I know that I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died for my sin. I am willing to turn from sin. I invite Christ into my heart and life as my personal Saviour.
If you have done this then you now need to find a Bible believing and preaching church. Here are a few that have websites. You can e-mail them if they are not in your area. They may be able to help you find one in your area. Here are the sites.
Erlanger Baptist Church
First Apostolic Church of Cincinnati
Florence United Methodist Church
Lilburn Alliance Church
Northern Kentucky Baptist Church
If these don't work I will provide links that do above.

"God blesses those who realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is given to them.
The poor in spirit
"There is probably no living man through whom God has worked more mightily than Billy Graham. Dr. Graham has reached more people with the gospel of Jesus than perhaps any person in history. Yet those who know him best don't usually talk about his accomplishments or the number of people he's led to Christ. They talk of his unbelievable humility.
Several years ago Dr. Graham was interviewed on PrimeTime Live. He was sitting somberly in a chair when the last question came his way: "What do you want people to say about you when you're gone?" His response took many by surprise. "I don't want people to say anything me. I want them to talk about my Savior. The only thing I want to hear is Jesus saying, 'Well done, my good and faithful servant.'" Then he bowed his head and said softly, "But I'm not sure I'm going to hear that." It was a rare but honest look into the true nature of Billy Graham's heart. In spite of all he's done for the work of the Kingdom, he still sees himself unworthy of God's commendation.
The highest honor in heaven is reserved for those who least expect it. The first in line to receive his blessing will likely be the ones who were content to stay at the back of the line on earth. If you want to know the true strength and power of Billy Graham's life, look at his heart, not his crusade attendances. God doesn't save us because of who we are or what we've done but because of our faith in accepting his gift of salvation.

He's back. The Human Rocket. The Man called Nova. I am a big fan of Nova and his creator Marv Wolfman. Nova has not been treated too well by Marvel. Well they have tried to keep him in the comic buying public's eye. The first year his series came out he was a smash hit. Everybody I knew who bought comics was talking about Nova. However, for some reason year 2 faltered. Nova went from monthly publishing status to bi-monthly to gone. On occassion he did show up in other books like What If? or the Fantastic Four. But for the most part he was gone. Then came a book called the New Warriors and Nova was a member. It was no surprise to me that he became their most popular member. Again he was given his own title. Eventually both series were canceled. A few years later they tried again but with no luck. Perhaps they should get his dear old Dad Marv Wolfman to write it again. He seemed to be pretty good at it. I have read on this page that Marvel is trying again in 2006. Mr. Wolfman created the character in a fanzine in 1966. The fanzine was Super Adventures and he was first called the Star then changed to Black Nova and finally just Nova. I have heard that because of this Mr. Wolfman owns the rights to Nova. Perhaps that is why there was no merchandising of the character back in the 70's. I would loved to have a t-shirt or sweatshirt with Nova on it. Actually I do have a sweatshirt of Nova. Thanks to computers I was able to take the character off the cover of issue #1 and make an iron on transfer out of it. It has been washed so many times that it now really looks like I have had it since 1976. If you want to look at the great site that tells you everything about Nova then click on the title of this article and it
will take you there.

Earlier I mentioned that the Monkees, as a show and a rock group, are favorites of mine. However, recently it has come to my attention that people in their 20's do not know the Monkees had a TV show. They don't know that it was a sit-com first and that the cast became a rock group. I know that the radio stations have kept the group alive with the music on the airwaves. Still it was the tv show that made them popular. First with the original airings in the 60's. Later when it ran on Saturday mornings in the late 60's and early 70's. Then in syndication on independent stations and on cable stations like MTV, VH1 and Nick at Nite. But the show, to my knowledge, has not been on tv in years. If anyone knows who to get in touch with at Sony or Rhino please tell them if they want an future success with the Monkees they need to syndicate the show again. Perhaps Spike TV, TV Land or maybe even Hallmark. Hallmark is showing Gilligan's Island so why not The Monkees. Maybe then you can get the four Monkees to do a movie while they still can.
A previous post was a story of mine called A War On A World. It was created partly by accident. I have a story that is being published this November. The book it is in is called "It's That Time Again Volume 3" and you can go to the site that tells you how to order it by clicking on the title above. The above photo is of the book "It's That Time Again Vol. 2" It is still for sale as well. It is a book series with new stories based on old time radio shows. You can buy it a BearManor Media at this link http://bearmanormedia.bizland.com/id87.html or again by clicking on the title above. My story is about War of the Worlds and Superman. However I could not mention Superman in the story as the publisher could not get the rights to use him. The editor is Jim Harmon. If that name is familer it may be because he is a famous writer of science fiction and Spider-Man comics for Marvel comics. He told me I would have to cloak the charactor. Use him and anyone related to him without mentioning their names. (spolier warning: If you want to read A War On A World stop now. Otherwise you will read the surprise ending of the story.}Instead of using Superman's parents Jor-El and Lara I called them Jordan Ellis and Laura Thompson. Sort of showing how they met. In the end it was to be Earth invading Krypton. However, Mr. Harmon didn't see where the Superman character was. With coaching from Jim I was able to write a different story that he liked and used in the book. If you want to read the story that was published go to http://bearmanormedia.bizland.com/id87.html by clicking on the title above and order the book before it is released in November. I believe you get a discount if you pre-order the book. So order now. Order often. Also, make my order with fries and a shake.
