I need to remember this!

Philippians 4:4-9

New International Version (NIV)

Final Exhortations

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Photoshopping fun

I got this photo in an email from a relative. The kicker is my sibling’s grandson, so a something-something nephew.

The original is slightly out of focus and a tad overexposed from the bright sun, but the pose is SO good!

It is SO RARE to get a really good action sports photo, especially when the photographer is just amateur mom with a point-and-shoot camera. But this one is fantastic. So I did some photo-shopping on it.

I also did a gravatar.

This kind of tweaking is very easy for me to do. I’m seriously talking about 10 minutes tops. So say $5 worth. I’m just mentioning it in case you’ve got a photo you really wish was better so you could stick into your Christmas cards.

First v Forty-Fourth

I’m sure that, if you are a p.c. multi-culti type, you will approve of our latest presidential Thanksgiving proclamation. Personally, I’m inclined to see it as a symptom of why Obama is such a weak leader. Click to embiggen.

Nov 29, 2011: NHTSA Opens Investigation into EV Batteries After Replicating Chevy Volt Fire

Reuters – After putting a Chevy Volt through a crash test, the NHTSA had put the plug-in hybrid out in a parking lot, seemingly awaiting the scrapper. Three weeks after the test though, a fire starting at the battery pack engulfed the Volt and damaged several nearby vehicles. This prompted the NHTSA to launch an investigation in electric vehicle battery packs.

Over the course of three days, the NHTSA conducted studies on three other battery packs, simulating an accident and rollover. One of the packs recorded a heat spike a day after the simulated accident, but no fire. It was then rotated 180 degrees as it would be in a rollover, and within hours sparks and smoke were seen emitting from the battery pack.

Another pack, undergoing a similar accident and rollover test, caught fire a week after the initial test. These two incidents are what have prompted the NHTSA to further investigate not just the Chevy Volt, but all electric vehicles with lithium-ion battery packs.

It’s too early to tell what, if any, impact this will have on electric vehicle sales and, and the attitude of people towards them. It is also important to note that the NHTSA did not follow GM’s procedures for discharging a battery that has been damaged (because GM didn’t bother to tell the NHTSA). But as electric vehicles become more prevalent, these are the kinds of issues that will keep cropping up, and automakers like GM need to ensure that they control the dialogue. That starts with getting the word out about the right way to deal with a beat-up battery.

I used to respect this man;Bush 41 made him Chairman of the Joint Chiefs,Bush 43 made him Secretary of State.Then he turned his back on a fellow VietNam vet purely for one reason-Obama was black.That made all the difference.I have no use for someone whose loyalty can be bought that cheaply.
