It Has to be…..

done. no way around it!

How does yours truly keep his PC running smoothly ? In one word, maintenance!

Just like a person takes care of his/her car one needs to do maintenance on their computer.You just can not drive a car without gas and oil so you need tools to care for your computer.

As for myself here is a list of tools I use on a regular bases;

Now that this year is closing I make sure to run all the above on December 31st. Why? This gives me the confidence  that I am going into a new year with a squeakie clean computer. Why all the detail?  Every item I use provides a little something that another may miss. The PC Pitstop mentioned is run after the others have done their task. PC Pitstop helps make me aware of areas that need adjusting

Now its time for you to put your computer through its paces to be sure your going into the new year with a cleaned up system.

See you next year!

happy new year 003

 

“Good Day!”

Allow me to ask you a question, then I will proceed; Do you remember a radio announcer by the name of Paul Harvey?   I know I sure do!  Just as a refresher here are a few quotes you may remember:

Sometimes we can get so caught-up in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season that we forget something ever so simple. Christmas does not have to be high-tech. In fact it is about as low tech as you can get. And yet, well this may seem sappy and even Biblical but where along the line did society, as a whole, forget about, “our brothers keeper.”

As a Christian I see people in my church helping one another just like a family does. Yet, there is two parts of society that often seems to get neglected #1 those who are single and maybe with no family and #2 those who are in prisons both locally and globally.

Are we really our brothers keeper? or is that basic of basic principals gone down the ways of floppy disks and software no longer apt to keep-up with an ever changing world?

Im no sure if Paul Harvey was a simple man, and he may very well was. I would like to think he was one part of society, just like my church, who….knew how to be a “brothers keeper.” Instead of all the fighting and protests thats going on. Maybe one should ask a friend or neighbor, “can I be your brothers keeper?”

Believe it or not the principle of our brothers keeper ought to ring loud not just at Christmas time. Instead it ought to ring 365.4 days a year all over this place we call earth.

I bet you thought this entry was in regards to some store hawking their goods right?

Gotcha!

What this is about is you clearing out unwanted emails

emailbord

As you may know, not all email is spam!  Some email comes your way from various places.  Example: when I recently moved I was getting mail from seemingly every corner of the globe; and im not just talking about email. All of which I was glad to receive as it provided ideas how to fix up my little corner of this place called Earth.

Now you know that companies X, Y,and Z will send mail for a limited time. And to cut their losses they will discontinue sending you their material out of cost cutting measures. That is how they operate using the postal system.

Email is different. To companies X,Y and Z email is a freebie. Thus, they have nothing to lose as long as you or your email provider does not declare it as spam. To stop getting email from just about any company look down at the bottom of their email. In very small print you ought to see the word, “unsubscribe.”   Click on that word and you should no longer receive that companies email within a weeks time. If after seven working days you continue to receive their material then you can classify it as spam.

Just how often does yours truly clean up his email ? Normally, it comes down to twice a year. But I make sure its done in the last two weeks in December, mostly because I like to have a clean slate going into January.

Word to the wise

I maintain three mail accounts: one for my friends, my Gmail account for 98% of Google related material and my third strictly for business which gets a once over before deleting. How many email accounts should you have? The answer is simple; whatever you are comfortable with. If you can handle only one that’s okay too.

I now return you to your favorite shopping location.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL

PS

Never do the following #1 never give anyone you work with your personal email address, not even your  boss! Give them a different email address. #2 Never give out your password(s) not even to your spouse, family members and so forth.

See you in 2015

happy new year 003

 

Housing Update 5/20/14

Yesterday I informed  you that I had not located a place to call my own. Furthermore I gave you a phone number of the church where you could assist if you so desired. That was over 24 hours ago. This entry will bring you up to speed as to what has transpired.

  1.  a house has opened up in the Flint Michigan area that belonged to someone at the church of church I attend. Listed price is around 24K, which is below what I have been approved for.
  2.  While coloring of a house is little concern it happens to be the very color I said I wanted  way back in October of 2013. Thus, I am getting what I prayed for.

Now I bet you are wondering if you can still assist right? And the answer is a big indeed and here is how.

  1. If you want to help with a financial gift please continue to follow the directions of yesterdays entry. Simply contact Faith City Church in Fenton Michigan by calling 1-810 570-2200 and ask how you can help with David Lieblers house.
  2. The second way you can help is by helping to fulfill a special Wish List that was created in Amazon which can be located @ http://amzn.com/w/9H6VZ2GSGZ4Y  

Since this is my first house and a “man cave” everything except the kitchen sink will be needed. As you look through the Wish List you may be able to see themes taking place. Cases in point;  Bathroom: Pirate/Tall Ship theme   Living Room: Cars/Transportation  Master Bedroom: Space/NASA/Hubble  Second Bedroom: converted to den/TV room

Please note the following: a move in date has not been set as of yesterday. However, it could transpire by the end of June.

Therefor, moving into an empty house is truly not preferred.

Mind you of this one very thing: It is God who pulled this together and I can account this to  another “infallible proof” of just how much HE cares for one of His people. But make no mistake about it this very God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob uses people on this planet to manifest Himself. So the  final question comes down to this:

Will you be used of God to assist someone in the faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ?

 

 

 

Housing Update

For some readers this is a much needed entry.

Late last year yours truly wound up losing a place to live through various lies.
Since then I have been living on God’s good grace staying a month or two at a Christians home. All the while waiting to buy my very first house I can afford in the Holly Michigan area. The biggest issue is money since I am on disability and NOT eligible for low income housing.
So as June 2014 approaches I continue to live on God’s good grace.

Just a note here to my dear readers and friends.
If you are so inclined to assist and would like more information please contact Faith City church in Fenton Michigan at 1-810-750-2200 And ask how you can help David Liebler  and his housing issue.

Thank you for spending a little time today with…..Littlethunder.

Where are you?

The following is true. Names have not been changed to protect any person alive or dead.

I was not born with the name I have now. In reality I was born on July 27 1953 in Norman Oklahoma as David Rushlow. I don’t remember anything about my real mother except that she must have cared about life to make sure I was born. I heard tell had I had grandparents in the Rose City Michigan area but I would not know is only hearsay.

The people who adopted me said hey “loved me” but when their little boy turned out to be the “black sheep” in the family they kicked me out of the house at the age of twelve. Never to live under their roof again. When I tried to reconcile with them in 2005 they again kicked me, and my Christian friend I was with, out the door.

                  Of all the things I have on my “Bucket List” there is only one thing I would want the most…..

To meet and spend time with my biological family once and for all.
Where are you mom, dad?
