Discussion in 'New Members Welcome' started by Jonathan E Gardner, Apr 4, 2017.

  1. My name is Jonathan Gardner and I am 67 years old and I live in a nursing home.
    I came from a mainline denominational church Episcopalian.
    I had no siblings.
    I went to church and Sunday school.
    I was born and raised in the midwest near Chicago.
    I came from an unstable home my parents were both mentally ill so I lived with my grandparents most of my childhood and into my teens I had asthma and I wound up in Denver Colorado at a hospital which just happened to be Jewish.
    Eventually, I surrendered my life to Christ

    Welcome Jonathan E Gardner to CFS!
    It's a joy to have you here and we look forward to fellowship with you.
    (You know what I ain't even mad about not being first to reply. Over here in Malaysia this was posted at 3:10 AM so unless I could've accessed CFS in my sleep, I was at a clear disadvantage. :p Just wait until someone closer to my timezone posts and watch me be first FCJ and Cturtle.) :cool:

  8. Dear Brother thanks for the warm welcome and I am partial to dogs but cats have a mind of their own.

  9. Definitely didn't stay up late, but it's not that early here either; it's already 10 AM. I guess since I am on holiday that would be considered early? ;)
  10. Yikes.... I misread your post :( I thought it was 3 am right now your time... silly me :)

  11. Hahaha well then it's a good thing I chose a dog picture. I'm more of a cat-person(I still do like dogs) and so I don't have that many dog pictures. I think God made me save that one just for you. ;) I'll be sure to find more pictures with dogs, to use when I'm conversing with you brother. :LOL:

  12. So just out curiosity, what time is it there where you are? (It's 10.30 AM here) :)

  13. It is 12:25 am right now. But it looks like it was 10:30 pm when you asked :)

  14. So we're just about 12 hours apart, meaning I am on the other side of the world to you(pretty awesome). :D

  15. Fun fact: While all you guys are comparing time and time zones, did you know that the current 'time' system originates in Greenwich,England. There is actually a spot (a metal circle in the ground) where you can stand (I have and it's awesome) where all our 'time' is measured from.


    So...hello Jonathon E Gardner, it's 1:20pm here in the UK.

  16. Hi Annie! Yes, I did learn about the Greenwich meridian in geography back in school. I've forgotten much, but I know there's also the international date line which is directly opposite the Greenwich line and it is the marker to the beginning of a new day(on the calendar). Pretty neat stuff. (y)

    Btw, it's 8.35 PM here now(for comparison).
    So it would seem Annie, that you're about equidistance from Cturtle and I. :LOL:

  17. LOL, it's crazy, but at least I know that you're having dinner, while I've just eaten lunch:love:
