Tribulation Harvest

I use Food Bank items to try to recreate my Mom's Kale Soup. Almost every item came from the Food Bank except the chicken stock and the chourico (Portuguese sausage). I added an ingredient to sweeten things up a bit, but it's definitely not part of the original recipe.

Brought home more food from the Food Bank. The pork loin was already thawed out (meat products are usually frozen) so I HAD to cook it TODAY! As usual, things didn't work out like I thought they would, but that's okay, because everything tasted awesome! This is my first real attempt to make a shorter video for everyone to enjoy.

Cooking more things that I picked up at the local food bank. This time I'm cooking things I've never handled before. We're roasting a head of cauliflower, boiling two different types of beets and testing them to see how they taste, and making plumb jam. How will it all turn out? You'll have to watch to find out!

Have you ever received food items from a local food bank/food pantry and not have the slightest idea of what to do with it? Instead of letting it sit in the refrigerator until it spoils, let's try to become more familiar with those raw ingredients. In this video, I try my hand at cooking things I've never cooked before and I experiment in using some items in ways I never thought of before. This is part one of a multi-part series.


Okay, trying this again. Watch the old man play Minecraft for fun. I've played the game before, but decided to share my game play with my subscribers and anyone else who was interested.

The first time I attempted this, I took video of my tv screen, this time I was able to record it on my PS4. I downloaded it to a thumb drive, but I guess it doesn't download in high def. Sorry about that. I also just realized that the volume didn't transition well from my original recording. Sorry again. Still learning how to record this via PS4, download it to a thumb drive, upload it to my computer, edit the video, convert it to a usable format, and then upload it to YouTube. Grrr...

I have no experience making this soup and I was winging it a bit. Yes, I made some mistakes and you'll see them I even left in a blooper and put one more at the end. Please excuse the severe editing. The original video was about 50 minutes long, so I had to do some major surgery on the

As always, please give this videos a thumbs up. Also, please consider subscribing to my channel. If you DO subscribe, please click on the notification bell so that you'll be notified every time I post a video. Thanks, and God bless!!!

I'll be 59 this year, and I still play video games. Surprised? LOL
I thought I'd take a crack at playing some Minecraft and sharing my experiences online. This is just an experiment. We'll see how it goes. Want to see more? Please leave a comment below. If I get enough people who want to watch me play, I'll invest in a headset and record and post directly from my PlayStation 4 so that I won't need to record the tv screen with my phone.

I thought I'd experiment with recording a little Minecraft. If you enjoy it and want to see more, please let me know in the comment section below and by giving this video a thumbs up. If I get enough people who want to see more playtime, I'll try to purchase a new headset so that I can record directly on my PS4 and upload videos from there. It will be high quality, and we won't have the blurring problems that I seem to have with my phone when it's recording the play trough on my tv screen.

A lot of the songs we sing in church are sung in the third person? They're not actually sung "TO" God, but "ABOUT" God. Why is that? I also touch upon how church tradition often doesn't reflect biblical truths and how difficult it can be to be the one who feels obligated to point that out to those who may not want to listen.

Just sharing my opinion before the release of the last installment of the Skywalker saga. Are you planning on padding Disney's bank account to see this movie? Please let me know in the comment section below.

Opening my fourth order from Missouri River Soap. This order contains soaps and a wax melt.

Missouri River Soap:

Well, it's time to get serious about losing the weight. Here's just the first in a series of videos that I hope to post once a week updating everyone on my progress. I'm thinking of posting my weight loss videos on Wednesdays and calling it Weight Loss Wednesdays!!! Corny? Maybe so, but can you think of a better suggestion? Leave it in the comments below.

Is it me, or are there just too many darn Democratic candidates? It's tough trying to focus on what they're all about plus keep up with the rest of what's going on in the world of politics. Let's hope the field thins out quickly.

In my quest for the best wind reduction solution to this directional mic issue, I purchased a fuzzy microphone windscreen. I unpack it and test it out as I head downtown for some local events. Check out the video to see if I finally found a solution.

I also take a quick stroll through the 2019 Folk Festival here in New Bedford.
Believe it or not, all of this takes place on the same day!!!

Here is an update on some of the things for which I've made unboxing videos in the recent past. I gave you my initial critique, but here's what I think about these items after using them for a while. Below are links to the original unboxing videos for the items described in this video.

There was a new Village and Pillage update to PS4, and it hasn't gone well. It lags and freezes. I played the game today to see if it still lagged, and it did...and it ended the same way it did several times last night. Check out my game play and see if your experience matches mine.

Want to see me get fired? Just watch this video. I give a first hand account of what lead up to it and even have footage of the actual moment I was fired! It's a story of collusion between two members of the management team and an employee (me) that they tried to make quit. You'll be surprised to find out what happened to those members of the management team that played dirty. I know I was!

Spend some time with me unboxing some of the accessories that I purchased for my new phone in an attempt at making it a little easier for me to create content for YouTube.

Acuvar 50" Aluminum Tripod:
Salvation T-Shirt that I'm wearing:

I came across an issue I needed to address, so instead of just doing an unboxing video (which you'll see in another video), I felt the need to do a product review. As the title describes, this microphone went from a zero to a hero!

Saramonic SmartMic at Walmart:

I received another order from Missouri River Soap, so it’s time to open it up and check out the goods!!!
I almost missed receiving this package today. I received a text update on my phone that the postal worker had attempted to deliver the package (the doorbells in my tenement building aren’t operational), so I immediately ran outside, walked up the block and found the postal worker. She was one house from finishing her route in this area and moving on to the next, so I caught her just in time.

In this video I discuss what type of beard products I use and what brand I just can't seem to be without. Stick around at the end for some bloopers.

Honest Amish web site:

This video is a personal rant about all of the false prophets out there who make videos and who share information about their prediction of the date of the Rapture. I watched a few of those videos today, and my righteous anger got the best of me. You'll see as I begin talking about this subject and then get more and more upset as I went on.

I wrote a blog about this subject in 2015, but it's still relevant. You can find it here:

The point I tried to point out in this video is that God said that no man will know the day nor the hour of His coming ("But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone." Matt. 24:36). To even think that we can figure out the day the Lord will return is to say that we believe we are more clever and more intelligent than Jesus, who Himself did not know. The only one who has that information is our Father!

I also wanted to express my concern and frustration that young born again believers are eating this stuff up and are getting disappointed and disheartened when these predictions don't come to pass. Some even walk away from the faith.

There are videos out there with titles like: "11 WEEKS UNTIL WE ARE WITH HIM IN PARADISE! (RAPTURE 2019)" It's true! They exist! And these people say that it's been confirmed online and in their spirit.

For years I've seen these types of videos, and I even began getting caught up in the hoopla at one point, but thank God that He rescued me from this way of thinking. I'm hoping that this video is a wake-up call for others. Please share it with as many people as possible and let's expose these false prophets.


This is Part 3 of a follow up to my video, "Living Stealth In A Self Storage Unit...Not." That video can be found here:

I received some questions from a gentleman who is doing research on the subject of homelessness and he had additional questions for me after watching my video.
