19th November 19

This small blog has just had its 100th comment, rescued from the spam, in which a woman suggested that perhaps this place could do with snappy headlines. Good for marketing. Good SEO. But it misses the point of the dated posts. They are the readings for the day. For the new people, they come from […]

Prayer and help list

Firstly, and update on the wombat… who still needs help. The Kiwi social service is difficult — Kiwis don’t have a social welfare system in OZ (note to any Kiwis in OZ: always have enough cash to get back to Godzone. You can get help from family and the state here. But not there). Keep […]

Monday technical

Getting rid of Google as much as possible is a good thing. The following is a critique of a hardware hacker who produced a phone analogue running FreeBSD (all good) but then used google services. I would add this: every time people try to get me to join a facebook group I cringe. Facebook is […]

We are not to conform to this world, or the agenda of this world. When you have a social welfare system and social housing that is priced and market rates — meaning that the average disabled person has to get food packages a few times a year — you have a problem. There are solutions. […]

Sunday Sonnet

The waters of Lethe remove all memory, all guilt, all shame, and all knowledge. In Greek mythology, it allowed a soul to enter into Hades with their guilt expunged. Or return, again. In Chinese mythology, the Goddess of Mercy gives a tea of forgetfulness before the soul is reincarnated: there is a thought, however, that […]

I know too many pagans. They are very spiritual. They must have the correct attitudes, activities, and rituals. They must be woke. Though it damns them. Adam has describes such in a thousand carefully chosen words, which means he has seen such in the leafy suburbs of the antipodean conurbations. Some of her friends are […]

The week in reaction

This is the week where I put up a midweek post because of the euthanasia bill — seeing our parliamentarians congratulating themselves for joining the green death cult caused a certain amount of wrath. Then nausea. It is also the week where the Democrats went full moron. Stacey and Wombat are good folks, and Wombat […]

The writing on the weekly wall.

Ah, Saturday. You have a chance to sleep in: the work of the week is done: the week in reaction is put to bed before Adam has his hot links up. You awake, a little too early, because the Dog needs to be let out. It is a glorious morning, when the doomsters from climate […]

Many people seek the kingdom of God, but it is here in part. The Church should be his kingdom. but it is human, carnal, broken. But the faithful in the church truly are of the kingdom of God. It is not seen in external pomp and ritual. It is seen in the reformation of a […]

Friday Fitness: Alphabet has gone Feral.

About two weeks ago I predicted that Google would datamine health data from fitness trackers. for the purposes of tracking steps, most watches have internal systems that do this. Alternatively, just note the time you leave and get back: most aerobic fitness should be by time not distance. Yeah, right. I predict that the data […]
