    Hello, all. I'm turning to our community here for assistance. As most of you probably know by now, I suffered a nasty stroke. I was in the hospital and rehab for a damn long time. Now I'm waiting for a government program to find me a new, handicapped apartment. My previous apartment wasn't handicapped accessible, so it had to go. Now to my need for your help. While I was in the hospital the docs told my sister I probably would not live. My sister has power of attorney for me and she's been amazing. The only real beef I have with her is that she left my library behind when she cleaned out my old apartment. She left instructions to the building management to let the other tenants take what books they might want. My sister has no idea how valuable my library was, nor how advanced. I can't see regular people having much if any interest in my books. I looked up some of my favorite books at Amazon and quickly learned my library amounted to several thousand dollars, so it's not realistic for me to replace them. I recently got myself an Amazon Fire tablet and have been downloading inexpensive e-books. This has enabled me to return to my routine of nightly reading, and I'm rather liking that. But I've pretty much picked up all the Amazon e-books related to ancient Egypt and the Near East. My question to you folks is, where else might I look for e-books on the ancient Near East? I'd appreciate any help rendered. Thanks.

    My three granddaughters have volunteered to work at several charities this coming holiday season. The two youngest have already helped to fill Thanksgiving baskets at a local church and the middle school granddaughter has helped at the local soup kitchen.

    El, I think you have unknowingly joined the "disinformation" club. To suggest that those creatures are baby owls is just ludacris. Just look at those hollow haunting eyes and spindly limbs. I cannot believe the guy filming didnt take proper precautions and wear his tin foil hat, those aliens clearly have him convinced that he is in no real danger being in the midst of "baby owls". I bet loading the video was his last action on this earth. Sayonara.

    "A sitting president can't be investigated for crimes." The mere fact that there is a possible Supreme Court Case arguing this is an embarrassment to America and a slap in the face of our Founding Fathers who were trying to avoid a monarchy.

    He evidently didn't try very hard did he ? Are you saying that those examples are better than his "proof" ? "Let's just say there is an adversary, there is a devil, there is a Satan. His whole job would be to try to convince the world that God doesn't exist. He's done an incredible job convincing people with the idea that we're just on a random speck in an infinite universe."

    Beaver create wetland environments and their ponds are utilized by a wide assort of wildlife. They have a rather congenial and symbiotic relationship with the muskrat and share their dens with them.

    Not sure why you think that me personally practicing a cultural custom is somehow "expecting it to rule" anybody else. It's not like I've demanded or even suggested that anyone else adopt my customs. You're the only one doing that, lol

    This is quite an abhorrent statement by the Foreign Secretary Its not about balance - its about doing the right thing in regards to the law. Balance should not be a factor.

    Lol...the evidence of illegal chicanery by the Bidens and others in Ukraine is very real and damning. The only way one could fail to see it is if they spend all of their energy making stuff up about Trump. Lots and lots of liberal tears after yesterday's Schiff-show debacle...even HuffPo's comment page was loaded with lefties saying the inquiry is a farce. And who doesn't LOVE a liberal tear-storm?

    Do YOU remember this? Were you there? Or do you mean "Do you remember reading that this is what Jesus supposedly said?" IIRC, Jesus was pished because all his disciples fell asleep while he was praying. Sooooooo, who wrote this down if everyone else was asleep?

    You wonder when the horror set in.. the rabid foaming, the point where us and them got to points of death. You didn't know the mortar was acid and lime, sprinkled with just words of what could have been kind to set those stones in. And then you knew it was acid and lime, and chose to set that with nuggets of of nasty, setting in layers of unnecessary grotesquely slime.. or sublime... us vs them instead of something better or more constructive. And then the rain sets in....

    I'd argue that it's very clear what the intention of the text is. It wasn't "mind control" in any sense, but it's a world where God is in control of everything. It's completely consistent with the rest of the bible. I guess it doesn't really matter to me. I'm not a Christian or a Jew. Neither answer will affect my world view. But it is what I'd argue the Bible teaches.

    Millions of people in the United States including prominent entertainers and sports figures and all over the world KNOW that the world is flat. Pictures from space are dismissed as faked by a world conspiracy. (Imagine all of the governments in the world getting together to hide the fact the world is flat.) They don't believe the laws of physics are correct, they don't believe GPS satellites and air line travel routes. They will accept no evidence to the contrary because their gut tells them that the world is flat. Are you like that? Does evidence matter to you, or just what a lot of people say and your gut tells you? That is all I am asking for. Investigate, provide evidence and we will be on the same side of this question. I really don't care who is Democrat and who is Republican, just who is honest, capable and representing the people, not advancing their own interests ahead of the US. Lying to Congress is a crime. Using the power of the US government to obtain personal favors also should be a crime. So if Hillary did those thing, it is pretty cut and dried. IF, as many clever lawyers do she was within the letter of the law but not observing its spirit, then she is unethical and dishonest. If what she did was NOT against the law, then no prosecution. Congress could change that law to plug the loopholes so it does not happen in the future. You are faced with an unpleasant choice. Either she was investigated and she did not break the letter of the law or you have to formulate some deep state flat earth conspiracy that she is "protected" Third option is what Gromdor mentioned she is more valuable running loose and scaring conservatives than as an example of equal justice, tried for crimes on the basis of evidence. I will repeat, evidence would be good

    Nail-biter governor’s race in Louisiana reaches final hours In a race that has become a nail-biter, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards battled Saturday to defy the partisan odds in the ruby red South and win reelection to a seat that President Donald Trump desperately wants returned to Republicans. https://wtop.com/national/2019/11/louisiana-voters-pick-between-democratic-governor-and-trump/

    No one seem to know why. Could have been a decision by trump alone or one whispered in his ear by one of his toadies. Either way, no good will come of this. It's very disappointing that there are a few here at UM that feel that no matter what Gallagher and the other prisoner did, they should be released with rank reinstated. Sad.

    The guy's a wacko. Just the other day he said that Ivanka created 14 million jobs. The bureau of statistics calculated something like 300,000 new jobs but Trump thinks his a factual genesis. And lets not forget his supporters. Don't get me started !
