In spite of the fact(s) that today and always I guess firearms, hunting and fishing are and always have been my primary hobbies.

I have to admit I am a bit of a geek when it comes to electronics and computers..

Bought my first computer in early 1980’s. A Commodore 64..Thought it was pretty neat!!

Plus when I worked in the printing industry so long ago I became the go to guy when we first brought IBM desktops in and the resident expert with Lotus 123. Remember that one?

I have built a number of computers and for a while had a side business working on computers, repairing, installing software etc..

I also have a couple of Linux boxes with Mint and Ubuntu installed.

I like Linux because it works and updates are free…I am not a Windows fan, although I have one with Windows 7 on it..My Most Dearest has Windows 10 on her computer and ….. it….. SUCKS!!

Always somewhat keeping my eyes open when new products come online and every now and then think about doing another build.

And now I find this interesting..

Media BiASSed: Drooling Idiots…

Meet CBS’s Scott Pelley, the Most Anti-Trump Anchor on TV News


CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley is plainly the most anti-Trump of the Big Three anchormen, having gone out of his way since the Inauguration to slam Trump’s “falsehoods,” even asking if the President “is having difficulty with rationality.” For taking on the President in such a direct way, Pelley has become something of a rock star among his fellow journalists.

CBS Trashes White House’s Tax Plan, Critique Divorced from Reality


The White House on Wednesday released the outline for the President’s proposed tax plan that would drastically cut taxes and simplify the filing process, among other things. CBS’s resident Trump critic and anchor, Scott Pelley kicked off the show smearing it. “Today the Trump administration rushed out a plan for historic tax cuts high on hyperbole, but with only a dollop of detail,” he declared at the top of CBS Evening News. His critique was loaded with snide attacks at the President and at one point divorced itself from reality, something Pelley once chastised Trump for.

Nets Decry ‘Lost Revenue’ in Tax Plan; Fear Financial ‘Windfall’ for Trump


On Wednesday, the network morning shows responded to President Trump’s tax reform plan with the standard liberal rhetoric employed whenever Republicans call for tax cuts: How are you going to pay for this massive loss of government revenue?! The ABC and NBC broadcasts also feared the plan would help Trump financially (as it would for all Americans).

Media Cheer: Trump ‘Reeling’ After ‘Big Setback’ to ‘Hardline’ Immigration Policy


The NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows on Wednesday were grateful that a liberal federal judge sent the White House “reeling” after he handed President Trump “another big setback” to his “hardline immigration policy.” Rather than actually highlight the criminals who have evaded capture due to lax enforcement of immigration laws in left-wing sanctuary cities, the networks instead celebrated the ruling as a loss for the administration.

CNN’s Stelter Denies He’s ‘Freaked Out’ or ‘Crusading’ Against Trump, Rules His Rallies Were ‘Poison’


Appearing on BuzzFeed News editor-in-chief Ben Smith’s podcast released Wednesday, CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter covered a number of topics, including the touting of his gooey Washington Post profile, knocking Trump rallies as “poison,” denying that he’s been “freaked out” over this Trump era, and the admirable joy he has for becoming a father.

Politico Gushes: ‘Moral Authority’ Rather Here to ‘Battle’ ‘Hitler’-esque Trump


After running a great piece yesterday about how polarized journalism has become, Politico took a left turn Wednesday writing a lengthy puff piece on disgraced CBS News anchor Dan Rather’s return to the spotlight or as Politico put it, his “second coming.” While Politico’s senior writer Michael Kruse didn’t shy away from Rather’s own history with “fake news,” the scandal that tore away Rather’s credibility was only the backdrop to the gushing narrative of the “resurrected” journalist whose voice of “moral authority” and “love of country” “obligated” him to call out the current “authoritarian regime.”

Noah’s Building Plan

Noah’s Building Plan

April 27

“Noah did everything just as God commanded him” (Gen 6:22).

When God chooses to do something on the earth He uses a man or woman to accomplish it. It is a partnership that is very one sided. God got the worst part of the deal.

God got to a very bad place with the human race. He decided to start over. He was going to wipe out the entire population and begin afresh. He chose one man to place His entire strategy around. Can you imagine that? God placed His entire plan around one man. Why? Because He could trust him. The Bible says Noah did everything just as God commanded him. He didn’t argue with God. He didn’t take short cuts. He listened and he obeyed.

Who was this man Noah? “Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God” (Gen 6:9-10). When it came time to execute God’s plan, He chose Noah to build a big boat. However, Noah had no idea what a boat was or how to build one. So, God told him how to build it. He gave him the dimensions; the height, width, space requirements – everything he needed to complete the task.

God will instruct us in performing our work too. God is in partnership with us in our working life. He has given us the tools, the creativity, and the drive to accomplish what He placed us on earth to do. That partnership requires us to listen to our senior partner though because He knows the exact way our project is to be done. And when you follow His direction that project will be excellent in every way.

“Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: ‘I am the LORD your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go'” (Isaiah 48:17).

Do you need God to show you how to succeed in your call? Ask for His wisdom and understanding. God says he will give it generously (James 1:5).

Talking to God all night

April 27
Talking to God all night
For reading & meditation: 2 Corinthians 5:14-21
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation ‘” (v.17)

We ended yesterday by saying that because Paul had died to all self-interest, he was not at the mercy of ambiguity and uncertainty. Sure of God, he was sure of the future. You see, if you don’t surrender to God, don’t think you don’t surrender. Everybody surrenders to something. If you don’t surrender to God, then you will surrender to something else – your moods, your circumstances, your fears, your self-centred concerns. And if you do, you will end up becoming downcast and disillusioned. A doctor tells of being called to see a patient, the head of a large company, who was having increasing attacks of asthma. The doctor could find no physical basis for the asthma, and so he asked the man: “Is there anything troubling you?” The patient replied: “No, doctor, I’m a member of a church, in fact an official in the church – nothing is troubling me.” The next day the patient again sent for the doctor and said to him: “Yesterday I told you nothing was troubling me, but I’ve been talking to God all night. I looked at the ceiling and saw the words: ‘Seek first the kingdom of God.’ Doctor, I’ve been seeking my own kingdom. I’ve been a completely self-centred man. But last night something happened to me. I’m seeking first the kingdom of God.” The doctor said: “I went away with tears streaming down my cheeks. I had seen the birth of a soul.” Surrender means not just the birth of a soul, but the birth of everything – new relationships, new perspectives on life, new power to face whatever comes, and a new sense of certainty and belonging – a new everything.
O Father, it is obvious that unless my confidence is placed in the Ultimate, then I will not be able to cope with the immediate. Help me to be a fully surrendered person. For surrendered to You, I need surrender to nothing else. Amen.
For further study:
1. What was Christ’s example?
2. How can we imitate Him?

Rules?? What Are rules? I don't need no stinking rules!!!
