Improve Your Sex Life With Goat Weed?

Posted in humor, odds and ends with tags , , , on July 16, 2010 by Tim R Wilson

Used for over 2,000 years in China, Yin Yang Huo, known here as Horny Goat Weed, has been used to improve energy and the sex lives of both men and women. The leaves of the plant contain a variety of flavonoids, one of which icarin, is believed to play a role in restoring sexual interest, boost erectile function, allay fatigue and alleviate menopausal discomfort. In the legend of Ying Yang Huo, the leaves were purportedly the food of the ying yang, a mythical beast which achieved 100 sexual climaxes a day! It has a honored place in traditional Chinese medicine naturally.

In the United States, goat weed has become somewhat of a phenomenon, and according to this article, science is beginning to back that claim. In a study by Dr. Steven Lamm and Gerald Secor Cousins, 25 healthy men and 13 men who used Viagra received doses of the product for 45 days, then 60 days. Results of the double blind study showed that daily use of the herb resulted in the sexual enhancement in 60% of healthy males and 45% of the men using Viagra. Considering the long history of positive results and this study is the indication it just might work! I have a friend who says they can’t keep the stuff stocked at the local Wal Mart! More studies obviously are being conducted to support these conclusions.


you shouldn’t stand in water during a thunderstorm

Remember what your mom said about standing in water during a thunderstorm …. This just in from Yahoo …

6-story Jesus statue in Ohio struck by lightning
MONROE, Ohio – A six-story-tall statue of Jesus Christ with his arms raised along a highway was struck by lightning in a thunderstorm Monday night and burned to the ground, police said.

The “King of Kings” statue, one of southwest Ohio’s most familiar landmarks, had stood since 2004 at the evangelical Solid Rock Church along Interstate 75 in Monroe, just north of Cincinnati.
The lightning strike set the statue ablaze around 11:15 p.m., Monroe police dispatchers said.
The sculpture, 62 feet tall and 40 feet wide at the base, showed Jesus from the torso up and was nicknamed Touchdown Jesus because of the way the arms were raised, similar to a referee signaling a touchdown. It was made of plastic foam and fiberglass over a steel frame, which is all that remained early Tuesday.

The fire spread from the statue to an adjacent amphitheater but was confined to the attic area, and no one was injured, police Chief Mark Neu said. The fire department would release a monetary damage estimate Tuesday, he said.
Travelers on Interstate 75 often were startled to come upon the huge statue by the roadside, but many said America needs more symbols like it. So many people stopped at the church campus that church officials had to build a walkway to accommodate them.


Preacher offers fast track to heaven!

Evangelist Ronnie Hill’s Car Giveaway Attracts 10,300; Over 3,200 Professions of Faith

Last fall, when Carol Gray entered the drawing to win a new vehicle at, she said she prayed “selfishly” to win before confessing her selfishness to God.

Gray’s prayer was answered — and then some.

Before evangelist Ronnie Hill handed Gray the keys to a new Chrysler 300 LX, more than a dozen people professed their faith in Christ in response to Hill’s invitation after preaching at First Baptist Church in Cumming, Ga.

“That’s the whole thing right there,” said Gray, a member of Alpharetta (Ga.) First United Methodist Church. “The car is secondary.”

Hill’s year-long evangelistic campaign via the Internet — which he’s offering again this year — resulted in more than 10,300 people watching his three-minute Gospel presentation and registering for the free vehicle drawing. More than 3,200 people recorded professions of faith in Christ after watching the video.

Hill said the online drawing for the vehicle giveaway enables him to multiply the reach of his evangelistic ministry while providing Christians and churches an opportunity to help share the Gospel with those who aren’t likely to attend a church event.

“All you have to say is, ‘Hey, you want to win a brand new car?'” Hill said.

This year, Hill has expanded the website to include five additional video clips from which to choose a testimony, including that of an African American male, a Hispanic woman, a NASA engineer, a country music Grammy award winner and a woman who was a victim of sexual abuse.

Dumpster Diving … A New Way to Beat The Heat?

Its gonna be another hot day in the mountains (96! E-Gads!) … So this article caught my eye …

Dumpster Swimming Pools Make A Splash

NEW YORK (AP) — Some New Yorkers stuck in small apartments on a hot summer day have a new option: swimming in huge bins that once held trash.

The idea for the unlikely urban club came from David Belt, president of Macro Sea, a Manhattan design firm.

A contractor loaned him the three big metal bins and they were cleaned, lined with plastic and filled with water. Belt then rented an abandoned Brooklyn lot through the end of August.

And suddenly, he had himself three swimming pools, surrounded with lounge chairs, grills and a few cabanas.

It’s an experiment for now, not open to the public. Macro Sea is hosting private parties, film screenings and lectures at the trash bins-turned-into-pools.

I’m not so sure about this …

Susan Boyle on Britain Got Talent

by dwarthy

Meet the frumpy, unemployed, 47-year-old woman who shocked Simon Cowell.

During auditions for “Britain’s Got Talent” this week, Susan Boyle of the village West Lothian walked on to the stage to snickers from the audience and an eye-roll from Cowell. After she unleashed a perfect rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” from the musical “Les Miserables,” she left with the crowd on its feet.

“Without a doubt, that is the biggest surprise I’ve had in three years of the show,” said one of Cowell’s co-judges, Piers Morgan.

Boyle received three perfect scores and is the early favorite to win on the hit reality TV series.

“I know the minute you walked out on that stage that we were going to hear something extraordinary and I was right,” quipped Cowell.

In just three days, the clip of Boyle’s stunning performance has notched 2,605,000 views on YouTube.

“I’ve always wanted to play before a large audience,” Boyle said before hitting the stage. “I’m going to make that audience watch.”

Christian Speak

Posted in Christianity, humor, odds and ends, thoughts with tags , , , , , , , on April 13, 2009 by Tim R Wilson


Just came across this that ties in with another blog post a few weeks ago. Enjoy…

The Evangelical Press Association (EPA) website recently shared the following: Christianese is a language used in the Christian subculture and understood easily only by other practicing Christians. As Christian communicators it’s important to avoid words in our writing that could be misunderstood or fail to communicate terms that have meaning only in the Christian subculture.

As a public service, here are some common phrases used in the church, along with their English-language equivalents:

Christianese: If it be God’s will.
Translation: I really don’t think God is going to answer this one.

Christianese: I have a word of prayer.
Translation: I am going to pray for a long, long, long time.

Christianese: That’s not my spiritual gift.
Translation: Find someone else.

Christianese: Fellowship
Translation: Organized gluttony.

Christianese: The Lord works in mysterious ways.
Translation: I’m totally clueless.

Christianese: Lord willing . . .
Translation: You may think I’ll be there, but I won’t
Christianese: I don’t feel led.
Translation: Can’t make me.

Christianese: God led me to do something else.
Translation: I slept in instead of going to church.

Christianese: God really helped me with this test.
Translation: I didn’t study but I guessed good, so I’m giving God credit in the hope that He helps me again.

Christianese: She has such a sweet spirit!
Translation: What an airhead!

Christianese: I have a check in my spirit about him.
Translation: I can’t stand that jerk!”

Christianese: I’ll be praying for you.
Translation: There’s an outside chance I’ll remember this conversation later today.

Christianese: Prayer concerns
Translation: Gossip

Christianese: In conclusion . . .
Translation: I’ll be done in another hour or so.

Christianese: Let us pray
Translation: I’m going to pretend to talk to God now, but I am really preaching at you.

Christianese: You just have to put it in God’s hands.
Translation: Don’t expect me to help you.

Christianese: God wants to prosper you!
Translation: Give me all your money.

I do not personally find all of these amusing but obviously this list is meant to be in fun. I had to smile when I read “prayer concerns” and “let us pray” as I am very familiar with the true meaning behind these when I hear them from a certain person I know at church.
