Corinthians 7:32-35

"I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs—how he can please the Lord. But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world—how he can please his wife and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—how she can please her husband. I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord."

jpr:easy enough to say!

Chinese Joke

A Chinese couple had a new baby. The nurse brings them over a lovely, healthy, bouncy, black baby boy. "Congratulations," says the nurse to the new parents. "What will you name the baby?" The puzzled father looks at his new child and says "I think we will name him "Sum Ting Wong."

What did 5 China men say when they came out of a janitor's closet?

What do you call a one-eyed Chinese man?
See One Ting

China's one child policy

The Chinese government refers to it under the official translation of family planning policy. It officially restricts married, urban couples to having only one child, while allowing exemptions for several cases, including rural couples, ethnic minorities, and parents without any siblings themselves. A spokesperson of the Committee on the One-Child Policy has said that approximately 35.9% of China's population is currently subject to the one-child restriction.The Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau are completely exempt from the policy. Also exempt from this law are foreigners living in China.

new year greeting

May Your Hair, Your Teeth,
Your Face-Lift, Your Abs And
Your Stocks Not Fall;
And May Your Blood Pressure,
Your Triglycerides,
Your Cholesterol,
Your White Blood Count And
Your Mortgage Interest Not Rise.

new years resolutions

I will try to figure out why I *really* need nine e-mail addresses.

I will stop sending e-mails to my spouse.

I resolve to work with neglected children -- my own.

I will read the manual... just as soon as I can find it.

I will not ring the stewardess button on airplanes just to get her phone number.

I will answer my snail mail with the same enthusiasm with which I answer my e-mail.

"Faith lifts the staggering soul on one side.
Hope supports it on the other side.
Experience says it must be and
Love says let it be."
