Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged: it’s not what you think – Life Lesson #63

We’ve all heard the phrase “judge not lest ye be judged”, or some variation of it – coming from the Bible and found in a couple of places; most popular (if that’s a thing) in Matthew 7:1.

Is Grumpy Cat Being Used? ABUSED?

Is Grumpy Cat Being Used? ABUSED?

I read an interesting post the other day. Something that caught my eye at one of the social/writing sites I belong to – Persona Paper. In the post, the writer was discussing the possibility that Grumpy Cat, the miserably faced little kitty we’ve all come to know and love, might actually be an exploited animal. You may read all about right here. I took an interest because he brought up a couple good points. I’m not going to spoil his post for you but I will say that … Read more…
