***4-Acre Spider Web??!!
How many spiders does it take to creep you out? 10? 100? How many spiders make an “extreme spider situation”?

It was mostly about storing up treasures in heaven rather than earthly wealth, but the biggest takeaway for me was trusting the Lord for today, and not worrying so much about tomorrow.

***Rush's take on the media panic regarding GOP wins on Tuesday.
The exact word may not be used, but "panic is all over the headline, it's all over the story," he commented.
The New York Times' Upshot, a constantly updated model, showed late Saturday morning that there was a 71 percent likelihood the GOP would win the Senate. The Washington Post's Election Lab, meanwhile, pegged the GOP's chances at 95 percent as of Saturday morning.
In addition, Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight blog gave Republicans a 68.5 percent chance of taking over. All three indices showed an increased chance for the GOP compared to Thursday's numbers.
"So you can see, even if you want to dispute the actual raw numbers, you can look at the trend and see which way the trend is going," said Limbaugh.
