    well, technically, at the triple point it exists as all three...

    Tritium is sometimes used in luminous watch dials, but it's mostly used to boost the efficiency of nuclear weapons.

    Tee he, I have 12 litter boxes and I have no idea how many she has but there certainly isn't an edible one in the bunch. Were you referring to that disgusting Halloween Kitty Litter Cake recipe that makes everyone gag?

    I'm the one who has the Maine Coon looking cat. He's probably nothing more than a DLH with the Maine Coon coloration but he certainly is a nice looking animal.

    April left early this morning to visit her parents in Florida. She won't be back for a while and she doesn't have a lap top. Shame as I have no doubt she'd really love to jump in to this thread.

    Good point here Jim,

    Hey endparenthesis, loved your links.
    Note what is indicated here regarding reincarnation-

    Before I have to go and finish packing to get out of here I want to attempt to add a different spin on this topic.
    The way I figure it is that there is a heaven and I'm going when I die. Everyone here is going there with me because my beliefs parallel what was written by Eliezer C. Abrahamson. The Christians, Non-Christians, atheists, and agnostics here at Terra are all good people in my humble opinion so you're all going regardless of your beliefs because it looks like you're all covered (whether you want to be or not) even if you have to spend 12 months in Hell before you come and join the others. Bottom line, believe what you want if you are a good and honorable person as there are safety nets out there in my belief system! Here's wishing all a happy spring break!

    Yup, that's the one! I enjoyed it - I mean I enjoyed the picture and the creativity. Not sure I'd rank it above a cheesecake or anything else for that matter.

    Domestic Long Hair? Yes, a beautiful cat!

    April left early this morning to visit her parents in Florida. She won't be back for a while and she doesn't have a lap top. Shame as I have no doubt she'd really love to jump in to this thread.

    I suspect the thread will be kicking around for her when she gets back!

    (Thanks) A Rosh and a Daled are two letters that have cause a little confusion. The Hebrew poetry and prose, where they rhyme concepts (not sounds) is interesting. But the changing of a consonant to be play on words is different than what we so. E.G.: Ya - a - cov (Jacob) and Yabbock (River) are used to make a point.

    Then there are those blasted vowels that aren't there in the original manuscripts. So ya have to guess what the sounds were and what form of the word was intended.

    What was that one example of our language having one word for snow and another has several, to decribe many types of flakes?
    Linguistics isn't easy, but one thing about the Bible is that it is the most studied / scrutinized / critiqued book ever published.
