My opinion time: My Hobbies

I do tenacity have three different hobbies that I bounce between. The first, and main hobby is Photography. The main type of pictures that I take are landscape, storms, clouds, and lightning. I also do some weddings, at our church but I am not the main photographer. If you want to see some of my storm pictures here is the link to my blog https://backyardstorms.wordpress.com.

My second hobby, is practicing playing the piano. Now I am not the greatest at playing the piano but I am getting there. Since there is not much of the piano to talk about; my third hobby is making things with a programable UNO R3. Right now I am trying to make a horn alarm that can detect if you passed by it or not.

But right now I am trying to learn some program languages. Then with the program knowledge, I can program into the UNO R3 the additional turn on horn when object is detected. That is my three main hobbies, and thank you for reading.

1question/1answer:  Aristotle’s main points in his Ethics to the average person

So the Question for to day is What are or how would you explain Aristotle’s main points in his Ethics to the the average person? First off Aristotle say’s that you should be virtuous. But then how do you become Virtuous? He then says to do Virtuous things. Then again if I need to virtuous to do virtuous things, so then what do I do? Now upon realizing the circle he was in he goes in further detail. that is in your upbringing you need to be taught to be virtuous, or risk of getting punished. With being taught to be virtuous you get into the habit of doing virtuous things. And thus the way to become virtuous.

He also say’s to have a good life was not just be as poor and friendless. He says to live a good life you don’t need to be poor but to be in the middle not rich or poor. So he says that pleasure is not every thing and that’s where he talks about friends. that is to have friends to help you along.

Conclusion, Aristotle says to be virtuous, and that you teach your kids that so that they can be virtuous as well. he say to have a good life you do not need to be poor or rich but in the mild. He also says that having a friend will help your life. Thank you for reading and have a great day.

2questions/2asnwers: allegory of the cave, and the “philosopher-king”

It’s 2 questions and 2 answers time. First question is  What was Plato’s point in his allegory of the cave? Second Question for today is, What qualities does Plato’s ideal monarch — the “philosopher-king” — possess?

Let’s get started with What was Plato’s point in the allegory cave. The allegory cave starts off with 5 prisoners’ bound together, with chains. They can’t move there head nor speak all they can see is the cave wall. Now behind them was the exit to the cave where the sun shows. now above that is a fire and a wall below that where the puppeteers show. The point Plato makes is that when lets say a puppeteers pop a book above the wall and then cast a shadow. Then the prisoners perceive that that is a book on the wall. But is there a book on the wall no . It is a shadow not the real object of the book. So he telling you when those prisoners’ are able to turn around and see the actual book. The truth will be know about where the book is and they would not want to go back. Here is a picture of the cave.

Now what about, Plato’s perfect city. This city is ruled by a philosopher king. This king can not have any family, or privet property. Actually no one can have private property. Than all the kids are raised in a state nursery. What he was trying to place was that if you can not own any thing than why steal for riches why gain more power if you can not own it. the reason for the state nursery was to make it where you do not know your family. So when your hiring for a business or giving in general , you would treat every one as family, and hire who is able to do the job, not if there family. Now there is much more to this but this is the general start of what he saw in a perfect city. Thank you for reading and if there is any thing wrong with this essay please feel free to tell me down below.

Comparison time

today we have two stories, both are about a father and son. The first story starts off in Holland, with the great Dr. Boekman, and his son. One day wile the son was helping out with his dad, he accidently gave the wrong thing to a paten. That turned out to be very poisonous if the patent took it. But luckily, Dr. Boekman found the mistake. The paten still died of his sickness, and the boy thought that he was going to be charged with murder. So he ran away, and went to the first person he thought look like a honest man, then asked him if he could come with him. Down by the water there was a boat that he was getting in, before he did this he gave the man a watch then told him to give this to a person in about a week. Back at home, the guy who had the watch gave it to his wife to take care of it till then. Later that night, a man from the dikes told him the water was rising, and that they needed his help. Unfortunately he fell off the dike and hit his head and now he can not think no more.

Ten years later, Hans goes to Dr. Boekman to see if he can come and help his father. Well the man does and he was able to do surgery, and release the pressure on his fathers head. And now he is sane, and awake. Of course, they ask him about the watch, then he tells the story of the man who told him to give it some one a week later. Dr. Boekman came in one day wile the were talking about the watch, and they showed him the initials on the watch. Upon realizing it was his sons watch, and hearing the story, he now knew that his son didn’t just leave him but fled in fear. They did find him, and of course they where over joyed.

Now the second story is a parable, told from Jesus, in Luke: 15:11-32. This story starts off with a son going to his father asking for his inheritance now. Once given, the son ran off into the world just so he could party and have the worlds fun. But once the money had run dry, all his fake friends left him. What made it worse was a famine in the land. So he started to work by feeding the hogs on some bodies farm. Wile feeding the hogs he would eat the husks that the pigs where eating. then it came to him,” when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,”. He goes back to his fathers house humbles him self and say’s” 19And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. 20And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. 21And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. 22But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.”

The difference between these two stories are minor. The start of these two stores start off with the child making a foolish mistake and left the home. One story was because he didn’t want to be called a murder, the other left home because he was being foolish. But when, they came home, both of them where not greeted with anger, but with passion and kindness. The one boy that went to live it out yes he is home but he has nothing. The other was an owner of a factory, and was still being wise with his time. The two things that are similar in this case is that both fathers greeted there sons with joy, and both sons made a foolish mistake. Thank you for reading and if there is any thing wrong with this essay please feel free to tell me down below.

Scotland

With a big glop of Fresh air, are vacation has just begone. First off where shall I go first there is the Scottish bakeries, castles, museums. Well the first things first lets go to the hotel. After every thing was hauled up to are room, we decided to go on a hike, because Scotland has several trails and every one there loves the trails and the view.

On the way back from the trail we noticed a guy dressed in a kilt, carrying bagpipes. Now the bagpipes is one of the main instrument’s of Scotland witch we though was cool. Now back at the hotel we where famished, so we decide to go out to eat. The food we found there was quite astonishing. The traditionally food of Scotland consisted of Haggis – Famous 16th Century Hogmanay Sheep-Stomach Sausage, Raspberry Cranachan for dessert, Cock-a-Leekie Soup for start of the dinner, and lastly oak cakes on the side.

After food was done, we headed over to the hotel to get a good nights rest. Morning came along and we decide to go to a castle called Inverlochy. of course along the way we see some kids playing a game, come to find out it is a Traditional game called Bools.

Once at the castle, wile there we learned of some of the history of the castle. Most of it was about the people that built it which was the Comin clan. Also to find was that in Scotland there would be these Clans made that are base from family ties. In each Clan there would normally be a chef in charge. These clans fill the highlands of Scotland and was very dominating in it. The way to make a living back then in Scotland was a soldier, domestic service, Crofting (or living on some ones land and farming it), farmer, and fisherfolk, shipbuilder, coal miner, weavers, and spinners.

Finally we arrive back At the airport, and back home was and that is the end of our vacation. Thank you for reading a small tour of the culture of Scotland.
