We've Got A New Minivan, A Chev Uplander
Mood:  energetic
The old Lumina was leaking oil and the joints sounded like they were going to break. We've had this minivan for five and a half years and it was over ten years old.

No doubt, it's time to invest in reliable transportation for Irene who may be working God knows where.

The Uplander cost $23,000 Canadian. Supposedly, we got the employees' discount. Everything was included in this price: MP3 player, cruise control, AC, power windows, DVD player, keyless entry, etc.

If I'm lucky with the overtime, I'll have it paid off in two years. Good roads and good weather to you. It's still bloody hot in Brampton.

I got my computer back
I had three viruses and the motherboard was shot.

Adrian installed a new hardware device called "Valt.X Storage Firewall". This device automatically and instantly recovers from any virus or hacker attack. Apparently, it's much better than anti-virus or anti-spyware software because it cannot be attacked(yet).

If you want to inquiry about this new safety device, phone him at 647-885-8608 or e-mail:

This is my first blog on my wife's laptop
I'm having all kinds of problems with my desktop. I have to bring Adrian in to handle it. Basically, the system restore doesn't work. After all the virus protection, utilities, anti-spyware, Microsoft upgrades, etc., etc., the machine didn't like most of my programs, so it hide them from me.

It's good to have backup.

The Q Continuum And The Brotherhood Of Christ
There are some similiarities, but there are some big differences. While "Q" and Jesus share similar powers, one was guided by a purpose and the other wasn't.

Having the power of God doesn't necessarily make one God.

Jesus succeeded in every challenge given to him by the heavenly Father. As for others including the Apostles, "As many who received him, give he the power to become a Son of God."

The divine training relating to "Sonship" didn't end with the Apostles' death or the death of many Christians in the centuries afterwords.

"The Christ Continuum" enables a believer to become the powerful Son of God that he/she should be.

In "The Q Continuum" powerful beings simply look for games or situations that amuse themselves. That isn't the case with The Brotherhood of Christ. They all work to help lesser beings win. That includes those on Planet Earth, right now.

The Basis Of New Age Christianity
There is a passage from the Book of Joel in the Bible which translates as this:

"It will happen afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; and your sons and your daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams. Your young men will see visions."

The growth of "The Personal Vision Movement" began near or before the 1950s. It grew as beatnik poetry, existential writings, science fiction visions and new age religious thoughts which emphasised the journey of the truth-seeking pilgrim.

The authoritarian "canned or dogmatic versions" of Christianity started to decline. What seemed to be relevant in the 4th century AD seemed to irrelevant in the 20th century.

In the 50s and 60s, with nuclear annihilation hanging over mankind, many sought to find their own answers to the ultimate questions of life.

Some of us were abducted by aliens. Some had visions of heaven(hell?)through rock and roll.
Others wrote science fiction about advanced civilizations and powerful spirits. New age movements developed which emphasised the effects of unpleasant hidden memories on the present life.

I honestly believe that prophesy of Joel is being used by Jesus Christ to communicate the reality of worlds and civilizations that exist beyond Planet Earth.

In the 21st century, Jesus wants to empower us so we can perceive what has happened with the Kingdom of God over the last two thousand years.

The internet helps to create a common mind on those things which we have shared in the past.

Memories of this life and past lives can be saved.

It is from the above experiences that Age New Age Christianity has developed.

Within the near future, I plan to put these spiritual insights and blog entries into a separate webpage.

I'm interested in your personal journey through life.
Please share it with me.

Article Of The Week By Pat Buchanan
Mood:  a-ok
Who'd ever think that an arch-conservative like Pat Buchanan would honestly look at the down side of occupying foreign countries? Here's some interesting quotes:

"But if the aim of suicide bombers is not to advance Islamism in a war of civilizations, what is its purpose? Pape's conclusion: "(S)uicide-terrorist attacks are not so much driven by religion as by a clear strategic objective: to compel modern democracies to withdraw military forces from the territory that the terrorists view as their homeland. From Lebanon to Sri Lanka to Chechnya to Kashmir to the West Bank, every major suicide terrorist campaign has had as its central objective to compel a democratic state to withdraw."

"Before the U.S. invasion, says Pape, "Iraq never had a suicide attack in its history. Since our invasion, suicide terrorism has been escalating rapidly, with 20 attacks in 2003, 48 in 2004 and (more than) 50 in just the first five months of 2005. Every year since the U.S. invasion, suicide terrorism has doubled ... Far from making us safer against terrorism, the operation in Iraq has stimulated suicide terrorists and has given suicide terrorism a new lease on life."

"Between 1982 and 1986, there were 41 suicide-bomb attacks on U.S., French, and Israeli targets in Lebanon. When U.S. and French troops withdrew and Israel pulled back to a six-mile buffer zone, suicide bombings virtually ceased."

If anyone has evidence to the contrary, please send it to me.

A Birthday With Something To Cheer About
Mood:  celebratory
I wish my wife, Irene, HAPPY BIRTHDAY today. Of course, her age is a state secret.

A good friend of ours gave her/us tickets to a concert and spending money for a vacation near Orillia(i.e. Casino Rama)

"The FabFour" tribute concert was just fantastic. It was like experiencing an ultimate Beatle's performance that never occurred in real life. The surrealistic sights and sounds of "Sargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" were particularly impressive. Four stars.

Irene also won at the slots and it rained yesterday and today ending a month long drought in the Greater Toronto Area.

If it makes you happy to see us and our plants happy, well than be happy.
Who Are The FabFour?

Harry Potter Under Wraps In Canada
Over the last few days across from where I work at Canada Post(i.e.WLPP), I saw security guards watching postal cages that contained the newest Harry Potter book. There was yellow police tape around the area.

I've never seen mail guarded this way in all my years in the big house(i.e.Gateway).

I believe the release date for this novel is Friday.

You must give credit to CPC for trying to keep a lid on Harry Potter's most sought after adventure.

The Mythology Of Superheroes Continues
Mood:  on fire
Superheroes come in different packages. Some are profound and gifted like "The Jedi Knights" while others like "The Fantastic Four" are goofy and cartoonish.

Out of the same environment that produced alien attacks, the H-Bomb and new age religions, superheroes were born, perhaps, too many of them.

Most of them had incredible physical powers that could be used against badguys like aliens from Mars.

Except for Doctor Strange or Harry Potter, few of these superguys had developed heightened spiritual powers.

Under a mild-mannered exterior, there could lie a secret superbeing. Maybe, this is true for a few humans, but not for most of us. What about you? Do you have a secret powerful identity?
