It’s like the Onion, if the Onion focused on American Christian culture and was actually funny most of the time. A friend of mine who used to be the music minister at my church turned me on to it a few weeks back and now I find myself checking it regularly for new content. It’s probably not funny to people who don’t spend much time around  Christians, but I usually find stuff I want to share with my friends at least once a week.

 

Trigger Warning: If you like Donald Trump, Benny Hinn or Joel Osteen, you might not like the humor. They’re frequently part of the jokes since so many Christians have opinions, often conflicting, on them.

NASHVILLE, TN—Taking inspiration from grim Hollywood reboots like Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, B&H Kids announced Wednesday that it would be relaunching the Bibleman series of superhero stories in a dark and gritty resurrection of the purple-and-gold caped crusader.

“While previous Bibleman encounters have seen the titular hero happily dispatching villains intent on destroying the church and the Word of God, this time Bibleman is really taking the gloves off. The Israelites didn’t show mercy to the Midianites, and neither will the new-and-improved Bibleman to his foes. We’re talking blood and guts galore,” the statement released by B&H Kids stated in part.

The Bomb and Heavy Water February 15, 2016

Since I have the day off, I’ll assuage a little guilt and post something. My wife had a new book related to her job with some of the yutes at the local school and started reading it to me as we drove about doing the family errands a few weeks ago. It seems to be aimed at young adults, and is on the history of the creation of the atomic bomb. This is it (centered appropriately):

Product Details

Oppenheimer is kind of the hero of the book and I learned quite a bit about him. The scientific explanations are also pretty good (IMHO). So, I recommend it as a fast read. BUT, the story that jumped out to me that I had never heard of was the fight over the control of a heavy water production plant in Norway. The Germans wanted the heavy water as they were in a race with the U.S. for the atomic bomb. The allies were determined that they not get it. It’s an amazing story of bravery and sacrifice. As my wife and I were looking for something to watch on Netflix last night, what did we come across, but this:

 

It’s a six-part miniseries done by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation. We watched the first couple of episodes and it’s well done. Whether you read about it or watch it, it’s a story worth knowing.

Here’s Charlie Daniels.

 

Full Disclosure, I did the lighting for Charlie’s show a few times. He was the most gracious and humble performer that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. He would open up his dressing room every night to the crew for snacks and photo opportunities. I probably have a photo of him with Mrs. Geezer.
