Consciousness is not a phenomenon of the observable universe. It is that which makes the universe observable. Consciousness is the physical manifestation of God within us!

Fire at London Zoo!

Dear Friends: It is with a certain amount of interest I read this article about a fire at the London zoo yesterday, which is just down the road from us in Springbank Park. (Or just down the valley if ya want to look at it that way!)
London Zoo officials say a fire Saturday morning left one aardvark dead and four meerkats missing.
Staff members were treated for smoke inhalation and shock after the blaze broke out in the zoo cafe in the early morning hours.

More than 70 firefighters helped control the fire near an animal petting area and the meerkat enclosure. Officials say it is not clear what happened to the missing meerkats and it is possible others are missing as well.

 Officials are checking the rest of the animal population and the zoo remained closed to the public on what had been expected to be a busy day at the popular facility.

  London Fire Brigade Station Manager Clive Robinson said firefighters will stay at the zoo to dampen any small pockets of fire.
 Now here's the thing folks, we live at the top of the Thames river ravine and it is a straight line to the zoo which is just over a kilometre upriver from us and I'm sure I saw a couple of meerkats out in our backyard this morning, although neither hide nor hair of any aardvarks!



OH WAIT.......! I'm sorry folks but after reading another report on the fire I saw it was at the zoo in London, ENGLAND! (Forget what I just said kids. Maybe it was just a squirrel.)
