Bear Hug

I woke at 8 and spent an hour reading through the Bible. I went back to sleep then I was in my parents room and my Dad brought in a TV with loose black bolts and asked me to take care of it since I knew more about electronics. I looked down at it and …

Glorified

Thank you, Jesus, for 36 great years with my Dad. He left for Heaven on Saturday, May 26, 2018, at 2:32 p.m. after 83.5 years peacefully in sleep. I’m confident of one fact, I will join you later at the throne of God singing the Hallelujah chorus together. Your jokes, laughs, and smiles were contagious. …

Life Stack abstraction

Looked over the Life Stack link on Khürt Williams’ post and my first thought was, it’s amassing the materialistic man’s possessions all on one page and I wasn’t fond of putting time into this project, and second, I looked at all the hidden pages I’ve worked on in the past that I haven’t published, which …

Exploring React Native

Yesterday, I stumbled on a video series about using React Native (“learn once, write anywhere”) to build cross-platform code for iOS and Android devices and a second fun video presentation today. I can continue to use the HTML-like syntax (JSX) and CSS while encouraging myself to learn JavaScript. Today, I watched that fun video along …

I recently closed my Twitter account of 4000+ tweets and it seemed at the time that I wanted to focus my efforts on Instagram and Facebook, especially the photography page. Last year, I closed my Google Plus account and …

Surviving on an island after shipwreck, saving a cannibal’s life from others, and making whatever he needed from what was available. Then MacGyver was a television series that caught my attention. Always able to get out of any …

macOS Absence

It’s been a month since I realized my second Apple computer was not going to survive. A word of advice; after reading many forums, Apple-owned community feedback sites, and my own experiences; don’t purchase an Apple computer that was made between 2009 and 2014, because they’ll all die within two years or less of a …

Goodbye, LinkedIn!

The first and only account I ever had with LinkedIn since their first days on the web is finally purged. I exported all the content that I wanted and deleted everything in the account before closing it out. Call me crazy, but it was starting to be real pest. I would get “Spam” from recruiters …

Dreams Cycled

It’s on my mind again, “What if I could develop Android apps?” A dream of a man who is lost in the question of what should he do with his life. What if I could? What if it is really simple and I am over complicating it all? Why do I need to go to …
