This is one of those real annoying errors. It tells us a lot but also hides things as well. This is because (if you look at the compiler output) it comes up after more than one step has been implemented by the compiler. The short answer that I've found is... Continue reading

Often, people get upset when their words are used to support a conclusion that differs from their own. However, this does not mean that the person was quoted improperly nor does it mean that they have somehow been wronged. (First,... Continue reading

It has come to my attention that there are people working to design a computer therapist for long-duration space missions. It's pretty advanced, because they are designing it to recognize facial expressions, voice intonations, and I'm sure there are other... Continue reading

NOTE: This report looks at various third party data and uses it to make a conclusion regarding the possibility that the Biblical story of Noah's Flood is a true story and not a myth. Inclusion in this report does not... Continue reading

Recently, I came face to face with my own mortality. Not in the "I almost died" manner I have before, but in the "I may be disabled for life" manner of thinking. For some time I had lost my ability... Continue reading

I was reading the other day an editorial about someone who felt that nationalized health care would increase lines and wait times. I have one thing to say to that: how is that any different from today? I have been... Continue reading

As far as I can tell, the only thing special about specialists is that they have esSPECIALly long waits. My tests showed no brain damage. My doctor said they examined my head and there was nothing there. I told him... Continue reading

Yesterday I had my tests. We found some clogging of my arteries leading into my brain. What does that mean? I don't really know. However, I do know that I am sensitive to blockages such as these and even if... Continue reading

I had a very good day today, and now the sledgehammers are back! I didn't tell my wife how bad it hurts because we just bought her a new car and I don't want to ruin the day for her.... Continue reading

So far this week I've done ok. Over the weekend I kept getting confused while playing cards and had to go very slow whenever my turn came. Everyone noticed, but we all bore it with good humor. It makes me... Continue reading

Well, Brooke seems to be mad at me. I'm assuming typical teenage stuff. I'll respect her privacy and not give details. I still get tired easily. My sugars were in the 200-25- range for a good part of this week... Continue reading

Feeling pretty good today. I was playing chess with Conner and I lost a word once. He made fun of it a little (not being mean-spirited, though). He also thinks about three or four moves ahead. He is getting good... Continue reading

Just a quick goodnight. Feeling ok, just spoke with my Dad. Hit the wall three times. Other than that was ok as long as I spoke slow so it was a good talk. Just got tired of talking quickly. Continue reading

When I start thinking about it, I feel completely normal today. Well rested, not wanting to eat everything in sight, etc... When I try to talk, within a few moments I find it difficult. I lose words, but can get... Continue reading

I slept better last night than in almost a year. Of course, it is probably due to this medication I'm trying. It is making me dizzy this morning, although I didn't feel like this yesterday. My brother says that my... Continue reading

I’m having a difficult time this evening. I tried to speak with my mom and quickly grew tired. It was like a Great Wall of Blank was rushing to stop me. It was a lot for me to bear. I... Continue reading

Ephesians 5:21-6:23 This scripture discusses the various roles that people in the congregation have. As a husband and Christian, I have additional responsibilities than if I was a single Christian. I must instruct my family in the ways of Jehovah... Continue reading

As a husband, I want my wife to be happy. I tell her how beautiful she is inside and out, share scriptural thoughts with her, and treat her like my best friend. Recently, during my personal Bible study, I was... Continue reading

So I found out two nights ago that Conner has taught himself chess. I knew he'd been playing chess on the computer, but I didn't think he was learning. He proudly showed me how the rook, bishop, knight, queen, and... Continue reading

My son, Conner, and I played our first game of chess last night. Of course, when I got started I figured that it would be associated with a lot of random moves and interesting variations on the rules. I was... Continue reading

Years ago, while growing up, I had a friend named Don. He was a quiet, shy chap, but always had people's best interests at heart. He always did his best to be spiritually minded, and I remember that given the... Continue reading
