1. There were so many folks back in late December of 1999 who thought we would never live to see January 2000. We are entering the second month of the ten years later. A decade has passed. We look back at that past decade and ask ourselves: “What has happened?” Let’s look at just a few things that occurred.
China became the third country to put a human being in orbit [14 Oct 2003]when 38-year-old Air Force officer Yang Liwei orbited 14 times in Shenzhou-5.
The Decade 2000-2010 included the International Space Station finally up and running, but with a much-reduced crew and little purpose. The Russian Mir space station was allowed to crash to Earth (

Saddam Hussein and his sons Uday and Qusay surrender and leave Iraq within 48

No more love in the afternoon: This has been an extraordinarily bad decade for soap operas. While the death knell for the long-standing daytime drama began with the 1999 cancellation of NBC’s Another World, the genre keeps taking hits in ratings, relevance and numbers. Relative newbie Passions, with its witches and talking dolls, took a powder in 2007, followed by the death of CBS’ Guiding Light, the oldest serial drama, in 2009. And recently, CBS announced that As the World Turns will end a 54-year run in 2010. Blame shifting viewing habits, myriad choices on cable, DVRs all you want, but in trying to appeal to new viewers with shaky cameras, mob violence and flashiness, soaps forgot all about the love. We went through the fiasco of Jay Leno turning over the reins of the Tonight Show to Conan O’Brien and in 2010 we see the reverse happening.
Reality shows as life and career rehab: Once upon a time, celebrities would have volunteered to reverse their own plastic surgery with a rusty knitting needle before they’d admit that maybe their careers, love lives and facial elasticity weren’t what they used to be. But now, if it’ll get them back in the limelight, stars of recent yesteryear are willing to admit that they’re fat (Celebrity Fit Club), players (Scott Baio Is 45 and Single, Rock of Love With Brett Michaels), broke (Broke and Famous starring Willie Aames) or drunk (Celebrity Rehab). I guess it’s better than being forgotten about. I guess.
Noted deaths: Ted
The population of the world reached 6,768,167,712 and the three most populous nations are China at 1,338,612968 and India at 1,156,897,766 and the third most populous country in the world is the United States with 307,212,123 (as of 2009 per the World Almanac and Book of Facts 2010).
There were so many other things that occurred: the auto and bank bailouts, the swine flu problem, terrorism and on and on. But we made it through. It is such a blessing to realize that there is a Supreme Being Who still sits on the throne and makes all the calls! I am so thankful that our God in Heaven hasn’t forgotten us! Aren’t you?
2. Laugh a little:
Jack Benny likes to credit his father with a gem of musical criticism. Back in
A guy applies for a job with a clothing store. He tells the manager “I really need this job. Please give me a chance. I can sell anything.” The manager says, “Let’s see how good you are.” He shows the guy a suit so ugly that it has been in stock for years. Nobody could sell it. He tells the salesman, “If you sell this suit, you’ve got the job.” The guy goes to work, and the manager goes out for lunch. When the manager returns, the new salesman, with his clothes all torn and bloody, tells him, “I sold the suit.” The manger is absolutely elated, but noticing the condition the guy’s clothes are in, the manager asks, “Did you have a lot of resistance from the customer?” The guy says, “No, I didn’t have any trouble from the customer, but I got some major resistance from his Seeing Eye dog.”
The other night a wife asked her husband, “Do you feel that the excitement has gone out of our marriage?” He said, “I’ll discuss it with you during the next commercial.”
3. Thought for the month:
When one door closes another door opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the ones which open for us.
-Alexander Graham Bell
