2009 Year in Review

12/30/2009 5:32:26 AM

I guess it’s a bout time that I write a little bit about our year in review.

Sally & I were discussing our highlights and lowlights of 2009 and we’re working on the top 10 issues.


On Nov 2009 I was able to pay off the home equity loan in full! The “HEL” loan had ballooned up to 18K at one point. We were using this loan as an excuse for spending more than we were making.

I only have a little visa to pay off. I fixed up my “hearse.” The 73’ Ford truck was my parents’ truck from years ago. When DAD passed away in 1978, I bought this keepsake for to remain in the family.

In order to be debt free we merely had to BUDGET our money. I use Microsoft excel to budget the figures.

We are lifetime members of Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University. We first attended a class back in 2006. We used the turtle method as opposed to the gazelle method. Those who have participated in FPU would understand.

Our Lutheran church here in Topeka has offered the course earlier this year. They’re planning on offering another course in February 2010. I will try to make all the classes, but it’s not imperative we attend, as we’re all ready life time members.

We purchased a DVD from FPU with all 13 classes. One can take all these classes from home, but it’s better to share your knowledge with others.

Sharing FPU is like sharing the good news of Jesus.


After I retired from the government, I wanted sometime to do.

Back in Nov 2002 or there about, I remember sitting down with Sally and I asked her, what we should name ourselves.

We came upon the Yahoo powered domain


The full address is:

Now being the computer nerd that I am, I was able to find all these good links for our site. Visit us online for more details.

Sally & I are NOT into sexting. Enough all ready with this technical stuff! Remember Tiger Woods.

If you ever see my 95’ Toyota, take a gander at the sign.

I’m currently writing use MS word and I plan on posting this to my public blog.


Sally & I are Independent RELIV distributors.

Reliv is a patented food product that comes in a powder form in a can. We first became distributors some years ago. If you want to learn more about this wonderful business, please call us or email us for more information. Visit our web also.

I’m still retired and loving it.


So many projects, so little time! Here’s are SOME of my TODO lists.

5112 ½ SW 33rd ST – upkeep-

rearrange living room
Madeline ready home
Clean house J
Staple coax cable from my bedroom
Wash clothes – always- (where’s our maid?)
Share our FAITH through our web.
Fix spa

These are just some of my to-do items

Year End In review


Well, another year is almost over .. THANK GOD!

I love to watch all these year-end TV folks talk about the 2009 year in review. CBS Sunday morning ran a year in review of the deaths in 2009. The individuals I was able to quickly write down were:

Ted Kennedy
Michael Jackson
Farah Faucett
Ed McMahon
Patrick Swazie

To name a few.

I’m pleased to announce that

Myron Holter

Is NOT on the list.

Stimulus Church


Genesis 47:13-27

I would love to give the Pastor of this predominantly black church in
Virginia a hug and a high five. This guy is obviously a leader
Perhaps we should each decide who our
real leader is...It is amazing to see that very little has
changed in 4,000 years.
Good morning, brothers and sisters; it's always a delight to see
the pews crowded on Sunday morning, and so eager to get into
God's Word. Turn with me in your Bibles, if you will to the 47th
chapter of Genesis, we'll begin our reading at verse 13, and go
through verse 27.
Brother Ray, would you stand and read that great passage for us?
Thank you for that fine reading, Brother Ray... So we see that
economic hard times fell upon Egypt , and the people turned to
the government of Pharaoh to deal with this for them. And Pharaoh
nationalized the grain harvest, and placed the grain in great storehouses
that he had built. So the people brought their money to Pharaoh, like a
great tax increase, and gave it all to him willingly in return for grain. And
this went on until their money ran out, and they were hungry again.
So when they went to Pharaoh after that, they brought their
livestock -their cattle, their horses, their sheep, and their donkey -
to barter for grain, and verse 17 says that only took them through
the end of that year..
But the famine wasn't over, was it? So the next year, the people
came before Pharaoh and admitted they had nothing left, except
their land and their own lives. "There is nothing left in the sight
of my lord but our bodies and our land. Why should we die before
your eyes, both we and our land? Buy us and our land for food,
and we with our land will be servants to Pharaoh." So they
surrendered their homes, their land, and their real estate to
Pharaoh's government, and then sold themselves into slavery
to him, in return for grain. What can we learn from this, brothers
and sisters?
That turning to the government instead of to God to be our provider
in hard times only leads to slavery? Yes.. That the only reason
government wants to be our provider is to also become our master?
But look how that passage ends, brothers and sisters! Thus Israel
settled in the land of Egypt , in the land of Goshen .. And they gained
possessions in it, and were fruitful and multiplied greatly." God
provided for His people, just as He always has! They didn't end up
giving all their possessions to government, no, it says they gained
possessions! But I also tell you a great truth today, and an ominous
one. We see the same thing happening today - the government today
wants to "share the wealth "once again, to take it from us and redistribute
it back to us. It wants to take control of healthcare, just as it has taken
control of education, and ration it back to us, and when government
rations it, then government decides who gets it, and how much, and
what kind. And if we go along with it, and do it willingly, then we will
wind up no differently than the people of Egypt did four thousand years
ago - as slaves to the government, and as slaves to our leaders.
What Mr. Obama's government is doing now is no different from what
Pharaoh's government did then, and it will end the same. And a lot of
people like to call Mr. Obama a "Messiah," don't they? Is he a Messiah?
A savior? Didn't the Egyptians say, after Pharaoh made them his slaves,
"You have saved our lives; may it please my lord, we will be servants to Pharaoh"?
Well, I tell you this -
I know the Messiah; the Messiah is a friend of mine;
and Mr. Obama is no Messiah! No, brothers and sisters,
if Mr. Obama is a character from the Bible, then he is Pharaoh.
Bow with me in prayer, if you will.
Lord, You alone are worthy to be served, and we rely on You, and You alone.
We confess that the government is not our deliverer, and never rightly will be.
We read in the eighth chapter of 1 Samuel, when Samuel warned the people
of what a ruler would do, where it says "And in that day you will cry out
because of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves, but
the LORD will not answer you in that day." And Lord, we acknowledge
that day has come. We cry out to you because of the ruler that we have
chosen for ourselves as a nation. Lord, we pray for this nation. We pray
for revival, and we pray for deliverance from those who would be our masters.
Give us hearts to seek You and hands to serve You, and protect Your people
from the atrocities of Pharaoh's government.
In God We Trust...
You may consider sharing this with others.
If you don't agree ... just delete.

Have a nice day.

It's a Wonderful Life


Yes indeed, it is TRULY a wonderful life!

Yesterday Mark, Sally & myself were honored to attend the sold out musical performance of “It’s a Wonderful Life” at the Topeka Civic Theater.

Our local NBC TV network played the original black and white version. We have it on our DVR box.

I related a lot to George Bailey, the main lead. In 25 words or less, here is the story:

A good man, George Bailey, is disappointed and wants to die. An angel appears to save him.

Here’s my wonderful life:

A follower of Jesus, Myron D. Holter, is disappointed. He does NOT want to die. He’s writing about his life and posting his writings on the web.

Americans For Prosperity

Dear Myron,

Yesterday at 1:30 p.m. two very different meetings occurred.

On the grounds of the United States Capitol, thousands of grassroots activists from across the nation rallied in a park with the media present. Our message to the Senate was simple: "Keep your hands off our health care!" CLICK HERE FOR PICTURES

Meanwhile, at the White House, President Obama, Majority Leader Harry Reid, other liberal Senators and their special interest allies met behind closed doors to cut political deals, twist arms and plot strategy -- all to get their health care takeover bill across the finish line and out of the Senate.

At our open air rally, Laura Ingraham, Dr. Tom Coburn, Sen. Jim DeMint, Sen. Richard Burr, Sen. Johnny Isakson, Jim Martin of 60 Plus, and our Tea Party Patriot friends Jenny Beth Martin and Mark Meckler detailed our reasons for opposing this disastrous health care takeover while urging Americans to stay in the fight for our freedoms. Across the nation, thousands more Americans went to the local offices of their U.S. Senators with the same message.

Meanwhile, at the White House, the President and his political friends negotiated in secret. Cut their deals in secret. And tried to buy votes in secret.

The contrast could not be more clear. And, that's why the American people are with us.

Ever wonder if your grassroots efforts make a difference?

Well, let me give you two numbers: 61 and 44.

CNN -- hardly a conservative front group -- recently reported that 61% of the American people now OPPOSE the Washington health care "reform" effort. Support for the health care takeover is literally in free fall.

The second number: Gallup Polling Company reports that President Obama's personal approval rating is down to just 44% -- the lowest level in history for a President still in his first year.

President Obama has made this ill-advised health care takeover his top priority, and the American people are telling the President loud and clear to stop now. Sadly, he's not listening.

I could tell you so many stories from today's rally at the Capitol. But, I'll hold at just two.

As the rally ended and the thousands of activists headed for their Senators' offices to deliver their message one-on-one, a young man in a baseball cap walked up to me and said "I'm from Jersey and I closed up my pizza shop for the day to come down here to send a message. Times may be hard but I can always make up the money later and I don't want my children to live under government-run health care." With that, he introduced me to his young son.

Minutes later, a retired gentleman from North Carolina holding an American flag (a big one) came up to me, shook my hand and said, "This is the third time I've come to Washington, D.C. this year and I'll come again if I have to. I fought in Korea for freedom and now I'm fighting for freedom again. I've never quit at anything in my life and I'm too old to quit at something now!" He gave me a big bear hug and then marched off for the long ride home.

I walked back to my car with that combat veteran's words ringing in my ears, "I've never quit at anything in my life..."

He's right. We're not going to quit.

Harry Reid and President Obama and Speaker Pelosi are trying to sell "inevitability." The idea that this health care takeover cannot be stopped.

We've stopped it since the August recess, through Labor Day, then through October, then to Thanksgiving. Now, we're just over a week from Christmas.

They can be stopped. And, you and I and folks across America are the ones who are standing in the gap for our freedoms. Thank you.



PS: No matter what announcements and pronouncements come from Obama, Reid, Pelosi and company,-- keep focused on delivering our message through calls, emails, and personal visits to your Senate and House offices. And, now more than ever, get your friends to do the same. CLICK here to send this email to your friends. The Holidays are here but we've got to keep fighting.

I used to like Christmas.

When I was a little guy, Christmas was always something I looked at with earnest.

My parents would always make it fun. We lived on a farm NE of Bruce SD. I am the 5th child of six children. I’m the thorn between two roses.


Adolph Holter (1908-1978)
Cecelia (Bergh) Holter (1913- )

My Siblings:

Wesley Holter Nov 1937 ?
Ronny Holter Nov 1938 ?
Dale Holter Feb 1941 ?
Adelpha (Holter) Reppe July 1943?
Myron Holter 012345 (How about that J )

And lastly my baby sister

Julie (Holter) Anderson (Sept 1948?)

So with that in mind, Christmas time was always enjoyable.

I don’t enjoy Christmas anymore.

BAH-HUMBUG or the NorVegun expression


Someday I’m hoping to cross off #1 & #2 on my bucket list.

Maybe, just maybe I can enjoy Christmas again someday.

Please pray for my hatred to disappear.

The family therapy meeting will commence later this afternoon.

I am not optimistic.

I guess I’ll post this to my public blog.

Let me Give

12/8/2009 6:08:06 AM

I do not know how long I will Live
But while I live, Lord, let me give
Some comfort to someone in need
By smile or nod, kind word or deed.

And let me do whatever I can To ease things for my fellow man.
I want naught but to do my part
To lift a tired or weary heart

To change folks’ frowns to smiles again
Then I will not have lived in vain
And I’ll not care how long I’ll live
If I can give … And give … and give.

Just Laugh at them

12/7/2009 6:06:53 AM

Greetings everyone whose reading my writings. May the Lord be with you.

I am currently reading the Limbaugh letter and came across the article where Rush is interviewing Sarah Palin.

In the interview, Rush mentions her book on “Do I respond to attacks?” His answer was to just laugh at them.

That is my answer to all you “Liberals” out there reading my latest blog.
I am humored by your ignorance.

You know who you are.

By calling me a hypocrite, among many other names, you are merely revealing your ignorance.

I’m a Christian Conservative Blogger and I am what I am.

Now if you’ll all excuse me, I’ve got other important matters to attend to.

Coffee’s ready

Topeka KS government

12/4/2009 3:03:00 AM

Dear Topeka City governing bodies:

As a tax-paying citizen, I feel I can contribute to help making OUR government more efficient.

Remember, I’m a Christian Conservative blogger. I do ALL my work to the glory of OUR Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I also ran for mayor back in Feb. 2005. I do have an opinion.


Mayor (1)
Manager (1)
Council (9)


Mayor(s) (2)
Manager (1)
Council (4)


Mayor $ 20,000
Manager 137,500
Council 90,000
Total 247,500


Mayor(s) – $ 70,714.28 (two)
Manager 35,357.14 (one)
Council(s) – 4 141,428.56 (four)

TOTAL _______________

$ 247,500

Notice that the total salaries are unchanged. As the originator of this idea, I’ll only charge the city $2,500 to make it a nice round number to $250,000. J


The city will be divided up into quadrants. The north/south quadrant will be Topeka Avenue. The north/south will be the Kansas River.

Ground zero will be the new Topeka Ave. Bridge The 2nd mayor, me, will be cutting the ribbon..

12/4/2009 6:43:14 AM

Please re-read the previous sentence. All this entire mayoral candidate wanted to do in 2005 was to cut ribbons and kiss babies. Or like my financial friend Dave Ramsey tells his callers, eating rice and beans or beans and rice. All I wanted to do was kiss babies and/or cut ribbons. I will NOT kiss ribbons or cut babies though. Enough is enough J

So here’s what I’m thinking:

In the next election cycle, there will be two candidates running for office. A bumper sticker could be something like

Now the 2nd mayor would need to learn how to conduct the weekly meetings at city hall.
He/she would be knowledgeable on the Roberts rule of order. This candidate would rather be out cheerleading for this great city. But this guy would refuse to wear a female cheerleader outfit. J

The voters of Topeka KS would decide in the next election.

The mayor would only vote in the event of a 2-2 tie. The mayor also would have veto rights.

12/4/2009 7:23:44 AM

The Topeka City council’s four districts will be voted by the Topeka voters come election time. Currently the voters decide the nine elected officials every other year. In 2010 the even districts #2,4 & ,8 will be decided.

I propose that there will only be even districts #2 & 4 with #6 & #8 no longer in existence.

The current incumbent in these districts would need to run for office, like everyone else.

In 2011 the odd districts #1,3,5,7 & 9 will be up for election with our current election process.

I propose that there only be districts #1 & 3 come election time in 2011. The incumbents would need to apply as a candidate like every other citizen. Districts #5,7 & 9 will no longer exist.

The incumbents in these districts will need to run for office when the time comes.

Those running for office in any elected position will need to be a voter in the district they are running. No exceptions.

The two mayors will need to be a voting citizen in the city of Topeka KS also. No exceptions.

Please bear in mind, this is a rough draft for you all in government to consider.

It doesn’t matter what kind of government you have in life, it’s the people who make it work .. or not.

I will now post this to my public blog on the Internet.

Dr. Visit today
12/1/2009 4:19:20 AM

Today my health journey is to take me to a Dr. Lane on Lane St. Our primary physician recommends that I see someone to look into my head.

I hope he/she finds something.

I’m a Tiger supporter. Get the media out of it. If he has family problems, let him work it out without the whole world knowing.

Guess I’ll get the 1st cup of coffee….GREAT !!

It doesn’t get any better than this!

I made a new web page

It’s interesting how the Internet works. I write in the AM and post my thoughts for the whole world to read.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of bad folks out there who would like to do harm to us. Hopefully if you’re reading this, you’re NOT one of them.

Keep the writings clean.

Just ask me.
