The world's largest frog has a fitting name; the Goliath frog.
Goliath frogs call the rivers of Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea home where they spend their days eating insects, crustaceans, fish, and other amphibians.
A Goliath frog grows up to 13 inches in body length and with outstretched legs can reach over 2 1/2 feet in length.
If you're thinking  frog legs', the Goliath frog weighs about 7 pounds so one frog should suffice as a meal but you'd better be quick when catching them as they can jump up to 10 feet in a single bound.


World's first Church

Jordanian archaeologists have uncovered what they believe to be the world's first church dating from 33 to 70 AD.
"We have uncovered what we believe to be the first church in the world, dating from 33 AD to 70 AD," the head of Jordan's Rihab Centre for Archaeological Studies, Abdul Qader al-Husan, told reporters according to The Age.
He said it was uncovered under Saint Georgeous Church, which itself dates back to 230 AD, in Rihab in northern Jordan near the Syrian border.
"We have evidence to believe this church sheltered the early Christians, the 70 disciples of Jesus Christ," Husan said.
These Christians, who are described in a mosaic as "the 70 beloved by God and Divine," are said to have fled persecution in Jerusalem and founded churches in northern Jordan, Husan added.
He cited historical sources which suggest they both lived and practised religious rituals in the underground church and only left it after Christianity was embraced by Roman rulers.
The bishop deputy of the Greek Orthodox archdiocese, Archimandrite Nektarious, described the discovery as an "important milestone for Christians all around the world."
Researchers recovered pottery dating back to between the 3rd and 7th centuries, which they say suggests these first Christians and their followers lived in the area until late Roman rule.
Inside the cave there are several stone seats which are believed to have been for the clergy and a circular shaped area, thought to be the apse.
There is also a deep tunnel which is believed to have led to a water source, the archaeologist added.
Rihab is home to a total of 30 churches and Jesus and the Virgin Mary are believed to have passed through the area, Husan said.


Anger and Love has no limits : Heart touching short story

While Dad was polishing his new car,
his 4 yr old son picked stone & scratched lines on the side of the car.
In his anger, Dad took the child's hand & hit it many times, not
realizing he was using a wrench.
At the hospital, his child said "Dad when will my fingers grow back?"
Dad was so hurt.
He went back to car and kicked it a lot of times.
Sitting back he looked at the scratches,

child wrote "I LOVE YOU DAD"

Anger and Love has no limits...


Don't Wait

Don't wait for a smile to be nice

Don't wait to be loved, to love

Don't wait to be lonely, to recognize the value of a friend

Don't wait for the best job, to begin to work

Don't wait to have a lot, to share a bit

Don't wait for the fall, to remember the advice

Don't wait for pain, to believe in prayer
Don't wait to have time, to be able to serve

Don't wait for anybody else's pain, to ask for apologies

... neither separation to make it up

Don't wait

Because you Don't know how long it will take
