I thought it would be fun to see how you would answer

Todays Question:

If you remember the TV show "Bewitched" and you could blink your eyes and pop into a place, where would you "pop"


Today in history:
June 11, 1905 Penns Railroad debuts fastest train in world (NY-Chicago in 18 hrs) - ok you know I had to check to see how long it now takes
rofl 103 years later it takes 18hr 45mn heres the actual schedule
departs - 49 Lake Shore Limited New York, NY- Penn Station4:00 pm
11-JUN-08
arrives - Chicago, IL Union Station 9:45 am 12-JUN-08 18h 45m
BTW it takes 20 hrs 40 mn for the return trip

June 11, 1982 Movie "ET the Extra-Terrestrial" released

and from the strange songs in history list :

June 11, 1977 "Ain't Gonna Bump No More (With No Fat Woman)" by Joe Tex hits #12
June 11, 1977 "Dance and Shake Your Tambourine" by Universal Robot Band peaks at #93

Word of the day:
imbroglio \im-BROHL-yoh\, noun:
1. A complicated and embarrassing state of things.
2. A confused or complicated disagreement or misunderstanding.
3. A confused mass; a tangle.

Today is:
National German Chocolate Cake Day
and
National Hug Holiday
I am afraid if I could pop in and out, I would cause such an imbroglio in the supernatural highway, the Twitch authority would revoke my twitcher. This month I need to be in Southern California for a study, also I have had to be in Western NC for work three times in the last 30 days, and need to be in PA for Job next week. I am also trying to work in a meeting in Atlanta this month, and yesterday was asked to try and plan a trip to China to sign a contract. I add that to the normal office work, and trips to customers, vendors, political contacts plus my family needs and I am sure I would cause a twitch road jam. Not any time for cake today

Either way, my kids and I were talking the other day about how much fun we had in Disneyworld in November so I would definately blink or wiggle all of us there.

I wouldn't mind popping, or blinking myself back 2000 years ago to the Holy Land of Israel, and meet my Savior, the Son Of The Living God, who gave himself for all of us, the One and Only, Yeshua/Jesus of Nazareth.

I would also pop myself into Boston and Newark airports on the morning of September 11th, 2001, and keep those 19 terrorists from boarding their flights, and expose their sinister plot that changed our nation forever, and more importantly, prevent the loss of nearly 3000 precious lives.

Thumbs up Time not place

Todays Question:

Id like to pop back in time when things were slower, easier and far more peaceful then today. Its not so much a place and it is a time to pop into. Getting back to the 50s and 60s sure is better then the now.
