Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is Yours. Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom; You are exalted as Head over all. --1 Chronicles 29
The Mexican fishing spider will attach itself to a small leaf and float across a pond as if on a raft. From this vantage point, it hunts its prey of large tadpoles and small fish.
The spaceship in the sci-fi classic The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) was 25 feet high and was built on a studio backlot. It had to show no visible openings or hatches, yet had to open at certain times. The film's art directors incorporated an invisible split in its sides that was sealed over with soft plastic and coated with silver paint. Every time the dome of the ship was opened or closed, film crew members had to reseal the split. It was an innovative design for the era.
Grand Rapids, Michigan is the "SpaghettiOs Capital of the World" because per-capita consumption is highest in that city, per the Franco-American company. Reportedly, there are more than 1,750 "O's" in a 15-ounce can of SpaghettiOs.
ST. NICK DAY?

NO, NOT THAT KIND OF MOLE!
Chicken mole can be made with a range of complicated sauces, often including many kinds of chiles plus unsweetened choco- late. "Mole," pronounced MO-lay, meant "concoction" in the Aztec language.
FROM RICHES TO RAGS
In Los Angeles, discarded garments are being recycled as industrial rags and carpet underlay. Such recycling keeps clothing out of landfills, where it makes up 4 percent of the trash dumped each year.
After living in a remote wilderness all his life, an old UNC grad decided it was time to visit the big city. In one of the stores he picks up a mirror and looks in it. Not knowing what it was, he remarked, "How about that! Here's a picture of my daddy." He bought the 'picture', but on the way home he remembered his wife, Lizzy who was also a UNC grad, didn't like his father.
So he hung it in the barn, and every morning before leaving for the fields, he would go there and look at it. Lizzy began to get suspicious of these many trips to the barn. One day after her husband left, she searched the barn and found the mirror. As she looked into the glass, she fumed, "So that's the old gal he's runnin' after."
These days, a cake is a sweet baked food usually containing flour, sugar, eggs, and flavoring. In the 13th century, however, cake was a flat, round loaf of bread.
It wasn't until the 15th century that cake was associated with its modern definition. The word is from the Old Norse kaka, which is related to cookie (from the Dutch koekje), but not, as is sometimes believed, to the word cook.
Cake can also mean a shaped or molded mass of food. Or a compressed mass of something else such as a cake of soap. This word can also be used as a verb describing the action of forming something into a cake.
Palestinian Mother Upset Daughter Failed as Suicide Bomber
Palestinian Authority (PA) controlled television is still broadcasting human interest pieces highlighting parents' support for their children's decisions to become suicide bombers. In spite of PA pledges not to incite, an interview broadcast last week featured the mother of Wafa Al-Bas, the 21-year-old Arab woman from Gaza who was arrested at the Erez Crossing in June 2005 wearing a 20-pound (9 kg) bomb under her clothes.
The PA TV interview with Al-Bas' parents, which aired on February 20th, features her mother saying the event was hard for her - not because her daughter was on a suicide mission, but because she failed to carry it out. Al-Bas intended to bomb Be'er Sheva's Soroka Hospital outpatient clinic, where she had been receiving regular treatments for serious burns on 45 percent of her body resulting from a gas stove explosion in her home.
The failed bomber later told Israeli television that her greatest wish was to kill 30 to 50 Israelis, including children. The hospital attack would likely have killed or maimed the very Jewish doctor who had saved her life.
This news breaks my heart! As Christians we are taught that if we even HATE our brother, we have committed murder already! We are taught to love because Love conquers all! To think that a mother or father of these young people, actually WANT them to murder 30 to 50 people in their short lifetime is unthinkable!!!! I would like to say to this mother, your teaching of HATERED has already caused your daughter to comment murder. YOUR goal has been accomplished. Your people are committing murder over and over every minute, EVERY SECOND of the day. TERROR is your god!
A couple of days ago, there were two Muslim women that entered our office with “peace offerings” for each of us. They had made a dessert called “Noah’s Pudding” and gave us a pamphlet of the explanation that they are willing to make peace with all people and believe that all religions have some connection with each other. The pamphlet also had the recipe, which was actually very good. It was a fine gesture! They spoke to each of us and told us they do not have hearts of hate and wanted to be accepted among us. We each took their offering, but in our hearts had anticipations of their effort. (Is this a people we can trust? Are they REALLY sincere? Was this a trick? How do you discern who is real and who has nothing but trickery in their hearts?)
I have to believe my Lord, that LOVE DOES CONQUERS ALL! I had to put this into HIS Hands! And, of course, we were accepting of these lovely women. PEACE needs to start somewhere!
It is time for those Muslims that do not believe as the woman in this story, to come forth and show that LOVE is in their hearts. It is time for those Muslims that want PEACE to help put a stop to the TERROR! TERROR should not be tolerated, from anyone!
In the US, people that set out to murder others are STOPPED! Parents that teach hate and abuse their children in this way are STOPPED! This kind of behavior has been let go for so long because it is considered a “religion” (?)! Their numbers keep increasing for there are many in this world that hate and this “religion” gives them a good excuse to murder!
