The Roof

June 2, 2017 1 comment

IMG_4021I needed a new roof.  The last time I went away on a trip, the roof began to leak and we had to use pots to catch the water; furthermore I noticed several new water spots growing on the ceiling of the living room.  I decided a seamless metal roof over the existing shingles would assure me many trouble-free years without leaks.  Since I didn’t want to do the work myself, I needed to find a contractor.  I decided it would be nice to include a carport in the project so it would match the rest of the house.

Crowds

January 23, 2017 Leave a comment

There have been many instances of fake news in mainstream media of late.  Most of the time words are used to misrepresent reality, but pictures may also be used.

Recently the New York Times published an article comparing the sizes of the crowds attending Obama’s and Trump’s inaugurations.  The message of the Times article is that very few people supported Trump by attending the inauguration, and by inference Trump is an illegitimate president.

The Storm

December 20, 2016 Leave a comment

It was all over the Internet.  Every news outlet imaginable carried a headline that went something like this, “Biblical Storm Protects Israel.”  Many Youtube headlines proclaimed “…SENT BY GOD…”; each showed the same video of the storm.

What’s all the fuss about?  On Dec. 1, 2016, about 8 am an unusual storm appeared on the Syrian side of Israel’s border in the Golan Heights, just as Israeli soldiers were conducting routine operations on the Israeli side.  The storm, a combination of wind, dust, and rain, did not cross into Israel, but formed a stationary protective barricade against potential attackers.  This is the exact same location where Israeli soldiers had been attacked by ISIS several weeks prior.

Some people attributed the storm to an act of God.  Others simply tried to dismiss it as an “ordinary” weather phenomenon.  But it is rather strange that the storm obeyed a political boundary defined by humans, and did not cross the border fence.  Certainly one would not expect an “ordinary” storm driven by random atmospheric patterns to honor a political boundary.  Tornadoes don’t.  Hurricanes don’t.  Desert dust storms don’t.  Furthermore, storms are not stationary.  They move.  This storm did not.  Clearly this was an extraordinary storm for which no one has presented a cogent scientific explanation.

This storm started me thinking, “What was the root cause?  What happened?” Read more…

Protests?

November 27, 2016 Leave a comment

We have all heard and seen the mayhem going on in our large cities protesting Trump’s victory.  The mainstream media and Obama would have us believe that these are legitimate, spontaneous protests.  Not so.

Here are some links proving that the riots are the product of a well-funded, orchestrated campaign of intimidation and destruction against America.  Rioters are not only offered good pay ($15 per hour+), but some of the ads actually include provisions for benefits such as dental insurance!  Please do not apply…

Conservative? Liberal?

November 26, 2016 Leave a comment

As we mingled and talked with friends and family this Thanksgiving, the conversation frequently turned to the recent election.  “What do you think…” was a common question.  During one of these conversations, I was asked a simple question, “What’s the difference between a liberal and a conservative?”  What an opportunity for a series of jokes!  Here is one:

An elderly man went to a store and bought $15.23 in groceries.  He handed the young cashier a $20 bill, expecting $4.77 in return.  He was surprised when she handed him a single dollar bill.  Bewildered, the gentleman complained, “This is the wrong amount!”  The cashier – a liberal – replied, “No sir, this is the right amount.  You must be using the old math.  We’re using the new math now.”

Jokes may be good for a laugh but will not answer the question. Read more…

The Lion

A hungry young man decided to go for a walk in the woods in search of mushrooms. The farther he went into the woods, the less light filtered through the trees, and the darker it became.

He saw some beautiful mushrooms and decided to taste one. It made him dizzy and giddy, and changed the dark forest into a bright kaleidoscope of colors. It was so wonderful! He loved it. But soon everything faded back to darkness and he continued on his journey. Read more…
