How to Blog With A Cell Phone #2

Hey! 

Life where I'm at is busy... but still trying to keep up with my promised post of the week. Amidst work, friends, and kittens, it's pretty tough though. Haha :D ;b

Most pictures on my blog I take with my cell phone...except this one of course ;)

A while back I did this terrible post explaining how I blog. Yeah... I still blog with my cell phone, and after like 80+ posts... I hope they are finally getting better... I finally did get a laptop.

But my phone has become the natural way to blog... so it's a little difficult transferring everything over. For example, right now I'm too lazy to turn on the laptop, so it's back to the cell phone ;)

Of course, a picture of the kittens staying in my room ;)

What all do I do and what has changed since the beginning?


1. Well, I got a new phone which has an awesome pink case. This phone allows me to upload pictures straight from it. On my last phone I had to use a place called tinypic.com to convert all photos to html links and then paste those links in my blog posts.

Let's Just say fashion posts WERE a lot of work.

2. I stopped writing the posts directly through blogger.com because 
     a. It used up a lot of internet
     b. We didn't have much internet service so my posts would continually be lost.


So I downloaded a word doc app that I write all of my posts on. Once a post is written, I copy and paste it onto blogger where I finish the last minute edits, format it, and add pictures.



I know my bog still looks terrible... because my phone doesn't show me exactly what you all can see on a computer. I think I still need to work on the sizing a lot... with my laptop.

My blog is rappidly becoming a not-run-only-by-my-cell blog. 

In fact my new banner was created with my laptop through picmonkey.com

Isn't it awesome? (the banner)





My friend and I talking today. She'll be married in a week and a half!
So, I really haven't learned that many amazing things since that first post... but I'd like to think that my overall impression is improving ;) 

What do you'll think? And yes, pink and green has got to stay... those colors just express me too much :D


Also, one of my friends just started a blog!!!!! It already looks awesome and is going to have a bunch of really fun posts :D

I love discussions, but nothing mean — I post a lot of opinionated articles, and I'd love to know YOUR opinions, even if they oppose mine. But, please, no insulting. Be nice and let's get to know one another ~ Keturah

Living Like The Amish: Interviews With Three "English" Families PART I

Many people are obsessed with the Amish.
I know at one time I was as well, and to a degree I still am.
But my perception  has changed with experience.

It started a long time ago when my family went to an Amish-held auction (no, it's not a place where you can buy Amish children, but a place where you can buy things from the Amish). I was eleven years old and enthralled to be surrounded by so many Amish. I loved the cockscomb flowers they sold everywhere. I bought a whole box for $2 and dried them for seeds so I could plant my own.
But then I experienced my first reality shock concerning the Amish.
I had assumed since they lived a simpler life everything about them was completely old-fashioned and natural.
Imagine my horror when I saw Amish walking around with soda cans and store-bought ice cream.

"Mom," I said. "He's drinking soda!" 


During my years living with the Amish I learned a lot about them. As individuals. As a culture. And about their history. Recently…

Inside The Land Of The Free

Hello.
My name is Greg. 
I have a lot of time to think. Too much time. Sometimes I think about my life - why I am sitting in prison. I wonder what I could have done different - my life plays before my eyes.
"If only..."
But even I know that no amount of good works would have stopped tyranny from finding fault with me.
It is cold.
My clothes are thin.
My stomach is empty - occasionally filled with food of no sustenance. 
I hide my face in my knees - as if that will somehow protect me from the horrors of this dark cold dungeon. 
They keep it cold to freeze me, this I know.
It is a part of their game - to drive a lesson into me.
As if I have a lesson to learn solely because I was convicted.
Convicted, but not  guilty.
Years. 
68 years for standing against injustice.
How many years have I sat in here?
I have forgot.
All I know is this question, "Was I fated for this? Did God grant my birth just so I could spend life as if dead?"
I cry out to God - does He hear me?
I do not know. I can no…

It Doesn't Take a Genius to Recognize Corruption

After attending the writer's conference I had the opportunity to spend a week with my dad in Las Vegas (we went to federal court trials).
I don't usually speak much of his work as I'm not sure all what to say about it. He keeps the public updated with what's happening in court, with all the many men locked up that he's trying to help out. I think he said there are like 19 guys right now that he is specifically trying to help release. 
{If any of you have heard of the Bundy Ranch Stand Off, you'll know a little of what he is doing}
I won't go into too much detail with his work. I will say if you want to know more of how to help out and learn what's going on just do some googling - my dad's name is John Lamb. You should be able to find plenty on him ;p
Anyways, I was quite shocked the first day.
Security didn't surprise me at all. Very much like an airport ;p  Except, most of the security was actually nicer ;) I was very pleased with security as far …

I'm Not Into Politics, But...

“Hey, did you hear what's happening with those guys in Oregon from Malheur Refuge?”
“No. Tell me about it!”
“A bunch of guys felt that their rights as US citizens were being violated, so they decided to take back a bit of land for the “people” as a sign to the federal government to back off, and now they are all facing years to life in prison for 'terrorism' and-” My words slow down as I see the person's face slowly becomes void of emotion. Bored? Or do they not like what I'm saying…? Have I just lost a friend? What did I say????




“Oh. Yeah.. I'm not really into politics.” They say.
“Oh, OK.” I say. But inside something feels wrong. Not into politics???
Hey, I hate politics. I despise them. So much stress, and fighting, and corruption. But… it's a part of life. Or is it???
What if I told you Fred's barn just burned down and we were going to go do some things to encourage him and help him out. Get some guys to rebuild it. Make him some meals. You, know, …
