Isaiah scroll


                                        
The Hill of Pots

The sand wind blown nothing said for thousands of years,
Nothing dead for thousands of years but the word of Him,
Who was, and is, and will be the sand tomorrow.

How can man ignore this and His dead who are not dead.
Who was once them and continues to be, ever changing like the dunes.
Who comes back from the hill and gives us warmth.

In my simple mind and tangled life I know Him.
But He knows me better and we laugh together.
The sand changes and is the same. It is here.

It is here and we are the spun powder moving and changing too.
But all at once to form and uphold the work of Him.
Broken vessels spill the Word and no one knows.

Why shouldn't we laugh together, the sand and I?
Verily nothing matters even when the sand spills again and again.
From today and from tomorrow we live on. We die to become Him.

The Hill of Pots is a location of religious historical significance found near Qumran.
Here are the reported oldest remains of the written bible referred to as the Dead Sea Scrolls.

This Deal

IBM

The company recently announced that its research division and its partners had succeeded in creating the world’s first 7-nanometer (nm) computer chips. These chips so small that they are 1,400 times smaller than a single strand of human hair. According to the company, the alliance with Globalfoundries, Samsung and others achieved a scaling improvement of nearly 50% over the currently most advanced technology.

Green

Untouched by human hands - unedited

Kitchen acquarium


The perfect first fish for children and adults
The less you feed them the longer they live
Brine shrimp is high in protein - just a nibble a day
add succulent type plants for decoration
A Beta lives alone

Lush look

Pluto fly by


The new image of Pluto, taken from the New Horizons probe on Monday.


 
About 13 hours after its closest approach to Pluto, New Horizons phones home, signalling that it has survived its 49,000km/h (31,000mph) blitz through the planet's system. The signal took four and a half hours to travel the 4.88bn km (3bn miles) back to Earth at light speed. With 99% of the data gathered during the encounter still on the spaceship, New Horizons' survival was critical to the mission
