Mor, maybe it is a Sign of Blessing.

I heard that some Indian-Americans write home to the Old Country or visit there as a way to find mates.
What do you think of this option?

I will need a CV and a recent photograph of you if you want me to help you in this way.
Well, I dont know what your circumstances are or why you wouldnt choose this option. I guess I could do the mail order thing sometime.

Peace.

Good luck and Selam.

I for one am scandalized that Mor declined to lift his voice in acclamation of the great spiritual truths revealed to him.

Only queen bees mate, and as it is plainly obvious monarchy is itself an icon of the heavenly kingdom,  when such an apparition should quite literally fall from the heavens to his feet, Mor should have ejaculated great plaudits of victory before prostrating himself fully before the Creator.

Anaxios! His actions show he is unworthy of such visions!
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

I have followed the Holy Fathers' teaching and practice of Apostolic/Scriptural patriarchal gender, marriage and family theology and life, instead of the failed current demonic, family destroying, divorce producing Freudian/feminist psychological recent innovations. This solid family supporting theology has produced a true foundation for mass internal and external defeat of all Indian call centers.

I have locked voting for the poll question because it is no longer relevant. 

I am in love.

Most nights, as I take my vespertine anti-fat perambulation through my local area, I am loudly and angrily barked at by the dozen or so dogs living along my route.  They are big dogs and small dogs.  Dogs owned by attractive women who apparently aren't reciprocating my sincere interest in any discernible way and dogs owned by vicious, hateful, abominable faux Italian ex-pat men from NJ.  I have assumed that these dogs either hate me or they are alerting me to the presence of life-threatening but as of yet undiagnosed terminal illnesses within my very body.  Or they are barking at demons. 

But yesterday, I visited some relatives, who recently acquired the puppy who is the object of my affections in this thread.  She didn't bark at me; she licked my limbs and smiled, light emanating from her big, beautiful eyes.  We walked, we ran, we played with a ball, we cuddled.  She is a dream.

Are the dogs in my neighbourhood the anomaly?  Or will my relatives' puppy eventually join in their cacophony once her ability to discern invisible realities matures?

The bird's nest that I moved to the Weber grill from the Propane grill is empty.
Last year some pigeons I think nested at my neighbors, very nice birds, I watched as they "birded" their youth into flight. That was neat. I don't like dogs. I hope that the birds I "relocated" are happy parents now, too. They did return to the Weber grill to care for the baby, many times.

Masterful.

I was trying to think of some joke having to do with the grill, but this is genius.

My work's polished glass front is bird murder. I think they confuse it for open sky.

Anyway, at least once a week, if you're in the front reception/bullpen area, you'll hear a loud thump and — if you go outside — there'll be a dead or dazed bird on the sidewalk.

At least, that's how it used to be.

A couple of feral cats have taken up residence in the landscaping between the sidewalk and the street, and whenever a bird hits the window, one of the cats will streak out, grab it as soon as it hits the ground, and disappear back into the foliage. Now, all I ever find is feathers.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

If the bosses care, there are a number of different measures that can be taken to prevent birds from mistaking the windows for open air.

But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."

The whole scaffold-of-Indians-with-fans thing is aesthetically controversial.
