Oh look, Chicken Thursday! 

Nicky Nicky Nine DoorsI was having one of the best sleeps I have had in a while last night when I was awoken at 1:55am by the front doorbell being rung three times in quick succession. I slowly got out of bed and looked outside to see if there was a police car in the driveway delivering some bad news.

Instead I saw no one - that is until I checked our security camera and discovered someone had played "nicky nicky nine doors" on the front step of Cybersalt World Headquarters. Kid will be kids, though phone pranks were more my style back in the day!

Today's video share is the security footage of the contestant running away. I wish he/she had tripped and fallen on the turn, just to make it more fun, lol!

Sunday Greetings everyone and welcome to April.

Blind Girls Shoots Free-throwSpring has truly arrived at Cybersalt World Headquarters. I know so because this week I spotted a Grandma Cybersalt out mowing the lawn!

Our world is divided with so many people yelling at each other from their different ideologies, surrounded and reinforced by the shared opinions of others isolated in the same silos of thought. Today's video share is a great example of what can happen when one side shows love, kindness, and encouragement to other - even when the other is a sworn enemy!

Browser WarsThe end of March Break has brought a fun visit with a friend and his 2 kids for a couple of days - so that news will keep today's news brief.

That said, are you feeling really tired today? If so, it is probably because you are finishing a 31 day March today!

Today's video share is a fun look back at the browsers we have used in the past to view the internet. It sure brings back memories for me!

Sunday Greetings everyone.

Blind Girls Shoots Free-throwI meet with a business coach every Friday. Over time he has become a very good friend and now we often end up talking and sharing about much more than just business. This week I was telling him about a bunch of ongoing stretching and personal growth things going in my life right now when I heard myself say something that really inspired me: "Whatever God is doing, He is doing it."

We may not always understand things we are going through, but keep trusting in Jesus because He promised to never leave us or forsake us. Whatever He is doing, He'll get it done!

Today's video share is a great example of how sometimes being quiet is the best way to support someone!

funny concert momentsI'm off to the dentist today, which really won't be one of the highlights of my week. However, all things considered, it's not the worst cavity search one can be a part of!

Today's video share is a collection of funny moments at concerts. Well, 3 of the moments are funny and the 4th is sweet!

Sunday Greetings everyone.

Top Countries by Military SpendingIn the Cybersalt News last Sunday (which actually went out on Thursday) I mentioned I had been to the chiropractor to get a rib put back in place.  All together I have been 4 times with no relief, which is surprising because he is usually very successful at treating the aches I bring him.

I wasn't sure how I hurt myself. There are so many possibilities now that I have reached the age where I can hurt myself "sleeping wrong." But, a couple of days ago, while pondering going for a walk to see if that would help my back, I remembered I fell on a hill while taking a shortcut on the last walk I had taken. I slipped on some loose dirt coming down a hill in a construction site, fell backwards and slid for a bit on my back. Then it dawned on me that that's how I must have hurt my back and that I had probably bruised some ribs! Dr. Google tells me I should feel better in 4-6 weeks.

Thankfully, it mostly only hurts when I stand and I am still able to sleep fairly comfortably at night. Knowing the cause of the pain has made it somewhat more bearable. So has having an idea of the time frame for when I will be better. It's a reminder to me that when I am out and about, I must remember to take care of the slowly aging man who accompanies me everywhere, lol.

Today's video share is of a race that has a lot of competitors, but it is also a race that nobody can really win because it will never be over until the Prince of Peace rules them all.

Oh look, Chicken Thursday! OK, truth be told, I just realized that Sunday's mailing did not go out so I am reviving it for today!

How I faked being a billionaire so you could see NYC’s best views | Andi Schmied | TEDxViennaI've been to my Egyptian doctor (chiropractor) three times this past week to get a wayward rib taken care of. It has made me think of Adam's rib experience which resulted in him being blessed with a wife in order to correct the one thing that was not good in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 2:18.) But I have already been blessed with a wife, so my side ordeal will not end with such a huge net gain!

Speaking of ordeals, there is something else that has been bothering me this week: this whole deal with seizing the yachts of Russian Oligarchs. Let me first say I unequivocally support the seizing of those (and other) assets to either put pressure on Putin to end the war in Ukraine or to incentivize someone to gift him some poisoned underwear from the same store he got the pair he gave to Alexey Navalny.

I'm also all for selling these vessels and giving the proceeds towards caring for Ukrainians and rebuilding their country. What sticks in my craw is the question, "Who should even own a billion dollar yacht in this world of need anyway?" Instead of putting more money into these decadent ships, I think they should be sunk as artificial reefs and anyone who could have afforded to buy them should give that money (which they obviously have far too much of) to fixing some of the  problems facing mankind. We could call it the "Cure for Cancer Reef!"

I do feel somewhat hypocritical suggesting the above because I myself live a comfortable life that could be less comfortable in the service of those who have less than me. Such is also the case with many of you reading this. But what galls me about the whole yacht thing is what galled me weeks ago when I lined up the video for today's video share: the absolute indifference of the mega rich to the realities of the lives of everyday people.

It reminds me of Mr. Potter's chastisement of Harry Baily's helping of the poor in the movie It's a Wonderful Life. Potter, by far the richest man in town, saw charity to others as a way of creating "a discontented, lazy rabble instead of a thrifty working class." But as Bailey pointed out, those same people "do most of the working and paying and living and dying" in the community and was it "too much to have them work and pay and live and die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath?"

You will never look at the ultra rich, nor a big city skyline, the same way after watching "How I faked being a billionaire so you could see NYC’s best views."
