Chicken Thursday Jan 03Oh look, Chicken Thursday.

I'm a little unsettled, this chicken Thursday. After giving chickens their own special day for years, I just heard that "Birds Aren't Real!"

You can help me through this difficult time by clicking on the following link, watching the video it points to, and letting me know what you think:

Birds Aren't Real?

AntarcticaSunday greetings everyone!

Last Wednesday I preached this morning.

No I have not been drinking.

My son-in-law pastors at Agincourt Baptist Church in Toronto and invited me to preach today. So I recorded a message last Wednesday for him to play today. I don't yet have the link to the service, but you can click here for their YouTube channel.

Today's video share is old news now, but media we get back from other planets continues to amaze and entertain me, so here is video from the recent rover landing on Mars. If the heavens declare the glory of God (which I believe they do) so does the ingenuity of man, created in God's image!

chicken thursday jan 31Oh look, Chicken Thursday.

A big shoutout to Cybersaltine, D. McCordic for sharing a hilarious video of a rooster who is highly dedicated to his work!

She shared the video with me through the Cybersalt FaceBook group (www.facebook.com/cybersaltsite) and I tracked it down on YouTube. I have added it to a new "Chicken Humor" category on the Cybersalt site.

While tracking the video down, I actually found a second video of a different rooster working just as hard. The fact that there are two lead me to guess that soon some of you will be emailing me and saying, "That's nothing new, our roosters do that too!"  If that is true, please film your roosters and send it to me so I can add to this collection.

AntarcticaSunday greetings everyone!

I often receive posts from persecuted Christians overseas (overseas from me, that is) regarding the most recent and terrible acts of violence carried out against their community. On one recent post, I was disappointed to see someone from a North American country commenting and basically asking for prayer because the same things were happening in their country. I commented back that it was not true but the commenter insisted that it was.

I really think it is important for Christians living in freedom to look into and learn what life is truly like for so many of their brothers and sisters around the world. Becoming better informed will not only help them to live more grateful lives, it will also help give them discernment when politicians pretend there is persecution in order to get their votes to try and stop it.

Look, I'm not saying life in North America is a Utopia for Jesus's followers, but thinking we have it as hard as those being oppressed, maimed, and killed for their faith puts us in the wrong mindset to be salt and light in our own countries. Many years ago I knew a man who was very passionate about a ministry of outreach he had to women who were trapped in the sex trade. However, he was such an obtuse, overbearing, rude, pain in the neck (those are not the actual adjectives I would use if you and I were sitting down over a coffee) that nobody wanted to support him. Of course, every time he was rejected by someone he just chalked it up to persecution.

I think something similar happens when Christians stop seeing themselves as free in Christ to reach out and love others and instead self-identify as oppressed and see others as enemies to be wary of and fight with hate. Their attitude and combative approach to discourse turns people off and puts them on the defensive, which makes it easier to view them as combative, which makes it easier to continue combat against them. It's a classic scenario of self-fulfilling prophesy - though no true prophet is behind it.

What got me onto this long train of thinking is my video share for today. It's a video about life as an urban refugee: a refugee who has fled for their lives to a different country, but instead of ending up in a refugee camp is living (and often hiding) in a city which is foreign to them.

They are one type of refugee that we try to help through the "Be a Billionaire Fundraiser":

Oh look, Chicken Thursday.

chicken thursday jan 31There is so much going on around Cybersalt World Headquarters that there really isn't much news to report!

OK, our new fireplace is not leaking natural gas anymore, so technically that is news. I am thankful to God it didn't lead to news!

AntarcticaSunday greetings everyone!

As you will see from this picture, we got some rare snow at Cybersalt World Headquarters this weekend. Living on the left coast of Canada means our winters are pretty mild and it doesn't snow very often, so when it does snow it's big news. Fortunately for me, Grandma Cybersalt likes to shovel snow!

Now, before some of you put out a hit out on me out of sympathy for Susan, I too got out there and shovelled our walkways and a bunch of the sidewalk in front of our house. I kind of enjoyed it too because I am still skipping rope everyday in my quest to be allowed to eat bacon again someday!

This week's video share is of a beautiful moment at a high school graduation. Watching it moved my heart and I hope it touches you in the same way today too!

Oh look, Chicken Thursday.

chicken thursday jan 31I am part of Refugee Sponsorship group in a village next to our city. It's actually a nice little village, but they would never allow me to move there because they already have an idiot.

We are rescuing a young Christian couple who had to flee their country after the husband, a reporter, covered a story on a serious crime that ended up getting the perpetrators arrested. The problem was the perps belonged to a group that is part of the dominant religion of the country and they didn't take to a Christian playing such a role. Actually, in that country they don't take to Christians having any role that affects them in any way.

I mention this because I have been working on the group's website where we have a silent auction underway and two of the most popular items being bid on are eggs and chickens - or is it chickens and eggs (I can never remember which comes first.) I chuckled when I noticed this because it was a reminder of the ridiculous corner of my mind that gets excited whenever there is something "chickeny" that I can write about on Chicken Thursdays.

Mission accomplished for another week!

Of course, most of you are too far away to place a bid on these eggs and chickens, but there is one silent auction item available that anyone anywhere can bid on. I have offered up a turnkey, startup website that is a great deal for any individual, church, organization or business that is overdue (it is 2021 after all) for a website, or a renewed website. You can see all the details at:

AntarcticaSunday greetings everyone!

I launched a new YouTube channel this week. Many of you know that I have been involved in the Joomla Community for many years. Joomla is a Content Management System (CMS) that I have built many websites with over the years, and will continue to do so.

But in recent years I have had a number of people approach me to help them with websites built in a different CMS, WordPress. WordPress is actually the most popular CMS in the world and since I don't want to have all my eggs in one basket I figured I should just knuckle down and learn it.

If you have a website built in WordPress, or have considered starting one, I invite you to subscribe to the CybersaltWP channel. There are only 3 videos there right now, but there will be a lot more soon as I build a new WordPress site step by step from scratch:

This week's video share shows some cool behaviour by one of my favourite types of animals - birds! If you ever hear a rumour that I like murmurs you can take it to heart that I do!
