I think it's a planet (though now I'd be really embarrassed if it turned out to be an airplane)  :angel:  Anyway, but that was the original reason they called them planets, they were 'wanderers' in the sky.

From countless stars to a post-it note....I guess NASA's budget isn't cooperating these days.

For my 5000th post, I bring you the Amazona vittata.  They're slowly coming back from near-extinction.

I'm not really sure what I'm feeling about this piece of art. So many mixed emotions are running through me right now.

Extreme manliness surmounted by a kitty...those, my brother, are the passions rising up within your soul.  Battle on!  Keep your nous safe from all deception!

*drum roll*

"Many of us no longer lack food, water, clothing, or shelter; nor do we regularly face life-threatening physical danger. As a result, the protective energies have adapted toward defending the individual psychologically, rather than physiologically. We now experience the daily need to defend our self-concepts rather than our bodies. Our major struggles end up being with our own inner fears, insecurities, and destructive behavior patterns, and not with outside forces." - Michael A. Singer

Also, as for my earlier astronomical remark, I'm an idiot, don't listen to me. Ever.

And for my 31002nd post I bring you... a few things sitting around on my hard drive collecting dust (mostly half finished projects). Errors you find in these are your own fault; these are labors of love, and love cannot be pierced by your ill-conceived, overly-rational, nit-pickerishness. Anyway, hopefully this will make up for the disappointment of hecma925 last May.

1) oc.net statistics




2) list of writers/writings/sources in the early church









3) short bibliographies for two Nicholases... or Nikolaiai? Nicholaies?

I'm currently trying to catch up. I've been a member for over 5 years and I don't even have 5,000 posts yet.

St Augustine was not included on Justin's list. Accident or intentional? Hmmmmm...

This one is a great shot:

It shows the playful nature of cattle.

Have you seen the You Tube videos of cattle playing with balls or chasing a robotic car?

Dropped the ball on 11,000.
Do this daily till you have 11,111 posts:
11 prostrations at 1:11am
Read Psalms 11 & 111
Say Jesus Prayer once, five times a day

When you hit 11,111 bow before your icons and thank God for his mercy. Drink some holy water (not too much!!!) Then post a selfie on this thread.

Selfies need not apply.
