10th Anniversary Giveaway!

On April 30th, it will be ten years since the "W2LJ - QRP - Do More With Less" blog was born.

In appreciation for all who read this blog, I am going to give something away to one lucky reader. I have a new, mint condition, unused, complete sheet of fifty United States Amateur Radio stamps, issued in 1964 on the 50th Anniversary of the ARRL - Scott #1260. I am going to have the sheet matted and framed - ready for display on some deserving shack wall. All I ask is that you send an e-mail to w2lj@arrl.net - entitled "Blog Anniversary Giveaway". Include your name, call sign and mailing address.

Any Amateur Radio op worldwide can enter. I will package and ship the framed stamps to any destination that the United States Post Office will accept.

The names and call signs will be loaded into a software program such as RandomPicker on April 30th and a winner will be determined. The winner will be announced here, and then the framed stamps will be posted.

Good luck, and thank you for reading!

Good Friday

Hi Larry, as a child, when I read the gospel I cried when I read about the suffering of Jesus Christ. Later on when I saw the movie 'The Passion of Christ' in the cinema, I must cry again. On Good Friday I think always about the suffering of Christ. 73 Paul

What an awesome picture, Larry. Even better is the One it represents. Did you catch the news where someone wanted to changed the name from Good Friday to Spring Holiday? One of these days...

Floyd,

Yeah, I caught that. How come everyone is worried about offending people because of the name of a Christian Holy Day? I'm sure that if I moved to Israel, no one would give a rat's patoot if the name Passover "offended" me (it doesn't) or if I moved to Saudi Arabia if the name Ramadan "offended" me (it doesn't).

Seems like too many people in the US are overanxious to be offended.

I just don't get it.
