An excellent example of the difference between someone who knows what they are doing when it comes to pruning and someone who either doesn't know or doesn't care.

I used to try to DM D&D campaigns, but had a lot of trouble with the vast complexity of it.  I still role play character in 'traditional' games of D&D, but more and more, I find myself drawn to other ways of playing in the D&D universes. 

I love to play the D&D Adventure System board games and have Wrath of Ashardalon, Castle Ravenloft and Legend of Drizzt.  I also have a couple of sets of Dungeon Command: Heart of Cormyr and Sting of Lolth.  Sometimes, I run and play games of the D&D Miniatures Battles Games using a variant of the DDM Guild rules that my wife and I came up with.  Those are all much easier to understand, yet still fun and challenging ways to play D&D.  DDM Guild is still around although they are now more popular in Europe than the U.S. The link to their new website is below.  I can also send anyone a free .pdf of the rules variant, called Epic Encounters, that we developed if they are interested.

I also enjoy the D&D video games like Baldur's Gate and D&D Online, but they aren't quite as fun as playing at a table with other people.

What's your favorite way to play D&D besides the table-top RPG campaigns?

John, I'd love a copy of the rules variant that you guys use. Thanks in advance. How popular is DDM gaming in your opinion? Back in the 1E & 2E days the miniatures system rules were so separate that we didn't pay them much attention, so I've never really known how popular they were then or now. I've picked up one of the Dungeon Command boxes with the minis and more missing just to check it out, but I think making the maps for various scenarios would be very fun and a great creative outlet.

So, how do you destroy the bad ones without hurting the good ones?

Not a verse you see quoted very often.  If we all heeded it, the world would be a better place.

Before there was Amibo, Infinity and Skylanders; before there was Attack Wing and Pathfinder Battles, there was Dungeons and Dragons Miniatures Battles.  It's still alive and well with DDM Guild!  Get rules books and stat cards for free at Bluehost.com

POOP: Plants Out Of Place.  What do we do with poop? You know, like chicken, horse, cow etc.? Mellow it and make compost out of it.  That's what we need to do with Plants Out Of Place, make them into mulch and compost, not bag them up and throw them in the trash.

It's normal to have self-doubt, but if we have confidence, and not doubt, in God. God will give us the strength to overcome our self-doubt and do His will in the world.
 
Have you ever struggled with self-doubt? Are you struggling with self-doubt? What is self-doubt? Self Doubt: lack of confidence in the reliability of one's own motives, personality, thought, etc.

Introduction
         
         
         
I took Ornamental Horticulture classes at CSN in Las Vegas. Before that, I was a Rangeland Management Specialist with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service for five years.  I consulted with landowners, designed conservation plans, specified work to be done and supervised the work in all sorts of projects from erosion control to tree plantings to wildlife habitat enhancement to wetland restoration and more on cropland, grassland, woodland, and even rural landscaping around buildings.   Planning on having a unique interior/exterior design and landscaping business someday. I also have a lot of experience with writing, editing, blogging, consulting and repairing computers.  I've also worked in retail recovering store rooms and sales floors as well as in recommending the products and services to customers that actually met their wants and needs rather than whatever the stores were currently pushing.  Some of my managers didn't like it, but some of them came around when they saw how much the customers loved me and were starting to ask for me by name when they came back to the store.

Update!  I am graduating from CSN this year (2015) with a Certificate of Achievement in Ornamental Horticulture with a focus on Landscape Management.  The landscaping business I thought of is developing into a holistic, Earth friendly, whole property improvement and maintenance business.  God's always led me to help other people, and this is the best way I can do it with the education and experiences He's led me through.

Review: Cree LED light bulb

Gizmag takes a hands-on look at Cree's new LED light bulb.

Nine years ago, my wife had back trouble and started looking for a chiropractor. We had just moved to Vegas and weren't sure where to go. She drove by Dr. Cohen's office (back when they were up on Eastern North of Flamingo) and decided to give him a try. We've been getting adjustments from him ever since. I've had scoliosis since I was in High School and he's really improved it. My lower back pain is so much less now. We've also been involved in a couple of auto accidents since we've moved here and each time, he's helped us recover so much better from those wrecks than we would have without him. The supplements he recommends for virus infections, inflammation etc. really work too. He even takes Teacher's Health Trust for the chiropractic adjustments which is a real plus. Not every doctor in town does.
