Here's what's new on the Cybersalt Site each day.

Sharing is Grrrreat!!Sunday greetings everyone!

I visited my friend's farm, yesterday, to fix one of his computers. After all the bits were once again "biting" and the bytes were once again "byting," we spent some time outside in his yard catching up on things. While we talked I enjoyed the chickens, dogs, and sheep which were milling about after following him down the hill from the barn. They were totally at peace around him.

Brian doesn't usually have sheep on his farm so after a while I figured it was a good time to get closer to them and check them out. However, after taking one little step towards them it was clear they weren't as fascinated with me as I was with them and they moved away - and at a good pace I might add.

Although I was disappointed to not be able to get closer, I certainly wasn't hurt or mad because they spend much more time with Brian and know him. Also, one of the many things I learned in my 28 years of pastoring local churches is that at any time sheep will just move on because I took a little step they didn't like. So this wasn't my first rodeo (if you catch my drift.)

Of course, the irony is that it is Brian who is going to kill them one by one and feed them to his family. Maybe I will ask Brian to let me know when he's going to kill the next one so I can be there and when the bellwether moment of clarity comes I can say, "How do you like me now?!!"

Like I said, lol, this wasn't my first rodeo.

Today's video share features two different creatures of timidity: a deer and a harpist.

Oh look, Chicken Thursday!

Merlyn the Goat

Yes, I know that's a goat, lol.

Remember last week when I shared a dash cam photo from Cybersaltine Raduoos? After emailing him to make sure he had seen it in the mailing, he replied and included this picture.

My comment back was, "Lol, thanks for the picture of Satan's goat!"

He responded with the story behind the picture and I enjoyed it so much I though you would too:

When I was a meter-reader for the power company, the best part of my job was dealing with dogs. But this particular meter was inside of a pen with a dozen goats. When I would enter, they would all run to the opposite side and stare at me. Merlyn kept coming closer and after two years, would come all the way up to me and want to be scratched between the horns. The other goats would stay back, yelling; “Are you crazy? Get away from that human!” But Merlyn didn’t listen.

Sharing is Grrrreat!!Sunday greetings everyone!

A big shout out to Barb L., who lives a bit south of where I grew up in Ontario. She asked how to share newsletter items on Facebook. Most of us were told as children that sharing is good, but I think sharing Cybersalt items is "grrrreat!" (I hope Tony the Tiger agrees!) But what wasn't great about her asking was the realization I didn't have any tool on the site to make sharing easy.

So I added one!

So Barb, and others, if you want to share an item from the newsletter, simply click or tap on that item's title, wait for it's corresponding web page to open, and then use the Facebook share button (or one of the other provided social media buttons) to share it along.

As I said a few days ago to the young receptionist at my chiropractor's office, "You got it Pontiac!" (She had no idea what I was referring to."

Today's video share is something new I learned of this past week: drone light shows. If you follow me on my personal Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/cybersalt), a few days ago you saw the drone light show I shared from New Year's Eve in Scotland. This video is of a drone light show in Russia.

Oh look, Chicken Thursday!

Chicken Christmas Tree Topper

Yes, I know those are mountain sheep.

Back in November, I shared with you a dash cam picture from my travels during a business trip. That prompted Cybersaltine Raduoos to share this great one from his dash cam. He says it's from near his house in Central Washington. 

From this picture we can see he is driving a Mercedes, but there sure are a lot of Rams to dodge on the road too. In all I can count 16 sheep in this picture - at least that is what I reached before falling asleep.

As for other news, I did have something I thought was totally hilarious that I was going to share here but I ran it past Grandma Cybersalt who ranked it an "Ohhhhh, I don't know honey."

So literally, that's enough said!

december calendar 2020Sunday greetings everyone and Happy New Year!

I am happy to report that I did finally catch up on my "throw it in the box for later" box (Grandma Cybersalt now has it for taking things to charity), manage every email I received in 2020, and have a clear desk before the end of the year. I took this picture of my work area on January 1st, all ready to keep on keeping up and catching up on more now that the clutter isn't sucking the motivation out of my mind.

Now that the new year is here I've started doing something I did many years ago: skipping rope. Of course I'm doing so in response to my high cholesterol results.

Wow, am I ever out of shape! Last night I did my jumping just before getting ready for bed, however after only 74 jumps I ended up having to rest before I could do so. Tonight I am getting ready for bed first and then I'll exercise. In England I think this is called skipping after the loo!

Today's video share is a performance of that familiar New Year's tune, "Auld Land Syne." It's sung by a group I have been really enjoying listening to online: The Choral Scholars of University College of Dublin.
