Drink plenty of fluids and avoid watching TV...

My apologies for being MIA this week. My household decided to group participate in a bout of the flu, non-swine variety, starting last weekend. The teenager missed out on all the fever-filled fun this week because she is at the beach with a friend over her fall break...lucky her.

Next week I'll be back on the Wednesday guest post schedule sandwiched in between a couple of my own. Did it confuse or just make you sick that President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize? Try being delusional and anguished already when you hear the about piling on! I'll have a take on that come Monday.

Many of you who don't live in my area have sent messages and emails about my post last Friday and what happened at the high school football game where students and family protested the ACLU. The event was...well...uneventful from a controversial point of view and thus didn't generate media attention. There was a good article from the local newspaper just prior to the game. Be sure to check out some of the comments linked to the article. Some real boneheads decide to weigh in and sound like idiots.

For you Facebook types, there's a group formed in support of the prayer cause. The link should get you there.

Hope the flu bug misses you this year....and by the way...I got my flu shot just last week. Doh!

God bless.

You just convinced me not to get a flu shot. I have heard this happens when you get one. My daughter got one and she has been sick with the flu. Figures doesn't it?

I couldn't get the local news article for some reason. Perhaps the ACLU protested it.

As far as Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize, it does not surprise me. I hear Al Gore won one for a slide presentation on Global Warming over a Dutch lady trying to save children from the Nazis during WW2. What has he done to get that award? Nothing at all. Next some organization is going to award him the supreme ruller of the world at this rate.

I did get to see the article on Facebook. I winder if other cities would be interested in doing this at the local football games just to peve the ACLU. Nothing like a grass roots campaign to dis that bunch.

in my home town in Florida the graduating class at a local high school in protest of the ACLU said the Lords prayer during the ceremonies. It seemed the ACLU was suing the principal and the school board for allowing prayer at an off school site awards banquet.

I'm glad you all are feeling better! Hunter was sick all last weekend with the swine flu! Thankfully it was cought early and it didn't last long!

Glad you're back! We missed you.
We don't believe in flu shots or vaccinations either. You have better odds of avoiding it altogether in our modern sanitary world than having it actually injected into your arm (or elsewhere)no matter how weakened.

Glad you're back! Without you, the Internet was like I-90 at 6 o'clock on Christmas morning.

I've never had a flu shot. But I did drink the water in Mexico once.

The ACLU, Acorn, the Nobel Peace Prize-- I wonder why Christians can't get mobilized like that.

I need to apologize-- I wrote a blog about the Obama and the NPP before I knew you were going to do it. Now everyone is going to think that I want to be like you-- which, hey brother, isn't a bad thing.

Peace and healing to you, and yours.

Glad you and yours are feeling better.

Who knows about the Friday thing; maybe more people were influenced than was recognized. I do find it interesting however, that a peaceful appropriate statement making event of Christians is ignored. If it had been inappropriate the chance are higher that the media would have picked up on it. Or if it had been a liberal protest, chances would have been higher of obtaining media attention. I don't mean to complain, but rather to point out what seems obvious to me.

Man, flu is awesome. Well, flu thinks it's awesome. I beg to differ.

I think I'm going to nominate myself for the Nobel prize. You want to campaign for me?
