The Moon has turned to blood

The moon has turned to blood, and like the Bible says

that is one sure sign we’re at the End of Days.

Astronomers may smirk and say it isn’t so;

but just in case they’re wrong, my sins I shall forego.

Perhaps if I am good today and then tonight

my soul to Hell will not be ordered to take flight.

And if the bloody moon brings no Apocalypse,

I’ll be back in the bar — leaving handsome tips.  


Happy Pachyderm Day!

Elephant Appreciation Day

It’s Elephant Appreciation Day! This holiday created in 1996 by Mission Media Inc. founder Wayne Hepburn. As the story goes, his daughter gave him a paperweight of elephants on parade as a gift. He became completely fascinated by them, and amassed an enormous collection of elephant books and other paraphernalia. His interest led to the creation of this day, where everyone can take a moment to reflect on these amazing creatures.

You may not realize just how unique elephants are! Here are 5 fun facts:

1) African elephants are the largest land mammals on the planet!
2) Contrary to cartoons, elephants don’t like peanuts.
3) Elephants can live to be over 70 years old.
4) They are the only mammal that can’t jump.
5) Elephants can cry, play, laugh, and have incredible memories!

Show how much you care about these gentle giants by donating to a sanctuary or foundation, or learning more about their habitat and behavior.
