Preparing to board the airplane my fears run wide, What danger might some sinister stranger hide? Am I spiritually prepared to enter eternity today? For Divine safety and salvation I fervently pray. I hurriedly eat an overpriced and average meal, Resting from the strain of walking on my heal. Shuffling past dozens of empty plane seats, Wishing I could keep my feet on level streets. A turbulence is like an earthquake in the air, And I’m so glad I’m under a loving God’s care. Flying brings me personally closer to heaven, With memories today of September eleven. While my ears hurt during the shaky descent, I hope my faith in God is as strong as cement. For as I return quite safely to the good earth, Before me lies a vision of tremendous worth. By Alan T. Stokes November 19, 2001 Note: Written on my first plane ride after 9/11/01 as I was headed to Orlando, Florida.

Here are two tips for reducing one's exposure to potentially dangerous cell phone radiation.
- Use ear buds when talking on the phone instead of holding the phone close to one's ear (Note: The speaker mode works too but that may annoy others and will make the conversation not so private).
- Keep the phone at least 3 feet away from your head at night (Note: This helps make it a more effective alarm clock too, if you have to actually get out of bed).
