2:10 PM | I really should write my dreams down as soon as they happen. That way I’d have been able to write down the branch of the Methodist Church in this morning’s dream that had the waitress at friendly’s deliver a pie to my table on their behalf, “While I could still remember it.” Yup! I’ve been slacking in the usage of my digital recorder for these things and it’s showing. However, the arrival of the pie at the table Ellen, her brother in-law, and I were sitting at in this dream tells me something I’ve been asking the Lord for is heading my way once again. I’m looking forward to discovering which of the things on my wish list it is, “Soon!”
12:56 PM | I nearly was writing at 2:42 AM. However, I did manage to get back to sleep after the first dream. So, it’s all good! Continue reading Thursday, November 03, 2016 001:
11:47 AM | On Saturday, November 5, 2016 I had a dream type that I haven’t had in a really long time. It involved getting together change so that I could buy myself a small Dunkin Donuts coffee. Continue reading Thursday, November 10, 2016 001:
2:07 PM | Starting up with today’s dream was a good thing, for sure. It served to be a basic reminder of the fact that I can, and probably need, to continually remember to ask the lord to keep my path clear; speeding me on my way. What does that mean? Continue reading Tuesday, November 15, 2016 001:
1:40 PM | this morning’s dream was rather interesting; clearly foretelling me of a visit from my neighbor, Sharon. She emailed me this afternoon to let me know that she’d like to come by on Monday with a care package for me. But, the dream seemed to be trying to show me something else, too. Continue reading Friday, November 18, 2016 001:
11:52 PM | I haven’t been writing that much this month. But I have a lot to be grateful for all the same. With my credit card debt completely erased as of November 10, 2016; life is certainly going to be a bit different going forward. I’m now in a position where I can start to focus on me and certainly have enjoyed doing at least a weeks’ worth of research; addressing one matter that I’ve been putting off for years due to financial constrictions. Continue reading Friday, November 18, 2016 002:
1:47 PM | I’ve often wondered if affirmations were something that only influenced my own subconscious mind, or, if their influence extended beyond; influencing the behavior of others in my environment, as well. However, I think this morning’s window dreams just might have answered that question for me. Continue reading Monday, November 21, 2016 001:
4:51 AM | Sometimes when sleep just isn’t happening the only thing one can do is deal with the most prevalent thought, or thoughts, of the moment. Since about midnight it seems to be church. Clearly; either I’m missing something, or there really isn’t a church here in Sussex County that is truly what a church is supposed to be according to the Bible. Both Sparta Evangelical Free (the church I’ve been attending since June) and the church I formally attended, Newton First Baptist, say they are for the Lord; yet somehow seem to fall short of the mark. Continue reading Tuesday, November 22, 2016 001:
1:02 PM | So, clearly I’ve not been writing much this month; working more on a project that has everything to do with affirmations and their influence on more than just the self. Well… That is my suspicion anyway. Maybe you’ve noticed too that affirmations for money, relationships and other things do set up a curious kind of effect in your environment? Take things one step further and we find ourselves talking about Bilocation/Astral Projection don’t we? Continue reading Wednesday, November 30, 2016 001:
The morning’s dream of Friday, October 21, 2016, was yet another perfect example of how dreams can often outline the basic steps we should follow when it comes to dealing with situations. In other words; when we’re looking for solutions to real-time problems, our dreams will hand us the answers we need; not in literal contexts, but in scenarios that will give us outlines based on principle. Just because a dream doesn’t match our situations in imagery or out and out experience; it is by looking at the principles presented in the dream that we can then find our real life solutions. If I’ve lost you here then let me explain. Continue reading cPanel Web Hosting Dream Provides Scripted Plan In Reality.
Based on my little Java 8 Update 111 experience; anyone using Jaws 17 or any of the JAWS for Windows versions might want to consider deactivating the Java bridge before taking new Java updates in future. I’m not sure how it is on 32 bit machines running JFW. But on my 64 bit Windows 10 powered computers the only way to get JAWS to work with Java involved turning the Java Bridge off and then restarting the computer before turning it back on again. Continue reading Java Updates With JAWS Running Windows 10.
November 22, 2016 was one of those days where only about two hours of sleep was possible; if we could even call it sleep. However, during that two hours of largely dozing in and out; my dreams seemed to be desperately trying to tell me that I would be getting some help (or needed help) in dealing with those things that really bug me. Continue reading Dreaming About Bugs Meaning.
On Friday, October 14, 2016 I reactivated comments across the board on this site. I had disabled them for a few months due to Comment Spam and a bit of stalking from one cranky assed bitch of a business owner from Stanhope NJ. However, after waking from a dream in which I was reactivating the comments on this site I figured that was my cue to do it in reality. So, “I did,” and so far so good. Continue reading No Longer Free Is Making Akismet Hardly Worth It To Me.
I had a dream on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 about checking out the keyboard shortcuts in WordPress for managing comments. The first thought that came to mind when I woke from the dream was, “Does this mean I might actually get a real comment on this site from someone within the next few days who’s not using a spam bot?” Continue reading The Best Way To Control Spam Is To Know What It Looks Like.
When it came my time to vote during the 2016 elections; I voted for the person that would be the easiest to impeach if push came to shove. So, “No,” Hillary Clinton didn’t get my vote because she was way to embedded in the political system here in America; having friends in all the right places who make it possible to help her, “Do no wrong.” So, “Yeah,” Trump was it for me. Continue reading How The Media Got It All Wrong About President Trump.
For those who have been searching; I believe the content you are really after, found in the original Personal Journal Two, Saturday, October 15, 2016 entry which was largely regarding Johnny D’Angelo and Catherine Moore’s relationship, has been rewritten and moved to a new URL. Sorry about that. But, all is not lost. To be taken to the new location for this rather popular topic simply Click Here.
12:21 PM | For weeks now I’ve been feeling like I should be putting my Journal online. I can’t really say for certain why; other than the fact that it just felt very strongly like it was something God wanted me to do. Continue reading Monday, October 10, 2016 001:
1:32 PM | You’ve got to really hand it to Google these days when it comes to accessibility. I’m a keyboard user so tend to type rather quickly. So, when I am doing research I might actually trigger that little mechanism that asks me to verify that I’m not a bot by typing the letters I see in the box. The trouble is, “They didn’t make the image screen reader accessible; making it impossible for me to actually verify that I’m not a bot.” Continue reading Monday, October 10, 2016 002:
3:05 PM | Yup! All my bills are officially paid and I’ve got one-hundred and twenty-six dollars to my name for the rest of October. I guess it’s a good thing I don’t own a car, ha? Continue reading Monday, October 10, 2016 003:
6:35 PM | I got a call from Mom before and it sounds like things are going reasonably well for her and my dad in Delaware, where they live. We had a bit of a talk about pain management; me trying to explain the basics of mind over body. There are days when I really do wish I could just put what I do in a bottle and hand it to arthritic folks like my mom. Unfortunately though, as effective as things like Bio Feedback and meditation in general are in managing pain, it is still an acquired skill. Continue reading Monday, October 10, 2016 004:
11:09 PM | It was rather sweet of my friend Marilyn to leave me a message about a possible job lead this evening; Staples now apparently offering tech related services to go along with their selection of computers and other stuff. I seem to recall talking with her about it a few weeks ago, too; explaining why I wouldn’t be bothering to inquire about a job there. But she must have forgotten. Continue reading Monday, October 10, 2016 005:
10:13 PM | When I woke this morning from another night of dreamless sleep I wasn’t surprised. I didn’t write down the dreams I had over the weekend. So, not getting any more of the frequent life like visions that have proven to be so useful… Continue reading Tuesday, October 11, 2016 001:
11:17 PM | I’ve got lots of paper towels now and extra coffee. So, the world will be safer; largely because I’ve got extra coffee. My friend Ellen’s got a full tank of gas in her car, as well since she was the one who drove me out to Walmart. Continue reading Tuesday, October 11, 2016 002:
10:14 PM | Well, I didn’t have any dreams last night, either. However, when I got out of bed at 7:30 this morning I felt much more relaxed than I had in days. Continue reading Wednesday, October 12, 2016 001:
1:02 PM | I’ve definitely been sleeping a little too soundly of late. I woke up at around 11:18 or so this morning. But, it really was a good night for sleeping. I love this time of year! Continue reading Thursday, October 13, 2016 001:
2:49 AM | Yup! I’m still up. But I’ve got lots of reading done and am pleased to say that my summary of Stephen R. Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is finally online in its entirety. I also got up, as I’m sure anyone will be able to see by now, another post in the Dating Brian section of my site regarding a question women seem to be asking revolving around the importance of sex in relationships to men. Continue reading Friday, October 14, 2016 001:
2:49 PM | Yeah! I’m still going strong with only an hour and a half worth of sleep. I know I asked the Lord for a bit of extra energy to get things done. But, “This is getting a little ridiculous!” However, I did ask for the boost, “Right?” Continue reading Friday, October 14, 2016 002:
11:08 PM | Yup! I’m still conscious. In fact; I was invited to dinner at Marilyn’s house and when Ellen texted me, offering to take me out for something light, Marilyn suggested that I call her back and see if she wanted to join us for dinner as well. I was in Marilyn’s driveway when I was texting with Ellen. Continue reading Friday, October 14, 2016 003:
2:07 PM | This morning’s dream about carrying a rather wide piece of furniture down a boat dock was rather interesting. The person helping me carry it kind of reminded me of Allen; Carol’s husband. But the dream was a quick flash and because it happened so fast I’m rather unclear on some of the details. Continue reading Saturday, October 15, 2016 001:
11:15 PM | When I took time to meditate this after noon; I came out of a super relaxed state of mind with the idea firmly implanted in my head that I needed to write a post about the possible influence spirituality might be having on folks who have been diagnosed as having ED, otherwise known as Erectile Dysfunction. Clearly this post could go somewhere in the “Spirituality” category on this site. However, the sense that I got upon finishing up with my meditation was that it should go under the “Body” category instead. Continue reading Saturday, October 15, 2016 002:
12:42 PM | Another restful night’s sleep; and I’ve gotten some good news from Jane with regard to her grandson. Thankfully; the young man is showing signs of improvement with his Double Pneumonia. She tells me that she’s already got what I’ve sent her with regard to Catherine, which is cool, too. I just hope their able to do something positive with all of it that will make the lives of everyone in the family healthier and better going forward. Right now though, “It’s all in God’s hands.”
11:19 PM | Well, I did get quite a bit of cleaning done today, talked with Mom, Checked out Friendly’s three buck special with Ellen, got laundry ready for the wash while watching a few shows and finished off Sharon’s awesome chilly for dinner. However, my thoughts kept drifting back to the dreams I had before waking this morning for a later than planned start to my day. Continue reading Monday, October 17, 2016 001:
11:54 AM | I had a dream this morning about checking out the keyboard shortcuts in WordPress for managing comments. The first thought that came to mind when I woke from the dream was, “Does this mean I might actually get a real comment on this site from someone within the next few days who’s not using a spam bot?” I don’t really know why these clowns even bother. The stuff they try to post is so obviously junk that no one would even give it a second glance if it did make it past my spam filters. Continue reading Tuesday, October 18, 2016 001:
11:03 PM | Well, between last night and this morning, “I’ve had my three.” Last night it started with me boiling water so well that there was no water left and the knob fell off the tea pot lid. Next came the glass that broke when I went to reposition it in my dishrack. Then, finally this morning, there was the Java 8 Update 111 that just installed oh so nicely in all of my machines, “Not!” But I do have good news! Continue reading Wednesday, October 19, 2016 001:
