Let us continue today and always to pray for the protection of our unborn children.

"I'm a Believer" by The Monkeys

I was watching Fox & Friends this morning when they highlighted The Monkeys song called, "I'm a Believer"  and although I can't find evidence of this I believe they mentioned that on this date in 1967 was the first day this song topped the music charts.  It wasn't the release date, or if it was then Wikipedia has gotten their information wrong. I have always enjoyed listening to The Monkeys. Enjoy the music!

Cool Scene from LOTR - Legolas Versus the Oliphant

I always enjoy watching the Lord of The Rings. LOTR is one of my favorite movies of all-time.  A couple days ago was Orlando Bloom's birthday, who played Legolas in the LOTR so I found a pretty cool fight scene from Lord of the Rings to post.

From Biography.comBorn Diana Ellen Judd on January 11, 1946 in Ashland, Kentucky.

She worked several jobs to support her family, including being a nurse, secretary, waitress and clerk, before she and her daughter Wynonna formed The Judds. The group would go on to become country music's most successful mother-daughter duo. Her second daughter, Ashley Judd, became an acclaimed film actress.

Here is some music by The Judds, called Grandpa Tell Me About The Good Old Days

Edmund Burke on the Religious Animal

"Man is by his constitution a religious animal; atheism is against not only our reason, but our instincts." 
By: Edmund Burke

I found this quote by Edmund Burke on religion and the human person very interesting. I agree with it.  I think to reject religion is to reject a part of self.  I think that is why a majority of atheists have a lot of trouble with the concept of morality and the belief of moral absolutism. I think religion and God is embedded not only within each of our souls but that it is also in our DNA to be a religious people.
