Making money on the net

From Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time comic

Didn't think it was possible to make money on the net but recently someone offered to send me $50 to stick their banner on the Fun with Finance blog, plus 30¢ - 50¢ per click. All payments made monthly via PayPal.

Did I take it up? No.

Started the blogs for fun and not looking to make money, besides I wouldn't be able to abuse anyone would I, when I'm on a good behaviour bond!

You can't be a Christian...

... and practice Tai chi or Yoga. Reverend Viv Morse from Wynyard Baptist Church took offense at a senior citizens' Tai Chi class.

"Half of Tai Chi is Taoism and Zen Buddhism, which is in total contrast to what we as a Christian church believe in." Rev Morse said.

He goes on to say "It's about a type of meditation, and what they call search for enlightenment, where you go into things like yoga do (yoga do) or, like in the martial arts, meditations where you just emptied your mind and let it go wherever it wanted to.

Well that stands in opposition to Christianity, which says we are to be in control of our faculties."

Nice... bring back the inquisition!
