  • Why do boys and girls like different things?

    One of my friends recently asked me, “Why do you think boys like action movies and girls don’t?” I just said because the way boys and girls are brought up is very different. And with that thought, I started to have a train of thoughts. “What would you gift a 3-year old girl?” Answer is very clear – probably a Barbie doll or a doll house or a kitchen set. “What would you gift a 3-year old boy?” Answer is again very clear – probably a fighter plane or remote controlled car or legos. Why this difference in our own attitude? What happens when a small boy starts liking his sister’s kitchen set more than his remote controlled car? He gets a message from..4 continue reading...

  • I Never Told My Father, I Loved Him

    My father parachuted into Germany and was captured that same week. He and his Screaming Eagles company buddies, Heshie and Whitey, were holed up in a farmhouse armed with machine guns when a Tiger Tank rolled up to it and put its muzzle into a window and fired. He often recalled to me that at the prisoner of war camp at night, when he slept, mice would creep into his buttoned shirt vest pocket to steal the few crumbs of bread he had hidden there before he could awaken and slap his pocket. He weighed eighty-eight pounds when he was liberated. Once, on a work detail outside and beyond the barbed wire fence he saw a skeletal group of Jews,...2 continue reading...

  • How to Recreate One’s Art Efforts

    This week’s email question asks, “I spend a lot of effort and time working on a painting and I always worry whether or not it will sell.  What can you tell me to do about that?” Just stop worrying.  This is a real problem for most artists and the solution is really simple to sell a sold work of art over and over again or create works that become affordable to those who do not want to invest in an original painting. When I think of all the time and effort I put into a painting and then the joy of selling it or perhaps not selling it, I then wonder on why or why not it sold. If it sold it is gone and I have to start another... continue reading...

  • Curiosity Kills The Cat

    It is human nature to be curious and to be greedy. Sometimes, we may also accept to be taken advantage of, knowing well in advance that the motive may give us more bad than good, or perhaps, the other way around. We make a bet on our luck, unsuspectingly before we realize the stupidity proved to be ours. Another lesson learned and another buck flew out of our pocket. Some years ago, my MIL was staying with one of her daughters.  At that time, almost every moderate household would hire a maid to do the housework and my MIL would spend her free time either weeding or watering the flowers in the garden as she pleased or she would help around with..2 continue reading...

  • Really, Is The Doctrine Of Christ Worth Following?

    Is it foolishness to still be following the doctrine Of Jesus Christ? Are the words of Christ true? These and many more are the questions raging through the heads of people. But a man called Paul has the answer to these questions. This article aims at using the words and life of Paul to answer whether the doctrines of Christ is worth following. For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with... continue reading...

  • Much ado about Blood Moons

    There has been much hype concerning the fact that four blood moons separated by an eclipse of the sun are a sign of coming disaster for these United States as well as the rest of the world. Those speaking like this point to Yeshua's words concerning end times and the sun going dark and the moon turning to blood. What these well meaning preachers are missing is that Yeshua spoke of the sun going dark and the moon turning to blood as a sign and not as a natural phenomena. This means that this particular occurance of the sun going dark and the moon turning to blood would be supernatural in origin. We can know this because they are  called signs... continue reading...

  • Selling? Respect Potential Customers

    Yesterday, I walked into the membership discount store that I frequent. As always, the salesman for one of the satellite television providers was near the entrance with his display. Usually, I make brief eye contact with the salesman, exchange a greeting and keep moving. None of them have ever pressed me. This guy, however, was short on wisdom and heavy on arrogance. “Do you know what we have...4 continue reading...


    By Ivan Petryshyn The Forewardship Circle was standing up in the east of the Eostre Temple, the wlaed of the Light –Tlaevis. The dews of te Stone-Gates were slowly running down with the first Rays of the Selena-Son, the Sun-Jarilus.  And the Eastern Gate went open. And the Gray-Priest raised his hands to the Star-Zgara, and knelt down and started to pray : “and the One That breaks the Darkness by the Force of the dimmy gray mists stepped onto the Eorthe-Twaerda tenderly and gently. And we ask for the permission to thang Her for it”. And the Gate closed, and the Gray Priest entered the Temple. And the Est-Southern Gate went open.... continue reading...
