Off-Topic / Towns or cities named after trees
« on: November 14, 2010, 02:25:17 pm »Message ID: 269226
 :cat:    wsnyyankees, I really enjoy things like your thread on towns named after foods.  I hope you don't mind if I add another aspect of how towns were named:  Towns or cities named after trees
When any of you find one, could you add at least a sentence about why it was named after a tree (if they list that info.)  Have fun!  Here's a couple I found:

Pine Apple in Wilcox County of Alabama
(In the 1800s in Wilcox Country of Alabama, there was a pine tree and an apple tree at the Old Stagecoach Stop.  It became known as the stop at the pine and the apple.  Eventually they just started calling it Pine Apple.)

Plum, Texas
Plum is located on Highway 71 about 8 miles West of La Grange. Plum is a farming community and was named after a wild plum tree grove that grew in the area.

Off-Topic / Has anyone on here ever been on Xolair (shots) for asthma?
« on: November 12, 2010, 08:13:33 pm »Message ID: 268533
 :cat:  I had my first 2 shots this week.  Since Xolair is relatively new, I was wondering that if any of you have been on it or are on it, and has it helped with your asthma?  Any anaphylactic reactions?  I have to carry an epi pen at all times just in case.  Thank you for any input!

Islamic Sharia Law in the USA
Is this any surprise that Obama would nominate someone like this?
Nonie Darwish talks to Fox News about The Obama Administration nominee for State Department Legal Advisor, Harold Koh, and his alleged statement that Islamic Sharia Law should apply in US Courts...

Definitely one of my concerns for our country...

Off-Topic / Who watches the Soaps on t.v.? Which are your favorites?

 :cat: "The Young and the Restless" is my favorite - I've been watching it since it first came out!  I also watched "Guiding Light" and "As the World Turns" when my children were very small through teenage years.  As a teenager, I used to watch "All My Children" and "Days of Our Lives."  Another favorite used to be "Sunset Beach" before they took it off.  I now keep up with just "The Young and the Restless."

Apparently it was only his union that did this.  Obama and his people say they had nothing to do with this, that they didn't even realize it had happened.

(My hubby has the same apparel from our son, who is also on this same ship.)

Debate & Discuss / Re: Islam case in New Jersey court
« on: October 20, 2010, 11:09:44 am »Message ID: 257045
"New Jersey Court Rules Spousal Abuse Acceptable Under Islam"

This judge held that the defendant could not be held responsible for the violent sexual assaults of his wife because he did not have the specific intent to sexually assault his wife, and because his actions were "consistent with his [religious] practices." In other words, the judge refused to issue the permanent restraining order because under Sharia law, this Muslim husband had a "right" to rape his wife.

 :cat:  There are several times that threads are started, and then when they are deep into debating, discussing, and even "arguing,"  the originator locks it, and/or keeps changing the name.  Good thing there are bookmarks!  That is not fair to people who are in the middle of deep topics.  So, no offense to the originator of this first thread, I am continuing it in this thread, in case anyone wants to continue their original discussions.

Quote from tammyrwa:
Amen!- I love it too!- that is a good one!- another score for Jesus, and none for the kingdom of darkness. Jesus is not my pal, he is my saviour- you cannot equate him to mere human terms, no matter how hard you try. The young man who died is in heaven- he has his assurance that he is in the presence of God- the ones who scoff have a one way ticket to another destination. People keep saying that God doesn't exist- they are right- a god doesn't exist- the one and only true and living God definetely does exist- look at you and me- look at the world and all that is in it- no one has a good explanation how all this came to being- they just continue to throw bombs at those who believe. Those "athiests" never came to the true knowledge of God- they had a form of godliness, they had head salvation instead of heart salvation, which is not salvation at all- they were never saved- how do you say you beleive in God one minute, and then say you don't- you never had a real heart change.

I agree with you, tammy.  He is my Savior, too. Jesus, in the New Testament, warned Christians of then, and to come, that we would be mocked and to stand strong.  I would like to add that there are several non-christians on here that are very nice, and open-minded when they debate.  They ask for clarifications, ask questions, give answers and opinions, and above all, they "listen" to Christians during these type of debates.  Just the way they are on these debates shows me that outside of these forums they must be some mighty fine people to know!

Off-Topic / How many of you like lighthouses and have you visited and/or climbed any?

 :cat:  How many of you like to study about lighthouses?  Have you visited and/or climbed any of them? 

I love lighthouses and have climbed the St. Augustine Lighthouse in Jacksonville, FL.  I collect the miniature lighthouses and have visited the Lighthouse Depot in Maine.  My great-great-great grandfather served as a lighthouse keeper at the Absecon Lighthouse in New Jersey.

Debate & Discuss / "Wellesley, Massachusetts Public School Students Learn to Pray to Allah"
« on: September 17, 2010, 07:51:45 am »Message ID: 238818
 :cat:   Wellesley, MaWellesley, Massachusetts Public School Students Learn to Pray to Allah

In late May of 2010, Wellesley, Massachusetts public middle school students took a field trip to the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center - a controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque run by the Muslim American Society of Bostn. There, the students were separated by gender and the boys were asked to join the Muslim adults in their prayer. Several of the public school boys took part.

This is an example of what's going on right here in America, deceitfully and steadily, until they totally try to take over.  It's already the 2nd most popular religion in France, and they are now trying to make laws to stop any more encroachment of this type of society "take-over."
I, for one, am extremely concerned and this is one reason why I have a problem with that mosque being built so close to the 9/11 tragedy.  These people are all involved together in this particular society.

 :cat:  Perhaps FC could at least list what type of viewing audience is sought for watching these type of videos.  I think members would be more understanding if they knew what type and that it didn't apply to them.  By the way, I really like the new updated look on the "Extra Offers" page, with the small pictures included with several of the offers!

 :cat:  I just want to say that since I have been on Fusion Cash, I enjoy coming to the Forum and getting involved with postings.  I'm a member of some similar sites but this site is the most interesting because of the Forum.  It's nice to be able to ask questions, find answers, and get to know other members.  Everyone looks out for the newbies and also help to encourage each other (whether it's personal or Fusion Cash related.)  Thanks, Fusion Cash and thanks, members for making this the best site for me!!!    :thumbsup:
