First impressions with the @TellSpec scanner

It has arrived! I unpacked my TellSpec scanner this evening, and my general notes and first experience follows. First, the scanner is smaller than I expected. It looks fairly large in photos on the TellSpec website, but I am pleasantly surprised at how slim it is. The beta unit is 9cm (L) x 6cm (W) x 4.5cm (H) – roughly 3.5 […]

Genius or Troll: Educated Ignorance

My last two posts have drawn the ire of a supposed Mensan. After my first post, he labeled me a “conspiracy nut” and after the second post he called me arrogant over my evaluation of the situation in Ukraine. He is “offended” because he is (supposedly) a Mensan and my post made reference to people who were educated but ignorant. I wasn’t […]

A Right Not To Be Offended?

I heard Dave Ross talking about gun violence victims that say they felt disrespected at a Washington State legislative hearing on I-594. The offense is about comments regarding if I-594 would have prevented several shootings, and some further comments about gender not being a major issue in gun control. I am curious why people who live in a society with a First […]

New site, new format, new beginnings

I have recently moved off of the Blogger site, mainly because I decided that I have this domain sitting around unused, and I might as well self host my blog. It just gives me more flexibility.

Truth is, I am speaking from being tired and having […]

Merry Christmas, Buon Natale & С Рождеством: A multicultural Christmas wish for you and yours

I live in a multi-cultural family. We celebrate Christmas today, and on January 7. This gives me plenty of time to reflect on the differences between Western and Orthodox celebrations of day of the birth of Jesus Christ. I remember Christmas of my youth being filled with presents (US views), Christmas Eve mass and lots of spaghetti cooked by my […]

Accepting of Tolerance in the holidays

I often get called out by Christians as “promoting tolerance.” In reality, yes, I am a tolerant person who believes Christians need to be tolerant of the beliefs of others. We are going to start with a semantic lesson on what tolerance is. Wikipedia probably has the most commonly used definition by Christians: Tolerance is a fair, objective, and permissive […]

Think first and show respect to all

Ok. I spent a good part of last night listening to God speak to me about my offending a friend by re-posting this Matt Walsh blog. I apologize profusely to my friend. I was disrespectful by not thinking of what consequences my actions would have. My friend is a member of the LGBTQ community, and it was not my intention […]

Thanksgiving Wishes – avoiding the stress

I was asked how I avoid the stress of the holidays the other day. Simple. Keep focused on the true meanings of the holidays. We historically set aside this day to give thanks to God for what He has given us in life. Far too often we allow the pressures of excess and commercialization to distract us from the true […]
