My little Ivy had to be put down today. She was a rescued boarder collie mutt and was one of the fastest, most agile dogs I’ve known. She had one heck of a personality. It was a good (almost) 19 years together old girl!

"In the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, recipes for making soy sauce at home appeared in English and American cookbooks. Since soybeans were not widely available, these recipes used local ingredients such as mushrooms, walnuts, and fish...

Tomato was another popular ingredient for making American "soy" sauce... The names for these varying sauces were "ketchups," or "catch-ups," or "catsups," derived from the Indonesian word for soy sauce: ketjap."

-- "Eight Flavors"

ketchup is soy sauce????????????????

"make my joy full by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind; doing nothing through rivalry or through conceit, but in humility, each counting others better than himself; each of you not just looking to his own things, but each of you also to the things of others."
-Philippians 2:2-4

"When Martin Luther contemplated how to get the Bible directly to end-users, he first considered teaching Latin to Germans. Then he considered translating the Bible to German. Both were difficult prospects; German had regional dialects. Luther chose to "fix up" German by restructuring it to be able to handle philosophical and religious discourse.

"Martin Luther was a great UI designer. He understood that you have to start where end-users are before helping them grow."

Someone at a Texas firm snuck some scripture into the structural drawings! Staring at it all day and thought it was the normal legalese haha!

Remember those pictures: "How many books can fit on a CD?"
Software development turns that wonder into a nightmare for me when I consider how large projects, and their libraries, are these days.

Me, after trying to understand software projects. I don't have a great knowledge of programming, but I like to tinker. Are you guys having an abstraction contest or something? The worst part is that I feel like everyone else sees this as a non-issue. I don't have any solutions, and I definitely can't visualize how I would ever be able to contribute to a project without making it a full-time job. Hats off to all you machines out there who really get this stuff.

Struggling to find proper mental health services for my adult autistic sister. Literally, the ER doesn't even know how to properly refer her to what she needs. Any suggestions for places in central NJ would be much appreciated. She is verbal but very closed off from people and it seems like most therapists don't know how to communicate with her.

Here is a speech by Charles Hoskinson(founder) that can give a bit of an intro. He has a lot of good videos.

A lot of thought and hard work have been poured into the Cardano project, and I think a historic moment is coming up tomorrow with the advent of smart contracts on the network. Whatever the price does, that’s irrelevant. This technology can be a force for good in the world and shouldn’t be viewed as some get-rich-quick scheme. It is complex stuff, but a lot of things that we use every day are.

The fact that our creator gave us the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is a profound truth. Interestingly, the truth is that we cannot fully understand and exercise these rights without Him. Life is so hollow without true meaning, and liberty is a lie when we are confined to the prison of our own corrupt nature. The idea of finding happiness is just a joke without the former. God gives us these gifts, and the ability to enjoy them, through Jesus. He is the Good Shepherd.

Please take this seriously

Now is NOT the time to be stupid

Think carefully, strategically.

It has come to my attention that someone didn't care for this post and that's OK. I don't think that the mandate and the Auschwitz showers are all that dissimilar. The showers weren't originally meant for extermination and they were actually beneficial. The bathing process was streamlined and the poor folks probably entered willingly, because who doesn't like being clean? Their government, who I'm sure they funded with taxes, treated them like cattle instead of free people, until one day...
