  1. Thanks
    James Thomas Rook Jr. got a reaction from Srecko Sostar in Unprecedented sea level rise in Sydney harbor over the last 140 years due to massive climate change!   
    This has happened many, many times in the past, and is nothing new.
    Evidence is recorded in core samples from  iron bearing sediments at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea.
    This happens gradually, very unevenly, in local areas only,  all over the world, until a threshold is reached, then the whole thing "flips", more or less somewhere around 160 to 180 degrees.

    James Thomas Rook Jr. got a reaction from Isabella in Happy 14th Wedding Anniversary to my amazing husband. Without your wonderful support, none of these rescues would be possible. It’s a pleasure to look after Jehovah’s creatures together.   
    My wife and I have six rescue dogs and 11 pet chickens.   It is indeed a great pleasure to take care of them.

    Yikes .... now I will have to add that to my extensive list of flotsam and jetsam from St. Caleb, and St. Sophia.
    (Caleb and Sophia Merchandise, purses, briefcases, pins, buttons, slacks, suspenders and bow ties, and pictures, back car window decals, book covers, wall posters, 3d dolls like GB Bro. Anthony Morris III has in his Bethel Office, Videos, DVDs, coloring books, decorated birthd...er... baptism cakes, stand up displays, literature bags, greeting cards, Sophia colorful tote bags for girls, and Sophia cloth shopping bags for Wal-Mart, etc., book markers, key chains, 3d Printer statues of Caleb, ball point pens, and penlights, pins and brooches for older Sisters, and cartoon wall hangings for the inside of Caleb and Sophia dioramas, or JW.ORG men's ties, lapel pins, wristwatches, aluminum military style dog tags, rings, aluminum pendants for neck chains and charm bracelets, car bumper stickers, car window decals, women's pocket mirrors, flags to tie to radio aerials, put on flagpoles outside Chilean Kingdom Halls ( ... what's a Chilean Kingdom Hall doing with a flagpole, anyway ...?) Swiss Assembly Grounds, and OTHER places where a pale blue flag would look spiffy, and in the absence of a breeze, look like a U.N. Flag hanging limp. Then there is the JW.ORG blue oversized umbrellas, Unisex Hoodie Jackets, neck lanyards, hand lunch boxes with Paradise scenes, and of course Caleb and Sophia., and to contrast, from Peru, a BRIGHT Pink Caleb and Sophia Bible cover entitled New World Translation of the HOLY SCRIPTURES ... over a large picture of guess whom? Of course the refrigerator magnets and motivational jewelry are big sellers, not so much for the Caleb crochetable doll ?)
    Wherever shall I insert it?
    (Disregarding any comments about "where the light don't shine ...".

    James Thomas Rook Jr. got a reaction from Melinda Mills in JW Literature Cart Attack in France   
    ... later in Ancient Israel, they quit eating sheep, and merely used them as sleep aids for insomniacs ... assuming one knew how to count, and as cute "awwwwwww" models for religious  magazine illustrations.
    This was before the Internet, and cats were invented.

    I may have had a LITTLE bit to do with that.
    I remember about 12 years ago,  a WT picture of a Shepherd, tenderly holding a sheep in his arms, the sheep having a bandage on his foreleg, where the Shepherd had apparently tended a wound, and I commented about that that the reason the sheep had been shown such tender care care by the Shepherd is that back in Bible times, there was no refrigeration, and the Shepherd was keeping the sheep healthy, so that later he COULD EAT HIM.
    My adult son, several rows behind me, was called on next, and he indignantly proclaimed that Jesus did not EAT his sheep.

    People not writing these days, only taking pictures. It's happening on all forums. You can say what you want about a picture - accuracy doesn't seem to be important anymore.  The person who took the picture most like knows about the circumstances and is the one to say what happened.
    Only recently pictures in the study journal are described.  Before that people were commenting and saying anything. You could see and read anything into the picture, with several differing viewpoints commented upon. The originator is now saying what the picture is about, as it ought to have been from the beginning.

    James Thomas Rook Jr. got a reaction from Witness in The Most Hypocritical Paragraph Jehovah's Witnesses Have Ever Written   
    Notice that, in the April 8, 1999 Awake!, "...answers to these questions may help you to make wise choices in protecting your children."

    James Thomas Rook Jr. got a reaction from Srecko Sostar in Sister Cleaning the Kingdom Hall   
    It's OK ...
    The Society only cares about BROTHERS wearing tight pants at the Kingdom Hall.

    Oh my word!  I hadn't even thought of that comparison.... Wow.....
    Food for thought.
    I honestly didn't think a thing when I saw the photo.
    And at our get togethers at the park and lake I've never even thought about that.
    Why such a focus on young men's pant legs? When we can see the sisters ankles?
