I was going to post a short video of one of the deer that inhabit our backyard, and neighborhood, but I forgot my cord that will connect the tablet with the computer at the library.

Free photo & I think video storage at Livejournal, and I need to empty my tablet of photos/videos, but need that cord!

I have been playing puzzle pirates and trying to get motivated to get more yard work done than just weeding. I had been cutting down weed-trees, but slowed down on that because of the heat and humidity, very unusual temperatures and a lot of rain this summer.

I am watching tiny house videos today.

Eh, not much going on...

Snagged from spikesgirl58:


I barely drink coffee anymore, just decaf. Even then not too often. But for some reason this a.m. I made some caramel flavored decaf and put it in an insulated coffee thermos. It's really an Aladdin brand insulated coffee keeper, but since I was small, the family called it a Thermos after the original insulated coffee bottle.

Lol, it's been a couple hours & I will probably have to warm it up later if I want it. There is a little festival in the "downtown" area today, people selling all kinds of interesting stuff, from raw honey to recycled/reused items like bottle openers made from golf clubs. Soap, baby toys, beard and mustache grooming products. And the sky is beautiful, rain always brings good clouds in this area, fascinating to watch.

This is a small version of the MUCH larger statue being carved from a mountain in South Dakota. Crazy Horse is the man on the horse, a hero of the Lakota Native American tribe. Our church went to the Lakota tribe's reservation in late July/early August this year, we have been doing it for several years.

More information on the statue here.

I missed seeing even the unfinished version due to being sick, wish I could have seen it and hope I get another chance.

It's VERY hot here, in the 90s, so I came to the library to look at livejournal. I got back from the church mission trip a few weeks ago. My phone got wet there so I am without a phone again. That was quick.

I got sick there and was really tired when I came back, still sick for a week then was just TIRED. It is hard to do yard work when it is this hot. But the yard really needs it, so many bushes coming up that just need to be gotten dug up. The worst by far is the poison ivy.

We did have some deer behind the barn for the last few years, but they seem to be gone for a few months. I hope they come back.

{turns out it's only 85 degrees, but 66% humidiity so it feels much hotter!).

Crazy, I am playing a game online, slither.io. Mostly a waste of time, though a lot of fun. I really feel blank about things.

This is not a big deal, but this from Sunday evening to this afternoon (Thursday), I was house and dog sitting for someone. I thought I put my flashlight in my bag when I went, thought I took it out and used it, then couldn't find it the whole time I was there. I was mystified and thought I was going to have to get a new one, then when I got home it was there.

I just wonder why I thought I brought it with me when obviously I just forgot and left it home. I couldn't remember why I had taken it out of my bag when I got there, so it was even worse. I'm glad I didn't lose it, and I did not need it after all when I was there. But it's just weird!

First post from my first smartphone which I bought this week and then got it activated tonight.

It's kind of difficult to use the keyboard, I'm just not used to it yet.

But, wow. I did not get an iPhone as I wanted to, thanks to maadmike's advice. IPhones are expensive and some cheaper phones work about the same. This looks pretty good, but I still have to read the user manual.

Anyway, if anyone is reading, have a good evening, or whatever time of day it is where you are!

Lord I dedicate this journal to you now, and I hope you work through me in it.

Open strife is better than hidden love.

It's snowing, I'm at the library. It will probably melt in no time, but it's coming down pretty heavy. I'm watching random videos about building houses, this is an "earthbag" house--I think it's when you fill a long plastic bag tube with dirt and then plaster over it. Not sure. But it looks like fun. I'm watching the inside construction and outside finishing, like the skylight and patio railing on the roof.

I guess this teenager gets her own room a few feet from the parents house. It looks like it's in the desert somewhere.

Not finished with it yet, but interesting.
...it's made of just soapsuds and concrete.

This is one comment from the YouTube site:

the comment is behind the cut...Collapse )

I myself don't think every home should be made with it, but it sounds like it will be used a lot on the future, sounds like it does not cost much.

Here is the video, it's short:

On Saturday our neighbor was out on his porch with his acoustic guitar and was singing beautifully. This guy and his wife remind me of the neighbors somewhat. This couple on YouTube are a couple who built a tiny house for their (4?) boys, and they are very thrifty and independent. Their living room is their recording studio, but here they are singing in a concrete silo. It's just beautiful.

The hymn is old one, though a version of it is popular on radio in the last months. This is the original version as far as I know.

28 September 2017 @ 05:07 pm
Whew, someone sent me a used iPad. I was pretty stunned. I listen to a Bible study on Thursday afternoons, and got to emailing with the group. There is a chat room at the Youtube channel just for that Bible study (The Superior Word), & we get to talking a lot.

I thought it was going to be a cheaper thing, someone had one they were not using, maybe bought a new one, & donated it to the church. I mentioned to one of the organizersthat I know God was going to connect me up somehow so that I don't have to go to the library all of the time to get online. She mentioned this to the pastor who does the study, she must have heard about the tablet.

So they said they were sending me one, and I really didn't expect it to be so nice. :D

I'm not used to it, and don't have internet at home and it's a 20 to 25 minute walk to the nearest internet cafe (Starbucks). But so far it's fun, hope it is useful.

I wish I could have wifi at home but it sounds expensive.

This whole video is about a guy who made wood and metal pieces that can be attached together to make houses, furniture, vehicles. Everything is designed to be modular, only two tools used to put anything together. He built a solar powered train car that cruises the rails on solar panels from his house.

There is an old music and dance show called Soul Train, so he borrowed the name and made the "Sol" train.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance (patience), kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."

Galatians 5:22-23

We fish with the Gospel, God cleans them up.

A very animated discussion by a guy from Florida, my dad's sister and dad's parents lived there.

This is my conversation with Madame Poovie at Youtube a the link in red just underneath this paragraph (below in large red text, with the names Bolded, you have to scroll down to read it). The rest is the original comment that I commented on--to  alex obukh. So read alex obukh's comment first, then afufle and madame poovie. She makes the claim that "Holy Scripture says we may call a catholic priest father. I pointed out that when Holy Scripture was written, Catholic Priests did not even exist, the Catholic church did not exist. I told her if she did not suppor that claim, that Scripture says it's okay to call Catholic Priests "Father", then I wouldn't continue the discussion. Well she commented again and

Plain and simple, you don't need to go to church to get saved. Church doesn't save anyone. Its your personal relationship with God that matters. Church is a place to praise the lord publicly. Sadly most of your bigger churches are run like a business, where money comes first and God comes second.

Right, iron sharpens iron, and we are told to not neglect the meeting together of ourselves. We all need to be taught and reminded. Our relationship with God is a foundation, but Jesus said to love one another. How do we love one another & not be a part of one body.

+ afufle: We are to meet together and encourage one another to stand fast in the faith, but we can't glorify anyone other than God during these times.

afufle2 hours ago
Yes, don't glorify money and find a church that glorifies God!

What do you mean by "find a church?" There is only ONE CHURCH...ONE TRUTH established by Jesus Christ...the One, Holy, Catholic (universal) and Apostolic Church. Matthew 16-18.

afufle55 minutes ago
If you don't mind disobeying Jesus and calling men who you don't even know "Father". Plus plenty of other apostasy and lies, and disobedience to Jesus and His commandments.
Madame Poovie
Madame Poovie38 minutes ago (edited)
Calling a priest "father" can be seen in holy Scripture! What apostasy and lies and disobedience are you talking about?? The Holy Catholic Church has GOVERNED CHRISTIANITY for over 2000 years! You Protestants broke away from the One, true Church established by Jesus Christ to create over 40,000 false denominations so I have no idea what you are talking about??

Madame Poovie
Madame Poovie36 minutes ago
The holy Catholic Church was preaching the Gospel 300 years BEFORE the holy Bible even existed. The Catholic Church still teaches today what the Early Church Fathers taught! Do you know who the early Church Fathers are?? They were taught by the Apostles.
afufle30 minutes ago
Paul called himself father of Timothy, who was an orphan, and he more or less had a reason for it, he was a father to Timothy. That does not justify disobeying Jesus' commandment to call no man father. As I said, the church encourages people to speak to someone they don't know and cannot necessarily trust as "Father", always capitalized by Catholics, not father, or dad. No priest was ever Father to me, only the Father of Jesus is Father to me. This is just about putting a lie over on people, getting them to accept that the RCC has the authority of the true Holy Father.
Scripture does not support your claim.

If you don't support your claim, this is the end of my discussion with you on the matter of RCC reliablilty as the one true church.

Jesus said there would be many, many, many, liars.

Madame Poovie21 minutes agoHighlighted reply
The ONLY "lie" is the false protestant church (you) who has NO authority!

afufle10 minutes ago
I am not a Protestant. But you did not support your claim that, "Calling a priest 'father' can be seen in holy Scripture!". But the RCC church and priests did not exist when Holy Scripture was written!!!!! So you will keep calling me names, I guess, nothing I can do about it.

I was looking to see if tartar could be removed at home.

Do you have a horrible build-up of tartar on your teeth?

You will know if you do, because it is a horrible yellow/brown mineral deposit found on your teeth, and can usually be found on the back of your teeth.

It is a common problem caused by inefficient brushing and a bad diet, which if left untreated can cause periodontitis.

Periodontitis is inflammation and infection of the ligament and alveolar bone that supports the teeth, which can, in fact, be preventing by avoiding the build-up of tartar on your teeth.

Many people go to the dentist to have tartar removed, but you can, in fact, treat it yourself. Be aware, however, that these treatments will only achieve a fraction of the results a dentist can, there is no more effective way of removing tartar than visiting your dentist.

There are plenty of options for treating tartar at home, all you need is:

  • Hydrogen peroxide

  • Water

  • Baking soda

  • Salt

  • Antiseptic mouthwash

  • Dental pick

  • Toothbrush

Here are some simple methods to remove tartar:

  1. Mix a cup of hydrogen peroxide with ½ a cup of warm water, rinse your mouth for one minute, spit and then rinse again with a ½ cup of cool water.

  2. Mix a tablespoon of baking soda with a ½ teaspoon of salt in a cup, rinse your toothbrush with warm water, and dip it in the mix. Then brush your teeth and spit. The treatment should take about five minutes.

  3. Rinse your mouth with a natural antiseptic mouth wash every second day.

  4. Use a dental pick to remove the tartar, but be careful not to scrape your gums.

To keep your teeth clean and healthy and prevent the build-up of tartar, try these insider tips:

1. Eat Cheese

Eating Swiss or Cheddar cheese before a meal helps to neutralize the acids that lead to tartar.

2. Strawberries and Tomatoes

Strawberries and tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, they help to keep your teeth white and soften tartar. Rub them on your teeth and leave them for five minutes. This technique also works with other food that is high in vitamin C.

3. Dental Floss

Flossing your teeth twice a day after brushing helps to prevent the build-up of tartar, practice your technique and it should only take 30 seconds to do.

4. Eat Spicy Food

Eating chili triggers your saliva glands, which helps to clean your mouth naturally.
