  3. I enjoy visiting Yellowstone Park here in the United States. It covers 3 States it so big! Wyoming, Montana and Idaho being the States. Since traveling is limited for me due to health issues, I appreciate webcams of the Park, that the National Parks Service provides. Is there a webcam of a beautiful spot that you can share where you live or have visited? https://www.nps.gov/yell/learn/photosmultimedia/webcams.htm
  4. Safe Rollercoasting

    The Swamp Fox at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! You're strapped in with a seatbelt that you are sure is going to break! The rust on the tracks, the creaking of the boards terrifies you...of course I rode it again!
  5. Safe Rollercoasting

    I recall when I took Debbie to Michigan's Adventure, she was a real sport riding Shivering Timbers!
  6. Safe Rollercoasting

    I am more scared of going to the dentist, than this ride!
  7. "Mental toughness and mental illness have nothing to due with each other"- NHL Coach Mike Babcock.
  8. First Amendment Audits

    Shawn, I chose not to include a link because there were lots of colorful metaphors (swearing) in the news story that were bleeped out, but still might offend. If you feel it should be moved go ahead and move.
  9. First Amendment Audits

    In the United States the First Amendment protects many rights. "The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prevents Congress from making any law respecting an establishment of religion, prohibiting the free exercise of religion, or abridging the freedom of speech, the freedom of the press, the right to peaceably assemble, or to petition for a governmental redress of grievances. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, as one of the ten amendments that constitute the Bill of Rights." As a form of expression, photography is protected in the U.S. by the First Amendment to the Constitution. But photographers are often forced to defend their right to take pictures (and record video) in public places. That has been especially true since the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the passage of the Patriot Act Basically what these auditors do is with digital cameras that either take photos or video they go to government facilities, i.e. Post Office, Police Departments and use their photo equipment to record officials or buildings. Sometimes this has led to intense interactions with such official's often calling the police. They are exercising their right to photograph in public, which the government has deemed there is no expectation of privacy in public places. They often stand on public sidewalks or easements to make sure they are legally what they are doing. Many are members of a group called Photography is not a Crime. They have encountered people who make up the law, lie about the legality of what they are doing. They are well prepared in what they do. I could see those who oppose us doing the same thing. Videoing or taking photos from the sidewalk or street of us entering a Kingdom Hall or out in the Ministry. We could be simply just standing doing Cart Witnessing too. My point is this, we have to be aware that people may try to antagonize us into a fight or look bad. I just watched one of these online and in fact, one of these First Amendment Auditors was being interviewed in Texas, when the news Videographer noticed Jehovah's Witnesses setting up a cart , for public witnessing. The television photographer asked is that Jehovah's Witnesses and read off the title on placard that goes with the cart. .
  10. Glad it works for you, but it may not be as easy for an older user as that was what they were looking for. I know of those methods too but have chosen to go with a more efficient direction.
  11. We have had issues using Amazon products working correctly with the jw library app as well as other users too. While a nice tablet, it also has limited apps available to use. Some users have had no issues. I would recommend another tablet for using the JW App. It's my view, but as someone who has had issues and switched to a Samsung, which I have never had an issue with it! What ever you choose, add an extra memory card to the device!
  12. I am not sure it's even shown at our Hall, have never heard an announcement. On a sad note my wife and I were talking to an older Sister who does not use electronic technology who does not see the videos unless they are part of the program. So I decided it was time to make some DVD copies for as she does have a DVD player. So sorry Hope!
  13. Been up since 3am, watching and listening to Dennis DeYoung & The Music of Styx. My favorite song is Desert Moon. The guitarist does an an amazing ending to this song.
  14. Wanna Dance!!!!

    I'm looking forward to being able to dance skate the way I once did, but with time and age not against me.
  15. Texas Church shooting
