The Grigori The Watchers The Lord spoke: "Have no fear, Enoch, good man and scribe of goodness. Come hear my voice. Go speak to the Watchers of Heaven, who have sent you to intercede for them. Tell them, You should intercede for men, and not men for you. (1 Enoch) In the early days after the Fall, before the demons had escaped from Hell and before the War had begun in earnest, the Seraphim Council debated long and long about how best to safeguard humanity. Seemingly in answer, God created the Grigori, the Eight Choir. The Grigori were truly the most "human" of angels. The Grigori were also the only angels who really felt comfortable on Earth, and who didn't mind staying there. It made them very, very effective at their jobs. The "Second Fall" In 11,600 B.C., it came to the attention of Heaven that the Grigori had become entirely too human; they had taken wives, started families, and some were even succumbing to debauchery, immersing themselves in corporeal pleasures.

Learn whether you can reuse potting soil : HGTVGardens Q: Can I reuse old potting soil? When I started out as a container gardener I could not find literature that addressed this issue, the implication being that one would start out fresh each spring. This is fine when we’re talking about a pair of containers flanking the front door, but when containers ARE your garden, and the soil has to be carried up three flights of stairs without an elevator… I threw caution to the wind that second year and have never looked back. Potted soil is not technically soil at all. In the springtime, just before planting: Replenish depleted potted soil with organic matter such as compost or manure.

NASA Indoor Plants Flashcards: The world's largest online library of printable flash cards Electrical Sensitivity – Research, Diagnosis and Treatment Electrical sensitivity (ES), Electromagnetic sensitivity, EMF sensitivity, Electrosensitivity, Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS), Intolerance to electromagnetic fields, Electrical Hypersensitivity, microwave sickness, radiation sickness, radio wave sickness…..there are many different terms used to describe this condition. In this article I will use the term electrical sensitivity. Professor Olle Johansson of Sweden, one of the leading scientists working in this area, defines electrical sensitivity as a functional impairment: Electrical sensitivity means different things to many different people. “EHS is characterized by a variety of non-specific symptoms, which afflicted individuals attribute to exposure to EMF.” The phrasing “which afflicted individuals attribute to exposure to EMF” also attests to the controversy surrounding this subject. Research into the health effects of EMF exposure began in earnest in the late 1960s and continues to this day. How do I know this? Sensitization

40 of the world's weirdest flowers In the world of floristry, beauty is a common thing. But as with most things in life, that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. #1. Monkey Face Orchid (Dracula simia) Let’s face it (pun intended), this little guy didn’t take a whole lot of imagination to name;“dracula” because of it’s two long, fang-like petals and “simia” for its resemblance to primates.The two dark little eyes, fuzzy dotted eyebrows, and furry little nose and beard area bear striking simian resemblances that become even more obvious when viewed from a distance. The Monkey Face Orchid is rare oddity so don’t get upset if you’ve never seen one before. #2. The White Bat Plant is one of the world’s largest and most unusual flowers. #3. With more than 25,000 different kinds of orchids on the planet it’s no wonder that more than a couple of them made our weird list. #4.Corpse Flower (Rafflesia keithii) Next on our list comes a rather morbid yet beautiful flower— Rafflesia keithii, or, the Corpse Flower. #5. Is it an alien?

Your Majesties, Royal Highnesses, Excellencies, Members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Nobel Laureates, my brothers and sisters: On behalf of all the women of Liberia, the women of Africa, and women everywhere in the world who have struggled for peace, justice and equality, I accept with great humility the 2011 Nobel Prize for Peace.

Sleeve City USA - Cases, Sleeves and Storage for Everything that Spins DIY: Sharpie Tie Dye This is a great project for kids, or adults. I first saw the idea on the blog found here. All you need are some Sharpies, rubbing alcohol and something to drip it from (I had a syringe), and a t-shirt, or other clothing. I put a piece of cardboard in my tank top to prevent bleeding. Step 1: Use the Sharpies to make marks on your t-shirt. Step 2: Drip some drops of rubbing alcohol. Watch your design expand Step 3: Dry your t-shirt completely before washing. After I washed it the colors faded, but I still like the look: TIP: After drying the shirt with a hair dryer, allow it to set for 24 hours before washing.
