The Most Grandiose Title For a Blog

Sometimes I try to remember where the time went.
I remember struggling to get out of work Thursday in time to get Scherie and drive back again almost the same distance to the theaters to see

Is Genesis History?

I found this movie to be very informative. I liked it a lot and recommend it.

I cannot remember Friday night.

Saturday I went in to work to clean up a few items on my desk, collating electrical and hydraulic prints and filing PDFs I had made of them at FedEx but instead ended up replacing a motor one of my guys was supposed to do but couldn't because I had to ask him to do something more important.
When I had replaced the motor, the robot that was supposed to tell it to spin up, refused to. The network protocol that the robot was speaking (devicenet, as opposed to skynet) is difficult to troubleshoot, so rather than troubleshooting it, I spent my morning rewiring it and reprogramming it to command over ethernet.
Actually Skynet. Seriously, this robot could now conceivably tell a motor in China to turn on, given the correct security permissions. Maybe.
Really, it's not Skynet, it's Ethernet IP. Same thing :)

I managed to wrap it up in time to get to the radio station in time to make the show.
Yesterday's show was probably one of the best I've been involved with.
A local parent, Ash, found that his son had attended an art class at his high school only to be subjected to a projection on a screen throughout the class accusing Trump of lying. We had quite the discussion of the influence (appropriate and not) of educators on our children in public education.

A friend of mine, Walter, called in.
Few people listening know that Walter and I used to play together at Church (he the Bass and I the Keyboards) and he used to attend my Bible Study.
He's become quite the celebrated phone caller on a number of shows and stations locally and nationally.

Afterwords, we had a small going away party for another broadcaster who was "retiring" from broadcasting. At what I think is the age of 30.
Matt Clark has been broadcasting some great radio for about eight years and the ClarkCast will be missed. Some really clever influential stuff there.
We bid for his time slot. And won. Hey! Someone had to get it.

I took Scherie to dinner afterwards at our favorite local BBQ: Boneheads.

This morning was supposed to be the business meeting at the church, but I got called early (very early) for a problem that someone had inadvertently created at work.
I finally determined that I couldn't fix it over Skynet, so I'd have to go in.
I dropped Scherie at church in the firm belief that someone would have pity on her and take her home. They did.
Actually I met Scherie and Bonnie (and two of her great grandkids) at the local Cracker Barrel.  Good food, good friend, good service and so many after church people. Northern Hillfolk (we have a lot of people of Tennessee extraction) and a lot of well dressed blacks. Anybody who says we live in a racist nation has not eaten here. Politeness abounds.

I was informed at dinner that my Business Report was submitted in my absence. Also, in my absence, I was volunteered for a few projects. I was afraid of that.

So now I have an opportunity to blog.
As always, the question arises, "What shall I write about today?"
I'm still waiting for the answer.

Crucial Navigation

When someone says that each person can find their own path to God, they assume that each path is acceptable to God.
What if His demands are not satisfied by your "path"?
When you discover your error at the end of your path, there is no turning back,  no do-over.
God has one path to Him that satisfies His demand.
Faith in Jesus the Christ.
All other paths are self-delusion.

Thought for the day

Let's review.
We had a president for 8 years whose parents were Communists.
Whose Grandparents were communists.
Whose Mentor Frank Marshall Davis in Hawaii wrote for a communist newspaper and was an avowed communist.
Many believe that Obama might have even been part of a program by the Russian government of raising children as plants to come to high political positions in America. (Well, they have done that successfully through the American educational system.)
So now we have a theme running through the media that formerly ignored all of that about Obama, and now wants to promote the idea thatTrump might be unacceptably influenced by Russian connections.
My head is spinning.

I know it sounds self promotional, but we did another radio show Saturday.

The Drift Radio Show

I've been told it was entertaining.

Who am I to act so "humble" as to deny you the opportunity to decide for yourself?

Scherie made a brief appearance.

We talked 9th Circus among other things.

Shhhh. It's a secret!

Trump is going to post another Travel Ban next week, but doesn't want to announce it yet.
He doesn't want to give America's enemies advance notice.
So they can't rule against him early.

25 Years Ago

I got lucky.
I was blessed.
I had prayed and asked God for a godly wife for myself who would be a good mother for my kids.
And a blonde.
I got all three.
Thank You God.
