♣ - In news that surprises absolutely no one who has ever had a baby, new research has "discovered" that babies do "fake" cry in order to get attention.
♣ - I downloaded a "Chess" app for iOS and I set the difficulty to the highest grandmaster level. Because that's how I roll! I promptly got obliterated. I did not think it was even possible to get checkmated three moves into a match. (Just kidding, but that's not much of an exaggeration.)
♣ - To be fair to Chris Christie, I have seen no evidence of his involvement in New Jersey's bridge closing scandal. But if Christie is guilty of intentionally shutting down the bridge for childish political retribution, I absolutely will not vote for him in the 2016 general election. We do not need someone that dangerously corrupt anywhere near the White House. The power of the President is too vast for that, which is why this is a disqualification.
♣ - ClearNote Fellowship is having a church officers' conference next month, and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who serves a church. The audio from past conferences is very educational and encouraging. See audio from 2013, 2013, 2012, 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009.
♣ - Facebook has just launched a new feature to show what is "trending" on the popular social networking site. Congratulations, Facebook! Now you are only five years behind Twitter and a couple years behind Google Plus.
