The Big Bang Theory in Syndication

In episode 1 of season 2 of The Big Bang Theory, Leonard and Penny go on their first date. Both people feel insecure about the date and unbeknownst to them both, each of them has feelings for the other person. When Leonard learns of Penny’s insecurity about her intelligence, he gives her brochures to a local community college and tells her he is fine dating a girl who isn’t smart. Penny abruptly slams the door in his face.

I was asked "In your opinion, What are the top 3 things that a man should never say to a women? Is this a dealbreaker?"

Top 3 Things to Never Say to a Woman
1. You look fat.
2. You don't look pretty.
3. Meet my wife.

Each of those would be a deal breaker for me. How about you?

The Big Bang Theory 5 Night a Week

In episode 13 from season one of The Big Bang Theory, “The Bat Jar Conjecture,” which airs Wednesday October 10th, Sheldon’s arrogance ostracizes him from the group which leads to him competing directly against his friends with Sheldon's Group.

I was asked "Have you ever competed against a good friend? If your best friend knew that one item that would make a mends, what would it be? Is it as funny as a batman cookie jar?"

I competed against friends for good grades in school, but I did not have any angry competitions. I don't know what would make a mends.

10 Holiday Planning Tips

Can you believe it is already October? There are only 7 weeks till Thanksgiving, and there are only 11 weeks till Christmas. Yikes! Where does the time go?

It seems that I, like most people, get very busy over the Holidays. Every year I tell myself I am going to be more organized. I wanted to give you some tips for holiday planning.

1. Make out your Christmas lists. My son keeps a running wish list for Christmas and his birthday. :) If he sees a movie or a game he likes, he writes it down.

2. Decide the logistics of Thanksgiving.
Where will you be celebrating? Who will cook the turkey? If you are not eating at your house, what will you need to bring?

3. Purchase baking supplies and things for the meals when you find them on sale.
My mom usually cooks the turkey, and she just freezes it until Thanksgiving. I like to purchase my supplies to make Christmas cookies.

4. Get your Christmas cards.
Check out the Storkie Christmas cards. The picture above is from their website. They have many cute styles. You can also get matching custom postage stamps, envelope seals, and address labels.

5. Address your Christmas Cards.
At Storkie.com you can get your return address printed on the envelopes. You can even get have the recipient's name and address printed on the front.

6. Gather your decorations to be ready when it is time to hang them.
I usually keep mine in the attic. I try to keep them all in the same area, so I don't have to search for things when I am ready to decorate.

7. You can wrap presents.
If you really want to get a head start on Christmas preparations, you could start wrapping presents now and wrap them as you purchase them.

8. Purchase any needed decorations.
Look for sales on Christmas decorations. They are the cheapest after Christmas, but if you need something for this Christmas, there will be plenty of sales.

9. Get busy shopping for Christmas presents.
I shop throughout the year and purchase when I see something at a really good price. I have to hide the presents for my kids at a relative's house, or they will find them.

10. Remember to keep the focus on "The Reason for the Season" which is the birth of Jesus who came to take away our sins. It is easy to get to distracted with the activities of the Holidays, so we have to make it a priority.

I hope these tips are helpful in your Holiday planning. Looking at the list I realized there are several things I could be doing now myself.

Finding Local Christian Organizations and Programs

Are you a Christian who is interested in volunteering in a Christian organization or a Christian program? If you are, do you already have an idea as to which program or programs you would like to offer your support to? If not, you will want to continue reading on.

When it comes to finding a local Christian organization or a Christian program to volunteer with, you will find that you have a number of different options. One of those options involves speaking with your church congregation leaders. Church officials are often the best source of information, in terms of programs that can use assistance from devoted Christians. In addition to giving the name and contact information a Christian program or organization that could use your assistance, you may find that your church already runs a similar organization or has plans to do so in the near future.

In addition to your church leaders, you may also want to speak with your other church congregation members. You may be surprised how many individuals take steps to volunteer in or around their community. Other church congregation members may have suggestions to offer you. These suggestions are nice, as they may have first hand experience with the groups being recommended. This means that you should have an idea as to what would be expected of you. You may even find church congregation members who would like to help you start a new Christian group.

The phone book is another one of the many ways that you can go about finding local Christian organizations. While the phone book can be a little bit tricky, in terms of finding non-profit organizations and programs, it is more than possible to do. What you may first want to do is check in your yellow pages. Some non-profit organizations are listed there. You may also want to find the contact information for other Christian churches in your area, as they may have their own organizations and programs that need support. While contacting other nearby churches is a nice approach to take, you will first want to check with your own church first.

The internet is another one of the many ways that you can find Christian programs and organizations to join and volunteer. In fact, the internet is a wealth of information. If you already know the names of a few local organizations or programs, like ones that have been recommended to you, you may want to perform a standard internet search with that information. If the organization in question is one that operates on a national level, you may want to include your city or state in with your standard internet search. This approach is nice if you are looking to narrow down your search.

You can also use the internet to find Christian organizations and programs that you do not already know the names of. The best way to do so is by performing a standard internet search. You may want to search with phrases such as “Christian organizations,” or “Christian volunteering.” It may also be a good idea to tailor your search if you are looking for something in particular. For instance, if you would like to help out youths, your internet search should include the phrases “Christian youth organizations,” and so forth.

Another one of the many ways that you can find local Christian programs and organizations to help with is by keeping your eyes and your ears open. Local Christian organizations, especially when hosting events, often advertise. These advertisements may appear in your local newspapers or on community bulletin boards. You can use the information provided to contact the organizers to see if any volunteer assistance is needed.

The above mentioned approaches are the best ways to go about finding local Christian programs and organizations to help. As a reminder, if you are looking to volunteer locally, you may first want to speak with those in your church congregation, including church leaders.
