If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don't want to do it."

A dreary day

It's overcast and calm outside. But this is the calm before the storm...

Wind Advisory remains in effect from 6 am to 4 PM PST

Wednesday... 

* winds: southeast 15 to 30 mph with gusts up to around 40 mph.

* Timing: winds will increase across the region Wednesday morning
and are expected to peak in the afternoon as a cold front moves
through the region. The strongest winds are expected to be
around the Interstate 80 corridor and south. Winds will decrease
behind the frontal passage late in the day. Although winds are
expected to increase again and be even stronger Thursday evening
into Friday.

...and along with the wind we will get this...
 Flood Watch remains in effect from Thursday afternoon through
Sunday afternoon... 

The Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of northern California... Sacramento Valley... West
Slope northern Sierra Nevada... northern Sierra
foothills... Carquinez Strait and Delta... Clear Lake

  1. Some pretty designs alright. Doing the painting yourselves is more fun but a good place for ideas for more design is this site of wahooart.com, that I use to help with my wall decorations.
    You can browse for a painting like this The tree, by 20th century Czech artist, Frantisek Kupka, for example, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LHUQV , that can be ordered on line and delivered to you.
