Today's Verse

Oldiesmann: Update on the car situation... Initial estimate was that the car was repairable. However, after further inspection at a body shop, the insurance company determined that the cost of repairs is about $1200 more than the car is worth Oct 16 2019 10:28pm

Oldiesmann: For those who didn't see the message on seniorsandfriends, I was involved in an accident this morning. I'm fine and my car should be repairable, but I've had the car less than 48 hours and am not looking forward to the costs Sep 30 2019 12:33pm

Carol: Praise:  I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery  today!  Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered.   So very blessed. Aug 13 2019 5:25pm

Carol: Today is another drive to the VA.  We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway.  Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong.  Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us.  /b] Aug 07 2019 10:46am

Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy.  Aug 07 2019 10:42am

JudyB: I have posted a new month! Aug 02 2019 8:05pm

Carol: Good Day - I see John B is online right now. John and Judy, I do hope you are not in the seriously hot temperatures.  I is really a scorcher today about 100 degrees.  Praying for relief. Jul 19 2019 10:31am

JudyB: Take care in the heat, try to stay cool! Jul 05 2019 11:36am

Carol: Jane:  Super nice to see you posting.  Jun 26 2019 6:40pm

Jane Walker: Hi everyone!  I just want y'all to know that I'm here and will, one day, be up to posting again.  things have been getting in the way, is all Jun 25 2019 4:45pm

I grew up in Watford Hertfordshire and learnt of this " legend " from an early age...A place - a grave, I would often pass by, to stop, or just ponder over in the sidings - walk - along of St Mary's Church yard....



The Inscription says...." The Tree is famous on account of the legend of the lady buried in the vault, who was an atheist, and on her death - bed is reported to have expressed a wish that if there were a God a Fig Tree might grow from her heart...
...and it did...Here is the " Our Watford History's  " explanation for you to judge for yourself.....Link...to story...

" Love the animals: God has given them the rudiments of thought and untroubled joy.  Do not, therefore, trouble them, do not torture them, do not deprive them of their joy, do not go against God's intent. " ~  Fyodor Mikhail Dostoyevski.
