Experience Ghana

How to experience Ghana to the fullest
Now, a lot of people keep asking me how Ghana really is like. I am going to give you a list to follow to experience Ghana in America for one month.
Food: Now this one is nearly completely impossible in America but here goes. You may not eat canned food this whole month because it is much too expensive. Instead you will have to buy all raw veggies and cook from scratch. One out of two dinners must include tomatoes. If possible, you must eat at a Ghanaian restaurant, not very common in America though.

Roads: Now for one/third of each trip, jostle each other to represent roads filled with pot holes. Remember to get stuck in traffic for each trip you take. Also, you should remember to use your horn as much as you can. Since you can’t get lots of irresponsible and non-obeying taxis and transportation, you’ll have to do without them. You will break down at least two times and have to call for a taxi or tow or have someone pick you up. No air-conditioning while in break down mode.
Internet: A yes this is a biggie. Other than the fact you can’t use it when power is gone unless you have a phone connection, you will lose internet for about two hours each day at random times for two hours at a time. The internet’s speed will be good though. Finally for the last week, you will lose it entirely.
Water: For actual water consumption, you have two choices, buy a filter or buy bottled water. Of course you could get a well, but that is a bit overboard unless you are thinking about the apocalypse.  On the other hand for other uses, you will have to get as many buckets as you can. Then these will be the only water you will have for two days of the week picked at random to do anything you need to do that requires water. Another solution is getting a large container for water (called a polytank here), but with this if you have stairs, you’ll have to carry bucket up those stair and that gets heavy.
Electricity: Oh yeah, this is the worst. Doing this for a month, the first week, we will start off light. You will switch off the electricity oh for about 2 hours for three days out of the whole week. The next week you will get three days of electricity off straight. If you have a generator, you may turn it on. The next week, you will get 24 hours without electricity and twelve hours with electricity. Finally, you will get 12 hours off and 24 hours on for the week.

This must all be done in temperatures at the average of 90 degrees without air-conditioning. 
Have fun.

Blog Restart
Finally, I get my lazy self to do this. Let’s see how long this restart goes.
Okay most of you have watched the Avengers. Therefore, I am going to my own personal review of each Avenger starting from in my personal opinion the lowest to the top in fighting skills.  
First of we have…. the Black Widow AKA Natalia Romanov.
Okay fine, you need to pacify the feminist but why was she even in the Avengers? She is nearly useless in this battle. I mean, fine, when she picked up Loki’s spear, she had some effectiveness. I personally don’t think her fighting was all that great.
Next of all we have Captain America.
Now Captain America is my favorite superhero, don’t get me wrong, but he is highly limited. He has no great range capability except for tossing his shield, but that requires retrieving it. The only reason he is alive is because of his shield anyway. I think his shield returns the energy used against it because it does not vibrate (refer to the first Captain America movie). When Thor attempts to hit Captain America with his shield, there is a huge flash, and Thor goes flying. Most likely, the energy of his blow went right back at Thor. Captain America is no martial arts expert also which is a disadvantage since he is a ground fighter. Lastly, he is stuck on the ground.
Now we have Hawkeye.
Hawkeye definitely does not suffer from lack of range. He has no weakness if you are simply talking about humans except for not being able to fly. He is pretty good at martial arts as demonstrated in his fight with the Black Widow.
Now Iron Man is way too cocky, yet he still makes third.
He’s got range, he has an amazing range of weaponry, and he is iron well probably some kind of harder metal, but you get the point. Better than advanced humans, not to the level of say Thor since Thor would have killed him if not for Captain America. He has the capability to fly which proves rather useful. Overall, Iron man is a devastating warrior.
Now we hit my second favorite superhero. Thor.
Now Thor has his charm for ladies. Maybe it is just his looks, but I kid you not middle age women swoon over him. Anyway, he is nearly invincible. I mean, he can call down lightning, he can fly, and he can use his hammer over extremely long distances. That is what you call power. I wonder what are his limits though.

Lastly we have the Hulk.

Is it even possible to kill the Hulk? Bury him in gunfire, he still lives. Fully armored, although maybe you could kill him through his eyes…. He can jump extremely far which makes up for the fact he can’t fly. His strength is amazing. Just raw power is the Hulk, making him the ultimate avenger.

 A gun wouldn't be a gun without that little explosive thing called gunpowder, formerly known as black powder.75 parts saltpeter with 15 parts charcoal and 10 parts sulfur was the original recipe found by the Chinese around AD. 850 ( This was used on the field of combat by the Chinese with minimal success and generally in crude form like simple grenades, land mines, etc. until the recipe was transferred over the Great Silk Road. The Muslims began to use it around AD. 1200. They accordingly invented cannons and the like and used them with some success. The Europeans also began to adopt gunpowder around this time. Most of these used cannons; some of these hand cannons, fore-runner to the modern gun. By AD 1350 weapons that used gunpowder were common in Europe.

Historical Day

Ignatius (Said this before he was killed as a martyr) 
“I thank The O Lord, that Thou hast vouchsafed thus to honor me. I am God’s grain, to be ground between the teeth of wild beasts, that I may become a holy loaf for the Lord.”

The Duke of Wellington was the greatest warrior ever. People say he defeated Napoleon brilliantly. No…. They had almost equal armies, and the French nearly won. Napoleon had even made a few bad mistakes, but still was winning. Wellington was saved by the Prussian’s timely arrival.

Revival! (of a blog)

*Enters amid drum rolls*
Though some of you people might have wished it, no, I didn’t die. Neither malaria nor cold could do that. Anyway, I have come to revive my cold, poor blog.
Not much has been happening over here unfortunately. Our church has been having it’s twenty-first anniversary. My dad has gone to Uganda for a conference, and a trip to Ho might be upcoming. Also, the whole house has been periodically sick with a cold, and my mom got it twice. Not much else unless you want to hear the mundane details of school, school, and more school.

Of Solomon

My son, if thou wilt receive my words and hide my commandments within thee,so that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom and apply thine heart to understanding;yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; if thou seekest her as silver and searchest for her as for hidden treasure, then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.

As my dad says, whenever you see a conjunction, STOP. IF! Put on the brakes. So we will receive wisdom if we what? If we cry after her, mourn for her, go crazy searching for here (I don’t look for a hidden gift like a zombie with no brains left to eat). Only IF, we seek after wisdom like madmen will we find her. Just like trying to understand a difficult concept, we need to go after wisdom in the Bible and prayer with concentration. Go crazy gents.

Devotion and Dedication

Ps.119:10 With my whole heart have I sought Thee; O let me not wander from Thy commandments!

This is the final post on loving God before we move on to loving others.  When you love someone, you are devoted to them. If they are sick, you are feeling sick for them etc. True love creates devotion and a dedication to a person.
Devotion to God goes deep. It means that we should constantly be thinking about him trying to please him. We must be glued to God inseparable.

Of course, this does not come over night. We must pursue God to be dedicated to him. We must work on it always. Because we are at a point of affection for God one minute, doesn’t mean we will be the next day. I mean even in a relationship, your level of affection fluctuate day to day. Christianity is an up-hill walk.

Armor can even be stated to be a thick shirt and often it was only that. Despite the fact good armor was always expensive, always armor has had cheaper variant capable of arming a whole army. From the beginning of time, humans have used leather and or thick clothing for defense against weapons. Some variations of armor included scale armor (similar to real scales only iron), chain mail which dates back to 300 BC, and simple plate of armor.

Early armor was either made of hardened leather or bronze. As time went on the Greeks and the Romans made especial use of armor since other nations preferred the shield above armor for the most part. Armor varied often making it difficult to define one kind of armor or piece of armor except for the breast plate.
