How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    Via my fleshly brother, who was studying. The Truth hit me like a slap in the face! Finally everything made sense.
    My wife, Emma, and I were baptised 21st Sep 1991 at the Surrey Assembly Hall. (We now both have CFS and listen to the meetings over the phone. Our ministry is 'the widow's mite' and we are grateful to Jehovah for his understanding.)

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    The Bible!
    The sciences. But they make my brain ache.
  • My favorite books
    My favourite non-spiritual book is probably The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Though I haven't read it for decades.
  • My favorite music
    Careful chosen guitar music.
    Kingdom songs!
  • My favorite quotes
    The conclusion of the matter, everything having been heard, is: Fear the true God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole obligation of man. Ec 12:13

  1. I think it’s a good thing really. Last week I actually apologised to him for eating a bowl of spinach while he was watching. Will you be my friend?
  2. Now Steve has gone I might have to start talking to Emma. Though she did call me a murderer.
  3. I don’t mind spiders but Steve committed the sin of letting them in at night to run across my face. So I deaded him! (Another dead conifer. 🙁 Lots of work for the local gardener in the autumn.)
  4. Dad told me the way to get rid of head lice was to rub in whisky and sand. They all get drunk and start throwing rocks at each other.
  5. Shows the importance of a robust backup policy. https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/messianic-prophecies-jesus-messiah-meaning/

    Earthquakes In One Place After Another...

    It’s now showing 2 measurements. The nearest one being 3.0. That makes more sense.

    Earthquakes In One Place After Another...

    Felt much stronger than last one but apparently further away and just 2.9

    Earthquakes In One Place After Another...

    Another one, much stronger. Gradually faded over half a minute or more. 11:54 BST about 3.5, I’ve no idea. Whole house shook, that was pretty scary. We also had another last week. edit: thes are within a couple of miles of an oilfield.

    Earthquakes In One Place After Another...

    I can’t believe this, I actual felt it! http://news.sky.com/story/surrey-earthquake-a-few-seconds-of-rumbling-in-dorking-11418995 We are just south of Gatwick Airport, below London. I said to Emma about 1:30 “I’m sure that was an earthquake, my bed just rocked backwards and forwards!” Well I never. edit: Our son says he couldn’t work out why his stuff fell off a shelf downstairs earlier. I looked around at the time but nothing else moved in this room. Sorry, but this is all new to me!
  10. iOS update available. (Apologies for also posting in other thread.)

    My off topic thread

    The next release of watchOS for the Apple Watch will feature a walkie-talkie function. I’m thinking of getting a second watch, so I have one for each wrist. But I would have to take them off at certain times. Mt 6:3 But you, when making gifts of mercy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, #reallyAwfulPun I would of course have to swap them over if I nipped over to France. #reallySorry
  12. Is that an African Grey in the cage? We had the exact same set up! Dad bought ‘Tufty’ 1975 and mum couldn’t look after him when dad died (1999) so we had to have him. This could be the weirdest reason ever to ask for an elder to visit: March 2017 Tufty fell off his perch for the last time. Emma and I were stuck upstairs, I was mute, and our son was having regular seizures. So Emma had to call “John” to come and bury our dead parrot in the back garden! #piningForTheFjords
  13. First I’ve heard of two different types of H2O with different ‘spins’. 🤷‍♂️ “Two different forms of water isolated for first time” http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-44305663 Surely they could have separated them by their spin by putting a big sink over the equator with a plug hole on either side. 👍

    The Royal Wedding

    Even on mute that preacher’s body language was ugly. Constantly trying to get confirmation that he was smart or whatever. Had to stop looking. Though I caught a glimpse of some of the celebs trying not to laugh as their ears were tickled. Did they do the wave from the balcony later at Buck Pal?
