Back on Line with the Blog, Window 10 sucks

Posted on April 24, 2016 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)

   We installed new computers and as you probably know, all software must be reinstalled.  Windows 10 caused the failure of 2 laptops, twice.  Windows 10 is another failure, just like Windows 8, both being released without all the designed operations NOT operating.  If you are thinking of installing W10 as an Upgrade ............. DON"T.  It will cause a total failure of your computer.  It happened twice here.   It was very expensive.  One of our h...

I am a veteran.  My family has a long history of serving in the Miltary, as far back at the Revolutionary War, 1776 and before.  Veteran's Day if for military vets, not any other public service.  Thank Our Vets ... hand shake, buy a meal, treat them with respect.   A friend of mine posted this and I feel it says a lot.  We have so many freedoms that many take for granted.  Don't do that, FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.

But nothing less than the most extreme necessity is confessed, can justify individuals in a breach of promise, or an invasion of the properties of others.

This quote about Islam from 1703-1791 by John Wesley. “Ever since the religion of Islam appeard in the world, the espousers of it … have been as wolves and tigers to all other nations, rending and tearing all that fell into their merciless paws, and grinding them with their iron teeth; that numberless cities are raised from the foundation, and only their name remaining that countries which were once as the garden of GOD are now a desolate wilderness; and that so many once numero...

Technology and the users

Posted on October 28, 2015 at 4:00 PM Comments comments (0)

“Technology is a blessing for those who understand it and can develop and maintain it. It can be a nightmare for those who can only depend on getting it “off the shelf”. If it malfunctions they are lost. Tools, supplies, and technological equipment should play a part in anyone’s survival plans, but they should not play a part that overreaches the person’s ability to deal with it.”

Shortly before World War 1, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: “You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?” The soldier replied “We will shoot twice and go home”.
