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

    Now, for some weird news......

    I can just hear it now, "This coffee tastes like #$!%." Had to see who's poo they were speaking about: Too cute to be kept in cages and force-fed cherries. No more cruelty to Jehovah's critters in the New World.

    Nuns on the run!

    Is saying the rosary an olympic event now? "Mother Superior could have had a gold medal in the speed bead, but she missed the podium by a two hail Marys and a glory be." It is a bad habit of hers.

    Increasing hemoglobin

    When my Mom broke her femur a couple of years back her hemoglobin was so low, they wanted to transfuse her. Someone on here mentioned that drinking beet juice is good for building red blood cells. Can't hurt. Unless you hate beet juice. I tried it. It's actually pretty tasty.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab E 9.6"

    For what I am going to be doing with it, it is PRACTICALLY PERFECT IN EVERY WAY. The screen is HUGE. It can take an SD card up to 128 GB. If you download File Manager +, you will be able to find your way around. I think I got a good buy. The speaker is atrocious and the camera isn't the greatest, but I am not going to be using it to take pictures and the sound is plenty good enough for out in service. The info I was looking for was its born-on date and its operating system. Thanks to Brother Musky/Chuck, I know the OS is Nougat. So it can't be all that old. I did not want to buy a tablet and then have it go obsolete on me like my old Galaxy tab did. As a study tablet, this one fits me fine. The battery is so good, it will see me safely through entire days at assemblies and conventions.

    Post a picture... Any picture

    On the way to the hall a few weeks back, Jehovah treated me to an awesome sunrise.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab E 9.6"

    Here is a pic of my old Galaxy tab and my new Galaxy tab. I still use my old one for reading and playing games. Wish the operating system wasn't obsolete. Most apps are no longer compatible with it.. I received it as a gift from my brother way back in 2011. And it's still going.

    Keto, IF and OMAD...

    Have you tried diluting it in water? Maybe you could tolerate it if it wasn't so strong?

    Keto, IF and OMAD...

    I have found that on days I have stomach pangs it isn't necessarily because I am hungry. Sometimes my stomach just hurts. Has to do with a botched surgery back in 2000. LOLOLOL I love dill pickles!!! I put tons of them in my tuna and mayo on keto bread!!! And I do the same with our sauerkraut!!! Rinse and drain (press) and then add a little chopped onion and fry it in a LOT of butter. We usually eat Johnsonville Brats with ours. I grate raw cabbage and add it to all my salads. I love the extra crunch.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab E 9.6"

    The battery died on my old Ellipsis tablet and I got tired of using my phone's tiny screen for meetings, so I broke down and bought a new tablet. It's a Samsung Galaxy Tab E with a 9.6" screen and 16 GB of internal storage. I put a 128 GB SD card in it. It has a super long-lasting battery. Battery capacity is 7300 mAh. It can go all day and still be half-charged. The paperwork claims you can watch 17 hours of videos on it without having to recharge and I am inclined to believe that claim. My first tablet was a Samsung Galaxy, and that was a good experience. So I was not too hesitant to purchase another Samsung product. Besides, it was on sale for $129 bucks. Hard to find a large screen tablet for under $200 bucks around these parts. I proceeded to download practically every downloadable thing on JW Library (Internet service is hit and miss in our rural territories) plus all the monthly broadcast talks, morning worship talks GB talks, music, movies, dramas, etc. etc. and I still have TONS of storage space available. The tablet is running Kernel 3.10.49-12562000 from Nov. 15th, 2017. And it says there are no new updates. Is Android 7.1.1 the latest Android operating system? The Samsung site doesn't provide much pertinent info. They don't even show my tablet when I search for it. They show a different model with a different model number. This one is a different model number, but I think mine must be newer because it has 7.1.1 OS and this one only has 5.1. I couldn't find a pic of the tablet I bought : Model SM-T560NU
