Musings on science, the Bible, and fantastic literature (and sometimes basketball and other stuff).
God speaks to us through the Bible and the findings of science, and we should listen to both types of revelation.
The title is from Psalm 84:11.
The Wikipedia is usually a pretty good reference. I mostly use the World English Bible (WEB), because is public domain. I am grateful.
This photo is of a poinsettia plant, in Southern California. The red things aren't petals, they are modified leaves, or bracts. The actual flowers are the smaller yellow structures. This particular branch is part of a plant that is at least 10 feet tall. It is not twining around the utility pole, it just happens to be growing in front of it. (Note the branch behind the bracts on the lower right.) To see more of our photos, or a larger size of this one, click on the photo. You will be taken to our Flickr photos. No password is needed, and you won't be besieged by pop-up ads.
A number of plants are associated with Christmas. One web page that deals with that subject is here.
