JUL 24, 17 .. FEAR .. FAITH .. FACTS ..

Good News, Great News, I am on-line here in my apartment in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

Happy, my host / my landlord, was here working with technicians from his Internet Service Provider until 9:25pm last night to get me hooked up. So here we are. The good, the great news.

The ‘other news’ ? It is just a tad .. s l o w !

Oh Captain how you understate things.

I put up a Post on blogspot you may enjoy.


The view from my apartment on a nice and a sunny morning.

Looking to my left.

Looking straight ahead.

Looking to my right.

I have figured out my food plan. I use yogurt to moisten my Fitness Cereal. I am eating two types of instant noodle soup. Mild chicken noodle on the left and outlandish fire-burning-hot on the right with great Mongolian whole wheat bread. So far I have not opened up the apple sauce.

I have a great kitchen to eat my meals in.

Often I eat my cereal and yogurt while sitting in the chair at the foot of my bed.

Life is good.

We live on several levels of existence.

Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered the door. Fear was gone.

THAT level of existence is the Spiritual world. Giddy wonderful idealism. God is good. Have no fear. All is well. Relax. Whatever will be will be.

FEAR. False Evidence Appearing Real.

However, like it or not you giddy idealists, we also live in the real, in the physical, world.

FEAR. Factual Evidence Appears Real.

I am living in this factual, physical world at present.

Three fellow human beings of my acquaintance have ..

  • Fallen. Two of them inside of their own homes.
  • Each of them lost consciousness instantly
  • Each of them died (as in, you know, dead) never knowing what happened to them

Yours truly has fallen more times than I can count.

Luckily I have basically gotten away with all but three of them.

In 2004 I broke my left knee cap in two places. I was lucky I did not also break my right knee cap because I landed on both of my knees.

Last November 2016 I fell twice in the United Arab Emirates.

All I did the first fall was to severely break the skin on the palms of both hands luckily escaping from being run-over by oncoming traffic. I fell crossing a busy road J-walking. I could have gotten killed by an on-coming car or gotten a life-threatening, severe infection from all of the raw patches on my two palms.

November 25th, 2016, in the Dubai International Airport .. My Fall To End All Falls. I severely broke my left hip.

We live in a world of physical reality. God is NOT going to stop bad things from happening to good people. God gave me a brain to use.

So now I look like this walking around.

Know what? I will take a broken hip, a broken arm, a broken anything EXCEPT A BROKEN HEAD / SKULL !

Know what? Not one single person has looked at me oddly. Not one single person has said one word..

EXCEPT a few have said to me, “How nice you ride a bicycle!”

Know what? I have gone out without my helmet a time-or-two-or-three.

As I sit here, I am hoping to go into Russian Siberia for hopefully one full month. The wheels are, right now, in action.


Spiritually I believe God has a plan for me and I am trying to follow his plan.

Oh Yes There Must Be A God. It looks like this Post is going to press.

Know what?

I am smiling from ear-to-ear.

      Ring me. I don’t pickup. I KNOW you are on this. I too like the helmet. I am happy with the Post. Tedious as it got to be at times. Several times I just walked away and did something else. It was nip-and-tuck to get it up in time to be dated Monday the 24th of July. Thanks for reading it. Love .. Cap

    Plain Jane Black???? At the very least I would have expected sizzling red and orange flames or lime green racing stripes on that helmet. Maybe you can find some lime green duct tape and personalize it?
