My Hobbies & Interests

  • My favorite quotes
    If you can count the number of times you have prayed today, then you haven't prayed enough.

    The reasons some brothers and sisters give for not being at the meetings are the very reasons they should be there.

    We need to be at the meetings to "incite to love and fine works."—Hebrews 10:24. But how can you incite if you're not in sight?

  1. Great Tribulation announcement! Oh no, you're jumping the gun. That's in next month's broadcast.
  2. Hi Abigail, I'm not a moderator here, but I was just writing a Private Message to another member here who is also a limited access user to encourage her to post more. If you were a full access member you wouldn't need to wait to get your posts approved, and (as already mentioned) it would open your access to all the forums. You have to post more comments for that to happen. Perhaps you have an idea for a comment in the weekly Watchtower Study, the Bible reading, or the Congregation Bible Study. There are always topics for those, so post your comment there. Take some time to browse through the topics in the various forums that are available to you and see what appeals to you. Of course, at the moment you need to wait for your post to be approved before it appears. But eventually the moderators will get to know you through those posts, and will 'promote' you to a full access user. Several years ago I was in the same position as you. Eventually though, and very surprisingly to me, all of a sudden I was a full access user. It didn't take all that long either! We'd love to get to know you. So just reach out.
  3. My father was a painter too (amateur), back in the 1950s and early 60s when I was a youngster. He used to paint things like this, copying a scene from a calendar or something, so I grew to like them. I recall the smell of the oil paints in the house, the paintings taking several days to dry thoroughly. But I know for certain he wasn't using HDR! There was no such thing as digital photography in those days, and even then I don't think I would have liked a photograph looking like a painting. This was the real thing! I have several of his paintings hanging on my walls.
  4. Oh, thank you Greg. Much better as far as I'm concerned. I'd still be interested in hearing other points of view about the HDR photo though. Maybe someone else can see something in it that I can't.
  5. Yeah. Personally I was never a fan of Picasso's paintings. Come to think of it, maybe he used HDR.
  6. Hhmmm. Okay. But actually, if HDR comes out looking like a painting, I think I'd rather stick with my own camera. (personal preference) This doesn't look like a painting... (our Montreal Assembly Hall—sorry I don't have a photo of Venice)
  7. To me, it looks like a painting. Is it a real photograph? (or a photograph of a painting?)
  8. Oh my! Special effects in a weather forecast... I've never seen that before!
  9. My Bible(s) is holding out very well. Well, yes, I have a few copies; one for my service bag, one for my meeting case, one on my kitchen table with the Daily text, another at my bedside table... Did I forget any...? I agree. After seeing a video (I don't remember which one) about the research they did beforehand on what materials to use for the new Bible, I was amazed! They made a good choice.
  10. Being half-German, and having seen one of the memorial concentration camps in Germany several years ago (Dachau), I was very interested in reading about this exhibition on jw.org. It marked the 70th anniversary of the largest gathering of Jehovah's people following the end of World War II. https://www.jw.org/en/news/jw/region/germany/kassel-exhibition-anniversary-witness-convention/ If you understand German, here is the official website, and a video of the expo.
  11. Go to that page in the Google Chrome browser. It will (usually) offer to translate it for you. If that doesn't work, go to Google Translate and paste in the link.
  12. You mean, like this...?
  13. Wow, that's interesting. https://www.jw.org/nl/publicaties/tijdschriften/wachttoren-studie-december-2018/jij-zult-met-mij-in-paradijs-zijn/ An English title creeping into a Dutch Watchtower!!! What will they think of next?
  14. With that glass, however, it's certain you will never pass your limit!
