Back to the Podcast

It all fell apart...

The best laid plans tend to do that. In my case, I was at my whit’s end trying to finish the Masters in Divinity program and then got started immediately into a doctoral program while my wife’s office was floundering and I found myself working for her, working for my daughter, working for myself… and not for God.

And that really was the problem.

When I said “God first, family second, self last,” I meant every word, yet I found myself putting family first to help my wife and daughter through this last two years of chaos and self second out of defense of everything I had started, but starting this year, with my wife’s office hitting a wall and my daughter acting out, my wife and I looked at each other and had to ask…

Where is God in all of this?

And that was the right question to ask. It was not that God left us. We had left God. He was our excuse, not our Lord, and that was wrong. But that’s a sermon for later.

Instead, I am here to announce that podcasting will begin again starting in February and with my wife’s agreement that it needs to be done.

Every month will have, at a minimum, one sermon, one podcast on family life, and one podcast on family fun, including my take on what’s going on with Star Citizen and other games and systems I have been supporting all this time, starting with the first sermon, Trusting in God, coming the first week of February.

You’ll also get to see me. Yes, I’ll be using my phone to take video of myself recording the podcastsand, sometime later in 2020, I will be livestreaming them as well.

Satan caught us with our pants down. It may happen again. But for now, it’s time to dust ourselves off, grab up the Bible, and begin again. God first, family second, self last.

Let’s get to work.

Under Construction?

Under Construction?

More like under “reconstruction.” Let me explain…
Up until about two or three months ago, all of the sites I work on for friends and family were starting to bog down on the legacy GoDaddy server, never moved to the newer servers. That all came to a head when WordPress started erroring due to old legacy software on the server. We had no choice but to move the websites. That is when the problems started. The same error I was getting on the old server for Longhaul duplicated on the new server and got worse, making it so I couldn’t even add pages or posts or update pages or posts. I have just spent a good part of the last quarter year trying to get this to work right again, and I am hoping this posts even as I type it.
At the same time, due to illness and school and keeping up with tech support for the family, I have fallen further and further behind on podcasting. Over a year, in fact. And the coffee shop I started using for “Bear Citizen” events closed, leaving me with no venue for that as well. I have been “up in the air” on what to do with such things. Therefore, starting this Summer (no date set), I will be doing a bit of shuffling. First, I am finishing the voiceover work for the Zane Grey novel set. I know, “FINALLY!” Second, since I have been using Lightstock a lot in this business, I am going to start doing side work in drone photography and videography to attempt to bring in more money so I’m not scrambling for side work. Last but not least, I will be starting up podcasting again. Wish me luck.
Another 2018 Update…

Another 2018 Update…

Tentative Reboot: December 2018

Well, folks, I thought I’d drop a line. 2018 has been a seriously messed up year. Started with a huge contract that I’m still not done with, ailments galore, my best bud then having a heart attack and me taking over for him, just one thing after another. I am now on my last class and will finish at the end of November, so I am looking forward to the free time to finish the voiceover contract and start podcasting back up for 2019.

In the meantime, looking for venues for teaching kids about what’s going on in NASA and space exploration in general, so if you have ideas in the Denver Metro area, let me know. Sorry for being out of the Star Citizen loop and all. I will catch up as soon as I get a chance to catch a breath. Meanwhile, stay safe, love your families, and I’ll see ya on down the other side.

What about the Pioneer?

Longhaul's Take on the Pioneer Debate

I started this one two weeks ago, but then got stalled out before I could finish adding video to it. Sorry for the delay in getting this out, but this is about my personal take on the Consolidated Outland’s Pioneer construction ship. It is not a popular opinion. But take a look and decide for yourself if my point is valid.

PS: Going to be attempting to learn Adobe Premier Pro and Adobe Audition December 20-January 3 (my school’s break time) and would like suggestions on books to learn from. Please comment below.

PSS: Still waiting on both a specialist with an opening in schedule and Medicaid to sign off on knee surgery. Prayers absolutely welcome and thank you for your support.

PSSS: I… Nevermind… I forgot.
