Free Desktop Picture! — "PRO LIFE" with Baby's Feet

Today I present the second in a series (to be released over a long time... I don't know how many I will do) of totally awesome Desktop Pictures/Wallpapers/Backgrounds by Jeff®. Today's picture, weighing in at 1024x768 pixels (for maximum compatibility) in the JPEG format (so both Mac and PC users can use it), was created entirely from Photoshop CS, using a scanned (and enhanced) picture of my little sister's feet at the time of her birth (three months premature, yet born and still thriving today!) and some creative prowess. I made the words 'PRO' and 'LIFE' a little faded so it's almost a subliminal message (simple because I thought that seemed cool).

SW Episode III, Jeff's Computer Support, More...

As I stated last night, I watched Star Wars Episode III: The Revenge of the Sith. It was well worth seeing, and I especially liked the way the relationships between Obi Wan and Anakin and Senator Palpatine and Anakin were developed (a much better job than I had expected). One of the main problems I thought would plague this film, that of tying up all the loose ends between Episodes II and IV, was dealt with very well. But I would not suggest allowing children under the age of 12 or 13 to see this movie, as there is a bit of violence and gore, especially in one or two scenes involving Anakin/Vader. Better to let the kids see the other Episodes first. Thankfully, Jar Jar Binks only appeared briefly twice in this third/sixth/last Star Wars movie.

Lots Going On; Star Wars III Tomorrow!

This week has been a blur so far, and I don't expect anything to change. From the time I wake up to the time I go to bed, I have things to do! I'm still working on setting up my computer repair/technical support business (I even have a preliminary website up!). Today I was sadly disappointed as my former high school's volleyball team was defeated in the State Semifinal volleyball match, but I was elated to shoot a 'birdie' at Eagle Springs golf course earlier in the day. Soon I might find time to write a nice, informative blog entry... but for now, I'll be preparing to watch Star Wars Episode III tomorrow with some seminarian friends!

Planned Parenthood: When a Baby's Not a Baby

I was completely dumbfounded when I read the following statements from Planned Parenthood's website (hat tips to The Dawn Patrol and LifeSite):

"When does being a person begin?" Most medical authorities and Planned Parenthood agree that it starts when a baby takes its first breath...

She [chooses what to do with her 'pregnancy'] based on her own needs, ethics, and religious belief about when being a person begins. It would be wrong to force her to observe someone else's religious belief.

This is sickening.

Imposing religious beliefs?

This ain't a religious belief. This is cold, hard fact. There's a human person inside that womb.
