Just Wishing All My Readers A Merry Christmas

I just simply wanted to say thank you to all my readers and Merry Christmas !!!!!

Childrens Books For Christmas

  When we were young we used to sit and listen to our parents read us a story. It was always one of those special times in our lives growing up. Then there were the times when you would be in school and listening to the teacher read a story to the class. It was always nice especially at Christmas time. I guess the holidays just always made it seem so special. Now as a parent I loved sitting down with my kids and reading a story to them. There were also the times when they had to read something for school. Just sitting there with one of them and helping them to read a story of some kind. It was one of the greatest feelings in the world and I will never forget it. Now as I get older I am looking forward to sitting down with my Grandchildren and maybe I will get to read a Christmas story to them. These are the moments in our lives that we should always hang on to. Remember that what you do with your children you will see as they grow up and become adults. So Take the time and sit down and read a wonderful story to them now while you have the time.
  There are so many awesome books to choose from sometimes it can be a pretty daunting task. Maybe you could just ask your children what kind of stories they would like to read. Maybe just pay attention to what they are watching on television and that will help you pick out a good book to read. So have some fun and check out the bookstore below the posts and find a good book to read today.
  Thank You for reading and happy holidays.

End Times Prophecy From A Cathoilc Perspective

Woman of the Apocalypse

The world seems to be changing rapidly. There are signs in the heavens and on earth happening all the time. There are wars and rumors of wars. It almost seems like the world is going crazy with everything that is going on. I get the feeling that the end is getting closer and closer with all the strange and scary events that keep happening. So what is going on and what do people in the Catholic Church. Well my advise is buy some books on Catholic Prophecy and learn what Catholics believe.  Do not read books written by non Catholics to determine what the Catholic Church believes.
  There are many different views out there on the End Times. The rapture seems to be one of the hottest topics among all different religions. Everyone seems to have a different views as to when exactly the rapture will occur. Some believe it will happen beginning of the end times, some in the middle and some at the end. No matter which way it actually happens I will be looking forward to it. Some people believe our current Pope is the final Pope. There are others that believe the current pope is the antichrist. I have heard some individuals say that the current pope is not the antichrist, because he has not fulfilled the prophecies that must take place. Then you other individuals saying they will destroy the Catholic Church. To me it sure does look like the end is drawing very near and Jesus may be here very soon.
  There are many different prophecies in the Catholic Church. Some are very well known such as the prophecies of Fatima for Mary the Blessed Mother of Jesus. She had said that this would be her final message to the world. There would be good things and not so good things that will happen. Well whatever will happen we will just have to keep watching and never stop. The other signs of the end times seems to be the strange weather we keep seeing. It seems that some things have always been happening, but not at the rate we are seeing these things happen.  All I keep seeing are all the earthquake swarms that keep happening all over the world. I have just heard that another volcano had erupted. There are floods, typhoons, hurricanes and other terrible weather events happening all over and in places where they don't usually happen. So again my advise is to build up your personal library on the the of the end times and prophecy from a Catholic perspective.

  Thank You for reading.

The Bible Is The Most Popular Book Of All Time

  You know I can remember reading on the internet a few years ago about the most popular book of all time. I found that the Bible is the most popular book of all time . I know for myself I have quite a few different bibles. I have some Catholic Bibles as well as some Protestant bibles. Basically they are pretty much the same except there are some books in the Catholic that are not in the Protestant Bible. Either way they can be the most interesting reading you will ever do. I know there are many times when I just sit down and start reading. I seem to find something new every time and it always has something to do with my life.
  The bible even made the best selling book in Guinness World Records. It was found that about 2.5 billion copies were sold. That is an unbelievable number, so it is one amazing book. Now you can buy a bible with some beautiful pictures in it. There are bibles that have all kinds of information that are for bible study. They may have a bible dictionary so you can understand various topics in the bible. Sometimes you will find references to key in to other books in the bible. Some bibles are written to make it easier for someone to read and understand. You can even find bibles for children to read.
  Some bibles can be more expensive than others at Amazon for example. You can go on Ebay and you can find new bibles as well as old bibles. There are bibles that are a cheap book in a paper back cover. Then if you want to pay more you can go for a leather type binding. It all depends on how much you can afford to pay. I would say that the leather bindings may last longer. Yes a bible can make an excellent gift for someone at Christmas. So check out Ebay for some special Deals on Bibles for that special gift this Holiday Season.

Are You Looking For Cheap Books About Religious Topics

  You can go to any book store and you can search for books on various religious topics. Today's hot topics are obviously on the subject of the end of the world or end times. The only issue is that you will find that different religions have different views on the same topic. The only advice I can give you is pray about it and you will have an answer somehow. I can remember many times when I did not know which way to go ,I would just sit down and pray and ask what path to take . Then one day I was in a christian book store and my said hey look at these books. I was not even looking for the book she found. I was looking for different bibles. What I did find was the answer to my prayers. The book helped me and I was able to learn about the other persons religion. I was then able to answer his questions, which I hope helped him on his path.

Strange World Events And Strange Phenomena In The World Today

  There are a lot of strange events and strange phenomenons going on in the world today. We are seeing these events happening before our very eyes. These strange events may be pointing to the end of the world and the returning of Jesus Christ. In any event they do seem to be indicating that we are definitely living in the end times. There are plenty of books available for anyone wanting to learn more about what we are seeing. There are many different theories about what these events actually mean.
  There are all kinds of strange things happening in the skies and heavens. Could these be the signs and wonders that Jesus talked about in the bible about the end of the world. I my self do not no for sure, but it is very interesting to watch unfold. Every time I turn on the television or look on the internet there is something else happening. It may be some kind of sickness or disease that is running wild. Sometime is seems as though someone has a hand in all the lawlessness that is going on.
  There is also a rise in the strange phenomena that we are seeing. We are hearing more and more about Angels, Ghosts and Demons. There seems to be an increase in the number of ghosts and spirits that are making themselves known. Of course it may be that we have more sophisticated equipment to see or hear the spirits. Another popular item are all the Bigfoot sightings. People all over the world are reporting some kind of a Bigfoot creature. There are also strange creatures showing up in all the oceans and lake around the world. What about all the different Alien sightings.
  There are various signs in the heavens like the blood moons. The weather also seems to be going crazy. There are unbelievable huge storms battering us all over the planet. I also hear about all the different swarms of earthquakes that are happening all over the world. If these are all signs and wonders pointing to the return of Jesus Christ what are we supposed to do. Well I believe we should just be keeping watch. If you are interested in any of these subjects check out the bookstore below the posts.
  Thank You for reading and remember Christmas is only a few weeks away.     

Have You Ever Thought Of Writing An EBook

  I have never myself thought of writing an EBook . Recently a friend of mine sent my family an invitation to an ebook that his wife wrote. Maybe I may look into writing some short ebooks. I have looked around the internet and there are numerous websites with tutorials and courses on how to write an ebook or how to get started. I would look for books on Amazon, Ebay and at your local bookstore such as Barnes and Noble.
  Just remember that you can write short eBooks and sell them for a small amount of money on your blog. If you want to write a longer more involved eBook it will take some time to write. Unless you are one of those people that can just write anything off the top of their head. If you do see a book somewhere I would check out any reviews on the book in question. I would say the bigger the book the higher the price should be. I would not make it an outrages price, because they may scare people away.
  Also make sure your eBook is about something you love. That way you will write it in a way that people will know it was important to you. Write about something you have some good experience in. I would also try and put some humor in what you write. Nobody wants to read something that makes you bored. It you have a writers block just walk away from it for awhile and then go back to it. We all have times when we have to stop and take a break. You may see something somewhere and it just triggers a thought. Then you can start writing again.
  Here are some links to some websites on writing ebooks, http://www.moneycrashers.com/write-publish-ebook/ and http://www.wikihow.com/Write-Your-First-eBook . Here is a link to some free ebook software for creating ebooks http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_E-book_software . There are numerous websites with information on writing ebooks. Just be careful if they try to sell you something or want your approval to place some program om your computer. There are alot of malicious programs out there. Always check for any reviews on the software in question.
  Thank You for reading and all comments are welcome. 

Favorite Books For The Young And Old

  What are the favorite books with people today one may ask. Well in my day it was Grimm's Fairy Tales or Aesop's Fairy Tales. In fact I can remember watching those cartoons every Saturday or Sunday morning. Yes getting up early, eating my toast and watching those funny cartoons. I remember the Grimm's Fairy Tales from a book that my Aunt had. I seem to remember sleeping over with my cousins and maybe my Aunt reading those stories to us. If I remember right there were little cut out characters that were elves at the top of the wall in my cousins room. That really goes back a long way.
  So at the present day what books are really popular. Well I think most everyone might know the answer. Yes today it seems to be the Harry Potter books. It all started with the Harry Potter movie and has just kept going. Every time I turn on the television all I see is Harry Potter. They are the kind of books that children love to read, because it takes them with their imagination into another world. I know when I have watched the movies I get somewhat captivated by them and want to watch more. All in all I would have to say these are just well written stores that will be told for generations to come. It's like watching Scrooge every Christmas, where it has become a tradition with me.
  Another one of the newest popular movies that have come out and is in a book is the Hunger Games. It is becoming another popular book and I am sure there will be a series of them. They have already come out with two movies. The Chronicles Of Narnia is another popular title in science fiction and fantasy. It is yet another book that will take the reader into another world and get you to expand your imagination. There are so many books in this category you will just have to search for yourself and decide which one makes you feel happy.
  Thank You for reading and have a nice day. 

How Do I Repair My Computer Or Upgrade It

  Everyone who owns a computer should know how to do general repairs. You should also know how to upgrade your own computer or at least know what to ask for if you take it to a computer service center. My advise to anyone is if you are not comfortable with changing components in your computer then by all means take it to a professional computer service shop. I would just suggest that before you take it anywhere check on the internet for good and bad reviews on the service center you may have found. You are the buyer and you should always protect yourself.
  Okay back to the subject at hand. There are plenty of excellent books available through either Amazon.com and Ebay. You can find books on Troubleshooting Desktops and Laptop Computers. Generally these books also cover Repairing Desktops and Laptop Computers as well. As I looked through the lists of books I noticed that the reviews all looked very good for the most part. I would also recommend finding books on upgrading your computer. You can go to the manufacturer of you computer such as Dell, look up by the service tag number on the back or side of the computer and insert it in the proper space at Dell Support. You can look up the specifications on your particular model desktop or laptop. Other manufacturers have the same procedure, but may go by the serial number.
  Troubleshooting Desktop and Laptops are pretty much the same routine. The only difference it that taking a laptop apart can be very tricky due to all the screws involved and plastic catches that can be brittle due to age. There are some books available on taking laptop computers apart. I would also suggest looking on youtube, because there are videos on how to take a particular brand and model apart. It's always very important to get a visual procedure on what to to. I also use this when I am working on Electronic Components such as a Television, Stereo, Cb Radio or Ham Radio.
  Along with Troubleshooting, Repairing and Upgrading Computers come the building of primarily Desktop Computers. With Laptop Computers there is very little to upgrade. Most Laptop Upgrades consist of upgrading Memory, Hard Drive, Maybe a Microprocessor and a Video Card if the Laptop has a separate video card . You usually see video cards in higher end laptops or in Gaming Laptops. Desktop Computers can have almost anything upgraded from a power supply, memory, processor, hard drive, video card, sound card, dvd burner, blueray player, motherboard, card reader and even the computer case itself. It should be noted that most upgrades can be done with respect to what the motherboard can handle.
  I would use the amazon store below the posts to search for whatever book or books you are looking for. Usually there is an Ebay search off to the right of the posts. Otherwise I would search online or at your local bookstore. Remember Christmas is right around the corner.
  Thank You For Reading and all comments are welcome.  

Books For Ham Radio

   I am a Ham Radio Operator with my General License. The one thing I have found is there are books associated with Ham Radio for all different kinds of subjects. There are many books on building various antennas such as Moxon Antennas, Yagi Antennas, Quad Antennas and many more. One of the easiest to build and does a very good job is the wire Dipole Antenna. So if you are in the Ham Radio Hobby and you like building your own antennas buy some books on them. There are also plenty of Ham Radio Websites out there with tons of information on building antennas. Here are a couple of links to some good websites for building Ham Antennas http://www.hamuniverse.com/antennas.html and http://www.ve3sqb.com/ .
  Another part of the Ham Radio Hobby is obtaining your various Ham Radio Licenses. Yes there various Ham Radio Websites where you can study the material and take practice tests before you go and take the actual test. I did that with my Technician License and then for my General License. I also had some old books from Radio Shack that were based on Gordon Wests books. My advise is to buy the different books for reading, learning and studying for the Ham Radio License you are going to get. Just remember they go in this order Technician, General and Extra. You can buy just the study book or an audio cd with the course and I believe it has a cd that you can install on your computer to practice taking the tests. There are other books available for studying as well such as the ARRL books, which are very good as well as many more.
  There are plenty of other books in Ham Radio such as Shortwave Radio Listening, Log Books for keeping information on your contacts, ARRL Manuals with all kinds of information. There are books on learning about Ham Radio and how it got started. You can also find technical books on repairing your Ham Radio Equipment and Troubleshooting it when something goes wrong. You can also find books on learning how to speak on Ham Radio and what the different kinds of Jargon and Q-Codes mean. One thing I would recommend is buying one of the books on learning all the rules and regulations of Ham Radio from the FCC.
  Well That's all for now and Remember CHRISTMAS IS GETTING CLOSER.
  Thank You for reading from Dan KC2YTI 73s.
