agree with the above!

2 objective realities.

  • God is real! (Heaven and hell too)
  • God is not real! (No heaven and hell)

2 subjective decisions.

  • You believe in God!
  • You do not believe in God!

4 scenarios.

  • If God is real, the man who believes in God will be rewarded in Heaven
  • If God is not real, the man who believes in God has not lost anything.
  • If God is real, the man who does not believe in God is in trouble.
  • If God is not real, the man who does not believe in God has won nothing.

Agree with everything, and have to add for the sake of my pet peeve-ness, they're Wigeons (no d in there).

Actually, if you look hard enough, you'll find Wigeon spelled Widgeon. Basically, it depends on how old your source is, and how they were feeling that day (or how many d's they had in the shop :P ).

Agree with the above. We see lots of Carolina Wrens at our house here in north central Ohio. :)

EDIT: In response to BarnSwallow:

Thanks! I don't even see them every year; but this year they nested somewhere on the property and I got lots of great looks when the fledglings/juveniles were out bumbling around. :) Would be really cool to have one overwinter.

Nice pics, Cobal!
