Have nothing to do with the [evil] things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light... [For] when all things are brought out into the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed...

More Reasons to Carry

Mountain Lion (2)

Here kitty, kitty! (Photo credit: Beyond the Trail)

A mountain lion might eat my dog. I live less than a mile from where the attack occurred. A man was walking his dachshund when a mountain lion attacked the dog, tore his leash from the owner’s hand, and ate him.

The rate is 6.7% on accounts under 100,000 euros and 9.9% on accounts over 100,000. It was imposed on Saturday even before the Cyprus government met to approve it. In other words,
