While in California, we visited the headquarters of Facebook in Menlo Park in Silicon Valley on August 9, 2018. It is the world's most widely-used social media platform subscribed to by two and a half billion people. That includes the other familiar services of Instagram and WhatsApp, also owned by Facebook. An astounding 25,000 people work for Facebook.
This is the Way - Walk Ye In It
This is the Way of God above
It's the language of ”Everlasting Love”
THE LOOKING GLASS
When I realize how my life's been spent
Making a self-image for the world to see,
And how that picture has now been rent
By God's assessment of what makes me, me,
I would like to post this Memorial Day.
My Dad was 16 years old when the Nazis invaded Ukraine. Hitler outlawed high school attendance and offered many youths the "opportunity" to go to Germany and work and earn some money and return in 3 months. 3 YEARS later my Dad is gaunt famished and working as a slave in Nazi labor camps.

On Wednesday, December 3, 1997 Jim O’Brien, pastor of UCG Cincinnati North and Lexington, KY congregations and I visited with former McDonald’s vice-president and ombudsman, Mr. John D. Cooke. We were guests at his home in Galena, Illinois where he and his wife Marge have retired. Jim O’Brien has been a friend of Mr. Cooke for many years, going back to the time when they both lived in Paducah, Kentucky.
As I sat on my porch in the cool of the day
I heard wild geese calling,
High in the air, with the wind in their wings,
Their echoing voices falling.
Along with few friends about sunset time, I quickly walked over the Pasadena campus of Ambassador College where I went to school from 1966-1968. Some of the stately buildings are there, others are torn down making way for residential condos. Some of you find this slide show of interest.
Bev and I came across Faith-based movie Until Forever. We were looking for a movie that was a true story and found this on Amazon Prime for free. We almost passed over it, but sure glad we didn't!
At our October 17, 2017, Batavia, OH Rotary meeting Newtown Police Chief Tom Synan who is also the co-chairman of the Hamilton County Opiate Task Force was our guest speaker.
