The website is here: http://www.creationmuseum.org/
Sounds very interesting…

This is the do it your self electric car kit.
you can transform your gas guzzler into
an all electric car (at a price), I still wonder if
a new electric car already made would be
a better value?
Chris wrote about twittering at his blog, check it out HERE, I have just started twittering and it is great. It is like instant messaging but to your blog, with the possibility of a copy of what you just wrote going to as many of your friends who also may want to follow you. You also follow your friends and you can jot ideas, things that just pop into your head (some may just be inspirational) or just what you are doing. Your friends care about what you do and say as much as you care about them and this is just another way to stay connected, informed and best of all, In Prayer for your friends, family and leaders. If God brings one of your leaders to mind, twitter a prayer for him or her, God knows our thoughts, but our friends don't, and as we pray for one another through this means, it just may spark one of our friends to pray with us as well, Bringing up to the Father a need that He wants to meet in their lives, or a situation that only He can help prevent, but won't unless asked to. James tells us that We have not because we ask not. Hopefully I can start something here that will benefit all of us as we call upon Gods grace and mercy for our elders, friends and family. Doesn't even have to be long or specific, When God brings to your mind someone, say or twitter a quick prayer for them, who knows, It may be just what they needed.
I would have to say that the arguments for a lightscribe system are very encouraging. I found this CD/DVD duplication tower on line at google shopping and the price seems to be reasonable as well. This is a 1 to 8 tower that doesn't need a computer hooked up to it to work. What it does ( what it does is taken from the brief reading that is on the webpage) I have Placed here:
What Lightscribe is
How Lightscribe Works:
1. Burn the image label you created from the saved file on your computer onto a CD. (Please note that the Lightscribe software is only compatible with a PC and not recognized on an Apple computer)
Benefits Of Lightscribe Duplicator:
Being that this is a standalone system, it can be placed at the welcome center and any sermons past or present (that have already been burned using lightsctribe can be duplicated on demand at the time that the requestor is wanting them. I can see where this would save us a lot of time and money and make a better use of the resources that God has given us.
Out of curiosity I did some research on the lightscribe technology and whether or not it would look and or do us good in the production environment at church, What I did find was that it takes up to 30 minutes to burn a label. YIKES! as many disks as we go through that would not work.
We currently are using a thermal printer which is slow, but gives a permanent label that looks good.
The inkjet ones look good as well, but how permanent is the ink?
We eventually will be needing to upgrade or replace what we are using as the equipment is showing the warning signs of wearing out and may start to give us trouble but for now until a better system can be found, It will have to hold together.
I like the look of light scribe, I just wish it was faster (It runs at 1x), so graphically intense labels will take forever to print.
Lightscribe is still fairly new though so I can only hope that as the lasers evolve, they will get faster and better.
I found this image on line of how lightscribe labeled disks can look, It is nice, I just wish that it didn't take 30 minuites to work.
In Matthew 5:3-12; Jesus does what is called the Sermon on the mound, aka the beatitudes.
the basics are something that we must remember in order to be at peace in Christ and with ourselves. Synopsis…If you want something give it away, this is how we gain the stuff that is most important. Money can't buy happiness, Generosity to others, kindness to those who may not deserve kindness, Love to those who may not be loveable, these things we give away and receive back from God in abundance. You want to be happy, make others Happy and God will make your heart glad. Need encouragement?, give encouragement to others and be more encouraged yourself, need money? be generous and let God supply your needs (ouch that’s a hard one ain't it). In the same measure that we give that is how we receive from God. If we are stingy, He will be stingy with us, but if we are generous, he also will be generous with us, and even more so.
3"You're blessed when you're at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.
4"You're blessed when you feel you've lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.
5"You're blessed when you're content with just who you are—no more, no less. That's the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can't be bought.
6"You're blessed when you've worked up a good appetite for God. He's food and drink in the best meal you'll ever eat.
7"You're blessed when you care. At the moment of being 'care-full,' you find yourselves cared for.
8"You're blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.
9"You're blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That's when you discover who you really are, and your place in God's family.
10"You're blessed when your commitment to God provokes persecution. The persecution drives you even deeper into God's kingdom.
11-12"Not only that—count yourselves blessed every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. You can be glad when that happens—give a cheer, even!—for though they don't like it, I do! And all heaven applauds. And know that you are in good company. My prophets and witnesses have always gotten into this kind of trouble.
