Video: Charging iPhone with 9-Volt Battery

The thrill of “thundersnow” wore off quickly once I lost power this evening. It went off just when Coronation Street’s Pat Phelan was lying to his project manager about Eileen being sick. I heard a boom, and then my Roku shut off. There would be no relaxing with BritBox tonight. Well, now I’ll spend time charging my phone and iPad instead of enjoying television.

Anyway, I figured I’d better do something useful with my phone while it was still charged. That’s when I remembered reading on Twitter about charging your cell phone with a household battery. This was the first video I found, and it looks easy. It uses a 9-volt battery. However, I’m sure there are videos about using other batteries.

Good luck and stay safe.

So, I had to see St. Wilfrid’s versions of the scenes from the movie. They did an awesome job. It definitely put me into the Christmas spirit.

When I wrote Part 1, I hadn’t finished watching this episode. Now I have, and I realize that it fit with the message I heard in church.

Manchurian Candidate (2004) with Denzel Washington, Jeffrey Wright, & Lieberman Schreiber

History has been repeating daily since DT was elected. It won’t end well especially for Americans like me who understand the danger of a DT administration. So, if you don’t understand how a candidate can be “groomed” for an election, watch this movie.

Why Fox News Has an Issue with Memory Loss

So this morning, I was greeted by this on my Facebook news feed. Fox News is saying that President Obama did not capture Bin Laden. This “pundit” (I won’t call him a reporter) wants to credit Bush.
