I hope.....     until then though here are some prayer pals!!!

JB's Corner Episode 3: Jesus and Becoming Christian

JB and I recorded a video about a month ago when JB was recalling how he was converted to the Christian Faith (I think it was Baptist) and a JB's Corner was born!

"THE BIBLE’S FIRST CONVERT (Luke 23:39-43):
The penitent thief hanging on the cross next to Jesus was likely more beast than man. At a time when only the priests were educated, he lived a life of total illiteracy. Imagine how little you would know about everything if you could not read. You wouldn’t know about history, politics, science, other religions, NOTHING. You would have little to no capacity for critical thinking as these faculties take exposure time and effort to develop. Having to steal to survive in a desert outpost on the very margins of the Roman Empire, you can bet he lived a very barbaric life. He likely had no formulation of right and wrong, and likely relied more upon his survival instincts than reason. He met Jesus for the 1st time as he was being executed under extreme mental and physical torture. Why is pain and torture a staple of the world’s intelligence agencies throughout history? Because pain will get it inflictor to say and do things they would never say or do otherwise. Anything to assuage the pain is an option…including “salvation.” It is in this state of utter ignorance and utmost agony where Christianity records its first convert. He acknowledged that Jesus was God, and at that very moment, all time in his life preceding it, he was condemned not only to a brutal death by crucifixion by the decree of man, but also to a perpetual torment in everlasting hell by the decree of the almighty God –a God that loved him so much as to allow him to be born into a world where he would be the lowest of the low. He was the condemned outcast of a suppressed desert cult, illiterate, perpetually hungry, and now slowly dying by way of one of the most excruciating forms of torturous death imaginable.
My conversion is not quite that interesting nor is it that dramatic but I wish to tell it nonetheless." After the jump...

Baby's First Day @ ze Park!



Today, March 14 2012, little baby Augustus met up with his BFF at some park in Mishawaka (Battel i think?) and did baby stuff (sat in stroller , baby swing, & checked out chics because it was 80 degrees and like Augustus always says, higher the temp, the less the cloths chics wear)  

My journey (Al) for a good HD camera continues and tomorrow i will email my beloved XR7 back to Bens Electonics (who are/is awesome btw) and he might be able to fix the problem (fireport on cam is dead so i can not transfer to edit without using another camera, a camera that can also handle HD).   Problem is I promised the the mayor of New Carlisle that I would grog the big Maple Syrup festival this weekend....   eh... ill figure it out......   More baby pics after the jump...

Closet Apple


I am really bad at most things and this includes sleep.  If a genie granted me the ability to not be so awful at something, I just might pick sleeping.  Maybe if I could sleep like a normal person my other miseries might become less... well miserable.  

For the past few weeks I have been experimenting with different cameras and so far I have run into a lot of crap and that really bums me out.  It is Spring Break even!  Probably a lot of important happenings going on.

So there I was March 10th, pacing around thinking about what to o about my computer / camera situation.  While I thought about my dilemma I began to fiercely clean my studio/lab/study

While filling my closet with clean cloths (a rare occurrence) I decided I would consolidate my closet since it was already looking pretty bad in there.  As I was reaching around the top shelf I felt a round fairly solid object...... and low and behold....





I am pretty sure the apple was there before I moved in.

JB's Corner Episode 1: The Gas Problem

First LJ Post


After pleading with Al for some years or so, he finally agreed to let me audition for the next Grog slot, under the conditions that I must first survive a series of rigorous physical and psychological trials involving a certain dirty hippie named Charlie, and also start a foundation to get money for some girl with cancer or something who didn't have health insurance and looked like walking death (I mean I know you're sick and all, but you don't have to make everyone else uncomfortable  by looking so haggard all the time).  Anyway, I completed my tasks quite enthusiastically and earned the title of Groggy Contributor.  So here I am, living my dream.  I want to be really deep and write about important stuff and change the world by writing about it from my basement, the way those Occupy people are changing the government by sleeping in tents.  I want to like all of the trendy music way before it's cool and I want to wear Gap jeans so that everybody knows how hip and trendy I am but I want to get them at a thrift store so I'm not actually trendy. I don't support corporate America or child labor, but I still want to look like I do.  So my email is lj@thegrog.org and I would be thrilled to hear from anyone who would like to be my friend or enemy. Have a groggy day.
