Humans are dishonest


I keep wondering how humans can be soo dishonest. When christians bring/teach the gospel and talk about the ending of the world, the comeback of Jesus, Adam & Eve, it's extremely hard for people to believe what they say or actually to believe what God says.

But when a bunch of Mayas proclaim that the end of the world will be on Friday 21st of December and since they knew in their hearts the world would not be destroyed on that particular day, they started to formulate another explanation of what they meant, but still SO MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE THEM!!!

Very odd, don't you think??


To all Blogger users with CSS knowledge

It seems that the textarea element cannot be customized with css codes. I'm talking about the area where you enter your comment, see example below:



Is there another possibility to customize this element with CSS? Thanks in advance!

Webdesigning by CSS





You probaby wonder how I manage to set up my page like this. Well, you first have to start learning about css, which means cascading style sheets. You will struggle in the beginning, because sometimes it's difficult, but the more you practise, the more you will comprehend the CSS language. Even I am still learning.

I started with web designing since November 2008 and I've never stopped since. The two images above are books that I've purchased from Amazon.com to guide me with webdesigning. They are very recommendable books.



The tags/backgrounds/images I create are made in Corel Paint Shop Pro. Very sometimes I use Adobe Photosohop, I'm not too familiar with it, but there are many similarities. I've learned working with Paint Shop Pro by making tutorials online. The first time I made my own design was October 2010. See the video here: 


You need to make many, many tutorials, before you get an idea of how the program works and you need to be incredibly creative to make your own designed tags. Of course, your images will look weird and simple at first, but the more you practise, the more it will look professional. I must admit that it's very addictive, once you get the hang of it .

Nice art from Alexander Volkov

I accidentally stumbled upon his artwork on internet and man... he is good! Especially the ones which contain a window in it. I used one of his paintings for a theme of mine, called "Winter Window". This image of him is so cozy http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3117/3214581081_edd5d8b5d1_o.gif... I wished his exhibition would be displayed in Europe next year. Maybe he'll come to England one day as well or another country and I really hope to be there, God willing. You can find more of his paintings here:

This is his biography:


Alexander Volkov was born in St. Petersburg (then Leningrad), Russia in 1960. He started painting with oil as a high school student. From the age of 7 to 17 he attended a special English school and in 1986 graduated from the Department of Physics at Leningrad State University. Following graduation, Alexander worked as an animator at Leningrad Studio of Science Films and later as a stage artist in a small Leningrad theatre. In 1981 he began to exhibit his paintings with a group of 200 Leningrad artists known as the "Brotherhood of Experimental Arts", a conglomeration of "underground" art groups active in Leningrad at the time. Later, he joined a splinter group called "Ostrov" or "Island" which united 30 artists who felt that, ideologically, their work was neither socialist realism nor extreme avant garde. Reluctantly, he calls himself a "self-taught" artist. "We really teach ourselves. If you want to learn, you will always find someone to learn from, be they dead or alive, great or unknown. you will learn from everything you see and hear around you - if you are willing to pay attention. perhaps, during my forming years, I have made a lot of unnecessary mistakes, but at the same time I have had the enormous advantage of picking my own teachers" And so they were: William Turner, Vermeer, Franz Hals, Rembrandt and many others from the previous centuries as well as Edward Hopper, Maxfield Parrish and Andrew Wyeth of the 20th century. They also were Beethoven and Satie, Nabokov and Steinbeck, Einstein and Tarkovsky. They were school and university friends, physics professors and struggling artists. "They have all taught me something - how to see, how to hear, how to understand things and, most importantly, how to understand myself. I cannot separate any one of their voices from the voice which I hear inside of me and which has become my own voice." Combining a lifelong fascination with architecture, landscape and still-life subjects, Alexander brings drama and poetic expression into his work. With his unique vision, he merges mood and atmosphere, evoking powerful emotions that create harmony. "There is no greater mystery to me than the conflict of light and dark. In the way they clash and penetrate each other, there is the source of everything. Whether I paint a landscape, a still-life or a portrait, within it there is always a story of light traveling through darkness."



A few examples of his work:

Don't Forget Jesus

Christmas is a special time 
To reflect on Jesus Christ, 
The wonder of His lowly birth 
Brings meaning to our lives.

 There really is no other reason, 
We celebrate this day, 
The birth of God’s precious son 
And the life, He willingly gave 

But so much seems to distract us 
In the busy-ness of our lives, 
We lose our focus in all the happenings, 
Not knowing, we leave out Christ 

We lose sight of the true meaning 
As we endlessly rush about 
Trying to find that perfect gift, 
Seems to cloud our Saviour out 

We need to stop and reflect awhile 
Remembering our precious Lord, 
His birth, His life and sacrifice 
And all that He stands for 

For though the world may celebrate, 
It seems though for other reasons, 
Let’s keep in mind that Jesus Christ 
Is the true meaning of the season.

Republicans



Most Republicans are led by an evil spirit of hate and racism. And they claim to be christians???? Don't make me laugh! http://farm2.staticflickr.com/1127/845975377_7dd1a163d6_o.gif Jesus rightly says in Matthew 7:21-23:


Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.  Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’  Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’


It's terrible to go to hell with an imaginary heaven in your head!


So don't be a false disciple!

Mitt Romney


I hope Mitt Romney wins. Then he can clean the garbage that his predecessors have made from the Republican party  http://farm2.staticflickr.com/1303/846827806_f409a6abfe_o.gif.

Chefville Hacks and Cheats are fake!



I think it's time now that the lies about hacks for Chefville which are played in videos on Youtube, should be exposed! Those so-called hack programs for Chefville ARE FAKE!

I'm pretty sure that all the surveys that need to be done in order to obtain the program and/or a password, are meant to make money for the person who wants you to download the hack. I think that every time a survey is being done by any person, an amount of money goes to the person that provides the program/password.

I've downloaded 3 hacks and none of them are working!!! The image that is being displayed above, shows a Facebook login button. That button doesn't even work, lol. The fake menu on the upper part of the program where Options, Check for Updates and About are written are just single words without a link to a website! So that's the point when I've found out that these programs are sooo fake! Who knows when a real program will be published without those annoying surveys .


I'm providing these fake hacks/cheats RIGHT HERE AND NOW, so you can see and judge for yourself!

Good luck!

DC Talk - Walls

This song takes me back to 90's. Unfortunately humans haven't learned anything though. We're back to the beginning...It's such a shame that these events actually happened in America. It seems that many Americans haven't learned from it yet and prefer to stay ignorant, in order to feel better about themselves...a big big lie.
