Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
--Philippians 4:8 KJV Bible

I have many and varied interests, and I try to dabble in as many of them as time permits. My interests include Bible study, astronomy, space exploration, music (singing and playing), art, science fiction and fantasy.

Bible Translations

In my personal Bible studies I normally read from the New American Standard Bible (NASB), a translation which is Copyright 1960, 1962, 1963, 1968, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1975, 1995 by The Lockman Foundation.

For the purposes of publication, I may use the World English Bible (WEB), a Public Domain, Modern English translation of the Holy Bible developed by Rainbow Missions, Inc. URL:

I may also use the King James Version of the Bible (KJV Bible), which is also in the Public Domain, as well as other Public Domain translations.
