1) high-muck-a-muck hii muk a muk (noun)
: somebody in a position of importance and authority who
behaves in an overbearing way

Mid-19th century. Origin uncertain: probably by folk
etymology from Chinook jargon hiyu muck-amuck, literally
"ten portions of choice whalemeat," by association with

Nobody liked the boss because he acted like such a high-

2) gramarye grammeree (noun)
: magic and enchantment (archaic)

Fourteenth century. From Anglo-Norman gramarie "Latin
grammar," a variant of Old French gramaire.

The children were amazed by the gramarye of the circus.


A UNC grad was driving through the country when he spotted a horse
standing in a field. He was quite taken with the animal and so pulled
over to ask the farmer if it was for sale.

"Afraid not," said the farmer.

"I'll give you a thousand bucks!" said the UNC grad.

"I can't sell you that horse. He don't look too good," replied the

"I know horses and he looks fine. I'll give you two thousand!"

"Well, all right, if you want him so bad."

The next day, the man returned the horse, screaming that he had been
taken advantage of. "You sold me a blind horse!"

"Well," said the farmer, "I told you he didn't look too good."


You know you're a UNC grad when you think fast food
is hitting a deer at 65 mph.


In the play Julius Caesar William Shakespeare muses, "You are not wood,
you are not stones, but men." For some reason, emotions are simply
expectations we have of one another. Even amidst brief exchanges with
strangers, we would be caught off guard by a totally callous individual;
we would find an emotionless person somewhat disturbing. The world was
appalled and infuriated when Timothy McVeigh described with stone cold
expression the actions he took to carry out his plans to destroy the
Oklahoma City Federal building. We seem to wholeheartedly sense that a
human who can sever their emotions like that is behaving in a way that is
something less than human.

Quite simply, we are emotional beings. It is equally evident that we are
personal beings—lives created to know and be known. Perhaps this reality
hints at something much deeper; there is a reason we were made to feel.

In understanding the human capacity for emotion, Ravi Zacharias often
suggests we look first at the presence and purpose of feeling in
physiological realms. If you burn your finger or break your arm, you will
immediately notice swelling and redness. Yet, beyond the blisters or
bruises, there is a sensitivity about the damaged spot that remains. We
are more gentle with an arm that has been hurt, and for good reason. The
sensitivity of a burned or wounded arm essentially tells us, "Protect this
area. Protect it, because if the damage continues, you will wound it in an
even greater way." Physiologically, that there is reason behind our
ability feel is unmistakable.

Many hold the false impression that leprosy causes the stricken individual
to lose limbs and damage body parts. In actuality, the disease itself does
not cause what happens to the body. Leprosy causes insensitivity. Lepers
lose fingers and limbs because without the sensitivity of pain to guide
them, tissues become damaged beyond repair.

What, then, happens when our emotions have lost their sensitivity? One
only has to look around to see this happening. Insensitivity disfigures reality.

Our feelings and emotions have inarguably been set within us to guide us.
It is altogether reasonable that they have been set within us by a personal
God who longs for our emotions to direct us toward Him. In the Scriptures,
God has presented the thoughts and hearts of men and women in history to
remind us that our emotions are indicators of a deeper reality, indicators
that rouse us to know Him, to remain sensitive to his presence. Listen to
the words of King David and hear the emotion in his voice:

“As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God?
My tears have been my food
day and night,
while men say to me all day long,
‘Where is your God?’
Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God” (Psalm 42:1-3).

David’s emotions were real, and he followed them to the very throne of
truth, where they were given context, hope, and meaning. “My soul is
downcast within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of the
Jordan, the heights of Hermon-from Mount Mizar. For deep calls to deep in
the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over
me” (42:5-7). David is remembered as a man after God's own heart. May
you and I be remembered likewise. Jill Carattini

"You will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria,
and to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1:8b)

It is a profound thought indeed to ponder the fact that every person I meet
today eventually will be in heaven or hell. It was this sobering thought
that led John R. Mott, a missionary statesman of the last century, to say, "
The Scriptures teach that if men are to be saved they must be saved through
Christ. . .To have the knowledge of Christ is to incur a responsibility to
everyone who has not."

Very briefly, there are these major religions in the world: Christianity, Islam,
and Mormonism. They all have at last one thing in common -- a message
from their God. For the Muslim it was a revelation to a man named Muhammad
from the angel Gabriel, and he recorded it as the Quran. For the Mormons it
was a revelation to a man named Joseph Smith from the angel Moroni, and he
recorded it as the Book of Mormon. For Christians, it is a message from God
through His followers through the ages, recorded as the Holy Bible. The
various records all have some events in common, but the founders of Islam
and Mormon are long dead and buried. The founder of Christianity was
crucified, dead, buried and then rose again and ascended into Heaven in the
sight of many witnesses.

Those religions share views of certain moral standards, the Ten
Commandments, etc., and even recognize a supreme being, God or Allah.
But they differ exceedingly in their concept of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
And that is where the ultimate conflict, the ultimate challenge occurs -- it
is essentially a battle between Christianity and the anti-Christian forces.

And that has been the program of the liberals, to attack every
manifestation of Christianity in the schools and in public places; to
eliminate traditional marriage and thereby the Christian family, and are now
attempting to limit ministers in Christian churches in their freedom to
preach from the Bible. The seriousness of this challenge cannot be
overestimated. The public vote in the immediate past election indictes that
the American people are ready, willing and able to rise to this challenge.

A man absolutely hated his wife's cat and decided to get rid
of him one day by driving him 20 blocks from his home and
leaving him at the park.

As he was getting home, the cat was walking up the driveway!

The next day he decided to drive the cat 40 blocks away. He
put the beast out of the car and quickly headed home.

Driving back up his driveway, there was the cat again!

He kept taking the cat further and further away but the cat
would always beat him home. At last he decided to drive
quite a few miles away--so he turned right, then left, past
the bridge, then right again and another right until he reached
what he thought was a safe distance from his home and
left the cat there.

Hours later the man calls home to his wife: "Hon, is the cat there?"

"Yes," the wife answers, "why do you ask?"

Frustrated, the man answered, "Can you please put him
on the phone? I'm lost and need directions"


I am trying here to prevent anyone from saying the really
foolish thing that people often say about Him [Jesus Christ]:
"I'm ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I
don't accept His claim to be God."

That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was
merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would
not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic --
on a level with a man who says he is a poached egg --
or else he would be the Devil of Hell.

You must make your choice. Either this Man was, and is,
the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse ....
You can shut Him up for fool, you can spit at Him and kill
Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him
Lord and God. But let us not come up with any patronizing
nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has
not left that option open to us. He did not intend to.

-- From Case for Christianity, by C.S. Lewis


An elderly gentlemen went in for his annual physical
exam. The doctor said, "You're in incredible shape.
How old are you again?" The man replied, "I am 78."

The doctor exclaimed, "Wow, 78. How do you stay so
healthy? You look like a 60 year old." The man explained,
"Well, my wife and I made a pact when we got married
that whenever she got mad she would go into the kitchen
and cool off and I would go outside to settle down."

"What does that have to do with it?" asked the doctor.
The man sighed, "I've pretty much lived an outdoor life."

There are several men in the locker room of a private club after

Suddenly a cell phone that was on one of the benches rings. A man
picks it up and the following conversation ensues:


"Honey, It's me. Are you at the club?"


"Great! I am at the mall 2 blocks from where you are. I saw a
beautiful mink coat... It is absolutely gorgeous!! Can I buy it?"

"What's the price?"

"Only $1,500.00"

"Well, OK, go ahead and get, if you like it that much..."

"Ahhh and I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the 2001
models. I saw one I really liked. I spoke with the salesman and he
gave me a really good price ... and since we need to exchange the BMW
that we bought last year..."

"What price did he quote you?"

"Only $60,000..."

"OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."

"Great! Before we hang up, something else..."


"It might look like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank account
and... I stopped by the real estate agent this morning and I saw the
house we had looked at last year. It's on sale!! Remember? The one
with a pool, English Garden, acre of park area, beachfront

"How much are they asking?"

"Only $750,000... a magnificent price, and I see that we have that
much in the bank to cover..."

"Well, than go ahead and buy it, but just bid $720,000. OK?"

"OK, sweetie... Thanks! I'll see you later!! I love you!!!"

"Bye... I do too..."

The man hangs up, closes the phone's flap and raises his hand while
holding the phone and asks to all those present: "Does anyone know
who this phone belongs to?"

Verse of the Day

* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
