Wow! Sometimes one finds the coolest sites in the cyber-universe. The museum in Iraq is not yet open to the public, but this virtual Iraq Museum will dazzle you without the expense of airfare, or the dangers of that pesky war we started there.

See exhibits and learn about people and events of the last 6,000 years, HERE.

Out Of Fashion

Chihuahua's now are the most prevalent dog at the pound.

As many as 1/3 of all the castoff canines at California shelters today are Chihuahua's.

If you are thinking of getting a dog for Christmas, consider adopting one of these little yappers that someone thought was a disposable toy.

No Sense Of Humor Allowed

According to the BBC News, St Matthew-in-the-City Church in Auckland, New Zealand has erected what was supposed to be a thought-provoking billboard that would "lampoon the literal interpretation of the Christmas conception story." that's what the church vicar, Archdeacon Glynn Cardy told the New Zealand Press Association. This "lampooning," Cardy said, was intended to "get people to think more about what Christmas is all about."

What it revealed instead
was the nasty, humorlessness of narrow minded, conservative Christians. It seems they are so insecure in their beliefs, that they have become angry and violent at the appearance of this New Zealand billboard.

The loudest of the protests
came from people who didn't read, St. Matthew-In-The-City, (The name of the church that put up the billboard), on the bottom right of the picture.
