Whales in AntarcticaSunday greetings everyone - and welcome to August!

Is anybody out there excited about the upcoming release of Joomla 4.0.0? I am. If you are too, email me and let me know what you are looking forward to.

Today's video share is another one with whales. I really enjoyed watching this a few weeks ago. The fact that it was shot in Antarctica was a bonus for me!

clarinetOh look, Chicken Thursday!

In last Sunday's mailing, the video share was of an amazing Oboe performance - apparently not! It was an amazing performance, but the instrument being played was actually a clarinet. Thanks to G. Taylor and J. Westberg for catching that!

Now, if you are a recent subscriber, you may have wondered how I could be so dumb as to not know the difference between and oboe and a clarinet. If you are not a subscriber, you stopped wondering about me a long time ago and have stuck around simply out of morbid curiosity about what I will misidentify next!

To be fair, I first saw that video on Facebook, where it was described as an oboe performance. It's getting pretty bad when you can't even trust Facebook to be accurate!

Today's video share is fun race between some different animals. However, after this whole oboe/clarinet debacle, I'm not sure all of these are real animals. You be the judge.

Oh Boy Oboe!Sunday greetings everyone!

Today's mailing is much shorter than usual. Grandma Cybersalt is away camping with some of our kids and grandkids, so my plate is fuller around Cybersalt World Headquarters - which includes having to put stuff on my plate, lol.

Also, we have a dear friend whose battle with cancer is not going well, so I have ordered some self-care from the menu and that includes a healthy side order of smaller portions of work.

Today's video share is an amazing jazz performance by Doreen Ketchens on the oboe. In fact, it's so amazing I think that instrument should be renamed to "Oh Boy!"

Old SharkOh look, Chicken Thursday!

If you are reading this news at the beginning of today's PearlyGates mailing, you will notice two items instead of one. That is because neither one of those pieces of content was big enough to make a single mailing. So I am buddying them up and sending them out together.

Today's video share is about the discovery of an incredibly old shark. In fact, in this picture you can see the look on his face when they told him how old he actually was!

Twenty Toes PerformanceSunday greetings everyone!

You may notice a little formatting change in the Cybersalt Digest today. There will continue to be a CleanQuote in each issue, but we are no longer going to make a graphic version of each quote. Grandma Cybersalt, who lines up each item before I write the news and send everything out, has been making those graphics.

I think Susan has done a great job making them, but she is super busy with her work for refugees and running our household so I thought I'd make it a bit more efficient for her work on the bi-weekly digest. I am regularly in awe at how she gracefully organizes and juggles all the roles and jobs she has taken on. 

In fact, the person in this week's video share has nothing on my wife!

Sleeping FoxOh look, Chicken Thursday!

One of my favorite things about my consulting business is that I am often contacted by people from around the world who are looking for help with their web pages, businesses and organizations. I enjoy learning about the situations they live in and a bit about their lives.

One recent contact was a person in Italy. He was looking for help with the website of his healthcare focused company (a site with 1.5 millions users and 3 million pageviews per month.) After taking care of business we visited for a while and I learned that he was an avid tennis player. He has also been confined to a wheelchair since he was hit by a car when was 17 years old.

Tennis is not a sport that has ever "floated my boat" but I do admire the athleticism of those who play it - on foot or from a chair!

Today's video share is tennis related. It's a video of Mansour Bahrami, who makes tennis look really easy to play. Of course, only the best in the world can make challenging things look easy.

earth 2Sunday greetings everyone!

Today, Grandma Cybersalt and I are going to a church building to participate in a worship service for the first time since March of 2020. I realize that's an odd way of saying "Today we are going to church" but let me explain.

I don't think worship only happens in a church building. Worship is showing reverence and adoration to God. That can be done in many ways and in many places. Throughout the pandemic we worshipped with our church family through tuning into the streaming of our church's worship team and pastors leading us over FaceBook or YouTube. Songs and sermons were heard, and communion taken with reverence and adoration. 

I also I don't think worship is only singing and listening to sermons. If you can do it with reverence and adoration to God, it is worship. How you drive to work, treat your neighbours, speak to annoying people, file your taxes, and more is just as important worship as what takes place in church (maybe even more in some cases.) This truth brings a perspective to every aspect of our lives that can transform even the most mundane of places into a cathedral and make the the smallest of acts equal to the greatest performance of any angelic choir.

Don't get me wrong, the Bible teaches God's children to gather together to worship and I'm super excited for gathering in person again! But let's not limit worship to one place and one activity.

Today's video share is also about perspective. This video shows something we all know, but something we probably don't have an accurate perspective on. We know the earth is rotating, but this video shows it really is!

Today's video share is a news story from my neck of the woods.

We live on the coast of the Salish where there are two types of orca (killer whales) swim around. There are the resident killer whales, which only eat salmon, and the transient killer whales which eat mammals.

For context, the whale in this story is one of the mammal eating kind, lol.
