I saw Brian Lilly’s The Week’s End – Links for 03/27/10 and almost forgot I had been preparing my own during the week.

A nice blog with a lot of Scripture related stuff and personal writing:

I have trimmed the items in my RSS reader so I don’t have as many links to include in these posts. I hope you’re interested in at least one of these.

Photographs can help your blog look more appealing and help people know what your post is about at a glance. If you’re wondering where to get photos and which ones you can use legally, this article is very helpful:
How To Get Photography For Your Blog
You can also find free photos here at the link Free Photo in the sidebar under Categories (this will grow in time) and at Scripture in Pictures.

God’s Word translation (GW) has a new website.
HT: God Didn’t Say That via BBB (be sure to read those links also if you’re interested)

If you’re not familiar with it, Google has a blog search. It can be helpful to search for the name of your own blog and be notified via RSS when it’s mentioned. This way you can respond to them if necessary and know who’s linking to you. If they say bad things about you, you can tell them how much of a doofus they are.

Best of the Past: Trainer Tells All – What I Have Learned About Health and Fitness
My favorites:

  • Working out too much doesn’t lead to good results….hence most people are still struggling after years of hard effort and little return.
  • It’s never too late to build muscle….and is more important as we grow older.
  • The eat low-fat advice was the biggest health disaster in the last 30 years
  • The best performance enhancing thing I know of….is a cup of coffee 30min before a workout/playing sports. –I’ve (Jeff) been doing this for over two decades

Ben Witherington has some fantastic photos he took of an archaeological find of Ephesian houses.

Ten Technologies That Will Rock 2010
I apologize for the use of the word ‘rock’ in this way. Hopefully by the end of the decade it will have fallen out of use. We’ll see which of these technologies rock our world and which ones are whack.

Books:

I’d like to do a separate post listing all of the favorite books of 2009 posts. If you’ve done any or come across any please let me know.

Stan put together some brief quotes on why R.C. Sproul isn’t signing the Manhattan Declaration if you’re interested but don’t want to read the whole thing:
Why didn’t my pastor (R.C. Sproul) sign the Manhattan Declaration? at just after sunrise
And you can read why five of them wouldn’t sign.

Here is an interesting post and comments by Dr. Jim West that I like which is a little out of the norm and is about something he’s been interested in for over 20 years:
That’s Not Quite Correct, Ken

  • There is a new Firefox extension for reading RSS and Twitter feeds called Feedly. It’s a beta release so use with caution. I think this is one to watch for those who use Firefox.
  • Thunderbird 3 RC 1 is now out. This is an almost ready release of the next version of the Mozilla email program. I haven’t seen Lightning (Calendar) in this yet. See the Release Notes. Not many Add-ons are usable yet.
  • Amazon is offering $3 in MP3s until November 30.
  • Here are more people who aren’t in favor of The Manhattan Declaration including links to John MacArthur, James White and Frank Turk. I’m not sure why I’m spending time posting on it at all.
