Ah! Easter Week!

Soon, eggs, hot cross buns, stories of love and sacrifice, airings of the ten commandments, and giant rabbits will fill lives everywhere.

I like Easter, and I'm glad especially of the message that it brings. (and yes, the chocolate too.)

I'm just curious as to why they show The Ten Commandments... is it because it's the best "religious" movie out there? Sort of weird mixing Moses and Jesus... Mo, well he really sort of was the action hero sort of Figure, old Test sort of stuff... Really Kicking tush for God. As opposed to the New Test single person sacrifice...

Who knows, maybe they'll whip up a grand version of that story sometime soon.. better than showing the 7th sign on tv. :)

Bob Ross

We've all seen him. On some lazy afternoon when you're flipping through the channels and you happen to get the PBS station, where there is a middle aged white man with an afro to rival anyone of the Jackson Five's. He's painting some sort of nature scene and all the while talking quietly and gently about happy bushes, lonely trees and the squirrels he lives with. I quote, "If you've never lived with a squirrel, you've never lived." What a statement... His most famous mantra, the one that makes most people realize his wisdom, "We don't make mistakes, we just have happy accidents" is simply beautiful. He had a great love for the other creatures on this earth, and preserved some of the world's beauty in his paintings.

Thanks Bob!
