How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    Mom knew the Truth before I was born. Sisters knocked on our door and Mom got reactivated. We moved to another state and I began attending meetings and studied.

  1. Bay Area on Fire

    Typically we would be updated on containment; 10% - 30% - etc. I have seen no such updates. This is literally out- of- control. Cal Fire is throwing everything they can at this. Outside agencies pitching in as well.
  2. Bay Area on Fire

    Yes, there's this tunnel you see . . . Wait ! I've said too much already . . .
  3. Bay Area on Fire

    This got me thinking. It's not as simple as one would think. To begin with, I found the following explanation: When you walk into the wind (blowing into your face) you are upwind ( going against the wind). An airplane takes off upwind to get lift. When you travel with the wind blowing on your back, you are downwind. In an airplane, it's a tailwind. However, when hunting, the idea is to be downwind of the prey. This is so the prey won't pick up your scent, because the wind is blowing from the prey toward the hunter. That would mean the hunter is walking upwind, with the wind blowing into your face, and is downwind of the deer. You wouldn't want to live in a house that's downwind of a livestock ranch, or dairy farm. You will have a nose-full of stank. I would have agreed with Dove when she asked, "Upwind is better than downwind, right"? Now I'm not sure. It seems you could be either upwind, downwind, or both. Maybe someone can clear this up, it that's possible? On a serious note, the fires are tragic for all concerned. Unfortunately, there's a red flag warning for Wednesday/Thursday. My own neighborhood burned down 10 years ago. You could Google it - Angora Fire 2007. We will hope for a rapid conclusion to this disaster.
  4. “calm before the storm,”

    When you know something but can't tell anyone; it's irresistible to drop hints / tease it. "You'll find out" , while ominous in itself, always makes me think 'sooner' rather than 'later'.
  5. Earthquakes In One Place After Another...

    Las Vegas . . .
  6. Very interesting. The explanation that JW's are banned in Russia in order for the government to distance itself from the West is plausable. I like the point that "error has no rights but people do".
  7. Earthquakes In One Place After Another...

    In about two months we will be giving wide distribution to the December AWAKE! No. 6 - Is the World out of Control? This would be very timely right now. I shudder to think how supremely timely it will be in another couple months.
  8. So, Captain Sonny Hernandez is a nut job. Every organization has 'em. The part I find highly suspect, as fake news, is where "Trump would make it USAF policy that in order for disbelieving Jews to be allowed into the USAF, or be deemed fit for promotions, they would have to show via objectively established behavior that they were at least honestly 'considering the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ '. That's nonsense. Does anyone think his SIL Jared Kushner would have agreed to that, to earn his top-level security clearance?
  9. On the FOX channel, Greg Gutfeld (funny guy) said " Hillary Clinton's book is out, and she's making the rounds like a Jehovah's Witness in a pantsuit". Thanks Greg!!!
  10. I agree President Trump's address to the UN could be a watershed moment. It will garner a worldwide audience, which will collectively be holding their breath.
  11. Emergecy United Nations meeting

    As previously mentioned, Saturday is their Founding Day (Independence Day) September 9, 1948 the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea was born. I haven't checked, but has it been under the control of the Kim's the whole 69 years? Aside from that, they may see the US as distracted, if not weak, due to the natural disasters lately. Likely to be at least another PR launch. Wasn't today's text interesting? "It is evident that the Devil places no value on human life. He certainly does not have a soft spot for children. Never underestimate his vicious disposition!".
  12. As I've said before; Once in the flooring trade - there's no escape.
  13. Q, are you in the trade as well? There have always been a lot of brothers in flooring. I remember doing a double-stick job for the back offices at Dodger Stadium. It must have been tied-in with our use of the venue for District Conventions. You probably noticed in last week's (9-03) Watchtower, the image on page 7, the arm superimposed with volunteer workers, shows the brothers laying carpet tiles at Warwick.
  14. Emergecy United Nations meeting

    Is that knocking sound I hear Her Majesties' knees?
