“Only my cats really understand me. It would probably be good for us to recognize the undeniable fact that Cats rule!”
-Charles TowneA friend said to me, “I love my cats so much, why, I wouldn’t take a million dollars for them!”We had just finished eating dinner and were sitting in the living room relaxing when the doorbell rang.On the way to the door, I glanced out the window and couldn’t help but be surprised to see a white Rolls Royce limousine parked in front of our humble abode.When I answered the door, there stood a very distinguished looking couple; probably in their mid-fifties.The man, a right friendly sort, without any preamble, got down to the reason for their visit.“Hello, Mr. Towne, my name is Nathan Farthingale, and this is my wife Doris. We are here to purchase your cats.”Well as you can imagine, I laughed.  I mean, I wasn’t about to sell my cats and I told him as much.“I am sorry; Mr. Farthingale is it?  But there must be some terrible mistake, our cats aren’t for sale.”“Oh no, there is no mistake.”  He went on, “We heard about your incredible cats and without even seeing them we decided that we must have them, no matter the cost.”You probably won’t believe it when I tell you that I laughed in Mr. Farthingale’s face as I said, “O.K., what’s the joke? Who sent you here?”This time Doris Farthingale spoke up. “Oh, rest assured Mr. Towne, this is no joke, and as my husband has already said, there is no mistake.  We have heard of your wonderful cats and we have made up our minds, we absolutely must have the adorable creatures.”Well, to make a long story short, I invited the Farthingales into our home, after all, it was the least I could do.They had no more than made themselves comfortable when all three of our cats shamelessly descended upon our guests like a feline plague.Our large Morris cat jumped up into Nathan Farthingale’s lap and began shedding blond cat hair all over his very expensive black suit, while another draped itself over the back of his chair and began purring so loudly it threatened to drown out our conversation.  The remaining cat sat in Doris Farthingale’s lap and began kneading her arm and purring as it gazed into her eyes hypnotically.What the heck was going on?  Our cats were never this friendly!  Was it a conspiracy?  Were our cats actually looking for a new home?“Oh Nathan,” Doris Farthingale crooned, “Aren’t they wonderful?  We must have them! I simply won’t take no for an answer.”About this time as you can imagine my wife and I were becoming very uncomfortable, I mean, after all, these were our babies, our friends, our kitties, and we love them very much.Nathan Farthingale reached into his coat pocket and pulled out a roll of bills large enough to choke the proverbial Clydesdale as he said, “Mr. Towne, Mrs. Towne, I will pay you five thousand dollars for your cats.I glanced at my wife and then looked at Nathan Farthingale.  “Mr. Farthingale, I am very sorry but the cats are not for sale.”And with hardly a pause Farthingale said, “Oh pardon me, I meant five thousand dollars… apiece!”Mrs. Farthingale suddenly exclaimed, “Nathan Farthingale, you stop this bickering over pennies this instant and make these lovely folks an offer they can’t refuse, we must have these wonderful Kitties.”At this admonition from his wife Nathan Farthingale smiled sheepishly and said, “Oh, alright, fifty thousand dollars for each cat, and if you don’t mind we will pay cash. Well, to make a long story short, being cat lovers and all we naturally turned the Farthingale’s offer down.  After all, you can’t put a price on the love that only a cat can give. Can you?And then I woke up.You have a nice day now, and may your cats teach you.  A CAT LOVER’S PRAYER
“Dear Papa God, Is the devotion our cats display toward us an expression of your unreasonable love for us?  Yes, unreasonable, because no matter how hard I try I can’t rationalize myself as worthy of your infinite grace and love.  Just how much do you love each of us?  And how can we be worthy of such love?  As we are so far above our cats, so are you infinitely above us, and yet in my heart of hearts, I have no doubt that you love me.  What lessons can we learn from these creatures that you have entrusted to us?  Help us to be worthy of their love, devotion, and trust so that we can devote our lives to you in pure love and undying trust.  Thank you so very much, in Jesus’ Holy and wonderful name I ask it, Amen.”P.S. And Papa God, please don’t allow The Farthingales to come knocking at our door because no matter how much I love our cats that is, after all, an awful lot of money!Amen. Kristin, aint it the truth? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if people were as good to other people as they are to their pets? Sure, there are cases of abuse and neglect but overall we treat our pets responsibly. Don’t we? I wonder, do you suppose a person’s character could be calculated by the way they treat their pets? I mean, if a person is cruel or inconsiderate to their pets might that be a determining factor in the way they treat other human folks? Just wondering ’cause it just makes sense to me. Blessings on you dear one, ChazAnd Lord, please protect us from the likes of the Farthingales with all their money ’cause $50.000 per Katt is an awful lot of money! Amen charles towne April 6, 2018 at 9:38 am Mike McFadden Yeppir, and there are these cute little kitty tracks all over the litterbox of my mind! Blessings to you and yours my young friend, Chaz Reply April 1, 2018 at 8:37 am 17 COMMENTS Dear CSG, One thing I have learned in my life is that Papa God blesses us with wonderful gifts. His word declares this: “If you ask your father for a loaf of bread, would he give give you a serpent?” And then it continues, “Therefore, if your earthly father knows how to give good gifts, how much more does your Father in heaven know how to give good gifts?” Concerning the serpent thing, my big Morris cat gifted me with a coral snake one time minus it’s head. Yes, a wonderful creature is le pussy katt. Thanks for the comment, Chaz Reply April 7, 2018 at 7:03 am Gymrat LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply April 1, 2018 at 12:11 pm April 6, 2018 at 8:01 pm richard Dear NH, this morning Hercules, my alpha cat, came to me with a lovely gift, a slightly used and totally deactivated cameleon, sans tail, that was, overall, a tad worse for wear. One thing that I have come to realize is that Papa God always gives good gifts. Many blessings to you and yours my dear friend, Chaz Thank you Papa God for giving us Jesus, Jesus who died for each of us, and was raised again into Glory, that we may have the great gift of life eternal! Help each of us to be a blessing to everyone we meet. We love you Father. In Jesus wonderful and blessed name I ask it, Amen Reply April 4, 2018 at 9:40 pm charles towne Reply Reply Reply Reply OK, I am not the best “cat person” around, at best, cats tolerate us as long as we are useful to them! The fact that we find them so lovable may be a strange lesson as to why we are loved! I am almost certain that at times my parents would have sold my brothers and myself to the Farthingdale without a second thought but I am not so sure about the cats and dogs! Still kind of unsure about that rating system! Dogs have masters and cats have staff. There is nothing better at waking a person up from a half asleep walk to the bathroom in the middle of the night than a big juicy hair ball strategically placed by one of our furry creatures. We have rescued many over the years and each has a very unique personality. One thing we have learned in life is that money can’t buy everything but it sure does pay vet, food and litter bills for the “staff” to keep up with our four legged friends. Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Charles Towne is first and foremost a Christian. An octogenarian, author, journalist, wildlife photographer, naturalist, caregiver, and survivor, his life has been and continues to be, a never-ending adventure filled with possibilities never imagined. He has adopted the philosophy that to Live fully, laugh uproariously, love passionately, and learn like there is no tomorrow, is a formula for a long and joy-filled life. Mike, each of my katts insist that I refer to them as the boss of boss’s, El Jeffe, Your highness, Your royal highness, the chief, sir, mam, etc. etc. etc. They all refer to me as, “Hey you!” when they are feeling charitable. I don’t really mind this subjugation because it keeps me humble. Excuse me, his royal highness is summoning me so I have to go clean the litter box. Chaz April 3, 2018 at 1:11 am charles towne Reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Richard ol pal, it is a sad statement when your folks would sell you and keep the pets! But then you and I would have been out of luck because the Farthingales wouldn’t have paid a premium price for either one of us. It’s like the gypsies when they kidnapped me, they had to pay the gypsies to take me back! Oh well, such is life on the crazy farm. Chaz Gymrat, that is proffound! Thanks oodles, Chaz April 6, 2018 at 9:53 pm charles towne Reply April 4, 2018 at 5:02 pm Entertaining dream! Glad you didn’t sell your cats to the Farthingale’s. Then your interpretation and prayer would have been much different, eh? We are so lucky to have our furry little creatures and their unconditional love. I hope the Farthingale’s don’t come knocking at my door. Ha ha. Dear Chuck….amusingly truthful. You know cats “rule the roost”…at least mine do.They love to share their hunting skills with us by bringing their creatures to our doorstep. Interesting animals and interesting people who own them……or do they own us? Thank you for the humor.May God continue to bless you daily. charles towne charles towne charles towne Remember pal, the Farthingales were only a dream but those darned gypsies were a very real danger. And as I remember we never would have gotten away with hacking up hairballs and leaving them on the floor for my good old pater to step in! Yeah, the katts had it much easier. Come to think about it though I sure do miss the folks. Nostalgically yours, ChazP.S. You were fed?

This project is the first of a three stage, 1100 apartment Master Plan developed by TCA in collaboration with the City of Sydney and the client for this highly significant site along the South Dowling Street corridor connecting Central Sydney with the Airport. The site forms a key part of the Victoria Park precinct and wider Green Square Urban Redevelopment undertaken by the State Government and City Council. TCA have worked in this market sector for some years, driven by interests in cities, the making of integrated urban projects, and improving quality-of-living outcomes for people within a highly constrained, over-riding commercial context. Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanThe Master Plan was set out in a way that facilitated opportunities for a high level of apartment amenity, together with a legible network of streets and publicly accessible courtyard/garden spaces for the public and residents to enjoy. Car-parking was located below ground to extend the ground plane through the site, creating high levels of accessibility and visual permeability. Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanCommercial constraints are endemic to the nature of this type of project and market sector. We see this as being a challenging but legitimate design parameter and are continually developing our understanding of how to produce robust design that is able to stand up to the rigours of value engineering, novation and rapid construction. This was also an opportunity to continue our interest in improving the way that this typology relates to the public domain. With the provision of useful and unambiguous public spaces throughout the site, all of the building’s facades become visible from and therefore a part of the public domain. There is a risk with this scale of development that an overwhelming agglomeration of buildings results in a relentless character and visually compromised public domain. Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanThis was achieved by resisting a site-wide uniform architectural parti and rather, making the expression of individual building relate to their immediate context. This more dynamic neighbourly relationship resulted in tactics such as the mega-scaled, framed and articulated architectural elements adjacent to the busy highway of Southern Cross Drive, the finer metallic modulation of the northern low rise façade, and the delicately textured and punctured masonry street wall facing Defries Avenue to the west. Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanThe tower form was generated by articulation of the plan into four vertical elements pin-wheeled around the core, with two distinctive, corner elements addressing the southern portal entry to the city and the city itself from the north. The multi-level stacked boxes forming these elements have identical floor plans and achieve their visual complexity through rotation of the brise-soleil elements outside of the façade line of enclosure. We felt that this was a cost-effective design strategy for achieving architectural diversity within the rigorous commercial constraints of the Sydney high-density residential market.

first_imgTCU vs Georgia: “Playing to win” The entrance to Daniel-Meyer Coliseum as it appeared in 2014 just prior the current to renovation. (AP Photo/Sharon Ellman) printEven with the delay of the opening of the Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena, Horned Frogs are excited to have some basketball games back on campus soon.TCU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Chris Del Conte announced this week that weather conditions and unforeseen circumstances have caused delays in the opening of the new basketball arena. “We have now chosen Dec. 20 as the opening date for our new basketball home,” Del Conte said in a media release Tuesday.Sophomore Katina Burke said the delay of the opening shouldn’t have any effect on the season, but she said “it’s a bummer” the renovations won’t be ready in time.Burke added that having the games so close to where students live should make it easier for students to attend the games.“Now that games are so close, there’s not really a reason for people not to be able to go,” Burke said.First-year student Mackinley Bullock said she thinks attendance will be high for the first couple of games.“I know I plan on going,” Bullock said. “I think people want to go see the renovations and how they’ve turned out.”Head basketball coach Trent Johnson said the team is excited to move into the arena, which underwent a $72 million renovation.“Ed Schollmaier and Rae Schollmaier have done an excellent job,” Johnson said in his press conference at the Big 12 Conference basketball media day. “Putting us in an environment this year that we’ll compete at a high level. It’s been a long time coming.”Bullock said the new arena will give the team a “fresh start.”“They are going to be really excited to play in their new arena,” Bullock said. “I feel like that will make them play well.”Johnson said it’s about the capability of beating the good teams and the good people, not about where they play their games.“You can have all the facilities in the world,” Johnson said. “But you’ve got to compete at a high level and win games.”The Nov. 13th season opener against Southeastern Louisiana will be played in the University Recreation Center. All other games, until the opening of the new arena, will be played at the Wilkerson-Greines Activity Center in Fort Worth, which hosted all TCU home games last season.

Lazare was arrested on 16 January on a charge of disseminating false reports.FM Liberté, which was closed by the police the same day as Lazare’s arrest, is not yet back on the air. But his lawyers plan to submit a request to the prosecutor for the station to be allowed to resume operating.—————-18.01.08 – Detained radio station manager granted provisional releaseRadio FM Liberté manager Djekourninga Kaoutar Lazar was released provisionally this afternoon, two days after his arrest on a charge of “disseminating a false report.” He is due to appear before a court in N’Djamena on 21 January. FM Liberté, which was closed by the police on 16 January, has still not been given permission to resume broadcasting.————–17.01.08 – Police close down N’Djamena radio station, arrest managerReporters Without Borders calls on the Chadian authorities to explain why the police yesterday raided privately-owned radio FM Liberté in N’Djamena, closed it down and arrested its manager, Djekourninga Kaoutar Lazar.“A raid on a respected radio station, its arbitrary closure and the arrest of its manager are methods one uses with gangsters,” the press freedom organisation said. “It is not a crime to express an opinion that does not concur with government policy. On the contrary, it is the press and public’s inalienable right. The government should act with restraint, even in a period of crisis, and should provide the public with an explanation for this show of force.”Some 15 policemen stormed into FM Liberté’s studios at 5:45 p.m. yesterday and asked to see Lazar. When told he was not there, they asked if they could inspect all the news programmes that had been broadcast since the start of the week. Editorial coordinator Madji Madji Odjitan refused, saying this was the job of the High Council for Communication (HCC).In response, the police closed down the station and arrested Odjitan, taking him to the headquarters of the criminal investigation department. He was freed a few hours later after Lazar turned himself in. Lazar is still being held at the headquarters of the criminal investigation department in N’Djamena. The government has not given an official explanation for his arrest.Government supporters have been staging demonstrations for the past few weeks in protest against what they call the “Sudanese aggression that is being prepared in the east of the country.” Opposition representatives have on several occasions criticised these demonstrations as “hypocritical” on FM Liberté.center_img News November 27, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Chad Reports Organisation January 22, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Prosecutor drops charges against N’Djamena radio station manager to go further The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa ChadAfrica last_img read more

Powell, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, requesting additional information.Waters responded to a Financial Times article which reported that Wells Fargo & Company “made a pitch to the Federal Reserve to remove an asset cap introduced in the wake of its fake accounts scandal, saying it would allow the US bank to extend support to businesses and customers hit by the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic.”“As you know, pursuant to its February 2018 consent order, the Federal Reserve restricted Wells Fargo’s growth until the firm develops and implements—and a third party independently evaluates—the governance and internal control improvements specified in the order,” the Chairwoman wrote. “The U.S. House Committee on Financial Services’ (“Committee”) ongoing oversight activities have revealed that Wells Fargo has yet to fully satisfy the requirements of the Federal Reserve’s February 2018 consent order. Pursuant to its legislative and oversight authority under House Rule X, 116th Congress, the Committee must know more about whether Wells Fargo requested that the Federal Reserve remove the asset cap and, if so, the Federal Reserve’s consideration of any such request.”Earlier this year, Waters called Wells Fargo a “lawless organization” that has caused harm to millions of consumers during.Wells Fargo CEO Charlie Scharf testified before the committee during the hearing titled “Holding Wells Fargo Accountable: CEO Perspectives on Next Steps for the Bank that Broke America’s Trust.”The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced in February that the bank will pay a $3 billion settlement over its account scandal dating back to 2016. Wells Fargo’s penalties include a $500 million fine to the SEC.According to the SEC’s order, between 2012 and 2016, Wells Fargo publicly touted to investors the success of its Community Bank’s “cross-sell” strategy, which it characterized as a key component of its financial success. According to the order, from 2002 to 2016, Wells Fargo opened millions of accounts of financial products that were unauthorized or fraudulent.Fellow committee member Patrick McHenry, however, noted that his colleagues on the other side of the aisle “made up their minds about Wells Fargo long ago.”He said that before the committee received any evidence in 2016, Waters said she had come to the conclusion that “Wells Fargo should be broken up. It’s too big to manage.”McHenry said that after reviewing nearly half a million documents and countless testimony, that breaking up the bank is not the answer.“Wells Fargo isn’t too big to manage. The findings of this document show it was grossly mismanaged,” he said. Tagged with: Financial services Wells Fargo Subscribelast_img read more
