The Nesting Eagles at Berry College

Today on DIT we are going to visit an awesome web cam of Bald Eagles nesting with two eggs.

Seems that the Eagle parents have returned to a location they have visited previously and cameras were set up in anticipation of their return.

Were? and How can I see this?  you ask

The Eagles are nesting at Berry College in Rome, Georgia.

Currently the mother Eagle is sitting in the nest with two still unhatched eggs.

The eggs were produced on January 3, so expect hatching between February 7 and 10.

Who is Christopher? you ask.

Hymn: Are you washed in the Blood

Yesterday we learned why blood is so important to obtain Salvation and forgiveness of sins.

The Hymn Today builds upon that concept and further explains

why a person must be washed in the blood of the Lord God Jesus Christ --

who provided His sinless perfect blood sacrifice and death to pay the penalty for your sins and mine.

Was there really a Noah's Ark and Flood?

Yesterday we discovered the way Dinosaur tracks that are found in rocks all over the earth could have been made.

and they are skeptical about how many animals could have been on the ark

and more.

Today's link will provide answers to these questions and more.

How to prevent and treat frostbite

It's winter !

No kidding !! you say.

It's January so we expect winter.

Yes, true - but this year even in places (such as Florida, S.C. etc.) the weather has been seriously cold -- colder than usual and for a longer time than usual.

So what to do?

Well, folks are dripping water from water faucets to keep their pipes from freezing.

But what should folks do to keep themselves from freezing (getting frostbite).

Today's very informative link will explain.

This is definitely a 'must watch'.

What did T-Rex really eat?

T-Rex is 'short' for the famous dinosaur Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Kids love him and flock to museums to see his skeletons.

They also have toys of him and read books and watch movies in which he is a star and a 'hero'.

Most of the books, movies, articles, videos, toys, etc depict T-Rex as being a big bad mean dinosaur that ate other animals, dinosaurs, people, and anything he wanted to eat.

But, is this true?

Was T-Rex only a meat eater?


What did T-Rex really eat?

The brief article to which we are linking today has some very interesting information on that subject.

An Interesting Harris Poll

There are polls and then there are polls.

But Harris Polls always command the attention of Poll observers.

And the Harris Poll to which we are linking to day, though published a few years ago, is very important and definitely commands attention.


Because it has uncovered the fact that

              "Belief in God declines
               Belief in Darwin's theory of evolution rises"


This definitely helps explain what is happening in the USA and around the world --

And is a must read.

You will want to share this information with your SS Class, Bible Study Class, and other groups.

HERE'S THE LINK to the Harris poll re American's Belief in God, Miracles, and Heaven declines.

Where are you from?

A while back -- a group of us were sitting around chatting

and a couple of folks said they had recently taken an online test that was a hoot.

How a hoot? you ask.

Well, it seems that this test will tell you where you are from.

It has to do with things you say and the way you say them.

It is the result of a Harvard linguistic study.

Being very skeptical about its validity the rest of us in the room broke down, went online, and took the test.

And guess what -- it was correct.

It even pegged me to the town where I live.

Who would have thought.

So, if you would like to try this out also

HERE'S THE LINK to the dialect quiz -- does the way you speak tell where you are from

Your New Year's Diet Resolutions

Are you kidding? Resolutions? Do folks still make them?

Yes, I know, when younger I, too, would make a lonnnnng list of resolutions -- such as: go on a diet, exercise more, read the Bible more, etc. etc. etc.

But, as you have probably noticed when you did likewise, that after a few days, weeks, or months (depending on the resolution), they all seemed to drop away.

Your list got lost. The motivation was gone. The weight had crept back up, the fee to join the exercise club was wasted (well, I never joined an exercise club but many folks do), the daily walking around the block ended, and .... well, you get the idea.

So, the question for today is: are you going to make any resolutions for 2010?

If you are, do it NOW.

And, if not, Why Not?

And as you make those resolutions, remember:

“We have only one life,
it will soon be past,
only what is done for God will last.”

New Year's Resolutions begin again

It is another New Year.

Which means it is time to once again make and begin New Year’s Resolutions.

Because recently we received an email from Bible Study Tools dot Com telling of  great study tools they have available for free.

These include Bible Reading Plans, many on-line versions of the Bible, dictionaries, concordances, and more.

Another Year Begins

Wow, it is already that time of the year again --The time when the old year ends and a new year begins.

And, as this is being uploaded to the web, the famous Times Square New Year’s Eve ball has just dropped. And 2018 has begun !

Some people ignore the event and just sleep through it.


Many folks saw the new year “in” while in prayer.

Others celebrate the coming of the new year in crazed and drunken parties.

Still others will be at home alone or with family or friends or at calmer parties but stop to watch via TV the Ball Drop in Times Square.

So -- bottom line

No matter how you saw the new year 'in'

Our greeting to you from Daily Interesting Things is
