Hi, I’m Glenn. I write practical books from a Christian viewpoint which are available on Amazon. I was a Professional Engineer and worked for several companies. Traveled a lot in the United States and Canada for Pharmaceutical and Dairy control system installations. I have tried several types of religions in my life but I will not be converting again.

Suicide. There is Help!

Photo by Kat Smith on Pexels.com

I’ve considered suicide when I was young but I rejected it. There is help from Jesus and from people willing to talk to you. People can be abusive and life can be cruel. Religion organized by man can be a negative experience and can actually cause you depression. Many situations can destroy your dreams and hopes. That doesn’t need to be the end of your life. Time is on your side because it can change everything. Talk to someone who can help you with how you feel. Try the following phone numbers with trained people who care available. They can help you with practical things that can change your circumstances.

Suicide Prevention Helpline: 988

Veterans Suicide Hotline: 1-800-273-8255

Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life! You don’t need a phone to talk to him and he can help you where it counts. Try talking to him.

Trialjectory For Cancer?

Glenn

8/01/2022

I joined a free cancer trial program called Trialjectory. They look for any cancer trial that will match your cancer and match you with resources to help you. It seems to require a lot of work from the patient and it minimizes the workload of your oncologist. Trialjectory literature implies that it is very difficult for doctors to be aware of every relevant trial and that Trialjectory tries to fill that gap. I plan to give it a shot and run anything that matches by my oncologist. I had one match so far in Massachusetts which is quite some distance for me but the doctors will check if it is a good match. It may not be medically appropriate so there is no need to get excited yet. There are a number of organizations that provide help with housing and transportation. I’d like a few extra years of life to complete various projects but ultimately everything is in God’s hands. I’ve said my prayers and put my faith in Jesus so I will not lose either way. http://amazon.com/author/glennsellnow

Do you need “Money”?

Photo by Javier Mendoza on Pexels.com

7/28/2022

I just published a new ebook called “Money”. I figure everybody needs money so this might be a good book to read. The ebook will be free on September 30, 2022, from Amazon. The paperback version will be available in a few days. Check out a sample reading at:

http://amazon.com/author/glennsellnow

Here is a brief quote from the book:

“Should you read this book? This book will help the following types of people:

  1. Social Security recipients.
  2. Disabled.
  3. Unemployed.
  4. People with a low income.
  5. College students.
  6. Frugal rich people.
  7. Anyone who doesn’t like to waste a nickel.
  8. Rich people who want to help out someone in need.

Some people have said that I have a sense of humor in my books. That may be true but I suspect my mind just works a little bit differently. Humor and reality are fused together in my thought processes. Reality is funnier than fiction sometimes and that’s not really my fault.”

Cancer

Cancer

I have stage four cancer and odds are pretty good that it will kill me. Even if I live long enough to die of old age, I will still surely die. I plan to put up a good medical fight against my cancer because I am not dead just yet and there are things I would like to do. My grandmother had cancer for about 30 years but she died in her late nineties. Perhaps I will match her longevity but it doesn’t worry me because I have faith in Jesus. I wrote a book about my cancer experience which I plan on keeping updated for as long as possible. I think it has some useful information for anyone with cancer. The book is called “Cancel Cancer” and is available on Amazon. I also make it free occasionally through an Amazon author program. Check out all my books at: http://amazon.com/author/glennsellnow

I will be adding additional useful posts under the menu heading “Emergency Help”. These will include both information and telephone numbers that will help people with problems. I plan to keep this blog page continuously updated.

Superstition

7/12/2022

Superstition in Christians:

It concerns me that there are superstitious beliefs floating about among the minds of Christians. These beliefs do not promote Christ. The Bible should be our guide when dealing with controversial subjects.

Conspiracy theories involving aliens, false angelic visions, Alexa, or political figures do not glorify God. There may be aliens, angelic visions, or so-called politicians, but Christ needs to be your guide when judging the validity of these untrustworthy sources. The Bible is truth and all these other sources need to be compared against this spirit of truth.

Discussing wild sources of information from TV or the internet will not encourage people to follow Christ. Encouraging people to follow Christ is the job of Christians. God knows more than what is in the Bible and he will make these other things crystal clear to us in his time.

Even the Bible can be confusing if not compared to itself. Most people do not read the original Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic text directly because learning these languages is too time-consuming. We rely on translations of the Bible which were made using the translation reasoning of men. Some things are so simple that mistranslation is difficult and translations can be compared to each other to see if they agree. The Old Testament is problematic for some people because they read their own personal beliefs into translated text and make up their own false belief systems. The text is complex and written for specific groups of people in many cases.

God is more complex than the information presented in the Bible but he will not violate his Word. Anything violating the Bible should be rejected by Christians provided they have a full understanding of the Bible. I don’t believe anyone knows everything, especially me so naturally there will be disagreements. Pride in your Biblical knowledge may not be the best thing in the world if it puts you in a rigid religious mindset.

God bless!

Life Insurance!

Glenn

7/14/2022

Life Insurance Rate Increase.

Mercer Life Insurance raised my rates by approximately $15 per month. I obtained this life insurance through the IEEE. It was a fair deal. Fifteen dollars per month extra per month is not that much in this inflationary period, however, they did not give a clear explanation of why my specific rates were raised. That is horse manure in my opinion. They gave a very vague choice of possible reasons that my rates may have been changed.

I would like to know the exact reason my life insurance rate went up. You need to know what you are paying for when you buy a product. I currently have some severe diseases and my wife may need my life insurance coverage to pay the bills after I am gone. I am just venting. Many people have no insurance but I paid for this insurance since I was in college and I would like to know exactly why my rates were raised. Vague lists of possible reasons do not seem sufficient from a reputable company.

Check out some of my books at http://amazon.com/author/glennsellnow for more exciting commentary.

God bless!

Police 911?

Police 911

How would you like the police to pound on your door in the middle of the night? My wife got up to answer the door because she couldn’t get me to do it. I thought it was just someone playing a joke. It turns out the Wauwatosa police were at the door and they said someone had dialed 911 from our landline telephone. My wife sweetly but loudly said “Glenn, would you please come here?”

I staggered out of bed in my underwear and said “What the hell is it now?” before turning the hallway corner into two cops. We explained to the Wauwatosa policemen that we were all asleep and no one had dialed 911. They were not easy to convince of this fact but eventually, they agreed to leave.

It turns out the telephone company back then had an external wiring flaw that caused our phone to externally dial 911 randomly and hang up. Nice. The police checked with the phone company to confirm this wonderful fact. It took the telephone company at least a week to correct the problem. The police had us sign some type of paper that said there would be no response to 911 calls from our address until the telephone company corrected the problem. We thought this was a stellar idea and agreed to their plan.

God bless!

Chemo Lights Out?

Photo by Kindel Media on Pexels.com

7/05/2022

I had chemo today and talked to one of the doctors. While I was talking to the doctor in the small windowless exam room, the lights lost power. She said, “not to worry because we have backup generators”. The lights came on after about 20 seconds. Then the lights went out again. I said, “you had backup generators”. Eventually, the lights did come back on. All the doctors have given the green light to my catheter relocation operation at the Hospital. It just needs to be timed carefully around my chemo infusions.

God bless!

The Ostomy Vender Strikes!

The company that supplies my Ostomy appliance parts stopped supplying some critical preparation components. They didn’t tell me in advance but substituted other components without warning. That is not cool because putting on my Ostomy appliance is bad news due to the surrounding skin condition. They were also very stingy on the quantity supplied. I think I can make it work after they increase the quantity up to insurance maximum. Its very important to me to have a functional appliance because my alternative is to go to the hospital and crap on the floor until they fix the problem.
Early attempts at Ostomy appliances were worse than what I have. Must have been a super bummer.
