19th-Feb-2017 07:16 am - the same old rap
It is 7:06 AM Sunday morning in the flow of life. Outside I can stars in the morning sky. It looks like it is going to be another sunny day. Lately the days have felt like Spring. I have this feeling another harsh Winter season is behind us even though Spring does not come officially till next month.

I got up this morning around 6:35 AM. This morning our oldest son Caleb and his family are coming over from GR to take me with them to a restaurant they read about for breakfast. From what I gather Caleb and Emily are into eating out at different restaurants. It will be good to see Caleb, Emily, and little Josie Joy.

Last night I read and messed with our main computer and went to bed early.

There is not much else to report new this morning. I suppose I will close to wait.

What I read last night was a book titled, "The Last Innocent White Man in America and other writings" by John Leonard. I do not know what I will read today. I am still feeling at a loss.

It is in the flow of existence 2:54 PM Saturday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is kind of scary knowing Trump's Secret Police know where we live. I am expecting a whole scale slaughter of Americans who are opposing Trump's Presidency. I expect any day a Russian invasion and a armed take over of the White House by Trump's Secret Army and the Russian military. Right now there are Russians submarine's off the East Coast armed with missiles pointed at the White House. Some believe the Russians are blackmailing Trump. The Russians are controlling Trump and want him to let them take over America or be left alone to take over the free world. The Bear has come awaken as predicted in the Bible/the OT Prophets.

Trump has already shut down the News Media and is spreading his falsehoods/lies. Sad to know millions of Americans are eating up Trump's attacks against the News Media. Soon Trump will only have Fox News as his channel of lies/false information. American is being fed to the dogs. We are being set up for a dictatorship headed by the Right Wing Republican party leaders who have bowed their knees to Donald Trump and the Russians. Trump is an embodiment of a Anti-Christ.

I have had a normal day for a Saturday. I volunteered at the library used bookstore the Book Nook from 10 AM till 1 PM. I left early so as to unload my van of the used books I purged from our library to donate to the library used books store. I plan to go through our books next week and get rid of some more used books.

The Book Nook was slow so I mainly wandered the store and read from a book titled, "The Last Innocent White Man in America and other writings" by John Leonard. I brought home from the Book Nook these used books to add to our library-

"William Blake: The Complete Poems" Penguin Classics

"Florence and the Renaissance" by Alain J. Lemattre & Erich Lessing

While at the Book Nook my friend Tim stopped by. We talked and after the Book Nook we went to Goodwill and a grocery store. Tim needed some food items and so did I. At the Goodwill thrift store I found only one used paperback to add to our library (which will soon be destroyed by Russian missiles) "Timbuktu" a novel by Paul Auster.

After grocery shopping I drove Tim to his place and came home to face the last days of the America. In the mail I received a book I had ordered titled, "Reading For My Life: Writings. 1958-2008" by John Leonard.

There is not much else to report. I am going to close to wait to be shot by Trump's Secret Police for being a lover of Truth and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Not A BookTube Newbie Tag-Questions:

1. How old is your channel? I made my first BookTube video in September 2015 so I have been making BookTube videos going on almost two years.

2. What are your favorite videos to make? My favorite videos to make are when I am just being myself as a book worm. I like just being real and sharing my love for collecting books.

3. What is one piece of advice you would give to someone wanting to join booktube? The one piece adivce I would give in joining Booktube is make videos and don't stop. It really bothers me that I really get into a certain BookTuber and then puff their gone! So if you start making BookTube videos please don't stop.

4. Since joining have you run into any unforeseen challenges? I have not come across any uforeseen challenges in making BookTube videos. Maybe sometimes I feel insecure about what I am setting forth in my videos like book reviews or personal views. But my life motto has always been "Be real and let the shit fly!"

5. What is a favorite book/series you’ve read because of booktube? I have discovered many new books through watching BookTube especially watching Steve Donoghue.'s channel.

6. Overall, what is your favorite aspect about booktube? My favorite aspect about BookTube is one someone gives an intelligent summary of a book. I also like BookTube videos when the individual just shares something personal about their life. I do not think every video in BookTube has to be only about what the individual is reading at the present moment. I like videos where I sense I am experiencing a real person.

7. Want to spread the booktube love? (Yes? GREAT!) Give at least one newbie a shout out! I like to give a shout out to Molly De Montaigne's BookTube channel. I just find this young lady wonderful. All her videos make me feel good inside.

17th-Feb-2017 11:55 am - beef pot pie
It is 11:47 AM late Friday morning in the flow of existence on the right hand of God. Outside I can see the sun is shining so the world has not been destroyed yet.

I got up this morning around 6 o'clock AM. I got up made myself oatmeal for breakfast and also made a fresh pot of coffee. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary. After writing in my paper diary I listened to music and messed with my books. I have been down in the lower level straightening up our library. I am taking books that I have two of/doubles to the Book Nook tomorrow when I volunteer from 10 AM till 1 PM.

Not much else to report. I am tired as usual. Existence keeps going by.

Last night I made a video for my BookTube channel and listened to music. I went to bed around 11 o'clock PM last night. I have been sleeping soundly these days for some odd reason.

I have been mainly reading these days from a book titled, "The Last Innocent White Man in America and other writings" by John Leonard.

Our oldest son Caleb called this morning and asked if I wanted to go out for breakfast with them this coming Sunday. I said Sure I love seeing our kids and baby Josie Joy. I wish I could be in Phoenix to see baby Jack and the girls Lou and Maggie. I love all our children and grandchildren.

It is 2:14 PM Thursday afternoon here by Lake Michigan. It has been a cold gray day, but no snow or rain thus far.

This morning I decided to leave the house and visit a library used books store in Grand Haven called Cheapstacks Used Books located inside the Loutit District Library building lower level. I bought these used books this morning from Cheapstacks for our library-

"Every Man A Speculator: A History Of Wall Street in American Life" by Steven Fraser

After visiting Cheapstacks I headed back to Holland. Before getting to Holland I stopped at the Rosy Mound Natural Area and took a brisk walk. It was very cold by Lake Michigan so I walked to a place I could see the Lake and took some photos and headed back to the car. It was too cold to walk all over the Natural Area plus everything was brown with winter decay.

So this has been my day. I am extremely wasted this afternoon. I did get a phone call from Carol around 9:31 PM last night telling me baby Jack Stewart had been born and was doing fine. Bethany also was doing fine. So all went well with Jack being born into this world of woe. It is sad to think America will soon be attacked from North Korea and Russia. Blood will soon be running in the streets. North Korea will knock out San Francisco and Russia will knock out New York City. Chaos will reign and Trump will surrender America to the Russians. Millions of Americans will die especially those who voted for Trump. It is all very sad. I am sure Trump and his family will sell to the Russians America and set up a palace in Russia.
