HOUSTON (AP) — A Central Texas town that the mayor says is two weeks away from running out of water has been given emergency approval to run three miles of pipeline through a state park to draw water from a rock quarry, town and state officials said Tuesday.

Groesbeck Mayor Jackie Livingston said the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department told town officials at a City Council meeting late Monday they could run the line through Fort Parker State Park. But she said construction on the… Continue

The ocean

As you know I am in virginia beach for thanksgiving. But, did you know that the atlantic ocean is the second largest of the world's oceans. Did you know that the sound of the ocean is soothing. Did you know that it looks grey when it is raining. It is also the youngest ocean. 

  • The name 'Atlantic' is derived from the legendary island of 'Atlantis', as described by Plato - one of the ancient writers.
  • Atlantic Ocean…

My very best thanksgiving

The answer to bob's question is 1619. I used to have a photographic memory but due to medical conditions it is now very much foggy and full of holes. So, I cannot remember very many thanksgivings. I do remember the first time we went to virginia beach as a family. I was around 10. We have gone almost every year since except for two years when I lived in Tennessee so, that is a long time. I don't remember the thanksgivings themselves but, I remember the sound of the ocean, the first time I…

If everyone looked out for the person next to them the world would be a better place, but human beings are rash, cruel, and very much judgmental  in nature.  I think sacrifice is the key to salvation.

Occupy movement

It seems to me to be that the occupy movement is growing closer and closer to violence. It also looks that they are looking for violence. But, I firmly believe that violence solves nothing despite our violent history. If you truly look at history the lasting changes came through those individuals who used peaceful means. Those changes that came through violence faded away eventually.

The details and traits that distinguish one entity from another. We all carry common traits and details. The combination of them makes us who we are. Each individual is different. We are shaped by our experiences and the gifts God has given us. We each grow and change as time goes by. We are influenced as individuals by those around us and the things we hear, see and read. Even if something or someone does not change an individual right now it will have an impact on that individual either in…

Impending starvation in the United States

Thank you to Mr. Wickstrom for this well written article.

The Coming Starvation In America

By James P. Wickstrom


The government of the United States, by Law was to always maintain a three year mixed- grain survival storage for every man, woman, and child in the United States.

The Law of Attraction

I was first introduced to the law of attraction while listening to Coast to Coast am, one of many new things Gov had introduced me to. The idea is simple: tell the universe what you want and the universe will give it to you. The catch is that universe only heard the object of your desires, not whether you are wishing for them or against them. For example, if you are constantly thinking about what you don't want, the universe will give it to you because it manifests the object (what you don't… Continue

Why Is China Building These Gigantic Structures In the Middle of the Desert? (Update 2)

This is crazy. New photos have appeared in Google Maps showing unidentified titanic structures in the middle of the Chinese desert. The first one is an intricate network of what appears to be huge metallic stripes. Is this a military experiment?

Update: readers are finding more weird stuff.

They seem to be wide lines drawn with some white material. Or maybe the dust have been dug by machinery.

It's located in Dunhuang, Jiuquan, Gansu, north of the Shule River,… Continue

Obama Care

At the heart of this debate is wether congress is being unconstitutional on requiring everyone to be insured by 2014. Dustin I want you to weigh in on this being the expert on constitutionalism. Obama care is very important as it will affect everyone. It is supposed to make insurance more accessible and affordable. I say I hope it does but, hopefully it will actually be affordable. MY idea of affordable would be nice. I have several questions about Obama care. Who decides who can afford it.…

America to Rebrand Itself

By Amanda Geronikos

Fri, 11 Nov 2011 20:40:55 GMT

America: Land of the free, home of the brave… and ‘The United States of Awesome Possibilities.'

No, really. 'The United States of Awesome Possibilities' is actually our country's new slogan. If America lacks in its ability to attract tourists, it certainly won’t for much longer. At least that’s the hope of The Corporation for Travel Promotion (CTP). The group wants foreign travelers to see just how ‘awesome’ America is, and…
