Pray! Even when the need is so overwhelming that you don't know where to begin. No... especially when the need is so great that you don't know where to begin. I'm overwhelmed by what is happening to people in Japan right now. I feel helpless in the face of their helplessness and extremity of... read more

Can't we all just get along? 

Posted by Pastor Ron Wednesday, March 16, 2011 7:00:00 AM
Can't we all just get along? Salps get along together, literally. Each salp is an individual animal but they can link together in long trains. Salps are not jellyfish. Though they have a gelatinous body they also have nerves and are closely related to vertebrates (animals with backbones.) As one of the... read more

A knot or not? 

Posted by Pastor Ron Tuesday, March 15, 2011 7:00:00 AM
A knot or not? The 'prusik' is a friction knot. When wrapped around another rope it can serve as an anchor point. The prusik can be used to pull on the rope in either direction. Very handy for those who want to pull on a rope from somewhere other than the end. But what makes the prusik really... read more

Riding the Diamond Back 

Posted by Pastor Ron Monday, March 14, 2011 7:00:00 AM
Riding the Diamond Back The Tritonia Nudibranch is also known as the Diamond Back. This particular individual could also be called Taxi Back. At least it is providing a ride for this 1/2 inch 'Whatchamacallit'. A lot of under water animals give rides to other critters although most are probably not doing... read more

They're so cute when they're sleeping. 

Posted by Pastor Ron Sunday, March 13, 2011 7:00:00 AM
They're so cute when they're sleeping. This little harbor seal is hauled out on the beach to catch some sun and a snooze. Mom isn't far away and it is best to leave these little guys alone if you see one. In fact it is a violation of federal law to mess with them. Of course that doesn't mean they can't mess with... read more

Don't poke the bear 

Posted by Pastor Ron Saturday, March 12, 2011 8:00:00 AM
Don't poke the bear And don't stick your finger in a Red Rock Crab's pincher! Why do some folks insist on doing things that they know will result in less than pleasant outcomes? Of course you would never stick your finger into the pincher of a crab. But maybe this is just a metaphor. Hmmmm?... read more

Time to dust it off 

Posted by Pastor Ron Friday, March 11, 2011 8:00:00 AM
Time to dust it off Is your life filled with uncertainty, disquiet and perhaps even fear? When you look at world events does it fill you with hope and peace or just the opposite? We are living in a world that is devolving into more and more unrest and turmoil. The things people use to trust are failing... read more

Adult Pizzas

Adult Pizzas This is not your momma's Thai Pizza (Hint: clicking on blue text will open a new page of interest.) These pizzas use a tomato based sauce found at the end of this post. I like to use soft fresh mozzarella but lately have gotten lazy and started using the shredded stuff from Costco. Less ... read more

My Kitchen 

Posted by Pastor Ron Wednesday, March 09, 2011 8:00:00 AM
My Kitchen I love to cook and I especially love to cook with a blazing hot wok. I use an Eastman Big Kahuna propane burner. Because my wok is blazing hot it needs to live outside. But that is OK. BBQs live outside too. There is also a small refrigerator with wood top and a prep table on... read more
