“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F.

And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

An Owl As You've Never Seen It Before

The video you're about to see is absolutely stunning.  It was taken using a Photron Full HD High Speed Camera SA2, and the images will blow you away.  The shots are of an Owl flying towards a camera at an amazing slow speed, and it looks as if it's coming at you.

Ryan collects piggies, for piggy rights, and I collect owls, because I think they're a fascinating bird.  I've collected owls since I was a child, but Ryan on the other hand, started collecting piggies when he read my post, Concealed Cruelty.  In it was a video of piggy abuse that forever changed his life, and ever since then, he's been piggy rights this, and piggy rights that;  I don't even cook with pork any longer.

Fortunately for me, the only thing close to Owl abuse that I have ever seen was in "The Legend of the Guardians" when the evil Pure Ones kidnap some young owls and make them their slaves.  Just horrible!

Check out the awesome video below:

PIGGY RIGHTS! You're so sweet my angel. Yeah, this video definitely proves one thing: Your animal would so kick my animal's ass. Scary. Love you bunches. Thanks for supporting the piggies. I will also keep an eye out for a black stuffed piggy for Jessie too.
