It grew and became a tree, and the birds perched in its branches.” 20 Again he asked, “What… Read more

I thought I had the stomach flu. But after 3 days of intense abdominal cramps, I called 911 and went to the ER.

My favorite cartoon characters of all time are those from Looney Tunes. Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, and Marvin the Martian never fail to crack me up. In one episode, Marvin points his “A-1 Disintegrating Pistol” at Daffy Duck, to which Daffy mockingly says, “Little does he realize that I have on my disintegration-proof vest!” Marvin fires the pistol and everything Daffy Duck is disintegrated, save for the vest, which floats in the air for a second before landing… Read more
