"But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." Daniel 12:4

We're living in "The Information Age" making this scripture strangely obvious and perhaps pertinent. Even the most skeptical mind has to admit that knowledge is exploding in all directions. It's said that 80% percent of the world's total knowledge has been brought forth in the last decade and that 90% percent of all the scientists who have ever lived are alive today. A portion of the book of Daniel was not meant to be understood "until the time of the end". Many bible scholars believe that this prophecy applies to an increasing knowledge of science, medicine, travel and technology. Many bible scholars also believe a time is fast approaching when it will be too late to search the scriptures and decide about one's eternal destiny.

Yup, technology takes great leaps sometimes and when it does, it's not with trumpets blaring. I've got a kid at my high school who writes apps, sends them where-ever he sends them, and people buy them. He made several thousand dollars last year writing really specific apps for a tight market. Did it during recess.

When Diesel hit $4 a gallon (Thanks Obama, may you rot in the farthest caverns of Hell) I had to sell my boat. I got less than the value of the fuel in the tanks. I dould afford a few gallons of diesel or monthly moorage, not both. The biennial haul out was out of the question. Maybe a 12' aluminum trailer boat for a few hundred dollars is in my future, but never again a vessel large enough to cruise the San Juans or stay overnight on. Thanks to the Commie in Chief, I'll never have enough value in my pensions to do more than ride the ferry. If I can scrape up enough loot to fuel the car to get to Anacortes from MLT.

Now truly poor, Ol'
