  1. Moscow is 11 hours ahead of California. So, this hearing and decision will take place as I sleep. It's surreal in a way. Can this really be happening? Either way - Jehovah has the last word.
  2. I enjoyed meeting Br. Sydlik in '86. We were both at the Bethel barbershop. He asked me about my assignment. I was on the way to Nigeria to work construction. Told him my trade was flooring. In his booming voice, he said "Well, put a decent floor in that place, will ya" (more or less - it's been 31 years). My feet were not touching the ground when I left that small shop !!! Still makes me smile when I think about it.
  3. Awesome, brothers ! For the record - I'm very good at shoveling snow. Just sayin' . . .
  4. OK - What's a 'link' ? haha . . I may be the most tech unsavvy here on the forum. However, was edition 1/6/17 in L.A. Times. Byline (if they still refer to the author that way) is Paige St. John and Joseph Serna. Title was "Paniic in the Sierra Nevada . . ." Perhaps you can track it down? I found it at Drudge Report.
  5. Tim and Denise . . this one's for you L.A. Times, story on major storm system, "The town of Colfax in the Sierra Nevada, known as the 'turnaround town', has one of the most used I-80 on/off ramps in Northern California on a snow day". Options for stranded travelers are slim in the Old West railroad town, whose most famous mention is a passing reference in Jules Verne's 'Around the World in 80 Days'. Even Phileas Fogg did not stop. http://www.latimes.com/sdhoy-state-of-panic-grips-northern-california-as-atmospheric-river-approaches-the-sierra-nevada-20170106-story.html Hope you enjoyed this Tim and Denise !
  6. This won't help our situation in Russia. The government already considers us as extremist. If the government retaliates against 'religious extremism', we could be caught up in that.
  7. Tim, you are awarded, in absentia, the Tongue-In-Cheek award for wit and entertainment value.
  8. Wow. 10 years. Thanks for the memory, Glenn. I distinctly remember one door; the lady saying 'No, no' but also looking at the tract. Then saying 'Wait.'. She accepted it. I recall this was around the time religious-terrorism was emerging.
  9. Anyone heard of the FB page titled 'World-Wide Brotherhood of Jehovah's Witnesses' ? Comments on the page give the impression this is from our organization. Really? What stops apostate commentary?
  10. We always wondered what exactly is a 'mucca' , in case we should win one.
  11. A neighbor told me his new puppy is a cross between a poodle and another poodle. Ah, so, it's a . . poodle-doodle ?
  12. Hope , what's the Grand Total so far ? Is the Towers residential building the only one left ?
  13. Yes, I once lived in Oxnard. From your 'neck-of-the-woods' Tim, I served with Brother Bob, a plumber. Last name escapes me. We were in Nigeria helping build the new branch office back in '86-'87. You know who I'm referring to? CO Richard Holland knew both of us.
  14. If not allowed, go ahead and delete . . I need a brother or sister in the area of Oceanside, California to help find a place I can rent or buy. Health reasons. PM me if you are a realtor or know one.
  15. For those who didn't hear the broadcast . . . npr.org/sections/world 3:39 in length.
