Sunday, September 18th open thread: ‘Prayers for Rain’
Here is the open thread for Sunday, September 18th. Please feel free to post links to interesting articles and to discuss whatever issues arise during the course of the day. Nothing is off-topic here.
Last week we discussed 8 stories, did you miss any of them? If so there is an easy way to make sure it does not happen again. I understand that all of you are busy and cannot always find the time to check the blog for updates so why not subscribe to America’s Watchtower and receive email updates whenever I write a new post? That is the easiest way to follow the blog to ensure you never miss another post.
In addition to subscribing you can also follow America’s Watchtower on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the links on the right. But you will get more than that for I often post links to articles I probably will not be writing about so it is a great way to keep up with what is happening.
The Twitter widget in the sidebar is fully interactive. This widget updates my tweets in real time and allows you to respond to or retweet my tweets right from the blog. It also allows you to tweet me right from America’s Watchtower. How cool is that! If you do not have a Twitter account what better reason do you need to sign up for one!
Most of you probably do not know this but here in New England we are facing extreme drought conditions. Needless to say, people all over the area are having problems with their wells, so many in fact that the local high school has opened up its facilities to the public for anyone who wants to take a shower. We had our own scare last weekend but luckily for us it turned out to be a problem with the pressure switch and we got our water back after a visit by the well guy on Tuesday night. We are still holding our breath every time we run the water that our well will hold out until we get some rain. So for now we are praying for rain and putting our trust in the Living Water.
