best not to be wiched...

Psalms 101:1 I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O Lord, will I sing. 2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. 3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me. 4 A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person. 5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer. 6 Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me. 7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight. 8 I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the Lord.

Pandemic Saturday


The really sad thing is...this appropriate mashup that first appeared on Twitter isn't nearly as embarrassing as the full interview.  "It is what it is" when speaking about the number of deaths from Covid-19...now over 160,000 in the US.  This from a president that assured the country back in January, "It's one person coming in from China.  We have it under control.  It's going to be just fine,"...and has repeatedly downplayed the crisis and keeps doubling down on all his lies.

parts...

New watch stem from Bulgaria is a perfect match - although it will have to get cut down to fit the case.  I broke the stem on this Russian watch when I first began working on it over 2 months ago.  Now waiting on 6 identical parts movements that I got for 24 bucks including shipping from the Ukraine.  Need to replace a lost clutch wheel on this movement.  Servicing (and getting parts for) old watches takes a lot of patience. 92,102,78,0,C

mail order magic...

Five weeks later and I just received a watch stem from Bulgaria that I ordered from eBay (ten bucks including shipping) for one of my Russian watches.  Reminds me of the days when I was a kid and would mail in cereal box tops for a prize of some kind.  The delivery time was usually listed as 6-8 weeks.  88,95,78,0,B

the work of thy hand...

Isaiah 64:4 For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him. 5 Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, those that remember thee in thy ways: behold, thou art wroth; for we have sinned: in those is continuance, and we shall be saved. 6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. 7 And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities. 8 But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. Isaiah 64

Pandemic Saturday

The numbers are still growing - but the good news is, Trump is finally going to take some definitive action in regard to the pandemic.  He wants to ban the social app Tik Tok.  That ought to save some American lives...
