How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    My best friends Mom was studying. It made sense. My best friend and I started going to the meetings, and out in then door to door work. We were baptized the next year. Had no personal bible study. Have you any idea just how wonderful things are today, vs. what happened in the early 60's?
    But I do consider my self so blessed. So blessed....

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    My life in the truth, and all it entails. My husband, though not in the truth yet is a big part of my life. Plus, I love the outdoors, good hard work, and our dogs and cats. Outside, I am a dog person, inside, a cat person. We have 4 dogs, and 3 cats. One of those cats is mine. Batgirl. She is asleep right by me on the couch. I am hers, too.
  • My favorite books
    Of course, our theocratic literature. Beyond that, fiction, Clive Cussler. Not in depth literature. e. e. Cummings is one of my favorite poets. Not much time for that though.
  • My favorite music
    Eclectic. Late 40's and 50's country music. Mandy Patinkin is one of my most favorite singers. I pretty well enjoy music. In the new system, I will have a great singing voice, learn to play the violin, and go from there. Oh, Jeanette McDonald and Nelson Eddy.
  • My favorite movies
    Older musicals, Finding Nemo, Star Trek, Documentaries.
    Television. Doc Martin, Antique Roadshow, A movie, if I can find a decent one. Not much television.

  1. Good news. It’s beea bit since I’ve felt like if I were a horse, they’d shoot me!

      Hahaha  that's my saying

    Category 4 Hurricane Florence Heading for the US

    We’ve been watching about the storm on Democracy Now! That storm has the potential to be as destructive as this type of storm naturally is. But, more. There are pig farms. And an open area, (big) that contains fecal matter and other matter, best not stated. Plus something about ash heaps from coal mining. Both results from man just being interested in the Mighty Dollar and not much else. When and if this storm hits these areas, it will be a disaster upon a disaster. That aside, take care dear friends. Be as as safe as possible!
  3. Jerry, I have two people in my life that are my historians. And I love it. You, and dear Joan VanCleave. You both are full of things I have forgotten, or didn’t know, and wish I did! Good minds a wonderful gift! My memory is like Swiss cheese. All sorts of holes! I’m hoping the wonderful things I’ve forgotten will be restored in due time! Thanks. (I can wander OT, though)
  4. There used to be a lot of fog in this area. In my lifetime I have seen the weather change. A lot. At one time I think the airport in Mckinleyville was on of the foggiest. ( It used to be called the Eureka, Arcata airport, or something like that. It lives in Mckinleyville though.) Humboldt County. Now I think it’s called something to do with the redwoods. You can see how up I am on details!
  5. I did read the grim details to see if this actually had something to do with us. Nope. Anymore, is see headlines, some unspeakable, most heartbreaking. I read no further. In fact, I try to move away, as soon as possible. I’m not pretending such doesn’t happen. I just don’t want the details.

    DVD copy

    Hmmm. This is interesting. On my old computer, ripping and burning CD’s was a snap. Years ago, yes, years ago, I went and got a computer. Nothing great, but, it should have met my needs. Minimal. To this day, I do not know how to do anything, I mean, anything on that computer. I lie. I can update the Apple program that does the music. Then I manage to synce with my ipod. Then it scoots over to my phone and iPad. That’s pretty much it. I want to haul the thing into town where I bought it, pay for an hours instruction, and, at least be able to burn CD’s. Oh, the icons got really enlarged, really enlarged. I can’t get the things back to normal. Lovely experience, all around! (I did a screenshot of some of the information gleaned from this thread. We shall see if I can make it a reality)
  7. I’m rethinking the, “eating like a bird”. We just bought 80 pounds of bird seed. Should last us a little over a month. Or less!

      And,  in reality, they do it, and without our help, almost all the time. I see coveys of quail below the house. They know nothing of their cousins, “on the take”, up the hill, above them. 

      I saw a mama with a bunch of birds under her wings. I thought, “Oh I have to get some bird seed down her”. Then came to my sanity. Jehovah will do well, thank you.

      80 pounds?...

      Well, a little olive oil, a skillet, might not be too bad....lol

      Um, part of the company at the bird feeders are big fat quail! My husband calls them, “prairie chickens”. We have to be pretty hungry, though.

  8. Okay, Ross just had a geothermal heating unit put in. For heat, we have a wood stove, and one of those kerosene heaters. 

    My husband is considering a pellet stove. (He is in his 70’s, and really tired of the 5 cords of wood a year routine. 

    Today at our lunch, we were talking about it. And a thing came up I have never heard of. I think it is called a HVAC system. Runs off of electricity. 

    Anyone familiar with it. 

    I just hate the thought of being dependent on pellets for heat! 

    Now that we have electricity...

    It’s supposed to heat in winter, cool in summer, and purify the air in the house. Sounds too good to be true to me!

      HVAC is ok, it depends on where you are. If the PUD or local electric company is competitive then it'll work. Please look into a ductless heating system.  We've had it for 3 years and we got a great tax deduction on our taxes for it. It's also forced air but much cheaper and it has air conditioning too.

      Here's a link, one of many you can research

      I lived with a pellet stove for a couple of years,  I can't really say I recommend then.

      It wasn't serious cold there, mid 20F at the worst and not that for any length of time. The bags were 50pnds, about $5 buxs US each, we could use a bag a day and it only heated that one room. It was noisy, it has a fan and the parts that deliver the pellets to the burn box are all electric driven. No power, no heat, no fun...

      The HVAC deal is better but having steel insert in your fireplace is the hot tip....

      We actually have 4 different sources of heating. Cadet in the wall (no way), Individual infrared fireplaces in each bedroom (works great) ductless Mitsubishi heat- (works great) and pellet fireplace insert (wonderful).  Our house is rather large, being a remodeled church, so we've had to adapt to alternative sources of heat.

      We got a refund for adding economical heating making it more affordable.

  9. Hmmm. Can’t say if it’s a typo, or my mind. I think I saw the same name, (Selena) on this post. Natch, I had to repeat it it!
  10. If your study bible needs to be updated, will it show up on, “pending updates”?
  11. With Selena, she’s had a baby. Things change in a big way with that event. Now, it is not just your life. Let’s hope she gets her spiritual life together. And, when, and if, someone like this is brought up to me, I just say, “anyone can call themselves a Jehovah’s Witness. Let’s hope eventually it’s so”. No big deal. Like I said, if ones are looking to find fault... That Reddit Site. Somehow I ended up on it, glanced around, and shut it down, post haste. No whatever is worth what I saw!
  12. There are tattoos, then there are tattoos. Ones of a medical nature are one thing. Whatever the case is. “Artwork” is another thing. I don’t think that is what Jehovah intended for His creation. Sort of strange. It’s a bit controversial. I think that my expertise extends to what I do with my body. Others will do as they may. And that is their business. There was a big hullabaloo in our family. When a granddaughter turned 18, off she marched to, um, a tattoo drawing person. It’s a “memorial” to two dead young ladies. Inside here arm. Very close to our family. The dead ones. The son, not in the truth, out came the Bible, condemning tattoos. And, he was serious. Lots of hurt feelings over this matter. Natch, they came to me. ‘Twasnt my business. No one came to me and asked my opinion. Tattoes are a big thing now, for some unknown reason. And, one of the brothers I’m waiting to greet back in the new system had a Marine Corps tattoo on his inner arm. It was sort of endearing. He came into the truth, and, that was the end of the matter. His widow is a very dear friend of mine. We see ones, (somehow, I notice them on sisters) with tattoos, and they are dear. The tattoos are a history of their time in the world.(some histories are more evident then others, [unseen]) They are here with us. There was a sister who is inactive. She had a beautiful daughter. Physically. Yes, she is sweet, and still loves us, but she has some tattoo on one shoulder. Roses, or something. But, that young lady needed no, “enhancement” of any sort! A bit sad. And, I don’t know if there are sisters who have done it, but, there comes a time for some when eyebrows are a pain. A friend of mine has none, and has to, “put them on daily”. She’s said she’s given thought to having them, um, inked in. None of my business, and, if she did have it done, none of us would notice, i sincerely hope. As I said, there are tattoos, then,there are tattoos.
  13. Any one can say they are a witness. I’d rather have worldly people bumble along, on the edge, perhaps. There is still time. And lives are at stake. Most of us have loved ones in that category. We can not control other people’s mouths, or even their actions. Personally, i think someone who thinks less of us because of people like this are looking to find fault. Let them have their day. It will be short lived. Ones who personally know us, or have the right heart condition will see past the nonesense. And see the truth for what it is pure and clean. Its this side of the fence I’m most concerned with!
  14. Not really. Grow up spiritually, but, not in your heart. Keep it youthful! You’ll never grow old that way! A brother told me to, “never grow old, Bea”. Good advice. I don’t want people to wonder what I’m up too, now, but, I don’t want them to think of me as an old lady!
