Mermaids have been depicted in Disney movies, movies, mythology and through out history. The 1st stories appeared in ancient Assyria, in which the goddess Atargatis transformed herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover.
Mermaids are sometimes associated with perilous events such as floods, storms, shipwrecks and drownings. Also have been associated with tempting men to fall in love with them.

Remember Antonio Bay of the coast of Oregon? How about Stevie Wayne from KAB radio? Remember the first time you actually realized The Fog could actually be creepy, frightening and fatal? Thanks to the Brilliance of John Carpenter and Debra Hill you just may not look Fog the same. The first time I saw it in the theaters, my friend and I exited the theater only to find a heavy fog had settled into South King County, Washington where I attended high school. When she dropped me off as we were saying our goodbyes outside halfway between her car and my front door we heard a strange noise from something hidden in "pea soup" fog that night. We grabbed each other as if embracing could somehow protect us. In later years we laughed about it, but it sure went a long way to the mystic and ambiance of the movie that night.
Join the discussion about the things that go bump in the fog and why simple weather events can instill so much fear. John Carpenter was a master at creating fearful tension with every day situations, but there are also relationship issues in the film that will be fun to discuss as well. See you there on Philmchology just beware!
What if you could determine the correct wire size for your project, save that information, edit, email, and export that same data? We heard from JuliaAshmun and Gayle Dunham of Dirty Dog Software (www.dirtydogsoftware.com), about the DC Wire Sizer app they developed for the iPhone and iPad, built on ABYC and NMEA standards.
We also discussed the recent news that a NOAA Coast Survey vessel has found a 19th century shipwreck of the City of Chester off the Golden Gate Bridge — again. This wreck is an interesting piece of California history, and its rediscovery points up how much technology has changed in recent years.
And we pointed listners to the ABYC award winning app "Boat Essentials" which was developed via a USCG recreational boating safety grant.

Our German Ancestry
Hosted by: Robert Schlattmann
Tonight I will share some more information about my ancestors. I try learning more whenever the time permits, but it is too expensive if one uses the jew owned ancestry websites, so I try searching on my own to glean any information that will eventually complete the puzzle. Some things are sad to discover for the first time. Check these links:
There is more here than you realize and this is a sensitive topic. Some of the things I say on the Radio Show are taboo in Germany.
Semper Paratus: Reflection on Luke 12:32-40
Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost
Besides helpful hints on water safety, we can learn a vital lesson from the U.S. Coast Guard. Their motto is “Semper Paratus.” But “Always Ready” is more than their motto; it is their way of life. And it has served them well through two centuries of hurricanes and shipwrecks, floods and wars. Living with the certain knowledge that potential peril is always looming can either paralyze or empower. Being always ready makes threats manageable. It empowers the Coast Guard to meet the inevitable with courage and competence. And that is Christ’s message to us in this week’s gospel: Semper Paratus… be Ready Always.
Today Doctor Prepper is pleased to welcome Michael Knight and Joshua Patterson from Get Ready Portland
Portland Preparedness Center owner Michael Knight fell in love with America (an American woman actually) and moved from New Zealand to the United States 20 years ago.
Prior to that he was a journalist (among other things) and covered numerous deadly storms and disasters, including shipwrecks and earthquakes.
Self-reliance and self-sufficiency is a Knight family tradition. Michael’s parents and grandparents believed in, and did their best to grow enough food in the summer to see themselves through the winter. Hunting was therefore a traditional way of putting meat on the table, and canning was an essential skill.
Joshua Patterson wears many hats at the Portland Preparedness Center, from developing our Website & Point of Sale System to Managing Store Operations and being right hand to Michael Knight, Joshua has been enthusiastically adding his talents and experiences to the Portland Preparaness Center while also operating his own small business Montavilla Computer Repair & Website Services out of our office as well.
“Growing up in Oregon, the act of being “ready” for the “big one” I think was always part of my parent’s family preparedness plan. In 1989 The Loma Prieta earthquake, hit San Francisco. I was 9 at the time and lived in Oregon City. My bedroom was an addon that was a build off of the 2nd story deck that rested on stilts. After the quake the “urgency” of getting prepared hit my family like a freight train, as we moved from the house where my bedroom was on stilts. (In fact I think I was never allowed to sleep in it again.)
Shipwrecks and other travel challenges offer real life depictions of what it can mean for fellow journeyers to choose to be for one another (i.e. altruism) or invested in their own self-interest. Beyond emergency airplane landings, cruise ship fires and other such unexpected crises what might it mean for strangers in our strange land of twenty-first century America to choose, on purpose, to be for one another, across the board?
In this episode, Anastasia draws upon principles our president appears to be promoting as values to set the tone of his forthcoming second presidential term; altruism, meaning one for all and all for one, having a high priority among them. But, asks Anastasia, is altruism a principle that Americans are genuinely ready for? Or, are other crises such as “9/11” still needed to bring home the point that “survival of the fittest” may mean an ever-growing awareness and practice of altruism before we take heed of the notion that, as Ben Franklin stated, “We must all hang together, lest we each hang alone.”
7:00 p.m.-- 7:30 p.m., following the on-air broadcast, Anastasia, again, takes the discussion to a deeper, more personal level with a call-in audience at 712.432.0600, access code 640883 (also recorded).
