Boom – Fallen Alder

It appears the large boom was caused by an alder tree that fell in our back yard.  All the rain lately has probably turned the hillside soil into so much mush.

Large Boom

About 11:05 we heard a large boom here in Shoreline that rattled the windows and shook the floor but couldn’t find anything out of place in the immediate neighborhood.  The police say they haven’t received any other calls.  I’m at 7th and 198th NE, curious if anyone else near here heard anything similar or knows what it was?

Psalm 33:6-19

New King James Version (NKJV)

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.
He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap;[a]
He lays up the deep in storehouses.

Let all the earth fear the Lord;
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
For He spoke, and it was done;
He commanded, and it stood fast.

10 The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.
11 The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The plans of His heart to all generations.
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.

13 The Lord looks from heaven;
He sees all the sons of men.
14 From the place of His dwelling He looks
On all the inhabitants of the earth;
15 He fashions their hearts individually;
He considers all their works.

16 No king is saved by the multitude of an army;
A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
17 A horse is a vain hope for safety;
Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.

18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope in His mercy,
19 To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.

I have a vinyl copy but I wore it out and quit listening to it twenty years ago, but found this on You Tube and listened through.  This album makes me feel about every positive human emotion there is and very little negative.



Ruby Jean and Billie Lee is my favorite but the whole album is wonderful.

  1. Diamond Girl – 4:12
  2. Ruby Jean and Billie Lee – 4:09

Almost two years after being released, I still have nightmares of prison and also nightmares regarding my daughter.

Last night, I dreamt that she came to talk to me but I have a no contact and so told her I couldn’t but that was enough that I was in prison again.

Then the dream kind of morphed and I was no longer aware how I got there or how long I would be there.  Then I realized I was dreaming and woke-up but I wasn’t really awake, I just dreamt I woke up.

I was hoping these would fade after I was out for a while but it appears not.

I’m afraid, Dave. Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I’m a… fraid.

If I don’t go to sleep, I’m okay.

Human Leg Chew Toy

I’m wondering if a dog chew toy shaped like a human leg and foot would sell?

Product Seals

Am I the only one that would rather risk dying from poisoned aspirin than die from a stroke resulting from the sheer frustration of having to deal with these impossible to open seals they’re putting on just about every product out there today?


Stumbled across Breakaway on Facebook. I really like their sound, don’t understand why I’m not hearing them on the air but felt they deserved exposure. Have a listen.

Cannibal – New Silversun Pickups

Right now I’m going through some financial difficulties. Business January and February has been weaker than I’d hoped and there are some extra expenses. I’ve got an IP block for sale and when it sells these difficulties should be relieved but I don’t know how long that will take. Times like this I feel like I must not be doing what God wants me to do and so I ask for guidance.

Now it happens that since before going to prison, whenever God wants to get my attention, in some way or form he reminds me of Romans 28. And today, I prayed and asked that he just remind me he’s in control and has some plan even if I’m completely oblivious to it, then I went to My Daily Bread, a devotional that was available in prison in paper form and that I’ve continued to follow online, and this is what was there for me today.

Romans 8:28-30

New King James Version (NKJV)

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
