Direct (760) 504-5720 Ask Pastor Rick Religion In The News Holy Site In Iraq Destroyed • The release of a recent video shows ISIS members smashing a tomb in Mosul, Iraq. The tomb is traditionally thought to be the burial place of the prophet Jonah, a holy site for Christians and many Muslims. Mosul, the second-largest city in Iraq, is built on and adjacent to the ancient Assyrian city of Nineveh, the setting for the biblical book of Jonah and once the most powerful capital of the ancient world. For manypeople familiar with the biblical story, Nineveh is inseparable from the figure of Jonah• The group's action destroyed CA E one of the few physical traces of Old Testament history remaining in Iraq. Source: CNN, summarized by Pastor Rick Ask Pastor Rick Does God have a sense of humor? rve read many theology books and have never read that humor was one of God's immutable characteristics, but I think He has a great sense of humor. I get a glimpse of it everyday when I look in the mirror! Some of the statements in the Bible are a crack-up as well. Take Proverbs 11:22, for example. It says, "Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful face on an empty head." I don't know about you, but I find that extremely funny. Not only .does God have a sense of humor, He wants His people to have one as well. Again the author of Proverbs writes, "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."

C00ol.00r0000br00r00 3LJ,I by Lyn de Jersey Lyn de Jersey British national married to an American and living in .the Lake Henshaw area for the past year. She started keeping a diary of the birds and plants she sees around, and other things that interest her. It began as a record for her own benefit so that, for example she could compare bird migration patterns year on year. It's developed over the weeks into a story of her journey, as a foreigner, to settle in an allen and unknown environment. May 15 2014 I forgot about the wild turkeys! It must have been the height of the mating season a couple of weeks ago. Everywhere you looked there were cock turkeys in full display, tails fanned and waggling scarlet wattles. The hens were unimpressed but I thought it was a good show. I still see the odd single male forlornly displaying but a fortnight ago they were in flocks competing for the ladies. The black phoebes' mating ritual was spectacular too, whirling up and down at high speed• The towhees are back in the garden after a short absence. I hadn't realized they were gone until I saw them again this morning. The Say's phoebes are very tame and don't bat an eyelid if they're in the bath and a human strolls past. Hummingbirds even more so. If I'm working in the garden a hummer won't think twice about buzzing my ear and I love the way they hover outside the window when we're sitting indoors in the early evening. I like to think they're peering in to see what we're up to. Mark says they're just looking at their reflection in the glass. He's probably right but my explanation is more romantic. The orioles, on the other hand, are quite nervous and take flight at the slightest sound or movement. The females seem bolder than the males, possibly because their plumage is duller and they don't feel so conspicuous. I've been watching a pair around the bath for a few days. The female dives in and has a whale of a time. The male perches close, shuffles to the end of the twig, thinks better of it and flies off. I've observed this ritual several times. I've started calling them Mr & Mrs B (Bullock's oriole, see?). A couple of days ago they were doing the • usual, then Mr B finally found his courage and jumped in. All of a sudden there were three of them in there - Mr & Mrs B and another male. Then I saw another pair perched on top on the veggie garden. We have lots of orioles! The front garden is looking miserable now. It got weed whacked. So a month ago it was a beautiful sea of blue, dotted with pink and yellow; now it's an ugly parched brown and flat - apart from the gopher hills and a tiny patch I roped off where I planted a wild flower seed mix. I managed to run outside in time to stop the gardeners from shaving all the flowers off the pyracantha so at least there will be some berries for the birds this winter. Big excitement on the flora front though. It was the Julian wild flower show last week; such a joy to see them in the flesh, so to speak, rather than looking at photos in a book. On Saturday I attended a talk by a local ecologist on how to recognise and deal with invasive non-native weed species. It was an intimate affair - aside from 3 of the organisers, just me in the audience. We went for lunch together afterwards and I got so much information and answers to many questions about all sorts of' things and met some lovely local lady native plant enthusiasts. It was wonderful. I described the snake - probably gopher. Great! Let's have more of those. The gopher hills - most likely a lot of them are ground squirrels. Not so good. They do as much damage as the gophers. Got confirmation that you have to protect plantings from underground root nibblers with wire cages - no getting around that one. Also the majority, if not all, the wild grasses I have are non-natives and must be eliminated to create an environment conducive to natives. A daunting prospect. Best to take a long view, start with a small area and keep working outwards. It was a shot in the arm to meet people who share my enthusiasm for native planting and don't look at me as if I'm a madwoman who wants a garden full of weeds. A little aside: I lust can't bring myself to call it a yard. Why is that? It's a source of confusion because here a garden is a place you grow vegetables and all the rest is a yard. To me, a yard is a tiny, concreted patch behind the house, walled or fenced on all sides, of the type seen commonly in English terraced rows. You might have a thin strip of soil down one or two sides, and maybe a few pots. There's usually a shed or c0al cellar in the bottom corner, sometimes an old outside iav. As soon as you have something big enough to grow stuff it's a garden. Another one is soil. Here, it's dirt. I suppose at some point I'll have to stop resisting and succumb to the American terminology. Ho hum. ft
