On this day and every day –

God is in Control
. . . and His Grace is Sufficient, so . . .
Keep Looking Up


Hopefully, every Sunday, we can find something here that will build us up a little . . . give us a smile . . . and add some joy or peace, very much needed in all our lives.

“This day is holy to the Lord your God;
do not mourn nor weep.” . . .
“Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet,
and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared;
for this day is holy to our Lord.
Do not sorrow,
for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”


God Rejoices

Zephaniah 3:17 includes an interesting description of God rejoicing over people: “The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.”

God’s joy parallels the singing of His people in Jerusalem. “Sing aloud, O daughter of Zion!” (verse 14). This unit of poetry begins with the people of Jerusalem singing praise to God and ends with God’s joy over His people. God rejoices with His people, and He expresses joy when His people praise Him.

The question then is, why is God so joyful? This passage of Zephaniah speaks of a future time when God has ended His judgment upon Israel. All of their enemies have been destroyed, and Israel is entering a time of safety and blessing (verses 8, 15, 19). Zephaniah is speaking of the future millennial kingdom when the Messiah (Jesus) will reign with His people in Jerusalem (Isaiah 9:7; Revelation 20:1–6).

The word picture in Zephaniah 3:17 is full of emotion. God the Father is the One who holds His daughter Jerusalem and rejoices in her presence. Just as a loving parent cradles a child and sings out of love, so God’s joy over His people is born of His great love. After a time of hardship, our loving Lord dries His people’s tears, comforts their hearts, and welcomes them to a new world.

Finally, Jesus also taught in the New Testament that “there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents” (Luke 15:10). It’s clear there is rejoicing in God’s presence when those who are lost repent and are made right with God (Ephesians 2:8–9; John 3:16).


For the kingdom of God is . . .
righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
(Romans 14:7)

It’s a glorious Sunday in the Puget Sound area.

Cloudy, with drizzle.

We’ll have to wait and see [sunrise about 5:15 am] if any sun shows up.

Praise the Lord.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Praise the Lord for every day, rain or shine!

Gail Combs

Pgroup, We would have been very happy to take some of that rain off your hands. It has been in the high 90s all week and my grass is now crispy critter.

WORSE the FIRE ANTS ran out of food and are showing up in the trucks and every where else! I put down feed in my stalls and went to get a pony, only to find the ants had swarmed the feed bowl. Heck I was carrying a bucket with feed measured out, put it down, went to get a pony out of a paddock. He was eagerly waiting to be haltered and then fed. 5 minutes later the bucket had been swarmed by the ants. I have been bitten head to toe and so have my poor ponies.

The last few days has been place in stalls for worming and foot care and ready the fallow paddocks for the move to new paddocks…

Luckily Walgreens has Aloe Vera Spray with vitamin E so I can treat the bare spots where the poor animals have rubbed the hair off. Food Lion has been out of fresh aloe and I do not want to cut up my house plant.

I have never seen a problem like this before.

cthulhu

Do they react to diatomaceous earth?

cthulhu

Alternatively, how do they like the “3 parts sugar, one part borax, damp until sludgy” recipe?

Gail Combs

I use borax around the doors. I tried the  “3 parts sugar, one part borax” last year and they avoided it…. DARN IT!

cthulhu

They might be hungrier this year.

Gail Combs

I think I will stick to the Dawn soap method since that seems to work very well. And as I said we do have stuff that works around the base of the house.

When we had it built I back filled the foundation with GRAVEL and not soil so we can use a high powered killer around the base. I also had a drain put in that goes to an underground dry well a bit down hill from the house.

Gail Combs

I have the diatomaceous earth. I just need a flour sifter to spread it. (On the list for Monday’s shopping) It is going around the garden area.

We also have an ant bait for around the house that works very well.

The other option is Dawn dish soap. It seemed to work very well on the one BIG mound I tried it on.

How to Kill Fire Ants

 I mixed about one tablespoon of Dawn dishwashing liquid with a half gallon of hot water, and applied it directly to the mounds, a full one-half gallon to each bed to ensure that the soil was well saturated. 

Killing Fire Ants With Dawn Dish Soap

Here are the steps for killing fire ants with dawn dish soap: … Add 1-2 tablespoons of dawn dish soap and 1/2 gallon of water in a bucket. Combine the mixture thoroughly until it becomes soapy.

Supplies

  • 1-2 Tablespoons of Dawn Dish Soap
  • 1/2 Gallon of Water
  • A Bucket
  • A Watering Can

Instructions

  1. Add 1-2 tablespoons of dawn dish soap and 1/2 gallon of water in a bucket.
  2. Combine the mixture thoroughly until it becomes soapy.
  3. Once you’re done, transfer the liquid into a watering can.
  4. Spritz the foamy concoction all over the ant mound and live fire ants.
  5. Repeat the process for a few days until the entire colony of fire ants dies.

Note – Make sure this sudsy water gets deep inside the mound. This hack is the best option to fight against mild fire ant infestations.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I used a watering can. I first soaked the ground around the mound and THEN used a hoe to dig up the eggs before pouring the rest all over the eggs and ants.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The problem is having a good 15 acs to treat and 100+ ac that harbor new recruits. AND TOO MANY OTHER PROJECTS.

I am still cutting down scrub and putting in fence.🙄 My back HATES ME!

Current project is to get all the ponies moved to back paddocks. Finish repairs/upgrades on Front paddocks, mow, and drag the paddocks AND THEN treat the ant mounds.

Having BOTH of my riding lawn mowers break down has not helped in getting my projects done.

mollypitcher5

Gail, you’re a marvel. It’s hard doing the lion’s share of work that in years past your husband shouldered a lot of it too. ( i def understand the situation, it’s mine also)
Hope the mowers are repaired soon.

Gail Combs

Actually, I met a guy at the fuel station coming home from a gig yesterday. He had a trailer full of old lawn tractors so I struck up a conversation. He repairs them! so I got his number.

We just do not have the thousands to put into buying new, esp when they are CHINESE SCHIFF!

mollypitcher5

Lucky break!
Yep..ours went kaput too, it was so old couldn’t be fixed. That left 2 push mowers. One was broken so I sent it to repair and will use the bigger one for mini bush grinding ( leaves,limbs, etc) Whew the new ones are so pricey now. No budget for that sadly
The live oaks are beautiful but drop stuff all year long, make-a-me-crazy!

mollypitcher5

My slice of paradise ( work) doesn’t even compare to yours. You’re an inspiration seriously.

Gail Combs

It keeps us young. Hubby still does a lot as long as he does not have to stand motionless without something to lean on.

We did break down and purchase a new (small) diesel tractor. And we also have a very old tractor that we hitched a bush hog to. Since the old tractor does not have a bucket, that bush hog is NOT going to get taken off! I am not going thru trying to get that piece of equipment back on it again!

I just want the lawn tractor for mowing around the edges & under the fence wire. Doing it with a push mower, given all the ant mounds is a real trial.

For some reason fire ants LOVE electricity so you find them IN the solar fence chargers….

Gail Combs

We are lucky since we have people who do not believe the ‘too old to fix’ idea.

You should have seen the vintage machines this guy had on his trailer!

So, this is what, day 2 of the Great Pretending that the whole world didn’t know Brandon is a mental patient for the last 3+ years?

I don’t know how they think they can get away with it.

There’s really only two possibilities, which I am going to share with anyone I encounter who claims to have been surprised by Brandon being a babbling idiot.

Either they haven’t been paying any attention, at all, to anything, for the last 3+ years, and Friday night was the first time they have seen POTATUS since the 2020 election — in which case their thoughts on anything having to do with politics are willfully ignorant at best…

Or

They did know the whole time, but they were chickens who pretended not to know, just like the goofs in the fable who applauded the naked emperor’s new clothes.

So pick one… blindingly ignorant, or chicken?

Go ahead, try to come up with a plausible Door #3… 😂

Well you did say:

“… try to come up with a plausible Door #3…”

I think Evil Liar is very plausible and probably likely.

scott467

I guess I could try offering that option.

1) “are you really so detached from what’s going on in the world that you haven’t seen POTATUS since 2020?”

or

2) “you knew the whole time, but you were too chicken to say anything?”

or

3) “you’re just an Evil Liar?”

I suspect anyone who actually is an Evil Liar will try to sneak by with saying they’re just a great big chicken instead 😁

cthulhu

What about the detached evil lying chickens?

Gail Combs

Correction: the trouncing was 3 days ago. I checked, and the search result I saw with a date said June 28th, but when I double checked the article at the link, it was the article that was dated the 28th. The Brandon implosion was the day before.

Trump would not lie about the fact that it’s the SAME Joe Biden. I refuse to believe he would cover for doubles on this.

TheseTruths

I refuse to believe he would cover for doubles on this.

I agree.

TradeBait2

Same here. They have probably used them at times in controlled environments, but not in key events where it would be easily recognized.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I will be totally honest – the eyes of whoever was there, looked weirdly off and deep-set under taught skin, and there was part of me doubting it was the real Biden. However, I realize that TV cosmetologists slather these guys with makeup, and old men get very hollow and different-looking eyes, so I was able to dismiss those thoughts – barely. Even the amount of eye-liner that they put on J.D. Vance looks damn near ancient Egyptian, and I find it a bit perverse against his otherwise macho appearance.

All that said, the man we saw was very much in a direct linear progression downward as we have been watching Biden for the last 16 years. Biden was already laughably incapable and early senile in 2007 – I remember calling him “Obama’s insurance policy” from the beginning. People asked if Obama was keeping him in 2012 for exactly that reason, as it was even more obvious that Biden was unfit. People doubted his ability to make criminal plans in 2016 – clearly he was still capable of evil – but he seemed out of it through most of Trump’s term, to the point that his entry in 2020 seemed like a joke.

Four years of decline at the same rate. And here we are.

Aubergine

Wolf, Biden has always been demonstrably STUPID.

I would bet his I.Q. is below 100. He is wildly ambitious, and a total narcissist who “made his bones” on the death of his first wife and child. Without that event, he would never have been in government. The sympathy vote put him there, and his corruptibility kept him there.

Joe is and has been owned from the beginning.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Very well said. Yes – all the plagiarism – all the groping and grabbing – all the lies. He’s a MORON.

Biden is like the just slightly more intelligent evil twin of this “good moron” that I worked with in my youth. The guy was ambitious in a good way – trying to excel at the simple things he was capable of doing, but also amusingly susceptible to his own bodily or emotional desires, and constantly in need of correction and control by his handlers. Because they were good people, he was a good person.

Gail Combs

UNI-PARTY!

“The chief problem of American political life for a long time has been how to make the two congressional parties more national and international. The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so the that American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.LINK

Quote from Tragedy and Hope, 1966 by Carroll Quigley, member of Council on Foreign Relations, mentor to Bill Clinton.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I should add, that abortion is the red herring they toss out every election to DIVERT attention from the really important stuff.

They KNOW the issue will have the right and the left at each others throats and thus NOT paying attention to anything else.

I think Trump handles it well.

Now it is a STATE issue.

it seems something is missing in there. maybe it’s just early and no coffee…lol

“peace and prosperity or war” and then he says “and no war”. so following the pattern maybe he should have said “war or no war”
it just seems to stumble there.
I’ll go have coffee.

well I’ve had coffee and it still seems off to me…lol

To me it looks like he meant “peace and prosperity vs. war and poverty”, but instead segued into war or no war as a different comparison. Perhaps he was feeling the crowd and wanted to emphasize war vs. peace.

This is true. Rather than focusing on this year’s Murthy v. Missouri disappointment over social media, maybe we should be concentrating our efforts on Wickard v. Filburn next year.

TheseTruths

Is a case involving that decision before the Court?

TheseTruths

I’m guessing not since the SCOTUS year is ending. I hope someone does bring a challenge to it.

cthulhu

Not this year.

pgroup2

There are administrative aspects of this excrement case which could be argued in addition to reviewing its primary holdings on due process.

A challenge to the precedent of Filburn would give Thomas the opportunity to expound on the due process aspects. This case reminds me of the status of the colonies just prior to the Revolution.

Not true, but so right! 😆

TheseTruths

She was his babysitter for his sons.
She is his babysitter for himself.
Same woman, same role, different “babies.” 🙂

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

OK, Jill did “babysit” his elementary-aged kids when they were publicly involved, after Neilia died, and they pretended to have found each other. But IMO Jill was NOT the “teenaged baby-sitter” of Biden’s kids (as the rumor goes), prior to her being Bill Stevenson’s wife, and beginning her affair with Biden.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Complicated business. So many lies hiding the truth.

TheseTruths

Yes. She baby-sat the boys, and it was public, but she was not a teenager. I have research that shows that.

holly

She married her first husband in 1970 when she was 19. Divorced him when she was 26. Maybe she started babysitting the Biden children when she was 19?

Last edited 24 days ago by holly
Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Possible that babysitting began before 1972, but unlikely, IMO.

Jill’s ex, Bill Stevenson, says that he and Jill were married from 1970 to 1975, and that Jill met Biden in 1972 when Bill became a donor and volunteer for Biden’s first Senate campaign.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8635281/Jill-Biden-cheated-husband-Joe-ex-claims.html

I have found no evidence that Jill knew Biden before 1972. However, Bill claims that Jill and Biden began an affair after their meeting in 1972, and that the affair caused the breakup in 1974 when he learned about it.

Biden was caught driving Jill’s car and actually got it into a fender-bender in 1974. It’s entirely possible that Jill was interacting with Biden’s kids at any time from early 1972 (while Neilia was alive) through 1974.

Did she volunteer to babysit the kids during the 1972 campaign? Could be.

There are PICTURES of Jill with the kids, camping out, in 1975 and later.

The most salacious rumors are that Jill was “tHe BAbYsiTTer” , implying that she was a hired teenage babysitter. IMO that is overplay of the real scandal – that Biden met Jill, and may have started an affair, shortly before his wife died in a drunken car wreck with the kids. Most certainly, he began having an affair with her AFTER Neilia died.

Neilia Hunter Biden (née Hunter; July 28, 1942 – December 18, 1972) was an American teacher and the first wife of Joe Biden, the 46th president of the United States. She died in a car crash in 1972 with their one-year-old daughter, Naomi. Their two sons, Beau and Hunter, were critically injured but survived the incident. Her death occurred six weeks after her husband’s election to the U.S. Senate.

We know Biden is a liar and a cheat. My money is that his affair with Jill started pronto in 1972, and contributed to Neilia’s end in one way or another. But at a minimum, he took up with the married Jill Stevenson in 1973 or 1974 at the latest.

pgroup2

So you’re saying she did not commit adultery with SlowJoe? That certainly is not my understanding.

holly

Jill did commit adultery. There are stories circulating that she first met Joe at a political rally, but I think they met when she babysat his children.

Her first husband said Joe used to come by their house to ask him to donate to his election campaign.

Locals in Neilia’s hometown of Auburn, NY maintain she intentionally pulled out in front of the truck because she knew about Jill and Joe. Suicide.

Neilia died in 1972 at the age of 30.

Since we know so much about Hunter’s exploits it’s my feeling that a lot of it was learned behavior. Growing close to a grieving SIL not uncommon but bet $$ that Joe pushed for it because of his obsession with Beau’s death.
( From NY Post..Hunter — who was still married to his estranged wife Kathleen at the time — said he and Hallie were “incredibly lucky” that their family supported the unusual liaison after Beau died of cancer in May 2015.)

anyhoo , Biden’s narcissism, bravado and lack of empathy may have been in play flaunting an affair with Jill..

Also Biden’s first wife had three kids, all just babies. She had NO TIME for Joe.

The car ‘accident’ was December 18, 1972

Beau was three years old — born February 3, 1969
Hunter was two — born February 4, 1970
Naomi was one — born November 8, 1971

I had no idea those kids were that close in age.

Neither did I until I started writing that comment.

He certainly kept the poor woman pregnant.

I wonder if she had another ‘bun in the oven’ at the time of the accident.

If she just found she was pregnant again AND Ole’ Joe was cheating it could easily have flipped her out.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

OMG, I had not considered the fact that she might have been pregnant again.

Absolutely not saying that. I believe the statements by Bill Stevenson – who divorced Jill because she was having an affair with Biden. I don’t necessarily believe that he is telling ALL of the truth. Things could be WORSE than what he’s saying.

Since CDC is an administrative agency, it is no longer entitled to Chevron deference. Somebody should sue on the grounds that CDC is giving unsupported scientific advice which violates the consumer protection statutes.

When the bastards claim that CDC is not a company earning profit, bring all the dots into the case and connect them – Pfizer, Moderna, etc. to Fauci and his ilk.

University study: ‘vast DEI bureaucracy’ negatively impacting U.S. Armed Forces

A new Arizona State University study suggests that Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts in the United States military are ineffective.

The study done by the university’s Center for American Institutions argued that there is a emphasis on training new soldiers about social issues like “unconscious bias” and “intersectionality” in a way the center says runs contrary to typical American ideals. The study examined DEI plan’s in different sector of the military, including DEI office staffing and education at academies like West Point.

“The massive DEI bureaucracy, its training and its pseudo-scientific assessments are at best distractions that absorb valuable time and resources,” the executive summary states. “At worst they communicate the opposite of the military ethos: e.g. that individual demographic differences come before team and mission”…

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

That’s an excellent statement there.

Any unconscious biases of individual soldiers and officers (and I do believe that these exist) need to be dealt with on an individual basis, IMO.

TheseTruths

Yes. I was struck by this statement about DEI indoctrination (my term): It communicates “the opposite of the military ethos: e.g. that individual demographic differences come before team and mission.”

I would think that putting ideas and barriers before team and mission is the surest way to destroy the strength of the military, which I believe is the goal.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Exactly!!!

A university study and they cannot get their grammar right. “DEI plan’s”

Simple grammar, the difference between possessive and plural, and in the case above, putting an apostrophe in a verb, has been neglected in schools in order to push social indoctrination.

It really bugs me to see apostrophes where they do not belong.

I did so much vacuuming on Saturday that I had to empty the Dyson twice. I’m consolidating from my big build days during the last week — I currently have 26T of disk space online and available (if not exactly convenient) in my home network, and can access the data on the hard drives that got pulled when my stuff got compromised in 2015 (one at a time). I have stuff available to add another 18T and another hard disk read station, except I need to find a particular thumbdrive.

  1. I’ve been building it for a while.
  2. I had 15 computers online when “Ira Weatheral” dropped a keylogger on me, including client data.
  3. I have extensive DVD and CD libraries that I don’t want to have cluttering my living space.
  4. I’m a CPA…..I’m drowning in paperwork. Somewhere around here, I have my personal bank statements from 1984. All of this is getting scanned, backed-up, original paper shredded, and sorted.

Still wondering if that dude was agency, foreign or domestic.

I think he is just how he appeared….an older, clever adult with the social skills of a pre-teen. The way he melted-down when challenged was not structured and controlled the way any halfway-competent agency would allow.

Some notes on organization……

When I was a kid (IIRC, 4th grade), I was industriously making sailboats to float in my backyard mud puddle. I would take little pieces of scrap wood and nail them together. My father worked for the City of Los Angeles and would get things from their surplus auctions, so I made some of my sailboats on the top of an executive desk that he had stashed in the garage, leaving some interesting nail holes.

This resulted in a tendency to strictly define the scope of what I was doing. In its current incarnation, I tend to throw all the pieces and tools of a thing into a “project box”. I tend to use the trays that hold six or 12-packs of beverages in cases, because they are constructed properly — project boxes that leak parts are not good.

The Fiancee had a pair of +2 reading glasses come apart (drop a lens) and was looking to superglue them back together because the screw seemed nonstandard. First thing was get a project box. Second was put aluminum foil for a workplace in the project box and outfit it with a tube of superglue and toothpicks. We also decided that a small clamp might work to hold the glasses while the glue set, and she needed to wear gloves. She then went off to attempt the project.

I was informed that the execution resulted in superglue on the lens, so all the dead soldiers were rolled-up in the aluminum foil and discarded, while the box, clamp, extra superglue, and extra toothpicks were returned to stock. Future projects of the sort would involve taping over the lens. That’s the way things should go.

OTOH, a substantial amount of my projects end up missing a crucial piece or tool and can be suspended for an indefinite time. I was fortunate enough to encounter a pizza place having an out-of-business sale and picked up a bunch of pizza holders — the kind that suspend a pie over a table (ask if you’ve never seen one and I’ll dig up a pic). These are GREAT for stacking partially-loaded project boxes without them going wandering, and have been a great productivity aid.

I was thinking that you were describing the ones that are circles at the top & bottom & a curving metal joining said circles between. Yours looks much more efficient.

NEAT!!!

Now I know what I can do with all those short pieces of high tensile wire I have laying around waiting to be taken to the scrap metal place!

I probably need to use the torch to get a decent bend.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I’ve been working with that stuff. Man, it doesn’t want to bend!

Gail Combs

SPRONG…..

Try bending it and an insulator cover around a post. Once you have it ‘sort of’ bent around the post you either find you forgot to slip the 2 clamps on… Go back to step one… or you twist the end of the wire around the standing part.

We have been putting in a lot of H braces so we can up grade to high tensile. Much of my fencing is now 25 to 30 years old and has to be replaced.

https://practicalfarmers.org/2011/08/building-high-tensile-fence/

H-Brace
They are a MUST. We tried other options like concrete plus lag screws with an ‘outrigger’ to prevent the post from leaning in the direction of the tension. Nice idea but it doesn’t really work well.

comment image

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I have H Braces.

It’s high tensile electric being retrofitted onto a smooth wire fence…which in turn is under pretty high tension.

The high tensile electrical is by FAR harder to work with than double strand smooth wire.

Gail Combs

BOY don’t I know it!

We re-strung 10 paddocks over the last year adding H braces and gates and stuff.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I’m trying to get ready for cattle…stat. Before I just had to let them wander onto my property becuase the subdivision had a grazing lease. Now I need to do that myself and keep them in. What a hassle.

Gail Combs

At least they are not GOATS!

I have 8 strand high tensile and they just DIVE thru it. With cows you can go 3 or 4 strand and horses as little as 2. Ponies, the little buggers need 4 strands.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Well I have four strands of smooth wire with stays. That plus one line of 8000V goodness ought to get the message across. And I just had a very productive couple of hours after the rainstorm but before ducking fark out. Basically, I have to wire across two gates, run a line out to the fence protecting a tree and power that…and it’s done.

mollypitcher5

A new venture for you? Cattle. Can’t wait to hear how everything goes.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Old venture slightly different. I don’t own the cattle, I just lease the pasture to a guy who has them.

mollypitcher5

Nice. Good luck with the fences.

Gail Combs

I see someone else has found a good use for those nice flat trays canned drinks come in. I also save the black/blue what ever polystyrene trays that produce or meat sometimes comes in. Only problem is the tray MELTS in the heat around here!

Given the cost of totes these days ($10 & up) I save containers. I have a lot of pony project stuff that gets placed in containers and stored on book shelves.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Elmer’s glue and four of those cardboard trays they sell one liter bottles in, and I can make up a dandy tote that will hold 12 one liter bottles (without the chance of them falling over and wrecking the tray) or other things.

cthulhu

What does that look like?

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

It ends up being a box tall enough to hold…all the way up…12 one liter bottles (the generic Walmart ones). There are some gaps in the bottom corners because the “tray” that serves as the bottom isn’t quite a rectangle (it has corners cut off). But it’s good for, e.g., carrying larger items like groceries.

Gail Combs

For carrying groceries in the back of the pick-up, I like the veggie bins I pick up for free at the Flea Market (Twice the length of a milk crate) The are built to stack too. 😍

To get from the truck to the front steps I love my Gorilla cart from Tractor Supply. It will carry 800 pounds.

Just to lift the curtain a bit (and with full consideration of security and disclosure issues)….

You can get minimalist small computers that have a decent processor, 4 or 8G of RAM, and a bunch of USB3 or better ports, on the cheap. Here’s an example, which is not necessarily one I am using — https://www.ama zon.com/HP-EliteDesk-Business-Computer-Processor/dp/B08JSMKFC2 — that’s $120.

You can then add fast USB drives — again, not necessarily ones I own — like https://www.ama zon.com/Toshiba-Canvio-Advance-Portable-External/dp/B08JKCWRTD — that’s 4T for $95.

Then you have to configure the “server” to run headless, reformat the drives, and come up with a backup strategy……then compare your cost to something like
https://www.ama zon.com/QNAP-TR-004-Enclosure-Attached-hardware/dp/B07K4RC7X9

The thing is, your “roll-your-own” can deal with any weird configuration issues as you encounter them.

In 2015, when my systems were breached, I started moving to Linux and trying to rebuild. One of my first purchases was a $1000 RAID appliance for storage…..and its first software upgrade dropped support for Linux NFS. It has been idle for about nine years. It’s a top-level vendor, as well.

Putting together your own network storage solution from cheap generic parts has a lot to be said for it.

I had a phone conversation today with a very nice young chap from Pakistan. This is how it went:

“Hello, how are you today?”

“I’m very well thank you for asking, how are you and more to the point, WHO are you?”

“Madam, my name is Sanjit, and I’m calling you from Microsoft.”

“Microsoft, is that a city in Pakistan?”

” No Madam, MICROSOFT, the computer company. I’m calling to tell you that we have found a problem with your computer.”

“REALLY, that’s quite concerning.”

“Yes Madam, it can become very serious indeed but thankfully I will be able to fix it for you.”

“No, I meant it’s very concerning because I don’t HAVE a computer.”

“You don’t?”

“No.”

“Ahh, it must be a problem on your laptop Madam.”

“Don’t have one.”

“Ipad?”

“Nope.”

“Tablet?”

“I have none of those things. As a matter of fact, I don’t even have a telephone.”

After a few seconds of silence he said “Madam, you are lying to me now!”

I said “Well, you started it!!” and put the phone down.

Yes – this is true. However, this has been going for over a hundred years. The RINOs and Establishment GOP have done the same things.

Why is it obvious and revealed in their votes that 80% (approx) of our elected (appointed) officials are scared to death of a populist movement taking over? When the Tea Party and MAGA become enemies of the money laundering and power structure, they go on the offensive by weaponizing government against them. They continue the process by importing illegal invaders by the tens of millions. They openly killed a POTUS and tried to kill another one over it.

The only path to becoming the United States of America is through We the People. We have to wake up as a citizens and assert our Constitutionally granted rights.

BREAKING: Walt Disney Television’s Director of Production/Finance, Sohrab “Dave” Makker reveals Disney won’t hire anyone “who’s not white or not Jewish” for C-Suite roles, confirming discriminatory hiring practices detailed in OMG’s ‘The Disney Tapes: Part 1.’

Makker, who tracks diversity in annual reports, reveals that the reports “tell us the diverse cast of members that are in there,” and that he has witnessed “the number count go up.”

Makker says Disney prioritizes LGBTQ stories for children, stating, “We insert diversity when it’s not really organic to the story,” admitting shows have “flopped” because “the audience didn’t connect” to forced diversity.

He calls Disney CEO Bob Iger “corrupt,” saying, “He just wants to stay in power.” He proceeds to criticize Elon Musk, calling him a “narcissist” driven by attention, yet agrees with Musk’s call for Iger’s firing.

Stay tuned for ‘The Disney Tapes: Part 3’…

I think she goes in as VP. I think they hoped to do it AFTER the second Biden term was secured, but this is now Plan B. Move Kamala up to Joe’s slot and drop Moochelle in as the VP, so she’s not toxic if Trump wins.

The black fake ballots in the corrupt counties will win, and this guarantees that the cheaters will risk prison to do it.

Comey’s and FIB’s assassination of Clementa Pinckney bought the hatred needed to do anything to stop Trump. So smart, but so evil.

The AME faction will do ANYTHING to put Moochelle in the White House.

Here is Pinckney, three years before he stood up to Hillary Clinton – and was swiftly turned from a speed bump for her, into a rallying cry.

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me. 

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

MISCONCEPTION 

When people talk and make some sense;
There is understanding and recompense;
The ease at which words move and flow;
The comforting contact is what we know!

And yet these words if misapplied;
Can twist and turn and be denied;
The meaning can – in fact – imbue;
Till nothing contained therein is true!

Go back to where you once began;
When all was fine and peaceful man;
Before the words got mixed and twitted;
Taken out of context and retrofitted!

We cannot see inside of another;
Nor can we know the mind of our brother;
What spurs him on or touches him;
What lights his world or makes it dim!

What we can see is his reaction;
The ups and downs and distraction;
We know not where he went or why;
We know not how he went awry!

We pray and search our hearts to see;
If something changed between she and he;
And when we do we soon discover;
There is truth in there we must uncover!

No one can control the outcome to be;
Only God has the power the heart to see;
Only God can bless or curse the union;
Only He can dispel – quell the confusion!

So when two people determine their fate;
Based on fallacy – undermined by hate;
There is no conclusion – and no debate;
No good can come – so they separate!

What once was working for the good of all;
Is covered by a thick, black, ugly pall;
And all because of a misconception;
Words that were twisted in ill perception!

Very true!

This poem really expresses the need to understand what is said – to try to see deeply to what was likely and honestly intended – not that by which we are quickly offended. The peace of true understanding, over the excitement of confrontation.

What would the Prince of Peace counsel? Choose wisdom!

Read – read – and read again – and don’t answer until an answer rooted in sympathetic understanding is found. Because that most likely IS the answer.

I love that you expressed the inner psychological aspects of this thing which is very difficult to describe in conventional terms!

R.I.P. PHC

GOD’S GOT YOU, PATRICK

Rest and relax – God’s Got You, Patrick
He’s holding you tight – fast and right quick
He’s working His vast Almighty Hands
All over your body as He commands
And His Spirit o’re you rightly demands!

When we praise God – Heavenly skies open
His angels are dispersed – healing holden
They carry oils – they’ll pour out on you
You cannot escape – whatever you do
So rest and relax – enjoy what you’re due.

The power of prayer unlike any other
It’s effects are uncanny – it will smother
With so much love you cannot contain
From it we will ne’er stop nor refrain
We will keep on – in its throes we’ll remain.

How does it feel, Patrick – surrounded in love
Can you feel the healing sent from above
Can you exalt in what God has in store
Wouldn’t it be great to suffer no more
As God disperses what He knows is the cure.

He can touch and heal you in the blink of an eye
He can relieve the pain for good – that is no lie
He can raise you up from that place you stay
He can free your limbs and take you away
Where you will live – to dance – another day.

Sing us a song, Patrick – a song of hope
Before you take anymore of that dope
Sing us a happy tune – so we can smile
Just as we smile – when you joke all the while
Sing us a song, Pat – one that will beguile.

Know we trust in God – when it comes to you
We acknowledge Him – whatever we do
We lean not on our own understanding
Although – at times – we can be demanding
We leave it all up to His commanding.

The power of His Spirit – can touch and heal
It can repair what is broken – to reveal
The culprit that has taken your health away
Can be defeated – ne’er to return nor stay
And we will all Praise God another day!

PATRICK THE PUNK

There once was a man named PHC
Whose comments were quite absurd – you see
From out of the blue
He’d come gunning for you
Till upside down your thinking it be! 

At times he could be somewhat serious
His wisdom was a might mysterious 
You could sure guarantee
A giggle there would be
Off balance till you were delirious!

Heard he said on the Open Thread 
Pinnings we’ve all come to dread
He was packing his bags
Without affixing the tags
One might think he was out of his head.

Oh noes – this cannot be true
What is the matter with you
Well you see it is like this
My body has run amiss
There is nothing I can do!

From anger to denial – a wild trip
Bargaining and depression – a quick quip
Acceptance is the longest
But definitely the strongest
And essential to getting a grip.

Thought Patrick was being a punk
Maybe he could even be drunk 
How could this be
What are you telling me
Whatever happened to your spunk?

Not going to cry – no – no not I
There’s something stuck in my eye
Must be a speck
Oh – what the heck
It will leave on its own by and by.

So we’ll fast and pray and pray some more
That will rev up your spirit for sure
Helpless we feel
Hopeless we’ll be 
If we do not see you anymore! 

Our comfort now lies in the Lord
Despair we surely can’t afford 
We will talk with you
We will walk with you
With faith, hope, and love outpoured.

Absent from the body – present with Him
As the light in your eyes is growing dim
We will lift you up
Till with Him you sup
And you leave your special Treehouse limb.

MISSING ‘PAT IN THE HAT’

Don’t mean to bug you, ‘Cowboy Hat Pat’
Your Fan Club is here – where is it you at
We can only imagine what it is like for you
Keeping up with all you must have to do
We entertain daily – hoping for a ‘smile’
We just want to love you for a little while!

One by one – we come peeking in on you
Hoping all is copacetic there, too
We have no idea with what you must deal
We just come to share a warm breakfast meal
We pray your rest was peaceful and serene
As for your dreams – we hope they’re not obscene!

We’re unsure what the theme of the day will be
But – it will not be long before we shall see
We have fun – tell jokes – share pictures too
We try to make your days happy – not blue
So tell us – Pat – what’s up with you today
We’re anxiously waiting for you just to say!

We’ve been keeping busy waiting for word
Don’t think our concern is at all absurd
We just need our daily fix of ‘Pat in the Hat’
So there’s nothing more here than just that
We want to get the party ready for tonight
There’s dishes to prepare and we’re uptight!

Peek-a-Boo Pat – why you hiding again
You make us crazy – you know that oh man
If you’re having a party with angels ok
We would not want it any other way
If they are watching over you sleeping
We are happy they are you good keeping!

So – what is it – Pat – we can do for you
Aside from waiting for your presence due
Can we make you coffee – some breakfast 
Or will it be brunch by the time you at last
Make your appearance – to cheers of all here
Where are you hiding – Oh, Patrick Dear?

Pardon our insistence – you left us wandering
Here in Patrick Land – we’re left pondering
Are you doing well – sleeping in peace
This anxiety – will it ever cease
We will stay and pray – all is well right now
Cause God is in control of thee and thou!
