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

    What's with all the tattoo's...?!

    Wearing a ring is not practical when working around farm machinery. Found that out the hard way. Nearly had my ring finger ripped off. Haven't worn any rings for over 45 and a half years. Will be married 46 years in December.
  2. That makes 38 Chorus versions so far and counting, er, impatiently counting.

    Earthquakes In One Place After Another...

    So far, there have been 151 quite sizeable aftershocks from that big quake in northern Alaska yesterday. Took a while to count them all. My app is set to 3.5 or larger. So it hasn't even got all the 1s 2s and 3s listed.

    Earthquakes In One Place After Another...

    Mine were, too! The 6.4 hit during our Watchtower Study. Good thing my phone was on vibrate. Nearly vibrated right out of my hand.

    Earthquakes In One Place After Another...

    A 6.4 struck Alaska this morning. 25 + aftershocks folliwed, most strong enough to do more damage. Even a 6.1. Of course, all these reports were made before the USGS did "their crazy downgrades".

    California Fires

    We have been getting smoke from the west coast fires here, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, too. Makes a miserable haze and is obstructing meteor shower watching. Perseids' peak was last night, but should be good tonight, if the haze isn't messing things up. Up to one meteor per minute...with no smoke screen. O per minute, otherwise. Praying for our family at the source of all that smoke.

    Plane Stolen from Seattle Airport

    Just found out that a Q-400 Bombardier Dash 8 costs 32.2 million dollars. Whew! That deadly joyride took a high toll all the way around.

    Post a picture... Any picture

    As Brother Richard has already pointed out, it's a Sun Bittern from Costa Rica The sunbittern (Eurypyga helias) is a bittern-like bird of tropical regions of Costa Rica.

    Plane Stolen from Seattle Airport

    Watching events continue to unfold on CBSN Live. The island the plane crashed into is now on fire and fire apparatus had to be hauled to the site by ferries. The thief was an Alaska's Horizon Airways employee. Apparent suicide.

    Plane Stolen from Seattle Airport

    Whatever is going on, it is still unresolved because some west bound flights are still grounded and Arab and Bangor flights are not being allowed to take off at all, no matter what direction they may be headed in.
  13. Got a scanner alert that something was going on at the Seattle Airport. Hope people don't get hurt.
