The Hopper House
A popular feature in local newspapers during the early 1950's was to use photos taken from a light plane flying over the many homesteads in the reading area, run them in the paper, and give the picture to the person who could correctly identify the house. The Oblong Oracle featured our house in November 1953, when my wife Sue was nine years old. This picture spurred this response from Mrs. Arthur The piece, as written and published November 7, 1953, is as follows: ________________________________________Dear Mr. Editor Your mystery farm this week was my home. My father, Harvey Hopper, built the house 50 years ago. I remember as a small child (am I telling my age?) I watched the entire structure being erected, climbing to the highest places, swinging my legs over, rolling in the bath tub before the legs were attached until my father caught me and gave me a lesson, where it was most effective, as to what little girls should, and should not do.

Bringing Dead Worms Back to Life
I’d been over the “look both ways” thing with my toddler, but it wasn’t sinking in. I was terrified he’d get away from me and shoot across a street. Okay, I was a little desperate, and more than a little exhausted. So maybe this was wrong, but when I saw the dead squirrel in the gutter I let him stop and look.
Clutterbug: A zine about stuff
Look around you right now: how much 'stuff' do you have? This zine is all about chucking stuff out, resisting buying new stuff, and looking at the processes of how we engage with stuff along the way. I consider the 'buy-ology' of why we desire and buy what we do in the first place and also 'flow': the exact opposite of the desire-acquire cycle. If you hoard stuff, or purge, this will interest you. DeclutteringRecently, I gave away or threw out a lot of stuff (and not just a few old clothes, but some expensive, supposedly important, stuff too – my SCUBA gear, the entire contents of my garage, a fancy Italian coffee machine, heaps of clothes, a space-station-like barbeque, my only TV, some furniture, and all the crap I was keeping for ‘one day’). My house is hardly Zen, but it, and my head, feel less cluttered. Desiring and acquiring I’ve only been in Australia seven years and I didn’t start out with much stuff; most of what I have I’ve acquired along the way. Since I’ve been getting

Labor Union Membership in the Light of Scripture
Peace Protestant Reformed Church
Neither the well-nigh universal acceptance of labor union membership by Western society nor the nearly unanimous approval of labor union membership by the churches settles the issue of membership in a union for the Christian workingman. The practice of the world is certainly not the standard of the life of the Christian. But neither is the example of the majority of churches the standard. This pamphlet is the revised text of a speech on the subject of labor union membership given in Lansing, Illinois under the auspices of the Evangelism Committee of the Peace Protestant Reformed Church of Lansing. The fact that the speech was given in a south suburb of that great center of labor unionism accounts, in large part, for the repeated references to Chicago.During my fourteen-year pastorate of a congregation in the Chicagoland area, I came to know firsthand the violence, threats, intimidation, beatings, maimings, murders, mayhem, ruthlessness, contempt for law, and corruption of the labor
The Shrink from Planet Zob: Psychiatry for a Mad World
The award winning book to make a mad world sane. Lyron exposes the mental state of humanity from the perspective of an alien psychiatrist, exploring mental illness, genetic psychopathy and the psychology behind the big global issues - war, poverty, environment, religion, corporate greed, media, education, politics. Combined with a funny story-line Lyron offers hope with a radical new solution. We have all thought "the world's gone mad". Now, here in one book is the evidence. Jake Lyron presents insights on the human condition which have hitherto been the preserve of elite psychiatrists. Nearly 300 references provide evidence to back up the idea that the world really has gone mad. Misconceptions around mental illness are dealt with in the first few chapters. From there, Jake exposes the psychological workings of the big global issues of our day - war, poverty, the environment, corporate greed, religion, animal welfare, corrupt politics, distorted media, education and more.In 2012 th
Empathism: A Short Psychological Analysis of Social Media
A short explanation of the motivation behind social media sharing and why we post what we post. The creation of modern social media has unintentionally bred an air of disconnection from the world. In this paper I explain the many ways in which we attempt to stop this feeling of loneliness and I put forth that social media's main purpose besides revenue generation is the transference of empathy.

David Francis Jeffery
Twenty explorations of hate and love, from the point of view of a man well versed in both. This book of short essays (for that is really what it is) was from a much larger work that I no longer possess. Once upon a time I had a bad hair day and threw out every hand written manuscript I owned. At that point, HA/VE was one of them. I had started typing it out but only managed these twenty when I had my hissy fit. I've no idea now whether these were the best or not but they've all that remains of the original 50 essays. I hope you get something out of them and, if you happened to have worked in a recycling plant in early 2003 and came across a red notebook with this stuff in it, let me know if any of the others are any good. Thanks.

My Life Before & Without Boomers & Yuppies
First of all, this very short book is autobiographical. Written by a man who lived the title and to this day does not appreciate what these generations are doing to our society. Many others have expressed their opinions in much the same way so the author realizes that he is not alone in his negative opinions of them. He is not trying to change their ways. He realizes that that is impossible. When I originally came up with the idea for writing about boomers and yuppies, I had the vision of a book of around 80,000 or so words. As it progressed, I began to realize that I really didn’t have that much to say on the subject of LIFE BEFORE BOOMERS & YUPPIES, my first title. My thoughts and ideas also started to take on a life of their own as they always do when I write creatively. As my thought processes changed, so did the words flowing onto the paper. (On the monitor actually.) Consequently, the title no longer fit so it became MY LIFE BEFORE & WITHOUT BOOMERS & YUPPIES. A more fitting

The Seven Shades of Darkness
In every single waking moment we make simple choices that empower either a higher or lower reality for our lives. Much of the associated thinking taking place without our knowing. The Seven Shades of Darkness looks at the many reasons we in those moments consciously or unconsciously choose to walk the lower path. The path that takes us into the proverbial valley of the shadow of death. Within the context of this book "Shades of Darkness" is roughly analogous with Jung's idea of "The Shadow" and Freud's Unconscious.The manuscript covers seven of these shadows or dark sides of our being which I refer to as “The Seven Shades of Darkness”. These shades are not based on any esoteric script or religious view or psychological treatise. They merely are my own formulation of seven differing subconscious mentalities which we ought to be cognizant of in our daily interactions. The Seven Shades are The Devil (desperation), The Victim (victim mentality), The Enforcer (guilt/religious conformit
