To my birth month well-wishers on Facebook

Yes, I am so strange. Like Temple Grandin, I feel like I am a martian born on Earth. But be that as it may, my eyes closed  here are because in my totally dark environment the best I could do to create this video was to turn the LED facing at me and it's really bright.


A more beautiful place in the world I cannot recall seeing, on Blue Ridge Parkway.



Did Jesus know he was on a Fool's errand? You cannot create Temple Grandin.


Jesus was actually destroyed by John, those writers a hundred years after his physical death.

Video-feedback Intervention to promote Positive Parenting and Sensitive Discipline (VIPP-SD) was originally developed by some of the world’s leading attachment researchers from Leiden University in Holland.

In VIPP-SD the practitioner works primarily with caregivers and young children, and the non-intrusive use of video and video-feedback is its defining component. It is based on attachment theory but also uses some behavioural principles to aid sensitive discipline.

VIPP-SD has been shown via randomized control trials to be extremely effective with a variety of groups (eg under 5’s, adoptive parents, childcare) and its successes have been extensively reported in many peer reviewed journals.

Miraculously, this miraculous vehicle has no lethal weaknesses, except maybe one, or two.

  If there is one it is that in cold weather even with this lifepo4 battery does not heat enough during the day to stay above freezing by morning and we're Outdoors all the time. This is the biggest concern. There are heating pads from Walmart, there are oil pan heating pads and maybe the solution is as simple as cutting away the insulation on the sides of the battery, applying the heating pad then re applying the external installation, securing the wiring, and using it then sometimes in the winter time as needed. That it may be this thin enough that it won't interfere with the cranks. 

If there is a second vulnerability it may be that the geometry of the otherwise game-changing rear trike wheel hub motor yields too much leverage on the internal bearing that it fails as it seems to have done. In two days it is hoped that back up bearings are secured. It is not known for certain that they will fit. It is not known for certain that they are the reason that there is now a wobbling play in the rear axle tho very slight and it may be that James will hold off on finalizing the diagnosis by opening the motor until he arrives at a place where it has labeled back up if that's still available. Or maybe he will dig right in. We'll see. If it turns out that the proper size replacement bearings can be secured then if it is necessary to replace the bearings every 3000 miles or so that's fine. If not, James needs to come up with a different Hub Arrangement, maybe the dd45 with proper adjustments, but never failed before.

The greatest expression of political and moral Authority since Martin Luther King Jr? Extraordinary. Well done.

Rev. William J. Barber II America

Sadly he is mistaken on the two most important things as was dr. King. He eloquently illustrates all that matters is I, what I do, what I make of my life, and then he says exactly the opposite. He is correct in the first case. And he suggests that there's a political solution and there's not for two reasons, and they're related. It's too late, and it's too late because we've never done what Jesus said which is to put our whole life into cultivating our own soul, putting it in charge of the head and flesh that otherwise wreak destruction and thereby possibly encourage others to do the same. But a wonderful article none the less.
