Building the Ark 2004

It is the year 2004 and Noah lives in the United States. The Lord speaks
to Noah and says: "In one year I am going to make it rain and cover the
whole earth with water until all is destroyed. But I want you to save the
righteous people and two of every kind of living thing on the earth.

Therefore, I am commanding you to build an Ark." In a flash of lightning,
God delivered the specifications for an Ark.

Fearful and trembling, Noah took the plans and agreed to build the Ark.

"Remember," said the Lord, "You must complete the Ark and bring
everything aboard in one year."

Exactly one year later, a fierce storm cloud covered the earth and all
the of the earth went into a tumult. The Lord saw Noah sitting in his
front yard, weeping.

Noah." He shouted, "Where is the Ark?"

Lord please forgive me!" cried Noah. "I did my best, but there were big
problems" "First, I had to get a permit for construction and your plans
did not comply with the codes. I had to hire an engineering firm and
redraw the plans. Then, I got into a fight with OSHA over whether or not
the Ark needed a fire sprinkler system and flotation devices.

"Then my neighbor objected, claiming I was violating zoning ordinances by
building the Ark in my front yard, so I had to get a variance from the
city planning commission. I had problems getting enough wood for the Ark,
because there was a ban on cutting trees to protect the Spotted Owl. I
finally convinced the U. S. Forest Service that I needed the wood to save
the owls. However, the Fish and Wildlife Service won't let me catch any
owls. So, no owls.

"The carpenters formed a union and went out on strike. I had to negotiate
a settlement with the National Labor Union. Now I have 16 carpenters on
the Ark, but still no owls.

"When I started rounding up the other animals, I got sued by an animal
rights group. They objected to me only taking two of each kind aboard.

Just when I got the suit dismissed, the EPA notified me that I could not
complete the Ark without filing an environmental impact study on your
proposed flood. They didn't take very kindly to the idea that they had no
jurisdiction over the conduct of the Creator of the universe.

Then, the Army Corps of Engineers demanded a map of the proposed new
flood plain. I sent them a globe.

"Right now, I am trying to resolve a complaint filed with the Equal
Employment Opportunity Commission that I am practicing discrimination by
not taking godless, unbelieving people aboard!

"The IRS has seized all my assets, claiming that I'm building the Ark in
preparation to flee the country to avoid paying taxes."

"I just got a notice from the state that I owe some kind of user tax and
failed to register the Ark as a recreational water craft."

"Finally the ACLU got the courts to issue an injunction against further
construction of the Ark, saying that since God is flooding the earth it
is a religious event, therefore unconstitutional."

"I really don't think I can finish the Ark for another 5 or 6 years!"
Noah wailed.

The sky began to clear, the sun began to shine and the seas began to
calm. A rainbow arched across the sky. Noah looked up hopefully. "You
mean you are not going to destroy the earth, Lord?

"No," said the Lord, sadly. "The government has beat me to it."



HAVE A GOOD LORD'S DAY TOMORROW

Hugh,

I just returned home from visiting the part of northern Texas that your link discusses.  I can testify that the counties of British Columbia and Alberta are fabulously beautiful.  The Texans in those parts are very nice folks too.

I drove my little RV to Seattle, Washington.  Then Caryl met me by air, and we took the ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria.  Real nice place. I took Caryl to the Butchart Gardens.  It was very beautiful, and she enjoyed it.  (IMHO, when youv'e seen one flower.....)

Then we drove over to Calgary, Alberta to take in the Stampede.  I had obtained tickets several months in advance.  It was an excellent rodeo in the best Texas tradition.  In fact, many of the  participants were Texans, Okies, folks from Wyoming and Montana...wherever they have beef cattle.  Beef production is REALLY big in Alberta.  It is a plains area just like ND, SD, WY, MA, TX, OK, KS and MO.  

In fact it is so plains that we were greeted by a genuine Texas thunderstorm about 50 miles out of Calgary.  It was the real thing, complete with heavy rain, lightning and thunder, hail a foot deep on the road, winds gusting at 80 mph and a tornado warning!  Them folks from Alberta county really know how to make a Texan feel at home.  I'll tell you this...one doesn't fall asleep at the wheel driving through one of those!   Helps the prayer life too.

From Calgary we drove north through Edmonton.  Saw a real Texas sized mall there.  (This provides scientific proof that Canada is part of Texas).  I mean BIG...it had a water park complete with a swimming lagoon that had a wave machine, an ice hockey rink, an amusement park...it even had submarines!  No kidding...they were very much like the ones they used to have at Disneyland.  It had some panels broken out of the skylights.  Seems that thunderstorm had paid them a visit too.  That hail is hail on window glass.  Wink

We went west out of Edmonton.  Up to Jasper national park in the Rockies.  Trailed south down the Glacier Parkway through Lake Louise, Banff, Field, Waterton/Glacier park.  Rode out on the glacier in the glaciermobile.  These are Texas sized buses with 8 or 10 huge wheels and folding stairs that allow you to climb down to the glacier surface.  (note, if you ever do this, dress warmly.  Ice is cold! Southrn Calif. folks take notice.)

Our Glacier National Park is just about as beautiful, but on the Glacier Parkway you can cruise along on the highway taking in hundreds of miles of natural magnificence...neither words nor snapshots can describe the experience.

We ran into exactly one and one only Jerk in Canada.  The kid who drove the glacier bus.  He went way beyond the usual environmental lecture about global warming.  Made a bunch of insulting comments about the USA and SUV's and the evil people who are killing the world.  Blasted anyone who dared to disagree with him.   All this while he is driving a huge diesel truck!
But, what the heck...even Texas has a few jackasses of its own.

Well anyway we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to those northern counties of Texas.  But if you go there watch out for their predatory gas stations.  93.9 per liter in Victoria, BC.  That works out to about $2.70 per gallon in American dollars.

Gotta support those socialist programs y'know.

God bless,

Glad you enjoyed it Tom. Edmonton had a large hail storm the week before you arrived. It was so bad that the ice rink was full of water and some parts had 2 to 3 feet of water inside. The main thruway was covered in up to 4 feet of water mixed with baseball size hail. My sister lives there so I called to see how they were doing. She's fine but some people were really affected. The damage to cars averaged $6,000 from the hail.

In Ottawa we are around 2000 miles away give or take a few hundred miles so we didn't experience that.

Come and see the other part when you can.

See the link for the news article about the West Edmonton Mall and the hail damage.

You mean MT, not MA, when speaking about plains states, right?  MA is Massachusetts, but MT is Montana.

Coffee anyone

In Canada our military really takes their coffee seriously. I like their choice cause I believe Tim Hortons is the best too. I have an Xtra Large Double Double every day before going to work. Starbucks, Second Cup are here but Tim is king.

BTW for those who missed Tim Hortons is now owned by Wendy's and brings in more revenue in Canada than Wendy's own stores so they know a good thing when they see it. In Ottawa many Wendy's and Tim's are built together and have two drive thrus one for each. Guess which one is busy most of the time.

Lord bless you all in America. We were blessed this weekend with Nicole C. Mullen from the USofA at Worshipfest 2004 in Ottawa. She is so blessed and it never fails to bring tears to my eyes hearing her sing All things are possible. She is so precious bringing hope to people.

Once again Lord bless.
