Thanks to Flaming Atheist and the Cat Adoption Team in Oregon for today’s guest cat blogging. If you’re interested in adopting a cat and live in or close enough to Oregon, take a look at what the Cat Adoption Team has to offer.
Mr. Grey – medium hair grey and white cat, he’s about 1 1/2 years old. He loves to wrestle with other cats and is very playful but also loves to be brushed. After running around he usually assumes his favorite pose of stretching out with his belly on the floor.
Thanks to Chris for sending in a picture of Sunny last week (sorry I didn’t get it posted sooner)
I have enjoyed your blog for quite sometime now. It is the first thing I check in the morning, and the last thing I check at night. I also check it frequently during the day, especially during lectures.
Anyway, here is a nose shot of my dog. Her name is Sunny, she is a 7 year old gold-retriever, Saluki mix.
Children attend class at the Dongzhong (literally meaning “in cave”) primary school at a Miao village in Ziyun county, southwest China’s Guizhou province, November 14, 2007. The school is built in a huge, aircraft hanger-sized natural cave, carved out of a mountain over thousands of years by wind, water and seismic shifts.
From the commencement of the Christian era, every art has been exhausted and every conceivable punishment inflicted to force all people to hold the same religious opinions. This effort was born of the idea that a certain belief was necessary to the salvation of the soul. Christ taught, and the church still teaches. that unbelief is the blackest of crimes. God is supposed to hate with an infinite and implacable hatred, every heretic upon the earth, and the heretics who have died are supposed at this moment to be suffering the agonies of the damned. The church persecutes the living and her God burns, for all eternity, the dead.
