CR And ODAAT Play Cupid

The Greater Philadelphia Church of Christ Chemical Recovery Ministry and One Day At A Time (ODAAT) are groups of faithful disciples bringing men and women to the Lord. ODAAT was founded in 1983 by Henry "The Rev" Wells. As a recovering addict, he saw the need to provide support for addicts who did not have money, health insurance or a place to live.

The Rev started ODAAT by he and his wife, Margret, inviting a recovering couple and other homeless addicts into their North Philadelphia home. The Rev and Margaret were shortly thereafter baptized into Christ and are currently members of the Greater Philadelphia Church of Christ (GPCC).

Alcohol-Powered Laptops

Toshiba has unveiled a prototype fuel cell that it hopes will become the power source for laptops in the future, BBC News reported Saturday. The fuel cell breaks down methanol (alcohol) to generate power, and Toshiba claims, that it will provide enough juice to run a laptop for about five hours. Future versions of the fuel cell should be able to power a laptop for about 10 hours.
The methanol cartridges are about the size of a computer mouse. The prototype of the fuel cell is larger -- about the size of a house brick. Average power output is 12W and maximum is 20W. Unused energy is stored in the fuel cell. The commercial versions will be slightly larger than existing lithium-ion batteries and use the same power interfaces so they should work with older laptops.

What CR Means To Me

My name is Robyn Soerries. I was baptized into Christ in the San Diego Church of Christ in April, 2000. I quit smoking cigarettes one week prior to being baptized having smoked for 15 years. I had moved to California from Wichita, Kansas to get away from my life of drugs. I was a daily user of marijuana and also used cocaine weekly; daily if I could get it. I was too prideful to admit I needed help so I moved, thinking that if I didn't have any drug contacts, I would be forced to quit. This worked for my cocaine habit but I found marijuana in California quite easily.

After being baptized, I quit using everything but alcohol. I did not feel that this was a problem since it was never my drug of choice. However, when I drank I always craved cigarettes. After much unemployment and the rising cost of living in San Diego, I moved to Denver. With just two years as a disciple, I became over-confident in my power to "just say no". I was not as strong as I thought and was easily deceived by Satan's schemes.
