The chief danger that confronts the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost,
Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration,
politics without God, heaven without hell.
“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.”
― William Saroyan
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery. -- Winston Churchill
Ignorance is not an opinion, liberals
I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. C. S. Lewis
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14

TONGA…taken yesterday from my stepdaughter’s drone camera….(now go comment on the post below!)

What fun! Where was it taken, Z
TONGA……..OF COURSE. DUH! ;o)
Damn, that’s awesome!
And we BOTH went aaahh when we saw it. Our mutual friend Margaret should see this. 🙂
You guys just wouldn’t believe the gorgeous pix she emails me…..I should share more of them. I’d only be able to spend a week on an island with absolutely no stimulus but gorgeousness, but she loves it…plus, she’s busy because friends visit their boat so she has to make sure there’s food,etc., for everyone all the time. It’s a busier life than you’d think when stores don’t have bread so you have to MAKE it if you can find flour, etc., , and veggies sometimes aren’t there, so you’re glad you bottled some from the last island.
Looks beautiful Z, but I couldn’t live like that for an extended period. Especially in a Shark salad bar boat.
Absolutely beautiful, Z. Of course, there’s much more to Tonga than just sand and water. I would be even more interested in the drone. If a consumer drone can fly that high…
Bob, a few months aga or more, a couple guys at work were complaining that their consumer version Phantom drone software update restricted them to 1600 feet. They could go much higher previously.
Great pic…shows the isolation and remoteness!
Kid – While the FAA may have levied some regulations, DJI is well aware that the Phantom series is a favorite of nefarious groups in the Middle East. I’d expect to see several revisions, restricting certain activities.
Bob, actually there isn’t that much more to do on these remote Tongan islands…but, as I said, my stepdaughter keeps really busy.
As I said, there’s no way I could last a week…but I’ve felt that before I got on a Greek Island I never wanted to leave once I got there, too!
CI, Well, yea for good reason. Imagine being the pilot caretaker for a few hundred souls and have to worry about some punks bringing down your aircraft becuase they want to take a 3000 foot selfie near an airport. Or even 1600 for that matter.
Drones will be a huge danger….to aircraft and other things…I can’t imagine how they can be used without causing horrible problems.
Obviously, for vacation shots on a deserted island, it’s no problem, and she tells me you can really guide them well, but the difficulties in cities will be immense.
My stepdaughter and her husband have a serious drone that they use responsibly. Their rancher friend down the road grumps about people dumping old sofas at the ‘end of the line’ and hated drones …. until they showed him how to use one to keep eyes on trespassers and his cattle.
Saves him lots of time. That’s pretty much what I consider legit uses. I’ve found a pooped out one in our yard, and don’t appreciate having them buzz up and down the street. They are the PERFECT tool for casing your property. How do you know what’s legit?
The capabilities of drones are impressive as I hear workmates talk about them I don’t have one. no good looking women here to spy on.
Phantom 4 features – http://www.drone-world.com/dji-phantom-4-specs/
Here are some ofd the things they do with them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8r-IxaiRbo
The most interesting thing I’ve seen filmed with a drone.
Baysider, yes, in rural areas, they can be a big help, but elsewhere? Trouble! And they absolutely CAN just be casing your place…
Kid! That fireworks drone is fabulous! Thanks for posting it
