    The cat in ancient Egypt was a sacred and respected animal. It was in Egypt that cats were first domesticated more than 4000 years ago, and around 2000 BCE that the fully domesticated cat was brought into the houses of Egyptians.

    The ancient Egyptians took their cats on hunting trips instead of dogs, and statues of cats were placed outside the house to protect the inhabitants and to ward off evil spirits. This showed that the cat had become an integral part of ancient Egyptian family life.

    Cats were not only protected by almost every occupant of Egypt, but also by the law. So extreme in fact was the devoutness of the Egyptian culture to the cat, that if a human killed a feline, either intentionally or unintentionally, that human was sentenced to death.

    Laws were set that also forbade the exportation of cats, though more often than not, many were smuggled to the neighboring Mediterranean countries.

    The cat held a powerful spot in the history of Egypt. While she protected the land and its people, she also protected the mystique that was and is the cat in ancient Egypt.

    You can't tattoo a cat you heathen. It's against all codes of decent behaviour towards another human. I mean cat I think, anyway its wrong anyway, well unless it's a Chinese dragon and then it's ok. I think. Maybe not but whatever it's only a cat.

    I should have stayed in the cellar!

    Attached is pictorial proof that grandma and I are Playbook fans. Best thing about it is that I now get less and less "tech support" phone calls from her. Her Jedi skills are growing!My grandma's rockin' a 64 GB Playbook!-image.jpg

    Our 90-year old neighbor loves my PlayBook too. He keeps borrowing it and I just wondered why. So, one time, I sneaked into his window to see what he is doing with my PlayBook. I just noticed that he typed some site (probably) and he is way too slow that I noticed the fly from his coffee managed to get a swim because its becoming colder, went to his kitchen and came back with his friend...

    Then my neighbor press "go". He put down the PB, go to the bathroom. And at speed less than the speed of a dying turtle, I noticed that the browser keeps loading (with its circle circling waiting thing). Heard the flush of the toilet and by the same pace going to the bathroom and coming back to the sofa, the site has been loaded. And he smile like he is on time...

    If that happens to my 9-year old nephew, the PlayBook would be flying across the street...
