Something that I have been doing for years, but not well until recently. What other skill is MORE important in your family? (None...)
A few months back I wrote in depth about how to pray with your spouse. In those posts I covered the mechanics of prayer and we used the Lord’s prayer as our blueprint. I’d encourage you to re-visit those posts briefly, especially if you’re feeling stopped up in how to start a prayer habit in your marriage. For this post, however, I’d like to remind myself (and of course, readers!) of ... Read More

"How paranoid does a person have to be to want to carry a gun around everywhere?" ... the question is phrased specifically to make gun owners sound mentally imbalanced. It is phrased to shame gun owners into warping their thinking to more closely match that of the person attacking our right as individuals to defend ourselves... our right to survive.  Let me turn that around:  Just how paranoid do you have to be to want non-criminals to be unarmed for YOUR safety? Because it's the non-criminal that is bound by more restrictive gun laws, and popular peer pressure to disarm -- the thug is only happy to have your assistance.
"As I’m about to walk out of the house, something just told me, 'You might want to carry the gun tonight,'" the witness said. Never in the three years she’s been licensed had she ever carried it with her, until Saturday night.

When you proactively lie to people, insisting that divorce, that failure, is the norm… well ultimately people will accept it as such. But it's not.

I always thought this notion was bunk; but now I'm hoping there's some truth to it.

I spent an hour or so with the NP-11 at my local Guitar Center; and was really impressed by the sounds, the fact that it can run on batteries (I don't know if I've ever cared; but I think having the batteries loaded as a backup might prevent the mad dash to reset after a temporary power outage on stage), and the slim dashboard (am so very tired of surveying an array of controls worthy of a 747 airliner whenever I sit somewhere to play).  And the price is great.  Almost pulled the trigger.  What has me sitting on the fence (and near to teetering off) is that the piano sound does not sustain for very long -- just hold down a note and listen to how quickly it diminishes.  Sad, because everything else about this instrument matches up with what I'm looking for.  (The only reason I'm still in the room is that it's so inexpensive maybe I'll still buy it and live with the short sustain -- and jack it into a higher-quality General MIDI sound source when I need the longer play...)

Story
Tagline
I fix technology, and sometimes the people who use it.
Introduction
A multi-platform desktop technician with a heavy bent toward MacOS. Builds WordPress sites just because he doesn't have enough stress in his life. Keyboardist and live-audio technician. Rides a 1984 700cc Yamaha Virago. Father to two humans, four cats; husband to one trophy wife. Strong proponent of open source; vehement opponent of deceptively-named 'net neutrality'. Conservative, 2nd Amendment, limited government, states' rights evangelist now labeled a 'Right-Wing Extremist' by at least one federal agency. The wrong person to argue with if you think Alinksy was a pretty neat guy. If your god needs your help to kill me, Mine's Bigger Than Yours.
