When Will They Ever Learn (standard acoustic song)

Hello Grafted In Reader,

Today is Thursday, August 25, 2022 in my corner of blog land. A few things are on my mind and being shared with you:

First, if you are a curious learner, visit,

This website features an article of the week, and an archive of collected articles over the past seven years.

I learned from one of the recent articles posted that the virus Monkeypox was discovered by Danish scientists in 1958. In the early 1970s, there were 70 cases of this virus found in people living in the U.S. The carrier were believed then to be pet prairie dogs.

Mostly, the virus has been confined to West and Central Africa according to the article.

Other articles archived include:

The History of Memorial Day

Where did the Custom Of The Christmas Tree Originate

The Risks of CyberWar

The Death Of The Gas Station

I am working on a new book that will be faith-based historical fiction. It is titled, Human Being Human Doing.

Lives featured include: teen lobbyist Greta Thunberg, Donald Trump, King David, Justin Martyr, and several more. This will be an e-book, published on Smashwords and will be informative, reflective and entertaining. 

I hope to publish in March 2023.

I am currently reading selected Psalms from the Sacred Scriptures. Psalm twenty-three reminds me that the LORD is our shepherd, we are provided for in many ways, we can by choice be God's child forever.

Thanks for stopping by today. Comments on this post, or previous posts are welcomed.

Incidentally, if you would like to read some fiction stories by me, visit:

I pray the presence of YHVH will accompany you always!

Summertime 2022

    Hello Grafted In Readers,

August 1, 2022, Monday, in my corner of blog land. I have been busy with writing projects, and was spurred to return after a several month absence by a recent comment! I am glad you are still reading me on occasion.

I continue to post stories at

A new story is pending publishing as we visit.

I am also working on a self collection of faith-based stories to publish in Spring 2023 on my side of the equator.

My grandchildren are doing fine. My wife is doing fine, and our children are doing fine for the most part.

I have been reading an informative, lengthy title this year titled,

The New Christian Zionism, by Gerald McDermott and others.

It is published by IVP Academic.

My piano gig continues most weekends at the Voyageur Restaurant in St. Clair, MI. I play most Thursday through Saturday evenings, and late Sunday afternoon.

Introduce yourself if in the area and stop by. The fish dinner and French Onion Soup are my faves on their menu.

Not much else to share with you this visit. I will be back in early September to share something new that has been learned.

May the presence of Yahweh be with us till then and always.
