Lord have mercy!
As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Glory to God!

Big boys, when I and my late brother were born, we weighed two times less than them.

Oddly we were also named after Archangels. We: Michael and Raphael, SakranMM's: Michael and Gabriel

Thanks for the prayers, everyone.  Mother and the angelic children are doing fine (mom and I are a bit sleep-deprived, but ok otherwise.)
