When is Daylight Savings? and 10 Things To Do With that Extra Hour

Chris Harrison twittered about a site called When is Daylight Savings? I thought I would pass along the info since we all forget at some time about when the new daylight savings time is. (In case you don’t want to go the site it is this Sun Nov. 2nd, 2008 at 3am in the morning you set your clock back to 2am). Fall back spring forward is an easy way to remember how to set the clock.

Just for fun here a few things to do with your extra hour this year or just because:

  1. Check the batteries in your smoke detectors or replace them
  2. Read about daylight savings Seize the Daylight: The Curious and Contentious Story of Daylight Saving Time or Daylight saving time – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  3. Replace a regular light bulb with a new CFL light bulb
  4. Make special time with that special someone
  5. Maybe backup your computer data with mozy or jungle disk
  6. Suggest something for me to write about (in the sidebar or here)
  7. Catch up on google reader, unread blog list or a good book (reading is good for the brain!)
  8. Put the summer clothes away and pull out that winter jacket. It’s cold out there! (currently 39 degrees here)
  9. Learn about GTD and get the book
  10. Prepare a Christmas wishlist so your family will have something to get you

And finally have a good nights sleep!

Free iPod: Almost There!

Free iPodSo I now have 4 referrals of the 5 total needed to get a free 30GB black video iPod. I am SOOOOOO close I can smell it. Most of the referrals I have gotten were ones that bought ink for around $30. I have gotten the free ink options a couple of times and it works great on my printers. Click on the image to see how close I am and then click on the link below to sign up to freeipods.com. Thanks!

Mac Musings

mac g5
Check out MacMusings for alot of great articles in helping figure out which Mac to buy. My friend Carol is looking into buying a new Mac and is looking at the slightly older Dual 2.0Ghz G5 machines. They look so awesome and are really fast machines. She uses it for video editing and DVD authoring. This will be a big step up from her Dual 450Mhz G4! I hope she is able to get it sooner than later 🙂

Some people think that faith and reason are incompatible.

Enclosed is today’s empowering quote from Dorsey Marshall. The thought he gave today hit right on with some of the struggles I’ve had within myself and my friends. Read on….

Some people think that faith and reason are incompatible. They believe that
you have to check your intellect at the church door, but they’re wrong. The
truth of God’s Word will stand up to the most rigorous scrutiny. You don’t
have to lay aside your questions to begin a relationship with God. In fact,
He extends us an open invitation to explore His truth and His ways. In
Isaiah 1:18 He says, “Come now, and let us ‘reason’ together.” As the
author C.S. Lewis once wrote: “Anyone who endeavors to be a Christian will
soon find his intelligence being sharpened.” Have you fallen for the myth
that faith in God isn’t reasonable? Believing for the impossible or
“unreasonable” is the most exciting a d reasonable adventure you could
encounter! Dorsey Marshall here and that’s The Success Minute!
I may never see you, hear you, meet you, or know you. However… I pray for
you each day.
Humbly in Christ’s love and grace,
I call YOU blessed!
Pastor Dorsey
