in'n'out...

The Field Lab - Wed, 2017/12/13 - 1:21pm
Prep wasn't so bad and the procedure was a breeze.  It sure was clean in there.  No complications...nothing out of the ordinary...one tiny polyp removed.  The bottom right photo is the ileocecal valve - the valve between the ileum of the small intestine and the cecum of the large intestine; prevents material from flowing back from the large to the small intestine.  No special diet requirements after the procedure today and won't have to enjoy this experience again for 5 years.

religion...

The Field Lab - Sun, 2017/12/10 - 4:04pm
Having a personal relationship with God begins the moment we realize our need for Him, admit we are sinners, and in faith receive Jesus Christ as Savior and know the truth that is The Holy Spirit. God, our heavenly Father, has always desired to be close to us, to have a relationship with us. Before Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden (Genesis chapter 3), both he and Eve knew God on an intimate, personal level. They walked with Him in the garden and talked directly to Him. Due to the sin of man, we became separated and disconnected from God.  Joining a church will not necessarily enhance that relationship.  Don't rely on a self worshiping cult...skip "playing church"...just Jesus in the environment He has created is all you need.
James 1:5  If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

On this day 10 years ago...

After spending 2 weeks in Alpine planning, McCoys dropped off my first load of building supplies on December 7, 2007.  I was camped on a spot 7 miles from my property where I began building the panels for my house.   Bottom photo is the virgin spot where TFL emerged.  33,36,32, .03",W

Met my colonoscopist today...former New Yorker so we exchanged big city stories.  I told him I bet he didn't expect to see another a**hole from NY since he moved to Texas.  Procedure is scheduled for next Wednesday.  Stocked up on supplies and now hunkering down for 2 really crappy days with a slight chance of snow on Thursday.  47,58,46,0,B

Really...they are friends

The Field Lab - Sat, 2017/12/02 - 5:20pm
As for Ben vs the drone.  I used to see this kind of horn action a lot when there were wild longhorns loose around my property.  I find it particularly interesting that Ben instinctively knows how to use his horns without being taught by a herd.  Among other uses, their horns allow them to attain a stature beyond the compactness of their bodies to serve as a warning.  They are not used as weapons - but instead they are used in a species specific manner to push (not poke) and to hold or deflect an attack.  They are frequently used to hold their heads together preventing them from slipping off during a head to head trial of strength - the means by which they establish their place in the herd. (I established my place with Ben a long time ago.)  Horned cattle also exhibit quite specific grooming behavior - using them to scratch their backs or using the tip of another cow to scratch and clean their own eyes.  Each animal is acutely aware of the size and form of its horns and where they end.  Benita took it to the next level by using her horns to scrape the fruit off of prickly pear cactus, making them easier to eat without getting a nose full of spikes.  64,76,45,0,C

another live view

The Field Lab - Thu, 2017/11/30 - 3:44pm
Figured out how to live stream from the drone to Facebook this morning.  Pretty much the same procedure as YouTube - not intuitive or simple.  Pretty tricky to do without cell service and without a mobile device like a smart phone since that is what these platforms are primarily configured for.  It's a matter of mirroring the screen of the tablet I use to control the drone so that it appears on my laptop through my local wifi network.  Then I have to use broadcasting software that can utilize screen capture as a source to upload from my laptop to the internet.  There are a few more steps involved but they are too difficult to explain.  I remembered to also record video from the drone for this trip.  Tune in tomorrow night... 71,79,41,0,C

My tiny world...

The Field Lab - Tue, 2017/11/28 - 2:35pm
Just updated the firmware and android app for the Mavic Pro.  One of the new features enabled is a 360° panorama automatically stitched together after the drone shoots an autonomous 34 photo sequence.  This is pretty much how I see the world most of the time.  75,84,43,0,B

Matthew 19:25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?  26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Chupa got an early Christmas present.  My friend Dwight Brooks (of the Panther Mountain Clan) made this with the spur Chupa lost 2 years ago.  OK - it really wasn't for Chupa, but you get the idea... 72,85,49,0,B
