Sunspots 388

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:

Humor:  An academic journal which rejects all material submitted to it for publication. (It ceased "publication" several months ago, but its web site is still available.)

(Humorous, or odd, to us, anyway.) Some people in Senegal take their sheep seriously. Very seriously. The Huffington Post reports on a televised sheep beauty contest.

Science: National Public Radio on apple trees in the US. They are dwarfs!

Computing: Microsoft offers a free (and, according to an expert who should know -- definitely not me -- safe) site that evaluates the strength of a password for you. All you have to do is to type it in. I discovered that one of my passwords, which I thought would be pretty difficult to crack, was weak. Whoops!

I was curious about the sheep, so I googled for pictures:

No. 7 is a good portrait of Papis General Fall, and No. 11 shows Dodo with his umbrella!

Re the creation of light, I don't know what light God created before He created the sun, moon and stars, but in Revelation 21:23 we see that the glory of God gives light to the eternal city.

Thanks, FancyHorse.

Yes, the relationship between God and light is interesting, and it is unlikely that we understood all of it. Perhaps we can't.

Thanks for the note on the sheep.
