The Ultimate Referral

By Alonzo | Wed, 01/25/2023 - 01:00

If there was only one thing I could recommend to you today, it would be to have faith in Jesus Christ.  He is the Word of God.  He is the Son of the only true God. To have a relationship with Him is the single thing you and I need.  He prayed to His Father "...this is eternal life, that they should know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent." - Jesus (John 17:3)

- We can live eternally from the moment we know (believe in) God...through Jesus.

"For God has not sent his Son into the world that he may judge the world, but that the world may be saved through him." - Jesus (John 3:17)

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whosoever believes on him may not perish, but have life eternal." - Jesus  (John 3:16)

- Please believe in Jesus today.

Don't BEF or GMO

By Alonzo | Mon, 01/30/2023 - 14:26

We recommend you don't partake of any processed food that contains any genetically modified organism (GMO) or bio-engineered (BE [...we say BEF for "bio-engineered food"]) food ingredient.        
Food labels as of January 2022 are required to inform consumers that BE's are present.  It's been disappointing to see how prevalent these labels are.        
Almost every single soybean and most corn grown in the United States is genetically modified to be able to be grown in a field where they can use chemical herbicides to spray the plant crops - to kill the weeds around the plants without killing the crops.  And soybeans and corn are used in some form in almost every single product on the grocery shelves.        
The argument persists over whether GMO's and BE's are harmful or not.  We believe that any food that grows in nature is better for you because it was designed to be healthy for you.  If a food ingredient has been modified genetically, it's our opinion it will not satisfy you and may likely be harmful long-term to your body as it travels through your alimentary canal1
Another issue is that GMO/BE's are used to feed livestock which may be sold to you at the grocery store.

1 My opinion is based on my belief that God created the earth and designed it to be a blessing to us; to feed us, cloth us and otherwise provide for us.

AeroPress

AeroPress The Aeropress coffee press is an amazing little tool.  It only brews small amounts of coffee - which may seem like> a disadvantage at first - but this gives you precise control of brewing your coffee.     
We have our own system that we use; amount of coffee, amount of water, length of brewing time, water temperature, etc.  We may try to post a video here later of some of the more unique things we do when brewing.

  • Inexpensive - to purchase and operate
  • Lightweight and portable (they make a camping version that's more compact)
  • Easy to operate and clean

Michelin Tires

By Alonzo | Fri, 01/20/2023 - 00:16

They are more expensive than other tires, but they're better in every aspect important in a tire.  
They last longer, ride better, handle leaks/punctures better, and that makes them an excellent investment.  
If you see Michelins on a used car, you can be sure of two things:  
 

  1. the car is worth more than if it had less expensive, lower quality tires, and
  2. the person who owned the car cared about their cars and their tires
