Hello. Have you heard about Church at the Crossings?
Why no, I have not. Where is it located?
It is in the same complex as the old WalMart building. We meet at 10:30 AM every Sunday.
Really? That seems earlier than other churches in the area.
You are correct. Because we meet earlier, we are also out earlier and you can beat the lunch crowds.
That is awesome. How is the music?
We have very upbeat music with electric guitars and drums - it is more of a band atmosphere.
Excellent - but will my kids enjoy that type of service.
Your children are always welcome to stay with you in the service. However, we have a superb Crossings Kids team for babies and toddlers, preschoolers and school age children through twelve years of age. This experience is geared towards their age group so that they can experience worship and learning on their level.
Wow - this sounds like a place perfect for me. I will see you there next Sunday! Woo Hoo!

Adding details and advanced CSS techniques to projects when unasked can increase the value of yourself as a designer, so learning new things is practical as both a personal and business move. I encourage everyone to try out at least a few of these techniques you are unaware of. Even if it’s hard to imagine a practical use for them right now, it can be incredibly useful in future projects, or you may come up with a revolutionary idea based on these strategies.
Either way — try them out. Put them into practice, and brainstorm ways to include them in your current design process. It can do any designer or developer a lot of good. Constantly learning new techniques is the key to becoming a successful designer or developer. READ MORE
To me things seem very bad right now, but on some level what’s going on isn’t quite as bad for the tech sector as things were during the dot.com crash. Now this isn’t to say that folks aren’t hurting, but that last crash seemed very specific to the tech sector while this crash seems to be hitting everyone everywhere. My gut feeling is that the worst may not be over, so with this in mind here are my tips (both small and large) from what I’ve learned:

If there's one thing about liberals, it's that they're predictably predictable. In their eyes, it is more than acceptable to mock Sarah Palin and her family, using descriptions that range from rude to crude. When President Bush was in office, he was the focus of daily ridicule from left-wing journalists and bloggers.
However, no one better make fun of Barack Obama or the thought police will express "outrage" and brand you a racist. That's exactly what is happening now as a poster of Obama in "Joker" makeup is popping up on walls and city streets. My question to the lefties: Why so serious?

I absolutely hate those stupid Kroger commercials they have. People talking about how much fresher their fruit is than everybody else's? How do they know? Most folks I know have one store they like going to. So unless you have some independent "mystery" shopper going out or an investigative reporter going and checking out fruit at every store and comparing them, I would say that these comments are crap.
I heard a commercial this morning talking about the meats. Now I understand that meat quality can differ from store to store, but there is a baseline that has to be met and that should be well over anyone's expectations. This one woman was talking about how Kroger's meat specifically was tender and juicy. OK, unless this lady eats meat raw, isn't that subject to the way it is cooked? You're going to tell me you can't go buy meat anywhere else and after you cook it to the same specifications it is not tender and juicy?
Hey - Guess what folks, the name of the store is Kroger - K-R-O-G-E-R - go look at the front of the building. There is no "S" on the end. It is not on their grocery bags, their carts or their sales flyers. And I am not talking about people that use it in the possessive sense like "Kroger's meat is magically better and grants my wishes when I rub it like a lamp" or in the plural sense like "Of all the Krogers in the metro Atlanta area, mine is the best." I am specifically talking about folks that think the name of the store is Krogers - like "My local Krogers store carries Unicorn steaks."
OK, rant over...
