‘I Stand With Phil’ Petition Links Restored on Twitter

See? We don’t have to take their shit. We can shove it right back at them. This could get to be “habit forming.” Ou rah! — jtl, 419

By Michael Mullins via  

“I stand with Phil” petition links have been restored on Twitter after supporters of the “Duck Dynasty” patriarch, Phil Robertson, claimed the social media site purposely blocked the website for political reasons.

Earlier in the week, Twitter users attempting to post links to the “I stand with Phil” petition website were prevented from doing so, receiving messages that the content they were posting contained malware or that the site was spam.

“Eastern Black Swallowtail Caterpillar” (By: Michele Babcock-Nice)

soon to be butterflies!


In our garden this week, we noticed several Eastern Black Swallowtail caterpillars (Papilio polyxenes).  They are beautiful!  I counted one dozen of them feeding on the parsley plants in our garden.  And, with one dozen of them eating those plants, their food supply is diminishing quickly!

Spring has sprung, and Easter is again upon us!  There is much to be thankful for in celebrating another Easter – Christ’s ultimate sacrifice in giving his life for us, dying a horrible death beyond words and resurrecting his spirit for us.  Jesus is the God who continually forgives our sins and is our ultimate savior, unable to be replaced by anyone or anything.  And, though there are many things in our world by which we may attempt to replace our Creator, what it all comes down to in the end is that God is the ‘be all and the end all,’ the first and the last, the alpha and the omega. 

So, while many of us are spending additional time at church during this Easter season, reflecting, praying, and meditating on Jesus and his life, death, and resurrection, we must always remember that we are all His children.  With…

Tablets vs Laptop Computers

Many personal computers are now connected to the Internet and to local area networks, facilitating the spread of malicious code. Today’s computer viruses may also take advantage of network services such as the World Wide Web, e-mail, and file sharing systems to spread, blurring the line between viruses and worms.

An e-mail virus travels as an attachment to e-mail messages, and usually replicates itself by automatically mailing itself to dozens of people in the victim’s e-mail address book.

Following are the Symptoms of a computer virus
