Giants Causeway, Ireland

IrishEi says Giants Causeway is great but the nearby Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge is the one you shouldn't miss.

I arise today, through
The strength of heaven,
The light of the sun,
The radiance of the moon,
The splendor of fire,
The speed of lightning,
The swiftness of wind,
The depth of the sea,
The stability of the earth,
The firmness of rock.
-- Part of "St. Patrick's Breastplate," a prayer/hymn asking for protection. Called a "lorica" type prayer because it invokes a kind of armor of God. ("Lorica" being a Latin word for cuirass or breastplate, and seen in the name of "Lorica Segmnetata," segmented armor. Also seen in Lorica Hamata, or Roman chain mail.
According to legend, St. Patrick said this prayer during an ambush by an Irish king.

To be honest it sounds like more of a spell than a prayer, but that's just the part I excerpted. The rest of it is mostly about Jesus and the Trinity.

Pandas sure do live the life of Reilly.

Must be nice.




This dog's got it, and isn't afraid to flaunt it.

Puppy doesn't really understand "sharing" yet. Check out the move he pulls at the end. He's a regular Dusty Bottoms.

In case you missed it: Happy penguin wants hugs.

Cat wants his "Me Space."

If these dogs attack you, you'll... well you'll probably be fine. Your sweater might get a little slobbery, though.

Those who remember this old cartoon might enjoy seeing the real life version.

Oh no he didn't.

Steve Inman: Chaz shows off his car-wrangling skillz.

Fur missile.

Thanks to Bertram Cabot, Jr. for those Nitter links.

In case you missed it:

Maybe the happiest dog:

Baby goat doesn't understand why cat won't play with him.

Cat doesn't understand who let this psychopath in the yard.
