Need an answered prayer?

JMJ Do you have a prayer request? A special need?  Well, I spent all night placing a live webcam to Lourdes, France on my website, including a little mailbox to their prayer request email.  All kinds of weird computer problems kept cropping up, and I kept offering them up as a prayer, which did help to keep me from being annoyed.  Then...

Interracial Dating

I had originally posted the following on my go-to site www.MIAMIurbanlife.com as a forum discussion after being selected to be a discussion panelist for a live community panel following an off-Broadway show for next week.While my main goal is to see the thoughts and experiences of my local community at first, I figured I would expand the discussion to the open web hoping some would be brave enough to share.

I’ve been avoiding The Bachelor this season. Jake Pavelka, the 31-year-old commercial pilot from Texas seems like a nice guy and all, but the overly sexy promos have left me wondering, where are they getting these girls? The trailer park? ...more

Men101

I'm your typical bachelor......Good looking, well built with light eyes, intelligent, and capable of talking a cat off a fish truck...Nevertheless, the intention of this blog is not to come off as an arrogant prick...Rather, to provide insight for women as to why men do, act, think, say and erect the way they do....I feel my past experiences, whether a relationship, my interfering in one, or just plain whoring around serve as proper credentials to feed the curiosity that torments women across the world on a minute-to-minute basis during their conquest to discovering "The One"... ...more

FRUSTRATIONS

Relationships are already challenging, let alone all of the things that come along with them. Such as when to introdcue them to your family, when to move in together, how much time you should or should not spend with eachother, when to have sex for the first time...and of course the big "L Word"... your thinking of the word love right?...more

The Self-Pity Trilogy

I have recently been receiving daily depressing emails from a family member. I’m not sure what the point is as they contain things like, “You are so lucky that you have no life and that you are alone…”, “I have canceled Christmas”, “I will just sit here and wait to die!”…um…nice!...more
