2 Short Films by Erwin McManus

Time and again, people interviewed said that religion is negative, spirituality is positive. These 2 short documentary films from 2010 have a similar flow: Erwin McManus interviewing people in 2 major Canadian cities about the intrinsic cravings of humanity, interweaved with his meaningful commentary.

Crave: The Documentary about Vancouver

Crave: The Documentary explores how we all have one thing in common, regardless of race, background, or beliefs: the cravings of our soul. Crave features intimate interviews with people young and old. What they have to say about life’s biggest questions may surprise you. Erwin McManus explores the soul of Vancouver, Canada.

Crave: Calgary

Crave: Calgary explores the deepest questions of the human spirit: What does it mean to be human? What are the intrinsic longings that inform our choices and motivate our actions? Why do we do what we do?

Crave unwraps how regardless of race, religion, or status, we all have one thing in common: the cravings of our soul.

This 30-minute documentary is a definite must-see for those seeking new ways to dialogue about faith, spirituality and the inner journey of the soul.

Mix Your Own Essential Oils for a Reed Diffuser

Air fresheners can be had for your home at a much lower cost and a much higher quality when you go with a reed diffuser and mix your own essential oils and get your own favorite fragrance mix. What I was trying to figure out is the right ratio mix of the carrier oil and the essential oil. Here’s what I found to help me figure that out.

How to Print from Windows 10 to Airport Extreme USB Printer — May 10, 2019

How to Print from Windows 10 to Airport Extreme USB Printer

Looking for a way to print wirelessly over wifi from a Windows 10 laptop to an Airport Extreme (version 7.7.8) base station with a USB printer connected. The printer is a Canon MX330 series.

I’m able to print from other Mac’s using the wifi network, including an iMac 27″, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro. Haven’t yet figured out how to print from the Windows 10 laptop.

Here’s what answers I’ve found thru web searches and will update this blog post with what works and what doesn’t, after I try them:

Airport Extreme Printing via Windows 8.1 and Windows RT

has detailed instructions [this one uses adding a printer onto a TCP/IP Port]

Windows 10 connecting to apple airport printer

says Apple changed the port they use from 9100 to 9101 [essentially, in Windows, add printer, use port number 9101] and the thread also refers to this 2013 video, Windows Printing For Apple AirPort Extreme without Bonjour Wireless wifi. (and in the video's comment thread, people have said it worked with Windows 8, 10, 7..)

To be continued…

Stay tuned and I’ll update this blog post after I test these solutions and see if any of them work, or if I have to do something different..
