Trib Updates

This is a weekly series that will include a brief summary of the latest articles that have been published on The Tribulation Times Herald-Exhorter.  Hopefully, this will encourage you to go check out some truly outstanding articles that have been published by a number of truly outstanding authors.  Moreover, I hope this will also encourage you to want to become a contributing member/author, as well.  The “Hear Ye!  Hear Ye!” site explanation near the top of the side-bar should answer many of your questions.  Yes, this series also included an “SOS! (Spam On Saturdays)”  segment before, but it just wasn’t working for me.  Therefore, that will be replaced by a republishing of one of the Trib articles.

[“Dal Maxvill”] is about another example of our Heavenly Father speaking to me about things that most would think that He would have no interest in.

[ESPN Additions] is a new series featuring truly great ESPN commercials.

[WhiteHeart Wednesday] contains a video and the lyrics for Bye, Bye Babyon]

[5-Hour Energy Fraud?] points out what the commercial is not actually saying.

[Protecting Public Piety] contains some thoughts on the so-called Missouri Prayer Amendment.

Since I have not been given much of a life, I watch an awful lot of television, which includes an awful lot of commercials.  Now, a GOOD ad is one that holds my attention and makes me want to at least learn more about the product or service it is for.  A BAD ad is one that quickly becomes nothing more than background noise when it cannot be skipped over.  UGLY ads are much worse.  For not only do they make we want to never see them again, they make me want to never have anything to do with the company that paid for them to be produced.  Of course, you may feel differently, but I sure wouldn’t say much about it around anyone with a lick of sense.  For I am, after all, an expert on such things—albeit only in my own mind!

  1. Gosh Jerry,
    I thought British ads were bad! We usually put ours on 'mute', but I do like ads like the 'polo' car one about the father and his daughter as she grows up, lovely singing, and I like ones with a bit of clever wit in them. I too get put off the company by a bad commercial, and some commercials are so full of silly, annoying content that you can't really take in what the product is anyway.

  2. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Brenda!!! Every once in a while, I will receive a thought about the reason why I do not appreciate many of the ads these days is on account of me being too old and out of it, which is always combined with a memory of really enjoying something that my dad hated. Such thoughts are immediately identified as coming from the dark side and summarily dismissed as utter nonsense, of course.

  3. Now see I find the first one annoying. I do wholeheartedly agree with you on the last one though. That is just downright stupid

  4. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!! I am fairly sure that the first one would be a whole lot more entertaining to you if you were a big football fan. I imagine Wade finds it hilarious.


Since the Blogger spam filter has been found sorely lacking lately, I will start moderating comments. Be assured that I am only interested in deleting spam. So, if you feel a need to take me to task over something—even anonymously, go ahead and let 'er rip, and I will publish it as soon as I can.
