    Another despot has seen his reign end, who will be next? There are still a number of them left in the world. It is interesting to note that Qaddafi’s army didn’t put up that much of a fight in many areas because they were not really loyal to Gadding & sons at all, they simply feared him, and that fear ended when they could see he was on the verge of defeat.

    A busy week with Libya, earthquakes and a hurricane. Hopefully, next week will be quieter.

    They noticed once again that animals were acting oddly just before the earthquake hit this area. Animals at the national zoo began acting strange anywhere from ten seconds to fifteen minutes before the quake depending on the species. Female monkeys grabbed their babies and went into shelters. Lemurs climbed high into trees. But how do you know, if you see an animal, or several animals, behaving oddly that an earthquake is coming? There may be a number of other reasons for odd behavior. Two days after the quake, I was sitting on my deck reading when my two dogs came up on the deck and sat very close to me. It is quite unusual for both of them to do that so I was worried, but nothing happened. They were probably just concerned about some approaching thunder storms.

Only a week to go until the annual convocation in Reno.

Bill Keller, the editor, believes some of these candidates don’t agree with separation of church and state.
