The Beacon is Lit.

Posted on December 8, 2010 at 1:32am 0 Comments

It's Pearl Harbor Day.

On the evening of December 7, 1941, the aircraft navigation beacon on top of Mt. Diablo, east of San Francisco, CA was not lit for the first time since 1928.

The rotating beacon has a visual range of some 200 miles, well within the flight range of 1941 carrier based bombers, and it was feared that Japanese would use the beacon to bomb the San Francisco area.

The beacon was not relit until December 7, 1964.

It will be lit…

Culmination Day.

Almost unbelievable! Our daughter just "culminated" from elementary school today. Good grief, it seems like only a couple of weeks ago she was a "Campbell's Soup Kid" look-alike of a toddler. Now, she's on the verge of becoming a young lady. Absolutely amazing how quickly time flew by.

One minor note. I laughed at the contrast between her Culmination Ceremony, with speeches, awards, certificates and cake and my successful departure from elementary school, which was on the…

My apologies for not responding on my post, I'm unable to reply to any post via my phone. You are correct however, I misspoke when I said a vast majority, I should have said "a vast majority of people in my local area or lacal hangouts"

If you dare to cross the Bridge/tunnel, try Cable Car Clothiers 2 blocks from my office. I know they have straight razor implements. Even if they don't have what you're looking for, I imagine they'd be able to tell you where to look.

Rituals of a supportive nature.

When one hears of the occult, mythologies, and "pagan" religion, coming from the Christianized western world, it's not a good thing that comes to mind. It is, however, that most occult persons align themselves with "White magic", and even Satanism has a Ritual of Compassion, attached below... But I've done many rituals of compassion, and in the end even if you're not a MAGIC MISSILE person, it's still very comforting to one that someone took time out of their lives, did a ritual - a set…See More

Prayers and Ideas for struggling men.

I know this isn't your typical theological question, but I feel it can be helpful. I personally need some prayer. I am struggling with guidance. I seem go be having some relationship trouble. I firmly believe God put this woman in my life to be wife one day (when funds and scheduling allow), but I keep picking fights about stupid things. I would like some prayer for guidance and how I should act. Thanks guys. I hope this thread ends up being a way for all of us guys to ask for some prayers.
