WITH Easter upon us, thoughts turn to chocolate eggs, hot cross buns and tales of the Easter bunny. And to mark, revellers are already stocking up on sweet treats and arranging Easter egg hunts. бBut what is the history of the tradition and why are bunnies and eggs so symbolic? Why do we buy Easter eggs? During the Christian calendar event, itБs become customary to buy chocolate eggs. The sweet treats have a hollow centre, which has become a symbol of JesusБ empty tomb. According to the Bible, the Son of GodБs body was laid out in the tomb after crucifixion. The scriptures state that when the stone covering the entrance was moved, the corpse was nowhere to be found and onlookers discovered that Jesus had risen. This is another reason why eggs are a common part of the religious ritual, as

My observation is that there are very few baptized members of the SDA church who post here very much. I post at times and follow some of the threads and post when I feel the need. First of all Seventh Day Adventists do recognize that Dec. 25th. is not when Christ was born. Nothing new there. Some Adventists who are in a very small minority shun the day because of its origins. I do not fault them in any way. The Bible tells us to be convinced in our own minds. Other Adventist's who are likely in the majority at least in North America celebrate Christmas pretty much the same way most other Christians do. ...
Add the fact that college campuses have become meat markets, that internet exposure means we're becoming sexually more mature much earlier in life (yet we're getting married and having babies later than ever) and what are we left with? Huge numbers of sexually active young women who are not socially ready to "settle down". To put it simply: who needs to the bother of a live-in lover? We have careers, social lives and sexual needs. Love is built on years of struggle, on compromise and discussion and dead-ends from which you claw your way out. I don't have time for all that. Being someone's mistress, on the other hand, offers a relationship that s physically gratifying and fulfils a number of emotional needs, minus the messy reality of sharing a life with someone. Giving up the privileges
Q: What does it mean when I have undigested food in my poop? Many high-fiber foods, like corn, leafy greens, and certain nuts and grains, often pass through you only partially digested because the enzymes in your system don't break them down fully. Eating more slowly, really chewing each bite, drinking plenty of water, and consuming probiotic-rich foods (yogurt, kefir) are all smart steps to take to keep your digestive tract running smoothly and your stool looking "normal. " (A healthy poo may look different from person to person. But, in general, stool should be a shade of brown and soft enough that it's easy to pass, but still compact. ) RELATED: В Though it may be a little gross, the occasional bit of undigested food in your (otherwise normal-looking) number two is typically nothing
While it is normal for male dogs to squat to urinate, dogs who suddenly begin squatting after a history of lifting their legs may be letting you know something is wrong. It could be a sign of urinary incontinence, or a bladder- or kidney-related issue. When your dog doesn t realize he s urinating, he will likely squat in response to the urine stream once he catches on to it happening. While urinary incontinence and subsequent squatting may be signs that your four-legged pal is getting older, it s wise to take him to the veterinarian to rule out bladder or kidney issues, regardless of how old he is. In both male and female dogs squatting and leg lifting are acceptable behaviors. Some males may squat to relieve themselves, while some females may choose to lift a leg. ...
Since have been introduced, you no longer need a credit card to do these things. In fact, you can do everything with a debit card that you can with a credit card, except spend money that you do not have. You should not be doing that anyway. Debit cards can be used anywhere a credit card can. This completely debunks the statement that you need one to rent a car. The car rental company will put a hold against your debit card for a specific amount, so be sure to have that much available in your checking account. While it may be convenient to have a credit that you use solely for renting cars or paying for hotel rooms, they are not necessary. Knowing this can help you. It can be easier to manage a car rental or a hotel rental while one vacation with a credit card, but you can have the money
It s the most famous military installation in the world, yet it doesn t officially exist. Area 51-- a site for covert Cold War operations-- has long been a magnet for crackpots, conspiracy theorists, and the overly curious. While there may not be truth to the rumours that Area 51 is a haven for UFO s and extraterrestrials, it s clear that the US government has been up to something in Area 51 for decades, and it turns out there is a kernel of truth to even some of the wildest speculation. Underground tunnels Hidden enemy aircraft Secret government UFO files Now, after years of silence, for the first time Area 51 insiders spill their secrets and reveal what s really been going on inside the most secretive place on earth.

Any interaction with another person has the potential to involve some type of mind game. In fact, many of us are quite good at playing mind games in relationships. The problems start when the mind games are used for dubious purposes. Unscrupulous people want to be in control and many have learned how to push other people s buttons and pick up on subtle emotional signals in order to manipulate the other. Mind games involve manipulation, twisting the facts and creating doubt to destabilise another person. Here are some examples of mind games in relationships and tips to counteract them: The more tumultuous someone s childhood was, the more likely they are to engage in mind games. As a powerless child faced with unfair and unreasonable parents, children learn ways to manipulate the
Plants use a complex chemical reaction called photosynthesis to create food from light energy, carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and water. Each of these performs a critical portion of the photosynthesis process, dependent on the others. While light energy can be easily absorbed from the sun and carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, water is sometimes scarce. Not only is water used directly in the process of photosynthesis for its hydrogen, it is also used to prevent dehydration, indirectly supporting the successful creation of food for the plant. The leaves of plants contain openings called stomata, which are used for the exchange of gases. Carbon dioxide, combined with water in photosynthesis, is drawn in through the stomata. Oxygen, a byproduct of the process, is released through these
