‘They shall not make bald patches on their heads, nor shave off the edges of their beards, nor make any cuts on their body.’  ~ Leviticus 21:5

 

Good news!  The old crew chickens appear to be accepting the new chicks I introduced into the coop last week.  The latter have been able to negotiate the coop largely unmolested, though the larger birds tend to become aggressive whenever I enter to feed them.  (The get in such a fowl mood!)  I would love to post pictures (the Ameraucanas are absolutely beautiful) but the wife’s camera is behaving badly.  Stay tuned.

 

“I’ll meet you at the outdoor cafe.  (I’ll be wearing orange.)”  

 

 

  • By way of demonstrating how the biblical translation you employ can have a significant impact on your exegesis: Do you realise that the King James Version mentions unicorns?

 

 

 

  • South Korea currently ranks 12th in the world militarily, whereas North Korea is 18th. South Korea has twice as many men available to the military (24 million to 11 million) and roughly twice as many under arms (657,000 to 382,000). Economically the South ranks 13th in the world with a GDP of $982b (just above Australia), the North ranks 156th with $2b (just above Greenland). North Korea‘s gross national income was valued at $26.7 billion last year, with its per capita gross national income at $1,152, according to the Bank of Korea. By contrast, South Korea‘s $971 billion economy grew 5 percent last year, giving it a per capita income at $20,045.’  (So, remind me, why are we still in South Korea?)

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • As someone who would have lost my land to this New World Order boondoggle, I am very relieved to know that, in this instance anyway, the Powers That Be heeded the concerns of the little man.

 

 

 

  • Sedacca wrote that current financial-market conditions remind him of “someone standing on a lonely beach, armed with only a small bucket, trying to stop a rare tsunami that hits the shores. It is how I feel about our markets and the tools being utilized by the Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank and other regulatory bodies. They are overmatched for what they are facing and, worse yet, they helped create the mess in the first place by being far too easy with money and debt creation.”

 

 

 

  • By [current standards of] morality and logic, Germans at Nuremberg might have asserted a right to kill women and children because that is what the British were doing to [German] women and children.’

 

 

 

 

 

  • Maybe those folks in Taxachusetts aren’t so bad after all. A local school committee recently added Ron Paul’s book, ‘The Revolution: A Manifesto’ to its summer reading list.

  1. This has absolutely nothing to do with the above post but I found this in a magazine and I thought of you and Ashlee. It’s called Animal Tales:

    FREE-RANGE CHICKENS
    “Well, it’s another beautiful day in paradise.”
    “How’d we get so lucky?”
    “I don’t know and I don’t care.”
    “I think I’ll go walk over there for a while. Then I’ll walk back over here.”
    “That sounds like a good time. Maybe I’ll do the same.”
    “Hey, someone refilled the grain bucket!”
    “Is it the same stuff as yesterday?”
    “I hope so.”
    “Oh, man, it’s the same stuff, all right.”
    “It’s so good.”
    “I can’t stop eating it.”
    “Hey, you know what would go perfectly with this grain? Water.”
    “Dude. Look inside the other bucket.”
    “This . . . is the greatest day of my life.”
    “Drink up, pal.”
    “Cheers!”
    (Laughs.)
    (Laughs.)
    “Hey, look, the farmer’s coming.”
    “Huh. Guess it’s my turn to go into the thing.”
    “Cool. See you later, buddy.”
    “See ya.” ♦
