  1. A New Addition to the Family

    Well, we've enlarged our family with a new four legged member, a black Labrador Retriever pup. She's special, and just as cute as can be. I can't remember how to upload pictures here on Lit Net, so if you're interested, come by my Ashes blog to see:

    And actually you can see the breeder's litter of pups at an earlier post, posted before we were able to select one.

    The Panic of 1907 may have been the deepest financial crisis that the U.S. faced except for the Crash of 1929.

    [CH55:V18] The Lord of the two Easts and the Lord of the two Wests!

    Two Easts and Two Wests means every point in relation to other point on Earth has an East and West.
    East of Eastern Hemisphere is the West of Western Hemisphere and vice versa.
    That makes a un-flat, rounded Earth. Other verse shows egg-like shape. ...
