Every morning for the past 6 years I have been at the front seat of my wife’s hair-do. I mean literally. Jenny has this particular routine that she has perfected throughout her entire life that she goes through every single morning. Here it is – wakes up – has cereal for breakfast and reads — takes supplements — goes to the toilet (reads while in there) — showers — blow dries her hair  — does her make-up — done.

Many of my generation can only recite parts of the Ten Commandments and most probably they heard about the Ten Commandments from a secondary source. Like from an old guy who wasn’t even sure himself or peers who are trying to figure it out. You will be hard pressed to find people in my generation that can recite the Ten Commandments in its entirety. It will be like looking for a needle in a haystack. Much of it is also caused by biblical illiteracy. Not many of my generation know what is in the bible.
