Just posted at ToBeFree: ToBeFree Has 500,000 Freedom Hits!

As of right now,
ToBeFree has 1/2 million hits.

Thanks, everyone!

I wish I could be more excited.
I’ve tried really hard to show what is really going on
in over 3,500 posts, so far,
but America is still going down.

However, there is a bright side,
and this is my main mission.

I expect a major spiritual revival,
the Third Great Awakening
to happen probably next year.

This will be a really big deal,
and is what my other site,
is mostly about.

This is our only hope, right now —
other than slowing down Satan’s one-world government scheme
which is coming like a freight train.

But this is a huge hope!
When people are finally ONE with each other
and finally truly in Christ,
“then the world will know,”
Jesus said in John 17.

I can’t wait.
This will be a great day!

Then, whatever happens will be tough,
but it will be like water running off a duck’s back
for those who are truly in Christ
even martyrdom
when we’re really filled with the Spirit.

“For as the sufferings of Christ abound to us,
even so our comfort also abounds through Christ” (2 Cor. 1).

Incidentally and importantly, the concept,
“In Christ” is clearly described by Paul in Romans 8:1b,
but not in Rupert Murdoch’s NIV –
New Illuminati Version

or many of the other new perVersions
(I’m not exaggerating. Bad doctrine
from bad translations has destroyed America!).

I recommend the NKJV or the WEB (World English Bible),
a royalty free, Textus Receptus based translation.

Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures —
Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God?
which has been online for 3 years;
it’s #1 if you type in “who goes to heaven” in Google;
and no one can refute it,
even though I’m offering $6,000 to anyone who can.

This truth is the biggest key to the revival happening really soon.

Let us be ONE in Christ!


Power to the peaceful!

Why the total eclipse of the moon was red

Here it is, Rich.

From: Yahoo News

Amazing Spectacle: Total Lunar Eclipse Monday Night

For a few hours on the night of Dec. 20 to Dec. 21, the attention of tens of millions of people will be drawn skyward, where the mottled, coppery globe of our moon will hang completely immersed in the long, tapering cone of shadow cast out into space by our Earth. If the weather is clear, favorably placed skywatchers will have a view of one of nature’s most beautiful spectacles: a total eclipse of the moon. …

Color and brightness in question

During totality, although the moon will be entirely immersed in the Earth’s shadow, it likely will not disappear from sight.  Rather, it should appear to turn a coppery red color, a change caused by the Earth’s atmosphere bending or refracting sunlight into the shadow.

Since the Earth’s shadow is cone-shaped and extends out into space for about 844,000 miles (1,358,000 km), sunlight will be strained through a sort of “double sunset,” all around the rim of the Earth, into its shadow and then onto the moon.

However, because of the recent eruptions of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano last spring and the Merapi volcano in Indonesia in October, one and possibly even two clouds of ash and dust might be floating high above the Earth.  As a result, the moon may appear darker than usual during this eclipse; during totality, parts of the moon might even become black and invisible.

A careful description of the colors seen on the totally eclipsed moon and their changes is valuable.  The hues depend on the optical equipment used, usually appearing more vivid with the naked eye than in telescopes.  The French astronomer Andre-Louis Danjon introduced the following five-point scale of lunar luminosity (“L”) to classify eclipses:

L = 0:  Very dark eclipse, moon almost invisible, especially in mid-totality.

L = 1:  Dark eclipse, gray or brownish coloration, details distinguishable only with difficulty.

L = 2:   Deep red or rust-colored eclipse, with a very dark central part in the shadow, and outer edge of the umbra relatively bright.

L = 3:   Brick red eclipse, usually with a bright or yellow rim to the shadow.

L = 4: Very bright copper-red or orange eclipse, with a bluish very bright shadow rim.

Examine the moon at mid-totality and also near the beginning and end of totality to get an impression of both the inner and outer umbra.  In noting an L observation, state the time and optical means (naked eye, binoculars or telescope) that is used.  We invite readers to e-mail their Danjon estimate for this eclipse (along with any pictures they’d like to share) to cmoskowitz-at-SPACE.com.

At mid-totality, from rural locations far from city lights, the darkness of the sky is impressive.  Faint stars and the Milky Way will appear, and the surrounding landscape will take on a somber hue.  As totality ends, the eastern edge of the moon begins to emerge from the umbra, and the sequence of events repeats in reverse order until the spectacle is over.

Some did shoot the moon from Flattop’s base

In Last Night, this is where I was saying I should have shot my photos from:

In hindsight, I probably could have totally avoided the clouds
shooting instead near Flattop Mountain —
getting an interesting landscape shot up there as well,
but the forecast was clouds,
so I was surprised to even see the moon at all.

And I didn’t know this would be such a long event,
taking over 2 hours —
much different than a solar eclipse.

See ADN Photos Here

These are the clouds that rained on my party,
a little less than half way through the eclipse

I actually wrote a rant! 70% of Americans pay their municipalities to poison them and their children, lowering their IQ and diminishing their fighting spirit!

I normally don’t rant, but in Anchorage, Alaska we have this pristine water (from Eklutna Lake and well water) that we’re paying almost $100 per family to get. Yet they dump this toxic waste chemical into it which has been proven many years ago to not only dumb us down, but causes many other health problems as well.

And the only way to get fluoride out is to remove all of the other beneficial minerals as well.

Our leaders don’t seem to care; though, they know about it.

There is basically a local media blackout on the subject, which I’ve discussed before. Compare the Anchorage Daily News fluoride articles to those in Juneau’s Empire Builder newspapers, for example.

This is just so disgusting! How long will the people put up with actual poison (not even food grade fluoride)…

Here it is:

Fenske’s Rant | Fluoride in Water Linked to Lower IQ in Children — In addition to this study, and the 23 other IQ studies, there have been over 100 animal studies linking fluoride to brain damage

How many more hundreds of studies do we need?

I think I’m a pretty patient guy, but I’ve reported on this for over 10 years. I think it’s time to rant when we’re Americans won’t stand up for even our own mental health, being done to us in the name of “decreasing tooth decay,” which is mostly a sham, disproven decades ago.

And now they’re saying we don’t need very much Vitamin D, skewing the studies to do so, which I’ve also shown at ToBeFree — when a lack of vitamin D was probably our major tooth decay source!

It’s just disgusting. Come on everyone. We need to get this mind numbing, psych drug out of our water!

It’s literally part of what is taking the fight out of people so we lay down and put up with even the naked body scanners — which won’t just be in airports, by the way!

And we ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

The Devil is playing us like a fiddle.

Last Night

12/20/10 • 10:21 PM

Mom took this shot of me shooting the photos below —
her idea.

She did a great job hand-holding the 1.3 second exposure,
which was my fault.
I handed her the LX5, only conservatively increasing the ISO,
which is my style.
But I should have opened the aperture all the way up too,
utilizing its f/2.0 capability.

[For really observant camera buffs,
I’m not using the tripod collar because I loaned this lens to a friend
who doesn’t have a RRS quick release mount,
and I hadn’t screwed back on the adapter.

It wasn’t necessary, though.
Perhaps it was the extreme angle.
The 5D2 was rock steady
even with the extenders.]

About 15 minutes into the lunar eclipse

12/20/10 • 10:41 PM

About an hour into the eclipse,
here it is nearly full.

We’re looking at the moon almost entirely shadowed by the Earth!

I had thought that the red color was mostly from the streetlight-lit clouds that rolled in,
but Rich commented below on how this is how it appeared even cloudless,
which I see is the case in these photos.

Perhaps even though the moon wasn’t throwing much light,
it was still reddening the clouds, along with the city’s light pollution,
which is generally more yellow/orange than red.

The clouds are a main reason for this photo’s lack of sharpness.

But this is also a much longer exposure,
as the moon is much darker,
so the movement of the moon blurs the photo even more.

I don’t have a motorized tracker gizmo
as Alaska isn’t a great place to view celestial bodies in the heavens,
being too low in elevation, among other things.

In hindsight, I probably could have totally avoided the clouds
shooting instead near Flattop Mountain —
getting an interesting landscape shot up there as well,
but the forecast was clouds,
so I was surprised to even see the moon at all.

And I didn’t know this would be such a long event,
taking over 2 hours —
much different than a solar eclipse.

The Lab II — The Photo Buddha


3 of the 4 rows of our digital darkroom/classroom
at Brooks Institute, Santa Barbara, studying
The Fine Art of Digital Printing

My workstation was at the far left of the second row.

I decided to post another lab photo to highlight Ming.
In the red shirt, he’s an amazing hands-on instructor,
reminding me very much of the Food Buddha,
if you’ve seen him on TV.

They both have a quick mind, incredible energy,
are smart and so friendly!

This is a 1.3 second photo (hand-held LX5),
so there is some serious blurring going on.

If you look carefully,
you can see a shoe and a leg on the bottom-right,
where someone was standing.

The even closer blur is instructor
John Paul Caponigro walking by.

In Acts, reading on my own
how full of joy Paul and Silas handled their imprisonment,
it was in this book I was convinced Christianity is the true religion.

And by reading this book in high school
was when I dedicated my life to Him.

Though I loved the NIV’s readability,
and I discovered Life through it,
I don’t really consider the NIV a real Bible anymore.

It’s dangerous, and is misleading many
because of the numerous texts they changed and/or deleted,
like Romans 8:1b!

Thankfully, they didn’t change Hebrews 10:26-39
which I found as a senior,
trying to see if eternal security was valid or not.

“Hebrews 10:26” was my theme song during my last year in high school,
and Hebrews 10:26-39 is one of the cornerstones in my
Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way |
Who are the Children of God?
article that has been posted for almost a year.

But I couldn’t have written it
had I used Rupert Murdoch’s NIV.

I’m offering $6,000 to anyone who can refute it.
And no one can.

This single doctrine may be the key to us
seeing the 3rd Great Awakening happen before our eyes
here in Anchorage.

I love this book because of how it affected my life.
but it’s really diabolical,
and has destroyed the lives of many.

I recommend reading Textus Receptus based translations
like the NKJV or the Word English Bible,
which is what I use mostly online,
because it’s royalty free,
unlike the NKJV.

: )


Is Murdoch’s NIV the ‘N’ew ‘I’lluminati ‘V’ersion? Has the Word of God Been Corrupted to Bring US Into the New World Order?

And this is a great NKJV audio Bible:

Richard Dreyfuss (plays Moses in THE WORD OF PROMISE AUDIO BIBLE) interviewed by Tavis: The dread he feels about America’s future, one man owns half of the news media, “If you’re against the policy, you’re against the troops,” DARKness and LIGHTkeepers!

The King James (KJV) is also accurate, but it’s unnecessarily hard to read, now that we have faithful modern versions. I have only found a few problematic inaccuracies in the NKJV. The World English Bible is also excellent.

Photographer Rodney Lough, Jr. Interview

I just had the delight of watching Fine Art Photography Weekly’s interview with 8 x 10 format, fine art photographer, Rodney Lough, Jr, whose galleries I discussed here: The Most Beautiful Fine Art Gallery in the World?

I took some notes from this interview.

At about minute 19, Rodney discusses one of his goals, which is somewhat similar to mine.

For me, ultimately, I would like to help people break free from the all-encompassing electronics the sheetrock walls and into the awareness that God is the source of all beauty. We can trust Him! There is Hope!

Rodney definitely doesn’t go quite that far. His stated goal is much more subtle, even calling the Creator, “Mother Nature” (Rodney is a Mormon). He talks about trying to help people get beyond the ‘concrete’ and experience the ‘grass’ — beautifully lit, I might add — from what I’ve read of his philosphy elsewhere.

I also like what he says about his style, which he sums up with this statement:

“I walk around and I just keep my eyes open, and then something goes ‘HAAAAAA! That’s amazing!’ And it just stops me dead in my tracks.

I don’t know why I have that talent. I can’t say. I think we’re all given different gifts. Some people make a great apple pie. Some people are great gardeners, and I walk around in the woods going ‘HAAAAAA! That’s amazing!'”

And here is Rodney Lough, Jr. on photographers telling the truth:

“I think when you die, there’s an up-escalator and a down-escalator. I’d really like to be on the up-escalator.

So lying about something like “Oh, that moon was there in front of that big tree.” …

Some tech info for those so inclined:

He gets 1.6-1.8 GB scans from his drumscanned 8 x 10 inch positives.

He would like to print larger, but he’s limited by paper size. He prints with LightJet on Fuji crystal archive flex, which limits him to print no bigger than 50 inches by 10 feet.

His only filter is a graduated 2-stop neutral density.

Vitamin D in Anchorage

[Originally posted on 12/4. Updated on 12/11]

I just posted Vitamin D: Food & Nutrition Board Betrays Millions and Institute of Medicine Report on Vitamin D is Wrong, Wrong, Wrong at ToBeFree. Recommended vitamin D3 amounts are given there and Dr. Mercola: How Much Vitamin D?.

The lying, deceit and love of money is outrageous in the US. Dark forces really have taken over. But they don’t have to take over us!

Opt out! “I will not go through the naked body scanner!” All 65+ of my Naked Body Scanners posts at ToBeFree

And opt into vitamin D, the SUNSHINE vitamin!

The good doc working on Mom

Dr. Ellenburg sells Liqui-D3 vitamin D drops in his clinic in Anchorage: Dr. Ellenburg Center for Natural Medicine. You don’t need to be a patient, but call first, to make sure it’s in stock. I keep mine refrigerated. You won’t find a deal like this at a health food store, that I know of anyway.

A 1 oz. bottle was $22, the last time I bought one. It lasts a long time. I take 3 drops a day in winter, as I weigh over 200 pounds and this is what was recommended for me by Dr. Ellenburg. It’s good to see a N.D., not a M.D.. Naturopathic doctors study as many years as Big Pharma M.D.s, but they study natural medicine instead of drugs. M.D.s know almost nothing about nutrition, except that there is little money to be made there. “The love of money” really is a huge factor driving the massive medical disinformation that is part of what is destroying America.

Back to Liqui-D3, each drop is 2,000 iu.. This is a very inexpensive way to get what our bodies need, considering the true data and our total lack of Vitamin D giving rays right now. The sun isn’t high enough in the sky.

But the stats show that most people are deficient in the lower 48 too, especially in winter in the northern latitudes — and for those who simply don’t get enough sunshine elsewhere.

And wearing burkas don’t help either: Burkas Cause Major Vitamin D Deficiency & Hence Breast Cancer?

High quality vitamin D can also be purchased in health food stores or online, such as The Vitamin Shoppe. They’re currently offering Carlson Vitamin D (2000 iu., 120 caps) for $4.65.

Power to the peaceful!

In Appreciation of HEAT!


Freight floor sink icicle in our 2001-10 warehouse

I can show this now that we have great heat
having moved back to our old facility.

Some bid the freight floor so they wouldn’t have to freeze outside,
but maybe it’s worse freezing inside!

The contractor bought used, obsolete, foreign made heaters
for which some parts weren’t even available.

The love of money realized.

Compare compact camera sensors at DxOMark: Sensor data for Nikon P7000 just out

In continuing my discussion of the latest and greatest compact cameras, DxOMark has lab tests for all but the LX5. If you click here, you’ll see sensor data for the Nikon P7000, the Canon S95 and the Panasonic LX3 (LX5 data still isn’t out).

Nikon has always amazed me in how much they lag behind Canon in their compact Coolpix cameras, but they are catching up. I was kind of thrilled about this model because the lens reaches out so far, 200mm; though, wide-angle is more important to me than telephoto, so I went with the LX5.

On the starting page, the data for the Nikon looks like a let down. I had hoped for better, but when you look at all of the charts (clicking on the boxes above), that stats are not that much different than the Canon, and far above the LX3 (LX5 scores aren’t out yet and should do much better), so these are still very respectable results. But if you’re looking to get the most stunning color possible, Nikon is still not the way to go.

This Nikon is especially worth considering for those who really want to reach out and touch someone with their 28-200mm lens, 60 millimeters longer than the Canon G12. If you’d like to go wider, it also has a wide-angle adapter, but that’s another thing to carry around, and fiddle with if there isn’t much time to get a shot off — and it’s something like $200. The Nikon’s shot recovery time is slower, if that’s a factor for you.

If we punch in the Canon G12 instead of the LX3, its stats are really close to the S95, because I’m almost certain they use the same sensor. The main difference in image quality between the two Canons come from the different lenses. The G12’s much larger 28-140mm is probably the main reason some of the G12 shots look slightly better than the S95’s in the DPReview test I mentioned earlier.

it will be interesting to see how the LX5 compares once the data is out.
