And My Netflix Crush Ends

My queue was dwindling to single digits so I switched the plan to the one dvd at a time and unlimited streaming. And now they’re going to split that plan up to charge extra. Well that sucks. Especially since I don’t have a movie in my queue at the moment that even allows streaming. Looks like I’m going to settle for Plan 2 or just dump Netflix.


Judging from the 8,000 comments on the Netflix blog, I’m not the only person upset about this.

The Statue of Liberty is a Demonic Idol

From RightWingWatch:

As we’ve been reporting on Right Wing Watch, Texas Governor Rick Perry is working a number of radical preachers to plan his upcoming Christians-only prayer rally. Perry’s partners in the event include extremists who believe that tolerance for homosexuality caused the September 11th attacks, Oprah Winfrey is the harbinger of the Antichrist, the deadly Japanese earthquake was caused by the country’s Emperor having sex with a demon, the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell caused bird deaths in Arkansas and violence should be considered to overthrow President Obama, among many other extreme beliefs.

One self-described ‘Apostle’ who has signed on as an official endorser to Perry’s The Response prayer rally is John Benefiel of the Heartland Apostolic Prayer Network, a group affiliated with the New Apostolic Reformation with ties to other The Response endorsers including Cindy Jacobs, C. Peter Wagner and Jay Swallow. In a sermon last August, Benefiel argued that America is under a curse from God because the country possesses monuments to pagan idols and that Americans needs to renounce those idols if not destroy them. Benefiel claims that the Statue of Liberty is in fact a “demonic idol” because it represents a “false goddess.”

Lunchtime Garden Thread

From Sarah:

Hi Chris,

This is my bell pepper plant. Yesterday I came home to see a tiny, tiny pepper forming!

From Tracy:

It’s dark and I don’t have a recent photo of my slab garden. Here is an old shot.
Lantana, Mint, Basil, garlic and Sweet potato vine shown in this photo. Currently growing in pots out of view of this photo – Carrey Mango, Buddha’s Hand, Miracle Fruit, Pineapple, Red Bell Pepper, some kind of Hot Pepper my mom gave me, Longan, Avocado, Sapote, Meyer Lemon and Key Lime on the same rootstock, Blackberry, Blueberry, Tea, and 3 kinds of fig.
I think it’s a blessing that I’m not allowed to plant in the ground. My yard would be overwhelmed.

From Miss Cellania:

This about half my garden. I took the picture to illustrate a story about canning cucumbers, so that what I focused on. It has tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers.

From Tracey:

We aren’t doing full veggies this year, but my kids decided they wanted a fairy garden. This is what we came up with. They (ages 7 & 5) chose every item here, including each and every rock around the garden.

Click on the pics for a larger pic. I’ll be doing another thread tomorrow for those who want to share a pic of their gardens and haven’t done so yet.
