Good Morning rasmataz,

Are you reading and not posting?

"The dominant male in hippo society has the right to mate with all of his herd’s females, but gaining supremacy is a dirty job. Male hippos use their fan-shaped tails to fling their dung to attract a female and remind the herd of his territory."

Good Morning rasmataz,

Your Sunday movie is a Steve Politte video presentation, Waterscapes.
The song is "Meadows Full," from Video Blocks Music.

You will note that this movie is longer than I usually choose.
There is no text, only graphics and the music. You decide how long you want to view it. I chose it when I saw all the birds in the first 1:28 min. When I drove to town on Friday the sky was full of sea gulls, I suspect hundreds. I don't think I have ever seen that many in one flock.

This movie also brings the ocean to you as well as other bodies of water.

Quoting Steve Politte," This is the kind of video that you just enjoy God's artwork of Creation, and enhanced by beautiful music. God indeed is awesome. God bless and enjoy."

Good Morning rasmataz,
Enjoy your weekend.

"Size matters when it comes to the horns on a male goat or sheep. Head-butting clashes become more violent during breeding season, and the winner typically breeds with all the females in a flock or herd. So while fighting over females is frowned upon in human relationships, it’s go big or go home with the bachelor group for these hoofed mammals."

Happy Friday!

"Shiny feathers on a male hummingbird are thought to indicate good health, so these birds use their brilliant plumage to their advantage.

"Male bowerbirds are avian artists and spend anywhere from one week to a few months building the perfect little retreat for prospective females. These creative engineers decorate their bachelor pads with available resources, like seeds, berries, leaves, and other discarded items they can find. Many have a preferred color scheme and look for items to accommodate. Some species even use their beak or a piece of bark to paint their pad with an extra splash of color to attract a mate!"

Good Morning rasmataz.

Kitty sayings completed. Later there will be other animal sayings... I think. I have a lot of "stuff" saved for future use.

Beginning today, exotic mating rituals of the animal kingdom from the San Diego zoo web site.

"With their fancy feathers, it’s no surprise that birds take home the prize for most exotic courting routines. Male peacocks embody one of the most impressive courting displays of the avian world, and females are rather picky about their mates. In fact, the peacock’s female-attraction power is directly related to the perfection of a male’s spectacular train, including its overall length, the number of iridescent 'eyes' that are present, and even the symmetry of their pattern."

Never thought about it, but you're correct about a kitty not coming when you call it. Actually, the way to call a cat is to operate the can opener.

As you can see I did not make it by here on Friday nor yesterday. I did not have as much time as I thought I would have to be on the computer. Our pastor did not preach his sermon that he had prepared for today, but instead showed a video of Darrell Waltrip speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast. It is about 28 minutes long so would be about a normal sermon time (or shorter) than usual.

Good Morning rasmataz,

Your Sunday movie is an instrumental version of Nearer My God To Thee. The graphics are good ones, although don't let the snow and ice graphics for the first minute turn you off. When you reach 3 minutes or so, you'll want to reach out and help yourself to a strawberry or two.

"Nearer, my God, to Thee" is traditionally associated with the RMS Titanic, as passengers reported that the ship's band played the hymn as the Titanic sank. It is usually performed to the 1856 tune "Bethany" by American composer Lowell Mason, which was also used in the 1997 film "Titanic".

The Lyrics.

Verse 1
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!
E’en though it be a cross that raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.

Refrain:
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!

Verse 6
There in my Savior’s love, perfectly blest;
Age after age to be nearer, my God, to Thee.

Have a Blessed Sunday!

Good Morning rasmataz, not to be concerned. I know you do what you can.

A common superstition for today.

Black cats crossing your path

As companion animals for humans for thousands of years, cats play all sorts of mythological roles. In ancient Egypt, cats were revered; today, Americans collectively keep more than 81 million cats as pets.

So why keep a black cat out of your path? Most likely, this superstition arises from old beliefs in witches and their animal familiars, which were often said to take the form of domestic animals like cats.

Your movie is, Turn On Your Sunshine.
It is from "The Heartprints."

Wet, snowy and cold weather getting you down? Today's movie should lift you up.
The stated length of 3:47 min, is NOT correct. It is only 2 minutes.

Good Morning rasmataz,

Thank you for taking time to share.
That is early! I may get up early now, but not sure I would like having to be at work at this time. Then again, it means you are employed so I guess the bottom line is, it's a positive. What time do you get off and then home?

Temps for you definitely up and down. We continue warm for this time of the year, up to 60° but the rain and wind continues.

Sounds like a blessed Sunday for all of you.
Another positive, you don't have to work on Sunday.

Our weather has been up and down lately. After last week with record highs, we had some cooler weather and rain this weekend, then a slight warm up. Yesterday, we had an arctic cold front come through which dropped our temps from 46 to 19 by this morning. Up to 31 at this point with a forecast high of 40. Tomorrow the high is forecast to be in the 60's and Saturday may be record heat again with forecast of 77.

We had a great day at church this past Sunday. After church, we had baptism service and a soup pot luck lunch. It was called a "Souper Douper Sunday." There were 2 scheduled to be baptized and then a 3rd person wanted to be baptized so, after the pastor talked to them, we had another baptism after lunch.

Thanks for your 2 posts.
Sounds exactly like GB.
I have been posting most of my own numbers lately, even when I sit on them for awhile.

I bet it seems like your rebuilding has taken a long time. Now you can say, next month. Hopefully it will be completed on time.

Your Sunday movie is the Instrumental Hymn Sweet Hour of Prayer, that I located on youtube. Credit is not given to the performers. You may choose to watch the graphics displaying God's beauty or/and listen while you post.

Sweet Hour of prayer
(verse one)

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
That calls me from a world of care,
And bids me at my Father’s throne
Make all my wants and wishes known.
In seasons of distress and grief,
My soul has often found relief
And oft escaped the tempter’s snare
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer!

The hymn was written by William W. Walford (1772-1850).

May you be blessed!

Good morning!

After working this morning I went to a men's prayer breakfast at church. We are having a baptism service tomorrow at the end of our worship time. We recently purchased a portable/temporary baptistry so we could baptize since we can't get back in our other building yet due to the fire on Palm Sunday last year. At this time, the construction schedule has us back on March 31. Hopefully, there will not be any delays.

Since I went to bed later than usual last night and have been up since just after 3 this morning, I am going to take a nap after posting.

Good Morning rasmataz,
You sound like Calif, but thank goodness not as bad as they are. Horrible conditions there with no rain.

My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99 cents a can. That's almost $7.00 in dog money.

TT - after seeing the picture the first quote from yesterday makes a lot more sense, in a funny way.

We set another record high yesterday and might do it again today. If so, this will also be a record of 3 straight days in January setting a record high in the same year. Yesterday's old record was 72° and we reached 78°, same margin as the day before (6 degrees). We are having a few high clouds today, so may not get so warm. Forecast is for it cooling back down to average tomorrow and then some rain over the weekend. We need the rain, so I will not complain about it.

TT - I like cobbler, too. Thanks for the cute picture and the dog sayings.

We had a record high yesterday (Monday) of 77°, the old record was 71° set in 1999. Forecast today is warm again, but not quite as warm.

Good Morning rasmataz,

Funny about your pie choices. I would have preferred to share Lemon Meringue pie, but that bakery only makes butterscotch.

I stopped baking pies a long time ago as cobblers are much easier and I like them just as well. I usually make cherry or berry.

Your Sunday movie is "The Seasons of Life," written by BJ Morbitzer. The song is "The Summer of 42," performed by BJ Morbitzer. The video is presented by Steve Politte.

Wisdom given by a father to his 4 sons is applicable to each of our lives.

May you be blessed by viewing this thought provoking movie.

TT - thanks for the tidbits about pie. I haven't met a pie I didn't like to eat, but my favorite is lemon meringue. You posting about the butterscotch pie reminded me that I haven't had one in a long time, it might be my second favorite. But then, cherry, pecan, pumpkin, sweet potato, apple, strawberry, or pear might come in second (or third, or fourth). ;-)

Good Morning rasmataz,
You'll pass! :-)

Wish I had a garage, but only the carport.

Today is National Pie Day.

National Pie Day, an unofficial national holiday, created simply to celebrate the pie. It is a day for all to bake or cook their favorite pies. Even more importantly, it is a day set aside for all to enjoy eating pies!!

National Pie Day History

National Pie Day was created by the American Pie Council. The American Pie Celebration began in 1986 to commemorate Crisco’s 75th anniversary of “serving foods to families everywhere”. The first pies appeared around 9500 BC in the Egyptian Neolithic period or New Stone Age.
Fun Tidbit – Pie throwing:
Cream filled or topped pies are favorite props for humor. Throwing pie in a person’s face has been a staple of film comedy since Ben Turpin received one in Mr. Flip in 1909.

Do you have a favorite pie? What is it?

While you're thinking, how about a slice of cherry pie?
Maybe, you'd rather have butterscotch meringue?

Have you decided yet?
