  • Hi Friends,

    As you know FJ is completely free for both members and guests.  We are able to provide FJ for free due to ad revenue.  I'm not going to start forcing people to see ads to look at the site like some places do, but I am going to ask that those of you that enjoy FJ and use it routinely to turn off your ad blockers while you visit us.   

    If you visit us every day and turn your ad blocker off several times a week while you are here that would be a help.

    Keeping ads to a minimum and not requiring members and guests to turn off their ad blockers means we make enough to cover monthly expenses with a small buffer for those times of year we have extra expenses like taxes.

    If we come to the point where we are no longer able to sustain FJ at the level we are currently we will be forced to cut expenses and thus site performance or force people to turn off ad blockers while visiting us.   I would really rather not do either of those things, so if you can please remember to turn off your ad blocker a few times a week, we would all appreciate it.

    Thank you,
    Curious

    4. Lori & Ken Alexander (Always Learning/The Transformed Wife)

      UPDATE 2019: Lori Alexander wrote a book (basically turned her blog into a book. There was little, if any, new content) called "The Transformed Wife" and now blogs at  https://thetransformedwife.com/

      She has also discovered social media and delivers her dangerous and unbiblical advice on:

      Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thetransformedwife/

      Twitter: https://twitter.com/laalex2?lang=en

      Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thetransformedwife/?hl=en

      Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsPbQz30YqPNOE4pKedswUA

       

      Lori blogs at lorialexander.blogspot.com which she considers her "ministry" to younger married women. She preaches mostly submission with a side order of child "training" (she is an unapologetic Michael & Debi Pearl follower). Her blog has become an incessant tirade about men needing lots of sex and women giving it no matter how they feel and how women can change their husbands by submitting and being "godly".

      Ken Alexander, her orthodontic consultant husband, visited FJ in early 2014 to set us all straight....hilarity ensued.

    5. John and Esther (Keller) Shrader

      John Shrader (a/k/a The World's Worst Missionary) moved his wife, Esther, and their evergrowing brood to Zambia to convert Christians to the "right" brand of Christianity.

      Before moving to Zambia, the Shraders lived in a pop-up camper while on deputation.  They relied on the kindness of various churches, as well.  John grifted money for a plane (sight unseen already located in Zambia) and flying lessons.

      Since moving to Zambia he has grifted an amazing amount of money and items for his "ministry."  He has converted approximately 2 people in the 5 or so years he's been there.

      The Shrader's quality of life is far above what they had in the US.  They have all the necessities: an actual house, a fridge with an icemaker, and a supply of sunflower seeds and beef jerky.

      Join us as we chronicle John's misadventures in deepest darkest sub-Saharan Africa.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
