Journey Night Lighting | Et Cetera

Journey-Caravan Side

journey led light

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – December 29, 2011 –

This is not the best of all possible pictures, but it illustrates what I wanted to convey. The interior LED lights in a Journey are beautiful. The paint on the outside the rear door is bright silver, which doesn’t show up at night. It contrasts with the white LED lights inside the car. The white LED light lights up the whole interior of the car, front and back.

There’s a LED light under the front door, which lights the area outside the driver’s door. There isn’t one under the rear door, but I suppose there is one under the passenger door. The light from the driver’s door does light up the area outside the rear door.

While I was out taking the picture, I looked at some of the other screen information. The temperature of the coolant is displayed. The temperature of the motor oil is displayed. The temperature of the transmission fluid is displayed, and that’s all I looked at.

We are scheduled to have the “remote start” feature installed on January 3rd. We could have had it installed before the 25th, but we decided to wait, and I’m glad we did. Our son is here from Scottsdale, Arizona, and we wanted to have our car available. He’s going back to Arizona on Saturday December 31, 2011.

To Marlee and Ethan on The Day Before Their Wedding

Hearts Aren’t Made To Break, They’re Made For Love

Marlee and Ethan

 

http://marleeandethan.ourwedding.com/

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – December 29, 2011 –

Marlee is my granddaughter.

Love requires:

  1. Physical attraction
  2. Sharing
  3. Tolerance
  4. Trust

Mary Ruth and I have been married 58 years. There was and is physical attraction.

I have always wanted to do well economically and socially. My goals were to share those things with Mary Ruth.

Tolerance was important in our lives. We certainly have had challenges. Tolerance was absolutely necessary to overcome those challenges.

Finally, on the matter of trust, I want to say this: As our lives evolved, we reached a point where it became necessary for Mary Ruth to have general power of attorney. She had the power to buy and sell, anything. She controlled all assets. She was free to leave at any time.

MSNBC | Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Others

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – December 28 –

Chris Matthews has done a complete about face.  He has turned from praise for President Obama to criticizing President Obama. Video I Video II 

President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act 2011-2012, which may lead to marshal law and indefinite detention of citizens without trial. Rachel Maddow Video

One of the callers on this Jonathon Turley video says, “I voted for Obama, but I’m not sure I can back him”. C-Span Video

So, we have Newsvine banning liberals like The Jones Girl.

Is MSNBC liberal? If criticism of President Obama is the litmus test, no.

I’m Applying For A Job | I Want to be Your Home Schooler

threats obama ndaa

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – December 27 –

The greatest threat to the United States, as we have known it, is President Obama. He is not a conservative capitalist. He is capable of declaring marshal law. He has been instrumental in destroying liberty in the United States, and he has signed a law, which denies the right to a trial.

If marshal law is declared, there will be no constitutional rights. There will be no legal requirements for an election in 2012.

The question that remains is: If, and when, he will make a move, and how the citizens will react.

If President Obama declares marshal law prior to the 2012 election, how will you react? Will you join the side of the citizens, or will you support the side of the government?

I’m adding a few additional words, because I’m applying for a job as an examiner. So, not only do I want to be your home schooler, I want to be your examiner. I will explain later, if I succeed.

Newsvine Seed | Upon Release of Martial Law Documents, The Plan For America's Destruction Becomes Apparent

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania   December 26, 2011  

Read Article

The seeder of this article on Newsvine appears to be a liberal. I recognize many of her friends as liberals. Apparently liberals are realizing that their own President, Democrats, US government, et cetera are not their friends, but that their goal is in fact to harm liberals. Otherwise, why would she seed this article?

Jonathon Turley’s video is linked in the article. An Obama supporter is heard in that video saying in effect, I voted for Obama, but I’m not sure I can back him. It’s no longer liberals against everyone, it’s government against citizens. The liberals are caught in a trap. The trap is: Their own liberals have turned, and are turning on the liberals as citizens.

The day will come when the traitors in Washington, led by President Obama, will issue orders to the military and police to fire on Americans and enforce Martial Law. At that point, even the most blind and ignorant people will probably come to the obvious conclusion that it is not Al-Qaeda who desires the destruction of America, but the hijacked and treasonous U.S. government.

Their own liberals are engaging in a plot to use military force to detain citizens indefinitely without trial.

My sense is that the momentum to declare marshal law is accelerating.

Your attention is needed.

Handel’s Messiah

The Savior is Born

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – December 25 –

The boundaries of the universe have not been found. We are in infinite space.

 

Christy Sandhoff originally shared this post:

 

(My comments on the info below. You can argue, debate, philosophize, etc. all you want. But the bottom line is this.... you either believe or you don't.....you either have faith or you don't....if the Atheist is right the Christian has lost nothing living their life in faith, but if the Christian is right the Atheist has lost everything.)
A surprising ending.... this is absolutely worth the read!
"Let me explain the problem science has with religion." The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand.
"You're a Christian, aren't you, son?"
"Yes sir," the student says
"So you believe in God?"
"Absolutely."
"Is God good?"
"Sure! God's good."
"Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?"
"Yes."
"Are you good or evil?"
"The Bible says I'm evil.
The professor grins knowingly. "Aha! The Bible! He considers for a moment. "Here's one for you. Let's say there's a sick person over here, and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you try?"
"Yes sir, I would."
"So you're good...!"
"I wouldn't say that."
"But why not say that? You'd help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn't."
The student does not answer, so the professor continues. "He doesn't, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though he prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Can you answer that one?"
The student remains silent. "No, you can't, can you?" the professor says.
He takes a sip of water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax. "Let's start again, young fella. Is God good?"
"Er..yes," the student says.
"Is Satan good?"
The student doesn't hesitate on this one. "No."
"Then where does Satan come from?"
The student falters. "From God."
"That's right. God made Satan, didn't he? Tell me, son. Is there evil in this world?"
"Yes, sir..."
"Evil's everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything, correct?"
"Yes."
"So who created evil?" The professor continued, "If God created everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to the principle that our works define who we are, then God is evil."
Again, the student has no answer. "Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things, do they exist in this world?"
The student squirms on his feet. "Yes."
"So who created them?"
The student does not answer again, so the professor repeats his question. "Who created them?" There is still no answer.
Suddenly the lecturer breaks away to pace in front of the classroom. The class is mesmerized. "Tell me," he continues onto another student. "Do you believe in Jesus Christ, son?"
The student's voice betrays him and cracks. "Yes, professor, I do."
The old man stops pacing. "Science says you have five senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Have you ever seen Jesus?"
"No sir. I've never seen Him."
"Then tell us if you've ever heard your Jesus?"
"No, sir, I have not..."
"Have you ever felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or smelt your Jesus? Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus Christ, or God for that matter?"
"No, sir, I'm afraid I haven't."
"Yet you still believe in him?"
"Yes."
"According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your God doesn't exist... What do you say to that, son?"
"Nothing," the student replies... "I only have my faith."
"Yes, faith," the professor repeats. "And that is the problem science has with God. There is no evidence, only faith."
The student stands quietly for a moment, before asking a question of his own. "Professor, is there such thing as heat?"
"Yes."
"And is there such a thing as cold?"
"Yes, son, there's cold too."
"No sir, there isn't."
The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested. The room suddenly becomes very quiet. The student begins to explain. "You can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat, mega-heat, unlimited heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don't have anything called 'cold.' We can hit down to 458 degrees below zero, which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that.
"There is no such thing as cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than the lowest -458 degrees. Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-458 F) is the total absence of heat. You see, sir, cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat we can measure in thermal units because heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it."
Silence across the room. A pen drops somewhere in the classroom, sounding like a hammer.
"What about darkness, professor. Is there such a thing as darkness?"
"Yes," the professor replies without hesitation. "What is night if it isn't darkness?"
"You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light, but if you have no light constantly you have nothing and it's called darkness, isn't it? That's the meaning we use to define the word. In reality, darkness isn't. If it were, you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?"
The professor begins to smile at the student in front of him. This will be a good semester. "So what point are you making, young man?"
"Yes, professor. My point is, your philosophical premise is flawed to start with, and so your conclusion must also be flawed."
The professor's face cannot hide his surprise this time. "Flawed? Can you explain how?"
"You are working on the premise of duality," the student explains. "You argue that there is life and then there's death; a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood, either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it.
"Now tell me, professor... Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?"
"If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young man, yes, of course I do."
"Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?"
The professor begins to shake his head, still smiling, as he realizes where the argument is going. A very good semester, indeed.
"Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you now not a scientist, but a preacher?"
The class is in uproar. The student remains silent until the commotion has subsided. "To continue the point you were making earlier to the other student, let me give you an example of what I mean." The student looks around the room. "Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the professor's brain?" The class breaks out into laughter. "Is there anyone here who has ever heard the professor's brain, felt the professor's brain, touched or smelt the professor's brain? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, with all due respect, sir. So if science says you have no brain, how can we trust your lectures, sir?"
Now the room is silent. The professor just stares at the student, his face unreadable. Finally, after what seems an eternity, the old man answers. "I guess you'll have to take them on faith."
"Now, you accept that there is faith, and, in fact, faith exists with life," the student continues. "Now, sir, is there such a thing as evil?" Now uncertain, the professor responds, "Of course, there is. We see it every day. It is in the daily example of man's inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil."
To this the student replied, "Evil does not exist sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light."
"The professor sat down.
The student was Albert Einstein who wrote a book titled God vs. Science in 1921. [1]

[1] I tried to find the book. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t exist.

I sang Handel’s Messiah in a choir at a Concordia High School event in Fort Wayne, Indiana. There were several adolescent boys, whose voices had not changed, in that choir. I was one of them. Concordia was a boarding school, and I lived in a dormitory.

White House Approves Of Bill Allowing The Military To Imprison Americans Without Trial

http://www.businessinsider.com/ndaa-obama-2011-12#ixzz1hMGTmCej

This event took place December 16, 2011. This was not only a sad day, it is a day that will live in infamy. The vote in the Senate to harm liberty was almost unanimous in the Senate, and passed easily in the House. Then a conference committee considered it, and finally the president signed it.

If you notice, Jonathon Turley uses the word “sad” in the posted video.

There is strong opposition to the bill. Rand Paul expressed his opposition to the bill in this video.

I fully agree with Rand Paul.

This law will probably be adjudicated. The courts will decide whether the Senate, House, and the President are correct in their attempts to harm life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

I keep thinking about the midnight ride of Paul Revere. Where have the patriots gone?

    In November 1773 the merchant ship, Dartmouth arrived in Boston harbor carrying the first shipment of tea that would be subject to the taxes of the Tea Act. Revere and Warren, as members of the informal "North End Caucus", organized a watch over the Dartmouth to prevent the unloading of the tea.

President Obama, Lindsey Graham, John McCain, and many, many others are no Paul Revere.

Remote Start

Name Your Link

Journey-Caravan Side

Click to Enlarge

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – December 22 –

We bought a new Dodge Journey a couple weeks ago, and I made arrangements to have a remote start feature installed on it. I wanted to surprise my wife with a Christmas present. The saleslady, Amanda, made arrangements to have the parts ordered, and she advised me yesterday that the parts were here, ready to be installed. I told my wife about the whole thing last night, and told her that we would have to take the car in today to have the remote start feature installed. She was a little shocked, and seemed concerned about how much it was going to cost.

I’m hoping the cost will be in the $500 range, but will just have to wait and see what happens.

My wife did say a few days ago, that she wished we had a remote start for the car.

I hope that she will be pleased with her Christmas present. I normally don’t buy presents for her, because she would rather buy her own stuff, and over the years, she has been right. I bought several coats, some jewelry, and other things, which she really didn’t like too much.

Hopefully this time will be the charm.

 

Merry Christmas everyone!
