Ten Commandments for a Responsible Pet Owner ... as dictated by the pet.

By Stan Rawlinson

  1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.
  2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.
  3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.
  4. Donít be angry with me for long and donít lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainments. But I have only you.
  5. Talk to me. Even if I donít understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.
  6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.
  7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I have teeth that could easily crush the bones in your hand, and yet I choose not to bite you.
  8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps Iím not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long or my heart might be getting old or weak.
  9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too will grow old.
  10. On the difficult journey, on the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you canít bear to watch. Donít make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there. Because I love you so.

Take a moment today to thank God for your pets. Enjoy and take good care of them. Life would be a much duller, less joyful thing without Godís critters.

Easter this year is (2008):
  • Sunday March 23 As you may know; Easter is always the 1st Sunday after the 1st full moon after the Spring Equinox (which is March 20).
  • This "dating of Easter" is based on the lunar calendar that Hebrew people used to identify Passover, which is why it moves around on our Roman calendar.
  • Here are a couple of things you might be interested in:
  • Based on the above, Easter can actually only be one (1) day earlier - March 22, but that is pretty rare.
  • This year is the earliest Easter any of us will ever see the rest of our lives!
  • And only the most elderly of our population (95 years old or above!) have ever seen it this early.
  • None of us have ever, or will ever, see it a day earlier!
  • Here are the facts:
  • The next time Easter will be this early (March 23) will be the year 2228 - 220 years from this year!!
  • The last time it was this early was 1913 so, if you're 95 or older, you are the only ones that were around for that!.
  • The next time it will be a day earlier, March 22, will be in the year 2285 - 277 years from this year.
  • The last time it was on March 22 was 1818.

So, no one alive today has or will ever see it any earlier than this year!
