I knew that adorable avatar looked familiar!

And what a neat post. A lot of these I didn't know, and my mom raised us up with the Bible's teachings.

God bless.

Wow, I've read a lot of the Bible, but missed most of these. Cool way to do Thursday Thirteen. Have a great TT and Valentine's Day. :)

I love these fantastic moments. I would have liked to join that Lefty convention.

Those are very interesting!! The Left-handed one is cool :)

I did one like this a few weeks ago before I started joining TT. The one we had in common was Og's bed.

Colleen said...

oh hey, did you have the list of 1850 rules for teachers? am I that daft?
Well, this is a very cool list, too! I was kind of surprised that I recognized several of them. :) And do you think #1 is part of the reasoning behind the red string tied around the wrists of kabalah followers?

Thanks for visiting everyone. The one about the lefties was interesting to me because I'm left handed. The text referring to Og's bed may be making reference to a sarcophagus instead of a regular bed....either way it's interesting. I never thought about the Kabalah string....I might have to look that up. :)

...and yes, you weren't seeing things regarding the avatar. I now control this site and the content on it as well as History Is Elementary. :) You guys are just too sharp.
