Thanks to Silver, we have a petition to sign. This is the Muslim Christian who refuses to renounce Christianity, and is now threatened with execution because of it. I doubt the petition will do any good, but bad press around the world is the better pressure to use.
A mystery only SEEMS like a mystery until it is solved.
brig admin 3: But winter is far from over. Subzero temperatures tonight and possibly tomorrow night and a wind driving the chill factor even lower. Ohio has got to be one of the windiest states in America. The only time it stops is when the temperature tops 90.

brig admin 3: will be going to school up into June to make up all of the snow days. So far this area has had snow, lots of it, but we missed the freezing rain and ice that plagued the eastern states and even the southern part of Ohio.

brig admin 3: This has been the winter without end. I'm on the eastern section. Ohio, the southeastern portion of the state. We've lucked out so far in that we have been between the really bad bouts of snow and ice. We've had our share, to be sure, the school kids

brig admin 3: Good to hear from you again. I knew the Scots and Irish were closely related in some fashion. I see the Scots are clamoring for independence again. They are a small country; but technically they were independent for a very long time. I hope they make it.

lophophora: Been crazy floods these last few weeks here, and winds too, but the greenhouse just hung in there!Winter was overall quite mild though. You have had some extremes of weather there? one coast snowed in and the other in drought?

lophophora: The scots are descended from a tribe of irish way back in the mists of time I think

lophophora: Hi Brig, no you didn't in any manner insult me! Sorry, I have been busy and not always online.

brig admin 3: lophophora if I in some manner insulted you; it was definitely unintentional.

brig admin 3: I'm not as well aquainted with Wales. But I understand many of them still speak their original language. Must be quite a feat in a country so small.

brig admin 3: A branch of my family is well established in Ireland and carries its own Coat of Arms. Beautiful green coat headed by a stag. But then, according to most histories I've read there isn't a great deal of difference between the Scots and Irish.

lophophora: Our ancestry goes back to Ireland, via Wales

lophophora: I am in the east, near Cambridge. The south coast of ireland, and down in cornwall, can remain quite mild most winters, they even have lizards! But I've nevsome er seen a native one.

brig admin 3: Do you live in the south of England?I understand it is almost tropical. Something about the Gulf Stream,I believe.I have always been fascinated by thngs Irish, Scot, and English. My ancestors originated in Clan Keith of Scotland.

brig admin 3: I have a real love of tomatoes and I plant variety of peppers. Way too wet for cactus. I prefer the tomatoes with a high acid content. They have the best taste with a bit of zing. I ordered a new computer. This one is shot (or should be)

lophophora: hi brig, I fear winter is yet to come here! We have had only 2 frosts, and sitting at 50f most days (england). But yes, yay for seed catalogues, lots of new cacti to sow this year!
Jan 16, 2014 2:48:48 GMT -7
brig admin 3: I'm getting seed catalogues can spring be far behind? We're sitting out Easter and spring items at my wife's store. Last weeks windchill of minus 30 drees has me wel ready for spring. Fity degrees forecast for this weekend tempts spring.But I know better.
