Review Summary

Smalltime Oakland mob enforcers Jesus (David "Dyno" Rocha) and Navajas (Carlos "Pelon" Vasquez) attempt to smuggle ten pounds of heroin out of Texas and into California. But their pickup truck is stolen somewhere in the Lone Star State, with the drugs in it, and they have to turn into detectives to recover it. They quickly find a record store owner who knows the dirtball rednecks who stole the truck; the rednecks have set up a sale to a local pusher with a bad haircut. Jesus and Navajas discover the details and set out to interrupt the proceedings -- with guns ablazing. ~ Buzz McClain, Rovi

moonwalking birds, alcoholic monkeys, fish with two..uh...Anyway, we started a 56-year series on Isaiah

I love our tribe.
Today's  open source  ( or is it "open sores"?..see this) conversation on the practical spiritual application of some of these "world's weirdest" animals was great:

Here's the whole series of "World's Wierdest"..270 weird animals!
------------------------------------
We also started a 56-year series on Isaiah..to which everyone contributed.
Spy Scott gave some historical help, as you can see..












Here are  a couple links on the puns and wordplays in Isaiah that were mentioned:

Click this for Isaiah 42 wordplay (on board).

Also

Isaiah 5:7 and Puns in Hebrew

Since I’m presently working on Isaiah for the series it’s only natural that I’d wind up in Chapter 5 with it’s stunningly beautiful pun

לְמִשְׁפָּט֙ וְהִנֵּ֣ה מִשְׂפָּ֔ח לִצְדָקָ֖ה וְהִנֵּ֥ה צְעָקָֽה׃

God looked for justice (mishpat) but only saw oppression (mispach). God looked for righteousness (tzedakah) and instead he heard an outcry of pain (tz’acha).
This pun is virtually impossible to render in English. link

Obituary: Kenneth Neal Adams --"Keltic Ken" --passed away peacefully in Fresno, CA on March 22, 2015, at the age of 63, after a long, courageous battle with cancer.  Ken was born on January 28, 1952, in Harrisville, MI, to Hollie and Mary Adams .

Ken had a great love for Australia and treasured the time he spent there as a youth. He had planned to get dual citizenship as his mother was born in Sydney, Australia. He was looking forward to returning to his old stomping grounds in the future.

His passion for Celtic Christian music fostered a love for Ireland and a desire to visit one day.

Ken loved to travel and hitchhiked across the country twice,which yielded many entertaining stories,which he enjoyed relaying enthusiastically.

Ken had a heart for people and enjoyed donating his time and energy to many ministries and causes, to further proclaim the name of Jesus.

With his gregarious personality, he made friends everywhere he went.

Ken had a 30 year long career in radio broadcasting. He was instrumental in getting KDUV FM, in Visalia, CA, on the air in 1991. He also was the Station Manager at KRDU AM, in Dinuba, CA,from 1995 to 2012 .KRDU was the first commercial Christian radio station in the nation. For many years, Ken was the voice of the Fresno Rescue Mission, Evangel Home and Feed My Sheep Ministries weekly broadcasts. He shared his love for Celtic Christian music through his online live365.com radio station, Celtic Christian Spirit,from 2000 to 2014,which is now being managed by his daughter.

He is preceded in death by his parents. Ken is survived by his

wife Cathy; and daughter Christina.

A memorial service will be held at the G.L.Johnson Chapel at Peoples Church in Fresno, CA, on Saturday, April 18, 2015,at 2:00 p.m.; a  reception will follow.  Remembrances may be sent to Ken's church, Third Day Fresno, 4124 W. Fig Tree Lane, Fresno, CA 93722, to help the family with expenses.

Invisible Gorillas and Unbroken Zamperinis

Great time today!
I love our tribe.  One never knows what's going to happen.
For example, prayer time for Cher.

 Here are the videos we showed:

1)videos related to the "Invisible Gorilla" test for "selective attention"
2)The Billy Graham film on   Louis Zamperini-- picks up where the film "Unbroken" leaves off

------------
1)videos related to the "Invisible Gorilla" test for "selective attention"
Here's what we did, and I recommend doing it this way.
Show the first video starting at 4 second mark, telling the group that no one should say anything, or make any noise, while watching; just concentrate hard on following the instructions:



 You can see why calling it the "Invisible Gorilla" test might jinx things(:

Here is the backstory:

Of course people have made endless variations:
