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 favourite non-spiritual book is probably The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Though I haven't read it for decades.

    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

    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?
  2. But the tech people can just zoom and enhance indefinitely anyway.
  3. Scary to think it could just pack up like that. All I can think of is pulling down on the Home page of JW Library and seeing the latest date at the top and forcing a refresh, but I’m sure you’ve done that.

    The Royal Wedding

    I remember for the wedding of Charles and Diana (1981?) it being mentioned the police facing the crowd were under strict orders not to turn around when the royal carriage went past. I don’t remember any turning around, it’s what I was mostly watching for iirc! I expect these officers were under the same orders too, but there were plenty turning their head and watching. So - what were they for exactly, at that critical moment? #boringBitAlert I think I tend to worry for the whole of the security forces! I used to notice how unprotected police stations etc were that I had worked at. No parking restrictions, bollards etc. But a lot has changed in recent years according to Google Earth. (For example, we had some rooms to paint inside Reigate Fire Station/Training Centre/Command Centre? etc. They just told us the 4 digit PIN for the side door, beginning with zero, and let us wander about anywhere, carrying anything. It was about 30 years ago, but that was when the I.R.A. were very active.) Hey, you’ve made it this far. You can read this bit! I remember be about 20ft up a ladder at a police station painting an open window while all the unclaimed proceeds of crimes were laid out on a long table for victims to look over. I had no lapel badge or anything.

    My off topic thread

    We have a new 3-in-1 printer and I am excited to try it out. If someone could send me a PDF I will print it. Then scan it and send it to you as a PDF.
  6.  I think I must have 6 of the white Apple stickers they tend to give with iPads etc. I’ve been keeping them so I could stick them on something ironic that would make me laugh. I’ve thought of the toilet cistern but they wouldn’t really show up. Any suggestions?
  7. I’m getting problems when adding tags to pre-existing notes in Bible view etc. Adding new tags overwrites existing ones. Adding them to a note in Personal Study view is successful. iPad, iOS 11.3.1 Reported. ID: 407468717
  8. Now look what you’ve done! It’ll probably turn out true anyway.
  9. That is not showing on my version, just updated. (Windows 10 Home, English)
  10. The cable internet is down and I just have this slow connection through my phone. I might spend some time patching up the Steady State theory. (Or I could catch up with all the things I have yet to watch on JW Library.) #FredHoyleAppreciationSociety
  11. The thought of people knowingly fighting Jehovah in this way makes me shudder. Heb 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
  12. Oh I see. I thought you meant the peel was also sliced. I hadn’t really thought it through! (These -ough words are awkward.)
  13. If you carefully sow a thread in and out beneath the skin and pull it tight, you can trick someone so that the banana comes out in slices. Should you have an abundance of time on your hands!
  14. Several times over the last few months I have seen/read of people laughing at humans because we open bananas at the stem end. “Chimps know best!” they say. “They open them from the other end!” Thinking that perhaps humans were the fourth most intelligent life form on earth rather than the third, I gave it a try. Well it’s rubbish! Chimps are stupid and we should be showing them how to do it properly. #rantOver #neverAgain
