Vegan Cream

I just recorded a quick video on how to make vegan cream. It’s a bit rough around the edges. This is only the beginning.

Next time I’m going to get the softboxes out to light it properly and spend a bit more time getting the framing right.
I may even bother to run it through premier….

But for now. Let there be cream…and not moo moo juice.


Canon Lens on 60D Sharpness Tests.

I’ve been playing with my Sony A65V a little in the studio of late and I have been more than pleased with the results. I’ve got the Sony 18-135 that comes with the premium kit but I have also shot a little on the Sony 35mm F1.8.

The Results have been simply stunning.
I have still got my Canon 60D workhorse and I wanted to see how it fared up.

I shot a few shots of…you guessed it, my Cat in the studio this evening.

Pulling it into Lightroom and pixel peeping, I don’t think it’s quite there, at least not with the current Glass I have.
The 50mm F1.8 came closest to the Sony results. My Sigma 17-70mm wasn’t much chop.
I’ve got a Canon 18-135STM put aside at work for when my new iPad Mini arrives. Ill be interested to see how it goes. seem to think the lens fairs well compared to the Sigma 17-70.

Do you know the 2nd Angels Message?

Many who embraced the third message had not had an experience in the two former messages. Satan understood this, and his evil eye was upon them to overthrow them; but the third angel was pointing them to the most holy place, and those who had had an experience in the past messages were pointing them the way to the heavenly sanctuary. Many saw the perfect chain of truth in the angels’ messages, and gladly received them in their order, and followed Jesus by faith into the heavenly sanctuary. These messages were represented to me as an anchor to the people of God. Those who understand and receive them will be kept from being swept away by the many delusions of Satan. {EW 256.2}

I came across this sermon, probably the most clear presentation of the 2nd Angels message i’ve ever heard.

Come Out Of Her My People – Charles Fitch on Advent Audio

Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another


Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another… Mal 3:16

He was highly social, yet He possessed a reserved dignity that did not encourage undue familiarity. His temperance never led to bigotry or austerity…– {ST September 23, 1908 Par. 7}

Undue familiarity doesn’t mean no familiarity, are we not a church family?

Are we not brothers and sisters in Christ?

Jesus reproved self-indulgence in all its forms, yet He was social in His nature. He accepted the hospitality of all classes, visiting the homes of the rich and the poor, the learned and the ignorant, and seeking to elevate their thoughts from questions of commonplace life to those things that are spiritual and eternal. He gave no license to dissipation, and no shadow of worldly levity marred His conduct; yet He found pleasure in scenes of innocent happiness… {AH 503.2}


God does not mean that any of us should become hermits or monks and retire from the world in order to devote ourselves to acts of worship. The life must be like Christ’s life—between the mountain and the multitude. … When men take themselves out of social life, away from the sphere of Christian duty and cross bearing; when they cease to work earnestly for the Master, who worked earnestly for them, they lose the subject matter of prayer and have no incentive to devotion. Their prayers become personal and selfish. They cannot pray in regard to the wants of humanity or the upbuilding of Christ’s kingdom, pleading for strength wherewith to work. – {SC 101.1}

Sinful Flesh – A.T Jones

I’ve been really enjoying studying through “Lessons on Faith” of late. This small gem is the latest beauty I’ve unearthed.

There is a serious and very bothersome mistake which is made by many persons.
That mistake is made in thinking that when they are converted their old sinful flesh is blotted out.
In other words, they make the mistake of thinking that they are to be delivered form the flesh by having it taken away from them altogether.
Then when they find that this is not so, when they find that the same old flesh, with its inclinations, its besetments, and its enticements is still there, they are not prepared for it and so become discouraged and are ready to think that they never were converted at all.
And yet, if they would think a little, they ought to be able to see that that is all a mistake. Did you not have exactly the same body after you were converted that you had before? Was not that body composed of exactly the same material–the same flesh and bones and blood–after you were converted as that of which it was composed before? To these questions everybody will promptly say Yes. And plainly that is the truth.

The Feast Days

The Feast days

And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. And they talked together of all these things which had happened. And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. But their eyes were holden that they should not know him. And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad? And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days? And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not. Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. Luk 24:13-27

Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 1Co 5:7-8
