Blogger Saves The Day.

Yesterday I was almost done with my post. I sat back in my chair, closed my eyes and everything went dark, literally. I lost power for about 5 seconds. I thought I had lost my post. I am a one-fingered typist so it takes me awhile to do these. I had decided instead of retyping the post I would simply call it ARGGHH!! and explain what happened. When my computer booted up and I went to blogger I checked and the autosave feature had kept all but the last sentence that I had typed. That feature is my new hero. At least until the next thing comes along. Planning this post reminded me of a joke.

Jesus and Satan have a discussion as to who is the better programmer. This goes on for a few hours until they come to an agreement to hold a contest, with God as the judge.

They sit themselves at their computers and begin. They type furiously, lines of code streaming up the screen, for several hours straight. Seconds before the end of the competition, a bolt of lightning strikes, taking out the electricity. Moments later, the power is restored, and God announces that the contest is over.

He asks Satan to show what he has come up with. Satan is visibly upset, and cries, "I have nothing. I lost it all when the power went out."

"Very well, then," says God, "let us see if Jesus fared any better."

Jesus enters a command, and the screen comes to life in vivid display, the voices of an angelic choir pour forth from the speakers. Satan is astonished.

He stutters, "B-b-but how? I lost everything, yet Jesus' program is intact. How did he do it?"

God smiled all-knowingly, "Jesus saves."

I noticed I have a new follower with a great name, Winthrop J. Quiggy. I checked his blog out, Quiggy's World, and it looks like a lot of fun. Welcome Quiggy.

Mike and Travis were right. A flute is not a brass instrument.

Today's question is Grade 4/U.S. History.

On March 14, 1794, who recieved a patent for the cotton gin?

I knew this one. 60-14.

If my meager education serves me correctly, it was Eli Whitney.
