New Zealand Convention Farewell

New Zealand District Convention “Safeguard Your Heart” where we had International delegates from USA, Indonesia, Australia & Papua New Guinea, so is perfect for anyone living in New Zealand or any other part of the world or planning to move there, with the best movers for coming to New Zealand that make this job way easier, if you live in USA consider hiring removalists in Brisbane Sunshine Coast.  Attending also was Brother Geoffrey Jackson of the Governing Body, along with Bro Flodin who is an assistant to the Teaching Committee.  All 6 venues were video linked for key talks throughout the program.  After the final session, a special treat was arranged.  (Click the arrow to start the video below.)  All 20,000 delegates at every venue were linked in by video to view this performance by local native New Zealand Maori brothers & sisters.  Very moving.  It’s song 134.


The Most Incredible Volcano Video

The Most Incredible Volcano Video ever shot ! Geoff Mackley, Bradley Ambrose, Nathan Berg, after an epic struggle with the weather for 35 days, we became the first people ever to get this close to Marum Volcano’s famed lava lake on Ambrym Island, Vanuatu. Coming within 30 metres of the lava lake down a watercourse, it was possible to stand the heat for only 6 seconds. With Fire Brigade breathing apparatus and heat proof proximity suit it was possible to stand on the very edge and view the incredible show for over 40 minutes.

Life Choice

So, After about 20+ years I have finally got baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. I had lots of people come up to me and tell me how happy they were for me and ask me how I feel about and my answer is that its was no different from the day before. The true is that i am happy that i have finally did it and I have big responsibility now to live up to the dedication that i have committed to. There was only 4 that were baptized at the circuit assembly that was held in Pasig City, Philippines.


First Bible Reading in Foreign Language Congregation

Well this was the first bible reading I did in a foreign language congregation, I was going to do it Tagalog, but it took me to long to read it. Sound of the video is not that good because the person recording it put their fingers over the microphone. Comments are welcome on how I did on the reading. The council point I had was number 11.


++Good Games Podcast/Video Games and Pizza

Where I work at there is customer that comes in at least once or twice a week and orders pizza. I usually get to talk to for few minutes and one of the last times he was in, we were talking about the jobs he had and he told me that does podcast, so I ask for the address so could listen to it. I was not sure what it was about. I listen to about half of the most current one and notice it was about games, so I when back to listen to the very first one that was in the RSS and it gave me little background on the people that are in the podcast. Everyone that is part of this podcast were in some way employed by Game Crazy either at Hollywood Video or before it was bought by Hollywood Video. They talk about about all different Console Systems and games they have played or going to play for them. It was interesting in the first podcast I was listening to they were talking about Play Station and Play Station 2 and the podcast was in June 05, 2010, but I thought there was Play Station 3 out already, but I might be wrong. I have not listen to them all, but I wonder if they have reviews on PC games, too and not just Console Games. Just a side note, my wife use have Alienware PC, too until she broke it and she only had for 8 months, just mention it  because I heard that couple of the people on the podcast have Alienware PCs.

Castlevania is one the best games for Nintendo systems back in 1980’s. I still remember playing that game, when i was 13 or 14 years old. I played the first 3 or 4 Castlevania’s for the NES and the one for the SNES. I think i still have an arcade version that I use with MAME emulator that play from time to time. I am more of a Old School Arcade and computer games person. I had few console systems but notice the graphics were a lot better on PC then on console systems. Probably the best system I had was the TurboGrafx-16 systems, It did catch on like the other system even though it was lot better system and one thing it did way before other game console system was it had CD-ROM games, which I think at that time no-one had that type of system. The other system that was very good and cost a lot of money was the NEO-GEO system. That console system was just as good as the game in the arcade machines that was produced by SNK. I also played Super Mario World and beat it 3 time(I think it was all the save game spot it had) and got all the special Star Worlds, too. I just remember, I have one of those Virtual Boy, too, I think I bought for about $30.00 or so, when they stop making them. Played some for while and you did get bad head aches from playing it.

I think this is worth checking out, if you like video games and hear some reviews on new games coming out.

Oregon Zoo

I when to the Oregon Zoo with a co-worker and his daughter on Monday. It has been about 4 years since i been there, so I though would be fun to go and see the animals there. One of the most interesting things I seen there was a Star Fish, it was so big. The other interesting thing was that we went over by where the Snakes were and there was support be Python in the exhibit but was not there, so I took a picture of some thermal  image of me and the other people that was there. Supposedly, the python snake uses thermal  heat to track it pray and they had thermal imaging censor there to emulate what the python would see as it was looking at you.

Paper and Box Burning Again

This was a few weeks later, I had some more stuff to burn, so I decided to do after I got off work one day it was almost night time when I started and it  was very windy, so it made for very cool picture of the flames and  there are few videos, too. You can hear the sheep in the back ground off the videos. After it was all done burning the stuff was so hot that it was almost white i color, which look very cool looking.
