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.

[Carnival Clowns] has some thoughts about the recent Carnival Triumph nightmare.

[Cramer and Cummins] has me admitting that my enthusiasm for CNBC programming is waning.

[ESPN Additions] shows what can happen when a king leaves his throne unguarded.

[WhiteHeart Wednesday] contains a video and the lyrics for Heaven of My Heart.

According to [] and several other local news outlets, the “stuff” is starting to hit the proverbial fan over [Springfield Brewing Company] posting on their Facebook page: "Yesterday scientists revealed that beer contains small traces of female hormones. To prove their theory, the scientists fed 100 men 12 pints of beer and observed that 100% of them gained weight, talked excessively without making sense, became emotional, and couldn't drive. No further testing is planned."  As if that was not enough, the business offered in reply to the building outrage: "We apologize if this offended you- purely meant as a light-hearted joke," a SBC employee typed on behalf of the business. "Contrary to popular belief, this post was written and approved by three women. We understand that humor is a very fluid thing, and varies person to person. Take this as a joke, and nothing more."

Umm, I can see where the “joke” might garner some laughs at a late night comedy club as part of a stand-up set by someone bemoaning the virtues of drinking, but how can it be considered funny by the makers of beer that they are trying to sell for a living?  For the offense to women in general is obvious, and what self-deluded manly man is going to want to be seen drinking an [11 Point] while his buddies are wondering out loud if he might be trying to get in touch with his feminine side?

So, does this mean that the Springfield Brewing Company is run by some really fair and very happy people?  I had no idea that our community had become that progressive.

  1. Speaking of eyes- ha ha! what candy you bring forth for them! As for happy and progressive, hm, I shall wait and see that, it seems to be a debate in so many communities right now, and often we end up discouraged lately! But I was going to remain positive this morning! Smiles to you!

  2. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Karen!!! You are disgustingly cheerful much of the time--aren't you? (LOL?)
