    A Metaphoric Story of Human Misconception Chapter two- Like Father, Like Son

    The metaphor of the Jewish story explains the individual and collective human metaphor, as that in turn explains the Jewish story- all metaphors are intrinsically alike, and like a series of mirrors getting smaller and smaller, reflect each other in smaller and smaller circles. The god Yahweh, through his favored child Moses, who had faithfully kept the first covenant Yahweh had made with his people, of purity of blood and adherence to the laws, led his wandering, homeless people to the land that he had promised to give to them to live upon throughout time. Biblical text- Num. 34 1-2 Then the Lord Yahweh spoke to his emissary Moses; “Command the... continue reading...

  • Understanding The Power In The Blood Of Jesus Christ For Your Victory

    Do you know that there's power in Jesus blood? Every covenant is sealed with blood, and in the case of The New Testament, it was sealed with the blood of Jesus. The Christian faith is anchored on the shed blood of Jesus, and an understanding of its power and the benefits will help you apply your faith to it . And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. (Revelation 12:11 NKJV) But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not..1 continue reading...

  • Stephen Decatur Jr, American Hero: Part 1 "For Honor and Country"

    In the 21st century Stephen Decatur Jr. is one of the most under-appreciated and under-rated military heroes in United States history. Today, Chester Nimitz, “Bull” Halsey, Daniel Farragut, John Paul Jones and perhaps Oliver Hazard Perry are names of navy men that would more likely come to an American’s mind than that of Stephen Decatur. Yet, two hundred years ago Decatur was known and admired around the globe. He was a national icon, the first post-Revolutionary War hero. He remains the youngest man ever to have achieved the rank of U.S. naval captain and at least 46 communities in the United States are named for him. When his accomplishments are...3 continue reading...

  • Writing Tense

    Writing tense doesn’t refer to how tense a writer may feel when writing, but is instead about the tense the story is written in. There are a few no-no’s about this that writers, especially new writers, should be aware of.   It doesn’t occur often, but occasionally a client sends me a manuscript written in a moment-by-moment manner, as the story is supposed to be happening. Example: Mary walks into the room and looks around. She sees the vase has been moved and puts it back into its proper place. Mary then walks to the sofa and adjusts one of the pillows . Sorry, but this is not a novel—it’s stage directions for a play. And this is never ever...2 continue reading...

  • What Does Religious Liberty Mean to You?

      Opinion:  Patricia L Johnson The first day of the annual Values Voter Summit began on Friday, September 26, 2014 with leading Republicans getting together to speak at a gathering of evangelical conservatives. Their theme for the day was ‘Religious Liberty’ and it will probably be the theme that will be carried forward throughout the 2014 midterms and the 2016 presidential race. So, what is “Religious Liberty”?  When I think of religious liberty the First Amendment to t continue reading...

  • Review-The Divide

    The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap, Matt Taibbi, 2014, ISBN 9780812993424 Among the consequences of the Wealth Gap in America seems to be the establishment of two different sets of laws, one for the rich and one for everyone else. This book gives the details. The sale of Lehman Brothers to Barclays Bank was advertised as a last-minute, desperation fire sale. How did Barclays manage to get an extra five billion dollars as part of the deal? Among the reasons why the Justice Department doesn't prosecute "too big to fail" banks, or their top executives, is because they have lots of money, and lots of lawyers, to delay and... continue reading...

  • CONFESSIONS OF AN ALIEN ABDUCTEE

    human Thomas Jefferson, an otherwise brilliant man, refused to believe in the reality of meteorites reported fallen, as he deeply believed that no rock could 'float in the air only to later fall", so 'inferiority' in 'intellect' is not an issue with those who cannot accept ghosts, demons or aliens' existence from others' reports; they, like Jefferson, are hamstrung and crippled by beliefs, contrary to any truth about the unseen world all around us, using a logic based on insufficient data of the true nature of reality..  As an abductee for my whole life, I have stumbled through unknowing, to suspicion,  and then resistance, and...5 continue reading...

  • The Art of Cooking in a Cast Iron Pan

    Over the past year several of our readers have written to me asking about cooking with cast iron pans so here is some good information about that. There truly is an art in everything and especially in cooking with a cast iron pan.  We seem to have gotten away from them with all the newer pans that have come along over the years.  Even when one finds them in a yard sale, looking very “junky” and often rusty these beauties can easily be salvaged, restored and used for many more years to say nothing of usually being at a bargain price. One of my favorite things is to cook Macaroni and Cheese in either a cast iron Dutch oven or...2 continue reading...
