Banana Split.

Tom's Journal.

I can't explain it folks, but it seems that I have finally made a small leap in improvement with my knees today even as it is raining.  But don't worry, the devil will throw something else in my way, soon enough...ha!  Take one day at a time and don't worry so much about the future.  But I keep falling asleep in my EZ chair watching the news and that does worry me some what, because I normally get a good night's sleep.  

I wonder if some of my readers think that I am a "rebel without a cause."  I have always been passionate about SOMETHING or another, with many skills, talents and hobbies, like carpentry and wood carving, gardening, motorcycles, welding, etc.  And now I 'think' I see that my youngest daughter was only trying to help me when she constantly picked on my large body and weight problem, although being a power lifter most of my adult life helped me do the heavy work in welding and at Chrysler Motors for 30.5 years.  I am actually losing too much muscle mass right now, and expect to start lifting weights again soon at some health club-- if I can afford it.  

And how about the weather?  When I was young we had disasters around the world, but  they seemed seldom and far apart-- where as now, we can just about set our clocks by the next one!  Is not even ONE State prospering with good weather, crops, less crime, peace, prosperity, and calm???  Too bad we can't have just one State in America populated with REAL, biblical Christians!  No DUI's, drunk/ drugged driving, murder, child molesting, corruption or serious greed.  That would be so cool, kind of like it was when I was a young kid in Milwaukee when we left the keys in the car and doors unlocked and most folks went to church, and few unwed mothers in high school, etc.   Dream on, dream on, sailor...

Now days, I only hope that I don't forget something important, and I used to rely on Sharon to help keep tract of things to do, appointments, etc.  As I look back and cry, Sharon was a very special, lovable person.  The reason I don't write about the death of my son, Andy, is because I have orders from the DA, etc., that I might somehow jeopardize the case against the 2 perps in jail awaiting trial for murder.  I am not too worried because I know the Lord will judge them rightly in due time.  Personally, I would fear God's terrible wrath more than what any human judge could throw at our short earthly lifespan.  

I don't know if we are going to see any 'peace' or lull in the constant action, fighting, strife, especially in the Middle East before the 'Storm' is unleashed, and if you all didn't get it by now --- I am talking about the next major war between Israel and her murderous, hateful Muslim neighbors who want to eradicate ALL JEWS FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH, and then steal her land, oil, gas and other goodies.  I will never reach many people on my small time blog... but I hope to at least get my licks in.  

The MOST important thing that ALL Christians should do is to share the message of the Gospel to as many people as possible, all the time, every day, until we die!!  While, at the same time,  it is our own responsibility to STUDY/ read the Bible as much as possible in a scheduled, organized manner to not only learn it so well that we can teach it-- but to know and grow close to God, and accept Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior.  All the rest of our lives are trim/ extras.  Hey!  Just like a banana split, the main thrust is the ice cream, then the other stuff all added in, including the cherry on top.  Now I've made myself very hungry...  and I  just now drove to the Dairy Queen drive-in in our small town and got a medium vanilla ice cream cone, and a banana split !!!  Have a good day.

 VERY IMPORTANT !!  Please share with your friends and family!  Thanks.

 Let's go for Made in America!!
This is Good Info to know  Subject: HOW TO READ BAR CODES

With all the food and pet products now coming from China , it is best to make sure you read label at the grocery store and especially Walmart when buying food products.
Many products no longer show where they were made, only give where the distributor is  located.
It is important to read the bar code to track it's origin.
How to read Bar Codes .... interesting!
This may be useful to know when grocery shopping, if it's a concern to you.

The whole world is concerned about China-made "black hearted goods".
Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or  China ?

If the first 3 digits of the barcode are 690 691 or  692, the product is MADE IN  CHINA.
471 is Made in Taiwan .
This is our right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the
public, therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves.

Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products "MADE IN CHINA ", so they don't show from which country it is made. 

However, you may now refer to the barcode - remember if the first 3 digits are:

690-692 ... then it is MADE IN  CHINA
00 - 09 
...  USA   &  CANADA
30 - 37 
40 - 44  GERMANY
471 ...  Taiwan
50 ...  UK

 US& CANADIAN MADE by watching for "0" at the beginning of the number.
We need every boost we can get!  Pass this on to everybody on your E-Mail Contact List!! 
If the government won't help us, we MUST help ourselves.
