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

Got to take my first trip to Alaska for a WSLCA conference. During the day I got to explore and during the "night" was when I'd work. It would only be dark for really 30 minutes before it'd get light again. But so, I had plenty of time to get familiar with the area of Anchorage. Tired the 49th State Brewing Company - it was all pretty good and service was nice, so I definitely recommend it. I
My first field day, did not know what to expect, I ran my radio for the natural power points then we went back to the 100 watt radio inside the EOC. I made use of my 20ft PVC mast, it worked well. The 20 meter dipole antenna was resonate with out me having to make any adjustments. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

It's the day before Field Day, and I've been wanting to make this for awhile: my very own, homemade antenna mast. It's made from PVC pipe and couplers, and then 200ft of clothesline for guy-wires. This antenna mast is compact - all 20ft will condense down into a bag. I go through the idea and all the steps of how I made it and put it all together. Subscribe: http://... Check out our site:
I hook up and adjust my voltage regulator for my King Solar 60watt solar panel. When the panel is open fully, it does over 18 volts. So if you run your radio on that for too long, it'll damage the radio. So I talk about getting the most out of your King Solar panel with your radio. Subscribe: http://...

Britty and I head up to Creston to check out the SWIARA Swap Meet in Creston, IA, but end up primarily playing the Vive. It was my first time ever trying any virtual reality platform, and I gotta say it was incredible. I only got to play Raw Data & Island 359, but both were phenomenal. I don't play video games much anymore, but VR brings back a lot of the excitement I had for gaming when I was
The day of Jacob and Nikki's graduation party finally arrived, and the American DJ Mini Dekker LZR gets brought out. The party's theme was glow-in-the-dark, with black lights, glow sticks, and fluorescent face paint and clothing. It was quite the production, and everyone had a great time. The laser turned out pretty well... however, still a little underwhelming. Congratulations, Nikki and Jake!
We didn't get much footage of our third day in Chicago, but we got plenty on our last day, spent at the Museum of Science & Industry. We had been there before, but we never had enough time to really enjoy it. The kids really enjoyed the flight simulator - in fact, they went twice. Tiana and Brittain also sat on the back of a cow, so I think they really enjoyed the day. :-) It was a nice little
Our first full day in Chicago: we take the subway into the heart of the city, and I pay $20 for a shoe shine by the one and only Shoe Shine King. I'll never live that down. ;-) We took a trolley tour of the city with our guide Daniel. We ate at one of the restaurants recommended on the tour: Portillo's. About half of us were disappointed, but the rest, especially Tiana and Britt, really enjoyed
This year's road trip to Chicago, Illions. The ride there was crazy as always, and our stop to eat at Pappadeaux was eventful - Robin & Mike get into it ;-) and we found a poor, dead baby Michelangelo. :-( And plenty of crazy experiences on our subway rides.

I gave the girls the job of unboxing and getting my new American DJ Mini Dekker LZR and LTS-2 lighting stand set up and running... Not sure what happened leading up to that point. ;-) But we finished setting it up and I got to test out several settings and play around with it... in summary, I'm a little underwhelmed with it, but for $125, I suppose I couldn't expect much more. Plus, for me buying
***Click here to get $30 off of your first order of Home Chef http://... *** Our last meal from our Home Chef box was brown butter shrimp with smoked Gouda grits. Tiana was out of commission that day, so Brittain was a substitute and did a pretty good job. It was a great recipe and probably one of my favorites. Subscribe: http://...

So the whole family - the four of us, Autumn & Mike, and Grandma Teresa - gathered round for a fun night of Pie Face. It was pretty fun, even though I was reluctant to play at all. ;-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://...

Brittain finished her board - a little messy as far as the soldering job went, but it seemed like she got it all right... Just backwards? The tones were opposite when I tried to transmit some CW, but with a little further testing, it smoked. It was my fault though - the power adapter I used was supposed to be 12volt, but it was in actuality 14 volts. Seems that is what fried it. It was soldered
Jacob and Brittain got their special 40 meter, QRP CW pixie kits in the mail, and since I've got my new great soldering station, I had the kids assemble them right away. It was Brittain's first time ever building something like this, so it's a little rough around the edges... But so far so good. We'll see how it turns out. Subscribe: http://...

I made a data cable previously to hook the Yaesu FT-817ND radio up to my laptop. and this time around I'm making one for the iPad.
