iPad RSS Reader – Feedler RSS

I have finally found a decent RSS Reader for the iPad…FeedlerRSS.  This app is clean and user friendly.  Have a lot of RSS Feeds I “browse”…I will not say I read them, but I skim the content and read whatever catches my eye.

On my laptop I still prefer Google Reader.  I must say, I “browse” more on the iPad these days than on my laptop.  The iPad is just made for content consumption and I really like using it for just that!

WxDev – Using DebugView with WinDev


For me WinDevGeeks friends, we use DebugView with Clarion and we have taught all our support staff how to use it.  So, as we move to WinDev we would like to keep using DebugView for our support staff.  After 30 seconds of searching….I found the way to post to DebugView:

 

 

Accepting one of these, results in the following call:

API(“kernel32.dll”, “OutputDebugStringA”, “Terry’s Test Message”)

Now, our team will use this in some basic error handling and/or showing some SQL statements we are processing.  We will wrap this command with a simple class and call it when needed with DebugMessage(arg:Title, arg:Message).

Enjoy

Recipe: Comforting Chicken Noodle Soup


Got the fall blues…this will pick you up and get you into the Thanksgiving mood!  We were blessed with this one from a church family (Thanks Forkum Family!)

Comforting Chicken Noodle Soup 

From Deena Forkum

This is a yummy and easy soup—it makes a lot.  The sour cream transforms this soup into something very tasty, so please don’t leave it out.

 

10 cups water / 2 Qt
10 chicken bouillon cubes
12 oz. bag of uncooked wide egg noodles
3 cans cream of chicken soup, undiluted
3 cans chicken, drained or 3 cups cooked
chicken cut in bite size pieces
12-16 oz sour cream
In a LARGE soup kettle or Dutch oven, bring water and bouillon to a boil.  Add noodles and cook, uncovered, until tender, about 10 minutes.  Do Not Drain.  Add undiluted cream of chicken soup and chicken; heat thoroughly on simmer.  Remove from heat then stir in sour cream.
Serve immediately. Will scorch easily.

 

Oct 2012 Family Update

Wow!  It has been too long!  Not that anyone cares…but I miss writing and sharing!  Well, our family adventures have continued over the last 2 years with nothing less than your typically family fun!

We had a great time this week with Halloween Bash at The Edge ministry with over 800 kids!  I volunteered to man the grill this year and we had a ball grilling around 50 lbs of hot dogs for all the spooks!  Thursday night we went over to Prescott South for the AR Tailgate and had a great time with all the kidos!

We hit the beach this fall break in Fort Walton!  Well over due family vacation!  Here are just a few of our gifts from the sea!  We had so much fun just walking the beaches and spending time together.

Chase is now 13 yrs old and in 8th grade…wow where has the time gone!  He is a FCA officer and is active in ELEV8 (middle school ministry).  We are so proud of the young man he has became.  He began taking guitar lessons this year and has really done great with it.  He has played a couple of times for our family devo and we loved it.

Alli is now 8 yrs old and in 2nd grade and loving it!  She has made some great friends and many of them live in our neighborhood!  Alli likes to read and is a good little reader.

Leslie is in her 3rd year at Prescott South Elementary as a Kindergarten Teacher.  She loves this school and is working her tail off this year!  Since PSES got the Stem grant she has been working really hard.  She has a great team of ladies she is working with!

Leslie and I decided this year to help with our college ministry group (PoGro) on Sunday nights.  We wanted to find a place we could serve together and this working out great!  We adopted a college student last year, Ms. Sarah Nix, and really enjoy getting to spend time with her and getting to know her.

As for me, well, life is crazy.  A few weeks back I felt like I was being overwhelmed by opportunities to serve God.  It sounds weird, but I was a little freaked out by everything I could be involved in.  Most of you know, if I am going to do something, I am going to do something to the best of my abilities.  The thought of serving God half way, not appealing to me.  As I begin to pray about each opportunity I felt even more lead to do each one.  God finally got my attention one night at PoGro while we were worshiping Him….the words Do Not Be Afraid hit me like a mac truck.  I was so worried about limiting myself to a few areas and God was pushing me to see, I can do them all and all to the best of my abilities.  Huh, this was never an option in my mind…it seemed like too much for me…but not when you add God in the mix.

So, it is On Like Donkey Kong!  All the opportunities are now being per sued.  You will begin to hear about them here as things happen.  I am excited about what My God can do….with me and my family!

And one last note…Chase, Michelle (Tim’s wife) and I entered The Grove 1st Annual Chili Cook-Off and WON!  We had a ball cooking together!  Maybe we will post our recipe…LOL!
