Come join my family and I on our many adventures and follow Robin on her weight loss journey. I post tutorials and reviews on various subjects such as Premier Pro, the GoPro, Hotel Reviews, etc. You will also find covers that I have made using my Tyros 4, as well as original compositions.

The Johnny O Show


This is my very first production using a blue screen, so it's far from perfect. But we all had a lot of fun making it.

Good News Global Network is a fake news skit. The setting is based on Jehovah's promises for a restored paradise earth in the future using the following points from the Bible (below is just a small sample of scriptures that mention this promise).

Psalm 83:18 - "May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth."

2 Timothy 3:1-5 - "1 But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power; and from these turn away."

Daniel 2:44 - "In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever."

Revelation 11:18 - "But the nations became wrathful, and your own wrath came, and the appointed time came for the dead to be judged and to reward your slaves the prophets and the holy ones and those fearing your name, the small and the great, and to bring to ruin those ruining the earth."

Proverbs 2:22 - "As for the wicked, they will be cut off from the earth,
And the treacherous will be torn away from it."

Isaiah 45:18 - "For this is what Jehovah says, The Creator of the heavens, the true God, The One who formed the earth, its Maker who firmly established it, Who did not create it simply for nothing, but formed it to be inhabited 'I am Jehovah, and there is no one else.'"

Isaiah 14:24 - "Jehovah of armies has sworn 'Just as I have intended, so it will occur, And just as I have decided, that is what will come true.'"

John 3:16 - "For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life."

Psalm 37:10, 11 - "10 Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more; You will look at where they were, And they will not be there. 11 But the meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace."

Psalm 37:29 - "The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it."

Isaiah 65:21, 22 - "21 They will build houses and live in them,
And they will plant vineyards and eat their fruitage. 22 They will not build for someone else to inhabit, Nor will they plant for others to eat. For the days of my people will be like the days of a tree, And the work of their hands my chosen ones will enjoy to the full."

John 5:28, 29 - 28 "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment."

Acts 24:15 - "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous."

Revelation 21:3, 4 - "3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say 'Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.'"

Ep. #236 Good News Global Network

The following day, I do a little more testing and playing with the W6LVP magnetic loop antenna... Even though I still have some issues with noise using this antenna, for the most part, it's done an exceptional job, and it is definitely a keeper! :-) Subscribe: http://...

So where I live in town, my radio suffers from a tremendous amount of noise. I got a W6LVP amplified receive-only, magnetic loop antenna. I compare channels and positions with and without the loop, and see what is working best. It was an interesting experiment. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

***** Order your box of Cascade Professional Fryer Boil Out here: http://... ***** After having to replace my old dishwasher, I found that my new one just wasn't getting the job done. Doing some research, I found out more dishwasher detergents no long contain phosphates, which could have been the cause of my cloudy, grimy dishes. So I ordered some Cascade Professional Fryer Boil Out detergent. It

This one wasn't my favorite, mainly because I'm not a big fan of carrots... But Robin really enjoyed it, and besides the carrots, it was another great recipe. Always looking forward to the next
***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** Another box of Home Chef has come our way, and the first meal Tiana prepared was the ranch steak and jalapeño popper fritters with fresh corn and cheddar cheese. This was another really good meal from Home Chef - again, I don't think I can recommend this company enough. It's sure to please. The next meal is the sweet
So the day of the 2017 solar eclipse, I decided to give the Solar Eclipse QSO Party (SEQP) contest a try. All things go: digital, phone, whisper, etc - whatever you can work, you can count. The contest's main goal is to see how the eclipse affects radio waves, so it was a pretty interesting experiment. Even though we couldn't see the eclipse here in Iowa, the contest was pretty successful for me,
Brittain and I decided to give the ARRL Rookie Roundup RTTY contest. Even though we spent a few hours, we only made about 10 contacts that were actually doing the contest. So, we discovered that RTTY is actually extremely difficult, and there's so much noise... Definitely something that's gonna take some perfecting. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

Our last day in Branson for our 8th anniversary celebration. We visited the Promised Land Zoo, which with the VIP Plus package, this was by far the best zoo experience Robin and I have ever had. And we've gone to a LOT of zoos. Without the VIP Plus, it was about an average zoo, but if you visit Branson, definitely recommend the VIP/VIP Plus package. Completely worth it. We took a look at The
Day 4 of our 8 year anniversary trip: Robin and I take a leisure day and just find ourselves doing whatever we please - and that happened to be eating at Mel's Hard Luck Diner for lunch, and OutBack Steak & Oyster Bar for dinner. Also giving the Pepper Palace a visit, and then thoroughly enjoying The Run Away Mountain Coaster. It was a good day for us, while the girls enjoyed the Iowa State Fair,
Day 3 of our anniversary, the kids spent the day shopping in Des Moines, and then visiting Adventure Land. Robin and I went on the Ride the Ducks Tour - which Robin especially enjoyed - and to the Branson Belle, which neither of us particularly enjoyed. Overall, a good day for both us and the girls. :-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook: http://... #thejohnnyoshow
Second day away in Branson, the girls don't do much except visit the Dari Barn in Grinnell. ;-) While Robin and I check out the Branson farmers market, then go to attend out free show at the Grand Country Music Hall, watching the Comedy Jamboree. We didn't know if we were going to stay and watch the entire thing, but it turned out pretty good. :-) Then to end the night we went and saw The
Robin and I head to Branson, MO for our 8 year anniversary celebration, for a little get-away from Newton and the kids. ;-) The first day was mostly driving and checking into the hotel, we ate at the Burger Shack and then went and saw the Clay Cooper's Show. And as for the girls, well, just nonsense as usual. :-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook: http://...
So, after smoking Britt's first CW board that she assembled, we gave it another try, replacing the pieces I fried with new ones, hoping that would fix all the issues. Well, it didn't. But it wasn't entirely a waste; we did come a step or two closer to putting together a fully functioning CW transceiver. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

The girls' friend Izzie performs at the 2017 Iowa State Fair in the Fiddlers' Contest; she did an outstanding job, placing second in her category. Then the girls happened to stumble upon Channel 13 News' Ed Wilson at the Fair and got on TV. Tiana was very excited, you can even seeing her dabbing at one point preceding the interview. ;-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...
***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** For our last meal from our latest Home Chef box, Tiana prepared the grilled steak salad with buttermilk dressing, with garlic bread and onions. As you may have gathered, it was just a very simple salad. The steak was delicious... but other than that, it wasn't anything extraordinary. Robin and I gave it a 5. Subscribe:
***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** Next meal from our latest box of Home Chef was the Weekday chicken quesadillas with Chihuahua cheese and pico de gallo.
