Good Friday The Day Jesus Gave Up So Much For Us

easter

I’ve been posting Friday Funnies for about a year now but not today. Nope, today is Good Friday and that to many Christians is a very holy day. Way too holy to belittle with jokes and so I’ve decided to give Friday Funnies a miss this week, and I’m sure you guys won’t mind.

I’ve done a couple of posts over the years, always around this particular time too  :giggle: , the first was called Easter, It’s More Than Just A Public Holiday and included a poem I put together for the occasion. Because Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ it shows us what a huge sacrifice the Lord made for us. In the poem I tried to convey a sense of that sacrifice as well as relate a little of the Easter story. I hope you take the time to read it.

Good Friday

I wrote he second post, Good Friday And What It Means To Me, last year and I tried to show you guys exactly how I felt about Easter. To me it’s more than just a holiday. It’s a time to spend with the family, to think about Jesus’ life and what we can do to be a little more like him. Most of that time that requires some sort of sacrifice and most of the time people won’t be prepared to do that. Perhaps if we think of the great sacrifice Jesus made for us we would be more prepared to sacrifice a little for Him.

Anyway, whether you believe in Easter or not I hope you have a great and safe weekend.

Dropbox And Why You Should Have One

Dropbox Benefits

You’re probably wondering what a Dropbox is. A Dropbox is a free service that lets lets you store your precious photos, docs, and videos online. More than that it even allows you to share them easily with friends, family and work associates. With a Dropbox you never have to email a file to yourself again. These are just some of the many benefits you get from having a Dropbox  and I recommend everyone to get one. And I’m not doing it just because by doing so I get an extra 500 MB of space for every person I sign up! Up to 16 GB worth. I should also mention that every person who signs up under me also gets a 500 MB of bonus space!

What You Get When You Join Dropbox

I’ve probably missed out the most important feature about having a Dropbox. Once you dropboxhave uploaded a file into your Dropbox it automatically save to all your computers and phones. Before having a Dropbox it used to be such a pain retrieving a photo I’ve taken with my HTC phone so I could use it in a post. Now all I do is access my Dropbox via the WordPress Dashboard. I no longer have to curse when writing a post on my MacBook air because the image I’m looking for is on my PC. Now I just make sure I save the image to my Dropbox and it is instantly available to my MacBook air, and my Phone. This means I can now show mates stuff no matter where I am.

At the moment I’ve got over 5 GB of free space but I’m pretty sure I only started with 2 GB when I first joined. If you join by clicking a link on this site you get an extra 500 MB giving you 2.5 GB of space. Once you’ve joined you can refer your friends earning 500 MB with each referral up to a nice 16 GB of space. You can even earn extra space immediately after joining without getting one referral. It’s so easy to do too.

The first thing you do upon joining is to click the “Getting Started” tab and complete the following seven steps.

  1. Take the Dropbox Tour
  2. Install Dropbox on Your Computer
  3. Put Files in your Dropbox Folder
  4. Install Dropbox on Other Computers You Use
  5. Share a Folder with Friends or Colleagues
  6. Invite Some Friends to Join Dropbox
  7. Install Dropbox on Your Mobile Device

I’ve completed all but the sixth one and I now have 5.75 GB of space. I don’t actually recall how much you get from completing each step but whatever it is it all adds up. You can even earn space by connecting it to Twitter, FaceBook and by following Dropbox. 125 MB for each action.

I could go on and on but I’m sure I’ve given you enough to entice you to  join. Did I mention it was free?  :drunk_tb:

Ellen DeGeneres What’s With All The Fuss?

Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen Degeneres arrived in Australia the other day, to copy Oprah’s visit to do a show at Sydney’s Opera House. Not very original if you ask me. Personally I couldn’t care less where she goes because I have just as much interest in her show as I did in Oprah’s, zilch!

Nope what bothers me is the way all the demented Aussies are throwing themselves at her and Portia, speaking of which I feel she looked stunning with long hair but her present hair cut just doesn’t do her justice. But what do I know, I’m just a bloke. :tongue_laugh_ee:

I understand that Ellen has her following but she’s just a talk show host! She’s not a rock star. She hasn’t invented a cure for cancer or done some huge humanitarian deed or anything. She’s just another human being who I believe doesn’t deserve all the adulation. And yet Ellen fans line up for ages just to get a glimpse of her. Really. And then I saw this Aussie bloke who admitted to being close to tears upon meeting her. Really? All I can say is that guy must be an impostor posing as an Aussie because it’s always been my understanding that it takes a lot more than meeting a stray Yank to make us cry.

Still, Ellen is a tourist and as such she should be welcomed by us and treated to a great time while visiting our lovely country, but perhaps with a little less emotional onslaught. No screaming, no bursting in to tears and definitely no fainting at the sight of her. I reckon she would have a beter time in Australia if she could walk amongst us without having to be shepherded around by her security guards.
