A South African Parks Ranger. "The Mohawk Chieftan" predicts the winter weather.

My friend "Chicago Charlie" sent me this great story.

"A Souht African Parks Ranger"

This Ranger is assigned to prevent poaching around the wildlife refuge area of Lanseria , South Africa . The way these animals interact with him is absolutely stunning! The lions seem to know he’s there to protect them.. His charm works with hyenas and lions too. Hyenas are usually vicious. Check out the pics taken in the river – amazing because lions hate water.

HOWEVER, as you'll see, the last two photygraffs are a couple that Cookie found while further researching this here Ranger and how heartwarm'n this story was fer both the Lions and the Hyenas

"Man, he sure was a good Ranger wasn't he mates??."


I think this next story is about "The Chief".....

It's late fall and the Indians on a remote reservation in South Dakota asked their new chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild.

Since he was a chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky, he couldn't tell what the winter was going to be like.

Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared.

But, being a practical leader, after several days, he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked, 'Is the coming winter going to be cold?'

'It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold,' the meteorologist at the weather service responded.

So the chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more firewood in order to be prepared.

A week later, he called the National Weather Service again. 'Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?'

'Yes,' the man at National Weather Service again replied, 'it's going to be a very cold winter.'

The chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find.

Two weeks later, the chief called the National Weather Service again. 'Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?'

'Absolutely, ' the man replied. 'It's looking more and more like it is going to be one of the coldest winters we've ever seen.'

'How can you be so sure?' the chief asked.

The weatherman replied, 'The Indians are collecting firewood like crazy.'

Remember this story whenever you get advice from a government official!

Hmmm, I find this MOST interesting!

Today, my buddy "Fish" frum down Kentucky way sent me this here short and most interesting article about a human "basement" protein called "Laminins". According to Wikepedia and Google, laminins are what holds the human body together, literally. For lack of a better word, they are the "glue" that holds the Human Body together.

Now Sir, Cookie is NOT a religious man (as you may have gathered by some of my previous posts). I DO NOT practice any organized religion, I am however a spiritual man who believes in a Higher Power that I personally choose to call GOD.

I have always felt and believed that both Science and Religion have the same end game as their goals, and that is to learn what is the meaning/purpose of life and where/how/when did life begin. The difference between Science and Religion is that they are taking different paths to the same end. Just my MHO mind ya.

Now Sir, never having heard of "Laminins" before, I researched this topic to check the veracity of the following article, and lo and behold, the below photygraff and article are TRUE!

" 'Laminins are a family of proteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in almost every animal tissue.' You see. Laminins are what hold us together. LITERALLY. They are cell adhesion molecules. They are what holds one cell of our bodies to the next cell. Without them, we would literally fall apart. And I knew all this already. But what I didn't know is what they LOOKED LIKE.

But now I do. And I have thought about it a thousand times since. Here is what the structure of laminin looks like. AND THIS IS NOT a 'Christian portrayal' of it. If you look up laminin in any scientific / medical piece of literature, this is what you will see.

Coincidence? Maybe, but another thing I've believed for a goodly portion of my life is that

"Coincidence is where God chooses to remain anonymous."

I had initially put in a Google link in this post for you to click on and go to a very well written article w/photos about Laminins, but it wouldn't fit correctly and was badly scewing the post and the blog, so you'll have to do yur own Google "Laminin" research if y'all wish to.
