Chondra Pierce- Still Laughing After All These Tears
This is a wonderful 8 disc set of Chondra Pierce at her funniest! Each DVD contains a full concert, including a brand new concert taped in 2015! Chondra tackles some tough subjects with humor and tongue in cheek dialogue. She offers up some of her funniest and sometimes embarrassing experiences and then brings it around to how to apply the particular experience to our walk with Jesus and how we can be effective Christians in this crazy world. I love how easily she goes from one story to another, sometimes breaking into song, always willing to laugh at herself and sometimes the audience. Some of the DVDs include:
I particularly loved the segment in disc 7 when she was describing how she broke into the tv market. At one point, she was on the Wanda Sykes show. She read an email that was sent in response to the show, where the writer blasted her for not calling Ms Sykes out for living the lesbian lifestyle. She explained that she had enough time to chat for 2 ½ minutes with Wanda, who was very kind and friendly. She said her job was not to judge, as God would have plenty of time to do that, but to meet and love her. She knew that was why she was there. What a great witness! She called us out as not always being a good witness around non believers and her reasoning was sound in my opinion. Sometimes I think we do things automatically without thinking how they are perceived by others. It doesn’t paint the grace and mercy that God has given us. But we are given that mercy from God as long as we are willing to give the same mercy to others in return.

We have 2 dogs that we love dearly as members of our family. One is Frosty, our West Highland Terrier, and then there is Duke , our German Shepherd pup. I say pup but he’s about 80 pounds and 2 years old. He’s fiercely protective of our yard and his people. That being said, our neighbor has a dog that bounds from the house straight for the fence, yipping and carrying on. Each time he does this our Duke goes to the fence and defends his territory. We’ve used many techniques to remedy this with no luck, as the other dog is still allowed to challenge without reprimand from his owner. I had high hopes that we’d be able to keep Duke from going to the fence by using the Pet Resolve Dog Training Collar with Remote. I was offered a collar for a discounted price in exchange for a fair review. I tried without success to set up the collar and finally tried contacting the company. No customer service chat, no answer at their phone number. I sent an email and was called a while later. The representative was quite helpful in walking me through the directions, which were quite different from what was on the little usage manual included. I would never be able to do this again on my own and I’m pretty savvy about stuff like that. I was able finally to get the collar working and tried it out on Duke but found that it had to be fairly tight on his neck to make good contact. If I shaved his neck hair short it might work better but it was sporadic and not what I expected. It’s a very good quality collar and is supposed to work while swimming, etc. There is a test light (plastic odd shaped piece) that comes in the kit, but no explanation that I could find for it. I would have loved for this to have worked better, but it’s got some issues that need to be worked out, such as even longer prongs for larger dogs with long fur, better directions, and better customer support.

I enjoy making crafts with my scan and cut. Since it’s the Christmas season, I am working on some Christmas gifts using my Angel Crafts White Vinyl Roll. I really like this vinyl because it comes on a roll, so if I’m working on a lengthy project like a sign it will just keep going.
It measures at 12 feet by 1 foot and it is 3 mil thick so it’s made to hold up well, whether you use it for indoor or outdoor use. It has a 2 1/2 inch core so it will roll up nicely when finished. The rolled vinyl comes in a 12’ by 12” White roll or a 9″ by 12′ Black roll. It is proudly made in the USA and will work in a Cricut, Silhouette, Brother Scan and Cat, or most any other cutter.
I made a Charger Plate with a few different designs on it and I was very pleased with how well it worked on my projects. I don’t have time to worry about if my vinyl will release or if it has enough adhesive to last- that’s why I’m very pleased with Angel Crafts White Vinyl Roll!
