve the shining hour.Its now or never! Regards!
The web address: www.sulecn.com

Please delete this email immediately. I don't believe that it contains a virus, but at any rate it was sent under false pretenses. I am very sorry for this. Somehow, someone has gotten my email list and sent it to all of my friends, family and acquaintances that are on my list. They then deleted my entire address book, so I have had to reconstruct it from previous emails. It has taken hours and I know I have missed some people. I'm so angry I could spit nails. We are visiting my sister, nephew, and mother in NJ and I connected to an unsecured network. I have learned my lesson, I will never do that again.

From here on, we will make sure that we do not have everyone's names and emails listed when we send an email. Someone recently told us how to do that, and we are now glad that they did. Also, we will always include our email address after my name, and a link to my blog. If any email from us does not contain these things, please check with us before you open it. There may be a time that we forget to include all of those things, but we will endeavor to include all of that info so that you will know that it is authentic. I am going to also try to report this violation to yahoo to see if anything can be done, but I doubt it can. Again, I am very sorry.

My Humble Opinion on a Very Controversial Subject
Topic: Politics

I'm sure most of you, if you don't know me personally, have figured out that I am a Christian and I am fairly conservative politically. Most of you also know, if you have been coming here for any length of time, that the purpose of this blog is not political but to strengthen the family. Sometimes, however, the two cannot be seperated and I feel that this is one of those times.

Before I go any further, let me tell you that I am for stem cell research - just not research using embryos - discarded from fertility clinics or aborted and especially those created only for the purpose of research to be created and then killed. I feel that life begins at conception and should be valued from the moment that the first cell splits to make two. 

I feel, in my limited reading on the subject, that umbilical cord blood and other stem cell sources are just as valuable and can be used just as effectively without the need to create life and then destroy it. 

I will say no more on the subject. I have many friends who have Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease and other things that stem cell research could help in the future. Perhaps some of the problems that my own children have can be helped by this type of research in the future. I only pray that this experimentation can be done in an ethical way.

With all of that said, I would like to direct you to a link from BBC News on the development of synthetical blood using stem cell research. I found the side bar "Making Fake Blood from Embryos" most compelling as it states that the "Embryo created from IVF is tested for O-negative blood group, then allowed to develop for several days until stem cells can be extracted". Of course we know that when the stem cell is extracted, the embryo is destroyed. Just press on any of the mentions of BBC News in this blog entry to connect with the article.

Big Vision Forum Sale

Now, I haven't said anything about Vision Forum in ages - you know - that company that I used to mention in almost every one of my posts. I realized that I was thumping this company a little too much, and decided to lay off for a little while. But, this is one of my favorite organizations, and they are having a huge, spring, sale going on so I thought I would bring them up again. I promise, though, that I won't overdue it. Have I mentioned that they are one of my favorite companies...just wondered.
