Voice Recognition

  I gave voice recognition technology a shot recently via voicemail-to-text on my phone. In a word, it was comical. Rarely was the voice message transcribed accurately.  It was particularly awful with my mother.  Hers is a pleasing, mid-toned feminine voice thick with Southern drawl and dialect, such as "y'all" and "fixin' to". I don't know what the problem was, but her messages were mashed into incomprehensible babble. The technology seemed not to know what to do with Mom's voice, or language even.  Sadly, this isn't the first time such a thing has happened with a woman's vocal expression....more

What is there to say about 9/11?

Remembering 9/11 is still so close yet 10 yrs away from us now.  There were memorable services at churches, locally and televised.  We all have a story about how we first heard and all that happened after that first plane hit the first tower.  I had dropped off my daughter at school and returned home.  On tv, they showed the first tower being hit....no one could predict the chain of disaster yet to follow.  Call my husband in his car then saw the second plane hit!  Oh my!  What is happening?  We did not know how horrific  this day would be. ...more

I'm sure I've written about my friends before, but I want to introduce you to another BFF. This is a boy BFF so let's just call him Ed (made-up name)Last night, I decided to do something I've never done and pray/meditate for 30 minutes straight. I gave it my best shot, but I really just ran out of things to say :-( anyway, I did manage to pray for God to help me deal with the tough stuff I'd gone through during the week, 5 minutes later after I saId Amen, guess who called? ...more

Divine supply and demand

I started a group and a buisness called “Pray and love.” It is about prayer and loving people treating them the way you would want to be treated. In my mind and as a christian scientist this is what I believe if we love people and pray then we can solve so many problems. But, this has to be a global thing. I will be writing articles related to this topic and I also have set up websites related to this....more

Spirituality Explained

Understanding SpiritualityPeople approach and define the term spirituality very differently depending on their background and beliefs.  For instance, for many people the word has a distinct religious connotation, while for others it may express something apart from or beyond the bounds of religion.  From my perspective, experience, and research, I’ve found that spirituality lies somewhere between religious concepts and humanity’s innate spirit....more
