Cool Vehicles for Enjoying the Snow and Ice

Enduring “Six Months” of Winter and Snow in Minnesota has led me to look for new ways to enjoy the snow. I find snow pictures refreshing and really fun to look at when it is 100 degrees with 100 percent humidity on a hot August day and sometimes I find them helpful when I am experiencing snow and ice driving during the frozen seasons of my life.

Fixed! View Adobe Acrobat PDF Thumbnails in Explorer on Windows 10 64 bit

After years of frustration with patches and add on programs Adobe finally fixed their Windows Explorer PDF Thumbnail view issue and I am delighted they did.

So now I am using the latest version of Adobe Acrobat DC on a Windows 10 64 bit computer. And just like Adobe’s support site says, “to enable thumbnail previews go to Preferences > General and then select Enable PDF thumbnail previews in Windows Explorer.”

I’m not sure why they didn’t fix this years ago, but now it works like you would expect. And I thought I’d share this info since I think there are millions of other frustrated people out there waiting for this good news!

Spotify Music with scrolling Lyrics

I used to have a huge collection of CDs and I would rip them to MP3 files so I could listen to them later which wasn’t a good use of my time. Two years ago I decided to simplify my life including giving almost all of my CDs away. I am a pastor that focuses on helping people live a W.E.L.L. life – that means  a life of Worship – Encouraging – Learning – Loving. Encouraging people to listen to good Christian music is a big part of my discipleship ministry. After I gave all my CDs away I subscribed to Spotify. I’ve tried Google music and Amazon music services but I still think Spotify is the best. Recently I’ve started using the Lyrics feature on my Windows version of Spotify and now I can see the words as they are sung and it has really increased the value of the music I am playing. I’m not sure if this is a new feature but I just noticed it this month. I mentioned it to some of my friends that use Spotify and they didn’t know that was possible. Try it with the right music and it may help you grow in your Christian faith.

What Apps and Resources are you using to be most effective in 2016?

There are a ton of apps, program and resources out there. It’s difficult to figure out what really works well. I am primarily writing this for my friends that ask me what resources I am using to accomplish my tasks and goals. I am church pastor and Christian man. This is what I find works the best for me and maybe you will help me find better solutions that I don’t know about. I use Windows 7/10 and use a Samsung Note 4 phone and an Android Tablet. I am trying out an iPad mini tablet for 2016. So here is my list: Continue reading What Apps and Resources are you using to be most effective in 2016?

Why Chuck Swindoll is Preaching from the New Living Translation

Many years ago when I first started following Jesus I would listen to Chuck Swindoll on Insight for Living almost every weeknight. Since there was no local church I could attend then, Chuck was most influential in my spiritual growth when I was I was a new Christian. I deeply respect Chuck’s teaching and opinions.
