Ephesians 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. 25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. 26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27 Neither give place to the devil.

My last vacation...


On this day seven years ago, I came home after 2 weeks in the hospital.

Are there some people too wicked to be saved?  No.  Not because they are too sinful, but because they are being misguided by Satan and resist the Holy Spirit's calling for repentance and belief.
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

map quest...

I have known for years that the property line overlay provided by The Property Owners Association of Terlingua Ranch Inc. (as well as the Brewster County Tax Assessors Office) is incorrect and has led to several instances of new owners building on someone else's property.  Rather than try to correct their maps, the get around any liability for providing this misinformation with the following disclaimer: "Our mapping programs should be used as a guide.  Only a licensed surveyor can give you the actual boundaries and GPS coordinates of your property."  By starting with correct section lines, it is fairly simple to extrapolate property lines even down to 5 acre tracts and end up with precise locations without the expense of a surveyor.  For an example, here are some selections in my area.  The top map is the incorrect POATRI/Tax office overlay on Google Earth and the bottom map is from the Texas Railroad Commission website - showing the correct section lines with corrected property lines within my section.  70,74,46,0,B

new shower...

First up on the trailer renovation - a new bathroom with a normal adult human sized shower.  Shower bases can be surprisingly expensive.  This is the best deal out there... 72,80,43,0,B

ponder the path...

Proverbs 4:25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. 26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. 27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

Pandemic Saturday

Has nothing to do with infringing upon your personal liberties.  Mandates because there are too many stupid people out there.

I coordinated 3 other jobs for Dig Terlingua (713-907-5259) while he was in the area to do my site clearing.  This is part of one of them... 71,77,62,0,W
