  1. How do Tennesseans water ski?
  2. My WT Library 2016 just updated while connected to the internet, love that feature. Could someone please point me to the place where the update file can be downloaded so as to apply it manually? There are some in my congregation that don't have internet access, and I would like to download the file and update for them. Thanks in advance.
  3. Thank you very much my brother. Here in the sticks we have several brothers who don't have internet service at home. This file is very valuable. Much appreciated.
  4. Yesterday I happened to be online, when starting WT Library 2016. It found an update, which downloaded and installed. It was about 173 megabytes in size. It added the midweek meeting schedule to the home page, ( haven't discovered what else yet) which is great. A few brothers in my congregation do not have internet service at home, so I would like to download the update so they can apply it manually. From the menu Help tab, there is an option to "Manually Apply Update Package" . Choosing that option leads to a search for a file with an .updatepkg extension. Can someone please help me find out where to download the update file so it can be applied manually? JW.org link.................?
  5. I was just enjoying the daily text within WT Library 2016, when everything seemed to freeze up for a while. I was connected to the internet at the time, so it finally dawned on me that WT Library had detected an update, and was in the process of getting it. It downloaded a 173 megabyte update, but Luke was not part of it. However, the meeting schedule for midweek meeting is. Excellent!!!
  6. Here in the Bible Belt, many people have told me that King Jimmy's is the "original". I guess that means the one Jesus and the apostles used. Probably Jesus' words that are in red were printed in his blood?
  7. Glad you enjoyed it. The videos are so powerful.
  8. This not the official release, but for the encouragement of my family, as our son is currently out of the truth, I have assembled the clips from the 2016 symposium "Loyally Uphold Jehovah's Judgements" into 1 video, and uploaded them to my google drive. If someone wants to view this video, understanding that it is not official, but cut out of the convention program made available to those weren't able to attend in person, you can PM me and I will be happy to reply with a shareable link to it.
  9. A farmer got pulled over by a state trooper for speeding, and the trooper started to lecture the farmer about his speed, and in general began to throw his weight around to try to make the farmer uncomfortable. Finally, the trooper got around to writing out the ticket, and as he was doing that he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head. The farmer said, "Having some problems with circle flies there, Are Ya?" The trooper stopped writing the ticket and said--"Well yeah, if that's what they are--I never heard of circle flies." So the farmer says--"Well, circle flies are common on farms. See, they're called circle flies because they're almost always found circling around the back end of a horse." The trooper says, "Oh," and goes back to writing the ticket. Then after a minute he stops and says, "Hey...wait a minute, are you trying to call me a horses' rear?" The farmer says, "Oh no, officer. I have too much respect for law enforcement and police officers to even think about calling you a horses' rear." The trooper says, "Well, that's a good thing," and goes back to writing the ticket. After a long pause, the farmer says, "Hard to fool them flies though."
  10. Dear Wife, Never let me live in a vegetative state, totally dependent on machines and liquids from a bottle. If you see me in that state I want you to disconnect all the contraptions that are keeping me alive, because the truth is, I'd much rather die. Then my wife got up from the sofa with this real look of admiration towards me. She loved me very much, and I could see it in her eyes that she respected my wishes in this sensitive matter. And then she proceeded to disconnect the TV, the Cable, the Dish, the DVD, the Computer, the Cell Phone, the iPod, and the Xbox, and then went to the fridge and threw away all my beer!! I nearly died!
  11. Or McDonald's
  12. A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer. All of a sudden, he said out loud, "Lord please grant me a wish." Suddenly the sky clouded above his head and in a booming voice GOD said, "Because you have TRIED to be faithful to me in all things, I will grant you one wish." The man said, "I would like there to be a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over there any time I want." God said, "Your request is very materialistic. Think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking. The supports required to reach the bottom of the Pacific! The concrete and steel it would take! I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of another wish, a wish you think would honor and glorify me." The man thought about it for a long time. Finally he said, "Lord, I wish that I could understand women. I want to know how they feel inside, what they are thinking when they give me the silent treatment, why they cry, what they mean when they say nothing', and how I can make a woman truly happy." God replied, "You want two lanes or four lanes on that bridge?"
  13. An aged farmer and his wife were leaning against the fence of their pig-pen when the old woman wistfully recalled that the next week would mark their golden wedding anniversary. 'Let's have a barbecue, Homer,' she suggested. 'Let's kill a pig.' The farmer scratched his head. 'Gee, Ethel,' he finally answered, 'I don't see why the pig should be punished for something that happened fifty years ago.'
  14. Henry's family were country folk of modest means. One day his Uncle Festus came to visit. Since there were limited accommodations, they were required to share Henry's room. When Uncle Festus came into the bedroom, he saw Henry kneeling at the side of the bed with his head bowed. Thinking this was the child's religious upbringing, he decided to present a good example and kneeled at the other side of the bed with his head bowed. Henry looked up and said, "Whatcha doin'?" "Why, the same thing you're doing", replied Uncle Festus. "Ma's gonna be mad", said Henry, "The pot's on this side."
  15. After a disastrous year, I decided to go over my investments with a financial adviser... The adviser said, "I see you bought $1,000 worth of Nortel stock and now it's worth $49. You also bought Enron and your $1,000 is worth $16.50. Your $1,000 investment in Worldcom has a value of $5." "If you had bought $1,000 worth of Budweiser last year, and I don't mean Budweiser stock, but good ol' Budweiser beer, drank the beer, turned in the bottles for the 10 cent deposit, you would have $214 left from the $1,000 investment. Based on your past performance, the best investment advice I can give you is to drink heavily and recycle."
