    E-Scooters

    E-bikes would be the ideal form of transport for the elderly if it were not that the greater number have lower balance control. An alternative could be a three-wheeler such as the 'Pedago Trike' which also has a back rest and a small boot at the rear. However, South Africa has no clear laws for the use of these machines. Seems they have to be registered and licensed. Ebikes.docx
  2. Many years ago, when it came to birds, an evolutionist reasoned the only answer is creation. Even God's angels were amazed, and shouted jofully. (Job 38:4-7) Watch the mating dance of the Great Argus:
  3. Hello our sister in Germany. I'm losing out at this website, because of not being familiar with what's going on. Is there a link where one can see the latest topics?
  4. The entire National Geographic August 2018 is about sleep. One third of us will experience diagnosable sleep disorder. Animals will sooner die from lack of sleep than hunger. An upset in a substance called beta-amyloid is closely related to Alzheimer's. About 60% of the residents at our frail care home are sufferers.

      Interesting. 

  5. That is something else that pains me. My beloved wife died in 2014 after hardly any tribulation. 60 years, 7 months and 8 days. See the memorial I made: Honey 2014 Field ministry.docx
  6. Being plagued during sleep by the memory of sins during early years. Knowing that these were forgiven does little to ease the pain. Happy is the person who is able to endure such pain.
  7. "And after that God saw that everything he had made, and look it was very good." Gen. 1:31. A Watchtower once said that the imperfection which came upon humanity after Adam sinned cannot be accurately explained. We must therefore assume that the female was created flawless before that. Transgender and all other imperfections have been our lot since.
  8. There will always be those who introduce fanciful styles. Most of us have noticed the latest, IE: Shaving all hair from 10cm above the ears downwards. IOW, similar to the topnotch canary.
  9. Beards WorldNewsMedia.docxBeards WorldNewsMedia.docxBeards WorldNewsMedia.docx
  10. Imagine those who once had beards but had to shave later. Now that it's allowed they again decide to have a beard. What will the public think when they open the door to a calling person and see what appears to be someone who apparently hasn't shaved for a few days. Especially when the person introduces himself as a Jehovah's Witness. The first one to have a beard.
  11. Sorry but my Windows 7 cannot download OpenOffice. The week had seven days since the beginning, but the names of the days were numbers. (Matt. 28:1) We can be sure that the current pagan names for the days will be done away with. (See attachment) WeekdaynamesPagan.docx
  12. Sorry, but Windows 7 on my second hard drive cannot download OpenOffice. We can be sure that that current pagan months will change or return to the 10 month system. The week had seven days since creation, but the pagan names of the days will come to an end. (See attachment) The new names may just be numbers, (Matt. 28:1) or Jehovah may give them new names. Weekday names Pagan.docx
  13. We can expect that very many millions will never return to this earth. “For 40 years I felt a loathing toward that generation, and I said: “They are a people who always go astray in their hearts; They have not come to know my ways. “So I swore in my anger: “They will not enter into my rest.” (Psalm 95:10, 11) If Jehovah condemned the rebellious Israelites for being unfaithful, what hope is there for all the mass murderers since the beginning. All unrepentant sinners: “For it is better for you to lose one of your members than for your whole body to be pitched into Ge·henʹna. Also, if your right hand is making you stumble, cut it off and throw it away from you. For it is better for you to lose one of your members than for your whole body to land in Ge·henʹna." (Matthew 5:29, 30) The Scribes and Pharisees: “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because you travel over sea and dry land to make one proselyte, and when he becomes one, you make him a subject for Ge·henʹna twice as much so as yourselves.” (Matthew 23:15) The inescapable sin: “For this reason I say to you, every sort of sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the spirit will not be forgiven. For example, whoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the holy spirit, it will not be forgiven him, no, not in this system of things nor in that to come.” (Matthew 12:31, 32)

      Hello guest!
    A resurrection plant is any poikilohydric plant that can survive extreme dehydration, even over months or years. The resurrection plant Selaginella lepidophylla reviving within 3 hours after the addition of water. Examples include: Anastatica hierochuntica, also known as the Rose of Jericho, a plant species native to deserts of North Africa Asteriscus (plant) Boea hygrometrica Haberlea rhodopensis Mesembryanthemum, the plant can revive within a short period of time after a drought Tillandsia Myrothamnus flabellifolius, a plant species native to Southern Africa Xerophyta spp., a monocotyledonous genus typically occurring on rock outcrops in Southern African grasslands Craterostigma spp., members of the Linderniaceae/Scrophulariaceae with snapdragon-like flowers Ramonda serbica, a species in the Gesneriaceae family Selaginella lepidophylla, a plant species native to North America, Central and South America, and sold as a novelty Lichen, a symbiosis that can survive in extreme desiccation, Certain resurrection plants have long been sold in their dry, "lifeless" form as curiosities. This custom was noted by many 19th century authors and continues today. In December, 2015, resurrection plants were featured in a TED talk given by Professor Jill Farrant , Molecular and Cell Biology, University of Cape Town, South Africa, who performs targeted genetic modification of crop plants to make them tolerate desiccation by activating genes that are already there but not natively expressed in response to drought. …………………………………………………… Another Wikipedia link: Selaginella lepidophylla (syn. Lycopodium lepidophyllum) is a species of desert plant in the spikemoss family (Selaginellaceae). S. lepidophylla is noted for its ability to survive almost complete desiccation; during dry weather in its native habitat, its stems curl into a tight ball and uncurl only when exposed to moisture. The outer stems of Selaginella lepidophylla bend into circular rings in a relatively short period of desiccation, whereas inner stems curl slowly into spirals due to the hydro-actuated strain gradient along their length. It is native to the Chihuahuan Desert. Common names for this plant include flower of stone, false rose of Jericho, rose of Jericho, resurrection plant, resurrection moss, dinosaur plant, siempre viva, stone flower, and doradilla. Selaginella lepidophylla is easily confused with Anastatica: both species are resurrection plants and form tumbleweeds, and they share the common name "rose of Jericho."
      Hello guest!
    An article in the Forbes magazine November 2017 says, “In 2050, Africa will be a desert?” (Based on climate change) The magazine also says, “Africa is likely to be the continent most affected by climate change, and consequently drought. One woman’s solution is plants that can be resurrected back to life. How else must we be prepared.” ………………………………….
