How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    The story of how I found the Truth exceeds the space allowed. : ( So I have posted it on the "How Did You Get the Truth?" thread, instead.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    Looking at Jehovah's creation that is visible to the naked eye and using my binocular microscope to view Jehovah's creation that is not visible to the naked eye. : D
    Writing short stories and poetry, jigsaw puzzles, horseback riding, hiking, camping out in a tent and sitting around a campfire, calling in the owls, bird watching,star gazing...pretty much all outdoor activities--except when the blackflies and mosquitoes are bad. lol
  • My favorite books
    Jehovah's letter to mankind and all of the other books provided for us through the faithful and discreet slave.
    The Potlatch Family, an old Scholastic book that I enjoy rereading from time to time.
  • My favorite music
    All of the Kingdom Melodies.
    The Bee Gees, Michael Bolton, Foreigner, most all soft Rock. Good melodies and beats but bad lyrics= no listen.
    I love Douglas Spotted Eagle's flute music and Al Hirt and Herb Alpert's trumpets and Kenny G's alto sax. Rodrigo's Concert de Aranjuez, Pachelbel's Canon. If it's beautiful and it's soothing, I enjoy it.
  • My favorite quotes
    Being an avid ecologist, I find great comfort in Jehovah's promise at Revelation 11:18b "...and will bring to ruin those ruining the earth."

    I keep threatening to have a T-shirt printed up that says: Nobody has to DRIVE me crazy. I'm close enough to WALK. LOLOLOL Or, "Why FARM? When there are so many easier ways to NOT make a living." lol Or, "We have a lot of breakdowns on the farm. Some of them are even mechanical." lolol
    Being a writer, I also like this one by Stephen Leacock: "Writing is not difficult. Simply get paper and pencil and write as it occurs to you. Writing is EASY. It's the 'occurring' that's HARD." lolol

  1. Well, in spite of the inclement weather and treacherous road conditions, we had our LDC meeting tonight.


    I cannot believe our remodel project is scheduled to take TWELVE WEEKS!!!:o


    The changes are apparently going to be a lot more extensive than were originally slated a few years ago.  


    Our remodel project got put on a back-burner because of all the natural disasters and the need for brothers and sisters who didn't have any hall at all.


    Exciting times ahead for our Munising, Michigan congregation. ^_^

    What's the Weather like where you live?

    My Brother Tom lives just outside of Seattle in Renton, Washington. He has eight inches of snow in his backyard and the extreme weather shows no sign of letting up. Their grocery store shelves are bare and restaurants are suffering financial loss because nobody can get out to eat.

    Orthodox Church Splits

    Orthodox Church Splits Revelation Chapter 18: The fall of Babylon the not-so-Great Humph. Lincoln was sort of a prophet.

    House Explosion on Road I Grew Up At

    I listened to that develop on the scanner and then the fire companies wisely went to radio silence. When there are explosive concentrations of gas in an area, the gas could potentially be ignited by the tiny electrical spark that is discharged when radios' send buttons are pressed.

    Earthquakes In One Place After Another...

    Very big and very shallow. I pray our brothers and sisters are all okay.

    Post a picture... Any picture

    No wonder I fit in so well. I'm a little 'warped' and 'twisted', too.
  10. Australia must be becoming kangroo-less. The little beasties have filled the Russian courts to capacity. \ We all knew it was coming...Still I am so sick and so disgusted with Satan's system of things I could just SCREAM!!!

    Why I'm Glad Dictionaries Don't Write Poetry

    The first part is the Dictionary's definitions of the words in Robert Louis Stevenson's poem, "The Swing". Both the poet and the dictionary have a 'way with words'. Both are capable of defining things. I was merely trying to relate that I prefer the human brain's way of defining things over the book's way.
  12. Below is a poem by a well-known author, written from a Dictionary's point of view. How much of it can you translate? I think I prefer the 'undefined' version.
  13. Lyrics to "You Can Count on Me" (compliments of Brother Chew❤️) Google One Drive quit on my Windows XP, so I have attached the lyrics to all of our JW Broadcast songs from October 2014 through February 2019 THE Lyrics to JW Broadcast Original Songs.rtf

    The Southern Lights

    Hey, the Southern Lights ain't too bad, either. Takes a special camera, capable of filming in 70 below zero temps. Mostly, I love the views of our solar system's home in Jehovah's universe, the Milkyway Galaxy. Never seen such clear, incredible pics of it before. http://spaceweather.com/
  15. I love this Scripture and I really love the way the JW Broadcast song highlights its message:
