American Crow Awake-Sleep.

from my observations, the American Crow sleeps for approx. 8.5 hours. They go silent from 20h30 in the evening and start to caw just after 5h the next morning. this gives the Crows about 13 hours in which to socialize and hunt for food.

Godspell - Day by Day (ca. 1971)


We sang this song at St. Iggy's in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s at te 9 pm Folk Mass.
Some of the songs we sang were written by the group Discernment, while others, like this were others songs.
It was such a great time to be alive , besides my personal issues I had with my Mom at the time...

I love the "jazzy" feel to the melody...What I called "coffee table jazz".

Day by Day is from the Chrisitian musical Godspell ca. 1971.

Formatting N. Amer. Tel. No. in LibreOffice Base

As per this video tutorial, to format a N. Amer. style telephone number, you must use the Number (NUMERIC) field type when setting up your database in LibreOffice Base. This won't work if you use VARCHAR as your field type. The SQL coding is:

ALTER TABLE "Business Contacts" ADD COLUMN TELEPHONE NUMERIC (14) BEFORE OTHER_COLUMN;

Then Open that table for Data Entry and select the Telephone field you just create. RIght-click and select the Format Column... menu.

Select User-Defined and in Format ... type in the following:

(???) ###-0000

Click OK / Close

Missing Feaures in LibreOffice Base

In using LO Base more and more I am finding that it does not have certain features that are a MUST, like:

* Printing / displaying data from the CLOB field in Report Builder.

* Cannot use drag & drop to move DDL columns. Access can do this.

Minimal SQL field types

Every SQL database from the simplest to the most complex should have these fields as a Minimum:

PRIMARY KEY for storing the unique ID number of a record

TIMESTAMP DEFAULT NOW for storing the date the record was initially created. TIMESTAMP has been included since SQL:1999

CLOB for storing long character strings such as Memo fields. CLOB has been included since SQL:2008.

Praying for a Schizophrenic Man

Jesus says that we should pray for and bless our enemies, so that they will turn to the Light. I have a Schizo. Affective (Psychotic) man who is a housemate to me where I live. I'd prefer he not live here.

Schizophrenia is caused by the brain not developing properly. People like my housemate cannot have normal feelings like empathy, guilt, wrongdoing. They are controlled by Demon spirits who are "walk-ins". They use Human bodies so that they can use them to destroy Humanity.

We must not let them win!

Matthew 5:44:

"But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,"

and

1 Peter 3:9:

"Don't repay evil for evil. Don't retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will bless you for it."


So I pray Lord Jesus that Jeff's physical brain be reconfigured in its hormones and physical makeup, to render the Demons "Brian" and the Demon-creature ineffective. That Jeff's brain heal completely and that Jeff develops more and more empathy so that he is not a danger to himself, myself, or society.

 Amen.
