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. My notes from last night’s meeting: “Letter Temple farm visitor centre. Bookings must be made by baptised publishers.” I am surprised that there is a visitor’s centre at a construction site. I assume it is away from work areas? When is it planned to be completed?
  2. The tweet was a few hours before the eclipse. Marques has wisely decided to delete it. I’m sayin’ nuffing!
  3. Ages ago my dad recalled smoking a piece of glass (reread that!) so he could look at a partial eclipse. A coworker wanted a look and promptly wiped the smoke off and held it up. (Emma just wound me up saying that she can’t watch the eclipse on TV because she hasn’t got the special glasses.)
  4. In 1999 the western tip of England had totality and I had half-planned to travel there. Of course it poured down there! But it was clear where I was, c. 20 Miles south of London, and we saw a very nice 97%. I had been planning what I would try to do since about 1974 when I saw a poster about the solar system and the eclipse while queueing for my lunch at school! That’s also when I decided it would be neat to memorise the order of the planets, MVEMJSUN(P). (This one fact will get you a job anywhere. Unemployed hate me.)
  5. Someone said to me they went on holiday and their wife mentioned the lovely smell of the “Mentholyptus trees”.
  6. I suppose it depends how that memory was formed in the first place. Just as a sound, or as something written. And the initial letter might seem familiar because it is capitalised just like how we probably learned the alphabet. (Nort sure about Sesame Street.) Puzzling over dreams can be interesting. (Not their interpretation!) Yesterday I dreamed I needed to buy a bike. When I got to the huge store it was shut in the middle of the afternoon. Presumably because my brain had decided it was too difficult to render all those complicated parts with my old G.P.U.
  7. I find it interesting how memories are stored. Sometimes I can’t remember someone’s name but if I go through the alphabet a letter will stand out and is usually the initial of the first name or surname. Does this work for you?
  8. Never mind. Perhaps I am over complicating it.
  9. Does the riddle need rephrasing or is it best left as it is? ”When he said a lie ... when he said something true...?
  10. This picture is doing the rounds. The car belongs to a local sister who is a gardener.
  11. Be careful with your eels.
  12. I thought they were supposed to be keeping planetary bodies sterile, so they can check for life? Anyway, I've had a wash and I still want to go to the moon.
  13. With all due respect I've been sort of expecting her death for a long time. It will feel a bit strange with Charles as king - for a couple of days, but that's about it for me. I think the death of Diana will remain of greater impact because of the suddenness and her age. I wonder how she will cope if Prince Philip goes first? Very sad either way.
  14. Because of the glorious weather I now have a tanned face. Not because I have actually been outside but because I realised how pale I looked and decided to use my facial tanning thingy. I've used it before but it takes ages to have a noticeable effect so I thought I would hold it right up to my face. So now I have an uneven tan because, of course, when the machine is right up to my face then my nose is half the distance and gets four times the radiation. (Inverse square. Law. Not nose.) Not that anyone looks at my mug anyway.
