Circuit Rider's Sources

An Acknowledgement with Appreciation

Look, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of Him. So shall it be! Amen.
(Revelation 1:7 NIV)

Music Title: Luvntune

Please permit this Clarion Co. Pennsylvania farm boy (now living in Cambria Co.) to acknowledge significant sources which have played a part in the formation and ongoing witness of Circuit Rider's Range.

First and foremost is my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is He Who in mercy forgave me of my many transgressions years ago and then called me into the ministry of preaching His Gospel. Further, I believe He has led me into this web site ministry as well. He gently reminds me from time to time of a number of important things, which are:

That without Him I can do nothing and that He did call me to preach and bear witness to His truth and that has not changed - (John 15:5,16).

That He will be with me even to the end of the age as I involve myself in carrying out His commission - (Matt. 28:19,20).

To beware lest all people speak well of me - (Luke 6:26) - so far I haven't had to sweat that one too much as responses coming back from those who have visited the Range will indicate!

That being sent out by Him is as a sheep sent among wolves - (Matt. 10:16-18).

Warnings to be very careful and always alert lest I allow myself to be deceived (Matthew 24:4,5,11,23,24) and that there will be a "rerun" of conditions as they existed in the times of Noah's generation and Lot's time when he lived in Sodom (Luke 17:26-30).

That I can expect to be treated as He was -- sometimes the witness will be received positively and sometimes the response will be hostility and persecution - (John 15:18-21), and by implication in being identified with Him that I can expect at times to be in the midst of conflict and division just as He was - (John 7:43; 9:16; 10:19-21).

That He is going to prepare a place for me and He will return again to receive me unto Himself - (John 14:1-4).

That overcoming the world by His grace and power will ultimately lead to indescribable rewards on the other side when my course in this life is completed - ( Rev. 2:7, 11, 17, 26-28; 3:5, 12, 21).

Second, I would like to thank 2 special people that helped initially in my getting involved with Circuit Rider's Range. They are my grandson, Tommy Lindrose, who steered me to Angelfire Communications and showed me some things to do in getting my first page up and going, and the Rev. Tamara Toothman Shoup (Rev. Tami), my favorite WV preacher, who gave suggestions here and there and encouraged me to pursue this goal. Both are mentioned at other places on the Range, but I wanted to especially recognize them in this area for the help they gave me as I got started in this venture.

Third, there have been members of family and friends that have passed on items of humor which have been used on the Range also. Most of this appears at Circuit Rider's This 'n That Den. For these contributions I am also grateful.

And now for the rest of our acknowledgements, heeeeeere's Theo, my loyal Administrative Assistant!

Thank you, sir! Notice, my friends, that I do show respect to the boss -- at least, most of the time! As you move south of here you will see a number of other acknowledgements which involve music sources, graphics, quotations, Bible sources, etc. A lot of graphics are public domain as are a number of music files. If you see something that is copyrighted and not recognized as such, please inform us immediately. We do want to recognize publicly those persons or companies that hold a copyright on a work which they have produced.

There are a number of sources for images that are used at web sites. One company that provides some at no cost and others for purchase is Crames Studios. The pulsating heart at beginning of Human Life Is Sacred, the yakking teeth on Range 3 and the meshing gears at Circuit Rider's Domino Class are samples of their fine work. You can visit them by clicking on their banner and see what all they offer.

Crames Studios--3D Animations and Graphics

As mentioned early on at Range 1, a number of graphics, beginning with the bumblebee, are from the library of Angelfire Communications. Some are animated and others are not -- also used are lines such as the rainbow or others and bullets or other graphics used at beginning of paragraphes etc. These are used with the permission of Angelfire Communications by virtue of my registered membership and still maintaining web space at that location. You can go there, check out the library or the many other resources which they have and also make arrangements to set up your own web site. They now offer up to 30 mb of free space with lots of tutorials to help you get underway.

I also have used graphics from the Animation Factory. Permission to use their graphics is granted by virtue of my purchase of a CD Rom containing thousands of their graphics and my membership. You can go to their site and get details for obtaining graphics for use at your web site.

Another source of graphics used at the Range is Andover Net which has what is known as the Media Builder Library, rich in all kind of resources, which include graphics. Permission is granted by them for use of the graphics at a non commercial web site. There is a lot of free stuff at Andover.

Some graphics are in the realm of what is known as public domain. This is disputed by some, but those doing the disputing usually are unable to be specific and point out what graphic is copyrighted along with the artist who claims the copyright. As also mentioned earlier, if you see a graphic that you know to be copyrighted and you know the source and name of person or company holding the copyright, please inform me immediately and I will take the necessary steps to obtain permission for use and give proper recognition of that particular work. There are graphics on the Range that appear on many different web sites and on those which make graphics available for use on non commercial sites. At this point I have found none of these with the identity of the artist and claim to a copyright on such work.

Our new "home" is now at where we have 20 mb of web space available for a small fee paid each month and no ads will be popping up on each area you move into. And if we outgrow that space we can for a bit more of an investment get more space -- ah, just think of all the future adventures on Circuit Rider's Range that await you . Free web space is also available from the fine folks at this web hosting site. To check them out, just go to:

And you probably have noticed that your pointer changes a bit as you move over the different areas of Circuit Rider's Range. For this we are grateful to Comet Systems. You can visit their place where these fascinating cursors are available to people who have web sites, as well as to those who want to "adopt" one temporarily for their desktop!

By the way, while you are here, would you be willing to cast a vote for this web site -- that is, if you haven't already done so in one of the other areas? We would certainly appreciate this gesture on your part. As always, we hope you are blessed and challenged as you explore the Circuit Rider's Range, and that you will sign the Guest Book before leaving.
