This came to me by e-mail.

HOW THE INTERNET STARTED

In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name
of Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the
name of Dot. And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of
shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she was often called
Amazon Dot Com.
And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why dost thou
travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou
canst trade without ever leaving thy tent?


And Abraham did look at her as though she were several
saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How,
dear?"


And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and
drums in between to send messages saying what you have
for sale, and they will reply telling you who hath the best
price. And the sale can be made on the drums and delivery
made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)."


Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have
her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were
an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had
at the top price, without ever having to move from his tent.


To prevent neighbouring countries from overhearing what the
drums were saying, Dot devised a system that only she and
the drummers knew. It was known as Must Send Drum Over
Sound (MSDOS), and she also developed a language to
transmit ideas and pictures - Hebrew To The People (HTTP).


And the young men did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the
greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic
Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Sybarites, or NERDS.
And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and
the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real
riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer, Brother
William of Gates, who bought off every drum maker in the land.
And indeed did insist on drums to be made that would work only
with Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks.


And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being
taken over by others." And Abraham looked out over the Bay of
Ezekiel, or eBay as it came to be known. He said, "We need a
name that reflects what we are."


And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators."
"YAHOO," said Abraham. And because it was Dot's idea, they
named it YAHOO Dot Com.
Abraham's cousin, Joshua, being the young Gregarious Energetic
Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was, soon started using Dot's drums
to locate things around the countryside. It soon became known
as God's Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (GOOGLE).
That is how it all began. And that's the . truth

Wow, this was interesting. A young mountain lion (cougar, puma, scientific name: Puma concolor), came up on the porch of a private home in the state of Colorado & had a showdown with a Maine Coon cat that lived inside the house!

There was a statue of a mountain lion, & there was also a mother mountain lion with the cub in one or two of the photos. Mountain lions are very beautiful animals, but I would not want to meet one in my yard or on my porch. They have been known to kill humans, especially mothers with cubs to feed if food is scarce or if they feel threatened.

Thanks for the article, Kitty! I already shared it on Facebook!

As I am very prone to all cats, I like to spend time with them at the zoo and I think it was last year when the leaves fell I spent some time there, watching the male walking around, on the dry leaves, without making as much as a sound! Very graceful!
