My Dearest Brothers Knights of my council St. Louise Overlake 4385:


I truly feel that Our Father God Most High is calling all three of us now in the Name above all names, Jesus Christ Our Lord, and through us the power of the Holy Spirit to make our Brother’s Round Table an Absolute Reality!


Here is what we must do (I cannot do this alone without your help!):

1.  Worthy Financial Secretary Trevy, I need you to order from Supreme four booklets #2632 entitled “K of C Round Table Booklet”, and hand each of us a copy of this. One for yourself to use, one for Brother Jorge Moreno, one for Worthy District Deputy Carmelo, and one for me (Matthew James).

2.  Each of us must read and understand the guidelines, bylaws, and instructions for having and coordinating a K of C Round Table possibly here at St. Louise. [My instructions are explicitly telling me that a K of C Round Table is almost always at a different parish, but for our Spanish speaking community here at St. Louise, we are going to make an exception to this “rule” to very lovingly include them with us.]

3.  Worthy Warden Brother Jorge, (this is the critical part) à I need your help to start building a list of names in our Parish that we can show to Father Tom. To do this, I need your help to personally one-on-one contact as many Brother Knights, Brother Spanish Speaking/Hispanic Knights, and any other prospective new member candidates who we could also initiate and get them to their First (1st) Degree also wanting to be part of this wonderful new Round Table!

4.  Once we have all the knowledge that we need, and a list of names as proof of Brother Knights and Candidates wanting to help our church and be good stewards in good service for our parish community as much as I do, then at that time it will be right for the four (4) of us to meet with Father Tom (with a booklet and copy of the list he can have), and ask his permission to officially form St. Louise 4385 Round Table of our Latin American and Hispanic Brother Knights under the support and direction of our council.

5.  If Father says “Yes, you may”, then Jorge with you we will together fill out form #2629 tha we have copies of, and send this to Supreme so that they know who is coordinating our new Round Table. Once we establish your guy’s activities as service to the parish, then we will annually fill out form #2630 “Annual Report KofC Round Table” and send to Supreme by June 30th of each year. Although, we don’t have to worry about form #2630 until we get to that point.


Guys, I know this sounds like a lot, but I truly do believe that we can do this.

Always remember that we are here to help each other and our church, no matter what.


Fraternally yours in Jesus Christ Our Lord,

† † †

-Matthew James Klump

Xiu Xian Tea is located in both Bellevue and Kent!

We do so love being greeted at Xiu Xian Tea that we must take a few minutes to sit down and enjoy the many teas, including sometimes the red teas, with all the wonderful people that happen to come by to try the teas as well before they buy.

  • Pros: Excellent Atmosphere to See, Smell, and try Tasting the Teas!
  • Cons: No shortcommings found PERIOD.
  • We always tend to over stock our intended quota of tea to buy because of how we know these rare and wonderful loose leaf teas will make us feel at home.

    Most especially wonderful, there is always a story to share about the teas and the ceremonies surrounding it.

    So drink Xiu Xian loose leaf tea for the love of your health, and then share that gift of good health with others who have not for love of their good health as well in our fellow man!

    Please believe me when I say that if you happen to like tea, then this place of the most rare, delicate, and affordable teas uniquely captures the tradition and storytelling about teas while having your tea party will put you on cloud nine just as God himself is there blessing each one of you.

    We had an absolutely spectacular time as if we were having tea together in Heaven as God continues to bless us, touch us, and provide for us.


    -Matthew James Klump (The Ku Ding Guy [6 or more thick heavy/bitter sticks])

    Below are three pictures I am treasuring from our Capital Campaign Ground Breaking ceremony for the new elementary school and faith formation center at St. Louise De Marillac in Bellevue, Washington.

    This was a 4th Degree moment I will not forget as the Seattle Arch Diocese Arch Bishop Alexander Brunette came to bless the ground where the new 50,000+ square foot building will be built as part of our 11 million dollar Capital Campaign.

    This beautiful spring day, we dedicated to God in natural wonder through Tulips of every shape, size and color.

    God’s architecture of these magnificent small pieces of engineering, and our symbol of Global Piece, give further testament to his immeasurable wisdom and limitless love.

    Question - How many ways would YOU examine a Tulip -

    Rainbow of Tulips, Take My Breath Away! - 2

    Dedication to Our Flower for Global Peace, The Tulip -  1

    To God We Give the Glory In All Things!

    I hadn’t been a Sir Knight of Columbus for even a year, and I have already been elected to an officer position to stand guard as Faithful Outer Sentinel…

    Eric Iwasyk is our Assembly’s other guarding officer as Faithful Inner Sentinel that you see in this picture:

    Eric and Matthew Inner & Outer Sentinels

    Naturally, my beloved wife Jill could not stop giggling while see took this picture and hung our officer’s medals around our necks:

    I realize the blog post is a bit over due, but here it goes...

    This picture was taken at Everett, Washington United States Navel Base on Saturday, March 1st, 2008. The occasion was to humbly promote me to the esteemed rank of Sir Knight: Matthew James Klump in 4th Degree of the Knights of Columbus as a new member of his Very Reverend William J. Power assembly 1630. I appear in this photo with our Master of Ceremonies, myself mistakenly wearing my name badge with my tuxedo, and my wife Jill with her brides maid dress that you recognise from the wedding of Caroline Hill and Patrick Pitz.


    In this photograph with my Jill and I is Brother Sir Knight Trevy Burgess who was knighted the same time I was.


    This is our actual moment of being knighted: My eyes are closed praying to Almighty Father God Most High while kneeling before a member of the Washington 4th Degree Team, also giving my oath to protect and defend our church including our clergy of brother Priests in the Holy Roman Catholic Church. It looks like Jill momentarily found something funny to look at.


    In this second picture of our knighting, it looks like our roles are reversed with Jill’s eyes closed and my eyes being opened (presumed of course by God himself). At the time I think I was looking at another member of the 4th Degree Team, and looks hard to tell, but Jill is either praying or still laughing, I can’t tell which. My assumption is that she is praying.


    More photos of the Public Knighting Ceremony:

    It is times like this when I can’t figure out if I am awake or still dreaming when I see new cell phone technology like these. Sprint still requires the two year service agreement where TMobile does not and both phones would cost the same at about $300. I had a monthly discount with my previous employer Volt at about 8% off per monthly bill, and it looks like I have got another 8% discount with T-Mobile monthly bill with the new job I start with this Thursday for doing testing on Windows Vista with the Windows Division through Aditi staffing agency as another temporary Microsoft contract. This will most likely go to the middle of March, and then I’ll look for work again.

    I was thinking about how interestingly I had rather suddenly and unexpectedly bumped into our good and funny guy Rory Blyth! I was very fortunate to happen to drop by Rory’s blog this Sunday, September 30th, 2007 since tomorrow is Rory’s last day as a Microsoft Technical Evangelist. I was very moved by his life experience that he mentioned over the last three years of his fun at Microsoft, and I felt compelled to write him back a short reply:


    My friend Rory,                                                                                                                                    

    My encounter with you in building 25 cafeteria, the building where my present contract has placed me, was very enlightening, and also definitely a sign. It was a sign that I am not all that far behind you in the direction that you are headed in back to my home of 29 years, Portland Oregon after my present contract with Microsoft comes to its natural conclusion. For the longest time, it felt like my stay here in Redmond/Bellevue/Issaquah was more like a pilgrimage for spiritual knowledge, and then slowly as months turned into year, it felt like a Babylonian Exile much the same way that the two ancient Jewish nations in the land of Israel known as Jerusalem and Judea were banished from their cities and forced to live in captivity within Babylon. Their temples destroyed, and their people enslaved by the Babylonians because they did not heed the warnings of God's chosen prophets. They could not do something so simple as to obey God's laws and precepts that were handed down to them by Moses himself. Yes, it was the Ten Commandments that we know all too well. I too also believe that I've gained invaluable experience during my time at Microsoft. My skill levels have finally advanced to the point with software programming in testing and development that I stand a much stronger chance of gaining software engineering work in Portland Oregon that has always been my dream.

    Rory my friend, if you happen across any contacts in the Portland area you happen to know of since your headed back to Portland and tomorrow is your last day at Microsoft, do you think you can put in a good word for me over at the Pack West Microsoft office in Beaverton, OR? Or anyone else you happen to bump into kind of the same way that you and I bumped into each other over in the Building 25 cafeteria?

    A friend once said to me that the greatest joy happens in helping someone else, and perhaps even if that person is a somewhat of a stranger. I could not help but think about how you have been since the last time we met as business acquaintances. I'm glad I read your blog today since it spoke to me a great deal about being away from home and wanting to see family again.

    In response to Gloria’s story in the Seattle Times and the out pouring of support and prayers by her faith community, my faith simply demanded that I write to her a short note:

    Dear Gloria,

    Both I, Matthew James, and my wife Jill of St. Louise De Mariliac parish in Bellevue, WA have heard and read of your story from the beginning, especially by my wife Jill.
    We are also members of the anointed Knights of Columbus Counsel 4385 at St. Louise parish and also the Young Adults Group Ministry of St. Louise De Mariliac, and all of us extend our prayers out to you for speedy healing and a complete recovery. And if this is not the will of our most holy Lord God Jesus Christ, that he whose heart lights every dark place in this world, take you Gloria to his bosom as you enter into the throne room of God to live forever and reign with the holy family, Saints, and hosts of heaven, one God, forever and ever,
    Ah men.
    Many of us wish that we could follow you as you are reborn from this life to life everlasting in the next. Like infant children who do not understand, none of us who are still disciples of Jesus here on Earth are meant to understand what life with him is like until our faith walk in his glory on Earth is at an end. The Gospel of Jesus tells us over and over again not to fear, and that through faith we are saved.
    To my knowledge, you have done exactly this, so you have nothing to fear, and when the time comes for his second coming to you, your rebirth as your are given victory over death will be glorious!

    This is my prayer for you and my belief as told to me by his word, the one true Living God.

    If you ever happen across an IIS web server that absolutely REFUSES to behave properly and render web application requests for clients as a good little web server should, then check out the fix for x64 ASP.NET 2.0…

    1) Check that you DO NOT see this:


    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727>aspnet_regiis -lv

    2.0.50727.0     Valid           C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\aspnet_isapi.dll

    1.1.4322.0      Valid           C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_isapi.dll

    2.0.50727.0     Valid           C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\\aspnet_isapi.dll


    2) If you do, then do this:


    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727>aspnet_regiis -ua

    Start uninstalling all versions of ASP.NET.

    ..............................Start uninstalling all versions of ASP.NET.


    Finished uninstalling all versions of ASP.NET.


    Finished uninstalling all versions of ASP.NET.


    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727>aspnet_regiis -lv

    Cannot find any installed version.


    3) Finally, to make your IIS 6.0 webserver host on a X64 Windows OS, do this:


    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322>aspnet_regiis -i

    Start installing ASP.NET (1.1.4322.0).

    Finished installing ASP.NET (1.1.4322.0).


    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322>aspnet_regiis -lv

    1.1.4322.0      Valid (Root)    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_isapi.dll


    4) And also this to set x64 ASP.NET as the default and root version to finally resolve the version conflicts:


    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727>aspnet_regiis.exe -i

    Start installing ASP.NET (2.0.50727).


    Finished installing ASP.NET (2.0.50727).


    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727>aspnet_regiis.exe -lv

    2.0.50727.0     Valid (Root)    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\aspnet_isapi.dll

    1.1.4322.0      Valid           C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_isapi.dll

    Then you know what a headache life can be when you Litermaid Automatic cat litter box by Applica Incorporated can be when this wonderful consumer product since slice bread decides to break down.

    If you encounter the same situation that I did where I couldn’t get the litter rake arm moving again regardless of whether the device was plugged into an AC power outlet or powered by batteries, then follow these simple steps to get your automatic Littermaid cat box rake arm moving again:

    1) Un plug all power supplies from any AC outlet and remove all batteries.

    2) Where the rake arm would normally move all the way up to the receptical side to depress to two switches: Press both of these rake arm retraction switches, simultaneously ten times, and in a row as shown in this picture. The switches are located at the end of each track on each side of the litter box:

    3) Wait 5 minutes.

    4) Plug you AC power back in or put your batteries back into the Littermaid cat box.

    5)  Your scoop/rake arm should be moving once again, and everything as working again just fine!

    In the infancy of my career as a beginner programmer, I learned from the very beginning that planning and design is usually 60% of our work, and following through with implementation is 40% of what we do. Deploying a server is no different from deciding exactly on the topology of the server, to the thumb twidling of waiting for the status bar to reach 100%. In the end, a machine that started out as a workstation will never be a server, and reciprocally a sever will never be a workstation. My reality consumed a good two months in the wrong direction, and my hope is will help as a warning from my experience.
