Major graphics flaw threatens Windows PCs - According to an article at, there's a security flaw in the way Internet Explorer, Windows XP, and several other Microsoft programs handle JPG images. According to the article, an attacker could "create an image file that would run a malicious program on a victim's computer as soon as the file is viewed." Pretty scary, considering almost every web page that has a photograph uses the JPG format, meaning that just looking at a photograph could allow someone access to your computer.

Read the entire article and check your computer to see if there's something that needs updating.

POLITICIANS WANT MADONNA BANNED FROM EGYPT - Campaigners are trying to get MADONNA banned from visiting Egypt, because of her devotion to the Kabbalah. Politicians in the country have asked the government to refuse Madonna any visas into the Muslim country because of her recent pilgrimage to Israel to celebrate the Jewish New Year with other followers of the mystical branch of Judaism. The Egyptian newspaper ALBAWABA says, ''On a similar note, Arab parliament member, AHMAD AL TAIBI, in the Israeli Knesset, turned down an invitation from Madonna to an event she held after she showed inconsideration for the sufferings of Palestinians, especially children, under the occupation of Israeli soldiers. ''Ahmad had stressed that he wished the singer would try and learn from other international stars like RICHARD GERE and JULIE CHRISTIE who came to the occupied lands and showed their support for the suffering of Palestinians.''

LOST PINK FLOYD DOCUMENTARY FOUND - A short film documenting the final days of PINK FLOYD, which was believed to be lost, has been discovered in a filmmaker's personal archives.

"I believe in you, my soul..." from Song of Myself, Walt Whitman

September 27, 2004

David Henry Thoreau, most famous for his philosophy of "Simplify, simplify," lived his own dream for only a few years. Traveling to Walden Pond where he wrote his most profound works, he later obsessed over it for seven years until it was in his opinion perfect. Perhaps this obsession is what led to his own loss of the enlightened state that he sought for so long.

Walt Whitman's greatest work, "Son of Myself" gives the impression of a highly enlightened man in touch with the infinite Truth, but his later works depict a man who has found but not held on to, the absolute Truth.

Paul Hourihan dissects the lives of these two men with a deep spiritual understanding, exposing them for the lost souls that they were. Although great writers and revered philosophers, both died after long periods of attempting to once again regain that feeling of absolute enlightenment that was once theirs. Samples of their works are sprinkled throughout, tempting the reader to do their own research.

Written in true literary style, yet in layman's terms as readers will find many of Hourihan's works, the author delves into the personalities, lives and successes of these two great men. This reviewer found it a fascinating read, being a fan of both. Illuminating, informative and insightful, highly recommended.

Author, Paul Hourihan earned his doctorate in English literature from Boston University. During the course of his life he studied the world's spiritual traditions, compelling him to publish his works. This is only one of the many spiritual works of Paul Houihan.

There is something odd about Box City and its surrounding landscape

September 28, 2004

Brit Chambers, a human, as well as a Werecreature Consultant finds herself in a mating ritual and maiden to her best friend Shayla. Shayla must prove her worthiness in order to mate with a clan warrior and as a candidate she offers the powerful vampire Daison, Lord of the Weretigers, a simple gift.

Hand in hand, Magda the Enchantress and Brit approach. Brit holding Shayla's offering: a single long stem red rose, a symbol of human blood. Emotions suddenly flare when it is unveiled that the rose is not the actual gift, but Brit herself! Brit's life is turned upside down when she opts to save her friends.

Brit reluctantly concedes to the offering, now making her the property of Lord Daison. Her greatest fear is whether he will drain her of the precious life sustaining fluid that courses through her veins. Though none of this impedes the headstrong Brit from conducting business as usual. During daylight hours she proceeds towards her appointment with Pandor Evans who is on the Human Power Committee. Evans wants to hire Brit to acquire information about the Sacred Scepters.

The legend: He who holds the scepters acquires their power. The power to rid the world of magic! But Evans is not the only one who searches for them, so does Diablo. Without hesitation Brit takes the job well aware of Diablo's murderous profile.

A treacherous journey through underground rail stations, heartbreak of death, and the sweet fragrance of victory in life await readers of Vintage Blood and the Sacred Scepters. A. B. Wallace has done an exceptional job of storytelling and bringing terrifying mythical creatures to life. This novel will make a great addition to the avid readers library collection!

America After Siege: Roadmap to Victory After 9/11 by Dr. Elaine I. Duval

A strategy for coping with the pain caused by the events of 9/11

September 28, 2004

Dr. Elaine I. Duval has written this book to aid those who are still scarred by the horrific events of September 11, 2001. Many of us have heard the calming words and reassurances of our spiritual and political leaders as the country existed for a short time blanketed by American flags and patriotic assemblies. The events of 9/11 became a call to arms as our country retaliated by attacking those that have caused us such pain and terror. We are now enthralled in a war spawned by this cowardly act and now more blood is spilling. Many of us feel that the country is spiraling towards a decay that cannot be stopped. In the authors own description we are now in a broken state and this brokenness can be repaired through God.

Many have moved past 9/11 and focus intently on the combat in the Middle East. We want to see justice and those responsible punished for their acts. As this broken country struggles to rebound from 9/11 many are pointing fingers with the hopes that blaming someone else will serve as a form of retribution. This surreal event - the tragic morning on September 11, 2001 will never leave our minds and will always be in our hearts - but there is a way to heal.

We must not blame God for this tragedy. Instead, we must stand tall and work harder at strengthening our resolve to honor and respect each other. We are given a chance to rebuild our lives and make it better. Dr. Duval compares our country to Christ and the pain and death that he overcame. He was "broken" beyond repair however, he was resurrected and his words and love continues to comfort those in need of spiritual healing.

I can recall that tragic day and the days that followed. People were kind to each other as we shared in the hurt and pain. Every house displayed the American Flag proudly and the "Proud to be an American" bumper stickers adorned every vehicle. Individual differences did not matter, 9/11 affected many countries in different ways and we enjoyed a brotherhood that you rarely see today. For a moment, just a moment, the tragedy created a society where crime rates dropped, people were kind to each other and we comforted anyone in need of comfort. As time went by, that all dissolved and continues to fade away.

"America After Siege: Roadmap to Victory After 9/11" should be read as you read the bible or whatever book represents your faith. America has been given a chance to be reborn out of the ashes of 9/11. Together we can go forward and live the lives as dictated by God, Allah or whatever deity you choose to worship

This book will open up a train of thought and internal reflection that will vary depending on the person reading these words. Instead of reviewing this book and relaying the poetry and words that I've read, I have chosen to digest these words and make them a part of myself. I challenge myself to return to the brotherhood and Christianity that enveloped my being after 9/11. I have not forgotten the events but I now remind myself of the calm that followed the storm prior to our quest for justice. The battle will continue to rage and those who do not fight, as instruments of war can become instruments of faith.

Even if you believe that you have "healed" emotionally after 9/11, read this book and you will be enlightened. Dr. Duval's simple words represent complex feelings and emotions that are necessary to embrace as we move forward with our lives. Read this book and share it with others. There is a message to spread and that message starts with you...
