Happy Father's Day

My Mom and I were talking about Dad. I happen to mention that Dad did believe and use physical punishment to the surprise of my mother. Yes my father did use his leather belt (for want of something else lying around) on my brother and me. I don't remember the particulars but knowing my dad, it has something to do with treating other people right. Any way, my mother is surprised because physical punishment in the family is rare. As grand parents, my parents never used it. I guess not resorting to corporal punishment comes with maturity and evolving parental ideas.

We remember my dad for his gentle nature. His caring nature as a physician is attested by his patients in the community. After his death in 2003, folks in the community still mention him and remember him for visiting their homes when a family member is sick. Those were the days when doctors still make house calls.

So I pray for all fathers this day. May the love and the blessings of our Lord, Jesus Christ, come to you. Peace.

America Must Evolve Fast Or Die

This was a music festival concert venue in Las Vegas, Nevada. A shooter in the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel across the general area opened fire then shot himself. He killed 59 people in what reports call the biggest mass shooting in modern American history to date.
America must learn from the lessons of previous mass shootings otherwise this tragedy will happen again. Reasonable animals evolve when their lives and the life of the pack or group are threatened. They change how they face the problem and not just move on. They don't dismiss reality. They recognize the problem and listen to reason. For those who say nothing can be done, you're wrong. There is something America can do. It is not premature to talk about gun control. This is the time to talk about it.

GnuCash In Arch Linux

I updated a number of packages today and Gnucash won't start. I immediately went to the Archlinux website to see what's happening. I can't seem to find the package in the community repo. There's a thread in AUR on how to compile Gnucash by hand no AUR helpers.

But I tried to compile goffice and webkit2, needed packages for Gnucash-git. No. It doesn't work for me.

Funny but I'm now using my Android Tablet with Gnucash app to record transactions. This is working. We need to have the stable GnuCash back. This is a stop gap on my part. Transactions don't stop when computers stop. Please don't make me go back to paper.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Poster

The Last Jedi is coming this December 2017. I can't wait. My guess is we can watch it later in the Christmas season or even later than the New Year 2018. The Filipino Film Festival season usually starts the 15th December up to January 7th. Only Filipino films are shown in theaters. Unless there's a special run, we would see it much later.
