1  Welcome / About You! / Re: Hello, I am new here on: January 26, 2014, 08:08:23 PM
The temperatures dropped again up here and a main drain for sink and sepic froze up at our camp. My brothers are talking about letting it go, and not running anymore water, until warmer weather but I am worried about pipe leakage in the cellar. Do heat tapes do a good job or are the space heaters better when something like this happens?
Sometimes I really get upset when I am told only part of whats wrong but not how to go about fixing the problem. I know if it were their house it would have been fixed long ago.   That is the trouble with being a woman. Lots of clean up work but no answers.  lol

Here I am again alone in the hall, but I can see others came in while I was absent. The happy New Year banner was still hanging on the wall left here by nChrist. Oh and I saw the note about his bike accident.

I had two petal bike accidents when I was much younger. Was riding bikes with a friend and she went off one curb, and I off the other and we ran smack dab into each other and ended up with some cuts and badly scraped knees.  The second wreck was on a steep long driveway that had stones and chips of coal on it. I was headed home and as I came down the hill my front wheel hit a big stone which twisted the bike around and down I went. More cuts and bruises, and small lumps of coal embedded in my legs and arms, and knees.
I still have one tiny lump in one knee that did not come out.

Well guess I will close the doors and come back later on. The hall is kind of drafty and the snow is getting deep. But I will come back again soon as I can find a few minutes to slip away.  Smiley

Soldier4Christ,
Did you know that now days you can do and listen to the ham radio on the internet. Lots of people communicate that way and can hook up with many repeaters computers in the their area and around the country and world. Is your ham license still valid?  If so you should look into it there is lots of info on youtube and on the web about how to do it.

My family was into CB radios, long before the idea of using ham radios came to our town. Now lots of people have chosen ham over CB, and the only ones that still use CB are the truckers who use a lot of bad language. That is why lots of people don't talk on CB anymore.

I have become a full time caregiver to my mother and have very little time for anything else. We are redoing her house making it more handicap accessable, as well as, cleaning it up. It is very stressful and time consuming. Most times I have very little time for the internet or my favorite forums.

I hope all here are managing in this very cold weather. It is -0 degrees out tonight and heaters are being strained to their limits trying to warm houses. I hope it is better where all of you live.   Smiley

I have some good news to share. Our town is trying to start up its own radio station. Friends of mine and others have put in for a license and are awaiting its arrival. They plan to run the church services on Sunday, as well as, play good music and talk about local news and happenings.  Praise the Lord!
They said the old radio station which moved out of town had blocked the Sunday sermons on purpose, but now through the hard work of the town's people it will be back in town and turned on for our listening pleasure.

Glad you stopped in to visit with me. It is very lonely here with no one stopping in anymore. I sat and waited and sure enough fell alseep in my chair, until you, nChrist stopped in with a big red mug of coffee. I was glad to hear your getting better, as being sick is no fun at all. I understand how hard it can be and very happy that your out and about again.

A friend of mine was off on a short family getaway and was riding a bike, you know a petal type with brakes on the handle bars. I guess he was cruising along and a deer jumped out right in front of him. He applied the brake, well the front brake first, and flipped the bike and himself right over that deer. He ended up with a badly broken arm that is not healing properly. We are praying he gets well soon.
Now I remember why I like the old fashioned bikes and the brakes controlled by the feet instead of the hands. Saved many a hard landing.  lol

Hope someone else stops by soon or I will eat all the cookies and drink all the coffee myself.

Thanks for your reply. Seems there are lots of things that some people believe in and the old saying goes the more you say it people tend to believe it. This can be said for both just about anything, to fool people or confuse them, or even in preaching the word of God.

Since you were in radio communacations did you ever get into ham radio?? It is a really fun hobby now that the use of the internet is involved you can talk with mostly anyone around the world or in space.

Mom may have read that passage in another book, she does not remember as good as before. But her favorite channel on tv is the church channel. She enjoys listening to the beautiful christian and country christian songs. Plus most have really good speakers that tell things straight from the bible. I only wish they would not tempt older people to buy products from them that are very over priced and made to sound better than they really are.

I have been cleaning house. Finally got up the nerve to clean out the things that don't fit or work, or just don't get used. Baggage carried around from place to place, just taking up space. Books are the hardest thing for me to let go off and crafts come in second. But I am determined to clean house from top to bottom. It just takes a lot of time to sort through.




Have you been there and were you able to throw away the clutter??

TEN SIGNS OF A BIG WORRIER

1. You find you spend much more time in useless, nonconstructive worry than other people you know.
2. People around you comment on how much of a worrier you are.
3. You feel that it is bad luck or tempting fate not to worry.
4. Worry interferes with your work and you miss opportunities, fail to make decisions, or perform at lower than optimal level.
5. Worry interferes with your close relationships and your spouse, and friends sometimes complain that your worrying is a drain on their energy and patience.
6. You know that many of your worries are unrealistic or exaggerated, yet you cannot seem to control them.
7. Sometimes you feel overwhelmed by worry and even experience physical symptoms such as rapid heart rate, rapid breathing, shortness of breath sweating, dizziness, or trembling.
8. You feel a chronic need for reassurance even when everything is fine.
9. You feel an exaggerated fear of certain situations that other people seem to handle with little difficulty.
10.  Your parents or grandparents were known as great worriers, or they suffered from an anxiety disorder.

Found this in the book and found it to be very helpful in understanding how worrying and anxiety, can take over your life if you don't let go and let God, carry your worries for you.

Thank you so much for the link. I saved it for my Sunday, listening pleasure. Our church is small and does not record the sermons, but the local Methodist church was doing it until the radio station stopped doing it by reducing then turning off the volume so no one can hear the preacher talking. Then of course ratings dropped and then they stopped it all together. It was not as if they did not know the problem, lots of older folks called and complained about not being able to hear the preacher, so I think it was done on purpose.

Well I came back early this morning and swept out the hall and dusted all the chairs. Boy, did the dust fly, but with broom in one hand and a rag in the other I got this spot looking pretty good. The windows were harder to do, as you know most old places have big windows that you need a ladder to get too, but I managed to clean them up so all that beautiful light from God could shine in once more.

I went to the store and gazed at rows of cookies, but could not make up my mind which ones to buy and bring. Maybe next time. Sure wish someone would drop by and chat with me and get the coffee flowing  again.

Well I think I am going to sit back and park here a bit and see if someone stops for coffee. I brought my own cup.   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Hello Terri,
Not sure if I remember talking with you or not, but I wanted to say hello and welcome you back. My name is the same and I am not sure exactly when I joined, but have been here a long time. My only big change was moving from Florida to Pa.

I am sorry to hear of your illness and long recovery. But it is a good thing to seek old friends and keep the Lord with you through troubled times. I have several health issues too and deal with lots of ups and downs, as well.

Hope to talk with you some more on the forum.

Many Blessings!

What you said about the leaves not turning in your area, but falling down green, brings a question to mind. Is there a bible verse that talks about the return of our Lord, and a sign being when the oak leaves fall from the trees still green? My mother says she remembers reading such a passage but now of course she has no memory of where it might be found.

That is such a sad happening in South Dakota, not only did a great number of animals die, but a lot of those farmers stand a chance of losing their entire farms and ways of living. Seems a real cruel blow so early in the season.

Yes, I was referring to HAARP. Though it seems easy to believe, I would really need to see it to believe it. But there are those that say it works, by using heat cones that push out the outer layers of the earths protective rings, which when done in several areas around the world,can steer wind currents. Thus steer the storms.
12  Fellowship / You name it!! / Re: Coffee Time! on: October 15, 2013, 09:52:25 PM
It is high time to make a big pot of coffee. Those who used to come here and sit awhile are all invited. I will bring some cookies, and someone else can bring the sandwiches. The hall here is empty and lonely, but all are welcome to come to this party.

Bring your own chair and gather round. Bring family and friends, and someone bring the music. I did not have time to decorate as the doors were closed and nobody has been here since Easter. You will need to bring your own mugs and plates, for the kitchen is empty.

I am sure that many of you have tales to tell about your summer, which should be entertaining at best. You know how children can say the funniest things and this is the party that loves a good laugh.

So come on out I have propped the doors open and the lights are shining brightly here and I have pasted a big WELCOME sign over the door!

My life has changed so much since moving back from Florida. I dearly love the mountains of PA., and plan to stay here for always. Sure the weather has its ups and downs, from hot dry summers to cold wet fall, and then winter ice storms and snowy conditions, with  a few flakes to outright  blizzards. But through it all I have been blessed with good landlords and warm places to live.

My family life is busy with caring for my mother.  With the help of my family it is a lot easier. We have banded together to care for her. In other news, I planted a small garden this year that did well and provided me with an over abundance of tomatoes. I canned some green tomato jam and froze tomatoes as well. This crop as well as, other things gave me salad mixes all summer long, with lettuce and onions, and cherry tomatoes.

I am now helping out on two different forums and finding out how hard it is to keep the people who love to cause trouble out. It takes a lot of patience and understanding, plus that delete button sure comes in handy when a good edit won't do. The moderators on this site do a wonderful job and everyone should be thankful for their willingness to help keep the forum safe for all who enjoy coming here. It is not an easy job.

I am also getting back into photography and making postcards for our town. It is a worthwhile hobby, but will take some time to become a best seller. But it keeps me busy and out of trouble.

Lastly I attend church when ever I can, although caring for mom makes this difficult most of the time. But I do take time to read my Bible. 
14  Welcome / About You! / Re: Hello, I am new here on: October 15, 2013, 09:15:41 PM
Gosh it is so good to hear from you both. I agree that prayer is the main focus of many Christians theses days. Over seas the Christians, are being killed in the name of greed and here we see battles over this evil healthcare law and immigration. I read a small news article that said up north in SD or ND, that a freak snowstorm killed thousands of beef cattle. They said it started with days of rain, followed by a blizzard and that the animals froze to death. It got calves just ready for market, as well as, many cattle that were carrying next years calves. If the story is true then I see the price of beef going through the roof.

Some say that the government has found a way to control the wind currents making it possible for them to start and stop, and turn storms in any direction they want them to go. This freaky storm would almost make a believer out of me. Maybe they want us all to become vegaterians or vegan. lol

It is time to re-band together here to give strength and assurance to all who love the Lord. I hope more folks will have the courage to sign in and share their good times and bad, so that we can encourage one another. I have been away too long but I think it is time to rejoin this fold. Blessing to all of you and also those who need still to hear the word of God. l 

15  Welcome / About You! / Re: Hello, I am new here on: October 15, 2013, 12:53:07 AM
Well here I am again dropping in to say hello. Life for me has become very busy with caring for my mom and doing writing online. I have made bunches of new friends and have learned a lot about my health issues, as well as, the workings of my computer. Seems I am always running out of ink for my printer or just hoping the next time I turn it on it will work. lol

The weather is turning colder here. The fall leaves were so beautiful this year, although, I remember in my youth when maple leaves were much bigger in size, like the size of a dinner plate. Now most are the size of smaller plate. But the colors were so bright and no fungus or black spots this year. Also however strange the maple leaves have turned and are falling off the trees, but the oak leaves are still green.

I kind of like the slowing down that comes with fall. First we rush around doing last minute yard work and getting the garden cleaned up, and then it is time to relax until that snow comes and with it the need to shovel daily. But I guess we need our exercise somehow.

So what is new? I hope all is well with all who come here and I hope your all still looking up!  The way things are so out of control in government and many other areas of life in the USA, and around the world seems to point to the end times. Is this a common thought? 
I just don't understand how so many in high places can sit back and let this all happen. It kind of makes one think there are many more things going on behind those white house doors that we have no clue about.

Thanks be to God, that those of us who believe and have purpose in spreading the Word, can rest assured by faith alone that things will work out for the good in the end.     Any thoughts you want to share I would be interested in hearing.
