To name a few things that lasted for 40 days — during the time of Noah, it rained for 40 days and nights (Genesis 7:12); Moses met with God on the mountain for 40 days twice, first to obtain instructions for building the tabernacle and then to receive the 10 commandments (Exodus 24:18 and 34:28); the spies explored the land of Canaan for 40 days (Numbers 13:25); Goliath taunted the Israelites for 40 days until David put an end to him (1 Samuel 17:16); one meal gave Elijah enough strength to sustain him for 40 days (1 Kings 19:8); the city of Nineveh was given 40 days to repent (Jonah 3:4); Jesus fasted and was tempted by the devil for 40 days (Luke 4:2); after Jesus’ resurrection, He appeared on earth for a period of 40 days before ascending into heaven (Acts 1:3).
Tired of getting email solicitations from Nigerian princes and Romanian bank presidents promising you millions of dollars if you will only give them your birthday, your Social Security number and bank account information?

Of course, whether you’re navigating the dark corridors of a “haunted house” or just dealing with the “creepy” characters coming to your door demanding candy, you’re probably not too fearful of the sights of the season. But as you go through life, you’ll want to avoid some things that really are scary — such as these investment moves:

She had a family member looking to get rid of an American Bulldog and the timing seemed like fate, but looking back Milich had no idea what fate had in store.

The latest piece of extortion by the Republican House over the budget is getting scathing reviews all across the political spectrum. While it easy to blame the tea party for this nonsense the fact is that a substantial portion of the American electorate stubbornly cling to the notion that the intransigence it takes to ruin the nation will somehow save it.
