  1. Russia is assigned to the Tbilisi Georgia Special Convention in July, so you can travel there freely?
  2. In the U.S., State laws can add to the confusion. In the State of Montana the age of consent for a female is 16 years old. For males....... 18. So in theory if two 16 year old people had consensual sex, she could be the abuser and or statutory rapist. If either are under 16, then age does not matter, it's abuse AND if it's a homosexual relationship both have to be 18. How cases like this are to be criminally charged is not the job of the Elders, as stated, their responsibility is to keep the Congregation clean.

    A good joke

    Given a choice between ladders and chutes, I'll take the latter.
  6. I agree, a TV with Roku built in would be the easiest. Open the Roku and start the JW TV app.... done. You do have to set it up the first time but you just "add a channel" and search "JW" and it pops right up. It's one of the most popular apps on Roku.

    Chili Cook-Off!

    We had a chili cook-off also last weekend. 8 entries. Mine was voted the hottest and the best. The only "heat" I had was chili powder so I didn't think it was hot at all. Maybe a 4 out of 10. I know why it won....... It had bacon in it! I just googled "Best Chili with Bacon" and followed the recipe, also done in a slow cooker. The only thing I'll do different next time is to cook the bacon first a little more well done so that it's crispy.......... and now I'm hungry again.
  8. My wife, daughter and son in-law and I are going to the Special Convention in Tbilisi Georgia in July but after that we are flying to Dubrovnik Croatia. Anyone have any Croatia suggestions? We could stay in Dubrovnik, travel up to Split or even head over to Bosnia or Montenegro. We fly into and out of Dubrovnik but we'll rent a car so a little travel would be OK and we'll find an Airbnb to stay in. I see there are no english speaking Congregations close by, but going to a meeting and service would still be a blast!
  9. Brief mention of Jehovah's Witnesses toward the end of the article. https://themoscowtimes.com/news/hrw-declares-2017-dark-year-for-independent-voices-in-russia-60217
  10. Georgia's selection started yesterday and my wife and I get to go along with my daughter and her husband! Two others from our KH were also selected. For all of us Georgia was our first choice. So excited! (Except for the 30 hour trip to get there)
  11. New article in the Moscow Times about JW appeal. https://themoscowtimes.com/news/jehovahs-witnesses-appeal-russias-extremist-label-58922
  12. Has anyone else used the Alexa skill "JW Access"? It works super good and I don't think it's a copyright problem because it does not store anything but just just streams from JW.org (but correct me if I'm wrong). I'm not sure if I should post the web site but it's easily googled. These are not in Alexa's "voice" it's right from the JW.org site. This is what it can get Alexa to do according to the website: JW Access is an Alexa skill to link to, and play, media available on JW.org, the official website of Jehovah's Witnesses. The idea for this skill stemmed primarily from a desire to assist those who have a visual impairment and might not be able to navigate the website easily. However, it is also very enjoyable to listen to content, such as original music, while working around the house. Example phrases: Talks: “Alexa, ask JW Access to play morning worship” Music “Alexa, ask JW Access to play original music” "Alexa, ask JW Access to play children's music" “Alexa, ask JW Access to play kingdom Melodies” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play kingdom Melodies, Chorus” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play kingdom Melodies, orchestrated” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play kingdom Melodies, Meetings” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play song number 149” (or any song number between 1 and 151) The Bible Listen to dramatic Bible readings. Dramas Listen to audio dramas Weekly Bible Reading: “Alexa, ask JW Access to play this week’s Bible reading” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play last week’s Bible reading” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play next week’s Bible reading” Weekly Watchtower Study “Alexa, ask JW Access to play this weeks Watch tower Study” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play next weeks Watch tower Study” “Alexa, ask JW Access to play last weeks Watch tower Study” Alexa’s standard “Next”, “Previous”, “Pause”, and “Resume” commands are always available.

    Home security cameras

    I have a "Ring" doorbell. It records both motion and has the ability to talk to someone at the door that rings it, even if you are not home. It's not really a security camera but it works as one. The range is adjustable from 180 degrees down to about 45. You can also adjust the distance from about 60 feet to around 10. It keeps the recordings on a cloud for I think $15 a year. Super easy to install. Check out the reviews on Amazon.

  15. I did, but it seems much better. Random books and magazines here and there. The big problem I had was downloading music. A few time I tried to download the Piano music and it locked up the program so bad I had to uninstill/reinstall AND reload all the data even though I had it on an SD card. Still afraid to try again so my tablet is music-less.
