Update on Heidi. She was pretty grumpy after the surgery, but the doc said he had to wash the fluid out of her ears and that it was the consistency of glue. He thought it was probably impacting her hearing by around 30dB! She just woke up from a nap and we can tell that she is hearing things clearly for the first time! God is good! It is so great seeing her watch her go-to videos with a new excitement. Thank you for your continual prayers and praise God for answering them! Video to come soon.

Folks, I can't explain it any other way, and I have always been a bit of a Thomas when it comes to divine healing, but since you have been praying for Heidi she has said her first word and several others. She is focusing on us more and mimicking us! It's not that we haven't been trying. She's been seeing a play therapist and a speech therapist with no results. My wife is in happy tears! God does exist and He hears. More importantly He CARES enough to act on our behalf. Please don't stop praying!

My youngest daughter was officially diagnosed with autism yesterday at 22 months old. I had my suspicions, but I'm still trying to process the ramifications.

All of these big tech companies are always looking for the next way to make a buck and improve their brand name. Might I suggest a new strategy on how to achieve that? How about you give honesty, integrity, and impartiality a try? Aim to help your customers, treat your employees like humans, and keep your opinions to yourself. Leave the policing to the government.

Ok, had to make my own. Probably already exists...Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids. In fact it's cold as hell.

Ok, just saw a guy draw a cut of meat diagram on a live pig with a marker. New Scandinavian Cooking show.

I've been a lot of places this last year and done a ton of work. Travelled somewhere in the ballpark of 23,000 miles since June.

Things are declining at a rapid rate. Seeing is believing. The cities are fucked up (mega cliche incoming) dystopian nightmares and the smaller towns are becoming walled off insular communities where they suspect all outsiders and challenge you on the street as to why you are in town if they don't recognize you.

The cities seem to be trying to push the normies out and suck the people who have serious mental health and drug issues in. Don't know why.

In some of the medium sized towns it looks like they are building tons of apartment complexes. Maybe the idea is to move the city people out there and change voting demographics. Spread the 'wealth."

The cities are absolutely inundated with the "housing challenged." Every small stream or river on the edge of every city has strange garbage dump communities on their banks. Burned out cars, piles of the nastiest of garbage, huts made of stolen tyres and stolen plywood and cheap blue tarpaulins.

The mentally ill scream and curse you in the streets even as you drive by. They wrap themselves in smelly stained blankets and instead of asking for spare change they ask for $20. If you give them anything other than $20 they curse you and threaten you.

Drug use is obvious in the city, drug manufacturing is obvious in the small towns. People in the city are high, worn out in worn out shoes. Every small town has a couple of people with no jobs but they drive jacked up diesel pick ups or small stanced foreign hot rods with chrome edged leaned out mudflaps.

If the Spirit of America or the American Dream ever really existed it feels like it is gone. The soul of the world has been ripped out. Everyone is gutted and angry and resentful of you working or resentful that you don't refuse to work to fight an unseen force in a war that exists in their mind. Houses are covered in political propaganda and they are freshly cleaned and painted, lawns manicured by a mixed fuel of confusion and rage.

I don't think we are going to come out of this one. It us a straight nose dive, screaming and hurtling toward the earth, weighed down by black depression and purple greed. There is no center.

Shout-out(again) to @Gargron, the ActivityPub devs, and @eurasierboy for making my journey in the Fediverse possible! I know these tools don't just make themselves.
