The Coronavirus And What I’m Doing

Panic. Mayhem. Stock market crash. Toilet paper shortages. School shutdowns. Is the Corona virus something to panic about? The Coronavirus, or COVID-19 is not on the top 10 things I’m concerned about. But because of the number of people bringing this topic up I thought I’d make a page I can point people at. Am … Continue reading “The Coronavirus And What I’m Doing”

2019 in Retrospect

We were locked outside. The sliding glass door had locked itself upon being closed. Perhaps it had been slammed just a little too hard. Minutes earlier the kids had shot off poppers. We were celebrating the new year standing out on the back deck; 20 feet off the ground at my in-laws house. It was … Continue reading “2019 in Retrospect”

Jupiter – First Attempt at Stargazing with a Telescope

On clear nights I would often take Eli outside to look at the stars when he was a toddler. I told him the names of a few stars, he asked me to tell him the names of all the stars. I found out quickly young eyes are better for looking at stars, he could see … Continue reading “Jupiter – First Attempt at Stargazing with a Telescope”

Dr. Jason Lisle Conference

When Eli was 4, Kris and I needed to keep him occupied while we packed our house up ahead of a move… so I found a video by Answers in Genesis and put it on. Eli discovered an interest in the solar system. He liked it. A lot. For the next several years he studied … Continue reading “Dr. Jason Lisle Conference”

Programming Management & Leadership Books

There are plenty of books on managing people; but there are few books targeting management of software development, and even fewer aimed at people who got promoted into leadership positions with no management skills.  I’ve read countless books looking for resources in that area…  I can find plenty of books about how to manipulate people or … Continue reading “Programming Management & Leadership Books”

The Diet of Worms And Five Solas

Happy 501st Reformation Day! (and Happy Halloween) In 1521 Luther was summoned to the city of Worms to be tried for heresy.  Expecting an opportunity to debate Luther willingly went.  But instead found no discussion would take place. He was asked to answer two questions: First question: With his writings on a table in front … Continue reading “The Diet of Worms And Five Solas”

Genesis and the State of the Culture

Kris and I finished watching the Genesis and the State of the Culture speech that Ken Ham and Dr. Georgia Purdom gave at the University of Central Oklahoma. To give some context, the LGBT group at UCO tried to stop Ken Ham from giving this speech.  At some point the student body that invited him … Continue reading “Genesis and the State of the Culture”

Eli’s First Gun | Daisy Buck

I bought Eli his first gun, a Daisy Buck Model 105. It is very similar in function to lever action rifles (lever action works the same, cross-bolt safety is the same) so it’s a great starter gun to teach proper firearm handling and safety.    It was $18 at Walmart but has quality where it counts.  … Continue reading “Eli’s First Gun | Daisy Buck”

Snowcicles | Hoarfrost or Rime?

Beauty in God’s creation.  Sunday morning I walked outside to see all my trees covered in small inch long gravity defying icicles.   But they’re not icicles. Click on the images to get a larger size. Touching one they’re more like snow than ice.  I’m not sure if this is hoarfrost or rime.  It melted away … Continue reading “Snowcicles | Hoarfrost or Rime?”
