    Taking Notes...

    My 2cents: For me the Apple pen has been a great investment. I was able to purchase one on eBay for a lower price. The pen does seem to be a bit slick to grip but a silicone sleeve(also eBay purchase) resolved that quite nicely. I also do use Notablty almost exclusively.
  4. Oh my, this was my high school crush. No but seriously i think this album is in a cupboard in the basement storeroom along with Hermans Hermits and the Beach Boys and Gordon Lightfoot. 🤣

    Hourglass Software

    It’s a great App! Our our congregation has implemented the app. It is used for the reporting of monthly service reports to the Secretary and service group overseers, in lieu of paper reports. You can see only see each of your own personal monthly reports. This app is not intended for daily, weekly calculations that one would normally keep for yourself. Similar to the paper reports, you just fill in the blanks. The app also sends reminders to turn in your time. (Oops) . It is an accurate reporting venue so the only transcription errors would be your own. I think it is a time saver for the Secretary as well. One other thing, when you respond to the “invitation” the app is installed ONLY on the device that is used for the initial install. I found this out after installing it on my iPad, then tried to install on my phone. Had to request another invite and delete it on the iPad because I prefer it on my phone. 😖
  6. I see what you say. Does anyone recall if it was ever in the app?
  7. I can’t help but think that this tattoing obsession is a direct assault, by Satan, mocking Jehovah’s sovereignty by influencing Jehovah’s creation to disfigure themselves. I heard a radio interview not long ago, where a Physcologist said the tattoing trend is a Body Dysmorphia Syndrome, which is the idea that their bodies are not acceptable as is, causing the individual to “cover over” what they find not to be acceptable. Satan’s media makes all this tattoing look “normal”. When really it is a mental condition as well a a spiritual problem. It vol2 TATTOO A permanent mark or design on the skin made by cutting the skin to produce scars or by inserting coloring matter under the skin. The Israelites were forbidden to engage in this practice, one that was common among some other ancient peoples. (Le 19:28) For example, there were times when the Egyptians tattooed the names or symbols of their deities on their breast or arms. By complying with Jehovah’s law not to disfigure their bodies, the Israelites would have stood out as different from other nations. (De 14:1, 2) The prohibition would also have impressed upon them a proper respect for the human body as God’s creation, to be used in honoring him.—Ps 100:3; 139:13-16; Ro 12:1.

    The "original Ferdinand"
  9. 130 Gilead Graduation w 11 8/1 Will You Make the Old New?” Gilead instructor Mark Noumair posed that question in his talk. He discussed 1 John 2:7, 8, wherein the apostle John mentioned “an old commandment” that was also “a new commandment.” Both referred to the same commandment—that Christ’s followers love one another unselfishly, with a self-sacrificing spirit. (John 13:34, 35) The command was old in that it had been laid upon Jesus’ followers decades earlier by Christ himself; it was also new, though, in that Christians were facing new challenges and needed to show love in new and fuller ways. Missionaries too face a new set of circumstances and need to learn to show love in new ways. What is the key to doing so? “Don’t become the thing you hate,” exhorted Brother Noumair. He warned that if we see behavior we hate yet respond in kind, we become what we hate, which is a self-destructive course. On the other hand, if we respond to such challenges by finding new ways to show love, we shine “the true light” and dispel spiritual darkness.
  10. Whoo how you get the golden star prize! Thank you. Mystery solved. But yet the mystery remains is where was the video of him presenting the talk.hmmmmmm
  11. Brother Tortuga, i did see that reference in the online library,the only thing is it did not have the reference to "dont become" that is included in the afore-referenced notes. Alas the mystery deepens.😖
  12. Ok i googled "dont become the thing you hate Mark Noumair" and found this. I have no idea of who owns or wrote these notes. Anyhow, perhaps my sleuthing has revealed the name of the talk. (i thinking it must have been available on the Broadcast at some point). Dont fee is it so crazy now😜.
  13. Oops forgot to say that: When you long press you need to drag the app up to the screen. FYI iPad 2,3,4 and iPad mini 2,3 do not have full dual screen capabilities where the second app remains in view when actively using the first open screen.
