7 Months into 2015

July 16, 2015

I guess 7 months in is a good time to write something on my blog!

It’s been a busy summer, work, vacations, learning to fly ­čśë ┬áSo much going on that it’s easy to forget about my little corner, speck maybe on the Internet.

So I sit here thinking, what should I write?  Well I have no idea but it feels good to get some text in a database somewhere.

Being as it is late, and I doubt many will see this anyway, have a good night world wide web.

Nearly a year again!

November 15, 2013

Man I’m bad at this, I always thought I’d be better at doing some blogging but busy seems to get the best of me. ┬áMaybe 2014 will be a different story!

For now I thought I would just give a pre-sleep shout out to the Interwebs and hopefully be a bit more focused on some writing in the future. ┬áCrazy that I’ll be driving down the road and think ‘that would be good to put on my blog’ but as the day goes, the memory fades, I find something else to do when stationary and then here we are…

New Subject

June 25, 2009

I just realized it has been several months since I’ve updated my blog and there are people actually looking at it. I tend to slack off a bit on these things as everyone does when they get busy.

I desire to write something significant but at the moment I don’t have anything on my mind. I am at work now anyway but have a moment while this server loads 2008 Small Business Server so I thought I’d at least let the world know I was alive.

Other news this weekend is suppose to be nice, well Sunday anyway, it’s suppose to cool down a bit.

Bring back America…

February 16, 2009

So major things are happening in our world and a couple of those items caught me by surprise today. I know there has been a lot of talk about firearms here lately and what the new Administration is likely to do with our rights. These two items, although not at the federal level, are pretty big statements in the recent ‘right to bear arms’ fight. I thought it was important to share such significant statements as these events unfold.

Please view the links I am going to attach as none of this is my material, I’m just delivering the message that needs to get out.

Here is an example of America going entirely the wrong direction:
Gun Control in Illinois, Going the wrong direction

I think this would be a mistake to just look at as gun control, there is a certain stench of assisting large insurance companies in this as well. We already are practically required to have insurance on everything in existence, now guns too? What about the people that cannot afford these policies, that use guns to hunt and for protection? Is it not a right for persons with low income to be able to protect themselves? I mean how many bad directions can this go? This is complete nonsense.

Now this is huge, there is some very strong language coming out of New Hampshire about possibly succeeding from the Union over gun control!!!! What is happening to our country? Also listen to the small snippet of our country being owned by foreign banks, that’s already starting to unfold. This country needs to turn around, and do it quick.

Please comment and share this, this is way to important to sit on.

Thanks for reading.

‘Proof’ David slew Goliath found as Israeli archaeologists unearth ‘oldest ever Hebrew text’

November 1, 2008

Just wanted to share this article, pretty fascinating.

‘Proof’ David slew Goliath found as Israeli archaeologists unearth ‘oldest ever Hebrew text’

By Matthew Kalman
Last updated at 7:40 AM on 31st October 2008

Astounding new evidence has been unearthed in Israel that could confirm the biblical story of King David.

Until now, almost nothing has been found  that would prove the biblical account of a shepherd boy from the 10th century BC who slew the giant Goliath and went on to become the King of Israel who founded Jerusalem.

But today Hebrew University archaeology professor Yosef Garfinkel announced the discovery of a tiny, but potentially invaluable, piece of pottery at the site of the ruins of an ancient fortified city south-west of Jerusalem dated to the time of King David.

Garfinkel said that it carried the earliest-known Hebrew inscription, some 850 years  earlier than the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Scholars are still trying to decipher the full text of the inscription, but Garfinkel said they are excited at the prospect of a link to David because they have already translated the words for “king,” “judge,” and┬á “slave” , which he said suggested it was some sort of official note from the time of his reign.

Until now, scholars have been unable to say whether King David was indeed the  heroic, psalm-composing monarch depicted in the Bible or the local and unimportant leader of a small tribe.

Only one biblical-era inscription with the words “House of David” has ever been┬á discovered, leading some scholars to question whether King David existed at all.

The pottery fragment was inscribed with five rows of text in black ink divided by black lines written in an early Hebrew-Canaanite script.

Archaeologists also found lamps, pottery jars and other items. Carbon-14 tests  carried out at Oxford University dated them to the 10th century BC, the era according to the Old Testament of King David and his son Solomon, who built the Temple in Jerusalem.

The ruins of the Elah Valley fortress was discovered  in 2003 near the modern Israeli city of Beit Shemesh in the Judean Hills, south-west of  Jerusalem. The huge complex is spread over nearly six acres and surrounded by a 700-metre long city wall built with stones weighing up to eight tons each.

Detailed excavations began only earlier this year.

The fortress would have controlled the ancient trading route from Jerusalem to the coast and overlooks the plain where David engaged in his legendary mortal combat with Goliath, giant champion of the rival Philistines.

Goliath’s home town of Gath was unearthed just a few miles away to the south.

“The chronology and geography of Elah Fortress create a unique meeting point between the history, historiography and origins of the early Davidic Kingdom,” said Garfinkel.

“This is the oldest Judean city┬á uncovered to date, and its very construction has unprecedented implications on our understanding of this era.”

Garfinkel said the sophistication and size of the city suggested it was part of  a strong, centrally-planned kingdom.

It has been a busy week for archaeologists searching for King David and his family. In Jerusalem, a researcher said she had found an ancient water drain mentioned in the Bible as the route used by David’s forces to capture the city┬á from the Jebusites.

In Jordan, scholars said they had uncovered an ancient┬á copper excavation site that tests showed could be the legendary King Solomon’s Mines.
