The end of the world as we know it

Sounds bad I know but looking at the grounding of flights in the EU due to Eyjafjallajokull volcano on Iceland makes one realize that humanity has become dependent on technology for survival. Imagine what would happen if another few volcanoes decide to go active? This serves to remind us how powerless we are against nature. It also serves to remind me that no matter what, God is always in control and that no powers or principalities can come against him.
Maybe we need to re-evaluate both our techno-dependency and our relationship with God, the creator of the splendors of nature we are now witnessing in Iceland?
While getting some of the links for this I came across this funny poem about the recent travails at BoingBoing... By Jeff Skoll... E-Bay's first president... Sums it up thus...

This is an ode to the volcano
That sent our travel plans into the draino
I'm not really one to complaino
But this all hurts my little braino
Madrid, Casablanca, Amsterdam, Rejkavik on cruiseships
The trains will fail
All the escape routes that we planned
Are blocked by nature or by man
We heard the French trains may soon be striking
At this rate we'll all be biking
With our luck we'll all be struck by lightning!
This is all rather frightening
So better we all meet at TED
That is what I should have said
So thank you June and thank you all
Damn the volcano, let's have a ball

I be a tartan warrior of the Clan Campbell...

Reactions: 
with a wee dram 'o Wallace... Celebrating Tartan Day and my Scots Ancestors I am. The Campbell Tartan as also worn by the famous Black Watch regiment.
The Wallace tartan made famous by 3M and William aka Braveheart...
One day I hope to have a kilt in Campbell Tartan but at present the funds for 7 yards of it is beyond my pocket plus my Scots ancestry baulks at the though of such a form of aparrell that I will seldom wear.
So in the meantime I enjoy my odd bowl of oatmeal from time to time... Haggis is not on the top of the list either.

Nothing compares...

Reactions: 
to the love that was shown on this day.

"Once at
Golgotha, Jesus was stripped and nailed to the beam and hung between two convicted thieves. According to Mark's Gospel, he endured the torment for some six hours, from the third hour[Mk. 15:25] until his death at the ninth hour.[15:34-37] The soldiers affixed a sign above his head stating "King of the Jews" in three languages, divided his garments and cast lots for his seamless robe, and offered him wine mixed with gall to drink, before eventually piercing his side with a spear to be certain that he had died. The gospels mention a total of seven statements that Jesus made while he was being crucified, as well as several supernatural events that occurred. Following his death, his body was removed from the cross by Joseph of Arimathea and buried in a rock-hewn tomb, with Nicodemus assisting."

All I can do is fall on my knees with thanks.
"It is finished"

Any similarities are coincidental...

Reactions: 

EKG treadmill or the virtual Montain!

Being wired up for an EKG stress test. The fun comes in when those electrodes come off!

Do not do this at home!

Motorcycle stress test... aka Dyno test.
But the principle remains the same... performance testing of machines done with electronic data gathering... Yes I had a "Dyno Test" today and considering the wear and tear my "Engine" has had the doc was quite happy, seems like I will still be around for a while! Don't Worry, Be happy!
