This is amazing! Over the weekend a group of villagers captured a massive 21ft saltwater crocodile after a three-week hunt. The croc is suspected to have killed a number of fisherman in MANILA, Philippines. It took over 100 people to pull it out of the creek where they trapped it. Once they got it up on the ground and drug to a clearing, the 2,370 croc was then lifted by a crane into the back of a truck.
The news of this croc is amazing enough, but what makes this story truly great is the fact that they kept this croc alive! That’s right, alive! They plan to take this killer croc who terrorized their area and make it an attraction for all to see, turning fear into excitement. The Mayor of the town, Edwin Cox Elorde, says that they plan on turning this “from a threat into an asset!” And indeed he will!
This raises another question… are dinosaurs really extinct? I mean there are not T-Rexs roaming around everywhere (thank God) and certainly there are no longer Brontosaurus’ in zoos for viewing. Would one not agree that there are dinosaurs still living? Of course alligators and crocodiles immediately come to mind when reading this article. But what about the Komodo Dragon, or even our modern-day Rhinos (who although is not a reptile could be compared to that of a Triceratops). There are others such as the Snapping Turtles and the Galapagos Giant Tortoise. Nonetheless, being true to the definition of the term dinosaur (“giant lizard”) I will concede apart from the handful of illustrations I just gave, my case is a weak one. However, it would give some validity to the fact that the earth is not as old as many think it is!
I can’t believe that they published this… I am sure that the ACLU is suing a half a dozen people over this…! Nonetheless, I am not sure that this is the way to educate our children on the events of 9/11. It is just a coloring book, so one might make the argument that this is more of a recreational book. I would say, REALLY?? I mean, do we really want to sensationalize this events? I would not want my child coloring a scene from the beaches of Normandy!

When not to try homeschooling
- If both husband and wife are not in agreement that home education is right for their children, it is best not to proceed. Keep praying!
- If the parent who will do most of the teaching must have a regular full-time job outside the home, it will be extremely difficult to devote the time necessary to home education and general supervision.
- If the parent has difficulty maintaining discipline, it may be difficult to have an effective home education program.
- If you are not committed to the task of teaching, you will not reap the rewards of home education. Unlike a hobby, the education of your children demands a steady “day-in-day-out” commitment. Avoid the “experiment” mentality.
- Consider your motivation. You want to remove your child from a bad situation, but if you are not answering the call of the Lord to teach your children, you will find it difficult to be successful. Running away from ordinary challenges might teach your child the wrong lesson.

I came across this article and thought I would share it with you all… It is very pro-Texas to say the least and is written in lieu of Rick Perry’s announcement. I know nothing of the author, but a trustworthy source linked it.
This speech is nothing less than hypocritical and at best, a double standard . Either way, no one can escape the irony!
