    As I sit here today thinking that I've been on this earth for 64 years. I can't help but ponder the question given to me by my wife last night. "If you could have any wish granted for your birthday, what would you wish for?"
    Let's see, 100 million dollars? Always shooting 100's in trap? Silver Sietz and lifetime supply of Remington Nitros? That we return to civil 2 Party politics void of name calling, hatred,etc? No I have the answer! For my BD I wish that the United States of America withdraws it's troops from Iraq and Afghanistan within the next 3 months. Be damn about the money saved. These wars are and have ruined thousands of lives in our Military not to mention civilians. Tonight as we celebrate and maybe I'll blow out that one big candle, I know what I'll wish for.

    The Bible actually warns of "World Peace".


    The Old Testament prophets (Isaiah, Daniel, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel) and the book of Revelation relay the visions and revelations given to God's messengers. Through them we are told that midway through the 7 years, a man will emerge bringing a deceiving, false hope to all that do not know Jesus Christ. He is called the anti-Christ and has been groomed and set in place by Satan. He will seduce many and will be thought to have all the answers for bringing about about "World Peace", thus becoming sole leader of a one-world government. He will be worshiped in place of God. At the end of the 7 years, Christ will return with His saints and through the battle of Armageddon, be victorious over Satan and the wicked of the earth.

    Just say'n......................

    Good for you Blade that is a wonderful wish as we get older priorities sure change I have the same feelings as you but you voiced it wonderfully. I will be 70 on the 24th and picked a Afermann for myself but would give it up in a heart beat for your wish to come true.

    Catpower.. God speed to your Son. A TS.com friend who I met last week at the Grand had me pegged at late 40's or early 50's. He asked me my secret. They are as follows:

    1 - Have fun and enjoy your life! (very important)
    2 - Raise your Children with love, respect and goodness. Then take pride in them when they grow up.
    3 - Give thanks to God for what you have and who you are.

    Gary--I wouldn't go and call me a scholar of anything. I remember bits and pieces of what i read and learned at one point..............Google can be your friend. :)


    Jim--Look at it this way, when you die you won't have far to go. :D

    The definition of peace is, "successfully protecting and defending yourself"
